Bold and the Beautiful wraps filming on location – in Italy!
The Bold and The Beautiful shoot in Italy for 5 days
If the filming schedule of the Bold and the Beautiful location shoot in Italy held, it wrapped on May 11, 2012. The five day shoot will result in 8-10 episodes that will air in the US in late spring 2012.
The Bold and the Beautiful shoots on location
Location shoots were a feature in daytime soap operas during the heyday of the soap opera era – namely the 80’s and 90’s. Characters would find themselves in exotic locales faced with adventure and romance. Location episodes are a treat for soap opera fans, both stateside and in the locales where the location shoot takes place.
Unlike many soap operas, The Bold and the Beautiful has not totally dropped location shoots due to budgetary constraints.
This is the show’s forth trip to Italy – the last on in 2002. But in 2007, the show travelled Down Under to Australia. More recently there have been US based location shoots around the Liam, Steffy and Hope triangle in Aspen ( Liam and Steffy’s wedding as Hope watched from a gondola, and Fashion Week) and Cabo San Lucas (Hope and Thomas found themselves at the same resort where Liam and Steffy were enjoying their post-Christmas getaway).
Which Bold and the Beautiful characters are in the Italian scenes?
It has been reported that six actors made the trip to Italy:
- Katherine Kelly Lang – Brooke Logan Forrester
- Ronn Moss – Ridge Forrester
- Jacqueline MacInnes Woods – Steffy Forrester
- Don Diamont – Bill Spencer, Jr.
- Scott Clifton – Liam Spencer
- Kimberly Matula – Hope Logan
Photos posted by Katherine Kelly Lang via her twitter account support his list...
And why is the cast filming on location in Italy?
The Bold and the Beautiful’s largest fan base is not where you’d expect. That’s right; the number one market for Bold and the Beautiful viewers is not the United States. It’s Italy, where the show is known simple as Beautiful and broadcast on the Canale 5 network. That fact alone is enough to explain The Bold and the Beautiful’s fondness for filming on location in Italy.

But why are Liam, Hope, Ridge, Brooke, Steffy and Bill in Italy?
Liam and Hope’s wedding is being held in Italy so Hope can escape the press at home who continue to hound her. But in true love triangle form there are some Steffy shenanigans as well with actress Jacqueline MacInnes Wooddoing her own stunts when she takes a dive off a cliff and washes ashore on the beach…
With Steffy in Italy and an interview with Scott Clifton promising that once in Italy “calamity ensues” you have to wonder what Steffy and Bill will get up to this time to try and keep Liam and Hope apart.
