The character of Rick is heavily involved on The Bold and the Beautiful these days.
As such, actor Kyle Lowder recently sat down to discuss life on the drama with Soap Opera Weekly. Here's an excerpt:
Weekly: Rick really thinks he has everyone where he wants them and is sitting pretty.
Kyle Lowder: Oh, yeah, he thinks he is. I know a lot of people are looking at this story and saying, "I can't stand Rick; he's so whiny, he's so bratty." It's too easy for people to see him being whiny and bratty and trying to manipulate to get what he wants. I want people to be reminded that, in Rick's head, this is [from] a lifetime of pain and suffering. I'm not saying it's justified; I'm saying that it goes deeper.
I want people to try and look deeper as to why Rick is doing this. It's not just a little brat trying to get what he wants. This is an adult who is really trying to ostracize Ridge from the family, from the company, from everything. He's not just trying to break up his mommy and a guy he hates. I am not defending him, but everything he is doing right now is to try and get Ridge ostracized.
