In a wonderful, heartfelt ceremony and presentation on Thursday, Days of our Lives iconic, Deidre Hall (Marlena) became the 2,581st star on the famous Hollywood Walk Of Fame in the field of television.

Hall’s special day was marked by the attendance of longtime and beloved castmates, NBC and Corday Production executives, fans, and her family: two sons, David and Tully, her twin sister, Andrea (Ex-Samantha and Hattie, DAYS) and her brother, all were on hand to share this special moment with Deidre for her enduring career.

DAYS Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) was asked by Deidre to speak at the event, in which Susan let everyone in attendance know that it is really Deidre Hall who has the qualities that would make a good president, and she should consider running right now!

On-Air On-Soaps spoke with Deidre directly following her receiving her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  We asked what she thought of the turn-out and support from the DAYS cast, who all shared with us what a wonderful moment they thought this was for Hall.  Deidre responded to their enthusiasm by noting, “It’s an extraordinary day, and nobody does this one alone, especially in daytime.  I’m standing here with 50 people beside me, who all are just wonderful, and supportive, and giving, and nobody gets here without that.  Everybody I love the most is right here with me today.”

When asked what it was like having her two sons with her to see all of this public attention and love showering down upon her, Deidre shared:  “It occurred to me, and you will understand this, when my children were small I kept them away from pictures, and now that they are older and self-sustaining and mature, they have not seen me in this element, and on a red carpet being photographed.  They have seen it in movies with the paparazzi and all.  But, when it’s your mom, and all of those flashbulbs are going off, and people are yelling, ‘Deidre!,’ now I want to get them home now and see what they have to say!”
