Robin Riker Bio
(Episode #5336 - Present)
Illustrious actress Robin Riker joins the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of “Beth Logan,” mother of Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang), Donna (Jennifer Gareis), Katie (Heather Tom) and the late Storm Logan (William deVry). Beth, who had been mysteriously absent during the harrowing series of tragic events that her children had endured, including Storm’s suicide and Katie’s heart transplant, is forced to face her children and reunite with her family by Nick Marone(Jack Wagner).
Acting since the age of two, Riker was introduced to the theatre early in life by her parents who had owned, operated and acted in many theatres throughout the United States. Thus, her stage credits are extensive. Some of Riker’s notable theater stints include Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, at the Geffen Playhouse and in the lead role as “The Marquise de Merteuil” in Les Liaisons Dangereuses at the Blank Theatre.
As a teenager, Riker decided leave her roots in theater and conquer Hollywood. With $45 and a dream of a career in film and television, she packed her bags and moved to Los Angeles. Soon after her arrival, Riker was discovered while working in the commissary at Warner Brothers Studios. Within weeks of her discovery, she received her very first national television job. Riker has been working consistently ever since.
Riker, the lead actress in five prime-time sitcoms, Brothers for which she was nominated twice for an Ace Award as “Best Actress in a Comedy Series,” Shakey Ground, Thunder Alley, The Gregory Hines Show, and Get a Life, has guest-starred in dozens of prime-time television shows including Big Love, Boston Legal, and Six Feet Under. Her film credits include Spiritual Warriors, Don’t Look Under the Bed, Stepmonster, Brink, Body Chemistry, and Alligator.
Riker moved to Los Angeles to join The Bold and the Beautiful from New York, where she resides with her husband, renowned director of photography, Evan Nesbitt.
