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 in the past and fans have watched her grieve over the devastating loss of her daughter, Abigail (even though she’s since turned up alive). Reeves was acknowledged with a well deserved Daytime Emmy nomination in 1992 in the Younger Actress category, and recently made a “Christmas miracle” happen when she returned to Salem in time for festivities.
