Guy from Bold & Beautiful -- Sued & Repossessed

4/2/2009 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Winsor HarmonIt's got all the drama of a really good soap opera: a hunk in distress (Winsor Harmon), a financial ultimatum ($35,129.24), and public humiliation (the repossession of an $80,000 Mercedes Benz) -- except this story isn't playing out on daytime TV.

Winsor Harmon, the dude who's played square-jawed Thorne Forrester on the "Bold and the Beautiful" for the past 13 years, is in the middle of a legal war over a car he leased through his company.

According to a lawsuit filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Harmon's 2006 Mercedes Benz was repossessed last year because he allegedly skipped out on lease payments. Now, Daimler Chrysler Financial Services says he still owes more than $30k in costs for the car -- plus some serious interest.

Cue to music swell ... and fade to black...

Calls to Harmon's reps have not been returned.

THANK YOU for FINALLY showing something about a 'soap' star- how do these people keep getting overlooked by the paps when they are SO visable to people everyday on TV- I for one would love more tidbits like this about the soap 'stars' - is there a website dedicated to gossip about soap stars-- something like this site perhaps I don't know about?

You guys are idiots!    

Y'know...if you've been working, ok, play-acting, for 13 years (and no doubt making ridiculous money), and now find yourself having vehicles repo'd..you're a conplete idiot. Other than the inevitable taxes, I wouldn't owe a dime to anyone! It's called a SAVINGS account...look into it.

Hey TMZ, where's the story about Joe Bidens crackhead daughter?? oh that's right, that would actually be newsworthy, I don't want to see real news here instead of boring garbage.

Do soaps pay that badly? I don't understand people making so much money and not being able to pay their bills when the rest of us everyday Joes can get buy making piddly *hit and still manage to have decent lives. Unfortunately, when people make that kind of money they feel invincible and they don't realize they need to stash some of it away for a rainy day. Why don't they figure out that they are just mortals like the rest of us instead of thinking they're so much more.

That's a horrible pic of him, He is actually very good looking. The thing about soap actors is that they get paid according to how many episodes they appear in. He isn't a huge character on the show, so he doesn't appear in alot of them. Depending on the storyline, you may not see him for months at a time. I'm sure they receive some kind of base salary to be available and there are times when certain characters have big storyllines and appear alot. He has had some of those. However, if you aren't in a current storyline, you don't get paid as much. It's a weird business for soap actors. It isn't like if you are on a regular TV series where you appear in an episode every week.
