Now he's a candidate for the U.S. Senate. His lover, Erica Kane (played by Susan - Lucci), was a world famous model. Now site's the publisher of a high-fash ion magazine. Both are millionaires. Both are urbane and extremely intelligent. Despite the proliferation of business moguls, doctors and lawyers on the soaps, intelligent characters such as Erica and Travis. arc a rarity : on daytime television. And that makes it particularly annoying -when smart soap characters do stupid things. Take Erica and Travis, for example. Despite all thuir worldlincss, neither, apparently, has heard of birth control. Although bo1.lt are experienced adults in their 30s, Erica accidentally bo- came pregnant this summer. She then avoided telling Travis the news (and "kept denying it when he found out), because she was afraid that "it would ruin his senatorial campaign. Experienced "AMC" watchers know that Erica, who made a practice of lying to men for years, is finally too mature to do it anymore. But that's what the writers had her do. They also used the possibility Ithal Travis . wouldn't want to marry her Lo build suspense, lint, why bother? The audience already knew that Travis was a mature, sophisticated man who wouldn't jilt the woman he sincerely loves for the sake of mere ambition. Give the guy - and the audience a little credit! Intelligent, characters are frequently forced to trade their brains for (.he sake of melodramatic plot devices. Most, often these devices are used to throw a monkey wrench into a long-running romance or prolong a successful story line. "Santa I'Jarbara" 's bright. Kden Capwell (played by Marcy Walker) was "presumed dead for months. When she returned to town for a long-awaited reunion with her equally intelligent .fiance, Gruz Castillo (.pJayud. by-A Martinez).
