Emily Harrison takes on the fashion world as Bridget Forrester

Emily Harrison Lands Plum Role

When Jennifer Finnegan, the two time Daytime Emmy winner for her role as Bridget Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful, announced her departure from the show during a recent appearance on SoapTalk, B&B began to scramble for a replacement.  On Thursday, December 11, 2003, B&B announced that Emily Harrison has been cast in the role of Bridget Forrester.

Fresh faced and adorable Harrison hails from Louisiana, Missouri, the epitome of small town. She displayed a talent and love for performing very early on. When she first took to the stage at age four as a ballerina, she couldn’t forget the thrill.  

Harrison attended the University of Missouri, but decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of acting.  Since arriving, she has appeared in feature films Dickie Roberts Former Child Star, Food for Thought, and Puppet Master III among others. Her televison credits include 7th Heaven, American Dreams and The O’Keefes.

Recently, Harrison completed work on the award winning short film, Ocha Cups for Christmas. To prepare for the role, Harrison spent months learning the Japanese language and aspects of the culture, as well as gaining 15 pounds in order to portray the struggles of a young girl uncomfortable in her body. Sounds like Harrison is truly dedicated to her craft.

Anxious to see the new Bridget?  You’ll have to wait till next year.  Harrison’s first airdate is January 26, 2003.

Past Blast

Days of our Lives' Blake Berris enjoys being "twisted!"

As the "twisted" character of Nick Fallon on Days of our Lives, one never knows what to expect, or what is lurking in that "deep thoughts" look. But for Emmy nominated Blake Berris, playing the role is fun, and he loves the challenge of not knowing what is up next.

"I have to tell you...I love this character. The writers' have done a great job resurrecting him," Berris said. The character gets more interesting and more bizarre each episode, and I love it that way."

Berris admitted that when he picks up the script, he is always excited in seeing just what old Nick is up to. He is a member of the Horton clan, son to Jessica and Joshua Fallon. He surfaced a few years ago all grown up and as a shady dark guy terrorizing poor Melanie (Molly Burnett). He was carted off to prison and is now back.
