Actress and singer Kiara Barnes has joined the cast of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL as Zoe, a mystery woman who shares a secret past with Xander Avant. “I’m very excited to share the news!” Barnes shared on Instagram when her casting was announced. “I’ll be joining the cast at B&B as a new lead and series regular, Zoe. I’m feeling more than blessed for this opportunity. Can’t wait to share what I’ve been cooking up. Cheers to a new chapter!”
Barnes recently released her EP, Sirens to the Moon, on iTunes and Spotify, but so far there are no details as to whether or not her character of Zoe will also be musically inclined and performing on B&B. This will be the performer’s daytime debut, and it would seem her acting debut as well, since her IMDb page is completely blank aside from a couple of photos!
Excited to announce the official release of my EP, Sirens to the Moon is out & available on iTunes & Spotify. Link in bio! Big thank you to everyone supporting me through this project🕊🙌🏽 S/O to @trianbampol @dureen for shooting this amazing cover art. 💫✨@lodblakely on typography 🔥 #kikibarnes #SirenstotheMoon
Barnes made her first appearance on July 9, and as the actress is reportedly on contract with the soap, she should be around for a while. Given that Zoe has been revealed to be Xander's obsessive ex-girlfriend, she's certain to create a lot of drama on the soap. Stay tuned to see what other secrets she may be hiding, and for more B&B news, keep reading the CBS edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!
