Alan Carter: Two indelible marks on daytime as Lujack and evil Dr. David...

Connie Passalacqua Hayman (Marlena De Lacroix): Like Peter Bergman, another actor who went from zero to hero. With uniquely great charisma when he debuted on GUIDING LIGHT in the 80s, his acting skills grew exponentially during his long daytime career on many shows. As villain David, he's now a whole show by himself on ALL MY CHILDREN.

Roger Newcomb: Whenever I hear "Almost Paradise" I think about Beth and Lujack riding a Palomino horse down the beach on GUIDING LIGHT. Irizarry has had incredible success since that time, but that will always be my personal favorite memory.
