Popular soapie The Bold & the Beautiful has a new leading man after Ronn Moss quit as Ridge.

Say hello to the new Ridge Forrester! THORSTEN KAYE will be filling the very big shoes left by Ronn Moss, who quit the popular soapie last year after 25 years.


The 47-year-old actor is no stranger to soapieland, having starred in One Life to Live and All My Children, for which he was nominated for two Daytime Emmy Awards. His additional credits include a recurring role on the TV series Smash.

“Thorsten’s powerful screen presence and vast range as an actor has intrigued me for years,” Bold executive producer/head writer Bradley Bell said. “The timing was right so I took the opportunity to cast him in the role of Ridge. I’m confident Thorsten will make this role unique on every level.”

He makes his debut on The Bold on 13 December in the US but will feature on SA screens only in next year.
