Soap opera fans all have their very favorite shows, with characters that they love and always want to see win, and they also have characters they despise. Having said that, it’s always interesting to see some hated characters go through storylines that help them evolve into more likable humans. Below are 12 soap opera characters fans once hated but grew to love.
12. Edward Quartermaine – General Hospital
Sadly, Edward has long passed away; however, he was well-loved by fans who still miss him to this day. Edward started off as a controlling corporate goon, who didn’t have half the heart his wife Lila did. Over the years, the hard-nosed Edward softened up a bit, and while he did huff and puff over some of the things his children and grandchildren did, he evolved into more of a character that offered comedic relieve versus a villain.
