Viewers of The Bold and the Beautiful met Paris Buckingham this week, but there's so much more to Zoe's (Kiara Barnes) sister than met the eye during her debut. Portrayer Diamond White has opened up about what fans can expect as they continue to get to know the new B&B character, and it seems she's yin... and yang.
"Well, she is all about helping people," White tells CBS in Pittsburgh about Paris' lighter side. "She's a really genuine person; she's a social worker. Anything that she could do to help anyone else she will and that stood out to me. It's interesting because in the sides there was nothing about her being the warm person she was. I guess that they came to develop that after I read. The sides are kind of more like someone who always knows they have a secret in the back of their head."
So, yes, though Paris at first seems like a good person, there just may be a darker side to the character that is revealed in future episodes. It's anyone's guess as to what the writers have in mind -- but White is looking forward to seeing how her new alter ego fits into the canvas.
"This is the sister that no one knew existed. We already know my dad is shady. I don't know if that runs in the family or not," White muses. "But I think [her presence] is going to shake things up a bit, especially with my sister and her dynamics between the different guys that she's into. Now there's two of us. I can pop in any moment and be like, 'Actually, sis, I think I got this one.'"
The actress continues, "It is going to be interesting to see where Paris falls in, especially because she isn't into fashion at all. She doesn't know anything about fashion. She's not into this world that they all have established and done well. She's kind of just in and messing stuff up, I guess!"
