The two-time Daytime Emmy nominee took to Facebook to dispel rumors that she's headed back to the CBS soap.
"As much as I love The Bold and The Beautiful and still wanted to be a part of it. Unfortunately we weren't on the same page contractually/scheduling etc," Wood shared on her Facebook page. "These things happen in this industry and I hope all my fans can understand that. I am a huge supporter of Brad Bell and the entire cast and crew. Love and kisses to all of my fans. I really do care about you all."
Wood's statement comes as fans continue to speculate about a very vague casting call that was released in early October, seeking a "sophisticated, worldly, [and] confident" Caucasian female.
Wood later followed up her initial message with a glimmer of hope for fans.
"Hey! If characters can be recast, shot, fall down elevator shafts and come back to life months/years later lol then never say never. XOXO Love u all and will DEFINITELY keep u posted on future projects," she added.
In May 2013, B&B announced that Wood was "taking a short break, as she has done in the past."
Wood made her daytime debut on B&B as Steffy Forrester in 2008. She's received two consecutive Daytime Emmy nominations in the Outstanding Younger Actress field.
