The Logan family is getting bigger now that Jennifer Gareis is back on contract at THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL! A rep for the soap tells Soaps In Depth that the actress will make her first contract air date sometime in mid-October.
Gareis took over the role of Donna Logan in 2006 after it was played by Carrie Mitchum on both a contract and recurring basis from 1987-2001. Gareis was originally on contract with B&B from 2006 until 2015, at which time she dropped to recurring status and made sporadic appearances at family functions like Christmas parties or weddings.
Before joining the cast of B&B, Gareis was best known for playing Grace Turner on its sister soap, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS from 1997-2004 (with a brief cameo appearance in a 2014 episode). Viewers could also see her appearing in primetime series like DIAGNOSIS MURDER ,VERONICA MARS, and COMEDY BANG! BANG! as well as films like The Harvesting, What Boys Like and Boat Trip.
Gareis most recently reprised her role on B&B in late August for Hope’s wedding to Liam, and will also be in attendance when her sister, Katie, walks down the aisle with Thorne. But now that she’s back full-time, she’ll be doing much more than just sitting around looking gorgeous. Will she set her eyes on Eric again and give Quinn a run for her money? Or maybe rekindle things with Justin? Or perhaps she might catch Bill’s eye again?
