Happier Days for Hunter

Below is a little tidbit from my interview with Hunter Tylo (conducted just a few weeks before the tragic drowning death of her son). We have all been so shocked and saddened by the news, I thought it might be helpful to remember a happier time for this beautiful actress. This was the final question of our interview, and she after she answered, she thanked me for such a fun interview and for bringing up so many wonderful memories for her.

I asked her what some of her favorite/funny/outrageous memories were for her during her 17 years of playing Dr. Taylor Hayes on The Bold and the Beautiful. Here was her answer:
One of the most funny scenes to film were the Big Bear cabin scenes with Ian Buchanan (who played James Warwick). Our cabin had caved in during a blizzard. We were covered in fake ice and snow, they whitened our skin, we had gelatin crystals added with water that they put in our hair, eyebrows and eyelashes to look like ice.

Bob Barker was in the studio next door and he had received a bomb threat (because of his work with PETA and other animal services. I guess that brings out the crazies! -- Cindy's note, not Hunter's). So we all evacuated to the Farmer's Market at the back of the building. So Ian and I are walking around, forgetting what we look like, and people are looking at us. The tourists are wondering what the heck we're doing. We just laughed when we realized what we looked like. Ian and I still laugh about that.
