The Bold And The Beautiful News: Kim Matula Back To Work
The Bold and The Beautiful spoilers and updates reveal Actress Kimberly Matula has landed a starring role in the upcoming feature film, Tapawingo. Matula played Hope Logan on The Bold and the Beautiful, a role in which she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award in the Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series Category. Matula’s Hope was initially played by a series of child actors until the role was SORASed into a teenager and Matula took over the role in 2010.
The character, the child of Brooke Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan) had Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) and Nick Marone (Jack Wagner) as father figures. Hope was pitted against Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) in the same fashion that her mother, Brooke, was the mortal enemy of Steffy’s mother, Taylor Forrester (Hunter Tylo). Matula left the show in 2015 and recast Annika Noelle did not take up the role of Hope Logan until 2018.
Matula’s Hope Logan was the center of a popular love triangle between brothers Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks) and Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton). It appears that Matula will be surrounded by heartthrobs again as her new independent movie stars Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) and Billy Zane (Titanic).
