Ex-GL Star Gives Stephanie "Hope"!

RousselHearst.jpg

Elvera Roussel, who played Hope Bauer Spaulding on GUIDING LIGHT from 1979-84, appears as a nurse on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL for a two-episode stint starting Wednesday, November 17. The actress will share screen time with Susan Flannery (Stephanie) and John McCook (Eric).

During her two-day B&B gig, Roussel also crossed paths off-camera with fellow GL alum Rick Hearst (Whip; Alan-Michael, GL). Although their characters were mother and son on GL, Roussel and Hearst never worked together on that soap. "Rick's always been marvelously loving and gracious. We've exchanged information and I hope we stay in touch," Roussel shares.

"I'm now hooked on B&B," the actress adds. "The writing is fantastic and the production values are amazing." As regular viewers of B&B know, Stephanie's been going through a medical crisis in her current storyline. "It's very important to share with viewers the realities of life," Roussel notes. "No matter how glamorous your life may seem everyone has to deal with reality."

hearst pic.jpg

Remember when THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Rick Hearst (Whip; ex-Ric, GENERAL HOSPITAL) announced that he'd booked a role on CASTLE? Well, now Soaps In Depth has the scoop on his episode of the hit ABC crime drama!

The actor will play Dr. Elliot Lefcourt, a wealthy anesthesiologist from the tony New York City suburb of Westchester, and Ever Carradine plays his wife, Mirielle, in "Murder Most Fowl." His character gets drawn into the mystery when problems from his beautiful new wife's past marriage lead Castle (played by ONE LIFE TO LIVE's Nathan Fillion, [ex-Joey], of course!) and Beckett to a shocking discovery. Is the dashing Dr. Lefcourt being truthful with the police... or is he part of a bigger conspiracy? "The great thing about Nathan is that it doesn't matter," Hearst tells In Depth of working with the daytime alum-turned-primetime star. "He greets everyone [so warmly.] He'll say, 'Welcome, welcome!' He's like the Pied Piper of that place."

Hearst's episode will air on Monday, November 8, at 10 p.m. EST.
