Forrester is getting another new employee — Nia Sioux from DANCE MOMS is joining the cast of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL! “I’m on set of the world’s most-watched daytime drama!” she announced on Instagram. “Tune in April 24th and see me as Emma the Forrester Intern!” Although it turns out that her actual first airdate was on April 23. But 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.”
So be sure to check out Sioux’s daytime debut as Emma, and see what kind of drama she causes in the Forrester offices. Or maybe she won’t cause it, but just get caught up in it? You’ll have to tune in and find out as her story continues — especially since this is no longer just a cameo or guest appearance!
