Per Entertainment WeeklyCBS reached out to Hunter Tylo, but she was not convinced to play the role of Taylor again. The producers made the decision to look elsewhere for the role after Tylo was not responsive to their requests. It appears that Tylo rejected CBS’ offer and Allen will be here for the long haul. Taylor was not on the show and characters talked about Taylor being on a missionary journey, via TVLine. Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), Thomas Forrester(Matthew Atkinson), kept her presence alive. Ridge was also mentioned occasionally because of Brooke Logan’s (Katherine Kelly Lang), memorable rivalry.
