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 the top 15 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.
14. Kassie and James DePaiva
Who else misses One Life to Life (OLTL)? Kassie (who played Blair Cramer) met James (who played Max Holden) on the OLTL set and the two decided to get married in 1996. They share a 20-year-old son together, and while the two no longer work on the same show together, they are still living it up in the land of daytime drama. James can be seen on GH, as the good doctor, David Bensch, while Kassie plays the manipulative Eve Donovan on Days.
