2010 has a banner year for WE LOVE SOAPS TV. We have enjoyed bringing you the hottest news stories, deepest interviews, classic clips, historical articles, and cutting edge indie soaps, 365 days of the year. We have relished the opportunity to witness, and at times be a part of, the changing landscape of the soap industry, both on and off-screen.
We wanted to end 2010 with a special list of individuals who compelled, captivated, and fascinated us this past year. These are people who one way or another broke new ground making soap history, blazed new trails, and inspired the creative souls of their audience and their peers. Below is our list of the 15 Most Fascinating People of 2010.
Tina Sloan (Theodora, EMPIRE; Katherine, VENICE)
Why Is She So Fascinating? Sloan demonstrated inspiring new vitality and spirit after the ending of the 26 year role as Lillian on GUIDING LIGHT. She wrote “Changing Shoes,” an autobiographical piece that entertains, inspires, and enlightens like no other book you have read in 2010. She performed her one woman play of the same name for thousands of fans around the country including former President George H.W. Bush.
She also appeared in multiple films including Oh My Love, Black Swan and Happy New Year. Sloan grabbed the Indie Soap Revolution storm by taking on a second role in 2010, a hilarious portrayal of the conniving and manipulative villianess Theodora on EMPIRE, which brought comparisons to her bitchy Kate Cannell on SOMERSET in the 1970s.
