    • Thorsten: (On his screen test with his former co-star and current love, Susan Haskell) I walk in and learn I have to do a kissing scene. Susan comes up to me and says, 'I just want to tell you that there will be no tongues.' I thought, 'Great, because that's what I wanted to do, tongue everybody and go home.' It was very awkward; I tease her about it now.

  • Playing Ridge on Bold and the Beautiful

    I didn't think I would be able to accept him as Ridge, But I have to admit I am very drawn to the Show now with him as Ridge. I hope that they will end the Ridge-Brooke Line. I love him with Katie. And the role he is doing right now with not knowing who he is and what happened, He is doing such a remarkable job. I don't know how he does it, but he plays a great role. Please keep him and Katie togeather. And this is off of Ridge, but I hate Wyatt and Quinn. Wyatt needs to be with Stephy. They are more alike. I can't stand Quinn at all in any way shape or form. I am glad decan is back, but He is gonna do nothing but lie and cheat and break hipes heart all over again. She needs to stay with Liam period...............moreless
