October 1990 SOD article on soap actors turned writers

Recommended Posts

I'm surprised that Gillian Spencer considered the AW treasure hunt story a highlight.Maybe from a writer's perspective the chance to write an 'adventure' story is a change from the usual and therefore more memorable.

There's along list of soap actors who also dabbled in writing. Maybe this thread can discuss this topic.

Some I can think of without researching

James Lipton

Lewis Arlt

Don Hastings

Sofia Landon

Ellen Weston

Don Chastian

Lois Kibbee

Pam Long

I never knew Marland had ever acted on the soaps before. Thanks for sharing!

Don't forget Roger Newman who wrote starred on GL as Ken Norris for several years before ending up writing on GL for a good decade before writing Passions.
