As soon as our friend Andrew turned us on to "The Bold and the Beautiful," his favorite show, we were mesmerized by the alluring vision that is Hunter Tylo. Her character, Dr. Taylor Hayes, has the analyst's uncanny ability to stare straight into our souls and see the truth, no matter how hard we try and hide it.
As we fell deeper and deeper under the Bell Spell of "B&B," we came to love Stephanie (Susan Flannery), Jackie M (Lesley-Anne Down), and Donna (Jennifer Gareis) -- heck, we even started to like Brooke (Katharine Kelly-Lang)!
But there is one lady so special, so beyond human that she could return from the dead to claim her rightful place by Ridge's side -- and that lady is Hunter Tylo. A quick review of her body of work: She first came to our attention on "All My Children" in the mid-1980s. That is where she met her first husband, Michael Tylo, whom she played opposite on the show. She landed at "Days of our Lives" a few years later as Marina Toscano. But it was her role of Taylor Forrester on "The Bold and the Beautiful" that catapulted her to international acclaim. She began in 1990 and played the part through 2002. She returned in 2005 and has been smack dab in the middle of all the Forrester/Logan/Marone drama ever since.
And now, since Taylor and Ridge are finally getting married again (unless Brooke manages to screw it up for them), we thought it fitting to celebrate her unique beauty and galactic glamour. Ladies and gentleman -- click here to behold all that is Hunter Tylo.
