Rumors have been stirring that Don Diamond could be leaving The Bold And The Beautiful, as his character falls further under Sheila Carter’s spell.
Don Diamont has portrayed Bill Spencer Jr on the long-running American soap opera The Bold And The Beautiful for over a decade. Diamont debuted the character, an illegitimate son of media tycoon, Bill Spencer (Jim Storm), in 2009. He has starred on the show ever since, taking a brief hiatus five years ago to participate in the Italian version of Dancing With The Stars.
Set in Los Angeles, California, Don Diamont’s Bill Spencer is one of an unbelievable amount of characters we have met over the decades. But Bill Spencer has become quite the core character, with romantic storylines with several characters, most recently linked to the show’s villain, Sheila Carter.
But why do some fans now have concerns that Don Diamont could be leaving the soap? Let’s take a look. Be wary that upcoming spoilers for The Bold and the Beautiful are to be discussed in the piece.
Bill Spencer remains trapped under Sheila’s spell
Despite despising one another for years on The Bold And The Beautiful, Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) and Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) shocked their friends and family with the revelation they are romantically linked.
The latest episode of B&B (Monday, January 16) sees Bill stand by Sheila to the shock of Taylor, Steffy, and Katie. Katie (Heather Tom) tries, and fails, to reach her former husband. As a result, Taylor (Hunter Tylo) suggests taking drastic action, offering herself up to the cops to end the blackmail.
Years back, Taylor Hayes shot Bill Spencer after believing he had assaulted her daughter, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood). Last year, this plot line resurfaced, as it came to light that Taylor had been the one behind the attack. But B&B fans are still speculating that someone else could be behind the shooting.
With Bill Spencer’s morphing character, some are now curious as to his future on the soap.
Is Don Diamont leaving The Bold And The Beautiful?
No, it does not appear that Don Diamont is leaving The Bold And The Beautiful any point soon. The actor has not made any indication that his character is leaving the show. However, this is at the discretion of the writers.
Earlier this year, Steffy described siding with Sheila as a “death wish,” which raised alarm bells for some viewers.
But Bill Spencer is featured in episodes of The Bold And The Beautiful over the next two weeks, signalling his character isn’t going anywhere.
This is not the first time fans have thought Don Diamont was leaving
There have been multiple points that The Bold And The Beautiful fandom have feared Don Diamont was leaving. But this has never been the case.
Last time this occurred was in the summer of 2021. Before that, fans were convinced that Diamont was leaving after he was shot, which happened in 2018. He only left briefly that year to participate on the Italian Dancing With The Stars.
It appears that Don Diamont is not leaving any point soon. Some fans are predicting that Don Diamont’s Dollar Bill could be playing Sheila, suggesting that his current plot line still has much development still to come. Expect more twists and turns, as always, on The Bold And The Beautiful.
