Has Ellen Parker (ex-Maureen, GL) appeared on more than one soap?


If I recall right she had a couple dayplayer roles on AW in the early 80’s but I don’t think either of the roles were substantial.

Also what about Brynn Thayer and Judith Light?


I don’t think Light has but as for Brynn Thayer she actually briefly appeared as Susan on Days back in 2011 when EJ made a phone call to his mother, although I don’t think we saw her face. Thayer also did a hilarious job as a Kim Zimmer type diva actress on the web soap Life in General back in 2008 if that counts too.

Kimberly simms GL.                                      Wendy Munoz GL.                                        Elaine princi OlTL.                                         Just to name a few who I'm surprised never had another role on daytime despite they're popularity 

Elaine Princi was on Days as Kate Winograd and ATWT as Miranda Hughes before OLTL

Princi also later came back on Days as a Linda Anderson recast in 1984-85.

An early example, I think, of DAYS bringing back actors in new and different roles.

She also had a short stint as a judge on Another World in the '90s.
