After it was reported that Kiara Barnes was leaving THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL it was only a matter of time before her final episode would air. And now Soap Opera Digest has confirmed that her last day on the soap will be Tuesday, July 6.
Barnes first joined the cast of B&B back in July 2018, and her three-year run is now coming to an end as the actress has been cast on FOX’s upcoming primetime reboot of the TV classic FANTASY ISLAND. The show actually reunites her with another B&B alum as you can see in the trailer below — Adain Bradley, who used to play Xander opposite her on the CBS sudser!
Although Zoe came to Los Angeles still obsessed with Xander, she eventually found herself falling head over heels for Carter Walton. Well, until Zende Forrester caught her eye and her flirting with him nearly ruined everything! Of course, in the end, it was Carter who really blew things apart when he took comfort in Quinn’s arms, and it’s likely the reveal of that dirty secret that will inspire Zoe to leave Los Angeles and all the Forrester drama behind!
FANTASY ISLAND premieres Tuesday, Aug. 10, on FOX, so be sure to tune in to watch Barnes as Ruby Okoro, a woman transformed by the powers on the island and now lives there working for Elena Roarke, a descendant of the original series’ Mr. Roarke, played by the iconic Ricardo Montalban.
