Jacqueline MacInnes Wood left ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ in 2013
It’s hard to imagine anyone but Wood as Steffy. The actor has portrayed Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) and Taylor Hayes’ (Krista Allen) daughter since 2008. Wood’s performances have been praised by fans and earned her two Daytime Emmys for Lead Actress.
But in 2013, the actor decided it was time to leave The Bold and the Beautiful. According to Soap Opera Network, Wood’s departure from her was because she wanted to pursue other projects, and she and the show weren’t on the same page. Wood was bumped to recurring status and made sporadic appearances throughout 2013 and 2014.
But in 2015, Wood signed a new contract to return to the show full-time. Since then, the only time Wood’s left from her is for maternity leave in 2019, 2021, and 2022, when her sons were born.
Steffy Forrester is in a major storyline
The Bold and the Beautiful has Steffy in a massive storyline. Her mother-in-law Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown), is back to stir up trouble. But Sheila is not alone in her revenge plot; she’s enlisted the help of her new beau Bill Spencer (Don Diamont).
Thanks to Bill’s blackmail of threatening to send Taylor to prison, Steffy agreed not to press charges against Sheila. With Sheila now free, Steffy and Finn worry for their family’s safety. Steffy and Finn face an uphill battle in taking down Sheila and Bill.
There will be many challenges along the way, but Steffy’s a fighter like her grandmother and namesake, Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery). Sheila may have won this round, but Steffy’s not giving up until she’s removed Sheila from their lives.
