Might B&B viewers finally meet Ivy’s mother? BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL sent out a casting notice for “Claire,” a recurring role for a, “strong, beautiful woman who is 50-60 — and must be Australian.” When asked over the summer about the possibility of casting her TV mother, Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy) quipped, “That would be great. We actually spoke of her yesterday on the show. We said that she was in Australia and doesn’t like getting on planes very much, so we’re going to have to figure out how to get her here. Maybe we can shoot a cruise or something?” The role is expected to begin taping in two weeks.
