More Bobbie Eakes Bios & Profiles
Biography #2Bobbie Eakes is an American actress. Before she started acting, she was Miss Georgia 1982. She is most known for her role as Macy Alexander Forrester Forrester Chambers Forrester Sharpe on the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful, which she played from 1989 to 2000 and from 2002 to 2003. A very popular good girl kind of character, Macy battled with her inner demons (including an addiction to alcohol) before finally finding happiness with Thorne Forrester (played by Jeff Trachta and then Winsor Harmon). On the show, Macy was an accomplished singer in her own right (in tune with Bobbie Eakes' hobby).
In July 2000, her character died in a fiery explosion when her car crashed into a gasoline truck. She was brought back to the show during the B&B location shoot at Portofino, Italy in October 2002. It was revealed that her father, who was in the Witness Protection Program, had been hiding her as she recuperated from her wounds in Italy. After much persuading, Macy came back to America, only to be gravely injured when a chandelier fell on her after a performance at a new nightclub in Beverly Hills. She was taken off life support off-camera, as she was placed on recurring contract status. The decision was made to kill Macy off a second time when Eakes had decided to take the role of Krystal Carey Chandler on All My Children. The role of Krystal is somewhat based on Eakes's Southern upbringing.
