Poppy is a newcomer to THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL so not much is known about the character yet… aside from what her sister has claimed! The character had been mentioned and heard on the phone, but made her first appearance in the Nov. 10, 2023, episode. The role is being played by actress Romy Park, who viewers might recognize from her appearances in primetime series like GHOST WHISPERER, ELEVENTH HOUR, and THE ROOKIE: FEDS.
Poppy is a free spirit who prefers that name over the one she was given at birth, Penelope. Her daughter, Luna, began working as an intern at Forrester Creations, and she warned her to be careful. Poppy’s sister, Li Finnegan, was furious to see Luna working for the Forresters and tried to force her to quit her job. Luna argued that her mom missed her, but Li wanted nothing to do with her sister because years ago, she had gotten Poppy a job at the hospital where she was working only for her sibling to have an affair with one of the doctors and brought shame to her and the rest of the family.
Finally arriving at Forrester, Poppy explained to Luna that Li had been sending texts asking her to get her to quit, sure she’ll ruin things for her son, Finn Finnegan. Luna assured her mother that everything would be fine, and Poppy promised she’d see her again soon. But as she went to leave the office, she ran into Li and the sisters immediately clashed!
It was then that Li revealed the real reason why she was so resentful of her sister — Poppy was able to carry a child while she couldn’t. Poppy reminded Li that she still had Finn, but Li wouldn’t listen and pushed her away.
Stay tuned to see how Poppy’s storyline continues to unfold!
