While many bemoan the lack of good use that actress Yvonna Kopacz-Wright (Mel Boudreau) has been put to on Guiding Light since she joined the cast in 2001, the actress has put the frequent lulls in her screen appearances to good use. You might have noticed her in a small role in last year’s Bruce Willis-Halle Berry thriller, Perfect Stranger, or in the part of Jacqueline Etienne in the TV movie Wifey. The actress has also recently completed work on another film. She played the role of Jennifer in My Father’s Will, written and directed Fred Manocherian. The film finished shooting in the late fall and tells the story of a successful businessman who agrees to his father’s dying wish to spend one month away from his status and money. It is scheduled for release some time this year.
