Kyle Lowder Shares Feelings on The Bold and the Beautiful Character, Story Line

at . Comments

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.

Cute Kyle

The Bold and the Beautiful Quotes

Stephanie: You think this is all my fault? You have brought this on yourself.
Brooke: All I ever did, Stephanie, was to love Ridge.
Stephanie: And his father, and his brother, and your son-in-law. Is it any wonder Bridget is confused? I mean, is it any wonder your daughter would confuse natural feelings of respect and affection for romance? You have blurred the lines of socially-acceptable behaviour. And you stand here and you tell me you're proud. What are you proud of? Having your son-in-law's baby? I know what you're proud of. Chasing after a man whose wife's body is barely cold in the ground.

Brooke Logan Forrester is nobody's fool, nobody's.
