Will The Bold And The Beautiful’s Heather Tom Leave Katie Behind For A New Career?


Through an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Heather Tom expressed her joy at learning the ropes behind the camera, particularly at “The Bold and the Beautiful.” She said, “It was something I had been wanting to do for a long time … I had this idea that I knew what the basics were — I had no idea! I can’t believe how many moving parts there are. It’s a miracle that the show gets put out every day and it’s a testament to all of the people who work in all of the different aspects of getting the show out.” 

This work was only intensified during the COVID-19 pandemic when “B&B” was forced to adapt to new on-set rules. At first, the actress was wary of how her co-stars would react to her directing episodes of the soap, but she was touched by their support and championed everyone’s desire to see their colleagues succeed.

However, in a statement that put longtime viewers at ease, she was also adamant about her love for her character Katie Logan and how much she enjoys working with her soap family. When asked if she would move to directing full-time, she said, “I don’t want to obligate myself to anything. I love Katie and I love acting. I’ve been doing it my whole life and yet directing is really exciting. I’ve always wanted to keep learning no matter what, and this is an exciting way to do that.” 

Fans can now breathe easier with the knowledge that Tom’s success in the director’s chair doesn’t necessarily mean she’s leaving “B&B” or Katie Logan behind any time soon.
