43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination Performer Voting Has Begun!

The  race is on!  NATAS has opened the voting in the Pre-Nomination round for this year’s 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.   Voting began on Monday, January 11th and will continue through till January 25th.  The results of which of your favorite daytime drama performers move on to the Blue-Ribbon round will be announced by the academy on January 27th.  This year, there are a record number of entries across all categories, which is great news for the annual competition.

And now some of the rules:  Ten performers will move forward to the Blue-Ribbon round, unless their is a tie.  However, NATAS  is aiming for ten in every category.  Those categories include: Outstanding Lead Actor and Actress and Outstanding Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series.  For the Pre-Nom round, actors were allowed to choose material from up to 2 episodes not to exceed 4 minutes for judging.

The Pre-Nom Emmy system will not allow the voters to submit their choices  unless they have viewed all the entries within a category.  Actors can vote for themselves only in the Pre-Nom round.

Those entered in the Younger Actor and Actress, Guest performer, and Actors and Actress in a Digital Drama Series will move forward to the Blue-Ribbon round automatically.  Those entered in Guest Performance in a Drama Series must have appeared in a limited number of episodes, and a must be a character that was created in 2015.   Therefore, someone who returned to the series such as GH’s Jonathan Jackson (Lucky), would not be allowed in the category as a “Guest” performer.

One of the exciting major changes this year for the Blue-Ribbon round of voting is that actors can submit appearances from two episodes not to exceed 20 minutes in their reel, thus giving them the opportunity to show more variations to the character they play, and their talent.   Those who go on to the Blue-Ribbon round from the Guest Performer, or Digital Drama Series actors will submit only one episode for contention.

On-Air On-Soaps spoke exclusively with David Michaels, Senior VP of The Daytime Emmy Awards and Events for NATAS who noted: “Since I am the only one that has seen the Pre-Noms, I can tell you that the judges have a real treat in store, because the work is outstanding.  The support from the daytime drama world is overwhelming.  It would be a much shorter answer if you asked who did not enter as opposed to who did.  It’s a very exciting time, and NATAS is looking to unveiling who is the running come January 27th.”

So, who do you hope gets a Pre-Nom from your favorite daytime dramas in the top acting categories? What do you think of some of the rules and a few of the changes this year?   Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Peter Reckell better be up there! His performance as Bo Brady had me crying for a week. Actually, I’m still crying LOL

Yes please!! Peter Reckell should be nominated then go on to win.

I’ll just wait until the nominations are official and then comment. I just PRAY they use ONE character from each of the FOUR soaps and let them host! Enough of this Kathy Griffith crap and putting it online! Either have a show with awards, music and lengthy clips or dont bother!

They would love too… But a network has to pick it up. It isn’t just something the show can DEMAND.

why don’t you try to write to ABC, CBS and NBC and tell them to pick it up. see what they say.

GB, if I’ve learned anything and I’ve learned a couple things, networks, sport teams, Disney, ect do NOTHING that is not in the best interest of making them making MONEY! I wouldnt waste my time.

that’s exactly what I meant, Timmm. i was being sarcastic. i find talk shows really uncomfortable to watch, but i’m not being cynical when i say that the investment involved in launching a soap is one no network wants any part in

GB

ooops, sorry, i was replying to somebody else. but the original thought still stands. the networks would laugh in your face. even the primetime emmys have been struggling ratingswise, so imagine how they’d feel about the daytime emmys. i wish it weren’t so

I cannot stand Kathy Griffin BUT my biggest complaint is she has nothing to do with daytime. Lets use people from daytime. It could even be Regis, Kathy Lee and Koda, Matt Laurer, whomever, just not D list celebrities or people not affiliated with daytime.

Elizabeth
Elizabeth

Rebecca Herbst did an outstanding job in 2015 portraying Elizabeth Webber on GH. Her character’s story lines ranged from giddy romance with Billy Miller as amnesiac Jake, through the shock of finding out his true identity as Jason, and the subsequent months of guilt-ridden angst while she kept the secret and built a family, culminating in the train-wreck wedding at which he was revealed, And of course the break off of the relationship. Rebecca played all of the beats. She is a consummate professional who deserves recognition for her amazing acting skills.

James R. Poissant

Rebecca should win an Emmy every year just for being there—she is always so good to watch.

Soapluv2010
Soapluv2010

I don’t like the Elizabeth character but, Rebecca has done a fine job this year. For this award, her body of work is irrelevant. It boils down to the reel she submits to the judges. Fortunately, she has some good ones to choose so let’s hope she gets help picking the right one to make her a winner.

Timmm
Timmm

She is a good actress but she only has a small chance of winning. There are bigger names in the female category that will prevail. Maybe they wouldnt deserve to win over Rebecca but their names roll off tongues quicker than Rebecca’s. Sucks but true.

Tristan

Becky should get the first annual “They Trashed My Character But I Still Sold It” Emmy, for Best Actress in a Character Assassination storyline used to prop a couple with no chemistry (Sam and Ja-borg).

I also gotta say, the scenes with KMc and Ja-borg on the bridge were really special. Kim should get a special “They Begged Me to Try to Get Emotion out of Ja-borg and I Did” Emmy for exceptional service to the daytime industry under trying circumstances.

Ray

I am excited to see the 10 in each category. This year has seen some unbelievable performances on “DOOL” and “GH.” I hope we do not have any headscratchers like in previous years. I love Peggy McCay (Caroline, DOOL), but she did not deserve to be in Lead Actress last year. It seems that if you are driving a storyline, you should not be able to submit yourself in the Supporting Actor/Actress category. With that said, I am hoping to see Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi (Chad and Abigail) in the Lead Actor/Actress.

I would like to see the following:

Best Actress: Laura Wright, Kristian Alfonso(!!!), Kate Mansi, Kassie Depaiva, Rebecca Herbst

Best Actor: Peter Reckell, Billy Flynn (!!!), Billy Miller, Don Diamont, Jacob Young

Best Supporting Actress: Suzanne Rogers (!!!), Lauren Koslow, Ari Zucker, Mary Beth Evans, Jane Elliott, Genie Francis

Best Supporting Actor: Freddie Smith, Robert Scott Wilson (!!!), James Read, John Aniston, Robert Palmer Watkins, Jason Thompson

Ray

I forgot to add Jen Lilly and Eric Martsolf

So many great performances from GH Finola Hughes Laura Wright Rebecca Herbst. I used to love watching the daytime Emmy’s not so much anymore. I hate the talk and game shows. It’s not about soaps anymore. I watch to show support but the year they streamed them online was bad.

I am sorry that Jonathan Jackson ‘s performance on GH this past summer won’t be considered because of the rules. He came back into a role after at least 2years away and blew it out of the water. Such talent should be rewarded. Kudos to JJ.

There were so many outstanding performances in 2015 it would be nearly impossible for me to pick a personal favorite— I say this every year, but the truth is the real winners are the viewers who get to be entertained by so many talented actors, a true embarrassment of riches— good luck to all who submitted a reel— let the games begin and may the odds be ever in your favor.

This is lovely Mary. I agree wholeheartedly!

Man, did Rebecca Herbst blow me away this year. She hit every note of that storyline, and did not miss an opportunity to add subtext in subtle and meaningful ways. I hated the story, but I really got a kick out of watching her depth and range.
Finola Hughes is also an absolute powerhouse of an actress, and I’m sure she had many very compelling scenes to submit. Loved them both this year!

Tristan
Tristan

Finola Hughes and Becky Herbst: these are the two women from GH I also hope receive nominations. Whatever is put before them as story, they make wholly believable. Sentimental hope for Laura Wright as Lena Spencer. She was phenomenal in that performance. And a shout-out to darling Brooklyn Rae Silzer for her astonishingly real performance in the episode where Sam and Patrick broke up. Gut wrenching!

su0000

GH will take it.
Black & white 52nd and Tony will get his 9th Emmy for his performance in the B&W..
Laura will bring one home for her performance in the B&W..
And– RC will bring his home. too

Fanny

@Su000…Your positivity is contagious !!!
Laura & Antnony for the 52nd Blk/Wht episode.
Finola for her continually brilliant performances.
And of course RC…..

I wholehearted couldn’t DISAGREE more.

Tristan

My preferences for GH are Becky Herbst and Finola Hughes for their work all year, though I am really sentimental over Laura Wright’s one-off as the tragic Lena Spencer.

Tony Smoney…I see that award going to Peter Reckell. Even though I do not watch Days the buzz has been relentlessly strong for the power of his performance. He is the sentimental favorite.

Let’s not forget our adorable Brooklyn Rae Silzer! Phenomenal and gut wrenching in the Sam/Pat break-up episode. I’d give her an Emmy just for her beaming smile as the little Scrubs family walked out of the house and toward their new life.

Timmm

I agree with you about Tony and Laura.

There was no one better than Kassie Depaiva this year. Her portrayal of a broken, grieving Eve on Days was heartbreaking and masterful . She deserves to FINALLY win an Emmy for her incredible work.

Patrick
Patrick

from your post to god’s ear

without giving it too much thought….. the two things that come to mind for my viewing habit (s) DAYS and GH

the two actors who immediately come to mind

Days : Kassie DePaiva
GH: Rebecca Herbst

I think I could let this rest… if Kassie, won for her portrayal(s)

on a personal note: I’d like for some justice …. to see her WIN that best actress award… and see Ken Corday ???? bristle … in his face…

fan ROAR… let him know… how remiss his judgment …. there was no reason to let her go…. they could simply have moved on… from the JJ debacle…. and in my mind… it was an excellent story…

Jackie
Jackie

Rebecca Herbst deserves the award this year. It has been a long time coming and she knocked it out of the park with her performance this past year.

Lainey
Lainey

DAYS got this!!! DAYS stories, actors and actresses were all amazing in 2015. GH was and is still disappointing. GH’s stories are inconsistent and their actors/actresses though have been great years ago did not have the wow factor for 2015.

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Agree that GH is very inconsistent–and was unwatchable under last regime that dismantled legacies and legacy characters right and left–seemingly with relish and abandon.
“DAYS got this!!”—I agree!

Patrick

DAYS of OUR Lives : Ben / Chad / Abs

when everything… in and around DAYS… was transitioning… the new production team value (s)

Robert Scott Wilson
Billy Flynn
Kate Mansi

took the ball and ran with ALL of it : they goldmined and fine tuned their profession proud

so… right out of the gate

these three FINE young actors… have to be lauded

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Couldn’t agree more! Production values so great–and the three actors–so great also!

Patrick
Patrick

I “love” Kassie DePaiva

bring this woman; back to the fold

ps: I never watched OLTL… so… my over the top love for this top draw ignited

She deserves emmy recognition

Stephanie
Stephanie

Billy Miller and Kelly Monaco better be in there. Also Bryan Craig, Maurice Bernard, Laura Wright, Emme Rylan, Jason Thompson… I’d say even Rebecca Herbst.

Timmm
Timmm

I only think Rebecca deserves a win on your list.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Of course, I agree with you, Timmm. Only Rebecca H. deserves recognition from that list. Kelly Monaco? Yes, she should get an Emmy for falling so gracefully (for the umpteenth time) into Billy’s arms after her continuous tripping. Bryan Craig for the worst rendition of bipolar disorder; and Maurice for stuttering and mumbling through his lines.
As I said, only Kassie has touched deep, human and raw emotion. Perhaps we should rewind…..go back to those episodes when Paige died. Nothing even comes close to that pain.
It is called human struggle.
Y&R presented us with a tear-jerker today. The bedside scenes ( Billy’s) with family members saying their last good-byes were so skillfully and woefully enacted, I found myself in that hospital room, weeping with them. Jess Walton’s performance proved once again to me what a seasoned thespian she truly is. I am glad Y&R is picking up the pace.
Nonetheless, none can top Kassie. Days has had a ‘can’t touch this’ kind of storyline (with Ben) ……I doubt even Days, itself, can outrun it. ‘Night, Timmm.

Patrick
Patrick

WOW ! I can’t believe… I can say… DAYS just rocked in so many ways

the ebb and flow of the staunch devotion…. DOOL FANS ! step up to the plate!

this is OUR time

I’m expecting great returns… unlike any other year…. of recent memory

no more…. crest fallen at the few returns of recognition

heck! DAYS of OUR Lives…. has won (best show)… twice in the last three years…. !!!!

The best REEL of the best genre of this medium

DAYS of OUR Lives

Hunter King? Is this her MOTHER!

Shelley

Absolutely NOT! She has won two years in a row already. Why would you be surprised by her having fans?

Nikki

I agree. It has to be her mother or one of her friends or one he– of a joke. Hunter King is sickening at her best and putrid at her worse.

Nikki
Nikki

Or her sister. Eric Braeden is a fine actor but he always plays the same old role they need to soften him up a bit. Justin Hartley should win for his Adam reveal.

gloria

HILARIOUS Timmm. I was just scrolling thru here & thought to myself nobody from Y&R deserves to be nominated this year. BORING, so repetitive, so predictable at every turn. No big surprises-just same old, same old. Now, I watch it every day (although I cheated last week one day & read the synopsis on Soap Central-didn’t miss a damn thing by not tuning in) I love all soaps & will never quit watching any of them but jeez, Y&R needs an overhaul like nobody’s business, anyone agree with me?

Elpa
Elpa

Yes y&tr needs an overhaul. I watch it religiously and so have a finger on the pulse. One of the worst performances was Adam’s return. Until very recently, when Victor assured he’d be safe from prison, for a year nearly every sentence this new Adam uttered was followed by a question. In his faux desperation instead of acting the emotion he used questions to portray it. “you know?” “you hear?” “you see?” “oh how?” “oh why?” I was exhausted watching this over-acting. At first I found it unbelievable that it occurred so often, but when it became regular I had a bet with friends just how many hand-wringing questions at the end of sentences would happen that day’s episode. Were those writers’ lines or his ad-libbing? For his sake I hope it’s the former.

Timmm
Timmm

Its not about having fans its about awarding the best actor or actress. She doesnt qualify. BUT, as you pointed out, she has won before AND thats why I take ALL these award shows with a grain of salt! I GUARANTEE you if the fans voted she would not win. BUT, if your a fan of her work, thats okay to.

Shelley
Shelley

Because some how YOU think you’re an expert? She’s a celebrated, 2 time Emmy winner with a lead role on daytime’s #1 drama, a recurring role on a prime time show and just had a lead role in a movie. Do you think YOUR opinion is more accurate than that of daytime casting directors, prime time casting directors and big screen directors?

She’s OBVIOUSLY good enough to be loved and supported by professionals in HER industry. Perhaps you should take THAT into consideration.

Timmm
Timmm

You are full of anger. You are on the wrong website dear. We all share opinions here and many times we do not agree, but we dont lash out and strongly suggest what one SHOULD do. A lot of fans on this site dont like Hunter King. Its a fact if you follow the posts day in and day out. But thats beside the point, I stated at the end of my last reply to you that if you are a fan of Hunter’s, and obviously you are, thats okay. Have a better day, Timmm.

Paula
Paula

There are too many others more deserving than Hunter besides you barely see her anymore. She certainly hasn’t been top burner.

Ali W
Ali W

Its impossible for me to pick who I want , to win for the daytime Emmy’s this year. Because everyone deserves one. Because i believe the top actors/actresses who had the top besf performances on a soap. Goes to at number 1.) Days of our lives:the awards deserves goes to Peggy who plays Caroline / Arianne (Nicole) / Kristen (Hope)/ Peter(Bo)/Stephan( Patch)/ John (Victor)/ Joe(Stefano)/ Billy(Chad)/ Kate (Abigail)/ Robert(Ben). And at number 2.) General Hospital: Billy M(Jason)/ Rebecca H (Liz)/ Kelly M(Sam)/ Maurice B(Sonny)/ Laura W(Lena Spencer/Carly)/ Anthony G( Tim Spencer/Luke)/ Chad( Michael Quatermaine)/Byran (Morgan)/Jason T(Patrick)/ Finola H(Anna)/ Michelle ( Nina)/ RogerH( Franco)/ Tyler( Nikolas)/Domanic( Dante). The other top performers on B&B and Y&R: Karla (Maya)/ Jacob(Rick)& Lindsey(Caroline)/ Joshua(Nick)/ Steve(Dylan)/ Sharon Collins (Sharon) Peter B( Jack)/ Justin (Adam)/ Melissa (Chelsea). These are the best top actors/actresses of the,year of 2015. Who should deserve a daytime pre noms. For their performances.

Looking toward NEXT YEAR’S noms: GH can save itself by writing a story for Genie Francis worthy of her acting skills and moxie and worthy of her legacy character Laura–and Genie can pick up the award for BEST ACTRESS at NEXT YEAR’s award show.

Just hand Kassie DePaiva an Emmy!

Although I didn’t like the previous writers vision for Eve, Kassie’s performances blew me away, especially under the new writers. Eve’s grief for her murdered daughter was a great showcase for Kassie!

I wish Kassie had been brought on as Kristen DiMera or anyone other than Eve.

Chicken Dancing
Chicken Dancing

Agreed. Although I think Mz. D was the perfect choice for the Eve recast, she was just saddled with a story line that was…well…poorly written and just plain creepy. Unfortunately the new writing team, under pressure of time restraint and tasked with a quick fix, simply chose to get rid of anyone involved in unpopular story lines and unpopular characters. If you noticed every one who was removed from the canvas in Days Neck Tie Killer story were all characters the viewers were very VERY vocal about hating. Eve’s up coming exit, rumored to be a suicide, is part of that new regime’s clearing the canvas of unpopular characters but trying to do it with respect for an iconic performer who deserved better. Hopefully, Kassie will receive that well deserved Emmy, not only for a mesmerizing performance but also for enduring with class and style a really abd situation.

CeeCee
CeeCee

If what you say is true, Chicken, how does a ‘ suicide’ exit evince respect? I would think the opposite is true, no?

I love the fact that the Academy FINALLY is allowing a reel that contains more than one episode. This will allow the award and nominations, somewhat, to be based on sustained performance, and discount episodes that have basically been designed “to win the Emmy”. All four soaps have been at times unwatchable this year, but all four have also been incredible; so it looks like an even race this year. As for the actors, I seem to agree with most of the comments on this thread, “Days of Our Lives” has had some jaw dropping performances, and should get a majority of the pre-noms. I do hope this year, some un-sung and forgotten actors get some recognition. Jen Lilley, Kate Mansai and even little power house (and recently replaced) Lauren Boles of Days of Our Lives come to mind. Actors themselves choose the category placement, so Peggy McKay and others will end up in categories none of the fans agree with. However, Eric Martsolf stated it best, in an interview on why he always submitted in supporting, when he said the the lead was an iconic title that had to be earned and once earned could never be taken away. So YOU tell Peggy McKay and others who have delighted and awed us for 30 some odd years they are now supporting actors again…I’m not gonna! As always, we will be upset by some of the nominees and some of the omissions. The process is flawed, but is actually the fairest of ANY award voting process, and they keep working to make it more so. Hey, what would awards for soap operas be without a little soap opera? I think there is an easy way without diminishing the integrity of the award to make the show get higher ratings, but I can’t seem to figure out how to get my idea to any one in the academy, but then again, I am a single life long devotee of soaps, both America and British, so who’s going to take my idea seriously. Personally as a viewer of ALL 4 soaps, I am excited to see who gets nominated and can’t wait to complain about my favorites who don’t. I won’t speculate on categories because I know some won’t enter the race I think they should, but I am rooting for Billy Flynn, Ari Zucker, Robert Scott Wilson, Kassie D, Casey Moss, Martsolf and the ladies previously mentioned from Days; Justin Hartley and Melody Thomas Scott from Y&R, All those involved with the transgender story line at B&B, and Rebecca Herbst, Lisa Locicero & especially Brooklyn Rae Silzer from GH.

Karen

Becky Herbst and her Liz have been through the ringer this year. I would give her the Emmy right now just for the Nurses Ball reveak. She went through every possible range of emotion in that story.

CeeCee
CeeCee

You’re right, Karen. Our Miss Lizzie has gone through hell and back; by her own machinations and devises. Methinks she’s still at it! Is the mystery person who broke in another one of her creation to keep Jason glued to her? I find Rebecca’s performance(s) enthralling; deserving of, at least, a nomination.

angie kenyon

I’m hoping Jasam will come into their own kind of relationship this year.. But with all the romance, fire, adventure as ever before. I hope Liz and Jake get help after it comes out that Jake is the one doing this nonsense, and Liz will go along with it. I hope Johnny stays, Val, Nathan, Felix can leave Port Chuck, bring Duke back–again– .. Have Robert on more. It’d be nice if Luke could make a cameo, if he doesn’t come back permanently. I hope Mikey takes over the Biz.. Ava n Paul are a good match. I want Sonny to walk and he and Carly to be happy… Franco n Nina, yes !! Morgan n Kiki I hope are a couple once again. I love Nik and Hayden.. And want Lante’ to work out..
I want those writers to quit bringing new people on…

Linda Bienias

I Hope Billy Miller gets pre nominated in Blue Ribbon round, Bryan Craig, Laura Wright, Kelly Monoco , Brooklyn Silzer, Jason Thompson, Maurice Bernard and last but not least Roger Howarth from General Hospital. From Y&R Justin Hartley, Mellisa Claire Eagan, Amelia Heinle, Josh Morrow and Peter Bergman are all deserving to name a few.

I would really like too see all the acotrs/actresses involved in the transgender storyline get official nominations because they really were amazing, Karla Mosley, JacobYoung, Reign Edwards. Anne Marie Horsford and Obba Babatunde were also incredible and also being that they have been put on contract or been made recurring it means they can go out for the supporting categories. I especially want to see Karla Mosley take that step into the lead actress category she really was the leading lady for B&B in 2015 and she more than deserves a nomination if not the win. I also would love to see Linsey Godfrey in the mix, I’m hoping she submits the scenes from the Ridge Break up/Night with thomas. Also Jacqueline MacInnes Wood & Ashlyn Pierce for those episodes on the demise of Aly Forrester, simply incredible. There are a few others I want to see get nominated or even a pre-nom but a lot of those powerful scenes came after the official cut off time which is disappointing but it is what it is.

I loved reading all of these comments. I left a lot of people off my suggestions and agree that Finola Hughes and Justin Hartley should be in the Final Five nominations.

I don’t understand why one of the three major networks would not air the awards on Friday or Saturday night. Most of the time, it is one of the lower rated nights and usually we see repeats from previously aired programs. This would be a great way of possibly introducing your shows to a new/expanded audience.

I have some suggestions to make the awards show better and bring in long-time viewers. I would love to see Lauren Koslow, Finola Hughes and Linda Dano do a red carpet pre-awards show. Linda has always been so entertaining to watch, Finola is a trend-setter and everyone knows Lauren looks great in everything.

I would love to see some of the actors who are known to be great singers perform on the show, Eric Martsolf, Jen Lilly, Steve Burton, Scott Reeves, Brandon Baresh, Nadia Bjorlin, Casey Moss, Kassie D., etc. We have read so much about how great the DOOL anniversary party was with all of the performances. It would break the monotany of award after award and let the audience see their additional talent.

The audience would also be larger if actors from past soaps would be invited to present awards. Why can’t shows honor their legends instead of displaying actors most of the audience do not know? Who wouldn’t rather see Susan Lucci and Julia Barr having a playful pretend fight presenting an award? I would also love to see Erica Slezak and Robin Strasser, Liz Hubbard and Martha Byrne, Kim Zimmer and Robert Newman, Kristian Alfonso and Peter Reckell, Finola Hughes and Ian Buchanan,Tom Eplin and Jensen Buchanan, Jackie Zemen and Rick Springfield, and Marcy Walker and A Martinez.

My suggestions for hosts this year are Eric Martsolf, Laura Wright and Scott Clifton. These actors always bring life to the party.

Last, but not least, let’s do a MAJOR tribute to David Canary and have Kelly Ripa, Bobbie Eakes, Julia and Susan honor him.

DAYS Stacy Haiduk and Eric Martsolf Talk Kristen & Brady’s Twisted Relationship : The Mask, The Deception, The Sex

Last week on Days of our Lives, Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) was able to get the man she craves in between the sheets.  So, just how did that happen when Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) had no idea she was alive?  Well … he still doesn’t, really.  You see, Kristen returned to Salem disguised as another ex flame of Brady’s, Nicole Walker (who everyone believed died in the warehouse explosion).  And Kristen has been parading around town donning an incredible likeness of Nicole’s face – via a prosthetic mask – and some other tricks to sound and look just like her!

Kristen’s goal is to infiltrate Salem, remind Brady of the love and passion they shared, take over DiMera Enterprises, and who knows what else!  And everyone who stands in her way, better watch out as we have seen! We are speaking to you (the late) Ted, and (once kidnapped) Kate, et al.

Fans of the NBC daytime drama series have followed the tortured relationship between Kristen and Brady for years and through many plots; Kristen was first played and brought to life by Eileen Davidson, and for well over a year now by Stacy Haiduk.  Not only has Haiduk reprised the role of a frustrated, vengeful Kristen, she is also playing at times multiple roles: the wacky and often misunderstood, Susan Banks, Kristen playing Susan, or Kristen pretending to be Sister Mary Moira.

As for Daytime Emmy winner, Eric Martsolf, this latest story arc puts him front and center as viewers watch to see if what Brady senses, and the clues, and the feelings he is having, bring him to the conclusion that he has been duped by Kristen, and that her horrendous scheme – pretending to be Nicole (Arianne Zucker), and dumping Nicole’s longtime love Eric (Greg Vaughan) to be with him have a result that is unexpected or catastrophic!

Michael Fairman TV sat down with Stacy and Eric for this conversation about: all the plot twists, and playing the drama and the humor of the situations they find themselves in as actors in a wild story that only head writer Ron Carlivati could pen and keep the audience on the edge of their seats in the process. Check out this oh-so-fun, direct, and enlightening chat with two of DAYS most shining stars.

Eric, what has it been like working in this part of your storyline; where there’s the character of Kristen in its many forms: Arianne Zucker playing “Nicole” (but it’s really Kristen), Kristen as Susan, and the real Kristen, etc?

ERIC:  It’s been a nightmare Michael.  (Laughs)  I don’t know who I’m sleeping with anymore.  I’m at the point where I go home at night, and I just tug on my wife’s cheek just to make sure that she is not my ex-girlfriend from high school.

When you first heard of this storyline, and that it was going to facilitate how Arianne was going to come back to the show… and that it was supposed to be Kristen in a Nicole Walker prosthetic mask with a voice alternator, what went through your mind?

ERIC:  I think in the back of Ron’s Carlivati’s (head writer, DAYS) mind, he was thinking to himself, “This dude started his soap career on Passions, he’s okay with this kind of thing,” and honestly, nothing surprises me anymore.  When you’re thrown into that supernatural, crazy reality, doesn’t-live-here sort of atmosphere for you first soap gig, you don’t sweat a mask and a voice modulator.  That’s just par for the course.  My biggest problem was the body thing … that Brady is not able to distinguish one body from the other, because I would as Eric.  My God, I know every inch of my wife’s body.  So, it’s difficult to get my head around that, but at the same time, I’m going with the whole “love is blind” thing here. (Laughs)

(Laughs) I was going just going to say that Brady would absolutely know Kristen’s body from how passionate their relationship has been in the past, as well, he would Nicole’s body from his relationship with her.

ERIC:  Since Kristen did finally just succeed – let’s use the word in “seducing” him, and using her wonderful feminine wiles as only Kristen has to get Brady in to bed, there was also another twist.  What plays after that is that he notices the tattoo that’s been removed, and she plays it off as scarring from the fire.  What’s going through his mind as he is making love to Nicole is a “Kristen train”.  He can’t get Kristen out of his mind, and the guilt that he feels about that is horrendous.

Right! Brady is thinking: “Why am I feeling this when I am supposed to be with Nicole!?”

ERIC:  Right!  Brady has been waiting for a relationship for God knows how many years now – at least a successful one.  He is so eager to have this work, even though he has been concerned about how Eric (Greg Vaughan) would feel about this.  In Brady’s mind, Eric is done with Nicole.  He’s good.  He loves Sarah (Linsey Godfrey).  This is fair game.  Brady and Nicole have always been close … they’ve been close before … so, for him, it’s, why not give it a fair try?   However, he finds himself now thinking about another woman the whole time.  That’s rough.

Courtesy/NBC

Do you think in the back of his mind, that this whole time, he possibly knew that “Nicole” was Kristen?

ERIC:  Well, you just have to wait.  There will be a reveal eventually, obviously, but until then, let the games play on.

So, once Brady and “Nicole” have sex, he keeps thinking about Kristen?

ERIC:  Constantly!  She just plagues his mind.  I think he’s realizing that his affection for Kristen is anything but dead and is very alive, and I think this is Kristen’s master plan from the very beginning.  She knows that she pervades his soul, and once she does reveal herself, I would guess he would probably be surprised, maybe a little angry, but in the end … you can’t deny what your heart and your body wants, right?

One of my favorite recent scenes had Brady half-naked and Kristen as Susan getting into his room, because she was looking for the MIA Nicole mask she so desperately needed.  She finds herself gawking and lusting after Brady under her disguise, and he tries to remove himself from the situation and says, “Susan, I’m going to get in the shower…”

ERIC:  Yeah! And, “It’s not going to happen, baby.”

What was that like doing that scene?

STACY:  I loved it!  I thought Eric was brilliant in it.  I watched it, and I thought, “Oh, my God!”  (Laughs) It is one of my all-time favorite scenes.

Photo: JPI

ERIC:  Kristen is a tiger.

STACY:  She is a tiger.  She’s got a goal, and she is going to go after that.  She has obstacles that are going to come in-between her goal, but she will go after whatever she wants.

When Stacy comes in to Brady’s room as Susan, were you not laughing?

ERIC: No!  I thought she was hot. (Laughs)

STACY:  He did … he loved it.  You liked me, didn’t you baby? (Laughs)

ERIC:  I don’t think anybody can deny that Stacy Haiduk’s portrayal of Susan Banks is ridiculously good.  Everything from her delivery … to her facial expressions.  I think it is amazing.  I mean, it is corny, and it is fun, and soaps need characters like that once in a while to lighten the load of the heavy dialogue and the drama.  It’s a welcomed addition.  So, I love playing scenes with Susan.

Eric, you always have been able play the straight-man so well in comedic scenes with impeccable timing,

STACY:  You’re brilliant, Eric.

ERIC:  You guys are being very nice to me.

STACY:  You are.  I remember on the day how much fun we had, but then, seeing it back and the crap that I was giving you, and just the stuff you were giving back was so beautiful, and innocent, and so alive.  It was so funny.

Does Kristen think that now that she finally got Brady into bed that she won … that she got what she wanted … even if she had to don a “Nicole” mask to do it?

STACY:  Well, no, because she still can’t be really Kristen.  I think she is grateful that she gets to be with him.  That’s one of her biggest goals: to be with Brady and she wants to have him fall back in love with her again.  But for her, now it’s all about, “How do I reveal myself so that he doesn’t get scared away?”  That’s the toughest part for her.  Kristen’s love is so deep that it goes beyond this mask.  So, how is it going to be when he sees her?   Is he going to freak out?  What’s going to happen?

ERIC:  Did you think Kristen would be a little pissed off and think, “Oh my God.  He did go for Nicole?”

STACY:  Yes!  I do, because she’s like, “Finally, I got him!  But wait a minute … did I get him because I was Nicole … or because I was Kristen?”  As Kristen, she always believes there is something deeper between them and a deep connection.  That remains a driving force to her.

Photo: JPI

ERIC:  That’s why I love these characters so much, because of you and the history of Kristen with Brady.  She’s always wanted him as much as he has wanted her.  She’s always wanted to be loved.

STACY:  Yes … and very much so.

ERIC:  Kristen had always wanted to be a part of the DiMera Empire, just as Brady has always wanted to be a part of the Kiriakis Empire, and they’ve always wanted love.  They’ve never had it.  They believe in the back of their minds that anything is attainable.  So, I can see why Kristen would just forgo the Nicole disguise and just go, “He wants me.”

STACY:  Kristen wants to believe that Brady knows it.  She says to herself, “He knows it’s me inside and behind the mask.  When he finds out, he will fall back in love with me.”

Now that she actually had sex with Brady, wouldn’t that make Kristen even more insatiable to be with him? Like, “I’ve got to have him!?”

STACY:  The fear is still .. what happens she takes this mask off?  She always says, “I’ll reveal myself, but I have to do it slowly when it is the right time.”  I think there is that built up frustration now for her, absolutely!

Arianne Zucker really has Stacy’s mannerisms down as Kristen.  It really comes into in scenes where “Nicole” goes off on someone or loses her temper.  Eric, you have worked with Arianne for years on this show.  What do you think about her performances in this storyline?

ERIC:  I have worked with Ari over the years, and I have enjoyed it a lot.  Ari did do her homework.  She did study Stacy’s tape, and she watched her mannerisms, and she took it very seriously.  I know that because she is a hard worker, as much as a goofball as she is, she does work hard, and she wanted it to be good.  I think my favorite parts were the Kristen meltdowns.  You have to understand though; Stacy and Ari get along very well!  They’re kind of two peas in a pod.  So, it wasn’t a big stretch for her to take on how Stacy would play those types of scenes.  They’re both animated, they’re both wild people by nature, and so, it was a good fit.  It was a smart idea from the writers.

STACY:  It was a good fit!

ERIC:  I’ve been out with the two of them, and it’s hard to tell the two of them apart. (Laughs)

STACY:  We are just like two cuddly bunnies.

ERIC:  They’re like flirting with each other, and hugging each other.  You find yourself thinking, “Are they going to start ordering the same food at the same time?  This is getting weird. (Laughs)

Courtesy/NBC

In the recent scene that aired; where Kristen as “Nicole” turns off the light while having sex with Brady, is she worried her plan will now go awry?

STACY:  Yes.  I think she is worried about her body because it is burned.  You know, how they take a tattoo off, and it’s as painful as can be.  Not that I’ve had that done personally.  I like my tats, but I hear it is painful.  So, in the storyline, the burn is that pain that she has and the tattoo. There’s a part of her that thinks,  she has to cover it up, and turn the lights down low.

ERIC:  “Nicole” is sleeping, and Brady is rubbing his hands over her shoulder and touching her body, and as he goes over the burn marks.  He sees a flash of the tattoo!  That is a pivotal moment when he starts to put some pieces together.   He thinks, “Woah! That’s exactly where that tattoo was.”  It’s a slow little rollercoaster ride.

In the past, Kristen then played by Eileen Davidson, drugged and raped Father Eric.  Stacy, did you ever see that story arc?  Literally the sex scene is playing on the screen at Kristen’s wedding to Brady and then all hell breaks loose.  This to say Kristen is notorious for the ways and the lengths she goes to get her men into bed.

STACY:  Yes! I saw her Eileen do those scenes.

ERIC:  You also saw how close Kristen and Brady were to their dream, to their happiness, their goal, which was they were going to marry each other.  Brady is looking upon his loved ones in this town and thinking, “I know what you all think of her, but I’m going to show you our love on this screen, and once you see the connection that we have here as a couple, you all are going to be convinced that we belong together as well.  This is the happiest day of my life,” and the screen comes up and it’s his brother banging Kristen instead.

Marlena (Deidre Hall) played the wrong DVD!

STACY:  It was so good.  See, I try to find as much info as I can on the character’s past, because all of the time I’m trying to find where these characters have been in their dark and twisted past.

Photo: JPI

ERIC:  You’re putting your own stamp on Kristen.  You got a direct call from DAYS casting department, didn’t you … when they were recasting the role?

STACY:  Yes.  You have to understand, I had two really separate characters to play when I was on Y&R.  One was a doctor, and one was this crazy passionate, wild, little minx.

ERIC:  I will say to find the wild and the beauty in one package is not easy in any town, yet alone Los Angeles.  I’m glad they called you, because you have that.  You have that villainous nature, but you also are able to show a vulnerable side to Kristen that is going to be a lot of fun and interesting to see.

Stacy is one of those people that will leap off of the screen at you and you will remember her.  She is one actress that will have fans talking about their work, like when you played crazy Patty Williams on Y&R.  The audience was on the edge of their seats going, “Oh, my God!  What is Patty going to do next?”

STACY:  I never knew what she was going to do!

Photo: JPI

Eric, has Stacy come to you at any point where she been overwhelmed by the task at hand; playing Susan while playing Kristen, etc, and the two of you have a moment where you work through some of the challenges of complex scenes  … and ones where she is playing multiple characters?

ERIC:  We’ve had many moments  to speak of.

STACY:  I always come into Eric’s room, and am like, “I’m scared!”

ERIC:  It’s funny you mention it.  We have had some very emotional scenes, and Stacy – who cares so damn much about this job and portraying this character correctly – that she gets a little overwhelmed, and the material that they give her is overwhelming for any anybody on any level.  I have looked at her in the eyes, and said, “You’ve got this gig.  You are this character.  You are knocking it out of the park.  Just do it.  Just be you.”   I can’t wait for people to see some of the stuff we have shot recently and have been doing.

Photo: JPI

Stacy, do you think Kristen can be redeemed? Many characters on daytime … and on DAYS … have done horrible things and later turned over a new leaf.

STACY:  The thing is that villains are bad and all that other crap, but they’ve got a lot of stuff going on inside and insecurities, and they’ve got a heart.  I’m sorry, the villain with a heart of gold, can be very  true.  I never see villains (and I play them a lot) as bad.  You have to find where it comes from … how far does this go … where did that little seed change … and what made them go into the dark, but also, where is the good?  You want to bring the good to it, too.

ERIC:  Let’s face it!  Star Wars is all about Darth Vader and how he became that because it’s intriguing.

Because of the pace in which DAYS tapes its episodes; do the two of you find time to run lines together before you go hit the set?

ERIC:  We are running out of time to run lines.  It’s pretty wild.  Funnily enough, I was recently filming a movie and I was so underwhelmed at the pace of everything.  I’ve gotten so accustomed to moving at this militant style, that as hard as it is, it is preferable to me now.  I almost like it because you don’t have time to overthink what you are going to do, and you end up getting more visceral and natural reactions to the material.  You can overthink a scene, and you can come to a wrong performance that way.  When you burn your fingers on a hot stove, that’s the most natural reaction you are going to get.  You can’t have ten minutes to think about how you are going to scream about that pain.

Photo: JPI

But, would you like the pace of shooting the show to be a bit slower?

STACY:  I would like to, but I do think sometimes just jumping in, and going and seeing what happens is great.  I love that.  I do appreciate that.

ERIC:  It’s scary.

STACY:  It is scary.  I would love if we would get to do a rehearsal and then two takes just to see, and then they can mix  together what happens.  Sometimes I am hard on myself as an actress.  I’ve always been.  It’s that jumping in when you only get to do one take.  You have to just give it everything you’ve got.

ERIC:  You can have a second take.  Want me to give you a little secret?  All you have to do is screw up your last line.

STACY:  I can’t do that.   I don’t even need it to be perfect because nothing is perfect.  It doesn’t matter what I’ve done if I sometimes don’t feel it.  I need to feel it when I’m on that set.  I need to feel something because when I shut down, I close myself off.  It’s like an athlete who has just got to  train as hard as they can to reach their goal.

ERIC:  You’re an Olympic swimmer!

STACY:  You’ve got to do it as hard as you can.  You practice, and you practice, and you practice, and you practice, so that when you come to that day, you do the best you can, but sometimes you are disappointed because you didn’t get that one last thing you had hoped for.

How do you view what happened to Eric with Kristen, who disguised as Nicole, tricked Brady into bed with her?  Some fans commented that that they thought it was akin to a rape.

ERIC:  No, I would disagree with that theory.  I believe there is a high degree of deception in this, but there is a willingness on behalf of Brady.  He’s not drugged.  He’s not being forced to do anything.  Deception, yes.  Rape, no.

Stacy, what do you think?

STACY:  Total deception.  There is no rape.  There is absolutely no rape.  These are willing participants; he just doesn’t know exactly who he is dealing with.

ERIC:  I appreciate the context of how somebody could construe that, and the seriousness of the matter.  I don’t think it really has a place in this particular storyline.

Do you guys think that Brady and Kristen are each other’s star-crossed lovers in a weird, twisted, bizarre way?

ERIC:  I don’t know.  I think they’re magnetism can’t be denied.  I think the hurdles that they’ve jumped through are astronomical.  Will they end up together in the end?  Who knows!  Will there ever be an end?  Who knows!  It’s definitely been one of, if not the most, in-depth relationships Brady has ever had.

Photo: JPI

And intense!

ERIC:  Yeah.  They’ve just gone through so much to be together, and when you do that, anybody who is married knows that, that’s where the good stuff is; the wars that you win together and the battles that you go through.  When you come out of the war, and you’re still together, that’s the bond.  That’s what lasts.

What would Kristen do if she couldn’t have Brady in the end?  Would she find a new obsession?  What if she could not nab her man?

STACY:  Wow!  Hmmm. (Laughs)  She’s going to get her man.  She wants her man.  She wouldn’t settle.  She’d keep fighting.  I would say to her, “Kristen, keep fighting the good fight.”

So, do you think Kristen will reveal herself to Brady sooner than later? Will Brady figure out what Kristen has been doing to get to him?  Will Brady turn Kristen away if he knew she was alive and back in action  … or would he fall back into her arms?

Daytime Emmys To Merge Younger Actor & Actress Category Into One As Gender-Inclusive Categories Are On The Rise

The upcoming 47th annual Daytime Emmys are already making some changes to key categories and specifically this one that affects daytime drama performers.  Word from Variety is that NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) is going to announce that they are combining the Younger Actor and Actress categories into one gender-neutral category

Not only will the Younger performer category be gender-inclusive, but network soap performances will be combined with digital drama series performances for the category.  Previously, for this past Daytime Emmys, NATAS had changed the Guest Performer in a Drama Series to be gender-inclusive.

This category was initially created in 1985 when it was called the Outstanding Ingenue and then from there tweaked into Outstanding Juvenile Female and Male, and more recently that morphed into the Younger Actor and Actress categories.

Former GH star Hayley Erin (Ex-Kiki) and former DAYS star, Kyle Pettis (Ex-Theo) will now be the last female and male to win the two separate categories with this new move for 2020.

Fans of film and TV have noticed that on several award shows on MTV: their Movie and TV Awards and their VMA’s, there are several gender-inclusive categories, as well as the Television Critics Association Awards who for instance doles out Outstanding Individual Achievement in Drama in comedy.
