Wishful Casting: Guiding Light's Saundra Santiago As General Hospital's Domenica Zacchara


Sources have revealed a casting call has gone out for "Domenica",  the mother of Sarah Brown's General Hospital mob prima daughter Claudia Zaccharra, according to Soap Opera Digest. It's too bad ABC already wasted the brilliant Linda Dano as Rae Cummings or she'd be perfect for the role.

In lieu of Dano how about Saundra Santiago? The exotic beauity tormented starcrossed lovers Danny and Michelle for years on Guiding Light as mad lady boss Carmen Santos, so she already has the whole lethal mob mom thing down pat.

A lot of GL fans moaned and complained about GL's mob storylines, much like a lot of GH fans do now, but I bet you money most Guiding Light fans would give their eye teeth to have to those days again! I always liked Carmen, especially when pitted up against Bethany Joy Lenz's "Mee-Shell" as she used to spit out with disgust. It's no wonder the emotive Lenz went on to fame on One Tree Hill and Santiago landed a cushy recurring gig on The Sopranos. Santiago was just as menacing with Lenz's follow-up Michelle, Nancy St. Alban. If this phenomenal actress is up for a return to daytime, GH should snap her up pronto!
