7 Soap Opera Characters Who Need New Storylines
If day-to-day life for normal everyday people can turn into too much of a routine, the same can be said for our favorite soap opera characters. Much like the audiences that adore them, soap opera characters can sometimes hit a plateau when it comes to their characters and it can affect their storylines. Most of the time they simply require a ‘pick-me-up’ to get them back on track — whether it’s a new plot twist or perhaps a new love interest, below are seven soap opera characters in need of a new storyline.
7. Molly Lansing – General Hospital
General Hospital (GH) fans have literally watched sweet and smart Molly Lansing grow up before their very eyes. Actress Haley Pullos entered the role in 2009 as a little girl at the age of eleven, and seven years later she has turned into a lovely young women and accomplished actress. Molly has done a lot in Port Charles since she landed and, with her family roots (i.e. mom Alexis, dad Rick Lansing, not to mention Uncle Sonny), she’s been connected to some pretty interesting storylines over the years. Still, Molly is all grown up and her teenage years are clearly behind her. Perhaps it’s time for ‘little Molly’ to be thrown into some more adult-like storylines or maybe even given a new love interest.
6. J.J. Deveraux – Days of Our Lives
J.J. Deveraux flew into Salem with a pretty intense storyline about three years ago and has since been in multiple plots that have kept Days of Our Lives (DOOL) fans tuned into his interesting character. He’s been involved with drugs, had run-ins with the police, been caught up in love triangles and affairs –J.J. has undoubtedly been a busy bee since he returned to DOOL in 2013. As he straightened out, which was a good thing considering his mom Jennifer Deveraux was losing her mind – it’s also been somewhat of a bad thing for the J.J. character because now his storylines have also slowed down as of late. Sure, he’s been there for his mom during her pill-popping addiction and helped sister Abigail with the Ben Rogers fiasco, her pregnancy, and oh-so much more. Still, perhaps it’s time for J.J. once again to be given a fresh storyline, one that will take him out of the shadows of his family and place the focus on him once again.
