The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Explains Steffy’s Fast Addiction, ‘It Happens Very Quickly’
The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers reveal that on-screen, it looked like Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) got addicted in just a few days. However, Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) said it had been weeks. Now, Woods is explaining Steffy’s fast addiction. When doing her research, she learned that for some people, addiction can happen extremely quickly.
It’s Been Weeks, Not Days
B&B spoilers reveal that it seems like it has only been a few days and suddenly, Steffy is a full-blown, knife-wielding addict. However, Liam briefly mentioned during the intervention that she’s been like this for weeks, indicating it’s been much longer. Now, she is in rehab but will be out next week. Rehabs are usually 30 days, not just a week. So, the pace of this storyline is definitely faster in the soap universe than in real-life time.
B&B Spoilers: Fast Addiction Does Happen
Even though it’s been weeks, it still seems like this addiction happened very quickly. Wood also thought the same thing until she did her research and talked to real people who have been through this. The actress told Soap Opera Digest,
“Hearing other people’s stories and learning more about it, I found that this kind of addiction does happen quickly. Initially, in my mind, it was like, ‘Doesn’t this take a year, or at least a few months?’ And it was like, ‘No. This happens very quickly for a lot of people.’”
Jacqueline MacInnes Wood’s Research
The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers reveal that Wood did a lot of research and talked to people who have actually gone through this. She also mentioned that she could not have done such a good job with this storyline without the help of her co-stars. She specifically mentioned Thorsten Kaye, who plays Steffy’s father, Ridge Forrester.
