Casting and awardsEdit

The role was originated in 1979 by Robert S. Woods, who left the series in 1986 but returned in 1988, and currently portrays the role.[3][4] A 2008 time travel storyline transplants Bo and Rex Balsom (John-Paul Lavoisier) back to 1968, where Woods portrays his character's father Asa Buchanan, and Lavoisier plays a young Bo from July 21 through August 26, 2008.[4][5][6][7][8] As Bo and Rex return to the present, Woods' real-life son Tanner plays young Bo on August 26, 2008 as he departs to serve in the Vietnam War.[4][9]

Woods won a Daytime Emmy Award for Lead Actor for the role in 1983,[10] also earning nominations in 1986,[11] 1993,[12] 1994,[13] 1999,[14] and 2000,[15] multiple Soap Opera Digest Award nominations, and four MVP trophies from Soap Opera Update.[3]
