Well, I've never heard of her, though I've only been around for the 90's
and the latter 80's. Who was this "Jane" character and what relationship
did she hae with the rest of the soap? And when was she on?

Wasn't she the woman who was battered by her husband? She stayed at the
Lord mansion for awhile. It was about 6 years ago or so.

My guess, and only a guess, mind you, is that it was the Jane from
circa 1991 who was an abused wife. She looked like an abused wife.
I didn't know it was type casting at the time, but I'll jump to
This was the first of the Gottlieb storylines, perhaps even before
Malone was hired. It still had the feel of OLTL, as long termers will
get my drift. Jane and her abusive husband were brought onto the canvas
very quickly, and Megan and Viki were involved in the storyline. They
protected Jane from her husband. (The actor who played the husband was
a fairly well known character actor from Hwood.)
Gottlieb crowed that this storyline (a short arc) was a vast improvement
over everything anyone had ever attempted on OLTL, and with it she
would revolutionize the industry. It wasn't a bad storyline, but the
overly quick introduction of this couple, this story, and the
lack of any continuing use of either character made me question every
word Gottlieb ever uttered thereafter. Let Gottlieb stay in Hollywierd
hyping whatever project she may next finagle. We're about to see
two weeks of the best of OLTL, which will prove OLTL was just fine
before Gottlieb, thank you. I certainly hope Labine and family will
resurrect what was once a good show.
I may be wrong in my identification of the Jane actress. Whoever
she may be, may the lord be with her. It's a tragic situation.
And may the Lord(s) be back in Llanview, too.
I don't recall a "Jane" character on OLTL and have watched since 1969.
Anyone else? Maybe I missed something!
I think Catherine Ann Christenson was also on AMC, as Dr. Amy Stone,
one of Cliff Warner's between-marriages-to-Nina girlfriends.
When he dumped her she ran out into traffic and was run over.
They named a clinic after her.

I remember the actress, cause she was at the center of one of the worst plots
I've ever seen on soap opera.
