Soap opera fans all have their own favorite characters and couples. Sometimes the saddest thing that can ever happen for audience in the land of daytime drama is when a favorite couple breaks up or a popular character leaves a soap. The bad news is they are gone … for now. The good news? There’s always room for a comeback — even if the character dies! Below are the top nine soap opera stars who have made huge comebacks.
9. Vanessa Marcil
Marcil enjoyed a wonderful soap opera run on General Hospital (GH) from 1992 to 1998 and was one of the most popular characters to ever grace Port Charles. She eventually caught the eye of primetime shows and Marcil was beckoned with other opportunities. She ended up leaving GH in 1998, but then had two huge comebacks. One took place from 2002 to 2003 and another from 2010 to 2011. With Marcil teasing on social media about another GH return, will audiences be entertained with a Brenda Barrett comeback number three? Third time is the charm!
8. Deidre Hall
Dr. Marlena Evans is currently a staple on Days of Our Lives (DOOL) and a legendary soap opera character. Evans has been through it all: affairs, divorces, loved ones passing away, and was even possessed by the Devil at one point in time! Hall’s initial run on DOOL was a solid one, lasting for nine years from 1976 to 1987. While Hall did work on other projects during her four-year hiatus, including starring in the hit NBC drama, Our House, she couldn’t stay away long. She returned to the soap in 1991 and had another great run participating in iconic storylines like Melaswen Island, her love triangle with Roman and John Black, and the paternity issues around her youngest daughter, Belle. While she would leave the show once again in 2009, Hall returned in 2011 and has been entertaining audiences since.
