Soap Actors Famous Relatives

Recommended Posts

Slick Jones mentioned in the Soap Hoppers thread that Patrick O'Connell (Neil Everest GL) was the father of singer Billie Ellish .

 

That got me thinking about actors well known in soaps that had siblings/spouses/relatives etc that had made a name for themselves in other areas.

Hope you can add to this list.

 

To begin

Maeve Kincaid (Vanessa GL) is the sister in law of Meryl Streep.

 

Joan Copeland (Andrea SFT, Monica HTSAM etc ) is the sister of playwright Arthur Miller (Death of A Salesman etc) and one time sister in law of Marilyn Monroe.

 

Hugh Franklin (Charles AMC) was married to author Madeleine L'Engle (A Wrinkle in Time)

 

Over to you guys...

The late Christopher Lawford (Charlie, AMC) was the son of Peter Lawford and was also a Kennedy scion (the nephew of JFK)

 

Scott Evans (Fish, OLTL) is the brother of Chris Evans, aka Captain America

 

Rhonda Ross Kendrick (Toni, AW) is the daughter of Diana Ross and Motown founder Berry Gordy, half-sister of Tracee Ellis Ross, and sister-in-law of Ashlee Simpson. Through Gordy, she is also the half-sister of Rockwell (“Somebody’s Watching Me”) and Redfoo (of LMFAO).
