It looks like Sheila will be getting a new partner in crime! THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL has just cast DAYS OF OUR LIVES alum Francisco San Martin as Mateo, an estate manager who goes to work for Eric Forrester. But while he’s supposed to be supervising the Forrester mansion, he catches the eye of the villainous Sheila who recruits him to destroy Eric’s marriage by seducing his wife, Quinn!
According to TV Insider, San Martin is scheduled to first air on Monday, Oct. 2. But will the handsome guy be able to seduce Quinn, who insists she loves Eric but also has feelings for his son, Ridge? He might have his work cut out for him. But you don’t want to disappoint Sheila!

San Martin got his start as the original Dario Hernandez on DAYS from 2010-11, a role later taken over by Jordi Vilasuso. Most recently, the actor guest-starred for an arc on the CW series JANE THE VIRGIN back in the spring of this year. He played Fabian Regalo del Cielo, a sexy telenovela actor who slept with Jane, played by Gina Rodriguez, who B&B fans might recall from her stint as Dayzee’s friend Beverly who worked as an intern at Forrester Creations.
While San Martin’s B&B gig seems like it could be relatively short-term, if he proves popular and has chemistry with other characters, who knows what the future could bring? With both Rome Flynn and Pierson Fodé leaving the soap, they could certainly use some more young hunks on the canvas!
