Helen Wagner, who played Nancy Hughes on the soap opera “As the World Turns,” has died. She was 91 years old.

Wagner played Hughes on “As the World Turns” with only a few breaks since the show debuted in 1956. She reportedly holds the Guinness World Record for having the longest-running character played by one actress.

Born in Lubbock, Tex., in 1918, she was given a lifetime achievement Daytime Emmy Award in 2004, her only Emmy win.

“As the World Turns” is scheduled to air its final episode on September 17.
