The Bold & the Beautiful star Linsey Godfrey, who plays Caroline, was struck and pinned down by a car on Monday, February 2. After being rescued by bystanders, she was rushed into surgery to repair her broken legs. Though the actress is expected to make a full recovery, she did tweet yesterday that she was facing a "long road."

This, of course, begs the question of whether or not B&B will write her injury into the storyline, or whether they will opt for a temporary recast until Godfrey is back on her feet.

Unlike movies, which can shut down production or reshuffle their schedule when an actor gets hurt, or primetime, which shoots many fewer episodes a year, daytime doesn't stop for any man - or woman.

Sometimes, there is no choice but to go with a recast, no matter how jarring that might prove to the audience, in order to keep the story going. Check out some of our favorite fill-ins at Entertainment Weekly, and how they worked out!
