Soap opera fans all have their favorite characters and couples. So, when a favorite couple breaks up, or a popular character leaves a soap, viewers can feel devastated! While the bad news is that they are gone, the good news is, there’s always room for a comeback! Below are some soap opera stars who have made huge comebacks.
13. Alison Sweeney
In 1993, actress Alison Sweeney entered the role of Sami Brady and the land of Salem changed forever! Sami is a dynamic character who’s always walked a fine line between good and just plain terrible. In early 2014, Sweeney announced that she was leaving DOOL to focus on her family and another primetime project she had been working on, The Biggest Loser. She couldn’t stay away for too long, because in 2017, Sweeney would reprise her infamous Sami role, and has had major stints on the show over the years since. If Days fans can’t have Brady in Salem full-time, it’s still nice having her pop in every year for a least a few months!
