7 Minor Soap Opera Characters Who Stole The Show
It’s hard not to get wrapped up in the lives of our favorite soap opera characters. After all, with the many plot twists, romances and adventures they go on, their plights keep us tuned in daily and weekly. The main characters on a soap opera are often the focal point of what goes on in the little town they live in – but what about the supporting characters that add some humor or offer insight into impending storylines? Below is an overview of seven minor soap opera characters who have simply stolen the show (and our hearts)!
7. Faith Newman (Alyvia Alyn Lind) – The Young and the Restless
This cutie-patootie may be small, but she plays a significant role in The Young and the Restless (Y&R). As one of the Newman clan, Alyvia Alyn Lind has been playing the sassy Faith Newman since 2011. The interesting thing about Faith is she is not only cute, smart, and very inquisitive, she’s also wise beyond her years and pretty much has every adult she knows wrapped around her little finger. She certainly steals the show every time she is placed in a scene and always has a sweet anecdote to help anyone around her cope with whatever they are going through. This kid has been through a lot and always seems to shine whenever she hits a daytime screen.
6. Amy Driscoll (Risa Dorken) – General Hospital
Reminiscent of the famous General Hospital (GH) scene stealer of long ago, Amy Vining, Nurse Amy Driscoll made her debut on soap in May of this year, and has been stealing scenes ever since. She’s cute, funny, quite self-involved, knows her gossip and seems to be fitting in very nicely among all other interesting characters in the land of Port Charles. The Amy Driscoll character is refreshing and the perfect addition needed to add a little humor to GH. She’s a scene stealer much like the original Amy, but the only thing that may be missing in Driscoll’s life is a love interest. Here’s to hoping Nurse Amy gets one soon!
