Candace aka Lauren

The evil Candace Donovan, aka "Lauren"

Candace Donovan (Erin Daniels) is a villainess from the TV series Stalker. She appeared in the episode "The News."

Candace Donovan is an obsessed fan of news anchor Keith Bradshaw, and has been since he worked in Chicago. Once Keith moved to LA, Candace followed him by meeting his co-worker, John Bardo, introducing herself as Lauren, and becoming John's girlfriend. She had learned that John was stalked on one previous occasion, so she secretly harassed him as an unknown stalker in an attempt to get him out of the way long enough for Keith to take the lead anchor position. Candace did this also knowing that John was away for several months the last time he was stalked.

Candace's original plan failed when John was back to work sooner than she had expected. After being found by John in his dressing room, the evil Candace pulled out a gun and pointed it right at John, while telling him that he had to go away because "it's Keith's turn now." She barricaded herself inside the room with John and continued holding him at gunpoint. Long after Beth and her task force figure out who "Lauren" really is, they tell John through his mic to get Candace to talk about her "relationship" with Keith, which she does. Keith later appears and tells Candace that they can be together, but not if she hurts John. The distraction was long enough for Candace to be subdued by John and later arrested.
