Recently, We Love Soaps (http://www.welovesoaps.net) posted their listing of the 50 Greatest Soap Actresses of All Time. As a soap viewer of over 30 years - I have watched at one time or another most every soap within that time frame. I agree with many (most) of their inclusions, but I often disagree with the order of their rankings. So during many of those late nights when I couldn't sleep, I came up with my own list. (I have a list of men too... so keep watching!)

Here's part 2 --

31. Kristin Alfonso -- Kristin is best known for her role as Hope Brady on Days of our Lives, a role she has portrayed on and off since 1983. Along with Peter Reckell's Bo - the couple are considered a "super couple" in the history of soaps.

32. Ilene Kristen -- Ilene has played many wonderfully complex characters throughout her career -- starting with Delia Reid on Ryan's Hope. She's currently Roxy on One Life to Live.

33. Victoria Wyndham -- Victoria will always be known as the wonderful Rachel Cory on Another World working opposite Douglass Watson's Mac.

34. Mary Kay Adams -- Nasty through and through - Mary Kay shined in the role of India von Halkein on Guiding Light.

35. Louise Sorel -- Louise has portrayed many memorable roles. She's currently Vivian Alamain on Days of Lives, but she will go done in history as Augusta Lockridge on Santa Barbara.

36. Suzanne Rogers -- A Days of our Lives staple since 1973 - Suzanne's portrayal of Maggie Horton has seen it's ups and downs - and now she assumes the role of matriarch.

37. Ruth Warrick -- Ruth portrayed Phoebe Tyler on All My Children from 1970 until her death in 2005. Phoebe and Langley were classic comedy, drama, and emotion all rolled into one.

38. Julia Barr -- Best known for her character Brooke English on All My Children, she also has been on One Life to Live and Ryan's Hope.

39. Andrea Evans -- Ahhh … Tina Lord … One Life To Live's conniving, schemer, wickedly wonderful bad girl. Andrea will always be known for this complex character.

40. Jess Walton -- The fabulous Jess Walton currently portrays Jill Abbott on Young and Restless, but she was also on Capitol as Kelly Harper.
