With his most recent Soap Opera Digest cover (see left), Joshua Morrow has tied Eric Braeden as the magazine's favorite cover person in the past year.
In the previous 52 issues, here are the rankings based on number of cover appearances (some of the images are inset pics not the main photo).
1. Joshual Morrow 10 covers
1. Eric Braeden 10
3. Sharon Case 9
4. Maurice Benard 8
4. Tamara Braun 8
6. Deidre Hall 7
6. Jason Thompson 7
8. Drake Hogestyn 6
8. Alison Sweeney 6
8. Laura Wright 6
These "leaders" are mostly from three shows - THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, GENERAL HOSPITAL and DAYS OF OUR LIVES. SOD cover favorite Tamara Braun also made some appearances thanks to her current ALL MY CHILDREN role.
Kudos to SOD for diversity in some areas as there was a Reese/Bianca wedding cover and an Otalia subscriber cover. But the last African America actor to appear was Victoria Rowell in a tiny picture 52 issues ago (she'll scroll off the yearly list with the next issue). There were other minorities featured include Raya Meddine several times. The key is to play a character opposite Victor Newman!
