Do you think there is a lot of turnover in soaps?!

Question: Do you think there is a lot of turnover in soaps!?
if so, why is that and why do they keep bringing back characters from the dead - I thought dead was deadWww@Enter-QA@Com

First off, in the poll, Maria Maximiliana "Maxie" Jones 100%!. I can't at all stand Starr Manning!. And as far as the coming-back-from-the-dead issue, it all goes back to the old 80s show Dallas on CBS!. During the shows 7th season, key character Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy) was killed off after the actor left the show!. After low ratings after Bobby's death, they coaxed Duffy into coming back!. That's one reason why they do it; the shows take a loss when the characters leave, and it's always easy to explain away their death!. It does get ridiculous when characters at least ten times, like Stefano DiMera (Days) and Helena Cassadine (GH)!. Sometimes they use them as plot twists: someone dies, their spouse goes to remarry, but the 'dead' person shows up, claiming that they're still married, so the widow can't marry!. Things like that!. Sometimes returning from the dead is a positive thing, like with Jack Deveraux (Days), Stefano (Days), Helena (GH), Taylor Hayes (B&B), Josh Madden (AMC), and Alexandria Meade (Ugly Betty)!. I agree, though; it is getting a little nuts!.Www@Enter-QA@Com

it's a relatively common plot twist on soaps to "revive" the dead , or discover they had a twin!.!.!.!.!. usually involving a performer and/or character that was popular !.!.!.!. sometimes it works , but sometimes special something can't be recaptured because of other elements ; different writers and character /performers that don't quite mesh!.

now there is a lot of cost cutting in US soaps!.!.!.so it could be an issue of cost effectiveness to recast roles with less expensive /experienced performers!.Www@Enter-QA@Com


They do that on a LOT of soaps!. I'm sick of this whole Stefano Dimera the "Phoenix" thing!. I used to like him but now he is annoying me & it's time for John Black or his own son Elvis to kill him once & for all!

Sorry I'm a DAYS fan so I don't know who these people are! Except the actress that plays Maxie was Belle on Days & I hated her b/c she was so goody two shoes!.Www@Enter-QA@Com
