Thorsten Kaye on All My Children Web Revival: "If They Couldn’t Do it Right They Should Have Left it Alone"By Jillian Bowe on December 09, 2013
The Bold and the Beautiful's Thorsten Kaye isn't holding back about Prospect Park's efforts to continue All My Children. Kaye sat down with Tainted Dreams blogger and Soap Opera Digest columnist Carolyn Hinsey to dish taking over the role of Ridge on B&B. He also became very frank when discussing All My Children's second demise.
Carolyn: Were you surprised that AMC fizzled out the way it did?
Thorsten: Yeah, I was. Because the studio was open and the sets were up. Everything was in place. I would have thought if they were going to pull the plug they would have done it before. I’m not a businessman. I’m sure there were a lot of things going on with investors. But I’ll tell you this: Both of those shows failed for reasons unrelated to their quality. READ MORE
How will The Bold and the Beautiful's Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) react to everything that has transpired during his absence, namely former wife Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) having played hide-the-sword with Bill (Don Diamont)? Could Brooke's actions cause Ridge to look in her little sister Katie's (Heather Tom) direction?
TV Guide Magazine: Given your love for twisted romance, will you have Ridge fall Katie? It would drive Bill and Brooke crazy!
Bell: [Laughs] Well... maybe I will. Anything is possible! Thorsten makes a fantastic Ridge — very different from [predecessor] Ronn Moss. He'll really electrify the show. Bill has been cock-of-the-walk for way too long. He needs a little competition! And that's exactly what he's going to get! We're going to find out that Ridge has gone through something very significant during his time away — something that's really changed him. There's only one Ronn Moss and he was splendid, but now we have a new and very different Ridge and it's exciting to write for him.

I don't know about any other fans of the SoCal-set sudser, but I will definitely have my eye on the fashion on Dec. 13. Watch the scorching promo after the jump!
Goodbye scarves and Speedos, hello scruff and couture hockey jerseys? In the Dec. 2-16 issue of CBS Soaps In Depth, Brad Bell answered many burning questions about the casting of All My Children superstar Thorsten Kaye as Ridge Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful. Here's an excerpt:
Q. This casting choice seems to indicate that you're not looking to replicate Ronn's portrayal. Will this new version of Ridge be different not only in looks but also in personality?
"Absolutely. We're going to write a Ridge that is very reflective of Thorsten. I get so much of my inspiration from the actors and what they bring to the role, so I'll be studying him very closely and trying to capture his spirit and play to his strengths." READ MORE
