Find out which actors literally appeared in thousands of episodes of this series over its 35 year history


The Another World cast became a part of America’s family during its run from May 4, 1964 to June 25, 1999. Audiences grew attached to the intricate story plots and nuances of each character, creating a strong and loyal following. The setting of the show is the fictional Midwestern town of Bay City and the plot focuses on people from different backgrounds and social circles coming together (or not) to connect in love, loss, disasters and triumph.

Here, we look back at the longest-running cast members, those who were on the show for hundreds (and in some cases thousands) of episodes.
