Ted King and fellow daytime alum Naomi Matsuda (ex-Tori, Days of our Lives) have been cast as Jack and Li, the parents of Dr. John "Finn" Finnegan (Tanner Novlan). According to Entertainment Weekly, the soon-to-be grandparents will be arriving in town for the birth of Finn and Steffy's (Jacqueline MacInness Wood) baby.
King is set to make his first appearance on July 30, and Matsuda will make her first appearance on the show a few days later on August 2. The casting of Finn's parents will give viewers more insight into the doctor's backstory. Finn, who is currently engaged to Steffy, first appeared in July 2020 when he was treating the Forrester Creations CEO after her motorcycle accident. He stood by her while she went to rehab for her pain pill addiction and when Liam was believed to be the baby's father.
As many soap fans know, Ted King has a long history in the world of daytime. He played the roles of Danny Roberts on Loving and The City, Luis and Lorenzo Alcazar on General Hospital, and Tomas Delgado on One Life to Live. His other television credits include Charmed and Timecop.
