Daytime's 10 Most Insane Recasts!
No. 1: Joan Crawford for Christina Crawford as Joan on The Secret Storm
The most ridonkulous recast in soap history has to be when film legend Joan Crawford subbed for her hospitalized daughter Christina on the now-defunct soap opera The Secret Storm in 1968. Whoever thought America would be dumb enough to buy a 60-year-old woman playing a role generally inhabited by her 29-year-old adopted daughter had to be smoking a little sumthin, sumthin. It made for one helluva chapter in Christina's book Mommie Dearest though! Results: Failed.
