Stephanie "Steffy" Forrester (formerly Spencer) is a fictional character on the American CBS soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful. The character is currently played by Canadian actress Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, who joined the cast on June 4, 2008.
Born in 1989, Steffy is the elder twin by a few minutes to sister, Phoebe. When she was two years old, her parents took her on a trip to St. Thomas where they renewed their wedding vows, in front of her, her sister and brother Thomas. While there, Steffy fell off a boat and was presumed to have been eaten by a shark. Fortunately she survived, only to be kidnapped by Morgan DeWitt who was obsessed with Ridge. Steffy’s mother, Taylor grew suspicious of Morgan and happily discovered her daughter alive and well in Morgan’s home. Morgan prevented Taylor from leaving with Steffy and held her captive in her basement. However, Ridge figured things out and eventually saved his wife and daughter.Since then Steffy has sporadically appeared on-screen while rapidly aging in the process. She left Los Angeles to attend school in London, England, but returned home in 2008 at her father’s request. Ridge offered her a job in management at Forrester Creations, but she opted to learn the ropes from the ground floor and took a job in the Shipping and Receiving Department (SRD) instead. Steffy is very close to her mother Taylor Hayes (Forrester), brother Thomas Forrester, Step-Grandfather Eric Forrester, Grandmother-Stephanie Forrester, and especially twin sister Phoebe Forrester.
While working at Forrester, Steffy befriended Marcus Barber who had also recently begun working there. She eventually learned his secret that he was really Donna Logan’s son, but agreed to keep quiet until he and Donna were ready to announce it. Unfortunately, the family found out and exposed the secret, but Donna’s husband and Steffy’s grandfather, Eric accepted the news in stride and welcomed Marcus to the family. Steffy was relieved, but Ridge Forrester (Steffy's father) was still disdainful of Marcus and warned his daughter away from the young man. However, Steffy didn’t listen and continued to date Marcus.
Despite Ridge’s contempt and their divided loyalties when Donna was granted power of attorney instead of a Forrester during Eric’s coma, Marcus and Steffy fell in love. Ridge eventually came around to accepting Steffy’s boyfriend when Marcus was the one to figure out that Eric’s coma was a result of being poisoned.
Steffy then became set on reuniting her parents. She talked to Ridge and Taylor separately trying to remind them of the happy times when they were a family. Ridge explained that their time together had passed, but Taylor was a little more receptive. Taylor decided she did indeed want Ridge back and enlisted Steffy and Thomas to convince Ridge to return to the fold. Despite their best efforts, Ridge remained devoted to Brooke Logan.
When Forrester Creations is having trouble When Bill Spencer takes over the company, Steffy tries to seduce Bill Spencer to win the company back. Steffy makes sure that the new Forrester Creations will exclude the infamous Logan sisters
(Brooke, Donna, and Katie).
Rick Forrester, son of Brooke and Eric, and Phoebe's boyfriend kissed Steffy and slept with Steffy and Phoebe's mother Taylor, because Taylor was an alcoholic at the time, and got in crazy relationships. When Phoebe found this out, she was devastated and yelled at Rick, even to the car. In the car, Phoebe in the passenger seat, was distracting him, angrily, and the car crashed and Phoebe died. Steffy and Phoebe's father Ridge, who never liked Rick in the first place, found out, and was sad and furious. Months later Steffy and Rick felt close and got in a relationship. They both loved Phoebe and when Ridge found this out the Rick and Ridge rivalry began. Ridge was mad for Rick hurting and killing Phoebe and now might hurt Steffy. Steffy's Grandmother Stephanie found out, and was furious at Rick, stating he's been with practically everybody. Rick even proposed, but they never got married and their relationship ended shortly. Even Steffy's brother Thomas tried to burn Rick's house, and then Rick's car blew up strangely.
Steffy then had a rivalry with Brooke's daughter Hope Logan because

At a pool party, Brooke and Oliver had sex, Brooke thinking he was Ridge, and Oliver thinking she was Hope. At Hope's graduation party, Steffy has a tape and exposes this scandal. Steffy was actually manipulated by Bill Spencer's son Liam Spencer, and she forgives him. They develop deep feelings for each other, and Steffy takes an extended business trip to Paris, France before their marriage. While Steffy's gone, Liam moves onto a relationship with Hope Logan, who insists on getting married, this is Steffy's 2nd love triangle again with Hope Logan.

Steffy told him she couldn't have kids anymore, and, despite his pleas, to leave. Liam, realizing that this is truly the end for him and Steffy, goes back to the United States. Steffy, feeling horrible over what she has done to Liam, cries.
