The last Destination movie, in 2009, was billed as the final one. Fortunately the producers were lying, because the new film, Final Destination 5, stars Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, the hottest thing to come out of Canada since maple syrup

What is Final Destination 5 all about?

It’s about a group of people on their way to a work retreat. They cheat death after a bridge collapses. From there it’s pretty much about how many different ways these people can die.

In the theatrical trailer you’re getting laser eye surgery…

That’s actually one of my fears in real life, too. When we shot the scene, they had to numb my eye. We shot from 6pm to 10am, and they kept numbing my eye and putting the speculum in. But ultimately I had a great time. I loved the challenge.

Besides dying in a creative way in that movie, you also play Steffy Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful, our favourite afternoon TV show.

Steffy Forrester is the vixen. I really love being on the show. It’s completely different from this movie, where we shot 120 pages in four months. On a soap you shoot 100 pages a day. We do eight to 11 episodes in four days.

We read that between all this shooting you practice capoeira, the Brazilian school of dancing/fighting.

I can totally break-dance/fight! Maybe I’m a green belt. Is that good? Break-dance, pop and lock… I can do a pretty badarse robot as well.

What is your most embarrassing moment?

I went out to a club one night, and I was wearing this little bra insert. I did a dance move, and I was totally going into a windmill… and it came out while I was dancing. But the good thing about me is
that stuff like that doesn’t faze me. I’m clumsy – I’m going to make mistakes. I just laugh at myself. It’s normal.

What’s a special skill you possess that nobody knows you have?

I’m amazing at video games. Fighting games like Tekken or any kind of racing game… or World of Warcraft! I can get in there and just rock it.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Eating salt-and-vinegar chips and watching late-night infomercials.
