Least Talented Soap Actors Still on Contract

Recommended Posts

B&B

Thorsten Kaye (god awful and miscast, not sexy, phones it in, can't hide the accent, permanent raspy voice).  Look, you can forgive Nicole Kidman on Big Little Lies for the accent coming through, but she's so fierce in every scene, you can let it go.  Not so for this dude.

 

Days

Kyler Pettis (sorry, he's badddd, he comes across as gay which isn't a bad thing, and he acts like he's five, there's no chemistry with Claire)

Freddie Smith (he's terrible and more so since he returned)

 

GH

Hayley Erin (cut your losses, she's beyond the pale bad, no matter the material)

 

YR

Melissa Ordway (another wasted casting of an important legacy character)

Daniel Hall (ditto above)

Robert Adamson (ditto)

He is only good at light hearted material. He can't do dramatic stuff which Dena has given him to do.

B&B - No way this award doesn't go to Rome Flynn. He's improved but the role should've been recast. 

 

Alley Mills should not be on the show. Pam is irrelevant and a waste of a contract. 

 

Y&R - KSJ/AH/PB all lead the pack here. I don't mind EB - he's like The Lucc - the actor/character are really the same. 

MO gets a pass barely because the writers have never figured out what to do with character.

Thorsten Kaye absolutely. Look, Ronn Moss couldn't act for [!@#$%^&*], but he just was Ridge. Like Drake Hogestyn, he was a charmingly bad actor, and that bad acting was part of the show's DNA. Check your pride, Brad Bell, and bring him back. 

 

Don't know if Elizabeth Hendricksen is on contract at Y&R, and I stopped watching Y&R regularly before she was on, but she has always been godawful on that show. Like on the rare occasion when I watch and she is on, I want to slap her instantly.

Improved is relative and I was trying to be nice because unlike the Y&R actors I mentioned, he is trying. It's a shame the engaging RE got saddled with him. She would've been far better with Darin Brooks.

That recast has always been a head scratcher to me. They should have just cut their losses and written Ridge off the show when Ronn Moss left.

Y&R: Peter Bergman - Over-enunciates and overacts. When he isn't doing either of those, he's just boring. Terrible overall.

I've long believed Thorsten Kaye is one of daytime's WORST actors. I truly feel like the Kaye, Minshew, Budig, Mathison focus is what helped destroy AMC. Ridge has always, to me, been a somewhat smarmy character and no, Ronn Moss can't act all that well, but he had a certain way of pulling the role off. Kaye is just smug, wooden, and one note- flat- in every scene. He has  no chemistry with anyone. 

 

I'm also shocked that Jason Thompson's has not been mentioned. He was somewhat, barely, tolerable on GH, but he's god awful on Y&R. Billy is written as largely unlikable to me, but his dull and lifeless acting only makes things worse. Billy Miller, who I am not the biggest fan of, could act and bring a certain charm to the role at times. Thompson's just..off. 

 

Maurice Benard is GH's worst to me. He has always been horrible and overrated. If the show, which is dying anyway, can lose Geary, they can spare Benard as well. Most of GH's cast is horrible.

Peter is a high caliber performer; he just has been given [!@#$%^&*] by Sally for the last five months.  He's trying to make the material work. He does bite his lip a lot. LOL
