However, in recent months, the character’s taken a backseat to his brother Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton). Wyatt has made a few appearances with his fiancée Flo Fulton (Katrina Bowden). He also became involved in a power struggle with Justin Barber (Aaron D. Spears) tried to take over Spencer Publications following Liam and Bill Spencer’s (Don Diamont) incarceration for murder. Since then, everything’s been quiet on Wyatt’s front, although fans hope he’ll get another decent storyline.

Darin Brooks’ other projects throughout the years

Although Brooks is mainly known for his soap opera work on The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of Our Lives, the actor’s shown he can do more than daytime. Brooks’ other projects include the films The Missing Sister, Her Secret Family Killer, and Gold Dust.

Brooks also showed off his comedic skills in the short-lived Spike TV sitcom Blue Mountain State, where he met his wife. Now, Brooks will once again show his humourous and family-friendly side when The Croods: Family Tree premieres later this month.
