Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) threw soap fans into a tizzy when she posted a photo of herself and co-star John McCook (Eric) with AS THE WORLD TURNS legend Colleen Zenk (Barbara) on the set of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL!

With Zenk’s ATWT character a fashion designer, it would be a fun crossover if they introduced Barbara Ryan over on B&B! Unfortunately, it turns out this was just the East Coast-based actress paying a visit to her friend, Lang, while in California.

“I had never met John before,” Zenk reveals to Soaps In Depth, “but had seen him in The Pajama Game in 1972 when I got my Equity card. We have a million theater friends in common. What a lovely man!

“We sat in John’s dressing room and just shared stories for an hour or so,” she adds. “And then I got on the train to San Diego!”

It’s a shame it was just a friendly personal visit, because we can’t stop imagining Barbara Ryan going to work for Forrester Creations!
