Ivy Forrester hasn’t been on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL for years so it’s understandable if newer viewers don’t know who she is. And if you’re a longtime fan who just needs a refresher, we’ve got you covered! The character debuted in July 2014 played by Australian actress Ashleigh Brewer until her exit from B&B in 2018.
Ivy is Eric Forrester‘s niece and was brought to Los Angeles by Eric and Rick to work on the new jewelry collection to replace Quinn Fuller. She began working closely with Wyatt Fuller and befriended her cousin, Aly Forrester. While on a business trip in Paris, Quinn used Ivy to interfere with Liam Spencer‘s plans to marry Hope by pushing her into a river! Liam dove in to save Ivy, who urged him to hurry to his wedding but it was too late. Hope married Wyatt instead, and Liam found comfort with Ivy.
As Liam grew closer to Ivy, it sparked a rivalry with Hope. But even after Quinn’s interference in Paris was exposed, Liam decided to remain with Ivy. When Steffy Forrester returned she immediately tried to get Liam back, but he again opted for Ivy. After learning that her papers had been filled out wrong and she would be deported, Ivy worried she’d lose her new life, but Quinn stepped in and helped Liam marry her so she could stay in the country. Although they’d put on a show for INS, once Ivy’s dual citizenship was confirmed, she reluctantly told Liam and they annulled their short-lived marriage. She then moved on by getting close to Wyatt.
Although Steffy claimed Aly had fallen and hit her head on a rock, causing her death, Ivy had video footage of her hitting Aly with a tire iron. She wanted justice for her friend, but Wyatt insisted on protecting Steffy. She used the video to blackmail her way into becoming the new Face of Forrester, but that ultimately backfired as Steffy fired her from the company. Ivy and Wyatt’s relationship with threatened when Thomas Forrester saved Ivy’s life from a falling spotlight and became smitten with her. After Ivy finally gave in and made out with Thomas, Steffy told Wyatt, who was crushed. During a fight with Steffy backstage at Forrester, Ivy was pushed into an electrical panel and nearly electrocuted!
Ivy had a restraining order drawn up against Steffy and reconciled with Wyatt, though she began having feelings for Liam again. When Wyatt proposed, Quinn revealed Ivy was still in love with Liam, so he called it off. As Ivy was packing to return to Australia, she had another argument with Steffy and in the struggle fell down the stairs! Thankfully, Ivy recovered and flew home to Australia, leaving the Forresters and their drama behind.
