Where Are They Now ~ All Star Soap Star, Linda Dano on QVC

User Rating: / 4

Linda Dano (ex Rae, One Life to Live)Emmy Award winning actress, soap star, talk-show host, designer, author and women's health advocate, fan favorite Linda Dano has a new entrepreneurial endeavor -- The Linda Dano Home Collection for QVC. All her other accomplishments aside, it turns out that design has always been her very first love!

"In High School, I wasn't on stage as an actor, I was designing and painting the scenery," says Dano. A few lucky breaks in California led to a successful career as a model, the "new talent department" at 20th Century Fox Studios, prime time television, film and a move East to marry Advertising Exec, Frank Attardi. It was in NY that she landed her most famous daytime role, that of the flamboyant Felicia Gallant on Another World. Dano then went on to make television history as the only American actress to seamlessly change networks and spend five years criss crossing all four ABC Daytime Dramas as the same character, "Dr Rae Cummings."

While working full time on Another World, Dano was the original co-host of Lifetime Television's Attitudes (first with Nancy Glass, next with Dee Kelly and later, Jerry Pennacoli), a forerunner of ABC's The View, she launched Putting It Together with Linda Dano, one of QVC's first successful fashion accessory shows and the template for shows like What Not To Wear.

A habitual multi-tasker and a kid who never believed that one job was enough, she extended her cottage industry to include books, monthly magazine features, and campaigns to help women understand how to take better care of themselves.

With The Linda Dano Home Collection for QVC, Dano returned to QVC in 2007. She loves the live television format and her ability to connect, demonstrate and "stage" different looks using her unique, functional and affordable accessories.

"Restoring our 17th Century Farmhouse, Frank and I became immersed in the history, craftsmanship and the versatility of the early settlers," Dano shared. With new items being seen for the first time this week and customer favorites returning, Dano will be live on-air to answer questions and offer her talent as your FREE DECORATOR FOR THE DAY! Don't miss it!

Past Blast

As the World Stops Turning: Thoughts on the Cancellation of As the World Turns

With candid comments from Helen Wagner (Nancy), Eileen Fulton (Lisa), Yvonne Perry (ex Rosanna) and Jeanne Cooper (Kay, Young and the Restless)

When I heard (on Soapdom) that As the World Turns is being cancelled, all I can say is that my afternoons will never be the same. I come before you to reveal that when I heard the news, it was like my world suddenly stopped turning. In fact, you can say, it crashed.

Not only as a writer/reporter have I done stories on the show and its stars, but I also have been an avid watcher and fan for more years than I care to admit. I've visited the set, met and interviewed many of the stars, and can truly say that
