On Sunday night, this year’s king and queen of the acting races were crowned at the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmys in a ceremony held at the Westin Bonaventure hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

The big awards were saved till the end of the night, where The Bachelor and The Bachelorette host and executive producer, Chris Harrison presented the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series award to Days of our Lives Mary Beth Evans (Kayla).  Nextg, Daytime Emmy winner, Laura Wright (Carly, GH) got a thrill when she was able to open the envelope in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series category.  That is because her longtime castmate Tyler Christopher was revealed to be the winner for his portrayal of Nikolas Cassadine.

As daytime fans know Tyler and Mary Beth worked together on GH years ago when she played Katherine Bell to his dark prince, and their on-screen alter-egos were having an affair thanks to an agenda by Helena Cassadine.

Mary Beth is just gracious, adorable, classy and so much fun. I love that she is Kayla’s biggest fan and only ever has positive thoughts to share about the shows and people she works with. It’s obvious why she’s daytime’s sweetness <3 Thanks for posting this interview 🙂

I can only applaud those comments. So glad that she is always upbeat and never bashes or disparages daytime–as she said, she’s grateful; since 5 she always wanted to act–and is obviously in love with the profession whenever, where ever she can do it. She comes off as very “real,” someone everyone wants to be around–could see her as a good neighbor, sharing her flowers and veggies from her garden–as well as her recipes. She seems to have life in perspective. Her life is full and well rounded. Bully for her! Many more years of fulfillment for her. Cheers, Mary… Read more »

I said I thought she deserved to win–as well as Finola–even called for a tie between them. 🙂

Further commenting on the Emmys and daytime drama in general: After Mary Beth won–and I heard her talking in another interview about Kayla and Patch on the run and getting to fall in love all over again, I went on youtube and watched those scenes–the “Lady in Red” dream sequence when Kayla can’t hear and she and Patch are dancing and she thinks back to dancing in that sparkling red dress with him, the “hot springs” scene, and I thought what a shame that the writers choose (or do not know how) not to write any love scenes today–the scenes… Read more »

Congrats to both. They have been around so long and they certainly worked for it. I am sorry it wasn’t aired because these two I would have been thrilled to see them accept the Emmy. Tyler and Mary Beth both seem to be real people, and what a treat to not have to see the same old Same old winners. I also remember them both on GH.

I was delighted when Mary Beth won. She has long been a favorite of mine, not simply because of Kayla, but because of how she is. She’s a wonderful example of grace. Her character was basically ignored by Days for four years. Kayla was never given a story of her own in all that time. Despite watching everyone else get stories of their own, whether they were on contract or recurring, she didn’t complain. She just resolved to do her best with what she was given, little though it was. This year, she was given an opportunity. She did some… Read more »
