Iconic on more than one soap


Recommended Posts

Piggybacking on the one and done thread, how many daytime actors have made a real impact as different characters on more than one show? What are the iconic ones?


Off the top of my head


Beverlee McKinsey

I have seen so little of Iris, but I have read enough to know she was a major character and 

was excellent on the show.  Alexandra on GL was pretty great.


Robin Strasser- again, I’ve seen very little of her time as Rachel on AW, but she helped drive the show for years, and people used to talk about it all the time.  Dorian is another iconic part, even though she was a recast and left and came back, it always felt like she was the one that married Victor and tormented Viki.

Heather Tom on OLTL, B&B and Y&R. I find it so impressive she had 3 completely different roles that she made her own. 

Julie Pinson is another. Of course she was beloved as Eve on Port Charles and then she to many people is the definitive Billie on Days, despite being a recast. 

Laura Wright also deserves props for her success at GL and GH which couldn’t be more different.

Larkin Malloy comes to mind.


Some may quibble, but I remember Jess Walton on Capitol before Y&R.


Some may not like this one but I think Justin Deas was pretty memorable in all his daytime roles. He certainly has his fans. 

His wife Margaret Colin was pretty memorable (and better liked too) during her stints in daytime.


John Wesley Shipp


Lisa Brown


Jennifer Ashe


This was before my time but Don Hastings was on the first years of The Edge Of Night before going to As The World Turns, which I think is pretty iconic.
