Bold and the Beautiful wraps filming on location – in Italy!

Updated on May 13, 2012

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.

      @fancynane, @Hopelover, I think more and more viewers are begining to agree. Steffy is not Hope's problem, nor Hope, Steffy's. Steffy and Hope share a common problem - Liam and his indecision.

      I don't remember Ridge appearing as fickle in his constant bouncing between Brooke and Taylor, but then again storylines move a little faster now - maybe that is part of the problem....

      @Areeka, I agree that I don't think the Bill and Steffy story is over yet!

      Hope and Liam are true for each other. Steffy only wants Liam to take someone from the Logans cause they took her father. Bill wants Steffy in his family as part of his strategic plan to take over Forresters. Bill would marry Steffy himself if sick Kate wasn't in the way.

      You have to congratulate the Bold and the Beautiful writers for reproducing the magic of Ridge, Brooke and Taylor with their daughters Hope and Steffy figthing over Liam. Re-using past storylines usually isn't popular with soap viewers, but B&B has hit the right mix of nostalgia and new story telling to make it work!

      I cant stand Steffy, that was Hope's man first. Steffy use sex for everything and so what Hope is a Logan, Steffy is a product of two garbage cans, her mom slept with Ridge two brothers(Thorne and Nick)and let's not talk about Brook son and Taylor had the nerve to get mad about her son seeing Brook, plus Taylor and Steffy slept with Rick, so let's go Forrester's

      I totally agree. He needs to stay with Steffy. I hate the logan family. Brooke believed that every man she and her family set her eyes on they should get. No matter the cost.Just because her daughter wants Liam, thats the way it should be..Like its set in stone or some ish! Why dont she just go back to stupid old Oliver..oH wait Brookes slept with him too. She sleeps with everyone!

      Agreed @Betty. Of course part of the excitement comes from Bill Spencer's schemes to keep Hope and Liam apart and reunite Liam with Steffy!

      Well I for one, really hope to see Liam dump goody goody Hope at the altar and stay with Steffy. The show is so much more exciting to watch when they are together than the boring Hope. I don't think I will watch it if he stays with Hope.
