As 2017 begins, Days of our Lives viewers will see a few all-time favorites returning to the canvas including popular duo, Carrie (Christie Clark) and Austin Reed (Austin Peck) and Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley).  While last time go-round, viewers saw actress Christie Clark teamed with the original Austin, Patrick Muldoon – this time it’s Austin #2, Austin Peck. who will be back in the mix with some of your favorite Salemites.

Clark spoke to Glamour.com, about Carrie & Austin’s DAYS adventure which kicks-off on the January 11th episode of the NBC sudser.  These upcoming episodes are the first that Peck and Clark have worked together in nearly 10 years.  Christie is slated for a 6 to 7 episode appearance, but more could be on the way, as she teases.

As to which Austin she would be working with in scenes this time on her DAYS guest appearances, Clark expressed how she found out: “They told me straight away. They know that Patrick (Muldoon) and I are great dear friends, as are Austin Peck and I.  I was thrilled because I haven’t worked with Austin Peck for quite some time, and it had been a while because he had been on the east coast. It was absolutely lovely to see him and work with him. “

Now, as to how Carrie comes back to the canvas: she has to rescue her mother, Anna who is trying to make Stefano pay for what she did to her and Tony. Clark weighed-in as to why she liked the story: “The fact that Carrie’s mom left her—I mean, she had Marlena and John, who raised her mostly, and then Roman hopped into the picture—I love that Carrie has turned into the woman that she is. She’s a high-flying lawyer that oddly enough can practice law in all different countries I just found out. (Laughs) That’s really spectacular! She’s got her shit together considering she should have some mommy issues, so I’m just proud of who she’s become.”

Since Stefano figures into the storyline and this month fans learned of the passing of his portrayer, Joseph Mascolo, Clark shared a few memories of working with the DAYS icon: “Joe was always just a wise soul who gave advice and was cracking jokes constantly. The first time I worked with him—I think it was ’86 or ’87—and Stefano had kidnapped Carrie and, I think, Kayla. Patch and everybody was looking for us back in the day, and Joekind of scared me with that deep voice. I was only 11, but he was the all-powerful Stefano! I remember all that. He was just always helpful with acting and directing and always willing to drop hints to the younger actors.  I do remember he always had scotch (in his dressing room) because Stefano was always drinking. (Laughs) He would say, ‘You can’t have any yet, but one day maybe you too can have some real scotch!'”

So, are you looking forward to seeing Carrie and Austin in upcoming episodes? Which Austin has been your favorite when paired with Christie Clark? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I’m glad Carrie and Austin are back, I will have to watch it now for sure. I’ve always liked Carrie and wish she was always on the show. I hope Days brings her back full time, that would keep me tuned in.

Mo…I agree with both you and dmr. I don’t care for Austin Peck as an actor…PERIOD!!!!! To me, Patrick Muldoon was always WAY MORE BELIEVABLE when he played the role of Austin Reed. TOTALLY!!!!!

Later.

Love Carrie all these years. Just wish sometimes she wasn’t so connected to Austin as she always has to leave the canvas too soon. They made Carrie and Austin a Super Couple and she can’t seem to have a story on her own. I wanted her baby to actually be Rafes Baby now that would be a good story.. So glad you are coming Home Carrie I wish you would stay…

Speaking of that baby– did they ever say what sex that child was– their name– anything? I hope they at least mention the kid when she comes to town

Watching Days is like getting on board a cruise ship with promises of fun and adventure and then sitting helplessly as the ship passes by all the destination stops as it drifts aimlessly out to sea. No returns excite me any more. No casting news whets my appetite. No spoilers intrigue me. Despite all that is ever promised, the show unfailingly under-achieves. That is not to say that aren’t some very talented actors in the cast or some great individual scenes. As always, it’s the writing which is most lackluster. This upcoming revisionist re-writing of Stefano’s death is an example of lazy and careless writing. The “Hope in prison” writing is an explosion of cliches. The Joey & Jade story is a wounded beast in need of mercifully being put down. Deimos, Dario and so many others are pencil sketches of characters with no flesh and bones. I think I might know who they’re supposed to be only because I’ve watched soaps all my life, but they have never truly been written clearly or compellingly. What’s working for me right now is Abigail & Chad & Gabi and that’s really about all that comes to mind. I support Days in principle but get very little pleasure from watching it.

Well, for the most part, I think Days has been the best it’s been lately in close to 20 years. I see a lot of potential in this headwriter Ryan something.

I’ve always wanted Christie Clark… back… fulltime… as the new Brady heroine… ala Sami…

I think Christie Clark is a sexy GOOD actress. who … with her dad Roman and Anna DiMera coming back. what’s not to like

PLUS… I am still not on board… well bored … with Rafe and Hope.

she has more baggage… and just does not a match for Rafe… no zest no sex no lasting appeal. she’s clearly too old for him.

this is where the story needs to continue… with Rafe and Carrie

I’m sad this is only for a select bit of episodes, likely due to Austin Peck’s availability; here’s to hoping they can lure Christie Clark back on a full-time basis!

Carrie and Austin are my favourite Days couple. I quit watching in 2012 when they were fired, but I will make a point of tuning in for these six or seven episodes. Days, if you’re listening, I would watch full time if you brought Carrie and Austin back full time. Just sayin’!

Austin Peck & Christie Clark are the best Austin and Carrie hands down.

I agree…Muldoon is dull.

I don’t understand how Days can say Stefano isn’t dead. Rafe helped bury the body. And especially since Joseph is now dead himself.

I am glad to see Carrie back, Austin Peck not so much. Glad to see Anna back too. She sure has nursed that vendetta a long time!

Mary SF
Mary SF

Well it is far fetched, but not more so than the other times Stefano was proven alive. I think it is a wonderful tribute to Joe to have the character alive– out there somewhere, always unseen, but his presence always felt in Salem in some way– the way they had Hope just shoot him like that and had his body thrown under some trash in a building about to come down, was one of the most disrespectful and dumbest stories they ever did– so personally I don’t care how lame bringing the character back from dead is– I think this is a better and more honorable way to have Stefano and in a way Joe’s spirit a part of the show for as long as the show is on the air.

Helen

I like the way you think ….

Mo

I didn’t like that they had Hope shoot Stefano. Considering how Stefano is the phoenix and risen from the ashes I thought it would take more than that to kill him, so no, I didn’t like the storyline. I also didn’t think the acting in the scene was very good.

If it will get Hope out of prison and us not have to be subjected to more stupid prison storylines, I’m for it too.

And in what prison do guests just saunter in and out of the secure side? It’s just so ridick!

Didnt Carrie and Austin have a baby?? Wonder will the baby be with them and is it a boy or girl?? Should be around the age of 5 by now, haha. Keep her away from Rafe and dont make Austin a wimpering crybaby like last go round!! Wish they would bring back Billie and crank up a Billie/Rafe/Hope triangle!! Kate needs more of her kids in Salem. Where the hell are Rex and Cassie Brady???

k/kay

Have not watched in over ten years but why are they still filming six months in advance and why is their a swinging door with no real plots! And why have you not begged Wayne Northup to reprise the role of Roman Brady????

I kinda figure this story line was written before his passing but I am hoping the story line will have some meat to it. Love both actors and I am excited to them again.

Wally Kurth Talks on His Daytime Emmy Nomination For DAYS As Justin’s World Is Turned Upside Down

You kind of know when you are handed the ball in the world of daytime drama, and it’s your turn to shine, especially when you get meaty material that runs the gamut of emotions. And this past Emmy season, Days of our Lives’ Wally Kurth delivered the performances of his soap career (although we suspect there is some more to come in 2020!) in the role of the grieving Justin Kiriakis.

For Wally not only played grief, but starting life anew in a romantic entanglement that can be all too familiar when someone tries to move on after the loss of the love of their life. Add to that, the complication that his son’s husband, was believed to be the person who caused the accident that killed his wife, Adrienne (Judi Evans), and with that the deck is stacked for an emotional fallout that landed Kurth in the running for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series at this year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on CBS on Friday night, June 26th, albeit in a virtual presentation.

While Wally is getting many accolades for his work on DAYS, let’s not forget the double duty he pulls on General Hospital, where this week his Ned Ashton. This week Ned is front and center during the encore presentations of the GH’ Nurses’ Ball episodes, which feature Wally singing his heart out in numerous memorable performances through the years.

Michael Fairman TV chatted with Kurth to get his thoughts and insight into his well-deserved acting nomination for DAYS, plus to find out his favorite GH Nurses’ Ball performances, and much more. Here now is what Wally had to say about it all.

Photo: JPI

I am so thrilled about this nomination because you know, I willed this to happen.  I was like, “It’s got to happen!” (Laughs)

WALLY:  You actually were saying that, and you have been very supportive and positive.  I appreciate it.

What did you end up submitting? I believe I gave you “Power Performance of the Week” honors on my site for some of them, too.

WALLY:  I do try to put together a little story in my submissions for Emmys.  I think that’s kind of important because if you’re asking someone to watch 8 or 9 minutes of just you… I didn’t want to just (not that I had this material) but bludgeon them with one sad, sobbing scene after another.  I wanted to give them a whole range of Justin and a little story.  So, I did start off where Justin was asking Adrienne to marry him, and Justin is very happy, and it’s all good, and he gets down on his knee, and you see her, and it’s like, “This is something really good,” and I also wanted to include a scene with Judi Evans in my reel.  Then, I cut to where it’s a year later, and Justin is with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) in their apartment. They are already living together, and they are discussing the anniversary of their marriages, and about the sadness of Adrienne, and she’s talking about Steve (Stephen Nichols), and then she brings up having to tell me that Adrienne died.  So, that was obviously in a flashback that happened six months earlier; where Justin is obviously very upset, and scared, and doesn’t want to hear it, and breaks down, and Kayla comforts him. Then, I did the continuation where Justin tells Kayla how much she has meant to him, and how he felt like he wasn’t going to survive, and how she came to his aid in a way to make him feel like he really has something to live for.   Then, at the very end, I did two scenes with Will (Chandler Massey) in the jail which is where Justin confronts Will, who obviously Justin thought was responsible for killing Adrienne.  It was a really lovely, really well-written scene where Justin tells him, “You’re a son to me, and you can be disappointed with a son, and you can be hurt by a son, but you never stop loving him.” I think it showed a nice range of the anger, the hurt, the happiness (because Justin tells him about Kayla), so you get an idea of what happened to Justin last year.  I thought it was a good collection of scenes that told a little story, and you could see the range of what Justin went though.  Evidently, it worked on some level because I got nominated.

In the scene with Will, doesn’t Justin also tell him, “Don’t give up on life?” in a very hankie-inducing moment?

WALLY:  Yes.  “Don’t give up.  Don’t give up on life,” which is really positive… even though he started the scene like, “I don’t even want to talk to this guy.”  Justin is there talking to Ben (Rob Scott Wilson), and Will kind of surprises him. So for Justin it;’ like, “Now I guess I’ve got to talk to Will about this,” and so he is still angry, he is still hurt, and you’re right, at the end, the scene has sort of transformed him in a way.  So, all of that stuff was just really nice, really nice scenes to get to play and very emotional.

I’ve watched most everything on the soaps from the performances to the storylines, and that one scene with the two of you was one of the best scenes I have seen in long time.  It was just so good from the writing to the execution of it. 

WALLY:  Oh yeah, I can’t even imagine a scene that was as good. Thank God that scene aired in December.  My story really didn’t get started until October/November, and all of those scenes that I included were from October, November, and December.

So, what did you think then when you found out that Chandler, along with you, and Paul Telfer (Xander) are all in the Supporting Actor category together?

WALLY:  I love it.  How great is that?  I love both of those guys.  I mean, I am such a fan of both of them.  Chandler kind of gets nominated every year, so I wasn’t surprised there.

Photo: JPI

Well, he had one year, as he pointed out to me (laughs), that he didn’t get a nomination. But, Chandler has been pretty much a perennial nominee every time he submits!

WALLY:  Yeah, Chandler just delivers.  He is a really an outstanding actor Paul, I think is great.  I love the character.  I was kind of surprised and happy for him because sometimes his character gets overlooked; just like the bad guy with the smarmy smirk and the great English accent.  So, there you go.  It’s terrific.  I think people saw more to his performance, and they should.  He works on a lot of different levels, and Paul brings a lot to the game.

And obviously, you know James Patrick Stuart (Valentin, General Hospital), since you work on that show too, and he is also nominated in your category. 

WALLY:  Yeah, and I have been a big fan of his too.  So, I was really delighted.  I called him up and left a message.  I love James.  We did a thing last year together where we went back east and played some music in some clubs,   I always think that James should be nominated.  He does such an exceptional job at bringing that character to life.  That’s not an easy thing to do either.  It’s kind of like a Xander character, and so, it is nice to see my fellow actors see the complexity in their performances and appreciate it.

Photo: JPI

Last week’s DAYS airshows contained scenes where Justin confronts Orpheus (George Delhoyo), over killing Adrienne, and Justin also goes to visit Adrienne’s grave.  I think you have another run of shows next year to submit for the Emmys (Laughs)

WALLY:  I do like to include the big four emotions that an actor has to play:  happy, sad, angry, and fear.  That is a scene where you get to see Justin really angry.  So, I will probably look to that as you get to see the anger part of the character, which I think is important.  You don’t get to see Justin very angry and lose it like that.

No, and that’s what was so great about it.  George was a great scene partner, though.

WALLY:  Oh, he was great.  George and I had a great time.  It was really awesome.  I mean, it was a challenge because it was very tricky, especially when Steve (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) came in because you know; there is a part of the character that is just like, “Please, just let me shoot.  Just let me fire a bullet and just put it over his head or something, or maybe his hands are shaking so much that he misses the target!”  I don’t know, but you do just want to let him shoot, just one bullet.  (Laughs) Another moment that I really, really loved – and I’ll probably include it next year in my submission -was that scene with Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) at the hospital.  They gave me a beautiful speech to tell her that she should be her judge and jury and sentence herself to death, a beautiful speech about how she reminded me of Adrienne.  It brought out a different side of Justin that you don’t usually see.

Photo: JPI

When I spoke to Chandler about this nomination he related to me, “I am so happy for Wally because I feel like he is often underrated.” You have always been the guy on soaps who is always delivering consistent work, but now you’ve been given a story.  So now everyone can see what you can do or are reminded of it.  It’s hard without a story on the soaps; especially playing the Emmy game.

WALLY:  It’s true.  What did Maurice Benard (Sonny, General Hospital) say?  “If it ain’t on the page, it ain’t on the stage.”  It’s really true.  Let’s face it, you can only do so much, and that’s why I don’t get too competitive.  If I lose, that’s totally fine.  I feel like I’ve already won.  Being recognized by my peers, that’s it.  Being nominated is awesome, and honestly, after this, so much of it is the material and what the actors got to do.  It’s sort of out of your control, you know.   I am happy for all of my fellow nominees.  It’s all good at this point.  I’m really, really happy.

Photo: ABC

You’ve been nominated once before, right?

WALLY:  Yes. I’ve been nominated once before, two years ago on General Hospital.  It was the year that Jane Elliot (Tracy) left.  In story, Tracy leaves, so there was all of that emotional stuff to play.  That was the year I also submitted myself for Days of Our Lives too, and I was really proud of that work.  That year saw Adrienne having to choose between Justin and Lucas (Bryan Dattilo), and she chose Lucas.  There were just some really nice scenes there that they wrote for Justin and Adrienne, and she was dealing with cancer.  Anyway, I got nominated for General Hospital, and I learned from that year that I am never going to nominate myself in the same category for both shows.  That’s just stupid.

Well, you’re everywhere.  You’re on the Nurses’ Ball encore episodes right now on GH,  

WALLY:  Oh, isn’t that funny?  All of these Nurses’ Balls, it’s hilarious.

Courtesy/ABC

Are you watching them?

WALLY:  Yes!  I watched parts of them the other night, especially my performances. It looked good; actually, they were really good.  I’m always kind of surprised like, “Wow! The dances … the singing … the production!”  I always feel like there should be more people at the Nurses’ Ball.  Shouldn’t there be more people in the seats? (Laughs)  But other than that, good stuff, good story.  It was fun to see the beginning of Ned and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) as well, you know that first year where she and Sonny were just breaking up on the red carpet at the ball, and the next year, Ned and Olivia are already together.  This week they aired where I sing with sweet little Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma), the Elton John and Kiki Dee duet, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.”

Photo: ABC

Do you have one favorite Nurses’ Ball number you performed of all-time?

WALLY:  You know, someone has been posting old Nurses’ Balls from the 90s, and I forgot that I sang “Forever Young” with Amber Tamblyn (Ex-Emily), and that was so sweet.  I also loved singing “Somewhere over the Rainbow,” in the very first one or the second year, we did it. Some of my other favorites include: “I Feel Good,” with the Quartermaine boys, and Robert Palmer’s “Simply Irresistible” – that was fun because I got to put my own vocal stamp on it, and I remember performing George Michael’s “Faith.  It was fun singing that with Lisa.

Courtesy/NBC

So, we know that this year will be a virtual Daytime Emmy ceremony, and we don’t know what that will look like yet.  So, how would you dress for it, if they had a shot of you from home during the broadcast on CBS?

WALLY:  I definitely am going to wear a suit and a tie.  I think that’s important to try to give the Emmys the dignity that it deserves.

So, thrilled that Wally received a Daytime Emmy nod for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series? What were your favorite moments of his last year? Are you enjoying seeing his performances on the encore GH Nurses’ Ball episodes? Comment below.

DAYS Susan Seaforth Hayes Talks On Her Daytime Emmy Nomination For Julie and Doug’s Emotional Storyline

When you think Days of our Lives, what would it be without the legendary Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) and her real-life and on-screen husband, Bill Hayes (Doug Williams)?

This past Emmy season, the beloved duo got a chance to shine, when they were put through a ‘heartbreaking’ predicament – Julie’s heart gives out, she is in need of a transplant, and things take a turn for the worse.

What would life be like for Doug without his Julie? How would she say goodbye to him? Fans clearly felt the sentiments overflowing from this real-life duo capturing the essence of their characters in such a raw and realistic way. So much so, that Susan landed a Daytime Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category for her work.

Already a Lifetime Achievement Award recipient along with her husband, Bill back in 2018, will Susan finally get an award for her acting for her decades of beautiful work on the long-running NBC soap opera? Fans will need to tune-in to CBS on Friday, June 26th to find out with the virtual presentation of the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards.  But for now, here is our conversation with Susan.

Photo: NATAS

Congratulations on your Supporting Actress nomination.  You have been racking up a lot of these recently, having been nominated in the same category two years ago, and also receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award along with your husband, Bill Hayes at the 45th annual Daytime Emmys in 2018.

SUSAN:  It’s really nice to be nominated, because I’ve had a few gap years.  I’ve had, what? 25 gap years between the recent nominations.

What scenes did you ultimately chose that landed you the nomination?

SUSAN:  I submitted when Julie dies.  I submitted the farewell montage scenes with Bill Hayes, and they were very moving to us… and we’ll see.  I did not submit anything snappy, or bitchy, or hysterical.  I’ve lost against hysterical every time.  Comedy has never worked.  So, I am going to try the heart and soul of soup opera: not bitchiness, but loss.

Photo: JPI

Can I ask how you got through those scenes with Bill, because it was so touching?  I don’t know how you did it.

SUSAN:  It was very difficult.  I mean, these are the things that make us so connected to the characters and the show.  This is a place where we can show the public what love means to us, which is everything.

They were beautiful scenes.  Do you remember when you did them, if you felt good about them at the time?

SUSAN:  No… no.  I didn’t know.  Everyone on the set seemed happy.  We are blessed to have feedback from out producers now, and they didn’t say, “I think you can do it better,” and, “Another take,” not that we would have anyway, because there is never time to do another take.

Photo: JPI

How did you find out that you were nominated? 

SUSAN:  One of the producers, Randy Dugan called me, or I wouldn’t have found out for a couple of days,

What are your thoughts on this being a virtual Daytime Emmys ceremony because of COVID-19?  We don’t know anything about will play out yet or what that will look like, but it is back on network TV.

SUSAN:  It’s going to be a wonderful surprise.

So, if they have the shot of the nominees, do you think you’d be dressed in comfortable clothes or more formal?

SUSAN:  Well, I’d certainly wear my best earrings if I were at home, yeah.  If my grandson can arrange us to get on the internet (we have a grandson living on our property, and he’s our live-in techy), we will get dressed up, and sit there, if that’s the way to do it.

DAYS did very well receiving 22 overall nominations and a lot of your co-stars got nomination as well.

SUSAN:  Yes, an excellent year for nominations for our show.

How many times have you been nominated now? 

SUSAN:  This makes six.

Photo: IMDB

Would it mean a lot to you to get the award?

SUSAN:  The Lifetime Achievement meant a lot.  It wouldn’t be bad to win this year.  I’ll say that.  It would be sweet for the show, since I am now the oldest living cast member of the original family – the original, original.  I’m not the original Julie, but close enough.  So, I think that would be some validation for the longevity of this original storytelling.  People look at the show and say, “Are you part of the DiMera family or the Brady family?”  I say, “I’m part of the Horton family!”

What did your husband Bill say when he found out you were nominated?

SUSAN:  (Yells) Billy, what did you say when you found out I was nominated?

BILL:  Yay!!!

SUSAN:  That’s about right. (Laughs)

Photo: JPI

What a guy!

SUSAN:  I know!  What a guy, what a guy, what a guy!

I was really happy to see your name among the other well-deserving nominees.

SUSAN:  I know you are because I know you care.  Who knows what will happen? It isn’t going to ruin our lives you know, one way or another.  But it was very nice to receive this acknowledgment from my peers.

So, are you glad Susan received a nomination for her work in her emotional storyline? Do you think she should finally receive the Emmy for her performances? Comment below.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.
