  5. Crystal Chappell is the best actress on daytime. She is on the same level and can be compared to some of the greatest of all time. She is of the same skill level as Meryl Streep, Sophia Loren, Glenn Close, Susan Sarandon. I'm glad that you are recognizing her for her greatness. Thank you 'We love Soaps', I agree with your choice because I am watching Days of Lives for the first time in several years because of Crystal Chappell.
