50 Greatest Actresses: The Fans Strike Back (20-16)


Earlier this month, We Love Soaps revealed our panel of critics' 50 Greatest Soap Opera Actresses of All Time list. We then asked fans to submit their own lists so that we could create "The Fans Strike Back" countdown. Hundreds of We Love Soaps readers submitted their lists.  The results have now been tabulated and so far we have revealed 50-46, 45-41, 40-36, 35-31, 30-26 and 25-21.
