The Bold and the Beautiful debuted its updated opening credits earlier this week, and while a bunch of new faces were added -- Hello, Thomas, Nicole, and Zende! -- there was also one noticeable absence from the opening: Winsor Harmon's Thorne Forrester.
"I want to thank everyone for 17 Beautiful years playing Thorne," Harmon shared on Twitter. "I love you all. Thank U for the amazing run B&B you'll forever B a part of me."
Though his image may be gone and Harmon's Twitter message might sound like a goodbye, the actor will remain on recurring status with the CBS soap.
After a short-term run as Del Henry on All My Children, Harmon took on the role of Thorne Forrester in 1996. He remained on contract with B&B through 2010. Since that time, he's appeared on a recurring basis. Harmon was featured fairly prominently earlier this year when his on-screen daughter, Aly (Ashlyn Pearce), was killed off.
