The Most Iconic The Bold and the Beautiful Characters

The creators of “The Bold and the Beautiful” deserve a round of applause for their ability to combine relatable characters with the most fantastical storylines.

You may watch for the drama, but the characters will undoubtedly keep you hooked.

There have been numerous moments on “B&B” that made us wish we could teleport to Los Angeles, either to save a character from certain death or, perhaps more selfishly, to spare ourselves the agony of witnessing another bad decision.

It sure beats screaming out our TV screens as another completely avoidable disaster occurs on our favorite soap.

More importantly, we would like to get a closer look at the lives and minds of these captivating characters.

We’d love to gain deeper insight into their motivations and share in their moments of reflection. What stories would they tell? What secrets might they reveal over a shared toast?

Take a look at the 10 best and most iconic characters of the bold and the beautiful.

1. Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang)

Brooke has had many pivotal moments during her time on “B&B.” Whether you love her or hate her, she is impossible to avoid.

We imagine she would go for an upscale, artisanal café with a chic interior to complement her high-fashion tastes. Given Brooke’s history of alcoholism, we would suggest a coffee date to help her stay sober.

While we can not ignore Brooke Logan’s numerous marriages on “The Bold and the Beautiful,” there is so much more to this complex character.

Brooke is anything but naive. Her professional success and ability to always get what she wants attest to her sharp intellect. This brings us to an important question for Brooke: “What truly drives your search for love?”

With over 14 trips down the aisle, only a few of which resulted in legally recognized marriages, we can not help but wonder if Brooke could find more happiness by taking time for herself.

While no one can predict the future of her relationship with Ridge, it would not be surprising if they married again, possibly spending more years trying to make it work. They might end up together because no one else wants them.

We would also encourage Brooke to remain neutral in the Ridge vs. Eric debate. Choosing between father and son may cause irreversible damage.

2. Eric Forrester (John McCook)

The feud between Eric and his son, Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye), becomes more intense by the day, and we have some thoughts about the hypocritical Forrester family patriarch.

Eric has long been a peacemaker, intervening in the affairs of others. He even attempted to force his family to forgive and forget his ex-wife Quinn Fuller’s (Rena Sofer’s) past.

Yet, even as he clashes with Ridge, threatening to split the family, but he remains unyielding. Eric really should take a step back!

He appears to be clouding his judgment with hidden resentment over the story of Ridge Forrester’s true father.

While he claims Forrester Creations is his passion, his stubborn attitude has cost the company several talented employees.

The current feud with Ridge is over Eric’s hasty decision to launch a new fashion line. His desire to establish his legacy in the fashion industry appears to outweigh the possibility of permanently separating his family.

This conflict is not limited to the Forrester family; it is affecting other relationships.

Katie Logan (Heather Tom) and Carter Walton (Lawrence Saint-Victor) recently disagreed on which side to take, which is just one result of the Ridge vs. Eric plot.

And if Brooke Logan sides with “Team Eric,” the consequences could spread throughout the Logan family. Eric, you’ve caused the Logan and Forrester families enough distress.

Set aside your pride and listen to Ridge, who brings extensive experience and knowledge of Forrester Creations to the table.

3. Caroline Spencer

You might argue that Ridge’s virginal first wife wasn’t on long enough and wasn’t colorful enough to merit such a high ranking.

In some countries, B&B was simply referred to as Caroline because she was so well-known. In addition, Joanna Johnson returned as her twin following her death.

4. Bill Spencer (Don Diamont)

A gentleman’s bar seems like the ideal setting for a meeting with tycoon Bill Spencer. Bill is known for dominating any room he enters, which could lead to an intense conversation.

We would expect him to opt for a coffee as dark as his heart or a scotch so bitter that it could shake even the most hardened souls.

To avoid his notoriously intimidating gaze (and that ever-present sword necklace), we would strategically choose a seat that provided some respite if the conversation veered off track.

Bill, why does your unwavering commitment appear to be limited to your business ventures rather than your romantic relationships?

Constantly longing for one woman while admiring her sister is not a recipe for happiness — we do not make the rules.

Speaking of mistakes, collaborating with Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan) to confront Sheila Carter without protecting yourself was reckless.

Your arrogance cost us a golden opportunity to put her away for good. But here’s a word of caution, Bill: Sheila is on the loose once more, and we have learned that she rarely tolerates betrayals.

Here’s hoping you are better at protecting your back than you were at betraying her.

5. Ridge Forrester

Since the soap’s debut, the Speedo-loving ladies’ man has alternately fascinated and infuriated viewers as he ping-ponged between bedmates — usually (but hardly exclusively!) his favorite wives, Brooke Logan and Taylor Hayes — and inspired subsequent waffler Liam Spencer.

6. Sally Spectra I (Darlene Conley)

Sally Spectra is still a popular character, known for her upbeat personality and sharp wit. Who could forget her signature big red hair, daring fashion choices, and ongoing feud with the Forrester clan?

While we do not always agree with her use of Forrester’s designs, we can not help but admire how it sometimes gives the Forresters a taste of their own medicine.

Sally was one of the few who could match Eric’s wit, creating an enthralling spectacle for the audience.
We would like to have a drink with Sally on a tropical island, possibly served by one of her cabana boys.

We imagine she would choose an exotic cocktail based on her specific preferences. Sally is the ideal companion, fiercely loyal to the people she cares about.

She has made mistakes, as have all of the other characters on “The Bold and the Beautiful.” Her relationship with her daughter, Macy Alexander (Bobbie Eakes), helped viewers get a better sense of her personality.

Despite their frequent disagreements, Sally was a mother who tried to balance her ambitions and maternal duties.

We would also like to express our condolences for her agonizing decision to remove Macy from life support.

Such a decision can shatter a person, but despite her deep sadness, Sally honored Darla Einstein’s (Schae Harrison) request for peace by naming her daughter Alexandria after Macy.

Sally was not without flaws, but having a champion like her on their side would benefit everyone.

7. Amber Moore

“Scheme the impossible scheme” must have been the motto of this troublesome gold digger. She slept her way from Furnace Creek to the lap of luxury, pausing only to ask “Who is the daddy?” or agitate the situation on The Young and the Restless.

8. Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown Pelzer)

While we approach the prospect with caution, something is appealing about sharing coffee with Sheila. Our burning question for her is, “Who comes first on your list, Bill Spencer or Deacon Sharpe?”

Sheila’s extensive criminal record before this duo worked together to neutralize her included everything from murder and prison breaks to theft, attempted poisoning, identity fraud, and other crimes.

And then there are the numerous “accidents” with which she conveniently avoids being associated. Sheila’s numerous stints in psychiatric institutions are also noteworthy, with each admission stemming from a remarkably diverse set of offenses.

However, her consistent ability to flee is the common thread running through her misdemeanors.

Given their track record, we have to wonder why Deacon and Bill did not take a more strategic approach, especially since Sheila’s revenge plans are almost certainly in the works.

On another note, we are curious: Could Sheila return to “The Young and the Restless”? While Sheila appears to be fixated on her son, John Finnegan (Tanner Novlan), it is only a matter of time before her focus shifts. We are hoping for some inside information on her next moves.

9. Deacon Sharpe

The sexy conniver who infamously arranged for Bridget Forrester’s family to listen in on the phone as he deflowered her, then knocked up her mother, reappears every few years to ensure that he has not been out-scoundrelled by an even bigger cad.

10. Maya Avant

Though the Forrester Creations model was not the first transgender character on daytime television—that honor went to The City’s Azure (also a model) in 1995—Maya is the longest-running and most popular.
