Richard Simms is both the new kid on the block and an old pro. He joined Soaps.com in 2020 after helping launch Soaps in Depth magazine and guiding its team in the same role for nearly a quarter of a century. In that time, he screened enough episodes of The Young and the Restless to now be considered an honorary member of the Newman family, he interviewed enough General Hospital actors to learn the passcode to the greenroom, he traced and retraced the branches of Days of Our Lives’ family trees so often that he no longer fears going out on a limb, and he attended enough fashion shows on The Bold and the Beautiful — from the comfort of his office — that he can almost be trusted to match a shirt and tie. Almost. You can find him online, often live-tweeting the soaps, @soapoperafan.
