© Crossroads Fan Club 2018, character profiles written by Justin Mason
Motel Staff, management and Kings Oak villagers. Crossroads   as   with   any   long   running   series   had   thousands   of   characters   feature   over   the   years.   In   1979 ATV   estimated   over   5000   actors   had   appeared   in   the   programme.   Having   a   central   location   of   a   motel saw many more performers appear than other sagas of the time. This   page   aims   to   lists   the   key   management   and   staff,   as   well   as   a   look   in   profile   at   some   of   our   favourite characters from the series. Any image which is clickable  will provide a mini bio on that person.
