Insiders have said Moss elected not to renew his contract over salary issues.
Production company Bell Phillip Television confirmed the exit. “Ronn has spent an amazing 25 years with B&B,” a rep for Bell Phillip said in a statement. “We will always consider him family, and we wish him only the best in all of his future endeavors.”
Three other original actors are still on the show--Susan Flannery as Stephanie Forrester, John McCook as Eric Forrester, and Katherine Kelly Lang as Brooke Logan Forrester.
Ridge and Brooke were recently named to our 50 Greatest Soap Couples of All-Time list.
Moss will shoot his final scenes for THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL this Tuesday, August 14, and his last episode will air sometime in September.
It is hard to imagine Moss will be gone from B&B for long. What do you want to happen with the character of Ridge now?
