Austin Peck, ATWT (Brad Snyder) – could anyone else have topped this list? Who knew the beautiful Mr. Peck had acting chops? He’s given Brad not only his bite, but layers of insecurity and vulnerability never seen from character or actor before. Bravo.
Farah Fath, OLTL (Gigi Morasco) – Farah shines as the plucky single mother helping to hide Marcie on the run. She’s sassy, smart and soulful. Who knew? Yes, I know Luke- you.
Kirsten Storms, GH (Maxie Jones) - Ok, what did Days do to these actors to hide their ability? Third alumni in a row- and what a change a show and the writing makes. From average hssy to sharp tongued vixen, we've loved Kirsten performances over and over.
Caitlin Van Zandt, GL (Ashlee Wolfe) – Precariously close to becoming a caricature, Ashlee was shrill and annoying until GL’s writers saw Caitlin’s talents and let her give the audience a real treat. A REAL girl with REAL problems. We love her.
Melissa Archer, OLTL (Natalie Buchanan) – Thank you soap gods for Ron Carlivati! He’s given us sassy yet vulnerable Natalie back!
Greg Vaughn, GH (Lucky Spencer) – The gorgeous Mr. Vaughn plays angry and sexy very well. Thank goodness we’re getting to see it.
Shelley Hennig, Days (Stephanie Johnson) – Shame on Days for having the talented Ms. Henning play the airhead Stephanie too long. It took a secret rape for her talent to shine.
Rachel Melvin, Days (Chelsea Brady) – Who knew a year ago that Chelsea would be as liked as much as she used to be hated? Melvin gave Chelsea layers of guilt, remorse and sincerity we hadn’t seen before.
Ewa de Cruz, ATWT (Vienna Hyatt) - much like GL's Ashlee, Vienna could have easily been a cliche. The gorgeous and talented Ms. Cruz showed what she was made of in her comedic and sometimes wistful turn as the heiress in love for the first time.
Eddie Alderson, OLTL (Matthew Buchanan) - Eddie is perfect reflection of what Bo and Nora's kid should be. Inquisitive, sarcastic yet sweet.
