Tanner Novlan plays Dr. John “Finn” Finnegan on the soap opera

Novlan joined The Bold and the Beautiful in July 2020 as a new love interest for Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood). After her motorcycle crash, Finn treated Steffy for injuries, and a romance blossomed. However, their relationship faced a huge challenge when Steffy became pregnant after a drunken one-night stand with Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton).

Finn vowed to stay by Steffy’s side even when a DNA test revealed Liam was the father. However, Vinny Walker (Joe LoCicero) admitted altering the results, and Finn was the father. Finn and Steffy welcomed their son Hayes Finnegan (Piper Harriot) in July 2021 and married shortly afterward.

Yet, their wedding day was plagued with drama by Finn’s birth mother, Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown). Finn and Steffy’s disagreement over letting Sheila into their lives has impacted their marriage. Their relationship will be further tested as Sheila continues to destroy the Forresters.

After her stint on the daytime serial, Ewell starred in The Vampire Diaries and Roswell: New Mexico. In 2020, she returned to the soap opera as a stand-in for Steffy and Finn’s love scenes. Due to the COVId-19 guidelines, the show used the actor’s real-life spouses for the love scenes. In a July 2020 interview with Soaps In Depth, Novlan said his wife was “definitely game” when asked to fill in.
