The Bold and the Beautiful's Lawrence Saint-Victor isn't just starring on the CBS soap opera as Carter Walton. He's also writing for the glamorous drama series, having penned an episode that aired this week.

Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter Walton, The Bold and the Beautiful; ex-Remy Boudreaux, Guiding Light) is one of the most lovable actors in the business, so an increase of his presence and influence is always welcome. Fans were overjoyed when he was recently brought back to contract status at B&B, but now there's even more good news to share: he has written another episode of the CBS soap opera.

Saint-Victor -- whose writing credits include two 2015 episodes of B&B as well as the web series Wed Locked that he created with Karla Mosley (ex-Maya Avant, B&B; ex-Christina Moore, GL; Amanda Sinclair, The Young and the Restless) -- took to social media to share that he helped write the B&B episode that aired on Thursday, April 15.

"So this happened!! An episode that I had the privilege of writing aired today. It was such a wonderful learning experience," he tweeted. "Thank you [B&B executive producer and head writer] Brad Bell for giving me the opportunity, and to our amazing writers and the entire team for all of your support."

Soap Central spoke with Saint-Victor in January of this year, just before Carter found out that his then fiancée, Zoe (Kiara Barnes), had been flirting with Zende (Delon de Metz). During the chat, we asked him if he had any plans to write for B&B again, and he expressed that he would be thrilled with the opportunity.

"I would love to play around in that toolbox again," he shared. "When you write, you get to play everybody. You get to be Brooke, Ridge, Liam, Steffy, everybody. And that's the fun part. 'What would Bill do? Oh, I get to be Bill today!' [Laughs]"

Saint-Victor also shared that being back on contract at the soap gives him more insight into the daily happenings on the show and what's going on with the various characters -- which is a huge asset that he says being on recurring doesn't provide.

"When I wrote back in 2015, they gave me an outline, and the writing of it wasn't easy -- like, our writers work hard -- but understanding where everyone was and what they wanted and where they were going, that was pretty easy, because I was there. Prior to this run, it would have been very challenging for me to figure out things like, 'What does Bill [Don Diamont] want? What does he want?!" he said with a laugh. "Because even watching the show, I would still be behind with their writing [because they're ahead of what's airing]. But being there, you can easily figure out, 'Here's where we are and here's where we're going and where we're pushing it.'"

As for whether or not fans will see more scripts from Saint-Victor, he shared with us that he is constantly busy working on his craft, so the answer is yes.

"I'm working on stuff now. I'm always writing. Karla and I are working more on Wed Locked and trying to see where that can go," he revealed. "And that's kind of what I do with [my] time: I work on B&B or acting stuff, husband, father, work out, write. That's kind of the list of to-dos."
