Dr. John “Finn” Finnegan on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL is a new character, so while fans may want to know all about him, he’s going to be a bit of a mystery for a little while! Of course, viewers will probably recognize the actor, Tanner Novlan, from his very popular Liberty Mutual commercials where he plays a struggling actor who is really struggling with his dialogue for the ad! Also, Novlan is married to former B&B star Kayla Ewell (ex-Caitlin) in real life!
After colliding with Bill Spencer’s car while out on a motorcycle ride, Steffy Forrester landed herself in the hospital where the handsome young ER doctor John Finnigan ran some tests and informed a worried Bill that she was stable. As Steffy’s visitors came and went and brought some drama with them, Finn focused his attention on his patient. And after Steffy was discharged, he stopped by her home to reveal that he lived nearby and thought he’d drop off her paperwork in person.
Unfortunately, Steffy insisted she was still in pain and Finn was reluctant to give her any more drugs as she was clearly becoming dependent. Steffy confessed she was falling for the handsome doctor, but it wasn’t just a ploy to get a new prescription. They really had fallen for each other, and Finn helped get her into rehab so she could get clean.
Finn then began dating Steffy officially and worried about her continued closeness with Liam. He also treated Thomas Forrester when he required emergency brain surgery. Finn’s worries turned out to be warranted when Steffy confessed that she was pregnant but didn’t know who the father was because she’d slept with Liam! Finn blasted Liam and wondered if Steffy was truly committed to their relationship or just wanted her ex back. But when Steffy sincerely apologized and said she wanted the baby to be his, Finn agreed to stick around. Even after the paternity test results showed Liam was the babydaddy, Finn still seemed willing to stand by Steffy, but can that really last?
Stay tuned to see how his story continues!
