Be prepared for some beautiful mountain vistas as the backdrop to emotional drama on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL in the coming weeks, because three of the soap’s stars are filming scenes in beautiful Aspen, Colorado this week!
The remote shoot featuring Ridge, Taylor, and Brooke was teased by headwriter and executive producer Bradley Bell in Soap Opera Digest’s exciting B&B fall preview. “Taylor takes Finn and Steffy’s miracle as a sign that anything is possible,” Bell said. “Brooke, of course, remains insistent that she and Ridge are each other’s destiny, and that Taylor is conspiring to destroy her family. Ridge has complex feelings about the two loves of his life and doesn’t want to hurt either. This fall, the unexpected happens, which leads our trio to another beautiful remote location, where circumstance causes Ridge to make a choice. The fallout from this changes lives and the dynamics of families forever.”
While Bell didn’t divulge the location of the remote shoot in the fall preview, B&B star Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) spilled the beans in an Instagram story she posted on September 11. Sharing a selfie of her and “the boss” on an airplane, Lang revealed in the text accompanying her photo that they had “arrived in Aspen… two days of shooting B&B in the mountains.”
Krista Allen (Taylor) also shared an Insta Story from the airplane, sharing a short video clip of the plane’s landing on the Aspen runway. “We have arrived!” she wrote in the text accompanying her Insta Story.
Lang’s next slide featured a boomerang of her, Bell, and Allen attempting to quickly run over a grate — which you can see in a tweet shared by Allen. “Trying not to get wet running across the water that shoots up,” Lang wrote. But apparently, Bell did not move fast enough because he was the only one of the trio who had a wet shirt by the time they crossed over the grate! “He who hesitates gets splashed,” Lang joked in the text of her third slide, which Allen also shared on Twitter.
The scenes filmed in Aspen this week won’t be the first time that the soap has gone on location in the Colorado resort town. Brooke and Bill enjoyed a hot air balloon ride over the mountain city in 2012 after Katie, who was suffering from post-partum depression, pushed her sister and husband together. Liam and Steffy married on an Aspen hilltop (for the first time!) in 2011 while Hope, who was trapped in a gondola, was forced to watch her love marry another woman. And in 2013, Bill nearly fell off a cliff while rock climbing with Brooke in Aspen, and had a change of heart about which woman he was destined to be with.
Based on the photos, it wasn’t clear if Ridge’s portrayer, Thorsten Kaye, had also traveled to Aspen over the weekend. But considering that Lang shared they were only there for a handful of days, he’s bound to join his leading ladies very soon. There’s no official word yet on when the scenes will air, so check back with SoapsInDepth.com for updates!
