Calling all Young and the Restless and One Life to Live fans!
Heather Tom returns to daytime this week.
Unfortunately, for those who loved her as Victoria Newman on Y&R or as Kelly Cramer on OLTL, she is not returning to either of those soaps.
Heather joins the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful as a recast in the role of Katie Logan, last seen onscreen in 2004 played by Nancy Sloan. She will make her B&B debut Thursday as the youngest Logan sister.
Heather won critical acclaim in the role of Victoria Newman, receiving eight Daytime Emmy nominations in the Outstanding Younger Actress category and taking home that award twice.
She entered the Llanview scene in Dec. 2003 as Kelly Cramer – the third Kelly recast – and she quickly earned the loyalty of OLTL fans. She’s had some powerful storylines.
How about when Kelly and Kevin’s baby died at birth and her newly-discovered brother, Paul Cramer (who also happens to be Heather’s real-life brother David) stole Babe Chandler’s baby from All My Children and Kelly passed “Little Ace” off as her own . That s/l had some great AMC crossover scenes.
And who can forget that heart-wrenching scene last year between Kelly and Kevin (played by the wonderfully talented Dan Gauthier), when he forcibly yanked his engagement ring from Kelly’s finger, leaving her emotionally shattered and sobbing on the floor.
That scene earned Dan and Heather Daytime Emmy nominations in the Outstanding Supporting Actor/Actress Category. It was one of her two nominations in that category during her three years on OLTL.
If you’re a Heather Tom fan, tune in Thursday to B&B 1:30 p.m. on CBS.
So how about it? What’s your favorite Heather Tom moment?
