Before the skeletons and worms in the closets of The Queen’s Khoza family and Isibaya’s Ngwenya family, had us glued to our television screens, we were hooked to the drama, secrets, and glamour of Forrester family from The Bold and the Beautiful.
For decades, we invited the Forrester family and their fashion house business Forrester Creations into our homes during prime time, gasping in disbelief as Brooke Logan went from being family head, Eric Forrester’s son’s girlfriend, then his mistress, then his wife, then his son’s mistress again and back to being his wife again! While the scandalous love triangles, husband snatching Brooke Logan created often left us appalled and slightly uncomfortable, the Bold and the Beautiful offered an escape from the realities of our own lives.
Having aired for 30 years and boasting 26.2 million viewers worldwide, with 500 000 of those being from South Africa, it is little surprise that the cast and crew would choose the beautifully glamorous destination of Monte Carlo in Monaco, to celebrate their 30th anniversary. While, the cast lived up to the name of the show and got dressed to the nines, to celebrate the milestone in Monaco, South Africans can also look forward to an exclusive visit from some of the show’s cast members who will be heading to our shores as part of their global publicity tour to celebrate the anniversary.
Scheduled to visit the country from 21 to 26 October 2017, South African fans will have the chance to see Jacob Young who plays Rick Forrester, Heather Tom who stars as Katie Logan as well as Forrester Creations lead model and wife of Rick Forrester, Maya Avant Forrester, played by Karla Mosley. The three cast members will not only take in the country’s beautiful and iconic landmarks such as Table Mountain and Robben Island, but will also host mall activations within Mall of Africa and Maponya Mall in Soweto during their visit.
So if you are a die-hard fan of the soapie and want the chance to celebrate with some of the show’s crew, keep an eye out for more details on where and when to catch the trio during their visit.
