The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers has some fun behind-the-scenes information to share from a popular B&B star. Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, who portrays Steffy Forrester on the CBS soap, recently opened up about her life as an actress on the show, and she shared some tidbits about her experiences and habits behind the scenes.
In the interview, which was done for CBS Soaps-In-Depth, Jacqueline reported that there is simply no backstage fighting or drama among the cast, which is great to hear. “We’re always laughing,” Jacqueline said. “There’s so much drama in what we film, but there’s not in real life.”
Jacqueline continued: “Everyone’s always trying to find out some sort of dirt about us, which one’s a diva or who’s always late, but we don’t have any of that. We’re all really lucky that we get to have a ton of chuckles.”
And when it is time for the on-screen drama, Jacqueline reported that it takes some effort. When asked about doing a slapping scene, Jacqueline said: “It’s not hard. I love those kinds of scenes. It’s like dancing. You have to learn the choreography. Yeah, it can be challenging, but once you get it, it’s fun and easy.”
And what about other kinds of drama – like a kissing scene? Jacqueline quipped, “Well, if it’s Scott, then I just want to have ribs and garlic, to mess with him. Otherwise, just some breath mints.” Of course, Jacqueline is talking about her co-star Scott Clifton, who portrays Liam Spencer, with whom she gets along well.
Then there are times when Jacqueline has to get super emotional and cry on cue. B&B viewers will remember the emotional scenes that Jacqueline did when she learned that her adopted daughter was actually Beth Spencer (River Davidson and Madeline Valdez), the daughter of Liam and Hope Logan (Annika Noelle).
How did Jacqueline manage to cry on demand for scenes like that? “I put myself in the situation and think about the scenario,” Jacqueline said. “Just imagining losing a loved one, it pulls on my heartstrings. So being really present in them is what works for me.”
Finally, Jacqueline was asked about her dressing room, and whether she’s anything unique or interesting stashed in there. “No,” Jacqueline said. “To be honest, I treat the hair and makeup room more like my dressing room. I’m always hanging out there. I think people would be surprised to find out that I have a dog in my dressing room.”
Of course, if you follow Jacqueline on Instagram, then you’ve probably seen photos of her beloved pitbull, Ja’mie, on her feed. It sounds like Ja’mie is a fixture behind the scenes on B&B!
