Fans of the dearly departed Guiding Light will have reasons to celebrate, as Jessica Leccia -- also known around Springfield as Natalia -- has signed on to the recurring role of Inez. Inez is the mother of Nate, Danielle's maybe/kinda/they-sure-do-like-making-out boyfriend.
Jessica played GL's Natalia Rivera Aitoro from 2007 until 2009, and was part of the celebrated "Otalia" pairing, along with Crystal Chappell's Olivia. After Guiding Light aired its last episode, Crystal moved on to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Carly Manning (and has been getting yelled at onscreen ever since). Now, we'll get Otalia's other half on TV.
Look for Jessica to debut as Inez on June 18th.
