Soap opera actress – Ashlyn Pearce has left the role of Alexandria ‘Aly’ Forrester on the American television series “The Bold and the Beautiful”. Her exit was a big shock for her fans, as they thought she will be going to Paris with her dad Thorne Forrester for treatment, little did they know that the writers are planning to kill her character off. Ashlyn first debuted on November 19, 2013, and won the hearts of many of her fans. The actress however confirmed her exit on Twitter yesterday tweeting to her 10K fans : “Thanking everyone aka The Bold and the Beautiful fans for all the love and support she received, and that Aly Forrester was a role that she feels really blessed to have been able to play.” Ending her message with “#TeamAly“.
Ashlyn has been portraying the role since November 19, 2013, and last appeared as Aly on July 23, 2015 before being killed off by Steffy Forrester. In Yesterday’s episode by the roadside, the exact same location when her mother, Darla Forrester was accidentally killed by Steffy’s mother Taylor Haynes. The disturbed daughter of Thorne and late Darla Forrester, found herself losing control upon seeing Steffy, seeing her made all her hatred come back, and she also started seeing her dead mother again who kept telling her to hurt Steffy and Maya because if she doesn’t then they will ruin everything. So she made plans to hurt Steffy first, by following her all the way to the roadside, she came at Ridge’s daughter with the tire iron. In between the fight, the tire iron fell from Aly’s hand and across the pavement. Aly didn’t give up and went on to pick a rock. One thing led to another, and as Ivy Forrester pulled over in her car, she witnessed Steffy grab the tire iron that was lying across the pavement and hit Aly with it, which made her lose her balance and land onto her back, hitting her head very hardly on a rock and dying on the spot. Others may call this self-defense, but I don’t really call it that. There are other ways of defending one self without killing the person. Ridge and Taylor’s daughter knew what she was doing, and yet she went along with it. Well lets just say like mother, like daughter. Taylor killed Darla and Steffy killed Aly.
Pearce is such an amazing actress, it sucks seeing her character that she portrayed so well die. Just as Thorne made plans to take her daughter back to Paris with him to get the help she deserves Steffy took that away from him. Thorne has already lost his wife, and now losing his daughter too won’t go on too well with him. Will Thorne forgive Steffy when he finds out the truth or will he press charges against her? Was it really a self-defense? Hitting someone with a tire iron is not self-defense. Aly was messed up which is why she brought the tire in the first place and tried to kill Steffy her. What was Steffy’s excuse for using that weapon against her? If Steffy was innocent she wouldn’t have lied to the cops. Just saying. But since it’s soap opera, he will forgive her.
Frankly speaking, the head writers should not have killed Aly Forrester off. She was supposed to get the help she deserves, and making Steffy the killer makes it even more worse.
Wishing the talented actress good luck for her future. She will truly be missed as Aly.
