Put me down for a Kristy McNichol and Sharon Gless. I wouldn't see them as leading ladies, but as supporting characters - probably a cop or restaurant owner. Something butch and hardened. 


I would've loved for Pamela Sue Martin (ex-Fallon, Dynasty) to pop up on *anything* while she was still a bit younger.

Younger Kristy McNichol on a Bill Bell show?  So great.  Or the Curlee era of Guiding Light as she was older.  She was always so good at emotional storytelling, grit and also sophistication beyond her years.


Jaclyn Smith I can also see being successful on  Bill Bell show.

I could either see her as a recast Simone Hardy on #GH or head of a rival fashion house on Bold too. 


More suggestions 

Nancy McKeon - Could've saw her on a P&G or a ABC/Nixon soap 

Lisa Whelchel - SAME as Nancy 

Telma Hopkins - On a Bell Soap 

Rider Strong - I could've saw him on GH in the 90's with Jonathan Jackson, Amber Tamblyn etc... or ATWT 

Shannen Doherty - I know she auditioned for a soap. I could've saw her on DAYS, A P&G soap or a Nixon one too.
