The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Jennifer Gareis Opens UP About The Casting For Her On Screen Son, And How She Got Many ‘Flames’ Instead Of Sons!
Speaking to CBS Soaps in Depth, the stunning actress admitted that she often auditions with handsome, strapping men when it comes to recasts and new roles. But little did she know that back in 2008, The Bold and the Beautiful producers would ask her to be part of the audition process for someone else that she didn’t have in mind – her on-screen son!

“My first response was, ‘Are they hot?’” she laughingly recalled to Soaps In Depth. “They told me, ‘Believe us, you’re not going to think of them that way.’”
Because Jennifer is such a fantastic actress (and a beautiful one, might we add), it was hard to find someone that would work as her son. That’s because Jennifer had so much chemistry between all of the men that auditioned for the role!
“Brandon Beemer initially auditioned to play my son, too,” she explained of the actor who’d wind up playing Owen, “and they thought I had a lot of sexual chemistry with him.”
Jennifer adds that the role ended up going to actor Texas Battle. The actress said that the entire process was one that she will never forget, mostly because producers for looking for a new son for her, yet she kept on getting potential ‘flames’ instead. When it comes to the daytime television world, you really can’t make this stuff up. Ha! Luckily, Jennifer has managed to do a great job playing the role of a mom and a part-time lover to someone else, of course.
