Tanner Novlan and his wife, Kayla Ewell, are like the king and queen of the soap world. Both actors appear in CBS series The Bold And The Beautiful and their chemistry on and off-screen is electric. Let’s explore their family life and see what Novlan has been up to since briefly stepping off the B&B canvas.

Shortly after B&B revealed Finn is actually alive, Tanner Novlan appeared on The Talk to discuss his character’s revival. Of course, everyone wanted to know whether Novlan knew Finn’s true fate. “Here’s the thing,” he admitted. “I kinda knew. Don’t be mad at me, but I was blown away at the fan’s reaction!” He then told fans how sorry he felt for keeping it a secret. “I couldn’t believe the support. But I’m contractually obligated not to tell you guys, and I felt awful about it!”

With more than 90,000 Instagram followers, Tanner Novlan has a wide fan base who love to keep up to date with his family life and career endeavours; so let’s find out more about what he has been up to.

Tanner Novlan’s family life and career

The 36-year-old actor was born in Paradise Hill, Saskatchewan, in 1985 and was propelled to fame via 2009 horror movie Maneater. He then landed a role in Bones, which grew his popularity, and went on to appear in TV series such as Mohawk Girls; Roswell, New Mexico; Modern Family and, of course, The Bold And The Beautiful.

Novlan married fellow actor Kayla Ewell on 12 September 2015 as he proposed in May of that year. In May 2019 they announced they were expecting a baby and Kayla and Tanner welcomed their first child, Poppy Marie, on 16 July 2019.

They’re also expecting another bundle of joy as their son will arrive in August 2022. The couple have appeared alongside each other in TV series such as Freaks And Geeks, The Vampire Diaries and The Bold And The Beautiful.

What Tanner Novlan got up to after B&B exit

Tanner Novlan went to the US/Mexico border in March 2022 with Kayla to carry out some charity work. Ewell took to Instagram to share she’d visited the border with This Is About Humanity – a “community dedicated to raising awareness about separated and reunified families and children at the border”.

On 31 March, Novlan wrote on Instagram: “Visiting El Bordo border wall that separates more than just two countries. Speaking to migrant families and asylum seekers with Tijuana Sun Hambre was truly moving.“ Kayla’s Instagram reveals this isn’t the first time the couple has supported the community as they were also part of an event in 2021.

While Novlan has been away from the B&B canvas he has put his acting talents to good use. The actor is set to appear as Mike Murphy in comedy-drama Puckheads, which follows a professional ice hockey player who suffers a knee injury and is forced to become an assistant coach.

This seems like the perfect movie for Novlan as hockey is a hobby of his. He plays once or twice a week with a group called Bad Boys Skate.
