Bridget is back! Ashley Jones is returning to THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL for another visit. “I have a really deep affinity for B&B," she admitted to Soaps In Depth during a recent chat. "And I always will. So any time they want to write for Bridget, those are my roots, so I would love to do that. And with Bridget, I think there's plenty of story to tell."
Jones took over the role of Eric and Brooke’s daughter in 2004 from Emily Harrison, who only lasted a few months in the role after Jennifer Finnigan had vacated it. She left in 2010, returned in a recurring status from 2011-12, and continued to reappear for brief stints in 2013 and 2015. The last time viewers saw Bridget was in February of 2016 when she returned to help deal with some family drama (Brooke had just confessed her love to Bill!).
Before B&B, Jones had appeared on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS from 1997-2000, earning two Daytime Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Younger Actress in the process. After leaving B&B, the actress starred as Daphne on the second season of HBO’s supernatural drama TRUE BLOOD and appeared in numerous Lifetime movies like A Teacher’s Crime, Secrets From Her Past, and A Sister’s Revenge. In 2016, Jones was cast as Parker Forsyth on the ABC sudser GENERAL HOSPITAL, and she made sporadic appearances as that character until 2017.
At this time, there’s no information as to what storyline brings Bridget back to town, or when her first air date will be, so be sure to stay tuned as more details are announced. And for more B&B casting news, keep reading the CBS edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!
