All Of Deacon's Dirty Deeds On The Bold And The Beautiful

The multi-talented Sean Kanan has quite a few irons in the fire these days. After playing the villain Mike Barnes in the 1989 film "The Karate Kid Part III" — the role that helped launch Kanan's career — he's reprising that character on the Netflix series, "Cobra Kai." He not only recently published his new book, "Way of the Cobra: Welcome to the Kumite," per his website, but he also acts in and produces the Emmy award-winning series "Studio City." Having gained soap opera stardom as AJ Quartermaine on "General Hospital," Kanan has also become a fan-favorite in his portrayal of the self-serving troublemaker, Deacon Sharpe, on "The Bold and the Beautiful."

Deacon is so popular that he's even crossed over to "The Young and the Restless" a few times. His moral compass is practically non-existent as he's engaged in blackmail, quite a bit of infidelity, and even murder over the years. Considering the wicked Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) has befriended Deacon and even come to rely on him, a lot can be said about the company he keeps. As much as he's tried to avoid trouble lately, Deacon Sharpe can't help but get caught up in reprehensible schemes.

Let's take a look at some of the despicable acts Deacon has perpetrated.

Deacon is definitely not winning any parenting awards

Rick Forrester (then Justin Torkildsen) had been raising young Eric Forrester III with Amber Moore (Adrienne Frantz) on "The Bold and the Beautiful." When Rick saw that Amber was going to marry C.J. Garrison (Mick Cain), he threw a monkey wrench into the works by finding little Eric's biological father, Deacon Sharpe, per Soaps. Rick brought Deacon to Los Angeles in 2000, offering him $100k to give up his rights as the child's father, and award Rick and Amber full custody. Because Deacon wavered over the offer, a bidding war between the wealthy Forrester and Spectra clans ensued. Ultimately, Deacon realized he was being strong-armed and decided against giving away his parental rights for little Eric (via Soap Central). 

As Showbiz Cheat Sheet reported, Deacon started to fall deeply in love with Amber. He asked her to live with him for four months, promising her sole custody at the end. At one point, Deacon's girlfriend Carmen Arena (Gladise Jimenez) became jealous over Deacon and Amber's attraction, and attempted to throw the baby off of a roof. Luckily, Amber and Deacon saved the child, but Carmen accidentally fell to her death. As attracted to Deacon as she was, Amber remarried Rick instead.  

Bitter about this, Deacon set his sights on Rick's sister, Bridget Forrester (then Jennifer Finnigan).

Deacon's misdeeds get disgusting

According to Soap Opera Digest, Bridget Forrester was in love with Deacon Sharpe. In order to get back at Amber for dumping him, Deacon got Bridget to bring him as her date to Amber and Rick's wedding. The two then ran off to Las Vegas and eloped. Deacon received a phone call from Bridget's mother, Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang), as well as Rick and Eric Forrester (John McCook). The three pleaded with him to let Bridget go back home. To prove his control over Bridget, Deacon put the hotel phone's receiver in a glass of water, setting it so the Forresters could hear everything. As he and Bridget made love — thereby taking her virginity — she had no idea that her family listened to the entire thing, per Soap Central.

If that wasn't despicable enough, Showbiz Cheat Sheet explained that some time later, Deacon was consoling Brooke after she broke up with Ridge Forrester (then Ron Moss). Brooke and Deacon couldn't control their feelings and ended up sleeping together. As a result, she got pregnant with Hope Logan (Annika Noelle). To make matters worse, Brooke pretended the baby belonged to Whip Jones (Rick Hearst) while she and Deacon continued having their affair.

At Brooke's baby shower, Bridget accidentally overheard her mother and Deacon talking about how he was her unborn child's father. Mortified beyond belief, Bridget broke up with Deacon (via Soap Scoop).

Deacon causes trouble in Genoa City

Amber Moore (Adrienne Frantz) had left Los Angeles and went to Genoa City where she struck up a romance with Danny Romalotti (Michael Damian), on "The Young and the Restless." Deacon Sharpe went there to try to win her affections, per Soap Hub. Since Danny was an aspiring artist, Deacon pretended to be an art dealer and tasked Danny with forging a painting for the FBI. His scheme was to get Danny arrested so he could move in on Amber. As if Deacon wasn't sleazy enough, he told Amber that he could get the charges against Danny dropped if she slept with him, (via Soap Central). Amber acquiesced, but when Danny found out, he dumped her.

Deacon ended up becoming friends with Nikki Newman when they met at Alcoholics Anonymous. However, Nikki's nemesis, Meggie McClaine (Sean Young), wanted to break up Nikki and her husband Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). She paid Deacon to join her scheme to slip Nikki an alcoholic beverage without her knowing. While in prison, Meggie revealed to Nikki that Deacon had been in on the plot with her. Despite trying to explain that he had truly developed feelings for her, Nikki kicked Deacon to the curb.

Deacon and Quinn begin a toxic relationship

On "The Bold and the Beautiful," Deacon met his match in the scheming Quinn Fuller (Rena Sofer). His daughter, Hope Logan (then Kimberly Matula), was romantically involved with Quinn's son, Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks). Deacon and Quinn entered into a volatile relationship themselves, eventually getting married. Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) interrupted the nuptials and played a video call from Hope who tried talking them out of it. That didn't stop the wedding, but eventually Deacon and Quinn split up. When Quinn later kidnapped Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton), Deacon intervened but she pushed him off a cliff where he was presumed dead in the ocean, per Soaps in Depth. He proved hard to kill and Deacon seemingly came back from the dead, threatening Quinn with an axe. She tried to get him to run away with her, but he wouldn't do it (via Soap Central).

According to Soaps, some time later, a mysterious assailant shot at Quinn several times. She was on a terrace when it happened again, and Deacon smashed his way into her room. When she exclaimed that someone was shooting at her, Deacon was nonchalant, and poked fun at her. While the list of people who would want Quinn dead was long, in the end Deacon revealed he was the shooter. He pulled a gun on her, but Ridge came in and managed to knock Deacon out. As a result, Deacon went to prison.

Deacon and Sheila become thick as thieves

Per Soap Central, Deacon Sharpe — after being released from jail — was drowning his sorrows at a bar when he met the twisted Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown), on "The Bold and the Beautiful." The two discussed how each was estranged from their respective children. Deacon had been kicked out of his house, so Sheila told him he could stay at her place. He tried not to get involved in her schemes. When he discovered Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Finn Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) lying in a back alley after having been shot, he called for help. Upon later learning that Sheila was responsible, Deacon kept quiet.

Sheila had disappeared after the shooting, but returned in disguise. When Deacon had a one-night stand with a woman, he was shocked to learn it was Sheila and he let her stay with him. As much as he wanted to avoid the trouble that came with her, Deacon and Sheila entered into a twisted romance, per Soap Dirt. Eventually, Steffy accidentally bumped into a disguised Sheila at Il Giardino's restaurant. Because Sheila was wearing sandals, Steffy saw that one of her toes was missing — the one Sheila had cut off to previously fake her death (via Soaps). With the walls closing in on Sheila, Deacon deleted the restaurant's security footage of her, buying the villainess some time as she went on the run.
