Who is the pretty new spokesperson in the Wendy's ads?

Morgan Smith Goodwin, the reliably cute and perky redhead, is everyone’s new favorite fast food spokeswoman for Wendy's. She is an actress originally from Birmingham, Alabama, who has worked mostly in the New York theater.

The first Wendy's was opened on November 15, 1969, in Columbus, Ohio by Dave Thomas, who named the restaurant after his fourth child Melinda Lou "Wendy" Thomas. It is the world's third largest hamburger fast food chain, but ranks number two in sales. Wendy's has approximately 6,650 locations in the US and employs more than 46,000 people worldwide.

This summer in Japan, the limited-period addition to the Wendy's menu was a lobster surf and turf burger and a caviar and lobster sandwich!
