Drake Hogestyn has played the iconic mystery man known as John Black for decades now and Alison Sweeney’s is best known for her infamous Sami Brady character.

Before Greg Vaughn stepped into the role in 2012, Jensen Ackles played Eric Brady on DOOL. He was rolled up in all the Salem teenage drama when he entered the role in 1998. Ackles would move on from soaps in 2002 to join the world of primetime where he’s been on shows like Dark Angel, Dawson’s Creek, Smallville, and Supernatural.
