Remember Bonnie Dennison who played Daisy on Guiding Light?   Well, the young actress has just nabbed a primo role from the creative team behind the Emmy-Award winning comedy 30 ROCK, which includes Tina Fey!

According to, “Bonnie has landed a lead role in Fox’s multi-camera comedy pilot created/executive produced by 30 Rock co-executive producer Matt Hubbard and exec producer by 30 Rock creator/co-showrunner Tina Fey and co-showrunner Robert Carlock.

The pilot which is an untitled comedy is set at a women’s college that begins accepting men for the first time in its history. Dennison will play Thena (originally named Callie), a pretty but uptight sophomore, a hard-core feminist and leader of the sizable population of Cabot College that does not want men on campus. However, her militance masks a vulnerable and romantic side that pops up in unexpected ways.”

What do you think of Bonnie Dennison landing this role?  Shocked?  Delighted? What do you think of the shows premise? Would you be checking it out if it makes it to series?   Let us know!

    I am willing to give it a try. Dennison wasn’t given the credit she deserved on GL. Of course, I am not sure anyone would have been well received after the ever so popular and talented Brittany Snow! Dennison brought a little more depth to the role IMO. I also enjoyed her very much on Third Watch! They should try to get Beth Ehlers to recurr as her mother!

    I miss guiding light so much, not with her, but in its heyday.


  5. Rob says:

    I never liked the character she played on GL, but she is definitely a talented actress
