Daytime Confidential's Top 10 Soap Newcomers of 2010
No. 3: Meghann Fahy, One Life to Live
You can pretty much set your clock to a One Life to Live psycho going bat poop crazy just in time for Sweeps. In recent years, there was that whacked out, down low politician, Margaret Cochran, Stacy Morasco, etc. It’s hard to keep them straight, which is why when the show manages to cast a phenomenal performer to portray one of their escaped and/or future mental patients, it can make all the difference. That’s what happened in 2010 with the character of Hannah played by Meghann Fahy. No matter how out there Hannah’s obsession for Starr’s (Kristen Alderson) baby daddy Cole (Brandon Buddy) became, the graduate of the Marcia Cross School for Soap Opera Sickos, played the material for everything it was worth. Watching OLTL in 2010, you truly believed Hot Mess Hannah was so itchy in her twitchy for Cole’s human hockey stick she was willing to kill the mother of his child, said child and a Ford boy to get him. We can’t believe we’re saying this, but we wouldn’t exactly mind another visit from Hannah, or her fantastic portrayer, in the near future, but only if she’s learned how to hold a gun just a tad bit more menacingly. Hey, nobody’s perfect!
