William deVry as Storm Logan on The Bold and the Beautiful
has gone from dependable defense attorney to Stephanie's (Susan Flannery
) unsuccessful assassin. In recent weeks, Storm and Logan family Patriarch were last seen headed for Europe.
DeVry spoke with Soap Opera Weekly
about his and fellow Bold and the Beautiful
cast members' reaction to Storm being revealed as Stephanie's shooter, as well as what could be in store for the Logan men and women.
“I think it was just ‘another day at the office,' the actor said of his fellow cast mates' take on his character emerging as the real shooter. “Everybody was wondering who it was. We were all running around asking each other. But once we all found out nobody came up to me and said, ‘I can't believe you did it!' But I'm proud of the fact that we were all able to keep the secret amongst ourselves. I don't believe it ever got out anywhere, which is great."
He himself admitted that he wasn't altogether taken by surprise by the developments. According to him, he first had an idea that he was going to be the culprit some time before the said storyline even began to unfold on the air.
“He just sort of snapped,” deVry offered in explanation of Storm's actions. “One of the things that really set Storm off was the rape of his sister [Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang
], and that Stephanie helped facilitate that. And them locking Donna (Jennifer Lynne Gareis
) in the steamroom, and all of the cruelty towards his family. But for him, [the uncontrollable rage] is not who he is in his daily life. It's not who he tries to be or how he defines himself. But at some point he just snapped and then he was like, ‘What in the hell happened?!'
As for Storm's future, the Bold and the Beautiful
actor concedes that he and Stephen (Patrick Duffy) have their work cut out for them in terms of sorting their relationship while in Europe.
“I think they both have their issues to work on, a lot of guilt on Stephen's part and a lot of anger on Storm's part,” deVry remarked.
As for the repercussions of recent events surrounding him and the rest of his family, deVry thinks “the Logan family itself is a stronger unit. This certainly opens up the possibility for a whole family reunion, with the mother and father, but I don't think the situation is completely settled. I think you'll see there's more to play out.”
