    It seems like in every episode that features a scene with Monk's dearly departed wife, she is played by a difference actress. Anyone know exactly how many have portrayed Trudy Monk and why they keep recasting the part?

    As far as i know there have only been two. Stellina Rusich, who played "Trudy" in four eppys from '02 to '03. Including: Mr. Monk & The Candidate Parts 1 & 2, Mr. Monk & The Other Woman, and Mr. Monk & The Very, Very Old Man. In the rest of the episodes, 04' to current, the role of Trudy has been played by Melora Hardin. She has appeared in: Mr. Monk & The Game Show, Mr. Monk Takes His Medicine, Mr. Monk vs. The Cobra, Mr. Monk and Mrs. Monk, Mr. Monk and the Secret Santa, Mr. Monk is on the Air, and Mr. Monk is on the Run Parts 1 & 2.

    One item is wrong. In "Mr. Monk and the Secret Santa", Trudy is play by Hannah Contrucci as 6 years old Trudy.

    There was a little girl named Trudy in Secret Santa, but she wasn't Trudy Monk.
