It took a near death experience for him to change his life for the better, but it’s not like he’s complaining about it anymore. The Bold and the Beautiful star John McCook recently opened up about the transformation year that his character Eric Forrester has had. Keep reading below for everything you need to know.

The Bold and the Beautiful Star John McCook Opens Up About Eric’s Very Transformational Year

Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Eric opened up about the reels that he submitted for this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards. As many fans know by now, the actor has been nominated for the Outstanding Lead Actor award. How exciting!

When asked about what episodes he submitted, John said, “You really need to tell a story. I picked a scene in the office with Ridge and Eric, where Eric was very happy to be behind his desk again, and Ridge was hiding the fact that he knew his father was dying. And so there’s subtext going on with that, and they tell each other how much they love each other. Then he says, ‘Oh, by the way, there’s your old stapler.’ And Eric sees the stapler [engraved by his late wife Stephanie] and realizes that they’ve all done that for him. They hug each other and we see how much they love each other.”

He continued, “Then a quick scene when Eric is at home with Donna and he’s feeling very physically alarmed by his hand shaking. He says, ‘I’m really scared, Donna.’ And then he collapses, which scares her. And then the last one is at the party where he’s been going around, telling everybody how much he loves them. And, of course, everybody knows he’s dying, but he doesn’t know [they know]. And then he realizes that Ridge lied to him about him winning the fashion show and realizes that it’s a wonderful thing that his son did for him. And then he collapses and dies and there you go, and cue the band and go home. So it was pretty good.”
