BEST DAYTIME COUPLE


PHILLIP AND HARLEY, GUIDING LIGHT


Contradictory as it may sound, Phillip and Harley's romance is special because it's so utterly ordinary. Unlike most other star-crossed daytime duos, these two don't have unrelatable concerns: no evil twins, no clones - and now that Beth's moved on - no meddling ex-spouses. Instead, their difficulties stem from all the day-to-day baggage that weighs down most real-life relationships. For one thing, Harley's still nervous that her new stepdaughter won't accept her. For another, Phillip's dysfunctional childhood gives him a dark side that Harley will never validate. Luckily, they're keenly aware of their problems - and, understanding that there's no such thing as a love that's "just meant to be," work hard to resolve them. The resulting emotional fireworks are just as exciting as any evil twin...and a hundred times more resonant.
