Hope Logan is all grown up.
The Bold and the Beautiful has aged and recast this character, as producer Bradley Bell announced today that Kimberly Matula had landed the key role. She's a teenager now.
“Kimberly is a vibrant and talented young actress,” said Bell. “I look forward to seeing her bring Hope to life.”
As for the re-aging, he added: “Aging the character of ‘Hope’ to a teenager allows us to bring the next generation of ‘Logans’ to the forefront, as well as play a broader range of the Forrester vs. Logan story."
Matula appeared (in a tiny role) on an episode of How I Met Your Mother this year.
