What Happened to Ridge Forrester on The Bold & The Beautiful

Ridge Forrester has been through a lot of ups and downs on The Bold & The Beautiful (including being tossed out of a helicopter!) so despite all the trouble that comes his way, the guy is definitely not one to give up. The character was introduced when B&B first premiered in March of 1987 and was played by actor Ronn Moss up until 2012 (with a brief fill-in from Lane Davies in 1992). Ridge returned to the canvas in 2013 with Thorsten Kaye taking over the role, and he is still playing it today. The oldest of Eric and Stephanie Forrester’s children, Ridge was also a talented designer and a major part of the family business, Forrester Creations. He fell in love with Caroline Spencer, but just before the wedding, she found out he’d had a last-minute fling and broke up with him. As she married his brother, Thorne, Ridge fell for Brooke Logan.

Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Looks Back on 10 Years as Steffy on The Bold & The Beautiful (Exclusive)

Actress Jacqueline MacInnes Wood will never forget where she was when she got the call back in 2008 that she’d landed the role of Steffy Forrester on The Bold & The Beautiful. “I was in the changing room at Victoria’s Secret at The Grove [an L.A. shopping mall],” she revealed to Soaps In Depth. “I was a screaming, squealing girl in a dressing room!” The news meant Wood would need to hustle back to her native Canada in order to get her work-visa paperwork lined up to start the job in less than a week. A whirlwind, to be sure, but by the time she was back in Los Angeles for her first day on set, she was feeling calm, confident and totally in control. “I was nervous but not as much as you’d think,” she admitted. “What made me most nervous was the fact that my first scenes were with [Hunter Tylo’s] Taylor and [Ronn Moss’] Ridge.
