Actress Diamond White has been cast on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL in the brand new contract role of Paris Buckingham! If the last name sounds familiar, it’s because she’ll be playing the sister of Zoe Buckingham, currently played by Kiara Barnes. They are both the daughters of Dr. Reese Buckingham, who was sent to prison for stealing Hope’s baby. According to Deadline, White will tape her first episode on Friday, Sept. 18, and will first air on Monday, Nov. 2.
White may be best known for playing Lala in FOX’s primetime sudser EMPIRE, she has also had roles in CLOSE ENOUGH and DEAR WHITE PEOPLE. B&B viewers with kids might also find her voice sounds familiar as she has voiced numerous animated characters on shows like THE LION GUARD, SOFIA THE FIRST, TRANSFORMERS: RESCUE BOTS, and PHINEAS AND FERB.
With Reese still safely locked away, it’s more likely that Paris will be coming to town to check on her sister. And since she won’t be doing so until November, there’s plenty of time for Zoe to get settled into her new romance with Carter to make it even more dramatic if Paris shows up as a potential spoiler! Stay tuned to see what happens!
