Many of Frances Reid’s cast mates have released their thoughts on the passing of DAYS matriarch and legend, Frances Reid (Alice Horton).  Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso ( Bo and Hope) are said to be taking the news very hard. The duo worked so closely with Frances over many years.  Reckell, in particular had a wonderful on and off screen relationship with Reid.  Bo and Mrs. H, always were best buds.  Below is what some of the cast had to say this afternoon, starting with Reckell.

Peter Reckell:

“She was, has been, and always will be an inspiration to me – both as an actor and as a person. We will miss her.”

Suzanne Rogers:

“Since my mom lived on the east coast I always felt that Frances was my California mom. She always put me in my place but only in a nice, constructive way. We discussed everything from politics to religion. I miss those conversations. The hardest part about all this is not being able to talk to her again.”

Deidre Hall:

Frances Reid, although the consummate actors actor, was far from the donut baking, apron clad wife of Tom Horton most of America knew and loved. She  was a saucy, wildly outspoken and politically incorrect woman. Frances was never shy about speaking her mind openly and passionately- even as we counted down to tape. She called it like she saw it, whether she was taking on the union, or critiquing your hairstyle- mincing her words was never an option. She earned the respect and admiration of her friends and peers with her candid approach to life, work, and philosophy. 

Whether you loved or feared her, you always respected her- and if you had the courage, she was a magnificent teacher, mentor, friend. I feel a strong sense of personal loss as Frances makes her way to Heaven, and know that we shall not look upon her like again.

Peggy McKay:

“She was honest, spunky, and had such a wonderful sense of humor. She was so present, so there. One of the things I really admired about her was her support for her fellow actors.  She provided a strong voice for our union. She was a great, great woman.”

 

Leann Hunley:

“One thing I remember about her was that she was full of useful tips for her costars. I remember her telling me that as an actress it was very important to take at least a 20 minute nap during the day, but it was just as equally important not to mess up our hair and make-up. She was able to teach me a little trick of how to sleep completely still so when I woke up from my nap I didn’t have a hair or eyelash out of place! I love her, she was just lovely.”

 

James Reynolds:

“Frances was always a source of joy and inspiration to me. Her professionalism always inspired me to be better. Her joy and interest in life was such a pleasure to be around. I miss our conversations on politics and life. What a wonderful person.”

 

Louis Sorel:

“Frances Reid was a force of nature, part scamp, highly intelligent, funny, and spirited. We were blessed with her smile and compassion. What a lovely spirit we have to cherish.”

I’ve watched Days since it came on the air and Alice Horton has always been the cornerstone to that soap.

By now, many of you have come across and seen that Michael Fairman On Air On Soaps has evolved into the new and exciting platform, Michael Fairman TV.

I hope you take the time to tour the new site, and enjoy its new look, new features, and extended coverage; which will focus on, and include, not only your beloved daytime soap operas, but primetime television drama, a slice of reality programming, as well as popular streaming and digital series.

This site has been a long time in the making, and we’ve been working very hard behind the scenes to make this transition as smooth as possible.  As with any change, we know that it will take some time for all of us, including me, to get used to it, and adjust to it.

I truly appreciate the community that we have built for the last 10 years, and I value each and every one of you.  As with any new launch, there will be small tweaks and revisions along the way that do come up.  Our goal is to make the best user experience for you, and to bring you the news, interviews, and coverage that you expect from the Michael Fairman brand.

I know many of you are already saying you miss the old Michael Fairman Soaps, but this is an upgrade, not a demolition.  That being said, Michael Fairman Soaps was no longer sustainable as is.  The site needed to grow, evolve, change, and modernize with the times. With modernization, part of that is making the site accessible, functional on mobile phones and devices, which we now are.  While some things can’t remain the same forever, we are always interested in your input.

I am very proud and excited for this new chapter.  I hope you will enjoy everything that is to come, and I appreciate all of your loyal support.  So, let’s christen this site together and celebrate turning over a new page.

With gratitude,

XO

Michael
