It’s been over 30 years since Katherine Lang Kelly has been on The Bold and the Beautiful. The actress is one of the popular American soapie’s original cast members – she has been there since 1987. Can you believe it?
Katherine, who plays Brooke Logan on the show, landed in Mzansi on Monday evening and received a warm reception. Fans love her!
So, has playing the controversial character affected her life in any way? Speaking on Umhlobo Wenene FM’s BEE breakfast show on Tuesday morning, the actress said yes.
Thank you @sabc3 for the warm welcome arriving at the airport!! What a wonderful moment! Great to see u again @mszanndee ❤️👏👍 Happy to be here in South Africa!

“Especially when Brooke is doing her bad things. Yes, when she was going through her bad period in her life, people would come up to me…” One of the show hosts added that it’s because she’s good at what she does, and she replied: “Because I’m not like that, I’m a sweet, sweet [person],” she jokingly said on the Isixhosa radio show.
Why is she so popular with fans? Well, because her character has done some unthinkable things. Katherine revealed that Brooke has married to Ridge Forrester almost ten times. Don’t even get us started on the many other people she has been married to, including Ridge’s brother and his father.
What an entertaining character she is! She also mentioned that she cannot imagine herself not being on the show. So, that means she’ll be on the world’s most-watched soapie (36 million viewers) for many more years.
SABC 3 has reported that the actress will be spending some of her time with fans, visiting historic sites and as part of her personal give-back cause, Breakaway from Cancer - she will be competing in the gruesome and challenging Ironman Championships in Port Elizabeth on Saturday, 1st September 2018.
Her fans can also expect to see Katherine in Pretoria at Menlyn Mall on the 5th of September at 11:00 am and at Maponya Mall in Soweto at 14:00 on the same day.
