I doubt they're that well known outside of soaps, either.

Although Eric Braeden did get a bit part on How I Met Your Mother and was pretty good in it.
In my opinion, people are confusing two issues.

If someone is "well known outside the soap world", that means to me that if you walked up to someone on the street who does not watch soaps, and either showed that person the soap star's picture or mentioned the soap star's name, the 'man on the street' would know who the soap star is. I personally think that's true for Deidre Hall and Susan Lucci, and I think that's what some in this thread were trying to point out.

However, this is unrelated to whether the actress has actually had a role on 'non-soap' TV or in a movie. (I think Susan Lucci was already very well-known even before her stint on DWTS.)
