Isabella and Gianna Garcia play the role of Lizzy Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful. The girls have been seen in multiple episodes of the soap this year, and you may have seen them in their recurring role on The Fosters as well!
1. How do Isabella and Gianna enjoy working on The Fosters?
This was the first show the girls were on so I think we all have a special place in our hearts for The Fosters. The girls did well on the show and had a lot of fun filming with the cast. Everyone was great to work with and accommodating.
2. What was their first day on set like?
A little stressful! It was our first time on any set, but our production assistant was AWESOME and put us right at ease. The girls had their own trailer and enjoyed meeting some of the actors they were working with before the filming.
3. What is it like filming with Alexandra Barreto?
Alex is very sweet and a lot of fun to work with. She took the time to hang out with the girls before their scenes together so the girls were very comfortable with her on set.
4. Is there a way to tell the girls apart on screen?
Yes! Gianna has a small bald spot on the left side of her head above her ear. Bella has a small skin tag on the back of her head that you can see in some shots.
5. What is it like to have the girls be a part of an internationally iconic soap opera?
So much Fun!! The cast and staff of The Bold & the Beautiful are fantastic and work really well with the girls. Their set teacher is the best I’ve worked with so far. I got hooked on the show once the girls started.
6. How different is it working in primetime vs. daytime?
I found the Bold & the Beautiful to be more flexible in the filming of scenes. For example, if the girls were fussy or not cooperating they were able to skip ahead and film a different scene to allow the girls to have a break and calm down and then they would try the scene again. I don’t think prime time tv has this kind of advantage in filming the scenes. The good thing is the girls are identical twins so usually one of them was ready to work on set and were in a good mood.
7. What has been the best part of working with Karla?
Karla is very sweet, kind and very approachable in person. Her calm demeanor made it easy for the girls to connect with her on set.
8. What has the experience been like filming with Jacob?
You can tell Jacob has his own kids. He knows how to make the girls laugh and have a lot of fun on set. The girls love giving him high fives. Both Karla and Jacob would hang out with the girls before their scenes together and would play with them which really helped the girls feel safe and secure on set.
9. Is there anyone in the cast you hope Isabella and Gianna get to film with?
It would be fun to have a scene with John McCook since he is iconic on the show. Fingers crossed for the future.
10. Do you have a favorite scene they have filmed this year for the soap?
The girls had a really special connection with Reign. They were buddies and Reign spent a lot of her free time in the girls dressing room and they would have dance parties. Our scenes with her are my favorite.
