Entering the world of daytime television can be an incredible break for any actor or actress. Some use soap operas as a stepping stone for prime time television, stage roles, or even film careers. Then, there are those who start off in soap operas, and end up turning a short-term character into a soap opera legend. Below are some fresh faces who emerged onto the soap scene in 2015. Whether they end up becoming Hollywood mega stars, or soap opera royalty, is really up to them. Read on to learn more about the best six soap opera newcomers of 2015.
6. Vivian Jovanni – Ciara Brady – Days of Our Lives
Thanks to soap opera rapid aging syndrome (SORAS), Vivian Jovanni entered the role as Ciara Brady in October of 2015, and has blown Days of Our Lives (DOOL) fans away. Not only does she look a lot like her strong-willed on-screen mom, Hope Brady, she also has similar facial expressions, body movements, and mannerisms. While it is always a bit of shock for fans when a child soap opera character is replaced by a teenager, Jovanni has helped smooth out that transition with her solid performance of Ciara. Now involved in a rape storyline with other SORAS victim, Chase Jennings, Days fans are even more intrigued to see the depths this actress can dig in to.
