Soap opera fans can be fickle when it comes to the characters on their favorite shows, especially if there is a recast involved. There are fans that wish a character could be recast because they miss the old actor or actress who played them. Then there are times when an actor or actress simply annoys viewers in the role, and this might have more to do with the character they are portraying than the actor or actress themselves! Alas, below are 12 soap opera characters fans would like to see recast.

12. Days’ Roman Brady

This may seem like an odd recast since actor Josh Taylor has been playing the staple Days of Our Lives (DOOL) character since 1997; however, long-time fans of the show simply cannot relate to Taylor’s portrayal of Roman Brady as they still connect to the actor who originated the role in 1981, Wayne Northrop.

11. Y&R’s Victoria Newman

The same ideology that plagues Roman Brady with fans over at DOOL seems to be occurring with the Young and the Restless’ (Y&R) Victoria Newman. While has been in the role for well over a decade, fans who have watched the show longer seem to still be so connected to Heather Tom, the actress who originated (grown-up) Vicky from 1990 to 2003. Despite the fact that Heinle has won two Daytime Emmy awards for her work on the Y&R, many viewers still don’t see her as Victoria Newman.
