Please join us in sending best wishes for a speedy recovery to THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL star Jacob Young (Rick), who injured himself shortly after returning home from filming a movie! “Seriously, a huge thank you to everyone,” he expressed at the outpouring of support already. “Your kindness, good wishes, and love are getting me through. It’s been two days, I’m in a walking cast, and already on the mend. Life happens, life gets in the way, but hey, that’s life. ‘Ain’t nothing gonna break my stride, I’m running and I won’t touch ground. Oh no, I’ve got to keep on moving.’”
On July 10, Young shared a selfie with a pic of his terribly swollen ankle. “Dang!” he shared on Instagram. “Just arrived at home and started doing some work outside, rolled my ankle and pretty sure it’s broken.” But he also assured fans that he’s being well taken care of by his better half. “Christen Young has got it under control!” he promised. He also joked: “I’m sure I’ll milk it for all it’s worth.”
Hopefully he had returned home because he had finished filming his upcoming movie, They Call Him Angel, where he’s playing the mysterious Mr. Jones. Young has been a part of the daytime community since 1997 when he first joined the cast of B&B. He has also played Lucky on GENERAL HOSPITAL and JR on ALL MY CHILDREN. He dropped to recurring status with B&B back in April in order to pursue outside projects like this film and his new music. With all of his other opportunities, hopefully this injury won’t keep him out of commission for too long! “All I wanted to do was be at home and sit back and put my feet up,” Young admitted. “Not like this!”
