Linda Dano Biography
Linda Dano Alzheimer’s
The soap opera star cared for her father who suffered from the disease until his death in 1996. Now she wants to help others coping with loved ones stricken by Alzheimer’s. Dano joined the National Family Caregivers Association in launching a new consumer campaign designed to provide information, resources, and support to caregivers and their families. For several years Dano has worked with organizations to tackle medical conditions such as depression and Alzheimer’s disease.
Her father’s life was taken by the effects of Alzheimer’s and she would battle depression later after the double loss of her husband as well as her mother, Evelyn, a week-and-a-half afterward, with mother showing signs of dementia before her death. Dano is active in such groups as HeartShare, the National Osteoporosis Foundation, the National Alzheimer’s Association, and Support Partners, among others. Dano is also a patron of the Catholic Guardian Society of New York.
Linda Dano Hallmark
She wowed us for decades on NBC’s Another World as the flamboyant, but flawed (and also fantastic) Felicia Gallant, and then made her way through the ABC soaps as Rae Cummings. Now, Linda Dano is back on our small screens… and of course, it’s with a soap connection.
On The Chronicle Mysteries, Days of Our Lives veteran Alison Sweeney plays Alex McPherson, a novelist and podcaster who takes on a cold case.
At the Hallmark Channel’s recent semi-annual bash, Soap Hub caught up with Linda Dano, who shared the scoop on her new role on The Chronicle Mysteries, AW memories, and her time at ABC as Rae Cummings!
How are you enjoying tonight?
This party’s magnificent! Hallmark is treating me like I’m a star!
Thank you. I came home after doing the film and friends were asking me if I’d do another. I said if they ask, yes! Ali [Sweeney] called me at home and offered me the part. It all started last year when I called her and said I love Hallmark. It’s so ‘feel good.’ And I’m happy to see you on it.
A few months later, she called me and said, ‘I have a part for you.’ It’s in the last of her three films [for now] with this series. She asked if I’d come and play. I didn’t hesitate. I asked if they’d fly me to Vancouver where it filmed. They did! First class!
What can you say about your role on The Chronicle Mysteries?
The woman I play and her husband created and operate a wine empire. I’m the matriarch. Everyone at Hallmark couldn’t have been nicer. I felt so at home, so welcome, which is important.
It’s going to be 20 years in June that AW went off the air.
Can you believe that?
