Do you remember running home from school to watch your favorite soap operas? There really wasn't anything better! Today, despite there being an excessive amount of new shows to watch, we'd rather tune in to a re-run of a classic soap like All My Children. Why? Because of the drama, of course! There's nothing more thrilling than watching the guy get the girl, lose her, marry her, and then lose her again.
Another reason we continue to watch soaps is because no matter how many episodes we miss, we can always tune in and understand what's going on. Storylines drag on for so long that it's hard to miss anything, unlike today's TV shows which only have a few episodes per season. And we won't even get into the fact that no one died on a soap — ever! The producers always find a way to bring them back later.
Even though some of our beloved soaps are no longer on TV, the stars we watched on series like Dark Shadows and General Hospital didn't stop working. Many of them eventually moved on to movies, prime-time TV shows, and in some cases, into completely different career fields. So let's take a trip down memory lane and see what our most-loved actors and actresses are up to today.
