'The Bold and the Beautiful' Casts Rome Flynn as Zende Forrester Dominguez

Rome Flynn
Drumline: A New Beat actor Rome Flynn has joined the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful as Zende Forrester Dominguez, TV Insider is reporting.

Zende had been orphaned when both parents died of AIDS. Zende had lived at an orphanage with his younger brother, but sadly, his brother also died of the disease. To help pay his way, Zende worked around the orphanage and helped take care of the younger children. Kristen Forrester (Tracy Melchior) and her husband, Tony Dominguez (Paulo Benedeti), discovered when Zende became too old to live in the orphanage he would probably end up on the streets or working anywhere he could find work. Kristen and Tony legally adopted young Zende, choosing to give him both of their surnames.

[SPOILER ALERT]

Zende will return to the Forrester fold thanks to Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) and Pam (Alley Mills), who want the young man to be an intern at Forrester Creations and learn the family business. Just one catch: Ridge and Pam don't want the other interns to know Zende is a Forrester. Among those also applying for an internship at the company is young firestarter Nicole Avant (Reign Edwards). When she and Zende meet, sparks fly.

Flynn makes his B&B debut on June 29.
