Smith would work though on looks. There is probably an actress out there that could play the role. Victoria Wyndham was a recast for Rachel and look how that turned out on Another World.
I don't think you can compare AW's Rachel recast to this. The character was still fairly young at the time, and Robin Strasser (I believe was the actress before Wyndham), while popular, at the time was no Deidre Hall. And the character of Rachel, at the time, was no Marlena.

Not even comparable.
I don't know. Rachel was HUGE at the time and I've talked to people on boards who said the move was met with alot of backlash so I think they are similar. No, Robin wasn't huge then but the character was.

I think your right if we are comparing the popularity of actresses but I was thinking more in terms of the character. However, you did hit on something. Marlena has been on alot longer with Dee in the role then Robin was with Rachel at the time so maybe it's not as easily comparable as I thought.
