Ronn Moss, who played Ridge Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful, left the show after a serious car accident that compelled him to try new avenues. He also revealed that another reason for his exit was the huge pay cut producers asked him to take.
The Bold and the Beautiful follows the lives of the wealthy Forrester family, who own a fashion brand. Ronn Moss played Ridge Forrester for 25 years before his exit in 2012. He disclosed that despite his request to the show's creator, Bradley Bell, not to recast the character, Bell recast Thorsten Kaye to play Ridge in 2013.
