20 (Okay 22!) Oscar Winners Who Appeared on Soaps!
No. 19. Morgan Freeman, Ryan’s Hope and Another World
Whenever a “Before They Were Stars” clip airs featuring 2004 Best Supporting Actor winner Morgan Freeman, snippets of his time on the PBS series The Electric Company are generally showcased, but soap lovers know Freeman was dealing with bubbles long before he was in that bathtub on kid TV! The acclaimed thespian portrayed Cicero Murphy on Ryan’s Hope in 1981 and starred opposite future 227 star Jackée Harry as Roy Bingham on Another World during 1982-84. I wonder if Miss Daisy watched the stories?
