Soap veteran Crystal Chappell (Olivia, GUIDING LIGHT; Carly, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; Maggie, ONE LIFE TO LIVE) is adding another role to her resume -- and another gay character! EW.com broke the news that Chappell will be joining THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL cast as Danielle, the other mother of young Caroline Spencer (Linsey Godfrey), as the show launches its first-ever lesbian storyline. (Despite EW's opening line that B&B is bringing back a popular GL character, Chappell is not playing Olivia.) It's unclear at this point if Danielle and Joanna Johnson's Karen are still involved.
While Caroline knows that she has two mommies, the other folks in town aren't aware of her parentage. But the young lady will reveal the truth to her boyfriend Thomas and her Uncle Bill -- Karen's brother. Chappell's character will be introduced to the canvas in mid-May.
