A B&B spokesperson offered no comment on Williams' hiring, but the show did recently put out a casting call for an African-American character named Candace. The role was described as a "leading lady. 19 to 24. A model. Beautiful. Smart. Not afraid to go after what she wants." At the time the role was listed as recurring, though it was hinted that it could become a contract role.

. After ABC announced the cancellation of One Life to Live, her character was quickly phased out to allow the show to focus on more of its established characters.
Williams will make her appearance on The Bold and the Beautiful on May 8.
