Back in April, actor Clint Howard spoke with PEOPLE about his experience returning to the soap opera world in a new role in The Bold and the Beautiful. The television veteran now plays the mysterious homeless man Tom.

Howard described his experience on set as "exhilarating," partially due to the show’s brisk pace of production.

"You're handed a lot of scenes to do and you’d better be prepared," he explained. "I was taught by both my mom and dad, Rance and Jean Howard, since I was a little kid that my primary responsibility is to be prepared to show up to work, even as a very young child. And then knowing that soap operas, it's possible to get handed boatloads of dialogue, and you've got to learn it."

"You've got to understand it," Howard added. "You got to be able to deliver it. You got to be light on your feet."
