DC's Top 10 Female Entertainers of 2012
No. 2: Susan Flannery, The Bold and the Beautiful
One of daytime television's greatest treasures since the early years of Days of Our Lives, Susan Flannery has been the living, breathing embodiment of The Bold and the Beautiful from its first week on the air back in 1987. This is why we still can't believe she's gone.
Before she and her character Stephanie Forrester said their goodbyes, Flannery provided B&B fans with one last stellar season of incomparable performances. When La Forrester's lung cancer came out of remission, Flannery came out swinging.
There would be no limping across the finish line for this Lady of the Lake. Right up until Stephanie coughed her bloody, last breath, Flannery offered up a master class in acting. B&B and the soap opera in general will never be the same.
