Molly Carter is a fictional character on The Bold and the Beautiful, portrayed by Marilyn Alex.


Molly is the mother of Sheila Carter and Sarah Smythe. Molly thinks that Sheila is dead because after Sheila kidnapped Molly and Lauren Fenmore and held them hostage at the farmhouse, an accidental fire broke loose and everyone believed Sheila perished in the flames but It was revealed that Sheila had escaped the farmhouse fire and started a new life in Los Angeles. She began to use Molly to win Lauren's favor in the hopes that Lauren would eventually forgive her for her crimes. Then, Sheila could marry the renowned fashion CEO, Eric Forrester. Her plan, however, did not work; Lauren and Sheila remained at odds for years. Molly returned to Los Angeles years later to attend Sheila's wedding to James Warwick.
