Why did you decide to become an actor?

Who's your biggest inspiration?

Susan Flannery. She was always so amazing, and my mentor when I started the show. She just had this unique outlook on every scene and she set me straight.

What's your favorite The Bold and the Beautiful storyline?

I think the best storyline would be with frenemy Pamela Douglas (played by Alley Mills). She's a friend, but all the tricks she would pull on me!
