Luna on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL is relatively new to the canvas, so fans are naturally curious about the young woman. The character first appeared in the Sept. 13, 2023 episode of the soap played by daytime newcomer Lisa Yamada. Viewers might recognize the actress from her recent role in Freeform’s mystery series CRUEL SUMMER or appearances in shows like PARTY OF FIVE, ALL AMERICAN, LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE, and PROMISED LAND.

A new intern at Forrester Creations, Luna was introduced as she entered the family mansion with an armload of supplies for Eric Forrester and RJ Forrester to help create the new couture line they were working on. When Eric asked Donna Logan why she hired Luna over all the other applicants, she had to admit she never looked at her resume, but when Luna pitched in on reception they had a nice talk and she made the decision.

However, while Donna and RJ both felt they could trust Luna (RJ was immediately smitten with the beauty!), the young woman then took a phone call from a mysterious woman who was upset to learn she was in Los Angeles and warned her to stay away from the Forresters!

After Luna assured RJ she would keep Eric’s condition a secret, he insisted she tell him a secret of her own. She told him she was raised by her mother, who was a bit of a free spirit, though her grandfather and aunt were more driven. And then, during another call with her mother begging her to get out of L.A. and away from the Forresters, it was revealed that her aunt is Li Finnegan! And when Li found out that her niece was working at Forrester, she demanded that she quit her new job and get far away from that family!

With RJ backing her up, Luna informed her aunt she wasn’t going to give up her internship. And she was happy to help out when Forrester staged a fashion showdown between Ridge and Eric. Then Luna’s mother, Poppy Nozawa, showed up and while Luna was happy to see her, Li was… much less delighted! Luna was nervous when RJ invited her to dinner with Steffy Forrester and Finn Finnegan, but it went well and later she and RJ declared their love for each other.

Luna accepted an anonymous invitation to dinner thinking it was from RJ but when it turned out to be from Zende Forrester, she shut him down. When she told RJ what had happened, he warned Zende to back off. As they were having trouble finding time to be alone together, Luna was happy when RJ rented the beach house from Bill Spencer. Learning of Bill’s past connection to Poppy, RJ wondered if he could be Luna’s father, but when she asked her mother, Poppy insisted he wasn’t. Luna remained curious about her father’s identity and Poppy begged her to leave it alone.

RJ and Luna consummated their relationship and were deliriously happy… until the night of Eric and Donna’s impromptu wedding. Luna had only had a little champagne, but also popped a few of her mother’s mints, which left her disoriented and when she woke up the next morning she was horrified to find herself in bed with Zende! She explained she thought she’d slept with RJ, and Zende felt terrible. Luna accused her mother of drugging her and causing the hallucination and Poppy felt guilty that Luna had gotten hold of her “special” mints.

A guilt-ridden Luna wanted to come clean with RJ about what had happened, but Poppy and Zende begged her not to.
