As we were talking about Genie Francis and how, other than Laura on GH, her daytime work hasn’t really made much of an impact, I was trying to think if there’s any current or recent soap actor who’s played a significant role on all four of the remaining soaps. I could come up with some actors who have done three of them, but no one who has done all four. But I could easily be forgetting someone or a stint someone had somewhere.
Among those with three of the four:
Genie Francis (GH, Y&R, DAYS)
Greg Vaughan (DAYS, GH, Y&R)
Sarah Brown (GH, DAYS, B&B)
Sean Kanan (B&B, Y&R, GH)
Eileen Davidson (Y&R, DAYS, B&B)
Lauren Koslow (Y&R, B&B, Days)
Tracey Bregman (Days, Y&R, B&B)
Rick Hearst has done all four!
Ah yes, I had forgotten about Tracey Bregman’s DAYS stint. I didn’t realize Lauren Koslow had been on Y&R.
I also remembered Kimberlin Brown on Y&R, B&B, and GH.
Robin Mattson just needs Y&R.
– Heather, GH
– Lee, DAYS
– Cheri, ATWT
– Sugar, B&B
– Janet, AMC
– Gina, SB
– Delia, RH
– Hope, GL
She also needs an Emmy. Look at that resume and tell me how she’s never won? Sadly, she was never even nominated for AMC. A true travesty.
^I agree about Robin Mattson. She deserved more than four nominations, and her roles on GH, SB and AMC were all Emmy-worthy (:
So is Rick Hearst the only one who has been on all four? Are there any past stars who have been on all four?
Rick Hearst is the only actor who has been on all four of the current daytime soaps: The Bold and the Beautiful (as Whip Jones), Days of Our Lives (as Scott Banning), General Hospital (his second and third career Emmys, in 2004 and 2007, as Ric Lansing), and The Young and the Restless (as Matt Clark).
