New characters are introduced into soap operas all the time. Sometimes they can make a huge splash, shake up storylines, add a fresh new personality into the mix, and at times, shock audiences. Then there are other instances where new characters flop, leaving audiences annoyed and frustrated. Below are 12 new soap opera characters who failed to impress fans.

12. Days’ Stefan O. DiMera

Soap opera veteran Christopher Tyler has a slew of General Hospital (GH) fans who miss him on the soap and he made an explosive debut Days of Our Lives (DOOL) recently as the illegitimate son of iconic villain Stefano DiMera. The extremely talented Tyler has done a pretty decent job as Salem’s new public enemy number one; however, with the recent raping of Abigail DiMera, DOOL fans are less than impressed with this character as of late.

11. Days’ Leo Stark

Greg Rikaart recently debuted on DOOL, playing the manipulative Leo Stark. With only some weeks under his belt, fans have been less enthused about the new character and his agenda. This may have more to do with Leo’s current storyline of manipulating fan favorite Sonny Kiriakis and potentially becoming his new love, then the actor or character itself. DOOL audiences feel that Sonny has been through enough, and many just want to see him settled with someone who won’t rip his heart in two.
