The road to redemption has been a rough one for THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Thomas over the past year. Having conceived a child with Caroline in an incident that could arguably be seen as either a huge misunderstanding or an act of inexcusable malfeasance, the Forrester playboy has struggled to navigate the fallout from that night.

So, too, has his portrayer, Pierson Fodé, been challenged to navigate his alter ego’s ethical tightrope of a storyline. “That scene [between Thomas and Caroline] was such a tough one for me to film, and I knew it was going to be treacherous territory,” he says, “but I think it’s a story that needed to be told, because it’s something that does happen [in real life].”
