Jacqueline MacInnes Wood has appeared on approximately two dozen episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful so far.
She recently spoke to Soap Opera Digest about the experience. Here are excerpts of the interview:
Digest: How did your The Bold and the Beautiful job come about?
MacInnes Wood: I'm from Canada and I was living in Toronto when I booked a Disney pilot a few months prior, so that got me an agent in L.A. The pilot didn't go, but I moved here, unpacked and I was here less than a week when I went to The Bold and the Beautiful.
Digest: That must've been a little daunting for you?
MacInnes Wood: Oh, it was! I didn't even know my way around yet when I drove over to CBS. It was insane. Plus, I didn't know I was going to read for Taylor's daughter.
Digest: Had you watched The Bold and the Beautiful before?
MacInnes Wood: Oh, yeah. Everybody at my school knew Ridge, Taylor Brooke and Stephanie.
Digest: So, the audition must've went well?
MacInnes Wood: I thought I did a solid job and it was my first audition ever in L.A., so I didn't think I would ever get a callback. But when I drove home, they called and said they wanted to see me the next day to meet with [Executive Producer/Head Writer] Brad Bell. I went and there were other people in his office this time when I did the audition again. Then I heard I got the part. They said they didn't even want to do a screen test, but the network wanted a screen test, so that's when I met Texas [Battle, Marcus] for the first time. I finally got the part, then it was a chore getting my visa [sighs].
