What can you tell me about Jill Whelan, who played Vicki Stubing on The Love Boat?
—Tayden Knicely, Madison Heights, Va.

Since 2003, Whelan, 45, has been living outside Philadelphia, Pa., where she is married and has been raising her sons, 16 and 5, while running the Jill Whelan Acting Studio. "I'm just starting to get back into acting myself again," says Whelan, who stars in the British farce, Move Over Mrs. Markham, at the Stage West Dinner Theatre in Mississauga, Canada, through Nov. 20. "I have incredible memories of The Love Boat. Although we didn't feel it then, it was much more innocent then than it is now."
