No. 5: Angie Hubbard, All My Children
Debbi Morgan’s return to Pine Valley as Angie, with the relaunch of All My Children, has nearly erased all memory of the YoHarmony debacle on The Young and the Restless. This summer we watched as Angie searched for answers in her daughter’s kidnapping. We saw her grapple with the awful truth of Cassandra’s (Saleisha Stowers) rape and drugging when her beloved daughter was returned to her arms.
