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 …

Current Days of our Lives and former All My Children reboot stars, Cady McClain (Jennifer, Days, Ex-Dixie, AMC) and Rob Scott Wilson (Ben, Days, Ex-Pete AMC) chat with Michael Fairman in an enlightening and exclusive conversation for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.

McClain, who recently took over the role of Days of our Lives beloved heroine Jennifer Horton from mainstay Melissa Reeves (who chose to stay with her family in Nashville during Covid-19 thus forcing the series to recast the role for now) talks about stepping into the key part of the Salem canvas, plus the recent Jennifer/Kate fight over Jack (Matthew Ashford), and how the legacy series is coping with production during Covid-19.

Cady is no stranger to be a recast.  She was the second actress to play Dixie on ABC’s All My Children, as well as the second actress to play Rosanna on As the World Turns, and she had previously taken over the role of Kelly Andrews on The Young and the Restless.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
