Is there a specific character in daytime television that you’ve watched grow up into adulthood? Often times, the casting directors and writing team has other ideas that lead children’s roles into abrupt adolescence or even beyond.

It’s not uncommon to see a child blossom into a legacy character, carrying the family name. Great examples are the Quartermaine, Corinthos, Spencer families and the younger generations as that take over the spotlight. However, more often than not a child actor is SORASed, which means, Soap Opera Rapid Age Syndrome. One day the kid is five, then BAM, the next day the child has a new face and is 15 years older than that day prior. That’s just how it goes in Soaps.
