Hearst first appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful in 2002. His time with the show was short, just six months. He returned to B&B with great fanfare in July 2009. In fact, he reported back to the B&B set just one day after taping his final scenes as Ric Lansing on ABC's General Hospital.
Hearst began his journey in daytime television in 1989 on Days of our Lives. From 1990 to 1996, he appeared as Alan-Michael Spaulding on Guiding Light. He followed that up with a run as Matt Clark on The Young and the Restless.
During his six-and-a-half years with General Hospital, Hearst won two Daytime Emmys. The actor won a previous Emmy for his work on Guiding Light.
Hearst's recurring status takes effect on June 17.
