'Serial Scoop Now' #19: Pierson Fodé and Ashleigh Brewer at 'The Bold and the Beautiful' Pop Up Fan Event in NYC

The Bold and the Beautiful stars Pierson Fode and Ashleigh Brewer chat with Serial Scoop Now host Roger Newcomb.
On the latest episode of Serial Scoop Now (1.19), we traveled to The Bold and the Beautiful Pop Up Fan Event in New York City on Monday, September 14 and spoke with actors Pierson Fodé (who plays Thomas Forrester) and Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy Forrester) about their characters, what it's like to watch an episode with fans, their favorite thing about working at B&B and more.

"It's nice to see it through their eyes, and not just my judgmental eyes of myself," Brewer said about watching Monday's B&B episode with the large group of fans in attendance.

"I love egging the crowd on," Fode added. "I become a little bit of a ham when people are involved."
