Inside the biggest stars who began their careers on soap operas including Brad Pitt, Alec Baldwin, Lindsay Lohan & more
BRAD Pitt, Alec Baldwin, Lindsay Lohan, and Leonardo DiCaprio are just some of the notables names that got their start on soap operas.
Guiding Light and General Hospital are two of many well known shows that served as a launching pad for some famous stars.
Here are some of the biggest names to have graced us with their dramatic acting abilities on the small screen.
Before he became one of the biggest stars in the world- a title he continues to hold- Brad appeared on Another World in 1987 for two episodes where he played a character named Chris.
It was the now A-lister's first speaking role, and he has gone on to have plenty more in his plus 30 year career.
Alec is known for many film roles including Beetlejuice, The Hunt for Red October, The Departed, and others. However, his first role on the small screen saw him play Billy Aldrich on The Doctors from 1980 to 1982.

"Soaps are the best. They really are. If you can do a soap, well, you can do anything…" Alec, now 63, once told Interview, proving that he clearly does not regret his time on daytime television.
Just like Brad was on Another World, so was Lindsay, however her appearance would occur a decade later.
Lindsay played Alli Fowler on the show from 1996 to 1997, but the young actress had already been a fashion model since the age of three.
She of course would go on to appear in many memorable films including The Parent Trap, Mean Girls, and Freaky Friday, and will star on two new Netflix films in an effort to kick her acting career back up.
