While working on a soap opera sometimes isn’t the most lucrative gig in Hollywood, it does offer experience, a steady paycheck, and contract negotiation power for those actors and actresses who become quite popular with the fans. Veterans of this industry know all too well that starting off on a daytime drama might mean crappy pay; however, staying the long haul can result in a huge payoff. Below are the richest soap opera stars in 2019.
12. Finola Hughes
Estimated Net Worth $8 Million. Kicking the list off with a soap opera icon, the talented and beautiful Finola Hughes. She’s been playing General Hospital’s Anna Devane for well over three decades now, and has become a key and pivotal player on the daytime drama. While Hughes is a legend in the land of Port Charles (and Pine Valley for a few years when she was on All My Children), viewers may also recall Finola’s work as Laura in the 1983 movie Staying Alive, the sequel to John Travolta’s highly popular Saturday Night Fever flick.
