NBC’s Days of our Lives has a lot of storylines planned for its 2016 run as the show is now well into its golden anniversary season.  In this week’s issue (1/4/16) of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, the publication has its annual 2016 preview section for all four network daytime dramas, which is a must read for soap fans.

In the case of DAYS, executive producer Ken Corday teased fans of  the sudser on what to expect in all the major storylines including: a New Year’s Eve tragedy, the future of Steve (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail (Kate Mansi), John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena (Deidre Hall), Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Rafe (Galen Gering), and others.

Corday also revealed a game-changer to happen sometime in 2016 relating:  “A major character is murdered in cold blood. This will be the biggest thing in Salem and the ripple effects will be felt for many, many months.”

So this begs the question:  What character do you will think be killed off as part of this  murder storyline that will begin at some point in 2016?  Share your theories in the comment section below!

Seriously? they think murder and mayhem is what we want to see? Ugh! I want to hear about all the love stories coming up, some adventure, maybe a big wedding or two! DAYS is WAY past due for this.

I agree…too much gloom and doom…i havent felt well in recent days and hoping for stuff like you suggested to perk me up…Days used to do well with love and adventure-i dont know what makes them think otherwise…i wouldnt mind a good old fashioned wedding…i just went on youtube and watched a big soap wedding from Another World made back in 1968 and it was beautiful…they used a huge church filled with many extras and had a hall for the wedding party filled with guests and there was music and dancing…no cliched interuptions with a shooting or claiming the groom… Read more »

Really, what is with the unhappy theme of this show. Why not bring some comedy, love. I can’t wait to watch the show and all I get is sadness. Check rating on some of the comedy shows. In this age of real life murders we need good time shows to take our minds off the reality of our real world.

To make you feel better, Eastenders’ post-Christmas episode just saw one of its characters trapped in a car trunk and was crushed to death over at a junkyard.

Sorry you haven’t been feeling well, Jimh 🙁 … I know what you mean though, because the soaps helped me get through a really hard time in my life, they are more than just fluff, I wish they’d get the credit they deserve for brightening peoples’ lives and giving them something to look forward to every day. Not everyone has a perfect life. They are a lifeline for shut-ins, etc. There needs to be a balance between “gloom and doom” and “love and happiness”. The characters go through some really hard things, but at the end of the arc, there… Read more »

I agree. I like murder mysteries on Days. For awhile there, I thought a murder on New Year’s Eve on Days of Our Lives was becoming a yearly tradition. So far, Days Of Our Lives has not been renewed past September 2016. I assume they will be filming for August 2016 in 2 more months, since they are filming 5 1/2 months to 6 months ahead of schedule. So go ahead and let Days of Our Lives kill off anyone they want to, to bring the television viewers back into it, if Days is going to be cancelled. I wish… Read more »

It all sounds great! I have been watching Days for 48 years and love every minute of it. I wonder if it will be Stephano because he is looking tired, or Victor because Caroline is seeing visions of him grabbing his chest. I do hope that it’s not Jennifer th as t gets into the accident. Great job Days writers!

Charlotte
Guest
Charlotte

No it isn’t Jennifer that will be killed, it will be Daniel. From what I have read both cars are involved in the accident and Daniel doesn’t make it.

Perhaps Batty Ben will escape from the nuthouse and murder Chad after finding out that the baby is Chad’s and not his. I also think that Stefano’s days are numbered and crazy Andre will take over as Salem’s new villain. Victor may also die soon, perhaps from his heart attack. Caroline will soon follow him. I’m also thinking that Ava will murder either Steve or Kayla.

robert monches
Guest
robert monches

We all must remember that Joseph Mascolo (Stefano) is 85 years old, and John Aniston (Victor) is 83, and Peggy McCay (Caroline) is 87, so they can’t last forever.

Kill off Stephano!
Patch and Kayla–take to the moon and back!
Chad and Abby–shooting star-crossed lovers–bring togehter in a heart-wrenching climax–great actors with great chemistry.
Rafe and Hope–there’s hope for a great and tender love story–Galen does it all with those melting brown eyes–mmmm.

I would vote Stefano, too. He has been dead and ‘risen’ like 11 times, maybe more. So if he was murdered, how would we know he is REALLY dead again? LOL!

Rusty

I think it will be Victor. He has lots of skeletons in the many closets.

I always dread when they bring Stefano back. Kill him off for good. And how many times is Chad going to lose his memory? Enough already.

I did hear or rather read somewhere I think that Joe Mascalo was looking to retire.

Blake

I don’t blame him, it sounds like he’s not in the best of health. But it’s a strange world knowing that Bo and Stefano will never be on Days again.

Phil
Guest
Phil

I know I am in the minority and I am sure to be bashed, but I never was a fan of Peter Reckell, I think he was a horrible actor. I do however think Bo should have lived. Of Reckell didn’t want to stay (Which like it or not was the case.) They should have recast the role. Ricky Paull Goldin (ex-Gus, GL) would have been a good recast. Heck bring back Robert Kelker Kelly even!

SZima
Guest
SZima

John Aniston/Victor is also wanting to retire, or so I’ve heard. Either Stefano or Victor getting killed would rock a lot of lives.

James McDonald
Guest
James McDonald

I agree with Phil. I wouldn’t mind if they brought back Robert Kelker Kelly as “Bo” or another character. He has another career now as a pilot or teaching in pilot school, something like that, but he made a special appearance on General Hospital as a villain during their anniversary and he was outstanding. He has found the fountain of youth too. He was in wonderful shape and looked young.

James R. Poissant

The first name that came to my mind was Stefano. This could be tough since he is the Phoenix and can rise from the ashes which we have seen many times before but I am also keeping in mind that Ken Corday did say a little while back that he really doesn’t want to do anymore of these “back-from-the-dead” storylines so even if it is Stefano, we’re not going to believe he is actually dead. Who could get us to feel shock for months after the murder? I’m willing to say Roman but I could be way off base.

Charlotte
Guest
Charlotte

Or it could be John Black because his life has been threatened.

fginaspy

It will be Daniel. I love the idea of killing Stephano, but know one would care.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

I dont think he will be the murdered victim…i believe Danials death will be the tragedy on New Years Eve and he will be killed by a drunk driving Erik!!

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

That’s the most logical premise, Jimmy. I think everyone is not too keen on Stefano, so his loss wouldn’t be such a big deal to most; except, of course, that I would miss Joseph. He’s been such an outstanding figure for so long, he has become a permanent fixture, lol. Would his murder be shocking to anyone? Daniel is the probable answer, I guess.

Charlotte

Jennifer is the one driving the car that crashes.

Daniel dies from the car crash, not cold blood

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

That’s right, deb. I wasn’t thinking. If Daniel is to die from a crash, then, you’re right. It is definitely not murder. So, it could still be Stefano….not shocking, though. Roman? John? Caroline? Major character could actually be anyone that’s been on the show a few years. Happy New Year.

Victor much more fun to watch when he has a edge to him…don’t get me wrong I love Maggie, but apparently one of Victor’s misdeeds of the past is going to come back to haunt him according to spoiler’s/rumors and I’m going to thoroughly enjoy watching it all unfold

Oh, Louise, I love Victor. I’ll take him any way I can. Maggie is not in the running for me.

Rafe and Hope = DOA (dead on arrival!) That’s what happens when, aside from being forced and contrived, the 32 legacy of your show’s signature, iconic supercouple is infringed upon by a dull interloper whose feelings are completely UNreciprocated by the surviving member of aforementioned supercouple. #Nope2Rope

Both KA and GG deserve better!

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Thank you very much, MP. I simply detest the idea of a Hope and Rafe liaison. Hope has not one ounce of spice in her body. Not now, anyway….she left it somewhere along the way between the 80’s and the present….my grandmother’s words, which I consider sacrosanct. As Nancy said, Rafe is just too yummy to be wasted on Hope.

Ces
Guest
Ces

Lol!! I read about Hope not having any spice; giggled and looked up to see the author …. Why, it’s you CeeCee!!! Cracking me up but yeah, twiggy is no longer captivating. Sorry, i had to go there but Hope & Rafe – no way! Galen is too hot for her. Kinda liked him with Kate

Blake
Guest
Blake

You are right about Hope not having spice. I don’t think she has since the Princess Gina storyline.

Louise
Guest
Louise

I love it. I lost all my interest in Hope during the stupidity of the princess Gina story and have never been able to enjoy her completely since. IMO the story about Bo dying was only good because of such a wonderful performance by Peter Reckell. Watching Hope dissolve into a crazy irritation mess isn’t entertaining. Bo gave her something to do in what he said to her after he died…but this revenge thing ain’t it…get it together girl and figure out what he really meant

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

@Ces.
Lol and ohhh, yeah!! Kate can turn on a piece of wood with one sultry look……oops, that’s a mere coincidence…HaHa. Rafe and Kate could sure steam up the screen! He is one hot pepperone. Hope more like flat-bread. She is neither here nor there for me. Too ordinary, as it were. I don’t get her at all. She was eager enough to marry pie-face without regrets…now, she’s all gung-ho on revenge, which suddenly surfaced because of her great love for Bo? Louise is right…”get it together” and analyze Bo’s words. Without Peter, Hope is nothing, at this point.

Andi
Guest
Andi

Hope is old enough to be Rafes mother! I think they need to put him with Abe’s daughter or bring back Carrie for him. That would really drive Sammy mad.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Watch out, Andi or you’ll be called ageist by a certain busy-body. LOL. I agree with you. But, sometimes it depends of whom we are speaking. Some of us loved Rafe with Kate. and, yes, I liked Carrie with him, as well.

Charlotte
Guest
Charlotte

IT really doesn’t matter that Hope is old enough to be Rafes’ mother. It is where is in his heart and right now that is Hope. And besides Bo knew that Rafe loved her that is why he ask Rafe to take care of her, and being the person that he is he is going to do just that…. On with Rafe and Hope.

Jaime
Guest
Jaime

I do think Rafe is being unduly propped. That he is on almost every single day and the forcing of Hope prior to even the death of Bo is just too much and far too unnatural.

Sorry guys but Rafe is cute but a total soap stereotype.

Give me more of Steve Johnson and his lady love. Now that is chemistry.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

I still think its Stephano but it could also be Victor, Caroline, Doug…just about anybody and it could be a shocker…Days better be careful who they kill off next-alienating fans like Days had done in 1980 could hurt the show and you don’t have that many soap viewers like you had back then to help you recover…so far the teens acting is just so-so and not good enough to carry this show into the future if the show even has one…i still like Days and hope it sticks around…just know it could do much better than just killing off characters… Read more »

Stefano has been “killed” many times on Days Of Our Lives, but he always returns alive. Remember, Stefano is “The Phoenix”. Not even fire can kill him forever. The Phoenix rises again. I know that Joseph Mascolo is getting closer to 90, so if he feels it is time for retirement then okay. But if he wants to stay on Days Of Our Lives until he naturally passes away, I would accept that too. They wouldn’t dare kill Caroline Brady again, although Peggy McCay is 85 now. Maybe it is “Daniel” they will kill off since he is leaving the… Read more »

CeeCee

I agree about Kassie, Ces. Although she is one of my faves, as every actor/character on OLTL, I did not feel a connection to Eve on Days. I don’t think she felt a connection to the soap, herself. And, of course, as good of a thespian she may be, she does not have that come-hither-look or sexiness about her.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Kassie DePaiva already confirmed she’s not being killed off the soap, leaving the door open for her potential return.

Ces

Phil, she’s a bit old looking for the part for starters. She isnt sexy or Eve like, she’s very twangy and I just dont care for her on this show. She fit in with the Buchanans over on OLTL not with this group.

I dont see any reason why Days would bring her back.

Andi

Better not be Victor, Maggie, or Caroline. Murder André I never did like him or Tony. Steve and Kayla can go. Roman can go you never see him except when he’s arresting a family member. I would bet it’s maybe Phillip. No one likes this new guy anyway. Someone should shoot the casting director after the awful job they have done since Will, Clyde, Jordan and Ben. I had to fast forward past all of them so much that I was missing most of the show.

Susan
Guest
Susan

I disagree. I want Andre to stay around because he is so good at what he does.Corday did says that a major character, which Philip is not, will be murdered. By the way, you cannot say that no one likes the new Philip. You can only speak for yourself. It is not the casting director’s fault that the writers messed up the storylines involving Will, Clyde, Jordan and Ben. As to who is going to be murdered my guesses are John Black, Belle or Stefano.

carol
Guest
carol

Maybe it will be Caroline,or perhaps she will see who the murder is,I wouldn’t mind it being Jennifer,even Marlana or John there story does nothing for me at all frankly I find if to be pretty dull and boring.. I like Eve. I dont think they would kill Doug or Julie would they ? Then again I never did think that Will would be killed off either,Oh goodness who is the murderer going to be this time.?

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

it was simply a matter of time…. for “Doug” and Julie to bequeath…. JJ and Abs… that it is their wish that both of them continue to carry on the Horton Tradition

seeing this thread.. I thought…. is Doug going to die
then for whatever reason… Doug not mentioning to Jennifer that she continue the christmas tradition

could it be Jennifer who is brutally murdered?

her character… IS most certainly a “Major” one at that

so … my guess is it could be Jenn

I’m hoping they bring back grandma Laura Horton…

Andi
Guest
Andi

It’s going to be an old enemy of Victor and they will kill Phillip.

Apparently Victor framed his own brother for a crime. And now his son’s brother is coming to Salem. So my guess is that it will be Victor who will be murdered by the this vengeful nephew. Or this vengeful nephew will kill Maggie or Brady.

I’m gona say,Caroline will be murdered in cold blood,because of the serum,she’s been having visions of Victor dying,an he moved her in his house to protect her,just the little signspointing to this an I beleive Philip will somehow be involved. Just my thoughts,but this would post certainly rock Salem.

I’m thinking Victor. It will look like a heart attack, but they will find out that some one gave him something to induce a heart attack….thus making Caroline visions come true.
(she may solve the murder thru visions as well, after several visions lead up to the culprit that gave Victor the drug) It will be Philip, he’ll give Victor the drug that Vic had Caroline take only Vic will have a adverse reaction & die.

Blake
Guest

But in cold blood means they’ll be killed so that leaves Victor out. It seems it will be Stefano.

In the spoilers for DAYS it’s revealed that Victor framed his own brother who was sent to prison. Now the brother’s son Deimos is coming to Salem looking for revenge. That could mean killing Victor.

Perhaps the show needs a name change….”Deaths of Our Lives”. Why Corday & Co think this constant killing off of characters will draw an audience is beyond me.

The sad part is that unlike “Edge of Night” ,which featured murder & other crimes as a staple, Days doesn’t even do it that well. Most stories fall flat.

Agreed! 5 murders in 2 or 3 months is ridiculous. Plus if I have to see that ridiculous outdoor wake/cemetery set one more time….. Salem is suppose to be in the Midwest. When it’s 20 degrees outside in the winter, us mid-westerners go inside. Wakes and funeral services are done indoors. We don’t sit out in a green garden in the middle of winter with a coat.

I think Corday is cleaning house. DOOL has not been renewed past September 2016. NBC has not said if they are going to cancel the show or not. All of these murders has been in an effort to bring more views to DOOL to convince NBC to renew. That means bringing in a new younger fan base. And the only way to do that is to make DAYS exciting and fun to watch.

I have watched this show for almost a year now and I have to say it is the most depressing and boring soap I have ever watched. The majority of the characters are soooo boring. Nothing watchable about Hope, Jennifer, Abigail, JJ, etc. And to make watching Hope even more boring, they add two teens that can’t act their way out of a paper bag and add nothing to the show, as soon as a scene starts at hopes house I fast forward.

I’ve been trying to hang in there, but it doesn’t sound like 2016 will be any different.

More than likely, the murder victim is going to be Stefano DiMera. As for whom the murderer is: inintially, I immediately thought to myself, it’s Andre. But…… It could very well be Sami too. Even Chad for that matter. Perhaps that brainwashing gig backfires???? Hmmmm… At any rate, though it saddens me to be losing such a prolific actor as Joe Mascolo, I fully understand that [eventually] all great things must come to an end. Joe is one of Days’ most endeared, and feared actors in his role of Stefano. Many loved to hate the character which Joe has played… Read more »

I think Eve will be the murder victim, by someone who is shooting for Eduardo – which will propel the John Black story forward and get rid of a poorly written character at the same time.

They need to just stop the darkness and bloodshed now. I think chads brainwashing immediately after escaping bens murderous rampage was way too much. They are close to alienating everyone. Where’s the romance and joy and adventure?

Someone needs to replace Ken Corday, ge is driving this show into the ground. Murder and ppl dying do not equal ratings. What is it with soaps and sensationalism?? Why can’t people just leave town anymore?? The past 3 months on DAYS have been the most depressing EVER. I hope a regime comes in a resurrects Will Horton. MARK MY WORDS, like Frankenstein from AW, and Maureen from GL, DAYS WILL regret doing that one day very soon. Ken also needs to step up and own that he killed the gay storyline due to bigotry and ppl complaining, and he… Read more »

The only way to salvage this 50 year brand is for Sony to buy out Ken Corday. NBC has been cool at best promoting the show, and they are a very gay friendly company that will not want to be associated with a blatantly homophobic show. (Yes, there was lots of death, but Will’s was unnecessary, cruel, shot with the assumption the audience wanted to see him suffer, Sonny sat in the second row, Will was weak and didn’t fight back, Sonny abandoned Arianna…the homophobic beats went on and on…) Days could have easily survived cancelation by marketing itself to… Read more »

Honestly, the writing for the end of Will was so blatantly homophobic, I think Dylan Patton is too good for the role, let alone Guy Wilson or Chandler Massey. Why would any actor join this show to play any character, when you see how a new writing regime can turn on you and your fans with maximum hatred and malice. Ken Corday is the hateful bully in chief, and yes, the only way to save this show is if Sony buys him out. Cordy, Higley and Griffith need to be gone before I would ever trust this show again to… Read more »

Get rid of John and Phillip. They are so boring! This memory loss thing with Chad is getting very old and boring! Put Chad and Abbie together! They always need a little action or murder to keep things interesting but keep it real. Remember the audience is not a bunch of morons. Maybe they will kill off Marlena. She has been on the show a long time. The new Ciarra is terrible, as well as most of the teenagers.

Days Of Our Lives

Kevin Spirtas Talks ‘After Forever’s’ Digital Special ‘Riley’s Unforgettable School Project’, The Loss of Michael Slade, and a Chance to Reprise DAYS Craig Wesley

The coronavirus pandemic has put to the test many content creators on just how they would keep their projects moving forward in ways they never dreamed of. However, out of that situation has come some of the most compelling, unique series, specials, and features currently streaming for viewers. One of which is Riley’s Unforgettable School Project, brought to you by the team from the six-time Daytime Emmy Award-winning series, After Forever.

Former Days of our Lives star, Kevin Spirtas (Ex-Craig Wesley) has starred in and created the first two seasons of what has become the most honored Emmy-awarded LGBTQ-themed drama series on any platform.  Along with his ‘After Forever’ writing/producing partner, the late Michael Slade (DAYS, OLTL, Passions, Another World), the two also conceptualized and delivered this latest documentary-style offering now on Amazon Prime Video.

What makes Riley’s Unforgettable School Project so noteworthy is not just how they were able to execute the series based on fictional 11-year-old Riley’s virtual school project and utilize its cast, which includes: Spirtas, Cady Huffman, Jamison Stern, Lenny Wolpe, Erin Cherry, Anita Gillette, Christopher J. Hanke, and Finn Douglas, but that it was made while Slade was succumbing to his battle with cancer, and that this special marks the final script from this talented writer.

 

Michael Fairman TV spoke with Spirtas about making the special during Covid-19, how the death of Michael Slade has made a lasting impact on his life, what After Forever has personally meant to him, and how an official third season is still in the works, and … if he would consider a return to Salem and Days of our Lives, should they come a-calling.  Here’s what Kevin had to say about it all.

Photo: AfterForever

I think the entire story of this digital special has become even more meaningful with Michael Slade’s passing. What was the genesis of the concept? You wanted to continue the telling of the story of After Forever … but we are all in the middle of a pandemic?

KEVIN:  Yes and… when we filmed season 2, we had the scripts for season 3 already completed. It was our hope and desire to film them at the same time, back-to-back, so that we would have had all of our cast and crew together, and we could have gotten through it because we’ve always imagined this story being told in a trilogy so to speak – a beginning, middle, and end to Brian (Spirtas) and Jason, (Mitchell Anderson) and Brian’s healing or his steps towards healing through grief.  Schedules turned out that they couldn’t really work out for us to hold all the people and hold all of the sets for that amount of time.  So, we thought, “We’ve got the scripts for season 3 ready.  We’ll come back to it in the following year,” and that was always the intention, and then the pandemic hit.  So, it was shut down immediately that we weren’t going to do anything, but we wanted to stay current, and instead of going back in and telling the third installment of After Forever as a Covid-19 story as well, Michael and I sat down and looked at a way of staying relevant and current with a story within COVID, and there was born the idea to do this documentary style story/special about the characters of After Forever told through the lens of the character of Riley, the 11-year-old boy, who is now being homeschooled during the pandemic. He gets an assignment to do a project about the most unforgettable person he has ever met, and he, of course, chooses his best friend, the late Jason Adams, and he enlists all of Jason’s friends and family to join in.  Michael actually said, “What if we tell a story about Riley being homeschooled?” And, not only is Riley a technical genius at 11-years-old in the story, but Finn Douglas, who plays Riley, is a technical genius.

And didn’t Finn perform and write the song “Forever There” contained within the special?

KEVIN. Yes. He is this incredible musician.  Michael thought, “What would it be like if we asked to have the character of Finn sing a song for Jason?”  I said, “Well, what kind of song would we have him sing?”  Finn could play anything, I’m sure, because he’s self-taught, he plays by ear – guitar, piano, and drums.  Michael said, “What if we ask him to see if he could write a song?” and when we heard this song, we all called each other and we all got on Zoom and went, “Can you believe this song?  Can you believe this came out of this 11-year-old?”  It’s pretty incredible.  Michael did a gorgeous job of weaving the stories in and out and how they just sort of dove-tailed into each other, and then it was framed by Riley opening the project and ending the project.  During the Zoom reading we wanted to hear the song out loud.  We said to Finn, “Would you want to sing the song?”  We all just watched everybody on that Zoom call just fall apart.  It was just so beautiful. He’s an amazing talent.

Where is your character within this?

KEVIN:  I still stand in the center of the story of Jason because my character, Brian, was married to Jason, and it sort of connects us all, and through Riley’s understanding of how we all connect to Jason, is how we are all sort of spread out throughout the story.  Michael jokingly said, “You know, you’re not going to be the star of this special,” and I said, “I don’t think it’s about being the star.  It’s really about the storytelling.”  The beauty of Riley’s Unforgettable School Project is that we get to see moments of each person’s relationship with Jason, which Riley sets out to say, “Answer these three questions: What did you like most about Jason?  What did you like least about Jason? And what’s your favorite memory?”  Those three things, cut back and forth is where we all kind of fit in.  Nobody has more of a story than the next person, and it’s all telling honest portrayals of how they’re dealing with their loss of their good friend, or their child, or partner.

It’s a very inventive idea during Covid-19 to continue it in a way where you weren’t having to go shoot a full season of episodes.

KEVIN:  Well, we couldn’t. I have to say, Allison Vanore, who not only produced this special, but she also stepped up saying, “I’d love to direct this,” and I said, “Yes, please!”  She knows the characters.  She understands the story because she’s been a part of it for the last two seasons.  Allison also has this extraordinary amount of knowledge and expertise with the camera and what was needed for a remote shoot, and to also be able to organize filming 13 people in 2 different countries and 5 different cities… that’s just the technical side of it, but having that in our back pocket, knowing that it was a remote shoot, we had to send the camera, the computer, the ring light, and the microphone to each person’s house.  We had to location scout over Zoom.  We had to do wardrobe over Zoom.  It was all this big puzzle putting it together, and once you look at that board of storytelling and how we were going to do it, it kind of fell into place.  I feel blessed that a) we still had Michael with us, at that point, and b) Allison had the know-how to do this.  We all feel that at least this pandemic didn’t keep us from doing what we love.

Photo: AfterForever

In terms of the contribution of Michael Slade in this special, was it the construction of the story, and how was he able to work and write this during his illness?

KEVIN:  Michael’s contribution to the special was no less than the contribution to season 1 and season 2, and the future of season 3, because the scripts are written.  We did everything on Zoom, and we worked around his schedule of treatment.  We scheduled 2 people per day, and we spread them out over two weeks.  He was very present, and when there would be a day where he would say, “I’m going to be an hour late, let’s just push that call time,” I would ask, “Is this too much right now?  We can shelve it; we can stop it.” He’d then say, “Absolutely not, otherwise cancer will win.”  He was determined to stay focused and to stay active because it took his mind off of what was happening to him.

Photo: AfterForever

It would be lovely moment if you both were to win a Daytime Emmy for this project. 

KEVIN:  It’s our last collaboration together as a team, as I said, season 3 has been scripted, and it is on the calendar to get made.  We are just waiting for the COVID restrictions to lift a little bit and everyone to get vaccinated.  Michael was really hit hard with cancer – to stay healthy was so challenging for him.  Sadly, he didn’t make it to see the final edit of the special, and he died four days before we launched, but he had seen the cuts before that and was very approving of it, and had made some decisions, and offered some suggestions, and if God gives him an Emmy for this, it’s not because he died.  It’s because it’s great work.  It just happens to be that the work that was involved in this particular special was very tricky.  It brought up everything, like life itself to have to deal with.  Here we are dealing with the loss of a colleague, the loss of a friend, someone’s brother, someone’s son, this is life imitating art, imitating art imitating life. I can’t tell you the darkness that I went through just experiencing the need to stay focused on getting everything edited, and everything ready, and everything aligned for a release of this project that we had put into motion.  On top of it, our editor lost his mother just before Michael passed, and Allison’s mom was sick at the time, as well.  It took a lot of heavy deep breaths with Michael’s death, and the pandemic, and the loss has, for me, on a personal level, sent me back to really questioning my spiritual muscle and to help remind me that we have to come out of this better than we went into this.  I had many dark nights of the soul this last year, and December was probably the darkest.  I feel like I’m just kind of coming out of it now with the spring revealing itself.

Photo: AfterForever

It must have been extraordinarily difficult for you to also go to New York during a pandemic and also knowing Michael did not have much time left.

KEVIN:  I will say this: I am grateful that I was able to stay in touch with my heart and my instinct and go out to New York to let that be my remote location.  Yes, maybe there was some risk involved.  I wore my mask; I was Covid-19 negative, and I was determined to be fine.  Once I got to New York, I would visit him very protectively with our masks and our gloves, and I’d sit across the room, and then I’d go back to the house I was at.  It was a gift that I was able to see him at that time.  We had some good talks then about how he was feeling, and I think he was still being optimistic, and then once we got the project in the can there was maybe this psychic letting go. That’s when everything really started to reveal itself as this could be the end.  I did go back to see him when he was in hospice.  I think I was there the last two days that he really was able to really stay coherent.  He would close his eyes and be at peace and quiet for a minute, and he would finish a conversation and sort of close his eyes, not to sleep and not to go away, but I remember watching him going, “Look how peaceful he is,” and then he’d open his eyes and he’d remember that he is in this body that has been given a time limit of life, and he’s on his way out.  I’d watch the fear go back in his eyes.  At one point, he did say, “I’m so scared,” and I just held his hand, and I said, “I’m scared too.  Let’s be scared through this together.”  I don’t know how to navigate grief like that.  We are all going to be in a position at some point where we are going to be on the other side of the hand holding.  The wonderful thing is that we were able to have honest communication about our feelings.  I thanked him for everything that he has done for me and how he believed in my talent and creativity and our partnership.  I will always take that with me.  I waved my finger at him, and I said, “Listen.  Now, we wrote a series about a man talking to his deceased husband.  You’d better talk to me!”  So, we laughed about that.

Photo: AfterForever

You’ve done a lot of things in your career from Broadway to television, and of course, daytime fans know you best as Dr. Craig Wesley on DAYS.  How does the entire After Forever project stack up to you within all that you have done?

KEVIN:  Former DAYS casting director Fran Bascom, sought me out and offered me this 2-day role on Days of Our Lives, and those 2 days turned into 8 years, and unbeknownst to me at the time, the final 3 months of that contract of those 8 years, Michael Slade was brought in to write.  We didn’t cross paths at that point, but years later, when we did cross paths in New York, and then After Forever was born, that was that universal crossing point.  I am most proud of the fact that we were able create something fresh, and real, and personal to ourselves that we didn’t have to cater to any “powers that be” that had their vision and their tinkering, that they thought that it could be better in this way or that way.  Then for After Forever to gain such recognition, within the film festivals, and the Emmys, and then, just after Michael died, we won the GLAAD award for Special Recognition this year.  We don’t even fit into one of their categories!  They found a way to acknowledge this project.  If another Emmy happens again, that might be another one to put up on the shelf for After Forever that would be beautiful, and I couldn’t have done it without Michael.

For the Daytime Emmys this year, what category have you entered Riley’s Unforgettable School Project?

KEVIN:  We are not a series this year, we are a daytime fiction special, and the “Daytime Fiction Special” category is a special class.  It’s anything that’s digital in the construct of less than 40 minutes.  NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) is being bombarded with so much content, they’re trying to find ways to put categories together.

Photo: JPI

So, now, when we last saw Days of Lives’ Dr. Craig Wesley, where was he? (Laughs)

KEVIN: (Laughs) He was in a flash from the past or something in the DOOL app’s Last Blast Reunion series. I had a fun time working with Patrika Darbo (Nancy) and Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe), once again.

So, if they were to want Craig to come back to DAYS, would you be all for it?

KEVIN:  Hell yes!

Photo: JPI

Now, what story would you want to be told involving Craig? 

KEVIN:  When Craig was first on the canvas in Salem, there was a lot of mustache twirling and a lot of hand wringing.  He was always plotting; most of the time with Nancy.  It was kind of this high drama, evil villain storyline being told, but when the writers created an opportunity for us to be on after those first three months by bringing on Chloe without a father, there was something real about it.  It may have been told under the construct of soap opera storytelling, but there was a reality-based story about, “You have a daughter, and we are just now finding out about it?”  Then, finding a cure to her health was another realistic story, and finding out that Craig was her real father.  Anything that’s reality based is what I’m getting to.  I would welcome any job that brings me back and gives me an opportunity to dive into something real.

Photo: JPI

Would you welcome the opportunity to play a gay character on daytime; in a medium where there are very few represented in storylines?

KEVIN:  I’d have no problem with that.  Do you know anybody who is starting that?  Let’s do it!  (Laughs) First of all, there’s nothing to hide anymore.  There’s nothing to pretend you’re not anymore.  I would think that bringing in a storyline that deals with anything outside the norm that we are used to seeing would be interesting.  How many times can you retell a story?  How many times can you set the same story up with another couple?  So, why not be diverse and have a stylized story being told through the lens of a gay person.

Photo: AfterForever

In closing, so many go through life without acknowledging people who had an impact them.  We don’t give pats on the back, often enough, and especially in Hollywood, where people can be very self-involved.  You have already paid tribute to Michael Slade in our discussion, but what gift from him is your personal takeaway?

KEVIN:  The gift that Michael really gave to me is to remember to be kind to myself and to others, and to acknowledge and salute the person who is in front of us, because we don’t know when we will have, or if we will have, another moment to do that.

Now below, check out the trailer for Riley’s Unforgettable School Project.  Then let us know, what do you think of its concept? Kevin’s thoughts on the passing of his collaborator on the project, Michael Slade? And, do you hope DAYS brings back Dr. Craig Wesley? Share your thoughts via the comment section.
