Remote Control: Rewind … Guiding Light’s Lenz Has the Right Focus

From “The Rustle of the Sheets”

Republisher’s Note: This is the full text of the article as it appeared on the website including photos. I have not yet double checked the text. I did bold the names for Joie Lenz (now credited as Bethany Joy Lenz), Paul Anthony Stewart, Rebecca Budig where they appear and I corrected a couple of obvious typos. I also bolded a sentence I agree with whole heartedly. I agree so much they might have been quoting me. It’s just bang on correct. The website credits it to the December 15, 1998 issue of Soap Opera Magazine.

“Remote Control: Rewind … Guiding Light‘s Lenz Has the Right Focus” — 12/15/98

Paul Anthony Stewart and Joie Lenz Since Joie Lenz made a huge splash as teenage clone Reva this summer, we were hardly surprised when Guiding Light decided to put Lenz in the role of Michelle when Rebecca Budig left in the fall. But even we couldn’t have predicted how quickly she’d get up to speed.

In only weeks she’s made the role her own and then some. Suddenly, the used-to-be-too-good-to-be-true Michelle is now a spunkier rendition of the former incarnation, and we’re delighted with the change. As an added bonus, Lenz can more than hold her own opposite daytime vet Paul Anthony Stewart, who recently signed on as Danny Santos. So where does this leave Michelle’s longtime love, Jesse?

Probably caught in the middle of a four-way tug-of-war (don’t forget about the ever-scheming Drew). And we can’t wait to see who winds up with whom.
