The Bold and the Beautiful’s raunchy return plan
Hit soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful has found filming difficult due to social distancing laws but executive producer and head write Bradley Bell told Forbes recently that he now has a plan to resume shooting and it won’t require cutting steamy sex scenes.
“Safety is our utmost concern and will be as we return to production,” he said.
“We’ll really rely on our directors to employ all techniques. (Actors will) shoot eight feet (2.5m) apart, following all the safety standards, but use the tricks of the business.”
Some of those tricks will allow the actors’ real-life spouses to serve as stand-ins when physical intimacy is required, but there is also a more interesting solution being investigated.
““We have some lifelike blow-up dolls that have been sitting around here for the past 15 years, that we’ve used for various other stories – (like) when people were presumed dead,” Mr Bell said.
“We’re dusting off the dolls and putting new wigs and make-up on them and they’ll be featured in love scenes.”
Do you watch The Bold and the Beautiful? Do you think the blow-up dolls could outshine the actors?
