SOAP Question: If you were invited to an all-soap Halloween Party, which character would you go as?

Since many of you will be attending Halloween bashes over the weekend, On-Air On-Soaps took to our Twitter and Facebook accounts yesterday and posed this question to our followers, “If you were invited to an all-soap Halloween Party, which character would you go as?”

And, we have to commend the humor and cleverness of the fans and the industry who chimed in to give us their thoughts.   Here below is just a partial list! Some of which we thought were brilliant!

Luke Snyder. All I’d need is a striped polo – and my own Reid Oliver, of course! 🙂

I’d go as Jason and Carly as conjoined twins and then I would shoot myself in each face.

Laura in Shadybrook … House coat, blonde wig, no makeup with a rocking chair hooked to my butt 😉

I would pay homage to the late, great…Sally Spectra.

Roxy from OLTL that would be a fun costume! You would also have to speak Roxy.

Helena Cassadine…is there anything scarier??? Marlena Possessed or Timmy the midget guy from Passions.

I’d go as the huge creepy ATWT lamp-off the living room at Fairwinds. It looked to me like it could grow “pod people”.

Last year I went as Michelle Bauer Santos. I had to wear a name tag (showing people at work a clip helped)

David Vickers the Dog… Complete with life size Tina and Baby Liam’s paternity test.

From OLTL – Tess, Jessica’s alter! …or Madame Delfina, love that lady!…or Erica Kane!

Opal Gardner back in the day!!!

Whoever is dating Sonny Corinthos at the time!!!!!

I’d go as Myrtle from AMC. Loved her!

However, one of our favorites was posted by actress, Maura West herself who said she would go as Jack Snyder! Now, let us know below which soap character you would go as?

I do not enjoy drag whatsoever (meaning – doing it – I enjoy RuPaul’s Drag Race as much as everyone else)….however, I would have to go as Carly Tenney. Simply one of the best soap opera characters of all time. And so much fun you could have with it!

One person stands head above the others (for me) Felicia Gallant (AW) from the 80’s – big hats, flowing jackets, huge clutches and that wonderful short hair. They don’t write characters like Felicia these days!

AMC Alum Sarah Michelle Gellar Reflecting on Her Time on Soaps: “Anything I Can Do to Continue the Legacy I’m Very Proud Of”

Daytime fans knew of Sarah Michelle Gellar her way before her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days, when she stepped on to the small screen as Erica’s (Susan Lucci) troubled daughter Kendall Hart on ABC’s All My Children. 

Gellar played the role from 1993 to 1995, and made a brief return in 2011 as the show came to its conclusion on ABC. Additionally, Sarah won a Daytime Emmy for her performance in the Outstanding Younger Actress category in 1995.

Sarah has partnered with Lysol for their brand’s Disinfecting Wipes “Buy One, Donate One” program. where now through September 26, whenever a pack of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes is purchased, another pack will automatically be donated to an under-resourced school through the Kids In Need Foundation.

The program is aimed to help curb the spread of illness-causing germs in schools this back-to-school season, a total of up to 16 million packs of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes will be donated to Title I schools across the country.

The program is the latest component of Lysol’s HERE for Healthy Schools initiative. Started in 2019 with the mission to help curb the spread of preventable illness and to help kids miss less school so they are able to learn, grow and thrive, HERE for Healthy Schools has provided educational materials for students and Lysol disinfecting supplies for educators and administrators to more than 49,000 schools across the country. This year, HERE for Healthy Schools is focused on helping to protect children, educators and parents as they make their big return to in-person learning in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking with TV Insider on the partnership, Gellar recalled her time on the soaps and how it changed her career and outlook, noting: “it was the training ground for the rest of my career.”

She went on to say: “I made incredible friends at that time and I learned incredible work habits, and soap operas are an intense amount of work, and I’m incredibly grateful for that time and the people that I met.  We live in a world now where my kids don’t even really know what a soap opera is, so anything I can do to continue the legacy I’m very proud of.”

So, do you remember Sarah’s time on AMC? What do you think of her thoughts on her time on the soaps? Comment below.
