Congratulations Drake. John Black is such a beloved character on Days and that is due to your character portrayal and the love you have for your fans. Looking forward to see where John Black goes next.

The memory I still have fresh in my mind is when Marlena had just gotten back to Salem after being held in captivity for 5 years. They were both down at the docks and when he saw her, he was so overwhelmed. Of course that was the beginning of him finding out he wasn’t Roman like we all thought he was.

Oh, I remember watching in the ’90’s during high school summer break-with John, Marlena, and Kristen! I used to love the show! Congratulations to Drake!

Congrats Drake on a very much deserved long run with the soap . Cheers to another long run with the show . Of all the stories without a doubt in my mind it has to be the john and diana ( genie francis ) love story from 1987 to 1989 . It was special , superbly acted and very well written . back then john thought he was roman . we want Genie Francis back on Days for good as Diana ! I have 40 friends of mine including my neighbour Bessie who will watch the soap again if that were to happen . All the best Drake . Fingers crossed for a return of Genie Francis to Days as Diana .

As much as I like Genie, I don’t really think the character of Diana Colville would have much of a place in the current population of Salem. She was brought in the first time only because Deidre Hall took a break for several years and with her presumed dead they had to pair up John (or “Roman” as he was then supposed to be) with somebody.

They were a good pairing for the time, but there’s not a snowball’s chance in my front yard that John would ever choose her over Marlena

The only possible storyline I could think of for Diana is if she turns out to be Stefan’s real mother – which of course, would make John his father. Another inside joke for the GH fans, as we saw recently when Stefan met Steve & Kayla would follow, of course. And I could actually see Stefan as being a half-brother of either Paul or Brady more than I could see him as Chad’s brother.

But that’s only a month’s worth of story after that? What would they do with her then… And I say that knowing who is currently writing this show and how he hates writing for anybody over 50 (unless they are one of his old pets from OLTL)

Gotta mention the Miami Vice ripoff summer storyline, back in the Days when John thought he was Roman (and ironically Chris Kositchek was in that storyline too… which would confuse any newer Days viewers if they watched the clips)

When was that? 1985? 86?

I liked Chris when he was involved with Mary Anderson…i still think of those days when he is on but i have accepted him as Roman-well sometimes!!!!

They acknowledged him because he like Hall and Alfonso did 4000 episodes! He is one of the sweetest men I have ever known he has aged greatly and he never has a bad word to say about anybody ! Love the grey hair

DAYS’ Christie Clark Shares Coronavirus Health Update

Days of our Lives fans love her as as Carrie Brady, and are often very happy when they find out Christie Clark is back for a visit taping episodes of the NBC soap opera.  But that’s not what’s happening right now.  Right now, we need Christie to get all her strength back.

Clark shared via her Instagram today a health update on her battle with the coronavirus that hit both her and her husband while they have been living in the United Kingdom.

Christie expressed: “Oh my goodness, just starting to feel ok on this end. My husband Tom and I have had coronavirus fairly bad. Not as bad as some, no hospital needed. Hope your all well! I’m sure at this stage you all know of someone with it? When you get it, you can’t call the grandparents for help, cause they will get sick. We know about 10 people in our little circle that have had it. Like clockwork, Day 7,8,&9 were tricky and haven’t been able to taste food for a while. So excited to be in the land of the living again & start exercising…soon. Thanks for all the love. Stay safe!”

Send your well-wishes to Christie and Tom as they are on currently getting stronger and recovering from the virus via the comment section below.
