I didnt know Deidre Hall was missing…lol…i thought ‘Where They Are Now’ was about tv celebs and news makers, athletes ect., we haven’t heard from or seen in ages…we all know where DH has been including staring on primetimes ‘Our House’ many moons ago…there should be a ‘Where They Are Now’ on this message board once a month featuring former daytime and primetime soap stars from soaps past and present…j.a.t.!!!

su0000, Deidre has had a huge following since 1976. In the early 1980’s, her character was “killed” by the Salem Strangler (a favorite storyline of jimh). Her fans were in such a frenzy over the “death of Marlena” that they stormed NBC with protests which made the national news! Supposedly, Deidre had to take to phone calls to assure the fans everything would work out…Marlena’s twin sister Sam (Deidre’s real life twin Andrea) was the one murdered by the Salem Strangler!! Marlena has caused a lot of arguments within my family for many years…most of us like her, including me,… Read more »

Agreed! I don’t understand how Oprah chooses the celebrities to showcase. Many of them are still working and in the public eye.

@suOOO I know you are kidding but you might want to thank Ms Hall for helping put daytime on the map! Her chemistry with Jed Allen, Wayne Northup & Drake Hogestyn help put super couples on the map in other words she is what made daytime great ! Romance which is what Daytime use to be about she is responsible for helping put love in the afternoon. I salute you Ms. Hall!!!!!

jimh, I believe Marlena was introduced as Mickey’s psychiatrist after Mickey shot Bill when it was revealed that Bill was actually Mike’s father…BTW, in case you didn’t already know, John Amour (Michael Horton #7) recently died just shy of his 55th birthday. He played MH from 1971-1973. I would assume the first several Mike’s were babies.

I saw a tribute to him at Jason47’s Days Website/Facebook

I was loathe to post on this message board but I agree with you @jimh(leave it to beaver)…I too SMH at some of the celebrities featured that managed to stay in your face..but I really watched to see Kathy Kinney from the Drew Carey show who reminds me sooo much of a friend and girl I worked with years ago as servers in Red Lobster who was from Parma Ohio…she was a true MIMI. But it was interesting and a LOL moment when Diedre Hall was on the set of her favorite set..The Brady pub and pointed out that whole… Read more »

I wish Oprah would have picked someone who is actually missing, like Eileen Fulton, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hays, Barbara Rodell, etc. I was an ATWT fan in case you cannot tell.

Oh Deidre still around and looking great! I will never forget when she got off an airplane and I was boarding one and tons of fans were there to meet her at the gate. She had on this great outfit and I had no idea what was going on I did a double take and she had this great smile on her face. That was during the Salem strangler storyline. I was a youngster and very mad that I was leaving town and she was in town I believe for a fan event.

Yes, jimh, Michael Fairman should have a “Where Are They Now?”

Speaking of Michaels…Where in the world is Michael Leon (Pete Jannings) and Michael T. Weiss (Mike Horton)?

Those that appear on this show, are people that were one time on her talk show…and had some life changing event. If you think more along the lines of “what have they done since” it makes more sense.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
