The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Don Diamont And Scott Clifton Open Up About Bill And Liam’s Father And Son Dynamic

It’s not easy raising kids, and it’s certainly not raising them in this fictional town of Los Angeles, and if there’s one person who knows that all too well, it’s Bill Spencer. That’s because he’s certainly messed up a lot over the years. The Bold and the Beautiful star Don Diamont, who plays Bill Spencer, along with Scott Clifton (Liam Spencer) recently opened up about their characters’ father and son dynamic on the small screen. Here’s what they have to say about it!

The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Don Diamont And Scott Clifton Open Up About Bill And Liam’s Father And Son Dynamic

Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Don admits that he was just as floored as his character when Bill found out that he had a son in Liam Spencer way back in 2010. He told the publication, “It was mind-blowing. This guy I don’t think ever thought he’d have a wife or a sustained relationship with a woman, let alone dealing with a son. It’s enough for him to deal with him [laughs]. So when Liam came along, at first he wasn’t interested. He didn’t want it. He was in utter disbelief. That was his initial response.”

Liam also added that during his first scenes with Don, he felt like Bill was his father right away. He said, “ I hadn’t found out he was my father yet and the way the lines were written, Liam gave Bill a bunch of attitude and Don pulled me aside after one take and said, ‘You and I have a lot of work to do. We have to earn the audience’s trust. We have to earn them rooting for us as father and son. There is plenty of time for you to give me sass, but right now, I’m your boss and we need to play that so later, those father/son moments are earned.’”

The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: What’s Next For Bill Spencer?

Scott added that Liam is also certainly very concerned about Bill’s new dalliance with the evil and also manipulative Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown). He said, “It feels like betrayal. It also makes Liam wonder if the answer to these questions is that Bill is being manipulated or blackmailed or if his choices are in some ways not actually volitional. If so, that’s really terrifying, too, because who messes with Bill Spencer? Sheila swears along with him that they that this is a totally voluntary romantic entanglement but that just raises way more questions than it answers. I think at this moment, their relationship is terrifying for Liam.”
