10 Soap Opera Politicians Who'd Get Our Vote
No. 7: Grant Harrison, Another World
Dashing, eldest son Grant Harrison (the late Dack Rambo, Mark Pinter) was groomed by his father Spencer (David Hedison) to one day assume the office of President of the United States on Another World. Like many a politician, Grant's love for the ladies almost proved to be his professional undoing.
First there was that sordid ordeal with Sharly, the alternate personality of farm wife Sharlene Hudson (Anna Holbrook); then there was Grant's scandalous involvement with campaign worker (and his brother Ryan's girl!) Vicky Hudson (Jensen Buchanan).
Grant's obsession became even more intense when Vicky bore him a son named Kirkland. Along the way other women caught his eye, Cory sisters Paulina (Judi Evans) and Amanda (Christine Tucci), nutty Cindy (Kim Rhodes), but Grant's desire to possess Vicky and Kirkland remained his constant, driving passion.
The return of Grant and Ryan's (Paul Michael Valley) unhinged mother Justine Kirkland Harrison Duvalier (Victoria Wyndham) added deadly fuel to the inferno that was Grant vs. Vicky and Ryan. Grant ultimately went to prison for killing his baby brother, but don't think a Mark of Cain was enough to keep him down. Once he was sprung, Grant managed to win the race for Bay City's mayor! To think, a simple, stained dress almost took down Bill Clinton.
