CBS ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ (B&B) spoilers finds that star Matthew Atkinson (Thomas Forrester) recently opened up about who he was a big fan of before he came to daytime television. And wouldn’t you know, his answer was the one and only Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) of ‘General Hospital’. That shouldn’t surprise anyone, right? Here’s what he has to say.
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, the handsome actor said, “I never really watched soaps with my mom as a kid, but I do remember her talking about certain characters and the one that popped up a million times was Jason from ‘General Hospital’. To jump into Genoa City and actually meet people you’ve heard of for years was exciting, and Steve was on The Young and the Restless when I came on.”

Matthew added, “It was just one of those cool moments, of like, ‘I’m meeting someone I’ve heard of my entire life.’ My mom was so taken by that.”
While it’s great to see soap stars share their mutual admiration for each other, we have no doubt in our heads that fans would also love to see a cross over between B&B’s Thomas Forrester and GH’s Jason Morgan.
Wouldn’t that make for great daytime television viewing? After all, the fictional town of Los Angeles could sure use someone like Jason Morgan to kick some butt, especially when it comes to someone like Thomas and all of his manipulative ways. Ha!
