Dr Chris Brown almost guest-starred in The Bold & The Beautiful
But a simple mistake blew his acting debut...
Dr Chris Brown has been a very busy man! The vet-turned-TV Presenter has gone straight from the jungle to Sunday Night Takeaway, and revealed how he was thiiiiiiis close to making his acting debut on US soap opera The Bold & The Beautiful.
“I was over there (in the US) to promote Bondi Vet on American television, and they wanted to promote it on CBS,” he told Kate, Tim & Marty.
“They said, ‘We want you to do some publicity so we’ve got you on The Bold and the Beautiful’. I said to the publicist, ‘Um, you know I’m not an actor?’ and the publicist said, ‘You know what Chris, it doesn’t really matter!’”
He arrived on set ready to begin filming when he was asked to show his working visa.
“I was like, ‘Oh, I don’t have a visa, I’m here on a publicity trip’, and they said, ‘Oh, we’re very strict about our unions here, so you cannot do our show!’
“I was going to be Ridge’s (Forrester) Australian cousin!”
Unfortunately for The Bold & The Beautiful fans, it wasn’t meant to be… but luckily the rest of us can catch him on Sunday Night Takeaway on Channel 10 at 7.30pm every Sunday night.
Dr Chris Brown also took on the Quick Draw queen herself, Kate Ritchie!
She has won the last four rounds in a row, can Chris take her down?
