An actress who appeared on a long-running daytime soap opera was found dead early Wednesday. The New York Daily News reports that Evelyn Dahab, who appeared in a few episodes of “Guiding Light,” was found by firefighters who responded to a fire at her apartment in New York’s East Village.
Dahab, who was also a writer and co-owned a Brooklyn bar, was found dead in her bed at about 3 a.m., the story reports. She was 33.
Officials said the cause of the fire, which was reportedly confined to Dahab’s apartment, was an overloaded power strip.
Dahab wrote the 2011 novel “Incapacitated,” which is described as an erotic memoir.
