SHINING STARS - These eight actors quit their day jobs and haven't lived to regret it
article excerpt

RB in Shining Stars Richard Burgi

  • ex-Chad, Another World
  • ex-Philip, Days Of Our Lives
  • ex-Randy, One Life To Live
  • ex-Glen, As The World Turns

Pre-AW: Nothing to speak of.

Just the facts:In addition to his impressive list of Daytime credits, Burgi has racked up serious hours on-stage and in Primetime. His appearances on sitcoms like Seinfeld and Who's The Boss? have shown audiences that he has a serious funny bone. Not to mention aptitude for playing cops. Before he was cast in his current role, James on The Sentinel, he played an investigator on the short-lived drama One West Waikiki, opposite former Charlie's Angel Cheryl Ladd.

Photo captions:[left] "Richard does a stunning job of flying by the seat of his pants where acting is concerned," marvels Leigh Taylor-Young (Elaine, Sunset Beach), who has a recurring role on his series, The Sentinel. "He brings so much reverence to the process of acting that there is an enormous amount of spontaneity on the set all the time." [below right] While on AW Burgi had a real-life romance with co-star Anne Heche (ex-Vicky/Marley).
