EXCLUSIVE! Bold And The Beautiful Trans Star Dishes On Soap's Historic Transgender Wedding!

Maya and Nick on The Bold and the Beautiful

Soap operas have been around for almost 70 years, but there's one storyline that's never been tackled before — until today!

Maya Avant and Rick Forrester will tie the knot on Wednesday's episode of the Bold and the Beautiful. What makes this wedding historic is that it's the first ever to include a transgender character.

On the show, Maya Avant is a trans woman. She's played by actress Karla Mosley. And while Karla is not trans in real-life, B&B does include a transgender actor — Scott Turner Schofield. Scott's character Nick will be officiating Maya and Rick's wedding.

Scott gave us some EXCLUSIVE insights into the storyline as well as his experience being a transgender actor on daytime television.

Soap opera viewers and advertisers have been traditionally more conservative, but Scott says they've really embraced him and the Maya and Rick relationship:

"Everybody knows a gay or lesbian or bisexual person. Even if it's only Ellen DeGeneres. Now people know a transgender person — Caitlyn Jenner, Laverne Cox, Maya, even maybe me. But in reality, everybody knows a person in their own small town now who is LGBT. People want to see their brother's, classmate's, colleague's lives told well. They demand it with us and for us with their voices and their remote controls and their dollars."

Scott attributes the storyline's success to the writing. Head writer Bradley Bell runs the scripts by GLAAD and even gives Scott veto power. Scott says it's a dramatic change from how LGBT characters were portrayed even just a few years ago.

All My Children & One Life To Live Cut Short! Is Cancellation Inevitable?!

Filed under: TV News

one life to live all my children cut short cancelled

The era of the Soap Opera may soon be over!

Iconic tv shows One Life to Live and All My Children moved from network television to online-only viewing earlier this year in an attempt to combat cancellation…

But it seems the plan is not working out too well, as both shows' parent company Prospect Park is cutting down new episodes aired posted per week from 4 to 2!

Could this mean the death of both beloved Soap Operas is right around the corner? Well, perhaps not!

The reasoning behind the episode elimination is actually quite clever, as Prospect Park heads Rich Frank and Jeff Kwatinetz revealed in a statement:

Go with what you know, we always say!

The nice thing about soap operas is that nothing is impossible. Really! What other genre of television can get away with so much sex, crime, serial killings, incest, time-travel, traveling through paintings, cloning, etc.?! Seriously — anything goes!

Which is why
