INTERVIEW

Quick Take Darin Brooks

Watching B&B’s encore episodes, how is it for you to revisit Wyatt’s international love stories? One year he was marrying Hope. Another year, he was married to Steffy. After that, he was kissing Katie … “To put it lightly, it brought up so many good memories. We all had such a blast, with Kim Matula [ex-Hope] and Jacqui [MacInnes Wood, Steffy] and Scott [Clifton, Liam] and Ashleigh Brewer [ex-Ivy] and Heather [Tom, Katie]. We all had such an amazing time there. That’s what is the best part of all of this. The cast and crew, we all get along so well, and we enjoy each other. Some sets are not like that but at B&B, we just have so many wonderful memories together.”

Thoughts on where the story left off, with Flo finding out that Sally is faking her terminal illness? “As usual, Wyatt is in the dark. He’s always the last to know. We have a joke on set that Wyatt is always the last to know, and if you have a secret, don’t tell Katie.”

Flo vs. Sally: Where is Wyatt’s heart? “Wyatt’s commitment and his heart is with Flo. It always has been because they were childhood sweethearts, and finally he had the chance to reconnect. But then, Sally’s dying and he’s got to put everything on hold because he feels like that is the right thing to do, to take care of her and make sure she is happy and comfortable and gets the right treatment. Watching these episodes has been fun because we really put a lot into it. I can’t wait to see where it goes because, look, the s–t has got to hit the fan at some point, right?”

Considering you are real-life pals with both Courtney Hope (Sally) and Katrina Bowden (Flo), are you as conflicted as Wyatt about who he should be with? “[Laughs] No. We are all friends. What I like about us is we all like to run lines. We all like to talk about the scenes and where they may go, or not go. We love to talk all that out so we can make the best choices possible.”

Any idea what’s ahead for Wyatt? “No, and I wish I did — but whatever comes next when we get back to work, I know it’s gonna be good!”
