Lol NB claims these women are the Heart and Soul of the industry. Who do you consider to be the Heart and Soul of Soaps?

Nelson Brancoþ@nelliebranco 21 h

Sharon Case, Katherine Kelly Lang, Finola Hughes, and Kimberly McCullough are the heart and soul of this industry. Fact.

You can't really be "the heart and soul of the industry" when you leave for many years at a time, as Finola has.

I could say, "Sarah Felder is the heart of the soap industry," but just because I say it doesn't mean it's true.

Yeah I know he's full of crap and none of those people are on my list. But he did reveal some of the ones feeding his lame ass spoilers and who I can write off!

I might agree with people like KKL, Susan Flannery and those no longer in the business like Denise Alexander, Erica Slezak. Not people who left for years to do other things and then crawled back.

The people who hold the soaps together. None of those he listed are it!

How could they since most of them left for many years

Susan Flannery and Susan Lucci would be at the top of my list whatever that drinking list really means and Bill Bell and Agnes Nixon

I am shocked Muhney isn't on the list.

Since this list has jack all to do with longevity and is just a certain someone naming his pet actors, here are my choices for the list.

My answer would be the people who created the shows, after that those people who worked in front of and behind the scenes for 25+ years. Many of those people are no longer living, but I digress.

For once, I agree with Nellie: those particular women are the heart and soul of soaps. And that's why soaps are dying.

She's certainly the most talked about soap star of the last decade.

You guys mean Kelly Sullivan isn't the heart and soul of the entire industry right now?

The Heart and Soul of Soaps are work-a-day actors like:

Esther Linder (Y&R)
Jennifer Bassey (AMC)
James Reynolds (DAYS)

Those actors who never really received acclaim for their roles, and didn't attempt to leave the genre, although I don't fault actors for trying to move on.

THOSE committed to their roles, bring all they have each time, and stick around, even when times are bleak. THESE are the Heart and Soul of Soaps.

I think the heart and soul was some of the greats that we lost through the years like

GH's Steve Hardy and Lila Quartermaine
AMC's Mona Tyler, Grandma Kate, Aunt Phoebe
OLTL's Asa
DAYS's Alice and Tom
ATWT's Nancy

Kate Linder has the perfect contract. She's plays a character who would qualify as reoccurring and is is free to do whatever outside projects she pleases.
