Marie Osmond can check starring on "The Bold and the Beautiful" off her bucket list. In an interview with Fox News Digital, the 64-year-old actress explained she has loved soap operas for years and was first offered the role before her 11-year Las Vegas residency with her brother, Donny Osmond. "I was talking to Brad [Bell] and all this stuff, and he goes, ‘We need to have you on,’ and I went, ‘Oh my gosh, that would be incredible,’" Osmond recalled of the conversation she had with the soap opera's executive producer and writer. "Well, years went by, and I just got so busy with Vegas, for example. When you have [an] 11-year residency, we had a real residency: five days a week, all year, off to tour summers and Christmas. So, in order to do anything extracurricular was really, really tough with the schedule." MARIE OSMOND ‘MIRACLE’ SHE REMARRIED FIRST HUSBAND: ‘WE APPRECIATE EACH OTHER MORE THAN EVER’ Osmond said once her Las Vegas residency concluded, she had more free time to explore some of her "bucket list." "My current album, ‘Unexpected,’ debuted No. 1 on Billboard, and, I mean, I've had hit records and No. 1s, but never debut," she said. "It kept going up into the charts. It went up into the top ten, 29 different times and I went, ‘29 — my age,’" Osmond joked. "It did something, and something snapped. I swear to you, I went, 'I can't beat that' and I went, ‘I want to do my bucket list.' I want to do things that I've never been able to do because either I'm under contract or I can't break a leg," she continued. "I told my husband, I said, ‘I think I want to do all these crazy things’ and he says, ‘Go for it.’" The singer told Fox News Digital her "crazy" bucket list consisted of jumping out of a plane.

I zip-lined over — it was terrifying — 300 feet over this waterfall, and I'm doing ‘The Bold and the Beautiful.’ It's a bucket list. It's incredible. I'm just having way too much fun." Marie and her husband, Steve Craig, remarried in 2011 after divorcing in 1985 after three years of marriage. Osmond shared some cheeky relationship advice, noting the secret to a happy marriage. Marie shared with Fox News Digital that she was recently at dinner with her husband and their friends when they were asked about their "secret." "He goes, 'Oh, I think the secret is that you take 25 years off in between," Osmond said with a laugh. "We're best friends, and he loves me for me, and we have so much fun together. He's the love of my life, and the children are all out of the house now, and it's just us, and we're just having fun. We're having the best time." APP USERS CLICK HERE Osmond is a mother to eight children: Stephen, 40, Jessica, 36, Rachael, 34, Brandon, 27, Brianna, 25, Matthew, 24, and Abigail, 21. She also had a son, Michael, who died in 2010. MARIE OSMOND DEFENDS NOT GIVING KIDS INHERITANCE MONEY: IT BREEDS 'LAZINESS AND ENTITLEMENT' As Marie continues to check things off her list, she admitted jumping out of the airplane was "the worst." "I was sitting on the edge, and the guy with me shoved me, and that was horrid," she recalled. Osmond admitted that acting was also "scary" because she does not consider herself an actress. "I love acting, and I always wanted to be [an actress]. I studied with Lee Strasberg when I was, you know, right out of Donny and Marie, but when our family lost all the money, we had to all go back to work," she said. "I'm the kind of person that I was raised — the only failures in life are those who fail to try," Osmond continued. "You can't get better if you don't give it a shot, and so I did." Osmond noted that she's appeared in three movies for Lifetime and guest starred on FOX's "Fantasy Island" earlier this year. "This one though," Osmond said of "The Bold and the Beautiful." "Brad called and he said, ‘You know I have this big special coming up where ’Young [and] the Restless' and ‘The Beautiful People’ are going to be on,' and I know a lot of them. He said, ‘Do you want to be on it?’ and I said, 'You know what? Let's do this.'" Osmond shared that her character on the soap opera is a "countess" who "needs an attitude adjustment."
