Soap Opera Star Has Second Thoughts, Returns to the Fold Soap Opera Digest
Just one day after news broke that a four-time Emmy winner was exiting a long-running daytime drama, the actress has changed her mind, Soap Opera Digest reports.
The publication reports that original cast member Susan Flannery has now decided to remain with CBS's "The Bold and the Beautiful." We reported yesterday that Flannery, who plays Stephanie Forrester on the soap opera, was leaving the show.
Flannery has reportedly signed a new deal with the show. Executive producer and head writer Bradley P. Bell told the publication: "She's been through a lot personally; we know that she had her own battle with cancer and she’s had such an amazing career that she will continue to have as Stephanie Forrester, but I think it's not so much as a disagreement between her and the show, but more Susan figuring out where she is right now and what she needs. Now, Susan is going to have an incredible time with a new storyline that we've never seen before; something completely unique and interesting."
Flannery is one of four cast members who have been on "Bold" since its debut. One of those four, Ronn Moss, announced his exit from the show two weeks ago.
