Soap Star Jackie Zeman Dead At 70

I am, and will always be, a daytime soap opera fan.
I love them. I loved them so much that I did a research paper and presentation on the history of soaps.

The soap opera is the most intimate of mediums. You literally are committing five hours a week, 52 weeks a year, year after year. And, I have been watching for 40+ years.

I watched soaps on all three networks, but I started on ABC. When I began, the day started with Ryan’s Hope and ended with The Edge of Night.

I always loved General Hospital.

And, as long as I have been watching, Jackie Zeman has played Barbara Jean Spencer.

Bobbie Spencer is one of my Top 5 female characters in soapdom. I have loved her because of the depth and humanity Zeman brought to the character.

General Hospital will not be the same without her.

RIP🙏🏿😪

😢😢😢😢😢😢

    Jackie Zeman’s first daytime gig was as “Tony’s Place” waitress, Lana McClain on #OLTL. She had an affair with playboy Brad Vernon, who would ultimately be responsible for her death in December 1977. That same month, Gloria Monty would cast her as #GH’s Bobbie Spencer. #AfterLife https://t.co/kkTrWohroe

    I am stunned. We just met when I did @GeneralHospital to honor @SonyaEddy 🕊️.

    She saw me in the hallway marveling at the #GH sign — I couldn’t believe I was actually there. I turned, saw her & immediately fan-girled. I’ve loved her all my life! She was lovely. #RIPJackieZeman 😔 https://t.co/dSjN0oK9Ej
