Maybe I read this wrong but I assume Eileen Davidson would own this topic. How many characters did she play on Days. Kristen, Susan, the Nun (Can't remember her name), there was the male character (Thomas? or something) and Penelope (I think).

Yes, Eileen Davidson played Sister Mary Moira & Tomas, along with the ones you've said: Kristen, Susan, Penelope, 5 roles, total. Reilly had her working every day M-F plus on Saturdays. She was wonderful. Which one was in love with Elvis? Susan? I can't remember, but I think it was Susan. Someone should put that out on DVD. I wonder if Robert Forester has it in his collection. I'll have to look at the *.pdf

No, Robert doesn't have any of it. (I'm not sure if *pdf is the right abbreviation. Hmm.) Could be on SoapWorld.com, on Amazon, on eBay, ...

If I am recalling this correctly, Reilly even apologized to her about the workload, but she was in heaven, knowing he was giving her brilliant work to do! It is my favorite Reilly storyline.

Didn’t Corday give her a diamond necklace when she left the first time?  I remember reading she got a really nice gift.

 

 

Could they afford that now lol

I assume not, since it would now be a tough budget choice between a  necklace or a set.

Not sure if Sarah Michelle Geller has been listed. She played Kendall on AMC and returned towards the end of the show (was it the last week or something) and did a small guest spot for a day. I know this thread is mostly about on going roles, but I feel this still counts.

Surprised they missed Tamara Braun, who did it on two shows (DAYS and GH).

She was on AMC, too. (Reece) Was she on ATWT?

Was Sarah Michelle Gellar on GL before she was on AMC?

Stephen Schnetzer- Cass Winthrop, Krystal Lake, Rex Allingham

Ellen Wheeler, Anne Heche, and Jensen Buchanan- Marley and Vicky

 

Often, they automatically said, "Krystal with a K Lake."

 

 

Rhonda Llewin and Cynthia Watros

He was also on the Writing Team.

Robert Gentry- Detective Craig Morris, Philip Lyons

Christine Jones- Janice Frame, Amy Cushing

Robert Kelker-Kelly- Shane Roberts, Sam Fowler

 

And, a third, Bobby Reno, which we tended to pronounce like this "BobbaReno". And, while I'm expressing an opinion, many of us thought that if RKK wanted to come back onto the show that it should have been as Sam again!

Shane Roberts and Bobby Reno were the same character, not two different ones. Cass Winthrop dressed in drag as Krystal Lake, but she’s not a separate character. These aren’t Eileen Davidson on DAYS scenarios here.

Between longer stints on TD and GL, Geraldine Court played the first Jennifer Ryan Hughes on ATWT. Years later, she played a short-term character named Jennifer Hobart. Her character on GL was also named Jennifer, so maybe she looked like a Jennifer to soap writers.
