Phoebe's Twin Finally Resurfaces

And she's not played by Mackenzie Mauzy, who plays Phoebe on The Bold and the Beautiful. Hmmm, does this mean Mauzy is gone for good, or will they just make them fraternal twins? Either way, we welcome the Canadian actress Jacqueline MacInnes Wood to daytime!

From a press release: The character of Steffy, the daughter of Dr. Taylor Hayes (played by Hunter Tylo) and Ridge Forrester (played by Ronn Moss), was last seen on canvas in January 2006, as she left for college in London. “Steffy” returns when Ridge calls her home to ask for her support with the family business, Forrester Creations.

MacInnes Wood’s first tape date is May 2, 2008. Her first airdate is scheduled for Wednesday, June 4, 2008.

Born and raised in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, MacInnes Wood moved to Toronto at age 18 to pursue her dream of becoming an actress. Her first job, as “The Hair Girl” in a First Choice Hair Cutter’s national commercial, continues to play to this day. Soon after, she landed the job of host on the global series, Gamer Girlz. MacInnes Wood then enlisted in acting classes at Ryerson University, Centre for the Arts and the Armstrong Acting Studio. In 2007, she appeared as “Faith the Model” in Paul Reiser’s TBS micro-series, Lovebites, and in the new series M.V.P., the Disney pilot, Skyrunners, as well as a lead role in the Hallmark movie, Room at the end of the Hall, which is scheduled to air in the near future.
