As The World Turns Throwback Thursday Poll: Simon Frasier image

Smooth operator. (

Accidentally in love.

Australian con man Simon Frasier came to Oakdale in 2000 to retrieve a family heirloom. In order to accomplish his task, he ingratiated himself into the life of a lovely local resident. The two endured quite an ordeal in the process, which included trying to escape his crazy sister Celia's clutches.

Once the two were rescued from the island Celia imprisoned them on, Simon faced deportation. Despite Simon being in love with this woman, she was already married. In order to stay in the country, and close to his love, he married Katie Peretti.

Of course, in true soap opera fashion, Simon and Katie eventually fell in love themselves. Even though their union was ultimately not meant to be, the duo were one of "As the World Turns'" favorite couples, but do you remember who Simon fell in love with before Katie? Vote and comment on Simon's story below.
