I'm not certain which former Guiding Light scribe created the character of Elizabeth "Lizzie" Spaulding, but he or she should be credited for envisioning one of daytime's most star-making roles.
Former Lizzie, Hayden Panettiere (who also played OLTL's Sarah Roberts), is fast becoming one of Hollywood's favorite "It" girls with star turns in Heroes and a hot spokesmodel deal with Candies.
Queen of All Media Perez Hilton seems to love the little blonde spitfire almost as much as he loves Rihanna and Angelina, if you look at how much he covers her-in a positive light no less! Another actress to once carry Liziez's purse pup, Crystal Hunt, is also blazing a trail as both star and producer of The Hicks.
I wonder how long it will be before we see the equally cutesexy (an awesome new phrase I stole from Likely Story!) Marcy Rylan-who is currently occupying Lizzie's Manolos and starred opposite Panettiere in Bring it On: All or Nothing-take Pop Culture by storm?
