Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Leaving THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL (Updated)


Jacqueline MacInnes Wood has chosen not to renew her contract with THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, according to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest. The actress has played Steffy Forrester on the soap since June 2008. There's no word yet of her last airdate or if B&B plans to recast the role.

UPDATE:
According to the CBS Soaps in Depth Twitter feed, the Digest news is not completely accurate: Contrary to rumors, Jacqueline Wood remains Steffy, is "continuing to tape, with episodes airing through July and then beyond. Technically, she IS taking a break. But as the show says, 'like she's done before.'"

UPDATE #2:
From Soap Opera Digest online:

B&B's popular star, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy), is leaving the show. "Jacqueline MacInnes Wood is taking a short break, as she has done in the past, from B&B," confirms a spokesperson for the No. 2 soap. "She remains as the character of Steffy Forrester and is continuing to tape, currently with episodes airing through July of 2013 and then beyond." Digest learned the actress had wrapped filming and was sent flowers on her last day; turns out, she is taping again this Friday.

UPDATE #3:
More information here from Hunter Tylo (Taylor) who announced she is also leaving the show.

UPDATE #4:
Fans of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Steffy Forrester have been disheartened ever since the brunette departed L.A. for Paris, but viewers needn't count her out. She'll be airing on Thursday, July 11 and Friday, July 12.

"Wouldn't you like to know?" teases Scott Clifton (Liam), when asked where his storyline with Steffy was heading now that her portrayer, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, is technically off-contract with the show. "Let me be clear — she's not gone," he clarifies. "She'll be around. If you talk to her, she'll tell you she has no intention of, like, never showing up again. She's going to be coming back."

  1. B&B has invested too much in the triangle to not recast.

  2. Do NOT recast. For heaven sakes lets let Liam and Hope get together then any problems after that is up to them and not Steffy's fault.

    1. What do you mean amen? Steffy is a far better actress than Hope could ever be. I hate Hope's fake laugh and the way she bats her eyes. The show needs Steffy.

    2. The show has lost so many key characters that I barely pay attention anymore. The only two they have left is Brooke & Erick! Brookes character is boring, the same over & over. Now Hope is doing the same with Wyatt & Liam as Steffy and hope with Liam!! Same story line just new ppl. (Fire the writers & get new ones!) They should use thorn more. Would make it a tad interesting.

      Delete
    3. yay, thorn should be in charge of fc - make him more irresistible/savvy, and less focus on the logans...new story lines, no more triangle, and no more Room8 (most boring)...brooke can stay the same - need evil characters.

  9. Please do not do any more work on your face. We can already tell you had your lips done. Please stop their. You do not want to look like Hunter. She looks terrible.

    1. Oh stop! She is a young woman and has not done anything to her face. The show cannot survive without her. Hope is so damned boring and Brooke is portrayed as such a slut, total lack of morals. Wondering why they have not taken Susan Flannery and Ron Moss off the credits, it has been a long time. Do not recast Steffy, no one can come close, she is outstanding, but would not blame her for moving on.

  15. Jacqueline MacInnes Wood is a beautiful and talented young woman. She really made the show worth watching. It will be boring without her. So disappointed that she won't be seen on a regular basis.

  22. When they bring her character back, hopefully there will be a hot guy that loves her and only her. Why are all the men not related to the Logans in love with Hope? Same goes for Rick...makes no sense.

    1. I agree. They should have let steffy and liam be together longer before tge break up. Introduce wyatt then cause trouble. The B&B is turning into a tween soap!

  24. Good Lord, thank you this fucking home wrecker is leaving. She was such a whore, going after Bill, Owen, AND Liam when they were in relationships. I hope she isn't recast. God I hate her.

  25. calm down it`s a soap not real life, Haters of Steffy remember..Hope is like her mother the apple doesnt fall far from the tree..Taylor wasn`t the home wrecker..Brook was is and always will be, look what she was willing to do for the baby..

  26. Been watching this show since it began and am so very fed up with the way the script is going...geez get rid of Hope, and Brooke! Brooke is a tad long in the tooth to be a femme fatale, and the character Hope is really hopeless while she sits on the sideline waiting for Liam, and here is something, people often get second medical opinions...especially concerning the ability to conceive... this show is becoming rather foolish.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I will never ever watch this show again. Hopes Story Line is so BORING! Enough said. Check out Facebook and see how everyone feels. Certainly not the Whiny Blonde!

  28. First off I want to say sorry for your departure, second I pray that you truly get what your heart is desiring at this moment. I think you're a wonderful actress but I also believe that B&B need to bring in more male characters to give it a little more pizzaz. As for HOpe and Liam I feel that its their time to shine without any manipulations from Bill or ANYONE ELSE. Taylor is good but her character has taken a turn for the worse and that's so ugly. I feel that they both are going to come back I pray that there's someone for BOTH OF THEM WHEN THEY RETURN. AS FOR MR. BILL SPENCER WHEN IS HE GOING TO FALL OFF HIS THRONE SINCE HE WANTS TO MELLOW IN EVERYONE'S LIFE.

  29. I love Steffys character and it really sucks to see her leave but on the upside hopefully more will be seen of Jacqueline on the big screen. She is a very gorgeous and talented actress. B&B will not be the same. Hope is a hopeless future for the show. They need a new twist after losing Taylor and then Steffy...I forsee the show losing a lot of fans if new twists aren't thrown in and I personally love the show and would hate to see the end of an amazing show

  32. Please don't seperate Liam and Steffy. I truly believe that they bring out the best in each other. Why must the fans be subjected to seeing history repeats itself? Hope is just like her mother and I'm sick and tired of the Logans always winning. Let true love prevail and let Liam and Steffy be together

  33. Taylor and Ridge need to be together and stay off HD .lol to many fixes to stay young look like robots. Go to the beginning. Steffy is like Brook. Hope is like Taylor. Anyway I like them all as actresses. But in the soaps world team Logan rocks

  34. I DON'T SEE STEFFY AS A HOME WRECKER SHE HAS LEARNED HER LESSON AND LIAM IS HAPPIER WITH HER ALL HOPE IS A CRY BABY GIVE HER A TISSUE AND SEND HER PACKING STEFFY NEEDS TO COME HOME TO HER HUSBAND AND LIAM NEEDS TO GROW A PAIR AND GO AFTER HIS WIFE IT IS TIME FOR ROLLS TO REVERSE AND TEAM TAYLOR AND STEFFY TO RUN FORRESTER AND BROOK AND HOPE LICK THERE SHOES A WHILE

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yup...I hate the Logans why do those bi*** always have to get it good. Now it is time for Liam to see Hopes true colors (LIKE MOTHER LIKE DAUGHTER)! Im just saying going after a man whose wife just left, and as for Liam he needs to man up and if he really loves Steffy go after her thats what true love is not just sit and wait.

  36. Come on man you are not in high school. Let Hope go and make a life with someone else. PLEASE DO SOMETHING AND BRING STEFFY BACK WITH LIAM they deserve to be together. Hope go find another man to live your life with or check Oliver or Thomas for god sakes. Make babies with one of them PLEASE why cant you leave Steffy and Liam alone.

  39. well i will miss both of them it's not the stars fault it's the writer's fault with this liam and hope and steffy junk like they did with brooke ridge and taylor that's why ronn moss left he got tired of playing that boring role so my take is if they going to keep this up end the show like so many other soaps have canceled

    ReplyDelete
  40. Steffy and Taylor are the reason I watch, she is intelegent, smart, young and hip, not afraid of anything. she brings the best out of Liam. By the way Olive was Hope's first love. The writers should get creative, and stop making hope like a desperate young woman. Women these days are like Steffy not Hope. I love Taylor's character also. She should be given a realhandsome man. Brooke Logan and the Logans are slotts. They have no scruples. Brooke playing the same trashy desperate role for twenty something years should be boring to her her person. Brooke needs to retire, she is a slott!!!!! and does not represent modern strong woman. she is too desperate.

  41. Keep Steffy for God sake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  42. They are doing the right thing by letting go of Taylor: first of all I am sick of her trying to shrink everybody but her damn self, she is NO better than Brooke have yall forgotten how much of a HOE she was/is, lied to ridge about Thomas being his son and he was suppose to be Thornes, she ran off with him to St. Thomas, turn around she gets kidnapped and is a princess while Brooke raised and loved her kids, came home being an ungrateful bitch all because she loves to hate Brooke, let's not forget her sleeping with Rick knowing her daughter was fucking him but it's okay for Taylor to be labeled the good witch.. Now Steffy hike that bitch toodles to her slut bucket ass she is NO better than Brooke and her mother, She went after Oliver wasn't him and Hope together, She slept with Bill isn't he married to Katie, she slept with Rick while her twin Pheobie was dating him, Then she start pursuing Liam. If you a true soap fan you would KNOW that Brookes role was ALWAYS casted as such character NEVER tried to hide hers Taylor and Steffy roles are casted around Brooke and Hope... LET THEM WHORES GO!!!! Hope and Liam I wouldn't put them together I would put hope with Wyatt and let Liam undecided can't think or breathe for himself ass get everything he dished out on Hope and Steffy.

  45. Please don't let Steffy go. If she leaves I'm leaving watching the show also. Her character does so much for the show. the only reason I watch the show is to see Steffy and Liam finally get together and remain together. If we lose Steffy, you lose me also.

  49. Brooke has either married or been to bed with every male character on the show...she went through the Forrester men. How can any one appreciate her character.

  52. Liam is so wishy-washy between the two women, he doesn't deserve to be with either one of them. They both deserve someone better who can fully commit. The writers have turned him into a wimp.

  55. i sure hope jmw makes her way back to the b&b to kick some ass on this boring logan show.
    two brothers fighting over hope is pitiful. i have the feeling the steffy marriage contract is
    not signed and liams lieing to hope.
    im sure once the marriage starts steffys going to show up to cancel it with a unsigned contract in her hand and wyatt at her side smiling at liam.

    that would be great for the show and would make a enormous amount of money and
    ratings for the bell network.

    lets hope thats whats going to happen . kick start up this logan show and make something
    worth tuning in again,.

  56. Can't stand that Wyatt; his mouth is a mess. Gets on my damn nerves. The show really does need Steffy. Hope she's really coming back. And soon. Happy to see the end of that Taylor. Got on my nerves too. Love Brooke and Bill together. That Katie is too damn vindictive anyway. But we definitely need another hot woman to counteract that Hope because she is getting too damn cocky.
