Eric and Stephanie Forrester’s second son, Thorne, has also come and gone through the years but remained on-screen on a much more consistent basis than his sisters. Played through the years by Clayton Norcross, Jeff Trachta, Winsor Harmon, and Ingo Rademacher, Thorne spent a lot of time living in the shadow of his older brother, Ridge Forrester. He even married two of the same women that Ridge married, Caroline Spencer (Joanna Johnson) and Brooke Logan Forrester (via Soaps In Depth).
Thorne spent many years in an on-again/off-again romance with Macy Alexander (Bobbie Eakes), but his daughter with Darla Einstein (Schae Harrison), Aly Forrester (Ashlyn Pearce), died in 2015. Thorne was last seen in Los Angeles in 2019 when Rademacher briefly played the part and Thorne suddenly developed an Australian accent. When his short-lived marriage to Katie Logan (Heather Tom) didn’t work out, he left town. However, did pop up in Brooke’s 2022 dream about all the men who have been in her life, played once again by Harmon (via Soaps.com).
