The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) first aired in 1987 which is fairly ‘new’ in the soap opera genre, especially in comparison to some of its daytime drama competition. As the sister show to The Young and the Restless (Y&R), it was rolled out by William J. Bell and Lee Philip Bell and revolves around the Forrester family, their company Forrester Creations and the fashion industry in general. Many leading ladies have graced the soap, which takes place in Los Angeles, California, over the show’s almost thirty-year tenure. Below is a list of the absolutely iconic B&B actresses over the years.

9. Jennifer Finnigan
Before she jumped into primetime with roles in Crossing Jordan, Committed and Tyrant, Jennifer Finnigan was Bridgette Forrester on B&B. She entered the role in the summer of 2000, wowing fans and soap critics alike. She became the first actress to win three consecutive Daytime Emmys in the category of Outstanding Younger Actress from 2002 to 2004. It’s no surprise, Hollywood came calling and Finnigan left the B&B at the beginning of 2004 to pursue other opportunities.
