Karla Mosley Announces She’s Taking a Break From THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL… to Have Her Baby!
The cast and crew of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL have left on their summer vacation, but while most of them will be returning to work in a month, Karla Mosley (Maya) will be taking a little bit more time off from work because she’s getting ready for her maternity leave! Back in April, the pregnant actress revealed that she and boyfriend John Rogers are expecting a baby this summer. “Last day before baby break!” she posted on Instagram.
In the video, Mosley brings fans up to date before giving them an inside peek at some of the cast photos on the walls of the studio. “Well, it’s super-quiet here at the B&B offices,” she smiled before laughing and adding, “And I am about the last person here! I think it’s probably because I’m so sad to leave. But I’ll be back! Everyone’s going on hiatus and then I’ll have a SUPER-long hiatus.” She then pans the camera around the room to show the images the soap uses in its opening credits. At the end, she turns the camera back on herself and says: “Thanks for an amazing year, and I’ll see you soon, B&B” before blowing a kiss.
Despite the fact that she and Rick are happily married, Maya has been seen more in recent episodes without her husband. That’s due to the fact that Rick Forrester’s portrayer, Jacob Young, has dropped to recurring status with the soap to pursue other opportunities on the side. But with Mosley about to take her maternity leave to welcome her new baby, what will happen to Maya while she’s gone?
Stay tuned to find out if the show writes Mosley’s break into Maya’s storyline or if the character will just drop to the back burner for a month or so. And for more B&B news, keep reading the CBS edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!
