Days Of Our Lives

A Day of DAYS

It was dazzling DAY of DAYS event this year. The second annual press and fan event was held again at City Walk at Universal Studios, California. The Samba Restaurant is where On-Air On-Soaps parked itself for most of the day to gather together the video interviews you see with your favorite Salemites. While the throngs of DAYS fans were outside getting the opportunity to meet and greet and get their autographs and picture taken with their favorite star from DAYS, we were inside next to the crew from The Bonnie Hunt Show whose on-camera host was the winner of the Biggest DAYS Fan Contest. The actors were mostly paired in twos. Some made logical sense, and some did not. This was a decision by NBC to ensure that all the actors rotated through the seemingly over 35 publications, print and television outlets, the largest contingency we have seen at a fan event. While half the stars took part in meeting the fans in the morning rotation, half rotated through the press. Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes, Eric Martsolf and Lindsay Hartley, Galen Gering and Alison Sweeney, Suzanne Rogers and Molly Burnett, Shelley Hennig and Mark Hapka and finally, Taylor Spreitler and Casey Deitrick stopped by and chatted with me. Of note: Eric and Lindsay gave a fun, entertaining and revealing interview. Galen and Ali talked about Sydney’s baby switch and their mutual admiration of each other, and Suzanne Rogers revealed that something huge is going to happen to Maggie Horton in the New Year!

After the first round, everyone took a break and got the opportunity to grab some lunch and it was there that I got to catch up with Crystal Chappell for the first time that day. Crystal had never attended a DAYS fan event quite like this, and her return to Carly seemed to be something the fans in attendance wanted to know about….namely…would she get together with Bo? Will Hope be out in the cold? And speaking of Hope, Kristian Alfonso was not in attendance and sadly, Peter Reckell had to leave early so he was not able to do any press interviews from the event, but fans did get to meet Crystal and Peter in the morning rotation of the Meet and Greet. Alison Sweeney’s husband, Dave and her kids were with her at the event and it was nice to see the family together, which we seldom do.

It was back to work after lunchtime for the second rotation which brought us Louise Sorel and Peggy McKay in a hilarious interview about being “fired”, Vivian’s plan for Carly and being under-utilized in your soap role, Little Ciara, the cute Lauren Bolles, Crystal Chappell ( who is always fabulous to interview), The Carvers, and Nadia Bjorlin and Wally Kurth. Sorry DANLOE fans, Shawn Christian was not at the event, he was off filming a movie, so Nadia was paired awkwardly with Wally. But, the two of them gave an awesome interview as you will see. Then Joe Mascolo, Arianne Zuker and James Scott, and finally Bryan Dattilo and Lauren Koslow finished our press day. After it was a “wrap’, we took our cameras out to the finale of the event where fans got to watch upcoming promos of November DAYS, and a fun-filled opportunity to participate in a Q&A with the entire cast. As the soap opera rock stars that this cast is, they were introduced one by one to the main stage and took their seats to prepare for the fans questioning. After all was said and done to celebrate DAYS 44th anniversary, a cake was wheeled out to the stage where long time veteran Suzanne Rogers, cut the cake to symbolize another year well done by DAYS, and that the show which has gone through so much controversy and turmoil, is back as one of daytime’s gems, and with any luck will continue on for many more years to come.
