The search is over! Nancy St. Alban will take over the role of Michelle Santos on Guiding Light from the departing Joie Lenz, whose last airdate is Oct. 4. St. Alban starred in the Hallmark Hall of Fame's Durango. Look for her to begin Oct. 27. But don't expect Michelle and Danny to reconcile quickly — or easily. GL has cast Elizabeth Hobgood to play May, a sexy cocktail waitress Danny hires for the club who is certain to catch the lonely Santos's eye. Hobgood recently played a nosy reporter digging for dirt at Bianca's homecoming party on All My Children. She starts airing Sept. 26.
