‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ Spoilers: Kiara Barnes (Zoe Buckingham) Leaving the Soap for New Prime Time Role.
Barnes turned to social media when news broke saying on her Instagram
Soooo…the cat is officially out of the bag! I’m so excited to be joining the cast for FANTASY ISLAND on FOX!!!🏝 I’m so grateful for everyone who made this possible. Dreams really do come true. Continue to believe, and you will receive🕊✨Cheers to a new adventure!
She is also rocking a new look, with a very short ‘do, reminiscent of her on screen sister’s, Paris Buckingham (Diamond White).
The Bold and the Beautiful producers are yet to address what this means for Zoe. Currently she is embroiled in a rather ho-hum storyline of redemption and trying to win back the heart of her ex-fiancé, Carter Walton (Lawrence St. Victor). It is possible that the role will be recast, but it doesn’t seem like fans will be sorry to see the character go.
Zoe was introduced to the soap as a stalker who followed her ex-boyfriend, Xander Avant (Adain Bradley) from the U.K. to Los Angeles. As she became a main character, she ditched the British accent but not the dastardly deeds.
While audiences didn’t quite warm to Zoe, the introduction of her younger sister, Paris was like night and day. While it is interesting to see the family dynamic between the sisters, it’s safe to say the fandom is team Paris and no one really needs Zoe to come back to Forrester Creations with a new face, anytime soon.
We hope Kiara has better luck with a new character and want to congratulate her on her new primetime role!
