What are some of Tanner Novian’s inside thoughts on his storyline in ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’?

Novian was recently interviewed via Soap Central and in the discussion, he tried his best to elaborate on the character’s dynamic with Steffy. He stated, “I think he’s slowly learning more and more about her, because, at first, he is very professional and very clinical.

But as he sees the dynamics of the family, and he’s able to observe the relationships that are around her, and he learns how amazing she is, and of course, how beautiful and intriguing and interesting a woman she is, how could you not get sucked in?”

Only time will tell what CBS has in store for this new and attractive character who has already become a fan favorite.
