For a while there in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Scott Bryce (Craig; ATWT) was the go-to guy if you wanted to marry off a popular daytime or primetime character.

Craig married Betsy on As The World Turns...

And later Sierra...

His character Rick wed Jo (Nancy McKeon) on The Facts of Life....

And Will wed Corky (Faith Ford; ex-Julia; AW) on Murphy Brown.

When I interviewed Scott in 1994 for Pure Soap on E!, he said he had all the wedding pictures lined up at home as if they were real.

Craig and Betsy's marriage ended in divorce. So did Craig and Sierra's (well, first they took turns being presumed dead...). So did Will and Corky's.

Jo and Rick are the only ones who presumably lasted, based on The Facts of Life Reunion. (When Nancy McKeon declined to return as Jo, they sent the next best thing, Jo's daughter, Jamie, and her dad, Rick, though he was now played by a different actor. I know. It's confusing.)

In real-life, Scott Bryce is married to actress Jodi Stevens, and they have a son, Jackson.

In addition to his acting and directing, in 2009, Scott helped Connecticut students produce a movie about Frederick Douglass for PBS.

Watch him discuss the production, below:
