Vivica A. Fox on Days Of Our Lives (1988), Generations (1989-1990) and Young and the Restless (1995)

She has memorable movie credits like Independence Day, but Vivica A. Fox was also one of the hardest working women in soaps. Fox appeared on three daytime dramas in her career — on Days of Our Lives as Carmen Silva, on Generations as Maya Reubens and on The Young and the Restless as Stephanie Simmons.
