Real Life Relatives on Soaps

Recommended Posts

  • Members

Many soap actors have siblings/parents/spouses who have also appeared on soaps.

Which of those have had relatives who have been on the same show,either at the same time or in different time frames?

Some examples

Bill and Susan Hayes ( married -Doug & Julie Williams DOOL)

Michael & James Storm (brothers who both played Larry Wolek on OLTL - Michael replaced James in the role)

Ed & Scott Bryce (father & son both on ATWT,as Philip Demming in the 70's and Craig Montgomery 80's onwards)

Heather & David Tom (siblings -Victoria Newman & Billy Abbott Y&R-at the same time)

Who else can we add to the list?

Very early on the 50's Mona Bruns, her husband Frank Thomas and their son Frankie Thomas were on many soaps

Frank Provo & John Pickard were early writing partners together. They were "domestic" partners and rumored to have married.

Larry Bryggman (ex-John, ATWT) has had 2 wives in the business - Jacqueline Shultz (ex-ATWT; SFT) and his current wife Tracey is a director on GL

ATWT has fawned several backstage couples over the years besides Larry & Jacqueline. There are:

Don Hastings & Leslie Denniston

Maura West & Scott Defreitas

Lesli Kay married an actor that was on there too - forgot his name.

I can't remember their names right now but there were the Kearney siblings who did not play the same role on The Doctors but were both child actors on the soap.

Shawn Campbell (ex- LIAMST & The Doctors) was a cousin to Ian Washam (ex-AMC)

Steve Burton & Sean Kanan are cousins

No problems,Steve.

I thought I'd keep it to one show to just to add a twist.

Your larger list makes for fascinating reading.

By the way,are Robert & Roger Newman related in any way?

I recently read that Stephen Burleigh and Hope Buzby were(are?)married.At different times they were both on SFT as siblings Liza ang Gary Walton.
