Ashley Jones Opens up About Returning to B&B Full Time


It’s been a while since Bridget has been on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL for more than a brief appearance, but portrayer Ashley Jones has been keeping busy appearing in episodes of THE ROOKIE, ALL RISE, THE RESIDENT, and FOR ALL MANKIND, TV movies like Saving My Daughter, and even directing the recently-released movie Sugar Mommy. Oh, plus, she’s also raising her six-year-old son, Hayden!

Still, while she’s been enjoying being able to bounce around between all these different projects, Jones admitted that she’d be open to a more full-time return to B&B. “Right now, I feel like the flow has been really nice,” she told “Things have come in and it seems like God’s given me these opportunities that present themselves at the right time and I’ve been able to do them.

“I wasn’t directing anything earlier this year and I was on quite a few episodes and that was wonderful,” the actress continued. “And then I get to pop in and out of some other shows and do some other guest stars. It’s really fulfilling as an actor. If something came up, I would have to really consider it. I would one hundred percent probably want to do it.”

Because even as her career continues to expand, Jones will always consider B&B home and will welcome the chance to step back into Bridget’s shoes. “If the opportunity presents itself and I’m available and in town, I always want to play that character,” she declared. “I feel like I kind of grew up with her. And that studio and that family, the Bell family, they’re such a part of my heart and career that I would always, always want to go back if they had a story to tell for Bridget.”

Certainly, with Brooke’s marriage to Ridge on the rocks again, Bridget could offer her mother some support during this trying time. Plus, with Deacon floating around, there’s plenty of unfinished business with him, too. “I still think there’s a lot of story left to tell,” Jones mused. “And hopefully, they do too.”
