Los Angeles – Ronn Moss is quitting his role as Ridge Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful after 25 years with the popular daytime soap, reports EW.com.

Moss, who played fashion magnate Ridge Forrester since the inception of the show in 1987, did not choose to renew his contract due to salary issues, according to EW.com.

Moss' exit was confirmed by Production company Bell Phillip Television in a statement: "Ronn has spent an amazing 25 years with B&B. We will always consider him family, and we wish him only the best in all of his future endeavours."

Moss was one of the so-called "core four" on Bold, referring to the foursome of original actors still on the show, including Susan Flannery as Stephanie Forrester, John McCook as Eric Forrester, and Katherine Kelly Lang as Brooke Logan.

Ridge Forrester has for years been caught in a love triangle with Brooke and psychiatrist Taylor Hayes, played by Hunter Tylo.

Moss will shoot his final scenes for The Bold and the Beautiful on Tuesday, 14 August and his last episode will air in September on CBS in the US.

South Africa is approximately 12 months behind the US broadcast.

* The Bold and the Beautiful
airs in South Africa on SABC1, every weekday at 18:00.
