Soap Hub Insiders, each month we spotlight a fellow member to learn about their love of soap operas and how/why it started. Kicking off the month of October, we feature a longtime Soap Hub reader and one of the first members of Insider, Jackie Hambleton. She joins Insider from Canada and has participated in several of our monthly fireside video chats with popular daytime stars. Learn more about your fellow Insider, Jackie with our quick Q&A below! If you are interested in telling your soap story, send an email to [email protected] We love to hear your story and share it with the rest of our Insider members!
What soap operas do you watch?
I watch General Hospital but also used to watch All My Children and Another World and Dark Shadows.
How did you start watching Soaps?
I moved to an area where we only had antenna and only got two channels, but that was long ago. Ever since then, I’ve watched those soaps I mentioned. Interestingly, I got my sister to start watching General Hospital so we are able to talk about it every day!
What do you love about Soap Operas?
I love to see what stories are developing. I also like the people who play the characters and love to see how much they grow.
Have you attended the Soap Hub Fireside chats with soap star?
Yes, I have attended a couple of them and I love how we can not only ask them questions but we learn about them as a person.
What would you like to share with other Insiders?
First and foremost, I am a loyal fan to the soaps I watch and get very disappointed when a longtime character leaves for whatever reason. I have pretty much grown up watching the soaps and I find that now, especially with COVID, how they are a great escape. So I guess I want people to remember me as a true diehard fan and love the new opportunities Soap Hub is giving us to meet these people from our homes via zoom.
Thank you so much Jackie for sharing a bit about yourself and your love of soaps with other Insiders. We truly appreciate our members and want to elevate your soap experience. As mentioned above, if you are interested in being featured, please send an email to [email protected]
