Forrester Creations got a new employee with a familiar face — Nia Sioux from DANCE MOMS joined the cast of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL on April 23, 2018. “I’m on set of the world’s most-watched daytime drama!” she gushed on Instagram. And even before her first episode had aired, Sioux had even better news to share! "So excited to join the family as a series regular!" she tweeted shortly before her daytime debut.
One of the original cast members of Lifetime’s DANCE MOMS series, Sioux left the reality show after seven seasons to pursue other opportunities. “The show has been a great platform, but it’s time to move on,” she told Teen Vogue. “During the show, I couldn’t take all the opportunities that I wanted to, and now since I’m off the show I’m getting to do what I want to do.”
Although she’s pursuing music and acting, Sioux admitted that dance would always be a part of her life. “No matter what I’m doing, dance is still going to be there,” she confided. “But I definitely want to go into other things. I have acting going on, music… performing is just part of who I am.”
Upon her introduction, Emma was immediately smitten with fellow Forrester intern, Xander Avant, and the two began a cute little romance. Unfortunately, it became complicated when his obsessed ex-girlfriend, Zoe, followed him from London. Although Xander promised Emma she was the one he wanted, she couldn’t help but get jealous every time she saw Zoe around him. Especially since Emma wanted to wait before taking their relationship to the next level and Zoe was more than willing to do whatever Xander wanted.
When Emma was accused to cyberstalking Hope (it was actually Zoe who was responsible), it was revealed that her last name is Barber and she's Justin's niece. But her loyalty to Forrester proved she wasn't there as a spy for Spencer. Stay tuned as her story continues and for more B&B casting news, keep reading the CBS edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!
