It's always great to see former soap stars pop up in primetime and this weekend was a great weekend for former soap stars guesting in new episodes of primetime TV.
CBS's Moonlight took the cake this past weekend with former soap stars. In addition to former Days of Our Lives star Eric Winter, who has joined the cast, Moonlight also featured former All My Children star William Christian (ex-Derek) and Peyton List ( ex-Lucy Montgomery, As the World Turns).
Since leaving As the World Turns List has been racking up quite the list of primetime guest roles. She's appeared on Smallville, One Tree Hill, Without A Trace, CSI: Miami, CSI: New York, and Daybreak. Not to mention starring in ABC's on the bubble Big Shots.
Following up Moonlight on Friday was CBS's Ghost Whisperer where former General Hospital star Nikki Cox (ex-Gina Williams) popped up as a former love interest for professor Rick Payne, portrayed by Jay Moyr.
Cold Case wrapped up CBS's soap stars in primetime weekend, with a guest role for Another World bad boy Mark Pinter (ex-Grant Harrison) who portrayed the father of a former drug addict woman whose child had died in a fire and the Cold Case team was investigating. His makeup job was so good I wouldn't have recognized him if not for his voice. The moment I heard his voice I was like "That's Grant Harrison!" Of course Cold Case is the show where General Hospital's Sarah Brown starred for a short time a few years back.
