During the rooftop confrontation with Sheila, many fans wondered if Taylor was going to die on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL! And in fact, following the cliffhanger that left Taylor literally hanging on for her life at the end of the April 12 episode, some even wondered if this was why portrayer Krista Allen hadn’t been added to the soap’s opening credits.
Allen, who joined the soap in December 2021, took to social media to explain to fans that the situation is a little more complicated than that. “This seems to be asked a lot so I’m gonna make a proper tweet!” she declared. “We had a tech issue on our last shoot and the whole thing was unusable. We have to reshoot. But we have to find the time!”
In fact, that recent attempt that ran into technical difficulties was actually the second time that B&B has tried to shoot Allen for the opening credits. The first came out okay but as you might recall, Taylor was wearing bad wigs for the first month she was on the soap, so that’s not really a look they want showing up in the credits over and over again now. “First shot was a sheepdog wig,” the actress joked, “second was a bust… third time’s a charm!”
Thankfully, Allen’s real hair was finally the correct length and color by the time the CBS sudser resumed production after the holidays so, in February, Taylor was at last able to ditch the wigs. Unfortunately, it appears that the attempt to do a new shoot for the opening credits with her lovely natural locks didn’t quite work out as planned.
Hopefully, Allen is right and the third time is the charm so fans can finally enjoy seeing her in the opening credits with all the other B&B stars!
