This week soap vet Lesli Kay
(ex-Molly, As the World Turns
; ex-Lois, General Hospital
) began taping scenes on The Bold and the Beautiful
's set at CBS Television City in L.A. She'll debut as the new Felicia Forrester on Nov. 30. "We are thrilled to have Lesli aboard as the rebellious Felicia Forrester," says B&B
chief Bradley Bell
. "Lesli is a pro who will be stepping into the middle of a gut-wrenching story. If anyone can deliver the goods, it's Lesli." The show had no comment on why Colleen Dion
— who has played Felicia on and off since 1990 — is not reprising her role. Hmm... Eh, I'm already over it. Bring on the Lesli!
