After being cast to play the namesake of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s beloved Caroline Spencer, daytime newcomer Linsey Godfrey didn’t have far to look for guidance in her portrayal! First airing Wednesday, March 28, Godfrey plays the daughter of Karen Spencer, whose portrayer, Joanna Johnson, played the original Caroline. Johnson briefly returns to the canvas to help introduce her on-screen offspring, which gave Godfrey the opportunity to pepper her with questions. “I’ve picked Joanna’s brain about what it was like when she played the original Caroline,” says the actress, who’s even impressed a few of her veteran co-stars with her in-depth knowledge of the show’s history. “I’ll be like, ‘Remember this and this?’ They’ll say, ‘Oh my gosh. How do you know that?’ There’s a Wikipedia page of the Forrester family tree, so I’ve been studying that thing. It gets confusing, but I’m slowly trying to figure everything out.”
Look for a feature interview with Godfrey in the CBS issue of Soaps In Depth on sale Monday, April 9!
