‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ cast photo was missing a few actors

There was lots to celebrate yesterday for The Bold and the Beautiful cast. The show is celebrating its 35th anniversary and a two-year renewal by CBS. The cast gathered for its annual group photo to honor the big occasion.

Everyone was smiling as they posed for the picture, yet fans couldn’t help noticing many actors were missing. Notable names like Denise Richards, Katrina Bowden, Heather Tom, and Jennifer Gareis were absent. On Twitter, fans voiced their suspicion over the actors’ absence.

“Are Shauna and Flo no longer on the show?” asked one viewer. “Where is KATIE? I miss her and Donna for that matter,” another commenter chimed in.

Denise Richards and Katrina Bowden reportedly dropped from the show

Richards and Bowden’s absence from The Bold and the Beautiful cast photo isn’t surprising. Their characters, Shauna and Flo Fulton, haven’t been seen in months. Rumors about the actors being fired began in December 2021 after viewers noticed their names missing from the closing credits.

Shauna and Flo debuted on the show in 2019 and shook up the lives of the Forresters and Spencers. Flo found herself in trouble after participating in the baby switch of Hope Logan’s (Annika Noelle) daughter. Meanwhile, Shauna began a flirtation with Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) and plotted to break up his marriage to Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang).

Despite making Flo a Logan and redeeming her, the character never connected with fans. As for Shauna, viewers loved her relationship with Ridge. But after she and Ridge broke up, the writers didn’t have anything for the character.

The missing Logan sisters

Gareis plays Donna Logan on the soap opera and recently was in a big storyline. Donna and her ex-husband Eric Forrester (John McCook) were on the verge of a reunion until he decided to stay with Quinn Fuller (Rena Sofer). Donna hasn’t been seen since November 2021, and with Gareis on recurring status, there’s no telling when she’ll be seen again.

Meanwhile, Tom’s award-winning performances as Katie Logan have pushed her to the forefront of the show. However, in the past year, Katie hasn’t been featured much. Her last appearance came in January 2022 in a scene with Carter Walton (Lawrence Saint-Victor). Tom is doing directorial work for other series, and with her busy schedule, fans wonder if she’s leaving The Bold and the Beautiful.
