‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ Spoilers: Meet Vasthy Mompoint
When she first arrived to the studio, she said that it felt like a whirlwind. “They said, ‘You’ll be called to set early but you won’t go on for, like, five or six hours.’ I thought, ‘Great.’ So, I was sitting there, getting into my zone, going over my lines, and I hear a knock on the door and they were like, ‘Yeah, we’re going to be starting five hours earlier,’ and once I got on set, it was just warp speed. I wasn’t used to working that way but I absolutely loved it. My brain went to dance mode and the director was like the choreographer, shooting out information super-quick, and it all just clicked.”
Thankfully, Vasthy said that she’s made some great new friends on the set of the show, including Tanner Novlan, who plays fellow doctor John Finnegan.
“He was like, ‘Is this your first soap opera?’ I said yes and he said, ‘I’ve got your back. I haven’t been here that long but I remember my first day and you’re doing a great job,’ ” she relays. “He was like my coach. He and the whole cast were so supportive.”
Vasthy also says that she’s got a special family connection to B&B. “The Bold and the Beautiful helped my grandmother learn English when she moved to America,” explains the daughter of Haitian immigrants.
“She’s no longer with us but when I used to stay home from school, many of my early memories are of my grandmother watching B&B, and that’s why it was so full circle. When I booked the show, I thought, ‘How cool is that?’ ” Mompoint first airs today.
