If it’s summer, it must mean another trip overseas for THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL! And this year’s trip to Monaco is going to include a very special guest star: French-American actor Gilles Marini, who will be making his third appearance on the internationally famous soap!

During the summer storyline, the Spectra and Forrester fashion houses will compete against each other in a swimwear fashion show, and some characters will be attending the annual Spencer Summit. Last summer saw Quinn and Eric’s secret relationship exposed, but what drama will befall them this year? Well, ET Online is reporting that Marini will be playing a doctor who has to unexpectedly treat one of the B&B characters in Monaco. Illness? Injury? You’ll just have to tune in on Friday, July 28, to find out!
Marini’s appearance is slated for just two episodes, which is one more than the other times he guest-starred on B&B. In 2005, he played a waiter, and in 2007, he played a character named Jean Claude. The actor has also appeared in the Sex and the City movie, as well as the primetime series BROTHERS & SISTERS, UGLY BETTY, DIRTY SEXY MONEY, and CRIMINAL MINDS. He’s also well-known to DANCING WITH THE STARS fans for being the runner-up in season eight and returning for the 15th season as one of the All-Stars.

Over its 30 years on the air, B&B has had its fair share of guest stars from Phyllis Diller’s recurring role as Sally’s partner in crime, Gladys, to Perez Hilton as the minister who presided over Quinn and Eric’s wedding. Heck, some of them even take home Daytime Emmy Awards for their work, like Fred Willard as John Forrester and Jim O’Heir as frequent flier Matt! (Who may just show up again this summer as someone’s seatmate on their way to Monaco!)
