    Warren Beatty was on Love Of Life in 1958
    Ellen Burstyn played Dr. Kate Bartok on The Doctors (1964-65)
    Sandy Dennis was on The Brighter Day in the late 1950’s
    Olympia Dukakis was on Search For Tomorrow in the early 1980’s
    Patty Duke was on The Brighter Day in the late 1950’s
    Joan Fontaine did a guest stint (and got an Emmy nomination) for Ryan’s Hope in 1980
    Morgan Freeman had a one day role (!) on Ryan’s Hope in 1979
    Lee Grant was on Search For Tomorrow in 1953
    Celeste Holm was on Loving in the early 1990’s
    Kim Hunter should have won the Emmy for her role as alcoholic has-been actress Nola Madison on The Edge Of Night (1979-80)
    Shirley Jones did a guest role on General Hospital
    Tommy Lee Jones played Dr. Mark Toland for 3 years (1972-75) on One Life To Live
    Kevin Kline was on Search For Tomorrow in the late 1970’s
    Jack Lemmon was on the early 1950’s soap Hawkins Falls
    Melissa Leo was on All My Children as Linda Warner (Emmy nomination, 1984-85)
    Julianne Moore was on The Edge Of Night in 1984 and As The World Turns (1985-88) She’s the only Daytime Emmy winner to win an Oscar!
    Eva Marie Saint was on the early 1950’s soap Hawkins Falls
    Susan Sarandon was on A World Apart (1970-71) and Search For Tomorrow (1972-73)
    Gale Sondergaard did a guest stint on Ryan’s Hope in 1976
    Elizabeth Taylor did a famous guest stint as Helena Cassadine during Luke & Laura’s wedding in 1981
    Marisa Tomei played Marcie on As The World Turns (1983-85)

    There are probably others too but these are the ones I am aware of… (I think it was Christopher Walken’s brother who was on The Guiding Light as a child in the 1950’s?)
