    The Bold and the Beautiful Backtracks: Jessica Forrester

    Friday, December 14 2007


    Jessica Forrester (CBS)
    Soaps.com readers who watched B&B in the mid-nineties will remember when Jessica Forrester (Maitland Ward) was in town! Jessica is Eric's (John McCook) niece, the daughter of his brother John and mother Maggie (Barbara Crampton). The character appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful from 1994 through 1996. She came to L.A. to live with Stephanie during her parent's divorce.

    While Jessica lived in Los Angeles she fell for hottie Forrester intern Dylan Shaw (Dylan Neal). But when Eric found out about the romance, he had Dylan charged with statutory rape for his dalliance with the seventeen year old! He was found not guilty, but stopped seeing Jessica for a period of time. Next, Jessica's mother arrived in town and started dating Dylan - unaware of his connection to her daughter! Maggie broke things off when she found out that Jessica was in love with him. At one point, Lauren offered to pay Dylan for sex as a test of his loyalty to Jessica! While apart from Dylan, Jessica became involved with Sly Donovan (Brent Jasmer), who figured he would get her pregnant and score himself some Forrester funds! When she blew him off and returned to bliss with true love Dylan, Jessica suffered a rape at the hands of a vengeful Sly. She told only her mother the truth, and left to study in London (where she still resides today).


    Maitland Ward (White Chicks/Columbia Pictures)
    Jessica Forrester was portrayed by actress Maitland Ward, who has definitely kept busy since leaving the show! After saying good-bye to B&B, the beautiful Maitland landed the plum role of Rachel McGuire on “Boy Meets World,” a popular teen television program. She stayed there from 1998 - 2000 and to this day is best known for that role. Since 2000, she has had guest stints on television shows such as “Boston Public” and also appeared in the feature film “White Chicks” in 2004! Recently she has done stints on “Out of Practice” and “Rules of Engagement!”

    Soaps.com would like to congratulate Maitland on her continued success in the entertainment business. Who knows, maybe this attractive Forrester female will return to B&B someday and Maitland will grace our screens again!

    Look's like the big "Storm" has come to town with a blizzard. I bet Storm Shot Frosty.
