Wow! This was a fantastic week to be a soap fan. It’s been a VERY long time since we’ve been this excited about all four shows. While not every story is a hit, there were several incredible performances this last week that we just couldn’t pick one Performer of the Week! Instead, we decided to take the opportunity to highlight the phenomenal work this week with the Top 10 Powerful Performances of the Week. Check out who had us on the edge of our seat and reaching the tissue box.



Kristian Alfonso (Hope, Days of Our Lives)



When I think of the most powerful performances one of the first that comes to mind is Alfonso’s heartbreaking portrayal of Hope after the death of her son Zack. That storyline was nearly fifteen years ago now (how is that even possible?!) and still to this day whenever Hope mentions Zack you can see her pain. So, when Hope was pleading with Eve to reveal where Ciara was knowing that she might not ever see her daughter again...that left a lump in my throat. Hope believing that she might lose another child so senselessly left her full of desperation and Kristian plays that emotion just so well. 


Kassie DePaiva (Eve, Days of Our Lives)



I’ve said it a hundred times by now. Kassie DePaiva is one of the best actresses in the history of daytime. She can and has played it all perfectly on-screen but there is just something so powerful about her performance as Eve. It stands out among her incredible body of work. Eve is a flawed character that this medium would consider a “love her or hate her” persona. Though, even if you don’t love her there is no denying that Eve’s grief over losing her daughter is raw, warranted, and believable. Kassie is a master of having the ability to pull you into the web of tangled emotions that Eve is living with and to have you feel them too. 


Mark Grossman (Adam, The Young and the Restless)



Even though I feel like we’ve only just scratched the surface of this storyline, Mark Grossman has knocked it out of the park! Adam is the definition of grey character in soap operas. He has always lived and battled with the idea that he has this innate darkness within him. Now to learn that he killed a man when he was just a child has brought those fears to the forefront. Was he just a boy protecting his mother? Or was he just waiting for the opportunity to let that darkness come to the surface? Mark has brilliantly played Adam’s anguish as his memories of the incident came flooding back and we are excited to see what happens next.  


Victoria Konefal (Ciara, Days of Our Lives)



Color me impressed! From her concern about Ben to the fear of losing her life. Victoria Konefal played Ciara’s roller-coaster range of emotions with perfection this week. Stuck in the battle within herself to try and help Ben or to hide from him as he was losing his own fight with sanity. We as viewers were scared with her and for her as the scenes went on. Brava!


Wally Kurth (Ned, General Hospital)



We just love Wally Kurth! And while we loved his scenes with Alison Sweeney on Days of Our Lives, it was his moving scenes on General Hospital that lands him on this list. Ned is dealing with the aftermath of his daughter’s brutal attack. Having recently kicked her out of the house after a fight over a business deal, he is reeling over the fact that the last words he said to his daughter were in anger. Wally played Ned’s regret and distress with incredible poignancy. 


Briana Lane (Brook Lynn, General Hospital)



Stepping into a role temporarily is already hard enough but having to step into a role in the middle of a difficult storyline is a whole new ballgame. Briana Lane proved that you don’t really need dialogue to portray emotions. Without a word we knew how much Brook Lynn was struggling with her attack at the hands of Nelle and when she smiled knowing that she helped save Wiley...that warmed our hearts. She has done such a phenomenal job as Brook Lynn. We have our fingers crossed that we might see her back on the soap in the future as another character! 

Chloe Lanier (Nelle, General Hospital)



Chloe Lanier plays one hell of a villain and she proved that once again as Nelle was confronted by Michael and Carly after kidnapping Wiley. She’s just so good! While Nelle’s plans are purely evil, her motives are somewhat warranted at times. So, whenever she goes head to head with the Corinthos family it’s hard to not get excited. Chloe’s on-screen chemistry with Laura Wright’s Carly made for some great television as the two women fought to the death...possibly. We have a sneaking suspicion that we’ll be seeing more of Nelle in the future. 


Heather Tom (Katie, The Bold and the Beautiful)




The multiple Emmy-winner is one of the best to ever grace this genre. She can take any quality of material and spin it into gold. This week Tom’s Katie finally stood up for herself and kicked Bill to the curb, realizing that it didn’t matter how much they loved each other. He had hurt and betrayed her one too many times. It's nice to see a woman put herself first! Heather has the ability to break our hearts with just a look and she certainly did that this week. 


Robert Scott Wilson (Ben, Days of Our Lives)




I have to say that as a life-long soap opera fan I haven’t been blown away too many times by a performance, but I was absolutely blown away by Rob this week! Ben’s battle to keep his sanity through the brainwashing had everyone on the edge of their seat. At times, it even felt like a horror movie! One second he was menacing and the next he was full of desperation. Wilson was nothing short of phenomenal! That was Emmy-winning material!


Laura Wright (Carly, General Hospital)



Our final choice for the week was Laura Wright. Like we mentioned before her on-screen chemistry with Chloe Lanier makes the story of these adversaries just wonderful to watch. Even though Carly hates Nelle she still tried to appeal to her human side. Carly’s confused and emotional state as Nelle went over the cliff was lovely to see. Did she despise this woman? Yes. But she also relates to her on so many levels. If she changed maybe Nelle could have too. Also, knowing that she couldn’t save her grandson’s mother has to take its toll. The fight scene was great too!


Congratulations to everyone selected as Power Performers! You are what makes this genre so worthwhile.
