Soap opera fans all have their own favorite characters and couples. Sometimes the saddest thing that can ever happen for audience in the land of daytime drama is when a favorite couple breaks up or a popular character leaves a soap. The bad news is they are gone … for now. The good news? There’s always room for a comeback — even if the character dies! Below are the top nine soap opera stars who have made huge comebacks.
9. Vanessa Marcil
Marcil enjoyed a wonderful soap opera run on General Hospital (GH) from 1992 to 1998 and was one of the most popular characters to ever grace Port Charles. She eventually caught the eye of primetime shows and Marcil was beckoned with other opportunities. She ended up leaving GH in 1998, but then had two huge comebacks. One took place from 2002 to 2003 and another from 2010 to 2011. With Marcil teasing on social media about another GH return, will audiences be entertained with a Brenda Barrett comeback number three? Third time is the charm!
