THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL Casts Anthony Turpel as a Teenaged R.J.!


Kids grow up so fast these days, especially on soaps! THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL has just announced that they are aging Brooke and Ridge’s son, R.J., to be a teenager now played by Anthony Turpel. He will first air on Wednesday, Sept. 14.

R.J. was most recently played by Mace Coronel beginning in 2013 when the character returned from boarding school, but wasn’t seen much aside from family gatherings. Perhaps now that he’s older, the character will have more to do?
