Rome Flynn Leaving 'The Bold and the Beautiful' as Zende

Rome Flynn has chosen to leave his role as Zende Forrester Dominguez on CBS soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful.

Flynn discussed his exit from B&B on Instagram in a heartfelt letter to soap fans.

"First I want to thank [Executive Producer/Head Writer] Brad Bell for taking a chance on this ambitious young kid and giving me more responsibility than I knew I could take on," Flynn wrote. "I want to thank all of the B&B fans across the world for embracing me as your Zende Forrester. It has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life to share a piece of my self everyday with you. I worked hard to make sure I never cheated you on work ethic or integrity of this character. Such a profound responsibility to be one of the few African Americans on daytime television, one I took serious in making sure I made you feel like you knew me. My job is to imitate life in its honesty and truest form. I hope I’ve done you justice."

Flynn thanked co-star Reign Edwards (Nicole), adding, "You’re such a joy to have worked with and an amazing talent! … I wanna thank you for letting me in. We laughed together, we cried together, we went to war together & that’s what love is. Thank you Reigny #zencole."

He concluded by talking about change.

"This is not goodbye but I’ll see you soon! Change is good. You must make change to make way for what God has for you. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Love, Rome Flynn aka Zendaddy"

The show released an official statement confirming Flynn’s decision not to renew his contract, noting, "He has been a valued member of the B&B family and we wish him much success in all of his future endeavors."
