Soap Opera Digest - - CONTENTS -

On GH, Sasha is dup­ing Nina by pass­ing her­self off as her long-lost daugh­ter. Here are other char­ac­ters whoõve suf­fered from im­pos­tor syn­drome.

In 2000,Y&R bad­die Matt Clark (Rick Hearst) slith­ered back into Genoa City with a new face and a new name; call­ing him­self Carter, he in­gra­ti­ated him­self into the lives of his old en­e­mies, Nick and Sharon (Sharon Case).

ALL MY CHIL­DREN’S Con­nie Wilkes (Deb­o­rah Goodrich, l.) was ex­posed in 1983 as a con woman who had sold her­self as Er­ica Kane’s sur­prise half sis, Sil­ver.


DAYS re­vealed in 1990 that Frankie (Billy War­lock, with Melissa Reeves as Jen­nifer) had ac­tu­ally ar­rived in Salem in 1986 with an as­sumed iden­tity; in­stead of a street kid in need of the home the Bradys pro­vided, he was ac­tu­ally François Von Leuschner.

When GH’S Hay­den (Re­becca Budig) came to town in 2015, she was on Ric’s pay­roll, tasked with con­vinc­ing am­ne­siac “Jake” (Billy Miller) that she was his wife, Mrs. Barnes.

In 2003 on ONE LIFE TO LIVE, a pre­sumed-dead Todd (Trevor St. John) re­turned to town af­ter ex­ten­sive plas­tic surgery, pass­ing him­self off as Walker Lau­rence, evil Mitch’s brother. An un­wit­ting Blair (Kassie De­paiva) mar­ried him. (Years later, he turned out not to be Todd, but rather Todd’s brain­washed twin, Vic­tor, but that’s an­other story .... )

LOV­ING’S Ava (Lisa Peluso) was in for a shock in 1988 when she learned that the man she had mar­ried as Clay Alden was ac­tu­ally im­pos­tor Alex(Ran­dolph Man­tooth).

In 1989, it was re­vealed that the woman Stephanie be­lieved was her mi­cro­cephalic daugh­ter An­gela was ac­tu­ally an im­pos­tor, who called her­self Deveney Dixon (Ju­dith Borne).
