At A Glance
Justin Torkildsen stars as Rick Forrester, the strong-willed son of Brooke Logan Forrester and Eric Forrester.

Justin was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado, where he learned to ski when he was only two years old. He used his talent and skills to give handicapped people skiing lessons. Justin got his start in acting when he won the lead role of the child in The King and I. He went on to act in other regional theatre productions including Henry V.

Justin has also modeled for many major ad campaigns and was featured as a guest on Roseanne's talk show where he was a contestant in a dating game segment. Justin joined B&B when the producers were looking for a recast for Rick and they remembered him from a tape that his agent had sent in for a different role.
