The actress name is Ashleigh Olden and she did play Danielle Jorgensen for a good while there from 2001-02. She was kind of brief replacement for Rianna’s character if I recall right. See the link below:
Definitely true with her. Debbi Morgan. Eva La Rue. Josh Duhamel. Amanda Seyfried to a much lesser extent.
Michael Nader, John Callahan ... David Canary ... (RIP) lots of actors and actresses who had fame back in the day when fame meant people actually knew you and you were a household name ... it's all likely helped keep the show relevant.
And I think it helps too that the show isn't seen as 'tarnished'. Even though we had some YIKES years ... it's legacy is pretty good. It's such a special show. Thank you Agnes Nixon.
Does anyone know who played the character of Danielle in the late 2001/2002 era? She started out having a thing with JT but then moved on to Billy when he & Mack broke up. She's nowhere to be found on rolling credits and I am curious as to who played her.
I don't know for everyone but I think I heard Deidre has a 2 day week guarantee and Drake has a 1.5 a week one. I think at their 90's peak they had 3 but were just paid to be used more. I think this was especially true for Eileen.
RSW, Isabel Durant, PT, AZ, Lindsey Arnold, CB, and GG lead the episode count YTD. BB, NB, and EOB are only a few episodes behind them, so they are probably closer to 2.5/3 days a week. But I am sure it's more cost effective to use LA 4 days a week than Dee.
I can't imagine anyone would have more than a 3 day guarantee, even KA, but she was on a lot doing nothing mostly.
