—Marie Bird, Ridgecrest, Calif.

Macchio played Archie Rodriguez on TV's Ugly Betty in 2009. Most recently, he made a splash competing on Dancing With the Stars. "The live-theater performing element of the show was far and away my favorite," says Macchio, 49, who lives in New York with his wife and two children. "Overall, it was a grind and exhausting at times, but I loved the thrill of the footlights!"
