    Days has 29 contract castmembers…for the sake of this thread, let’s say Days has to slash its budget and reduce its contract cast to 20. Who would you cut?
    Rules: 8 contract cast members must be cut. You can choose to have 8 characters written off entirely, or you may choose up to 3 to move to recurring status (the remaining 5 are written out).
    For everyone’s sake, I’m removing Alice from the list so no one has to be the jerk that fires Frances Reid. So there are 28 people below, and 8 must go. Who are they?

    Hope

    @EET

    Days – 29 contract, 21 recurring
    AMC- 26 Contract, 10 recurring
    ATWT- 24 contract, 17 recurring
    B&B- 21 contract, 19 recurring
    GH- 27 contract, 34 recurring
    OLTL- 33 contract, 19 recurring
    Y&R- 32 contract, 15 recurring.

    (all numbers are subject to change, use this as a rough idea, this information was created using wiki list of current contracted actors)

    Whats scary is when you compare it to the international soaps

    UK-

    Eastenders- 54 contract, 12 recurring, 8 named extras
    Coronation street- 60 contract, 8 recurring
    Emmerdale 68 contract
    Hollyoaks- 56 contract, 11 recurring

    Australian soaps-
    Home and away – 22 contract
    Neighbours -22 contract, 10 recurring

    New Zeland soap-
    Shortland Street – 21 contract, 9 recurring

    All i have to say is DANG the uk loves them some actors, and did i mention that all of these are 30 minute soaps?
