A Popular TV Actress
Florencia Lozano, 48, plays the role of Wendy on Kevin Can Wait. She rose to fame with the role of Téa Delgado, an attorney on the ‘90s daytime drama, One Life to Live.
Lozano’s character on One Life to Live became so popular that she received fan mail even two years after she left the show! She reprised her role on the show in 2008 until 2012.
Switching from daytime television to prime time shows, Lozano has starred in Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Gossip Girl, and Lipstick Jungle. She also appeared in Ugly Betty and General Hospital.

In 2016, Lozano took on the role of agent Claudia Messina in the Netflix crime drama, Narcos.
Love Thy Neighbor
As Wendy, Lozano guest-stars on Kevin Can Wait and has already become popular with fans of the show.
We first met Wendy on Kevin Can Wait’s Thanksgiving episode in 2017. She won over Kevin (and us!) with her incredible cooking skills.
After Kevin’s wife Donna’s death, he found it hard to put together a Thanksgiving meal. But with Wendy’s help, Kevin was able to prepare a perfect Thanksgiving meal for his family and Vanessa.
Will Wendy Win Over Kevin?
With her constant talking, frequent visits to the Gable home, and amazing cooking abilities, she wormed her way into Kevin’s life. It’s no wonder Kevin called her the “best cook on Seville Lane.”
Everyone knows the real reason for Wendy’s visits, but Kevin thinks she is just helping him out as a single parent.
When Kendra, Kevin’s daughter reminds him that “Wendy wore Spanx to deliver ziti last week,” Kevin plays down Wendy’s interest in him and claims that all he cares about is the food.
Wendy returned on last night’s episode with lip-smacking Swedish meatballs in hand!
Lozano posted this picture on Instagram before the episode aired. Dressed in a floral print apron, Lozano described herself as “‘Wendy’ the kooky cooking neighbor!”
Will Wendy finally succeed in seducing Kevin via her home-cooked meals? Keep watching Kevin Can Wait to find out!
