Characters and sets

Recommended Posts

For many years a soap set was integral to a character - their history, their identity, to the point where some soaps made a big deal out of moving (GL having Fletcher say goodbye to the home he'd shared with Maeve, etc.)

Is there any particular set you always associate with a certain soap character?

The Quartermaine Mansion & the Quartermaines on GH. That set is synonymous with them.

Bobbie and the brownstone.


Also from GH:

Sean and Tiffany and their penthouse

Lucy and Kevin and the lighthouse


The Cortlandts and Courtlandt Manor

Benny and Donna and their apartment

Phoebe and Langley and the Wallingford Estate

Erica and Linden House


The Buchanans and the Buchanan mansion

The imposing black and white (and apparently expensive as hell) Clegg mansion was Capitol's iconic set. I wonder how it would have evolved over the years had the show lived even until the '90s.

I don't think Erica Kane ever had a set better than her '80s pink and mauve Linden House. That's the iconic Erica Kane set to me.

OLTL's Dorian had several sets and they were always just right for where the character was in life, in terms of priorities and even wardrobe. This penthouse set is my favorite:

It didn't last long, but Sydney Chase's penthouse in The City was so pitch perfect straight out of the gate.

One of the soap sets I always associate with a character is Jack's apartment on Ryan's Hope. He got it when he was a young man, his first home, and he never wanted to leave, because it represented everything about him. Through marriage, separation, reconciliation, being widowed, raising a child, he never left that apartment.

    • The writer in me wants her to suffer. In every way possible  Please register in order to view this content
    • I thought they would just omit the Jill retcon like they omitted Dylan from Nikki's special. I guess they didn't do that because she's still on the show (same reason for Paul vs Brad since they pretend Paul is still on the show). Two scenes was too much for Jill, but the first one was a painful explanatory scene so guess they wanted to put in the more memorable one from when Lauren and Michael walked in on her and Colin (in fact, the ONLY memorable Jill/Lauren scene).   When Gloria said she probably wouldn't have gotten along with Mary... I'm like right bitch you could never hold a candle to her.    As stupid as it is that Lauren doesn't know about Sheila, it would be great if she and Michael got invited to some fashion gala in LA (of course they would have to do it on B&B to have any chance of it actually occuring onscreen) and Sheila and Bill were there.   When Phyllis popped up I was afraid they would get into Pheila and Sarah Smythe (shudder) but the scene they picked was actually very sweet. Those clips were Lauren was pregnant are the prettiest she looked in all her years on the show IMO.
    • I figured it would be bad and I remember @carolineg had some interesting comments to the scenes. I figured it would be some propped writing with her being the victim. That IS NOT what I saw. WL did such a great job with those scenes (and the next day which I'm watching as I type) and said everything I wanted to see him say so I'm fine. Joss though...what a B. lol. I am no longer at all interested in the Joss/Dex pairing. In fact...GIRL, BYE.  I'm about ready to go RHOA/RHOP Housewife on her and read her down. lol. But writer in me, looking forward to it exploding in the middle of the Michael vs Sonny feud.    Yep. I see myself living through Spencer in terms of disliking Dex moving forward. He has been good. 
    • 1-25   I saw Lauren's episode.   I liked it, but it really screamed missed opportunity to me. Always happy to see Jill, but does anyone care that Jill and her are still sisters? Fen coming out and it all happened off screen? And so much focus on Paul...but where was he? And no Brad? And the worst fear realized for some here...they all just sitting around talking. Please register in order to view this content   I did love the flashbacks. OOOOH MARY HOW I'VE MISSED YOU!!! That whole scene...lol. No one really does shade like how Paul's mother did it. I don't have enough scenes of Joanna who it was nice seeing her. It was great to see the Traci/Lauren rivalry touched on. And we know I LOVED seeing any of the Sheila/Lauren lab catfight...still hoping she shows up now that she's attached to Bill Spencer. Could you imagine Lauren's reaction? And I don't know about everyone else, but during the midway point commercial breaks, they did a montage of Lauren's appearances in the various openings. I didn't know Lauren was around for the...paint stroke(?) Y&R opening. More proof of her legacy.    Liked it, but again missed opportunity.    Nice to know I am not the only one who likes Sharon.
