Blast From The Past: Can You Guess Who This Soap Star Is?

She’s bold and she’s beautiful and she’s certainly forever young and restless. She’s also been in both the daytime and prime time television industries long enough to know all of the ins and outs and of course, tricks of the trade. So who is it that we are talking about in this blast from the past? Keep reading below to find out more!

Blast From The Past: Can You Guess Who This Soap Star Is?

Our mysterious daytime television star today is none other than Days of Our Lives’ Leann Hunley. The actress got to play Lisa on Who’s The Boss back in 1989.

Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Leann opened up about the experience. She said, “I worked with Tony Danza on that. I played a ski instructor, and I was not a good skier. I will say this: that was acting, because I had to look like I knew what to do and tell other people how to ski. It was shot on white carpet with fake snow on it. It looked real, but it was a studio stage. That was a lot of fun, and I loved Tony. Tony is great. Because my scene was set on a ski hill with just Tony, I didn’t really work with ‘the family’ as such, but that being said, it was a lovely set. Ultimately I did another series with Tony, HUDSON STREET.”

Leann Was Also On Murder She Wrote

But that wasn’t the only primetime show that Leann got to work on. She also got to play several different characters on Murder She Wrote back during the late eighties and early nineties. Recalling that time in her life, she said, “I worked with Angela [Lansbury] two out of the three times I was there. I’ve always described her as the one I admire in this business. Every week she had to make eight new people feel comfortable on set and work with eight new actors, because there were so many guest stars. She made us all feel part of the whole show and also comfortable in the working environment. She liked to rehearse. I really admired her.”
