Real-life television personality Ramona Bruland is returning to THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL for 10 episodes beginning Monday, April 23. Viewers will remember her as the on-air talent for Spencer’s television media empire who helped Steffy manipulate her impromptu wedding to Liam last fall.
In real life, the Aspen-based Bruland freelances for a variety of TV outlets geared toward vacation and resort lifestyles. “I cover everything from food and wine to travel, adventure and fashion,” says the Australian native, whose stint on B&B has been her first real turn at acting. “I’m normally very comfortable in front of the camera, but this is a different beast,” she says. “In the beginning, I thought Hollywood soap people would be difficult, but everyone on this show is so genuinely nice and welcoming.”
Bruland can also currently be seen on the Discovery Channel’s BEST OF THE CARIBBEAN series, but she says it’s her recent appearances on B&B that have caused a stir among friends in her native Australia. “I’ve had people I knew in high school that I haven’t spoken to for ten years say, ‘Oh my God! I saw you on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL!'” she laughs. “So that was a real rush.”
Might we see more of Bruland in future episodes? She wouldn’t be opposed to the idea. “I’d absolutely love to be able to do more with the show in the future,” she says. “[B&B executive producer and headwriter] Brad Bell is good at leaving doors open. So you never quite know what could happen.”
