HENRY, AS THE WORLD TURNS
It was only supposed to be a two-week stint as WOAK's snarky news director. But as the crafty Addison De Witt to Terri Conn's (Katie) Eve, Trent Dawson quickly turned Henry into Oakdale's hysterically funny, one-man Greek chorus with sly innuendo and sardonic commentary. "If you stay here, I'm stuck in Dopedale...so you can moon over Holden all you want. But when I go, you are going with me, 'cause hey, we're a team," he once told Katie in a tone that was half-threatening, half-playful. Dawson has since added more layers, like a subtle vulnerability, and he's constantly fleshing Henry out. Just watch him in the background sometime - whether he's rolling his eyes or listening intently - he's always reacting. AS THE WORLD TURNS wisely brought Dawson back recently, and if they're smart, they'll keep him. It's just too bad every show can't have a Henry of its own.
