And now I shall blog about soap operas.
I am saddened by the passing of legendary actress Frances Reid at the age of 95. If you don’t know who that is, that’s probably good for you! That means you didn’t spend an unmentionable number of hours watching soap operas years ago. (Or you just didn’t watch Days of Our Lives.) (Or you don’t pay attention to the actors’ names.)
Frances Reid was an accomplished actress prior to commencing her most well-known role in 1965, but she is legendary for having portrayed Days of Our Lives matriarch Alice Horton for more than 40 years. Soap characters and actors come and go, but Frances Reid on DAYS was comforting constant. Both her character and off-screen persona were class acts.
