Funny thing: I won a beauty pageant on a whim. Then one thing happened after another and it just fell into place.

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!

Do you remember your first day on set? Any memories or fun stories?
