Why, yes, it is! I vaguely remember when Lee was on the show. Probably my BIGGEST memory is the fit she threw when Doug & Julie got remarried. Thankfully it's on youtube. lol Poor Brenda Benet had such a sad story in real life.

Didn't she date someone from Days?

She was utterly fantastic as Lee. I often wondered how the Lee/Stefano storyline would have played out if not for Brenda's untimely death. I think it would have been an epic romance revisited. I bet Renee would never have been killed off the show either had Lee remained. The DiMeras as a core family would have been quite different, and it could have ultimately changed the course of the show's history, as Stefano may have been redeemed by Lee.

We'll never know. :unsure:

She was only 36?! And playing Renee's mother? They're like the Lexie and Celeste before Lexie and Celeste.

To be fair, when Renee was 1st introduced she was late teens. I even think her 21st birthday was celebrated on the show and I think it was after Lee was gone (but please don't quote me on that). I remember reading something from later in the characters run that mentioned Renee's age and I was kinda surprised because I never realized she was THAT young (as a kid, everyone was "older" to me lol). It was one of the reasons when Phelice Sampler became Donna Love on AW everyone was SO put out because she had just played such a young character who suddenly went to playing the mother of characters not that much younger than the character she'd previously played just a few years before.

Oh! So Sampler was just playing younger. Okay.

And if you want to think about travisty mother/child castings, Susan Seaforth Hayes was only 32 when Richard Guthrie (age 25) debuted as Julie's SORASed to an adult son David Banning. That also means that SSH was playing an on-screen grandmother at 35. And people wonder why ATWT's Eileen Fulton had a "no grandchildren" clause in her contract for so many years.

I would not be opposed to Kate bedding Nick so he can be 3 generationer.
