10 Actors Who Played Two Completely Unrelated Roles on The Same Soap Opera
No. 9: Carrie Nye, Guiding Light
Acclaimed stage actress Carrie Nye played regal real estate maven Susan Piper on Guiding Light in the 80's. Her character infamously sunk to her death in a bed of quicksand!
In 2003, Nye brought a new character to the fictional Springfield, U.S.A., Carolyn Carruthers, who shared a shameful, retconned history with the town's patriarchs. The storyline was panned and the late Nye's second GL character was quickly written out.
