Having been bested by Steffy in the "Who Will Win Liam?" competition, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Ivy has found a none-too-shabby consolation prize in his brother, Wyatt. And after what she's been through this summer, she deserves it, notes her portrayer, Ashleigh Brewer!

"It definitely got to the point where I'd read the script and my heart would break for her a little bit," says the actress of her alter ego's rough go of things with Liam, who, in the eyes of many fans, disrespected the brunette by tossing her aside in favor of her overtly sexy cousin. "Even as an actor, it's upsetting when a relationship like that ends," adds Pearce. "You build a nice, solid working relationship with a co-star, and then you're like, 'Awww — we're not going to be working with each other as much!'"

Soaps In Depth recently caught up with Brewer to chat about what makes Ivy different from the other "Forresters" on the show, and whether or not the jewelry maker might ever rethink her insistence on taking the high road in life. We've got it all in the latest issue, on-sale now!
