True friendships are important commodities – even for the most famous of celebrities and the most popular of soap stars. And picking the right person to connect with is almost as important as picking the right person to share a common area with – and just as daunting a task.
Which Soap Star Was It?
All of these actors are either an alum of a long-ago classic – like All My Children – or they currently star in, or are alums of one the four remaining daytime dramas – The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and The Young and the Restless. However, only one of them can claim that they shared close quarters with future This Is Us star Chrissy Metz.
But who can that actor be? Was it Winsor Harmon (ex-Del Henry, AMC), Linsey Godfrey (ex Caroline Spencer, BB), Chandler Massey (Will Horton, DAYS), or Justin Hartley (ex-Adam Newman, YR)?
Harmon never split a rent check with Metz. But he did offer his couch to Mark Consuelos, an act which provided the former BB star a front-row seat to the blooming romance between his roommate and Kelly Ripa.
During the early years of his tenure at DAYS, Massey roomed with his friend and co-star Casey Deidrick, who originated the part of DiMera scion Chad. However, he never shared digs with Metz.
They’ve played siblings on This Is Us since the fall of 2016 and they’ve cultivated a strong friendship. However, Hartley and Metz never lived together in the real world.
Godfrey and Metz are lifelong friends and Florida natives who lived in the same apartment for years while both were nascent actresses trying to make a name for themselves in the biz.
In an interview with Celebrity Page, Metz remembered sharing, “lots of laughs,” with the future daytime diva, and she confessed to watching Godfrey work on DAYS whenever she has free time and she also copped to a desire to, “visit her at the set!”
So, if you guessed that the soap star in question was Linsey Godfrey, then you were absolutely correct!
