Paris’ mother has arrived on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL and if you’re a CBS or NBC soap fan from a while back you might recognize Grace Buckingham. Portrayer Cassandra Creech starred as Denise Maynard on AS THE WORLD TURNS from 1998-2001 and she also played Diane on DAYS OF OUR LIVES in 2018. The actress returned to daytime when she joined the cast of B&B as Grace, first appearing in the Jan. 10, 2022 episode.
Dr. Grace Buckingham arrived in Los Angeles as a special surprise for her daughter, Paris Buckingham. Zende Forrester set it up and both women were grateful to him for making the reunion happen. When Grace complimented her daughter on all of her accomplishments since arriving at Forrester, Paris returned the love by declaring she had a great role model. (Which means Grace likely doesn’t take after her ex, Reese Buckingham, who was a shadier doctor who stole Hope’s baby and sold it to Steffy!)
Paris was also delighted when Grace revealed that she had resigned from the hospital where she had been working and had some job prospects there in L.A. The young woman thought it would be awesome if her mom would move there to stay. Grace was very supportive of Paris’ relationship with Zende, but noticing her daughter’s reluctance, wondered if there was something she should know.
Paris assured her mom she was fine, but since she’s currently keeping Zende at arm’s length to keep him from proposing while also kissing Carter Walton, she could probably use some motherly advice right about now!
Stay tuned to B&B to see what kind of drama Grace gets mixed up in!
