COMMENTS FROM THE PANEL:
Thom Racina: (wrote for Wyndham on AW) Utterly unique, so talented, so willing to take risks and chances, she made the writing process (which often can be hell) worth it.
Connie Passalacqua Hayman (Marlena De Lacroix): Vicky Wyndham and Connie Ford. Real women, real intelligence, amazing acting a deux as the moody Rachel and her blunt talking seamstress mother Ada on ANOTHER WORLD.
Roger Newcomb: Wyndham stepped into a role made famous by Robin Strasser and made it her own. The relationship between Rachel and Mac was very special to me and Wyndham's mix of moxie and vulnerability as Rachel was pitch perfect.
Damon L. Jacobs: Ms. Wyndham defined the elegance, class, and dignity which demonstrated what a true soap heroine could embody. She always made the plots on ANOTHER WORLD seem very much like they could be happening in THIS world, no matter how outlandish they became. Rachel Cory was one of the inspiring characters of daytime I could turn to when I was having problems in my own life. Even if I wasn't having the same exact conflicts, I could identify with the never-give-up fighter spirit that Rachel personified, and that helped me figure out what to do when I was struggling. She may no longer be on our screens, but Rachel lives on every time we hope and dream for another world of our own. It is a tribute to Wyndham's legacy that the daytime landscape still has a such void without her.
COMMENTS FROM CO-STARS/CO-WORKERS/INDUSTRY:
Kale Browne: (worked with Wyndham on AW) Always on top of her game, very funny, and VERY big hair. Oh, wait...now that I think about it, I watched some old episodes on YouTube...we all had big hair back then.
Sandra Robinson: (worked with Wyndham on AW) I always think of Victoria as a particularly strong influence on me at the start of my career. I was drawn to her confidence and her ability to command a room ( or a set! LOL). She has a fantastic quirky fun side to her personality, too, which endeared her to me forever!
