The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Matthew Atkinson Opens Up About Whether Thomas Is Truly Obsessed With Hope Again
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Matthew said there’s a real reason why Thomas and his sister Steffy Forrester have been so busy trying to get their parents Ridge Forrester and Taylor Hayes back together again. He said, “There’s sort of two direction you can go with where Thomas has left with his parents, because Thomas is deeply deeply wounded by his childhood and the way his father treated his mother in his eyes. And you can go two directions with that, and I think that the way that it has been—the direction that I’ve taken it to, that it makes sense, in last couple of years—is to say he never felt like he was… he never felt like his father approved of him, cared for him, or loved him, really. And all he wanted was his father’s approval, and his father leaving is what left this massive hole in Thomas’ heart. And so for the rest of this life, this isn’t a Ridge problem; it’s a Thomas problem. It’s something he needs to figure out.”

Matthew also said that he wasn’t surprised to see Thomas locking lips with Hope again. He said, “Annika and I have thought that would be such a fun storyline to play, is to have the bad boy with the good girl. The fans, in a lot of ways, have shown that they have major interest in that.”
Matthew also said that it would be good for Thomas, who has always been known to be a playboy, to date again. He said, “It seems like that for a person like him, that kind of behavior is natural for him in the situation he’s in.”
