Crystal Chappell Joins THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL; Lesbian Storyline On The Way is reporting that Crystal Chappell (ex-Carly, DAYS; ex-Olivia, GL) will portray Danielle, the other mother of Caroline Spencer (Linsey Godfrey). Caroline was introduced last month as the never-before-seen daughter of Karen Spencer, played by Joanna Johnson (who also played the original Caorline).

Caroline already knows she has two mothers, but the other B&B characters are in the dark. She’ll reveal it to boyfriend Thomas Forrester and her uncle Bill (Don Diamont).

The episodes that will include the Chappell's debut will air in mid-May.

Chappell has won a Daytime Emmy for her brilliant acting work on GUIDING LIGHT (along with five other nominations) and another as executive producer of hit indie soap VENICE. She has also been nominated for Indie Soap Awards the past two years. She has another web series, THE GROVE, in the works and was also recently announced as part of the cast of a third web series, THE TEAM.

B&B's Susan Flannery has directed VENICE and VENICE co-star Hillary B. Smith also recently joined the show as Dr. Stacy.

Meanwhile, B&B will shoot eight to ten episodes from May 7th to 11th in the stunning southern Italian coastal region of Puglia, in and around the elegant Masseria San Domenico and exquisite Borgo Egnazia resorts.

The episodes will air in the U.S. in late spring and in Italy in the spring of 2013. At least five cast members, including Ronn Moss (Ridge Forrester) and Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke Logan), will travel to Puglia. Additional cast will be announced at a later date.
