Actress Ayda Field first came to public attention via her inclusion in the long-running Days of Our Lives soap opera, on NBC, but soon began to specialize in comedic roles that showcased her extreme versatility with characterizations. She graduated to prime time via participation in the Jeff Foxworthy-Bill Engvall-Larry the Cable Guy sketch comedy series Blue Collar TV, which premiered in 2004. Field continued to land supporting roles in series pilots over the next several years, many of which cropped up and subsequently failed to blossom into successful series -- including the Aaron Sorkin ensemble comedy drama Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (2006). In 2007, however, Field also landed a plum role on the Kelsey Grammer/Patricia Heaton sitcom Back to You, as Hispanic meteorologist Montana Diaz Herrera. Meanwhile, Field continued to tackle feature work on the side, signing on for a small role in the Adam Sandler-produced, Steve Zahn-headlined comedy Strange Wilderness (2008).
