Dear Soaps,
The actor that plays Simon on As The World Turns looks familiar. Was he one of the 3 main characters in the Australian movie The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert? Thanks! — Sally

Dear Sally,
Thanks to that sexy Australian accent, we know that Paul Leyden is from down under, but he did not star in the movie. Leyden does resemble one of Priscilla's leads, Guy Pearce, who played Adam Whitely/Felicia before moving on to star in the Academy award-winning film L.A. Confidential. Leyden did star in a four-hour miniseries called Tribe, shot in his native land, with soap alums Antonio Sabato Jr. (ex-Jagger, GH, ex-Jack, Melrose Place) and Thaao Penghlis (ex-Tony, Days, ex-Victor, GH, ex-Marcus, Santa Barbara).
