Who Did This Expert Little Hugger Grow Up To Play On The Soaps?


They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but we wonder what good is a picture when you can’t recognize the subject? Above is a snapshot of a future star of soaps, but can you guess who this expert hugger grew up to be?

Star Of The Soaps

Obviously this young woman (now all grown up) is either currently starring in, or is an alum of, one of the four remaining daytime dramas – The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and The Young and the Restless – but that’s probably not enough of a hint.

So try these on for size. The soap star in question was bitten by the acting bug at an early age, and she graduated from an accelerated performing arts high school. She spent a week working as a guest model on The Price Is Right, and she is well known in gaming circles for her work as a voice-over artist. She is also a fitness and yoga enthusiast and she is romantically involved with a fellow thespian.

But just who can she be? Is this a photograph of Courtney Hope (Sally Spectra, BB), True O’Brien (ex-Paige Larson, DAYS), Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber Baldwin, GH), or Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman, YR)?

True O’Brien

In her spare time, O’Brien enjoys working out, kickboxing, and doing yoga. She has been a working actress since the age of 5 and she has been dating her former DAYS co-star, Casey Moss (ex-JJ Deveraux), since 2015. But O’Brien isn’t today’s featured star.

Rebecca Herbst

Sure, Herbst has been acting since she was 6 years old. And yes, she did indeed marry one of her fellow GH stars – Michael Saucedo (ex-Juan Santiago). But she isn’t today’s mystery child.

Melissa Ordway

And neither is Ordway. This in spite of her marriage to actor Justin Gaston (whom she met on the set of the 2011 film Escapee) and the fact that she spent the week of October 7, 2015 working as a model on The Price Is Right.

Courtney Hope

Daytime fans know her as BB’s rascally Sally Spectra. However, fans of the video games Quantum Break and Control know her as Beth Wilder and Jesse Faden respectively. And eagle-eyed viewers of The Price Is Right might recognize her from her five-day stint as a guest model.

Hope knew that she wanted to be an actress when she was a mere 3 years old, however, her family didn’t take her ambitions seriously until she was about 12. After much cajoling, Hope was able to convince her parents to allow her to enroll in a performing arts high school, which she graduated from when she was 15!

In her spare time, Hope works as a fitness instructor as she loved to indulge in kickboxing classes and yoga. She has been dating fellow soap star Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos, GH) since 2016.

So, if you guessed that the future star of soaps seen in the image above was Courtney Hope, then you were absolutely correct!
