Rena Sofer explained why she decided to join The Bold and the Beautiful rather than return to General Hospital in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest.

In May, TV Guide announced that the Emmy winning Sofer would be joining B&B in the newly created role of Quinn Fuller. The character will be the mother of new heartthrob, Wyatt Fuller who will be played by fellow Emmy winner Darin Brooks. Sofer began taping on the Los Angeles set in May and will begin airing July 12.

Sofer, who has appeared on 24 and Two and a Half Men, first made a name for herself on daytime. She starred on Another World, Loving and then went on to play Lois Cerullo on GH. She won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in 1995 and left the show the following year. She made a brief return in 1997 and in the June 17 edition of SOD, the actress explained her 17 year absence from the ABC soap opera.

"I love GH and I totally love Lois and respect everything about her but I'd be returning to a show and re-creating a character that isn't the same, so why not just come back and and create something new and give that a shot?" Sofer said.

Sofer declared that B&B was a much better route for her to take at this point in her life. The 44-year-old did admit to being self conscious about going from being the ingénue to playing someone's mother.

"The first thought I had was, 'Oh my God. I'm going to be the mother of a 20-something year old boy [laughs]," she said.

Sofer went on to say that she has a 27-year-old stepdaughter, Meghan Kurth. Sofer said that once she got over that hurdle with Brooks, she became more vested in the role of playing his mother. Aside from the maternal offering that her character will display, Sofer teased more aspects Quinn.

"She's a jewelry designer, and she may be involved with somebody who is powerful-but that could be almost on B&B, couldn't it [laughs]?" she said.
