Days Of Our Lives

A Day of DAYS 2011

It was time for the fourth annual A Day of DAYS fan fest and press day held once again at the famed Universal Studios City Walk, in Universal City, California. The event which was held this year on November 5, 2011, gave the On-Air On-Soaps crew an opportunity to chat with the current cast of NBC’s Days of our Lives that were in attendance for some fun and revealing video interviews that we think any DAYS or avid soap fan will enjoy!

To view the Video Gallery to the right on this page and watch interviews with the DAYS cast, remember to hit the NEXT GROUP button to the right of the + symbol on the thumbnail gallery and it will shuttle you to the next set of videos. On-Air On-Soaps will be adding the remaining videos throughout the week totaling sixteen in all.

On-Air On-Soaps was once again in our same designated spot at the Samba Restaurant in the mezzanine over looking the entire press gathering, and we had a birds-eye view of the hustle and bustle of the day. As in year’s past, most of the actors were paired off in a rotation. (Some were done solo) So, half the stars took part in meeting the fans in the morning rotation, half rotated through the press corp. Then, they switched off for the afternoon session. This year you can view interviews with: James Scott (in two parts), Chandler Massey and Camila Banus, Melissa Reeves and Peter Reckell, Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn, Freddie Smith and Casey Deidrick, Galen Gering, Molly Burnett and Shawn Christian, Patrick Muldoon and Christie Clark, Eric Martsolf and Sarah Brown, Mary Beth Evans and Peggy McKay, Matthew Ashford and Josh Taylor, John Aniston and Suzanne Rogers, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes, Terrell Ransom Jr. and Lauren Boles, and Renee Jones and James Reynolds. MIA for the day were: Alison Sweeney, Kristian Alfonso, Joe Mascolo, and Lauren Koslow, thus, we regret to inform you there are no interviews with them presented here.

While we were having fun inside, the fans and the actors were getting an opportunity to get acquainted or re-acquainted at the autograph tables. During a lunch break, many of the DAYS stars took to the main stage for an incredible Salem rock concert in which DAYS executive producer, Ken Corday, led the band and the performers on stage by playing the drums as their “extra-special” musician for the day! The talented Salemite singers included: Wally Kurth, Eric Martsolf, Patrick Muldoon, Kyle Lowder (in a special appearance), Bill Hayes, Molly Burnett, Kate Mansi and more, who brought down the City Walk house! Later, the entire cast in attendance took part in the annual Q&A giving the “must-know” answers to the fans from their questions. After all, there is nothing like a DAYS fan, who are some of the most passionate in soapdom!

As another year at A Day of DAYS came to it’s conclusion, we reflected on the tremendous accomplishments from the DAYS cast, crew, and production, who through turbulent times in front of the camera with major casting changes, and behind-the-scenes with many executive, production, and writing changes have continued to try to keep the show alive and vibrant in a very difficult time in the soap opera genre.

To the right on our A Day of DAYS 2011 page, On-Air On-Soaps has also prepared a very special photo gallery of some memorable images with the cast from the fourth annual event complete with our signature captions.

Make sure to click on the NEXT GROUP icon located to the right of the + symbol on the photo gallery thumbnail groupings. That way you won’t miss an image! Or, you can watch it as a Slideshow!

In the end, it was a time for the actors to say “thank you” to you, the fans, for keeping the faith, tuning-in, and letting you know that they feel the love that you give them, even though we are all separated by our television screens. You, the fans, are as much a part of Salem, as the actors and the characters are that you love to watch every day. So, until next year’s celebration …

DAYS Brandon Barash On Stefan’s Resurrection: “You’ll See Some Revenge, Corporate Takeovers, Losing a Memory … Maybe Gaining of Memories”

Dr. Rolf is at it again on Days of our Lives! While Jake DiMera has met his maker, apparently his twin brother, Stefan O DiMera is coming back to life.  That sets the stage for Brandon Barash to reprise his original DAYS role.

In a brand new interview with his on-screen brother, Dan Feuerriegel (EJ) on the Days of our Lives You Tube Channel, Barash talks on what viewers can expect once Stefan is completely back in action, and how he feels about taking on the darker twin once again.

Brandon teased: “You’ll see some revenge, corporate takeovers, losing a memory … maybe gaining of memories.”  With Stefan back in the DiMera mix, look for the two brothers to not always see eye-to-eye. Barashs shared that they’ll be, “Butting heads for sure”.

Meanwhile, will Stefan and his true love, Gabi (Camila Banus) reunite once she knows he is alive? Barash weighs-in on that and more ‘burning’ questions.

You can check out the chat below.

Now, let us know, are you glad that Stefan O DiMera is back on the Salem canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Brandan Barash Shares Reaction to Jake’s Death on Days of our Lives: “It Was Fun Getting To Know You”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jake (Brandon Barash) met his untimely demise, when he was shot by a mugger.  Thus, signaling what would seem to be the end of the line for the character.

However, on today’s episode of the NBC soap opera, Jake visited a grieving Ava (Tamara Braun), so perhaps there is more than a ‘ghost of a chance’ that Barash is sticking around.

As previewed exclusively last month during our virtual interview with DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati …the Salem scribe revealed there would be another death in Salem, following the murder of Abigail Deveraux DiMera (Marci Miller), and the character would be ‘dead-dead’.

However, speculation is running wild that with the return of Dr. Rolf, that perhaps Jake will be resurrected … or Barash will once again play Jake’s twin, Stefan O. DiMera!

On Instagram, Barash had some fun with Jake’s demise with comparison side-by-side photos – one of which features Barash as Jake covered in blood, and reading the Handbook for the Recently Deceased!

Barash captioned his pic: “How it started/how it’s going. #ripjake It was fun getting to know you. 🙏🥃”

So, what do you think about DAYS killing Jake? Do you think Brandon will be sticking around Salem? If so, as who? Comment below.
