Wendy Moniz finally returns to Daytime! She rocked it as Dinah on GL

The early exit of Robin Strasser from ONE LIFE TO LIVE means that Llanview will be in need of a new mayor when Dorian leaves town... so the soap has cast GUIDING LIGHT alumna Wendy Moniz (Dinah) in the recurring role of Mayor Finn.

Since exiting GL in 1999, Moniz has had recurring roles on primetime series such as DAMAGES, NASH BRIDGES, BIG SHOTS and THE GUARDIAN. Look for the actress -- who is married to fellow GL alum Frank Grillo (Hart) -- to make her OLTL debut in September.

She was good when Dinah was a bitch, but the rest of the time she struggled, to put it kindly, and was a big factor in the show's huge ratings woes in mid/late 1996.

Is she supposed to be involved with John?

Yes, Antoyne. Way back before we even knew what an Alicia Minshew was, I thought Wendy would make for a great Kendall.

Oh man! This is like a Sharon Gabet as Melinda thing, ships passing in the night, Wendy and Robin would have been great longterm scene partners! She has that dark, Cramer woman look, before it got all bleached out again. In a different time and place, Wendy could have been a Blair, a Cassie, or a Kelly.

    • Anyone on this forum old enough to remember AW pre-Lemay Christmas day episodes?   If so, please tell us what you remember . . .
    • I am literally at that point right now in my edit binge.  I loved Maison Blanche then, and I still appreciate it now.  But I have to say, the changes that I remembered being in the Posession storyline actually begin here. I get Roman being distracted and angry.  But his stubborn refusal to recognize Marlena and John are in danger, and also that she would never call him to tell him they were having a wonderful time together.  It’s an early beat of someone has to be dramatically stupid to drag the plot out.  Jennifer also has to loose some of her brain for Peter’s antics to last as long as they do.  Although who wouldn’t be distracted by Peter Blake.   Also- the first hints of Father John, and Drake develops what I think of as his “John Black” persona while chained in that dungeon.  Gone are the charming smiles and somewhat Roman-esq personality.  He is now a man without a past and he is growly and serious about it.  I have to admit I find him incredibly hot with all this angst during Maison Blanche.  It is also noticeable how much everyone has started talking about God in a much more significant and meaningful way all of a sudden. The Gina/Hope reveals are are awesome as the first time.  There are two shocks from the 1990’s that I got to see before any soap mags spoiled me- one was the Hope reveal, and the other was clink/boom on GH.  My soap mag purchases were spotty back then, so both of these were genuine surprises. And Stefano never had a better scene partners than Celeste.  They are so much fun together and I loved her right away back then, now it makes me miss her so much.  She really hates Marlena right now. He certainly was attractive!
    • Love Jackee!! Wish the promo was longer. I was going to check on peacock to see if they didn't have any promos.
