How you might know her: It’s a loving reunion since Mitchell played Dinah Lee Mayberry Alden McKenzie on the soap, alongside co-star Michael Weatherly. Currently she can be seen as the title character’s girlfriend in HBO’s movie Gia, and in 1996 did the short-lived Fox series L.A. Firefighers.
What you need to know: Jane is a lawyer used to date Campbell until he broke up with her. After seeing Campbell’s brother Ben for only six months, Jane wants to marry him within 36 hours, even after Campbell begs her to reconsider and go back to him. When their Hawaiian honeymoon is cut short by a typhoon, everyone (including Jane) speculates that it wasn’t the weather that brought them back to shore.
Defining quotes: “Jane just got scared that she wouldn’t have everything in her life by the time she turned 26,” says Campbell.
Their characters/themselves: “Jane is a planner,” says Mitchell. “She plans every minute of her day – probably even when to smile. I’m probably a little bit like that. It’s an annoying quality, but I have it in spades. I had a plan for my life. It’s amazing how it doesn’t ever happen.”
