Playing EXCLUSIVE: From Aliens to Blind Ghosts, Soap Opera Stars Remember Their Most Bizarre Storylines

From resurrections to blind ghosts, ET got the rundown on some of the most bizarre soap opera storylines ever from the actors who played them.

"Crazy storyline? I would say when I went down in a fiery plane crash and I came back a couple of years later with, of course, 'soap amnesia,'" Eva LaRue said.

"I was a blind ghost," Laura Wright said.

"The alien in my garage," Finola Hughes shared.

ET chatted with some of the biggest soap opera stars at Soap Opera Digest's 40th anniversary celebration at the Argyle Hollywood on Wednesday. A few of the stars reminisced about their first time being featured on the cover of the magazine.

"I had the most preposterous, early '90s hair," Alison Sweeney remembered.

"My first cover was Marissa Tomei and I," Christian Le Blanc said. "Marissa Tomei was my girlfriend on As the World Turns. Julianne Moore was my second girlfriend!"

ET's Cameron Mathison covered the event, which was fitting as he portrayed Ryan Lavery on All My Children from 1998 to 2011. Mathison was able to catch up with some of his on-screen hookups at the shindig.

"We were married, like, twice," Claire Egan told Mathison.
