Author-activist-actor Chaz Bono will guest star next month on the CBS daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful.

The 46-year-old Bono will play a minister on two episodes of the show to air March 31 and April 1, PEOPLE reported.

“I'm very excited to have been cast in a role on The Bold and the Beautiful,” Bono told the magazine. “I'm grateful that they are willing to pay me to do something I love, which is to act.”

Appearing this week on OWN's Oprah: Where Are They Now?, Bono told host Oprah Winfrey that looking at photos of himself before he transitioned was “painful.”

The Bold and the Beautiful currently has a transgender storyline. Last year, fashion model Maya Avante (played by Karla Mosley) came out transgender. And transgender actor Scott Turner Schofield joined the cast in May, making him the first transgender actor to play a major, recurring role on a daytime drama.
