Soap actors who smoke; actors who smoke
Topic Started: Apr 15 2009, 12:20 PM (62,152 Views)

Anybody know which actors or actresses on soaps smoke? Its a nasty habit but some Ive read have been open about it--just wondering-strange but I find myself wondering as I watch them on TV if they smoke or not--here are some i have read about who do or have

John Paul Lavosier--OLTL
Anthony Geary
Genie Francis
Kristan Alfonso-DOOL
Jeanne Cooper-YR
Jess Walton-YR
Brent Weber-AMC
Walt Willey-AMC
Galen Gering-PAS/ DOOL but I read somewhere he quit or was trying to
David Fumero- OLTL
Nathaniel Marston-OLTL
Tom Pelphrey-GL
James Hyde-PAS-may have quit
Jesse Metcalfe-PAS
Jane Elliot--quit
Sarah Brown-GH
Lisa LoCicero-GH
Laura Wright-GL/GH
Jerry Ver Dorn-GL/OLTL

Some may have quit-some were trying to when interviewed for magazines.

Just wondering if anyone knows anyone else who smokes from GH, OLTL or YR or any other soap-its a nasty habit and while it doesnt change my opinion of their acting-it just decreases their attractiveness.

example- John Paul Lavosier I thought was hot until I read something about him being a smoker....

The majority of film, television and theater actors and actresses smoke cigarettes or have smoked.

I did not know that Galen Gering was a smoker.


Tatyana Ali - The Young and The Restless

Eva Marcille - The Young and The Restless

Sharon Case - The Young and The Restless

Adrian Bellani - Passions

I don't know about currently, but I know Robin Wright smoked when she was on 'Santa Barbara'. It was mentioned in an SOD interview at the time and ended up causing tons of crap for Robin because, apprently, her parents didn't know. lol

Cameron Mathison (Ryan, AMC) was a smoker, but last I heard, he was making a real effort to quit. I hope for his own sake that he has. I quit nearly 6 years ago and I couldn't be happier about it. People who smoke don't realize how much they smell like a dirty ashtray afterwards. It's awful!

She still smokes. Saw it with my own eyes. But she's not a heavy smoker.

I have to admit, these kinds of things always interest me lol. It was like when I was younger and I would find out, or see one of my teachers smoking lmao!

The theater building on campus was so notorious for smokers hanging out on the front steps, a picture of us deviants made the college newspaper & there was talk of banning hanging out on the steps. And the layer of cigarette ash on the loading dock at our summer theater is so thick there's a gray film on the loading platform.

I don't smoke, but the second hand smoke is probably gonna kill me. Tons of people smoke in show business.

I don't think either of them do now, but when Judi Evans first returned to DAYS as Bonnie, she had an interview where she talked about her first stint as Adrienne and how she used to share a dressing room with Melissa Reeves. She said in their downtime they hung out in their dressing room playing board games and smoking.

Kristoff St. John- YR
Joe Mascolo-DOOL
Thaoo Penghlis-DOOL
Greg Vaughan-GH--not sure if he does or not--he was smoking in a youtube video

I suspect that
Gina Tognoni from GL, Mark Lawson from OLTL, Farah Fath from OLTL, Kirsten Storms from GH and Jason Cook from GH smoke also but not sure.
Offline Profile Quote Post Goto Top

Storms got pulled over by cops for flicking a cigarette out a window which was when she got her DUI a year or so ago.

Most likely on Cook and Fath too.

Kyle Lowder did, but I think he quit.

Jay Kenneth Campbell -- Phillip on Days (didn't see him smoking, but he had a pack of cigarettes in his hand)

James Scott -- EJ on Days

Walt Wiley -- Jackson on AMC

Jeff Branson -- Jonathan on AMC/Shayne on GL

Thaao Penghlis and Kristian Alfonso used to take smoking breaks together LOL.

I hope they both quit, I think Thaao said one time that he did, but he looks cool when he smoked that cigar as Andre hahaha. So natural for him... ;)

I tried smoking for like 3 months, just bummed it off a friend from school LOL, didn't like it, and thankfully, I wasn't addicted to it after I finished going there.
