Hunter Tylo Bio
(Episode # 2468-present)
Hunter Tylo stars as “Dr. Taylor Hayes”, a psychiatrist whose life has been intertwined with the lives and loves of the Forrester and the Marone families on The Bold and the Beautiful.
A former tomboy who broke horses, roped cattle and trained guard dogs, Tylo is widely considered one of the most beautiful women on television. She has been featured on the cover of TV Guide as one of the sexiest women in daytime and in People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People in the World in 1993 and in 1998.
Raised in the Texas countryside, Tylo once spent her allowance on a mail-order alligator and considered becoming a veterinarian. She had to give up a scholarship, however, to raise a child and soon moved to Dallas to pursue modeling and commercial work. Tylo gained valuable theatrical experience in the plays of Neil Simon and others, and earned her first movie role in the movie-of-the-week License to Kill.
In 1985, Tylo became the street waif “Robin McCall” for three years on All My Children. A role on Days of Our Lives followed, with Tylo playing the wicked “Marina Toscano”. When she joined the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful in 1990, Tylo garnered the distinction of having played major roles on daytime dramas on all three major networks.
Tylo has made guest appearances on such television series as Dallas, The Family Channel’s Zorro, Diagnosis Murder and Burke's Law. She starred in the worldwide hit mini-series The Maharaja’s Daughter, which was shot in India and Canada, and more recently, Hammerhead: Shark Frenzy for the Sci-Fi Channel. She also released a best-selling autobiography, Making a Miracle. Commercial work has always been plentiful for Tylo, who has represented such companies as Canada Dry, Nissan, Naturalizer, Cover Girl, and Pantene.
An accomplished equestrienne bareback rider, Tylo currently resides in Southern California. Tylo has four children, Chris, Izabella, Katya, and Michael, “Mickey,” who passed away in 2007, at age 19, after suffering an epileptic seizure.
