Fans of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL who have been clamoring for a reunion between Ivy Forrester and Liam may soon get their wish: Ashleigh Brewer is set to return to the soap, a spokesperson confirmed to Soaps In Depth.

The Australian actress — who was on hand for B&B’s anniversary party on March 22 — first joined the soap as Eric’s niece back in July 2014. (Ivy’s dad is Eric’s younger brother, John.) During Brewer’s four-year run on the show, her alter ego was romantically involved with not only Liam, but Wyatt and Thomas as well. Presumably, the character has been living back home in Australia, to where she returned after leaving behind the Forrester family drama in Los Angeles.

While the daytime drama was Brewer’s first American television role, she was already a seasoned veteran of the soap genre, having played Kate Ramsay on the long-running Australian soap NEIGHBOURS from 2009-2014. After exiting B&B in 2018, Brewer returned to her native country and commenced a six-month stint on another popular Aussie soap, HOME & AWAY, as Chelsea Campbell.

Aside from her HOME & AWAY arc, since parting ways with B&B, Brewer appeared as actress Camille Hagen in the 2018 film My Dinner With Hervé (about FANTASY ISLAND star Hervé Villechaize), the 2019 wedding drama Lovestruck, and the 2020 short film At the Edge of Night. Brewer also had an uncredited role as Totally Hair Barbie in last year’s Oscar-winning box office smash Barbie, which starred her close friend and former NEIGHBOURS co-star Margot Robbie.

There’s no word on when Brewer — who recently got engaged to filmmaker Mark Bauch — is scheduled to make her first appearance, or how Ivy’s return will play into the storyline. So stay tuned to see if a romantic reunion is in the cards for Ivy and one of her suitors!
