The Bold and the Beautiful fans were quite worried Monday night when news broke that Linsey Godfrey, who plays Caroline Spencer, had been injured in an accident. Initial reports indicated that both of her legs were broken and she had been taken into surgery. Now, a few more details have emerged.
Initial reports indicated that Linsey Godfrey’s injury happened after she was struck by a car as she walked down a sidewalk in Los Angeles. A bystander reportedly pulled her out from under the car and she was rushed to the hospital.
People confirmed that Godfrey was hit by a car after it was in a collision and it careened onto the sidewalk. Linsey, 26, had injuries to both of her ankles, and she is expected to make a full recovery.
The show wasn’t taping on Monday, and a Bold and Beautiful spokeswoman has indicated that taping for the next few days has been rearranged to accommodate Linsey’s needs and story. She’s right in the thick of some major storylines right now, but it sounds as if the show will find a way to work around what she needs for her recovery right now.
Linsey’s significant other, Robert Adamson, who plays Noah Newman on The Young & The Restless, shared an update on Godfrey’s condition via Twitter. He wrote the following.
“She is going to be ok. Thank you. Already charming her Dr’s and Nurses. She’s been through worse than this and she’ll be back on her feet before we all know it. She’s the best girl and the best momma, and soon this will all be a distant memory.”
As Bold and Beautiful fans know, Linsey and Robert welcomed baby Aleda Seren last summer. As for those tough times Adamson referenced, the remark was surely a nod to Linsey’s battle with Hodgkin’s lymphoma when she was a teen.
Though the actress hasn’t shared any updates herself yet, many of her co-stars have taken to Twitter to lend their support. Scott Clifton, who plays Liam, noted that while it’s not his place to pass along details, he can share that she will be okay and she has remained fabulous throughout the trauma.
Jacob Young, who plays Caroline’s estranged husband Rick on the show, tweeted asking for prayers and noted that Linsey is a strong fighter, but that prayers and all good thoughts would help. Current nemesis for Ridge’s affections Katherine Kelly Lang, who plays Brooke, also tweeted out her support.
Though the initial reports had sounded potentially dire, The Bold and the Beautiful fans are relieved to hear that Linsey Godfrey is doing okay and should fully recover.
