A very familiar face showed up at the hospital when actress Robin Givens joined the cast of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL! Currently recurring as Mayor Sierra McCoy on the CW primetime drama RIVERDALE, Givens was hired to appear in a few episodes in February and has continued to make sporadic appearances every time Steffy visited the doctor. And now with Hope also expecting her own bundle of joy, she'll probably continue to pop up even more!

When Givens was first cast as Dr. Phillips, Steffy’s obstetrician, some fans worried that there could be complications with this miracle pregnancy, considering that Steffy wasn't supposed to be able to get pregnant anymore, but thankfully that was not the case. The doc has simply appeared every time Steffy goes for a routine checkup, and was there when she had to give birth early, and helped save little Kelly's life.
Givens first hit it big on the ABC sitcom HEAD OF THE CLASS in 1986 and has also appeared in shows like THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR, 90210, and ONCE UPON A TIME. On the big screen, the actress has been in films such as Boomerang and A Rage in Harlem.
This isn’t the first time that B&B has tapped a famous celeb for a cameo or short-term role. Just last year, Gilles Marini played a doctor and HAPPY DAYS star Don Most appeared as a handyman who tried to help Spectra Fashions with some electrical problems!
