Top 10 Favorite Actresses in a TV Soap Opera
The Top Ten
This is the best person I have ever seen in my whole life.
She is the one that set the bar for all others
Susan lucci is a good actor
When it comes to acting, she's the epitome of perfection. She gives heart and soul and I appreciate that. Also, I love Stephanie!
Kristien can really pis off Brady AND Brody - alexispoland1094
She is the total package
Personally I think that Allison Sweeny is the best on that show, it she does pretty good too.
Lindsay Hartley was so amazing beautiful and talented on passions, days of our lives and now on as the world turns... I love her to death she is truly one of my favorite actresses and soap stars of all time - terren65
Judi has proven herself to be an excellent actress from her Emmy Winning performance of rape victim Beth on Guiding Light to low-self esteem queen Adrienne on Days Of Our Live to her Soap Opera Award for her tour-de-force performance of Paulina on Another World to white trash mom on Days. She can break your heart one minute and having you laughing so hard the next. A truly underrated actress when given good material can hit a home run every time.
Simply of the best actresses on daytime. Loved her so much as Paulina Cory McKinnon Carlino on Another World. Her fake marriage to Jake and the weight story line with Joe were my favorites! Love this woman.
I have been watching old reruns of GL, and have found her potrayal of Hillary Bauer fasinating, and entertaining, she has great comic timing.
Most beautiful and definitely the most talented actress

Brenda was the reason I started watching General Hospital. I was flipping channels and saw Vanessa Marcil and Antonio Sabato Jr. And was like - WHOA - who are these gorgeous people? I stuck around and fell in love with the characters. Brenda really came into her own when she met Sonny. Vanessa brought Brenda to life in a way that General Hospital would never recast her character even when Vanessa left. The fans never would have accepted it. Unlike many characters on daytime, Brenda cannot be recast b/c quite simply there is no one but Vanessa Marcil who has the beauty and acting chops to do the character justice.
Vanessa played the ultimate soap opera heroine in Brenda Barrett - unparalleled in beauty and spunk. Vanessa creates chemistry with everyone she works with. Also her Brenda is one half of the last of the supercouples with Sonny played by the amazing Maurice Bernard.
Always studdering makes so much sense after a while

Melina Kanakaredes was the original Eleni Andros Spaulding Cooper and was on the show from 1991-1994. She is my favourite actress so this was an easy choice, but still. She did some fantastic work on that show and should be on this list - axelsonfire
She plays Lulu very well. And she's very pretty. I don't know what all to say. Great job!
