Emmy winning CBS daytime soap The Bold and the Beautiful revealed on Wednesday (18 March) that one of its characters is transgender.
It was a twist that the most loyal of viewers did not see coming.
The big reveal came during a confrontation between sisters Maya (Karla Mosley) and Nicole (Reign Edwards).
'You’re not my sister, Maya. You’re not Maya at all,' Nicole said to her sibling. 'You’re Myron, my brother.'
Maya is a model who's dating Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) and transitioned from a male to a female at a young age.
