Did Eric Braden act on any other soap?

No .Y&R was his first soap and he's stayed on for 40 years so hardly hard the chance to do another.

Same goes for most performers who played the same role for years eg Suzanne Rogers, Erika Slezak,Jeanne Cooper etc

I'm not 100% sure, but I think other than Adrienne Frantz, none of B&B's late 90s/early 2000s younger crowd appeared on another daytime soap.

 

This includes:

Justin Torkildsen (Rick)
Mick Cain (C.J.)

Ashley Lyn Cafagna (Kimberly)
Jennifer Finnigan (Bridget)

Marissa Tait (Becky)

 

I don't think Carrie Mitchum (Donna Logan #1) had another soap role, either.

I think you're right. Jacob Young did go on to GH and AMC before ending back up on B&B years later, but I don't think the others listed here ever did another soap.

Some other Ryan's Hope actors who come to mind who spent significant time (2+ years) on that show:

  • Malcolm Groome (Pat Ryan #1, 1975-78, 1983-88, 1989)
  • Marg Helgenberger (Siobhan Ryan #3, 1982-86)
  • Catherine Hicks (Faith Coleridge #3, 1976-78)
  • Karen Morris-Gowdy (Faith Coleridge #4, 1978-83, 1989)
  • Grant Show (Rick Hyde, 1984-87)
  • David Sederholm (Bill Hyde, 1983-85)
  • Jason Adams (John Reid Ryan #2, 1986-89)
  • Gerit Quealy (Jacqueline Dubujak, 1983-85, 1987)
  • Thomas McGreevy (Tom Desmond, 1977-79)
  • Hannibal Penney, Jr. (Clem Moultrie, 1975-78)

I seem to recall that Grant Show appeared on Y&R before RH...but it was a very small dayplayer-type role.

I couldn't find any other soaps on the resumes of the first three Marys - Kate Mulgrew, Mary Carney and Kathleen Tolan. Nicolette Goulet aka Mary #4 went on to SFT and GL.

Did anyone name Julianne Moore, Judson Mills (ATWT?)?  She went on to pretty much everything, and he has been in some things, one Walker Texas Ranger.  Laura Bell Bundy, GL, Tom Pelphry GL, Taye Diggs and Tammy Blanchard, GL.
