November is upon us, the month we celebrate Thanksgiving and a number of popular daytime soap stars’ birthdays. Soap Hub has compiled a list of all the dates so you can send your favorite actors and actresses your best wishes via X (formerly Twitter) and Instagram. Or you could go the old-school route and mail them a good old-fashioned card.
Soap Stars Celebrating In November
If you are a Scorpio (October 23 – November 21), here are some of your traits. Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac and is a water sign symbolized by the Scorpion. Scorpio is co-ruled by Mars, the planet of action, sex, strength, and courage, and Pluto, the planet of transformation, the underworld, life, death, and rebirth. If Scorpio had to be described with just one word, that word would be intensity! Other traits include the ability to dive into deep emotions, personal magnetism, confidence, spot-on intuition, and being extremely goal-oriented.
Scorpios can size people up accurately. It is unsettling to others of lesser intensity, which sometimes causes instant fear of Scorpios…or stirs up feelings of jealousy. For those who can handle the intensity, it inspires instant loyalty and trust. If you give a Scorpio your trust, you will have a loyal friend for life. A warrior on your side. As a sexual partner, they can take you to places that no one else can!
A couple of CBS soap stars start the month toasting their birthdays on November 2. Kate Linder (Esther Valentine, The Young and the Restless) turns 76, while Sean Kanan (Deacon Sharpe, The Bold and the Beautiful) turns 57. The next day, Chloe Lanier (ex-Nelle Benson, General Hospital) turns another year older.
Next up, Emme Rylan (ex-Lulu Spencer, GH) turns 43, while B&B’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan) turns 48. And they both celebrate on November 4. B&B alum Pierson Fodé (ex-Thomas Forrester) celebrates his natal day on November 6. He’s turning 32.
Over at Days of our Lives, leading man Robert Scott Wilson (Alex Kiriakis) is going the cake and candles route, too. He turns 36 on November 9.
A beloved GH/DAYS veteran, Denise Alexander (Lesley Webber; ex-Susan, DAYS), marks #84 on November 11.
The very next day, November 12, Vincent Irizarry (ex-David Hayward, All My Children; ex-Deimos Kiriakis, DAYS; et al.) turns 64, and Kelly Krueger (ex-Mac, Y&R; Eva, B&B) turns 42.
The revelry continues for two Y&R stars as Judith Chapman (Gloria Abbott Bardwell) turns 72 on November 15. Meanwhile, Tricia Cast, who’ll soon be returning to the soap as Nina Webster, turns 57 on November 16. That same day, a missing-in-action DAYS actor has a birthday, too, and it’s a milestone. Casey Moss (ex-JJ Deveraux) is turning The Big 3-0.
Another Y&R co-star, Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott), will be in party mode on November 20. He’s turning 47.
Also blowing out candles this month are soap stars from GH past and present, like Brook Kerr (Portia Robinson), who is celebrating a milestone by turning 50, and Ryan Carnes (ex-Lucas Jones), who turns 35 — both on November 21.
If you are a Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21), here are some of your traits. Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac and is a fire sign symbolized by the Archer (half-man, half-horse centaur). Sagittarians are unique among the astrology signs for their brilliant mesh of passion, curiosity, intensity, charisma, and adaptability. They dare to seek answers and knowledge where others fear to tread. They are fearless in their quest for secret revelations and knowledge.
Sagittarius is a mutable sign known for its flexibility and ability to shift gears on a dime. They love to travel, adventure, seek different cultures and terrains, take risks, and explore religion and spirituality along the way. Their ruling planet is Jupiter, the planet of luck, expansion, and abundance. The essence of the go big or go home philosophy. And it keeps watch over them as they bravely dive into their insatiable search for information and thrill-seeking expeditions. You will find many gifted storytellers, creatives, artists, and entertainers under this sign.
In love, they don’t have a “type.” Sagittarians like different things about different people, whether it be a mental, physical, or spiritual tease from that particular potential partner, which can often leave a trail of broken hearts for those looking for a long-term relationship. Another negative trait is their brutal honesty, or what one would call “blurting,” which creates many misunderstandings, communication problems, and hurt feelings in their wake. They are often forgiven quickly because of their overall optimistic personality.
On November 22, former soap star Olivia Rose Keegan (ex-Claire Brady, DAYS) turns 24, while another daytime alum, Winsor Harmon (ex-Thorne Forrester, B&B), turns 60.
A longtime DAYS villain has a big birthday this year. George DelHoyo (ex-Orpheus) turns 70 on November 23. On November 25, former B&B star Rome Flynn (ex-Zende Forrester Dominguez) turns 32. Beloved soap veteran Marcy Walker (ex-Liza Colby, All My Children; ex-Eden Capwell, Santa Barbara; and ex-Tangie Hill, Guiding Light) turns 62 on November 26.
The month wraps up with celebrations for three who have spent time in Genoa City. Gina Tognoni (ex-Phyllis Summers) turns 50 on November 28, Jacob Aaron Gaines turns another year older on November 29, and Christel Khalil (Lily Winters) turns 36 on November 30.
