Here's a exclusive look at @IngoRademacher's first shoot on #BoldandBeautiful! Stay tuned to see him as Thorne Forrester on Monday, Nov. 27. pic.twitter.com/FvZZ14vrYS— Bold & The Beautiful (@BandB_CBS) October 18, 2017
"You can't try to be someone else, but I certainly hope to play Thorne as well as Winsor did," Rademacher told TV Insider when his casting was announced. "He’s really one of the nicest and most gracious people I’ve ever met. He tweeted over this past weekend that his role was being recast and I read the comments and a lot of people weren’t happy. There was a lot of support for Winsor, and rightly so. I said to my wife, 'Wow, I feel kind of bad about this.' I mean, I know it’s the way things go in daytime, but this is a new experience for me. I’ve never stepped into a role that was previously played by someone else. I hope the fans aren’t too upset about this."
Rademacher will first air as Thorne on November 27.
"The Bold and the Beautiful" airs weekdayss on CBS.
