What Happened to Zende on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL


The Forresters may have welcomed Zende into their family on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL, but the young man doesn’t always feel like one of them. And that’s not just because he’s adopted. Who is Zende Forrester Dominguez, really? Let us fill in the blanks!

Zende first appeared on B&B in 2001 and was played by child actor Daniel Smith for about a year. Smith reprised the role for an appearance in 2005, but when the character was brought back in 2015, he was an adult and played by daytime newcomer Rome Flynn. Zende left Los Angeles again in 2017, but returned to the soap in October 2020 when they recast the role with Delon de Metz!
