Rank. Actor (Character) # of Episodes
1. Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady) 173

5. Chandler Massey (Will Horton) 137
6. Kristian Alfonso (Hope Brady) 124
7. Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans Black) 118

9. Drake Hogestyn (John Black) 114
IMO, these are the actors who deserve to be on that list, based either on the legacy of their character or, in Chandler's case, a combination of the character's legacy and the strength of the actor. (As always, I will admit that I'm unapologetically biased on that particular subject.) I could also be persuaded to leave Arianne on there based on the strength of her acting. The others? Not so much.

Next year, I'd prefer to see a list that looks more like this (in alphabetical order):

Kristian Alfonso
John Aniston
Bryan Dattilo
Eileen Davidson
Deidre Hall
Drake Hogestyn
Lauren Koslow (or Mary Beth Evans)
Joseph Mascolo
Chandler Massey
Alison Sweeney

(Disclaimers: I'd love to include the Hayes duo, but from what I understand, their lack of airtime is at least partially their choice. I'd love to include Freddie Smith, but I'm only allowing myself one completely biased [yet also completely justifiable, IMO -- Chandler can certainly hold his own with those heavyweights] choice. I'd love to include Wally Kurth and Judi Evans, but they're not currently on contract [to the best of my knowledge, everyone on the above list is, but there are some whom I'm not certain about, like Mary Beth Evans and John Aniston]. I'm not including actors who are not currently on the show. There's a lack of Hortons because there aren't really many on the show right now whom I'd like to see in the top ten. I'm probably forgetting someone who doesn't suck, but that list still looks great to me, mainly because it doesn't include Sir Blinks-a-Lot, Shawn Christian, or a member of a family that didn't even exist five years ago.)

Anyway, on a completely different note...thanks, as always, for the information, Jason!
