I remember when Nancy, Craig's wife came on and there were ugly comments about her weight but to me, I was glad to see a real type person portraying regular people that are not rated a "10". Is that an automatic expectation, that our soap characters have to look almost perfect? Cause sometimes I feel shallow posting in here, when IRL, if you could see me, I am NOT a perfect "10"! And let's face it, we women do it to each other, men usually don't care.
Ok, off my soap box.
It's one of the reasons I enjoy the British shows. People look more natural. American actors often look way too plastic with the facial surgery and boob jobs etc. It just looks weird. However, it does seem that some of the younger actors are moving away from overdoing the plastic surgery.
