Please tell me where I’ve seen Gina Tognoni other than on Guiding Light. I know I’ve seen her sweet face somewhere else.

You likely saw Tognoni on One Life to Live, on which she played Kelly Cramer Buchanan from 1995 to 2002. Last June, Tognoni, 34, won her second Daytime Emmy for her Guiding Light role as Dinah Marler. Her GL cast mate Beth Ehlers (Harley Cooper) introduced her to businessman Joseph Chiarello, now her fianc√©. “I waited a long time for someone special like him,” says Tognoni, who in 1992 was named Miss Rhode Island Teen.
