Whether characters who are gone for good from shows that are still on the air, or characters from cancelled soaps, I thought I’d open the floor to ask people who they still from daytime TV and why they miss them.
For me, I still find myself flashback back to the good old days of “Port Charles” and especially Alison Barrington played by Erin Hershey Presley. Such a great, dynamic, funny, moving heroine on that show, and I think I miss her even more because Hershey Presley really hasn’t acted much since then.
And I’d kill to have Marcie Walsh from “One Life to Live” back. Or at least get the great Kathy Brier back on my TV screen in whatever capacity she wants because I would watch her read the phone book. Even better if she sang the phone book.
With so few soaps left on the air, there are so many characters and actors who are out of commission. I could make a lengthy list, but for me, number one is very easy: Carrie Brady. I find it so appalling that DAYS didn’t make more of an effort to have her around when Christie Clark was more available to them (now that she’s living in the U.K., I can’t even dream of them luring her back). She’s a legacy character who really grew up on the show and was a staple of the 90s, so once they got her back in the 2000s, they should have held on tight.
