COMMENTS FROM THE PANEL:
Alan Carter: (what soap WASNT HE ON!?) No particular role puts him on this list for me...he is always spot on as the grifter/con man/bad boy who is so cool ice wouldn't melt in his mouth...smart, charming, and very funny...it was the rare soap that wasn't captivated by or with Nicholas Coster.
Patrick Erwin: The definition of a utility player, Coster has been on nearly every soap opera on air and many that have ended. I miss Coster’s Lionel Lockridge on SB, and his wonderful moments with Lousie Sorel’s Augusta.
COMMENTS FROM CO-STARS/CO-WORKERS/INDUSTRY:
Louise Sorel: (worked with Coster on SANTA BARBARA) Nick Coster and I, of course, were husband and wife on SANTA BARBARA and are still great friends. He is certainly unique, funny and a hoot to work with.
