Whether you are talking the girl-next-door, hero/heroine, villain or villainess, the police commissioner, or the town’s mayor, each soap opera character brings a unique piece of the puzzle when it comes to daytime drama storylines. While some sparkle more than others, there are also roles within a show that lose their magic after a while. Below are 12 soap opera characters who went from exciting to bbboorrringgg!

12. Y&R’s Lauren Fenmore

Lauren Fenmore is a Young and the Restless (Y&R) character that has been around for decades and has stayed relevant within the soap opera for years now. Could it be a lack of storyline or simply the fact that she has done and seen it all that lands her on this list? Lauren has lacked a special something for many months now.

11. DOOL’s Jennifer Horton

A staple on Days of Our Lives (DOOL) for literally decades, Jennifer Horton was like a little spitfire in her 20s and 30s. As a journalist, she was always searching for that next big story in Salem or embarking on a new adventure. Perhaps it’s the stress of being the rock of the family, or maybe it’s all the craziness going on with her adult children, but Jenn has been a little boring as of late.
