Contrary to reports published elsewhere, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy) is not leaving THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL.
"Jacqueline MacInnes Wood is taking a short break, as she has done in the past, from B&B," says a spokesperson for the 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."
In fact, the actress is due in the studio later this week to tape scenes. We have no details about exactly how long her break will be, but it isn't a permanent one!
