What if you took the medical drama from "General Hospital," mixed it with family, politics, and class struggle, and threw in a neighborhood bar for good measure? You'd get "Ryan's Hope," the mega-popular half-hour soap that aired on ABC Daytime from 1975 until 1989.
There's a special breed of "Ryan's Hope" fan -- you know who you are (and we totes count ourselves among you!) -- who couldn't get enough of the trials and tribulations of the Ryan and Coleridge families, or the shenanigans that went down every day at Ryan's Bar or Riverside Hospital.
We may currently air rebroadcasts of "Ryan's Hope" every morning ... but do you know where some of your favorite "Hope" stars are now? Well, we aim to please here at SOAPnet HQ -- so we've put together a slideshow of some of the famous "Hope" actors who've either gone on to acclaim ... or infamy. And keep checking back -- you never know what we might find in our vast underground vaults.
