Congratulations Crystal for being named as one of We Love Soaps TV’s “15 most fascinating people of 2010″!
We Love Soaps TV: 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.
Crystal Chappell (Gina, VENICE; Executive Producer, VENICE; Carly, DAYS)
Why Is She So Fascinating? Chappell continued to break down barriers on and off screen in 2010. She retooled VENICE THE SERIES into an addictive, cohesive, character-based drama that now envelopes complex family dynamics into its narrative, and demonstrates the power of indie soaps to compete with (and improve upon) daytime staples. She consistently uplifted tepid storylines on DAYS into compelling drama with her performances. She also demonstrated dignity and poise as the last Emmy-nominated Leading Actress from GUIDING LIGHT. In addition, Chappell remained unflinching in her commitment to support and ascend her devoted gay/lesbian following and the causes she believes in including her participation in the NOH8 and It Gets Better campaigns.
