The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: What’s Going On With Naomi Matsuda?

It seems like she was on for just too short of a time, but when we did see her, she sure did leave quite the impression on her fans. Of course, we are talking about The Bold and the Beautiful star Naomi Matsuda, who is best known for her role as Li Finnegan on the hit CBS soap. A lot of fans can’t help but wonder what’s been going on with her lately but luckily, we’ve got some answers for you. Here’s what you need to know!

The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: What’s Going On With Naomi Matsuda?

Back in October, Naomi said that she always knew she’d become a soap star. She told Soap Opera Digest that when she moved from her native Japan to San Diego, she and her mother learned English thanks to daytime television. “I started kindergarten and I was a year late, and I had to learn English, so every day when I came home from school, I watched soap operas,” she recalls. “I saw Susan Lucci [ex-Erica, ALL MY CHILDREN] every day. The soap operas helped me speak English.”

Naomi also admitted that she certainly did face a lot of challenges when she first moved to Hollywood. She said, “I was 17, coming up to L.A. I was always much older and more mature — and a little bit crazy. We would go to clubs with fake IDs then. When you’re a teenager, you want to grow up fast and live your life. Your dreams are just so big and anything is possible. You just kind of go with it. I was going to these nightclubs, underage, and meeting these producers. I was very lucky that nothing happened to me in a negative way. Very lucky.”

In August, she celebrated one year on the soap. Sharing a head shot that was taken during the same time that she was first hired on B&B, Naomi wrote, “Hard to believe it’s been a year since I joined the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful. It’s been an incredible experience that I hope continues for another 50 years. Thank you, @bradleybell, @evabasler, @midwesttalenttowatch, @fsetalent, the amazing cast and crew, and all of you who have supported me through #teamli. It’s greatly appreciated!”
