Hottest Male Soap Stars Of 2018

Published on December 6, 2018.

Those men of daytime drama, though! They are handsome, charming, and keep us swooning all throughout the year. If it weren’t for the males of the soap opera world, we’d have no drama; no romance; no adventure; no intrigue. Below, Fame 10 celebrates 12 of the hottest male soap operas to grace our television screens in 2018.

12. Daniel Goddard – Young and the Restless

For over a decade now, actor Daniel Goddard has been rocking the world of Genoa City as Cane Ashby. He’s lied, cheated, changed identities, dominated the corporate world, been a pretty decent father and husband, and so much more. These days, he’s trying to support his wife Lily, as she’s locked away in prison thanks to reckless driving. Here’s hoping his 2019 brightens up, as 2018 was a hard one for Cane.

11. Tyler Christopher – Days of Our Lives

He had General Hospital fans swooning for years, and now Tyler is the man everyone loves to hate in Salem. Following in his father’s dastardly footsteps, Stefan DiMera doesn’t have an ounce of good in him, and is constantly plotting to destroy lives in the little town. He’s awful! But that charming smile still gets some fans feeling wobbly in their knees.

10. Josh Swickard – General Hospital

Harrison Chase is a fairly new character on the GH scene, and he’s already stolen the hearts of many. Actor Josh Swickard is a welcome addition to Port Charles, and seems to already be diving into some sort of romantic endeavor with Willow, which is a great thing. Just means that fans will see more of him come 2019.

9. Lamon Archey – Days of Our Lives

Lani sure seems to be bitten by the jealousy bug as of late, watching Eli get closer to Sheila. Can anyone blame her? While it is unfortunate that the two lost their child earlier this year, it’s undeniable that they make a fantastic couple together. With his rugged good looks and charm, Eli would make an incredible boyfriend.

8. Jordi Vilasuso – Young and the Restless

Rey Rosales flew into Genoa City under the radar this year, and has quickly become a staple character on the show. He’s got Sharon intrigued, Victoria and Nikki terrified, and wife Mia not wanting to let go. Actor Jordi Vilasuso is no stranger to daytime, and has once again nailed a soap opera role like no one else can with this Y&R part. Rey and Jordi were on fire in 2018.

7. Matt Cohen – General Hospital

It’s no wonder Griffin had a mom, daughter, and sister all fascinated with him this year. The handsome doctor not only has a heart of gold, but is smart, charming, and sexy. He’s hit a low point recently by being accused of murdering his girlfriend Kiki, but GH fans know it’s only a matter of time before the truth comes out. Hang in there, Griffin!

6. Billy Flynn – Days of Our Lives

Billy Flynn has been playing Chad DiMera on Days for about four years now, and the sad news hit the Internet recently that he has decided to leave the show. While there is no confirmed date for his last episode, reports indicate that DOOL fans will enjoy Flynn to about April (or so) 2019. But what will viewers do after that? A recast may just not feel the same when it comes to Chad!

5. Billy Miller – General Hospital

Speaking of Billys, Billy Miller continues to enjoy success in the land of soap operas by playing Drew Cain, Jason Morgan’s mysterious twin brother. Miller has had a huge year in Port Charles, continuing to learn more about his past, dealing with the struggles of being a parent to a teenager (that’s now sick), plus trying to get over Sam and move on with his life. Drew had a hard 2018, so here’s to new love come 2019.

4. Robert Scott Wilson – Days of Our Lives

Doesn’t Ben seem a lot more attractive now that he’s a reformed serial killer and no longer a psycho? Weston has had a huge year, not only trying to convince everyone in Salem that he no longer likes to murder people, but also diving into a steamy romance with Ciara Brady.

3. Joshua Morrow – Young and the Restless

Actor Joshua Morrow continues to be one of the hottest male soap stars in all of daytime drama, even after over two long decades of being on the Y&R playing Nick Newman. Whether he’s chasing after Sharon, seducing Phyllis, or getting his heart broken by Chelsea, most fans still swoon whenever he enters a scene.

2. Steve Burton – General Hospital

Speaking of longevity, actor Steve Burton still keeps GH fans on the edge of their seats even after all these years. He pretty much could have any woman he wants in Port Charles, but this stone-cold sweetheart longs for Sam, and really no one else can compare. As the year ends, there is nothing JaSam fans want more than a reunion for this super couple, and here’s hoping they all get it soon.

1. Michael Mealor – Young and the Restless

Kyle Abbott has always been a pretty cool; however, the character kicked it up a few notches after Michael Mealor was recast in the role earlier this year. He’s smart, charming, a corporate guru, and quite the looker. The character of Kyle has evolved incredibly over 2018, and a lot of that has to do with Mealor. Here’s hoping we see more of him and Kyle in 2019.
