According to Entertainment Weekly, Givens will be guest-starring on B&B for three episodes as Dr. Phillips, Steffy’s obstetrician. Hopefully this doesn’t mean that Steffy is going to be having problems with the baby that doctors had previously told her she could never conceive! Givens is scheduled to begin filming now and her first episode is slated to air on Thursday, Feb. 15.
Givens first hit it big on the ABC sitcom HEAD OF THE CLASS in 1986 and has also appeared in shows like THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR, 90210, and ONCE UPON A TIME. On the big screen, the actress has been in films such as Boomerang and A Rage in Harlem.
This isn’t the first time that B&B has tapped a famous celeb for a cameo or short-term role. Just last year, Gilles Marini played a doctor and HAPPY DAYS star Don Most appeared as a handyman who tried to help Spectra Fashions with some electrical problems!
