CBS ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ (B&B) spoilers say that Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) has a new love interest and yes, everyone is loving it. Newcomer Tanner Novlan has made his debut as the sensitive, caring but also oh so handsome doctor Finn and according to the actor, working on the set of the hit CBS soap certainly does feel like home for him. Here’s what he has to say.
In a new interview with Soap Opera Digest, Tanner says that he’s waiting a long time for this opportunity. And that’s not just because his career has gotten him to where he is today, but also because he was supposed to begin filming before the global pandemic that is the coronavirus suspended production of the soap several months ago.

“It’s been a long time coming,” he reports. “We started this process in March, which is crazy to think, and the screen test with Jacqui was all the way back in March, so it has been a pretty unique process. But I’m so happy to finally be working and doing it.”
The actor also says that he had to keep his new gig under wraps, which Tanner says wasn’t very easy for him. That’s because he was so excited to be a part of the show that he wanted to shout it out from the highest rooftops.
Tanner explained, “I wasn’t able to speak about it or tell anyone about it because we didn’t know how long the shutdown was going to be. And that’s a big thing for me because my family, my mom especially, has been a life- long B&B fan. I mean, she loves the show. Our family dog’s name was Thorne — with an e — so I remember ever since I was young hearing the theme song, hearing the storylines, so it was so exciting, and a real honor to be welcomed into that family. Now that it’s out of the can, I just can’t wait to hit the ground running.”
