Bradley Bell reveals that dolls will get their own story on Bold


Recommended Posts

I didn't put this in the spoiler thread because he doesn't give much information but it sounds utterly stupid.

 

BBC: The one question that has come up consistently amongst cast members and their friends is 'What are you guys doing with the dolls?'

 

Bell: Well, the dolls are working! They've been kind of a hit with the press. So we're going to lean into the dolls a little bit. We have a storyline coming up that actually involves a doll as a character and not just a stand-in. So that's a little sneak peek into something we've never done before, but under these circumstances you get new ideas for story and this should be a fun one.

 

 

BBC: Can you tell us anything more.

 

Bell: Well it's amazing what some of these artists in L.A. can do. They can make dolls the spitting image of someone so the dolls are just getting started on The Bold and the Beautiful.

Here's the whole podcast that DaytimeConfidential is quoting.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/w3cszvbl
Someone from the BBC briefly interviews two B&B fans (including Matt Hanvey) to ask about the show.

The interviewer spent two weeks observing the cast and crew and talks about what she observed regarding COVID protocols. 

There is a lot of Bradley Bell speaking throughout the podcast
Bradley talks about his family, how he began to write.  He talks about B&B actors using their real-life spouses or significant others as body doubles for kissing. (There is a Steffy spoiler implied).
He said they didn't use Kelly Kruger (Darin Brooks' wife) as a Flo double because Kelly is home with a baby and didn't want do it. So in the Flo/Wyatt scenes, Darin Brooks is kissing a doll/mannequin but Katrina Bowden is kissing her husband.
 

The part about using a doll or dolls in a storyline is something Bradley mentions at the end -- but it's not the focus of the podcast.  He says they found real-life skilled artisans in LA who can make mannequins that could look amazingly like anyone -- and he implied that B&B hired them to make a doll or dolls to be used in that new storyline.

Thanks for posting the full podcast!

They have done it before though? Brooke thought the baby dolls were her children, and Omar making a wax version of Taylor for her open casket funeral was a major plot point?

 

I guess Bradley enjoyed getting attention from people snarking about the dolls in major publications. 

 

I've never been so embarrassed to watch soaps....

The dolls will probably end up with more story than the black characters.

This. And the sad part is Bell thinks it's funny and entertaining. Nevermind the fact that all his goofy interviews about dolls did nothing but make B&B return with 1.2 million less viewers. He loves a goofy gimmick, anything for a laugh or attention no matter how detrimental it is to the genre as a whole. 

 

I always feel bad for his actors. Even when the show returned he spent more time talking about dolls and spouse stand-ins than actual storylines or compelling storytelling.

If we have dolls coming to life, Bradley must have been a Closeted Passions fan!😂😂


Next up Juliet Mills(or Jennifer Rhodes lol) is hired as the new back from the dead Stephanie after Steffy learns of her secret occult heritage and realizes that Stephanie and Pam were actual witches while Hope and Flo are shocked to learn the Logan women are descended from a long line of succubuses!

LOL, I love me some Juliet Mills, but even she's too good to get caught in Bell's shenanigans.
