Quinn Fuller is portrayed by General Hospital alumna and Emmy winner Rena Sofer. She plays the mother of Wyatt Spencer and is described as being "just as mysterious as her son" and "both will have secrets that can rock the entire soap." Sofer began taping on May 22 and made her debut on July 12.
Quinn Fuller is the mother of Wyatt and owns a jewelry designer warehouse, Quinn Artisan Jewelers, in Los Angeles. When Hope Logan notices a sword necklace pendant Wyatt always wears looked eerily identical to the ones that Bill Spencer, Jr. and his son Liam always wear, she asked Wyatt where he got it from. He tells her that it was one of his mother's original designs and years ago he discovered it in a vault until she had decided to give to him. Wyatt later introduces Hope and his mother at Quinn Artisan Jewelers. Hope asks Quinn about the sword necklace, to which Quinn claims that she did indeed design the pendant, but possibly another jewelry designer had made a similar design to that certain sword, which is why Bill and Liam also wear the same sword necklace. Quinn becomes very uncomfortable with Hope's questions about the sword necklace and the Spencers. After Hope leaves Quinn tells Wyatt she is not right for him because of her high society family but Wyatt disagrees and continues to pursue Hope. Hope and Wyatt become friends and Hope arranges for Quinn and Wyatt to have lunch at a restaurant at the same time when Bill and Liam are there. Bill immediately recognizes Quinn and she reveals that Bill is Wyatt's father. Bill and Wyatt are furious with Quinn for hiding the truth about Wyatt's paternity. Bill and Liam reach out to Wyatt but he wants nothing to do with them but eventually opens up to his father and half-brother. Bill notices that Wyatt has inherited many of the Spencer traits and similarities with Bill, making Liam very jealous especially when Wyatt takes an interest in Hope. When Bill leaves his wife Katie Logan for her sister Brooke Logan, Wyatt hears Katie's story and immediately confronts Bill becoming physical when expressing his disapproval and Bill disowns Wyatt. Wyatt returns to his mother and Quinn Artisan Jewelers where Quinn is overjoyed to have Wyatt back and sees the positive changes in him since he met Hope but she is furious at Bill for disowning Wyatt.
Brooke encourages Bill and Wyatt to see the situation from the other's perspective. Caroline tells Bill he's treating Wyatt the same way Bill Spencer Sr. treated Bill. Bill eventually accepts Wyatt again and they start to establish a father-son relationship. Wyatt and Liam continue their rivalry for the affections of Hope, who hires Quinn Artisan Jewelers to supply her newly rebranded Hope For The Future line at Forrester Creations. Quinn and Wyatt are thrilled at the opportunity to work with Forrester Creations and their company becomes internationally famous and profits enormously with the success of Hope's line. During this time Quinn begins a flirtation with Eric Forrester and secretly sends Hope a tribute video Liam made for his ex-wife Steffy Forrester which cause Hope to call off her engagement to Liam and become closer to Wyatt. Liam discovers it was Quinn who sent the video to Hope and confronts her but Quinn blames Liam for making the video and hiding it from Hope. Quinn then begins a rivalry with Donna Logan, Eric's ex-wife, both wanting Eric Forrester. However she soon starts a flirtation with Bill, who is still in love with Brooke Logan, Hope's mother. On the day of Brooke's wedding to Ridge Forrester, Bill becomes drunk and resulting in Quinn and him sleeping together. Quinn then begins a physical relationship with Deacon Sharpe, which eventually turns romantic. When Deacon proposes, Quinn begins to experience difficulties with Brooke over her objection to Quinn's involvement with Deacon. Despite Brooke's numerous attempts to split them apart, including calling upon Hope, Quinn marries Deacon at the Forrester beach house. Months later Quinn tells Wyatt that she and Deacon are separated because their marriage was doomed from the beginning since he's not a Spencer man, the only ones who have ever been able to truly capture her heart. Wyatt peppers her with questions and she says Deacon is a good man and that he went to Europe.
Quinn is later overjoyed to learn Liam and Steffy are done and tries to make sure Liam is truly done with Steffy. Liam faints from a concussion he previously suffered and Quinn drags him to his car and drives him to her remote cabin home to keep him away from Steffy. Over time, he comes to and, in order to keep him feeling safe, tells him they are a married couple named Adam and Eve Smith. While masquerading as his wife, Quinn truly opens up and falls in love with him while using his phone to further sabotage his relationship with Steffy. Deacon learns her secret and she enlists his silence and assistance. Upon learning that Wyatt and Steffy are engaged, Quinn becomes determined to keep Liam away from Steffy by throwing him off a cliff. She chooses not to in the moment and, when Deacon asks why, she pushes him off the cliff to keep Liam for herself.
As Liam begins to remember, Quinn decides to quit her job at Forrester and go away with Liam, but is left conflicted when Wyatt and Steffy move their wedding forward and she begins to worry Liam will no longer love her when he remembers their true history. Wyatt and Steffy marry on April Fool's Day in 2016, and a short time later, Wyatt finds Quinn and Liam together in the cabin. Liam begins to remember who he is and goes home with Wyatt after they lock Quinn in a cupboard. Deacon comes back and gets Quinn out of the cupboard. Quinn is eventually arrested for kidnapping Liam, but he drops the case against her after realising that he has no case.
Quinn claims that her experience with Liam has changed her (as she opened up to him about being rejected as a child by her parents) and begins to secretly romance Steffy's grandfather Eric, despite Steffy warning Quinn to stay away from her family. Eric and Quinn's relationship progresses and they eventually tell their families, with Eric's children and grandchildren objecting. Eric ends things with Quinn after Steffy issues him with an ultimatum. However, when Eric, Steffy, Liam and Wyatt go on a business trip to Monte Carlo, Quinn follows them there and resumes her relationship with Eric. Steffy catches them kissing outside a hotel, and follows her (not knowing who it is) and is shocked to find out that it is Quinn. Steffy slaps Quinn to the ground and warns her to stay away from Eric. Everyone returns to L.A., and despite objections from his family, Eric continues to romance Quinn. He asks Quinn to move in with him and they plan to get married. Thorne and Felicia come from Paris for the wedding, but Ridge and Steffy convince Wyatt and the Forresters to boycott the wedding in the hopes that Eric leaves Quinn. However, they get married, with Ivy being the only guest at the wedding.
After the wedding boycott, Eric confronts Ridge, Rick, Steffy, Thomas and Zende, and collapses in the CEO office. He is taken to hospital and it is revealed that he suffered a brain aneurysm as a result of stress and an underlying medical condition. He is in a coma for a short period of time before recovering and returning home. During this time, Ridge lies to his family and pretends to have Eric's power of attorney, kicking Quinn out of the family and the Forrester estate. When Eric wakes up from the coma, he reveals that Quinn has power of attorney and kicks Ridge out of the mansion and fires him as CEO, appointing Quinn as interim CEO in his absence. Quinn leads a successful fashion show as interim CEO, and later convinces Eric to give the CEO position to Steffy in an attempt to reunite Wyatt and Steffy (who had gone back to Liam).
Shades of the old Quinn return when she has a fantasy in which she murders her new neighbour, and rival for Eric's affections, Katie. Quinn then begins to develop feelings for Ridge after he sees her naked and takes care of her when she injures her ankle. Quinn and Ridge attempt to keep their feelings secret but are exposed when Eric's ex-wife Sheila Carter returns to town and learns of their affair. Sheila tells Eric in an attempt to manipulate him into divorcing Quinn. While Quinn and Ridge end their affair, Sheila continues to reinsert herself into Eric's life, manipulating Eric to let her stay in the Forrester mansion after a fight with Quinn; ultimately, Quinn exposes Sheila's schemes and Eric sends her packing.
After a period of domestic bliss, Quinn's friend Shauna Fulton arrives in Los Angeles. When Quinn discovers Shauna's attraction to Ridge, she pushes Shauna to act on it to get back at Brooke.
