Soap Opera’s 9 Worst Characters Of All Time
There have been some legendary and iconic soap opera characters who’ve graced the daytime drama television screens over the years. The evil Stefano DiMera wreaked havoc on Salem residents for over three decades on Days of Our Lives (DOOL), while Victor Newman still rules over Genoa City on the Young and the Restless (Y&R), and who could ever forget the beautiful love story between Luke and Laura Spencer on General Hospital (GH)! Alas, these characters have worked while many on soaps simply haven’t. As such, below are nine of the worst soap opera characters of all time.
9. DOOL’s Claire Brady
She was cute when she was little, but once the offspring of Shawn and Belle Brady experienced Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome (SORAS) she became entitled, bratty, manipulative, and whiny. Who knew? Overall, it seems that these second-generation children of DOOL super couples simply don’t have the same adventurous genes that their parents did back in the day.
8. Y&R’s Noah Newman
It’s sad that Noah Newman made this list because he is a really good guy that always does the right thing. But, unfortunately, that is all that this character is really about. There’s nothing intriguing about Noah, no depth or diversity which makes it not surprising that Noah has taken a secondary role when it comes to storylines that revolve around Genoa City.
