The actresses on Days of Our Lives play important roles on the show — they are the mothers, grandmothers, sisters, BFFs, wives, and provide scandal as the mistresses of the daytime world. What would Days of Our Lives (DOOL) be without the lovely ladies that have graced Salem over the years? There would be no romance, trouble-making or drama, that’s for sure! There have been some amazing actresses on the set of DOOL over the past (almost) 51 years since the show has begun airing and we’ve decided to honor these ladies with a list of the 10 best DOOL actresses in the history of Days of Our Lives!
10. Melissa Reeves
For over three decades now, Melissa Reeves has wowed DOOL fans with her portrayal of Jennifer Deveraux. Playing a good girl with a heart of gold, Jenn may be best known as one half of the J&J super couple (with Jack) and her never-die attitude when it comes to good deeds and doing what’s right. Jenn has struggled with addiction as of late and fans have watched her grieve over the devastating loss of her daughter Abigail (even though we all that Abigail is not dead). As a staple of DOOL over the recent years, Reeves has been acknowledged with a well deserved Daytime Emmy nomination in 1992 in the Younger Actress category.Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com
