When it comes to the happenings in soap operas, love is always in the air, as couples fall in and out of love on a weekly (or sometimes daily) basis. Go behind the scenes of the most popular daytime soap operas, such as The Young and the Restless (Y&R) and Bold and the Beautiful, and you’ll see many examples of real-life couples who have found love on the set, proving once again that at times life can imitate art. Below are some real-life soap opera couples, with quite a few finding love on the set of Y&R.
15. Lynn Herring and Wayne Northrop
Lynn Herring’s is well-known for the funny and quirky character she has long-played on GH, Lucy Coe. Meanwhile, her hubby Wayne Northrop is a soap opera star in his own right, playing two incredible DOOL roles over the years, Roman Brady and Alex North. These two daytime drama actors didn’t meet on a set, rather they were in the same acting class in 1980 and got hitched one year later. Northrop and Herring have two boys and own a cattle ranch in Madera County.
