MOST REJUVENATED FEMALE CHARACTER|
ERICA, ALL MY CHILDREN
This was, simply put, a boffo year for Erica (and her portrayer, Susan Lucci, who knocked our socks off on multiple occasions). La Kane seemed to be everywhere at once - and deservedly so, after keeping a bafflingly low profile in 2002. Erica's '03 kicked off with the welcome rebirth of her romance with Jackson, but her renaissance was truly realized through the new levels of intimacy she reached with Bianca (the daughter she loves unreservedly) and Kendall (the daughter she loves with major reservations). These relationships provided a steady stream of moving moments - perhaps because they signaled so boldly that the character, who has often seemed more girl than woman, has finally softened her decades-long grip on her adolescence. Erica ain't all grown up - a girl's gotta have some fun - but with her newfound maturity, she's positioned to enter '04 with her head held up higher than ever.
