When Lindsay Hartley and Justin Hartley (Theresa and Fox) had a daughter in real life, they went on maternity leave from the show and were both temporarily replaced by Priscilla Garita and Nick Stabile as Theresa and Fox respectively. Both Priscilla Garita and Nick Stabile played opposite each other in the NBC soap Sunset Beach (1997). McKenzie Westmore also temporarily stepped out of her role as Sheridan Crane three times during the show's tenure, and was replaced twice by 'Sunset Beach''s actress Kam Heskin (who was a recast on that show as well). 'Passions' was notorious for recasting actors, and both Kay and Jessica were played by four different actresses each during the show's nine years.
