The Forrester Family is growing again as Matthew Atkinson joins the cast of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL as the much-missed Thomas Forrester beginning on Thursday, March 14! He will be the fourth adult actor to portray the character, most recently played by Pierson Fodé. “We are thrilled you are here with us portraying Thomas!” the soap tweeted when the news broke.
Atkinson will be familiar to CBS Daytime fans from his stint as Austin Travers on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS from 2014-15. During his time in Genoa City, Austin started as a television cameraman before graduating to kidnapper, but his romance with Summer Newman hit the skids when he was unexpectedly found murdered!
Before joining Y&R, Atkinson had roles on JANE BY DESIGN and PARENTHOOD, and after leaving daytime, he could be seen in shows like YOUNG & HUNGRY, POWERLESS, and NCIS: LOS ANGELES. And now the actor is returning to daytime to bring Thomas back to B&B. The Forrester heir was last seen in the spring of 2018 when he returned to New York City to live with Caroline and their son, Douglas.
What brings Thomas back home again? And will he attempt to rekindle his relationship with Sally? Stay tuned to find out and for more B&B casting news, keep reading the CBS edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!
