Not quite. The Bold and the Beautiful marked the first recurring role for Eakes, but prior to that she appeared as a guest star in numerous prime-time shows, including Matlock, Cheers, Falcon Crest and The Wonder Years. The former Miss Georgia 1982 later went on to star in One Life to Live and All My Children, on which she has portrayed the character of Krystal Chandler since 2003.
