Be sure to tune in to CRIMINAL MINDS on Wednesday, October 19, to see THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Heather Tom (Katie) in a very different role! In the episode titled "From Childhood's Hour," the BAU team investigates the abductions of young children with troubled mothers in St. Louis. "I play this woman who is kind of not the best mom in the world; we get kidnapped, and I have to convince my daughter to let this guy kill me. So it's this really dark, ugly, horrible thing," Tom tells Soaps In Depth, teasing her role in the episode.
The Emmy-winner adds that playing the part of Connie in the CBS primetime drama "was very challenging, but I had a blast doing it. And it's on CBS, so there was no issue [with B&B] about letting me do it, which was great."
The guest-starring gig also reunited Tom with her former THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS co-star Shemar Moore, who played Malcolm opposite her Victoria on B&B's sister soap. "I got to work with Shemar, which was cool. I haven't seen him in a while."
Tune in to CRIMINAL MINDS tomorrow night at 9 p.m. EST on CBS.
