Bold and the Beautiful introduced Paris Buckingham out of nowhere, but who is she, who plays her, and what’s ahead for her on the CBS soap opera? Here’s a look at Diamond White‘s character, the talent behind Paris, and what to expect on B&B.
Who is Diamond White? The New Actress on Bold and the Beautiful
Last week, we met Paris Buckingham, previously unknown sister of Zoe Buckingham (Kiara Barnes). She’s played by 21-year-old Diamond White, a singer, and actress. Her first role was singing as Young Nala in a stage show of The Lion King at age 11.
At the tender age of 13, way before Diamond was on Bold and the Beautiful, Diamond competed on X-Factor. She wowed judges and the audience, and her mentor on the show was Britney Spears. Diamond White finished fifth in the reality singing competition but earned high praise.
At age 14, the Bold and the Beautiful actress scored a role on The Big Bang Theory (also a CBS show), and Diamond scored a regular role on The Haunted Hathaways on Nickelodeon. Diamond White also voice acted for Disney on Sofia the First and Phineas and Ferb.
In 2015, Diamond released her debut album, Pressure. Then, she scored roles in the Madea Halloween movie and its sequel. At the age of 18, Diamond White moved into more serious acting, appearing on Dear White People and a run on Empire as Lala. Now, she’s Paris Buckingham on Bold and the Beautiful.
What’s Next for Paris Buckingham – Will She Stick Around at B&B?
For many Bold and the Beautiful fans, it mystified them that Zoe suddenly got a mystery sister, but both Paris and her big sister are part of the character canvas to stay. It remains to be seen if their TV dad, Reese Buckingham (Wayne Brady), will ever pop up with them.
Diamond is on contract at Bold and the Beautiful as Paris Buckingham, so she’ll stay. Already, Paris vibed with handsome recast Delon de Metz as Zende Forrester. However, Zoe tried to warn Paris away by saying he’s still entangled with his ex – which is not entirely true.
It’s more that Zoe herself would like to tangle with Zende, say Bold and the Beautiful spoilers. So, when Paris Buckingham finds out her sister fibbed about the hunk, they might have words. B&B spoilers promise sisterly rivalry between Zoe and Paris as they bicker over men.
Will Paris Wind up at Forrester Creations Too on Bold and the Beautiful?
Another question from B&B fans is whether they’ll have Paris Buckingham stick to social work or come over to Forrester Creations. Remember, Paris just graduated from college with a degree in something unique. But most everyone on the CBS sudser is in fashion, PR, or publishing.
So, to keep Paris front and center on Bold and the Beautiful, will they need to pull her away from her social work roots? Perhaps she’ll work with Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) on one of his pet charities. Then again, Hope for the Future has a philanthropic side that might fit Paris.
Plus, there’s Dr. Finn (Tanner Novlan) now on Bold and the Beautiful. And hospitals need social workers. So, wait to see how they weave Paris Buckingham into the storylines – and whether she winds up in a professional rivalry (as well as romantic ones) with her big sister on B&B.
And be sure to watch for lots more of Diamond White as Paris Buckingham on CBS daytime.
