SPOILED ROTTEN: 10 of Daytime's Best Loved Poor Little Rich Boys!
(No. 3) Mason Capwell, Santa Barbara
Not since Hamlet had there been a fictional young man with as many daddy issues as Santa Barbara’s Mason Capwell (Lane Davies). As the eldest son of mogul C.C. Capwell (Jed Allan), you’d have thought Mason would have been handed the keys to the kingdom. Too bad they already belonged to his younger brother Channing!
Not even Channing’s death—at the accidental hands of his own mother Sophia (Judith McConnell)—aided Mason in taking the blonde Adonis’ place in their fathers’ heart; nor did the revelations that Channing was gayer than a picnic basket, or that he wasn’t even C.C.’s real son! If you think all of this was bad, Mason's first love Mary (Harley Jane Kozak) was killed when a giant "C" fell on her! Is it any wonder Mason Capwell was a poor little rich boy who loved his liquor almost as much as he came to love Julia Wainright (Nancy Lee Grahn)?
