    Daniel Pilon a.k.a. Naldo Marchetta died on 6/26 after a battle with cancer. Quite an interesting 50 year career that he had. Anyone who came between Jenna and Bobby was okay in my book .

    Sorry to read this, i enjoyed his appearances on S6/7 of Dallas original

    Always loved the way he said Jenna and his first scene when he is running along the beach and meets Katherine

    RIP Daniel Pilon

    This is sad news. Like you @Barbara Fan, I particularly liked how he pronounced the word "Jenna". He was Canadian but he pulled of the indeterminant European accent very well.

    R.I.P. Daniel. His appearance on Dallas was when it was still at the top of its game. Not a bad thing to have on the resume.

    He had a small role but it was a good one. Mother tells me he was terrific on Ryan's Hope and Guiding Light.

    Hi Southfork88,
    Can you please post some screen caps of Daniel Pilon as Naldo and also a screen cap of Naldo and Jenna on Bobby and Jenna's wedding day? I want to change my avatar. I have been clipping his scenes on Dallas this week and rewatching them. I loved him as Alan Spaulding as well. His Alan Spaulding kept my favorite couple Reva and Josh apart by messing with Marah's paternity test.

    Daniel Pilon was a terrific Guest Star on Dallas.

    I can still hear him say "Jen-na, you belong to me as does Char-Lotte."

    The way he delivered his lines made the character so memorable, after all the character was meant to Italian wasn't he?

    He was great as Renaldo Marchetta, & I wouldn't be surprised if his surname was a tribute to one of the show's writers, namely Camille Marchetta.

    Rest in Peace. :innocent:

    Oh, yes, I still hear Char-LOTTE in my head whenever anyone of that name is on the radio or TV. :)

    Naldo and Jen Nah had no chemistry whatsoever. I could have seen him having some sparks with Morgan’s Jen Nah, however.
