This is no fairy tale. Real life princess, Her Royal Highness Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark, joins the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful this month, just under a year after she beat a DUI charge in northern California.
On the Bold and the Beautiful, she plays the newly created role of Alison. Just who Alison will impact remains to be seen. Could she be a new love interest for Nick? Or, maybe a new designer that will put the houses of Forrester, and Jackie M on notice? What Soapdom believes the role to entail has to do with Bill Spencer and his new administrative assistant. Could the new secretary be Alison?
Considered one of the most eligible royals in the world, HRH Princess Theodora has quite a pedigre. She is the daughter of King Constantine II of Greece and his wife Queen Anne-Marie of Denmark. She attended Woldingham School in Surrey, England. From there she moved to the United States where she received her Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts, after having attended Northeastern University in Boston for two years. While in Boston she completed the four-year course at Brown University and followed with graduate studies at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. She was awarded the Fine Arts Award for Acting from Brown.
But the Princess is not without a blotch on her otherwise pristine royal resume. According to the “Royal Musings” Blog, she was busted in September 2010 for driving while under the influence. She was found to have a blood alcohol level of .07, which, although is just under the legal limit in California, officers may still, at their discretion, charge the driver with “impairment.”
The incident occurred in Montery, California on September 17, 2010. When, she arrived for her arraignment on September 21st, with just a checkbook in hand, she was notified that she needed a lawyer, as the case was going to trial as a DUI case (Drinking under the influence.) Accompanied by her lawyer, Marlene Clara Zamora, she appeared in the Monterey County Court for a plea hearing on October 21st, a pre-trial conference on December 8th, and two additional plea hearings on January 11, 2011 and the last on January 27, 2011. She pleaded no contest "to driving a motor vehicle in excess of 100 mph and following too closely." The original DUI charged was dropped. The charge is considered a misdemeanor, but was accompanied by a $1000 fine.
At present, HRH Princess Theodora is based in Los Angeles pursuing her acting career. Along with her new role on the Bold and the Beautiful, she will be shooting a period western entitled, "Big Valley" (based on the TV series of the same name), in Louisiana later this year.
Watch for Princess Theodora to begin airing as Alison on The Bold and the Beautiful on Monday, December 5, 2011. The role is recurring.
