“The Bold and the Beautiful” took on a surprising turn after Nicole’s surprising revelation that her sister Maya was once a Myron. Now, the Emmy Award-winning CBS Daytime series has cast a transgender actor to play the role of Maya’s best friend. Will things become better for Maya now that her BFF is in town or will things get worse? This article contains spoilers for “The Bold and the Beautiful.” Read on to learn more about this scoop.
NY Daily News reported that “The Bold and the Beautiful” has recently cast transgender actor Scott Turner Schofield to play the role of Nick. He is Maya Avant’s (Karla Mosley) best friend and “transgender mentor.” According to Schofield, Nick and Maya met in the trans community and have been best friends before she became the Forrester Creations’ model.
“I’m her friend that comes in and kind of help remind her that she is beautiful and whole and authentic exactly as she is,” described Schofield about his role.
Schofield also admitted that he and his role in “Bold and Beautiful” are pretty much alike in a way that he uplifts his friends when they feel down. He also revealed that he was surprised when he received an invitation to audition for the role. Now that he has snagged a role in the CBS series, he admitted that he feels nervous and joyful.
“It’s going in the direction that transgender people can be happy about,” he said.
Schofield’s last statement made B&B fans wonder if Rick will completely accept Maya’s past. It was despite speculations that Rick will go completely berserk once he finds out that Maya hid her past from him.
“Bold and Beautiful” spoilers from She Knows Soaps reveal that Rick will be looking for an engagement ring. It was after expressing to Eric and Brooke his plan to marry Maya soon. Maya has been consistently assuring Carter that she will reveal the truth to Rick after he proposes, which leads many fans to believe that Rick will not accept Maya’s past.
