Yes, I did watch Soaps when I was in college (Days of Our Lives) and again, a lot of the actors who do Soaps are people who are getting their start in the business or people who have been on them for a very long time, who are set in the role and not really looking to expand their career and make enough money and have (or had) enough of a fan base that it doesnt matter that much.

I do not dislike soaps and am a bit sad that the genre is dying off and hopefully will make a comeback. But it is minor league to prime time programming.

I've always thought of soaps as a reality show in a fake world. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a fan of "Days of our Lives" and watch it everyday.

Lauren Tewes (aka Julie McCoy) claimed in a 2006 interview that the reason she did so little work after the "Love Boat" was that casting directors blackballed her. She said she'd run into old casting directors and they'd say stuff like "I couldn't hire you. The word was out."

*Dana Plato pretty much got herself blackbailed from mainstream Hollywood after she got fired from Diff'rent Strokes do to her pregnancy. Her substance abuse issues most certantly, didn't help matters. But her pregnancy (Dana I think was still a teenager at the time and unmarried) and subsequent firing, for all intents and purposes, killed her image as a child actor. What didn't help was that Dana's character on DS was a predominate "good girl".

*Lisa Bonet hardly got any more major, high profile roles after she was fired from The Cosby Show. Now obviously, with the latest negative news surrounding Bill Cosby, it does add a whole new, more interesting perspective towards why Lisa and Bill had a failing out.

Actually, I doubt Lisa not appearing in many things after TCS had to do with Bill Cosby. It had more to do with the fact that she preferred to raise her daughter Zoe, which was the whole reason she was fired in the first place was she because she neglected her work on TCS by not showing up for rehearsals and tapings.

I'm not sure how much of a factor it is in TV, but in both movies and recording insurance plays a role in this sort of thing. Studios will try to obtain insurance so that they won't have a huge loss if a star can't complete the project. It's happened that some stars become so undependable, usually due to drugs, that they become uninsurable, and projects get cancelled.

In reply to TMC. I don't think with Kirk Cameron it's that he's been "blacklisted", I think it's more that he's turned his back on Hollywood. He'd much rather work in Christian themed projects. I assume many people in Hollywood what with Kirk Cameron being so outspoken about his beliefs that they don't share, don't want to work with him anyways. The dislike is mutual.

That's more than likely the case, but it would be ignorant to not think that Kirk's domineering, alienating behavior on the set of Growing Pains (just Google it) once he became a Born Again Christian most definitely didn't help regardless. It simply wouldn't have been worth the trouble to hire Kirk Cameron at that phase in his life/career because he would've always been second guessing and demanding virtually, full creative control.

Who's gotten "blacklisted" in modern day Entertainment Industry???

Celebrities you think were blacklisted

Michael Chilklis claims that he was blacklisted from Hollywood for a while over his portrayal of John Belushi in the movie Wired. He also claims that Burt Reynolds helped him get back on track by offering a role on his show B.L. Stryker.

I don't think Roseanne has been blacklisted. I think she has simply chosen not to work. I know she's had a couple sitcoms in development with NBC in the last couple of years, I think she just hasn't felt the need to work.

Efrem Zimbalist JR got blacklisted after he starred in FBI due Hollywood's disdain for the FBI.
