Victoria & Felice were also substitutes for each other on Woman with a Past too except this time Victoria substituted for Felice.

Victoria and her father Ralph Camargo were both on AW.

Rita McLaughin's husband (forget his name right now) played the minister who performed one of the her onscreen weddings on ATWT when she played Carol. Interesting that he was a minister in real life.

Victoria Wyndham's son Christian Camargo had a small role on GL. She was also on GL years ago.

Back to some of my others.

Mona Bruns, her husband Frank Thomas and their son Frankie Thomas were all on A Woman to Remember together.

Bill Bell, Lee Philip Bell, Bradley Bell, and Lauralee Bell all have been part of B&B at times.

Beverlee McKinsey worked with her son Scott while on GH. He was a director. I don't remember but they may have worked on GL together too.


Interesting note of trivia in regards to Beverlee McKinsey, she almost got to work with her husband Berkeley Harris' ex-wife. His ex-wife - the great primetime writer Susan Harris wanted Beverlee McKinsey bad for her night soap parody, Soap.

She offered her one of the lead roles of Mary or Jessica - whichever one she wanted. McKinsey chose to stay with AW and not take the job.

Yes, and their son Tanner Woods also appeared a few weeks back on OLTL as a young Bo.....in the last scenes of the 1968 storyline.

Also OLTL-related:

Kassie DePaiva (Blair) and James DePaiva (ex-Max) are husband and wife.

And Kristen Alderson (Starr) and Eddie Alderson (Matthew) are brother and sister.

As talented as Beverlee McKinsey is, I really can't see anyone other than Katherine Helmond and Cathryn Damon playing the title roles.

A lot of mother's babies have been used on soaps.

Leah was originally played by Yolanda Wright's daughter on GL.

Duncan Tate was played by Mary Stuart's son on SFT.

I've read Christina Applegate appeared on DOOL when her mother played a nurse on the show.
