Want to see Mary Beth Evans (Kayla) and Stephen Nichols in their first in-depth chit chat since Stephen returned to DAYS filming new episodes as Steven “Patch” Johnson? Well, look no further than Mary Beth’s latest video blog on her website plankblog.com!

To honor their 29-year friendship together, Mary Beth chats with Stephen in his dressing room at DAYS.  In this informal setting, Mary Beth asks some of the fans questions, discusses what it has been like for the dynamic duo to be working at DAYS together after so many years, and in time for the 50th anniversary of the long running NBC soap opera, and more.

Evans posted: “This week is the 27th anniversary of the wedding of Steve & Kayla, and in thinking of that, I can’t help but think of the amazing gift these characters gave me a 29-year friendship with Stephen Nichols. Over the course those 29 years, we have laughed, cried and loved each other. And to have the opportunity to work together again, after years apart, is something for which I am so grateful.  In honor of “our 27th wedding anniversary,” I wanted to share a short conversation between the two us us. Thanks for your help with the questions we’ll do this again soon!”

Watch Mary Beth and Stephen here and then let us know what you thought of their chit-chat, and if you are looking forward to their upcoming new storyline?

How cool that these two actors have such a genuine relationship and friendship. It really comes across in the video. Lovely to hear memories about past Days alumni who are no longer with us and wonderful how thrilled they are in the current direction of the show. Something really exciting to look forward to.

I love these two, the affection they share and have shared with each other for so many years makes them and their onscreen pairing so special. So excited to have Stephen back on Days and to see him and Mary Beth front burner again where they belong. The six months in advance shooting schedule is a bummer in keeping us waiting until there scenes start airing but Mary Beth is a doll in sharing the bts things, it’s much appreciated.

Michael, thank you so much for covering plankblog and their interview of each other. I agree with Liz, they ARE so good to their fans and, yes, completely classy. It was a really long discussion, not just a few minutes, and I was enthralled with the fact that the questions they answered were not the standard stuff folks have heard before. I was riveted by their discussion of Rick Biggs and Joy Garrett. Even more than what they said, it was their non-verbals that struck me. They adored Rick, you can tell just in their expressions. I’d conversed with Rick… Read more »

I’m so glad they’ve always played Steve & Kayla, couldn’t & wouldn’t watch if Mary Beth & Stephen weren’t S&K

I love these two, on-screen and off. My favorite soap couple of all time. They have a genuine love for each other that shines through. Such a breath of fresh air, especially coming right after the nastiness of Tony Geary’s comments about Luke&Laura. Most soap fans are women, and we want romance. Patch&Kayla AND Marybeth&Stephen make us believe in true love, til death do us part.

Absolutely loved Plankblog with MaryBeth & Stephen. They’re so busy & to take the time to do this for their fans is so nice. Seeing them just be themselves… It shows how much they love & respect each other. It’s a genuine friendship. They make Sreve & Kayla what they are…the best & most romantic couple on daytime. Looking forward to seeing Stephen back & seeing now what’s in Steve and Kayla’s future.

This vlog is just another example of how genuine, creative and giving professionals they are. You can see how their offscreen chemistry just bleeds onto their onscreen relationship which makes us love them for the last 30 yrs. How sweet & giving they are that they answered our questions, took the time to do this and even gets “excited” about the history of Steve and Kayla like us fans : ) Mary Beth & Stephen Rock! Period!

Wonderful vlog! Thank you SN and MB for doing it for your fans!

I have thoroughly enjoyed both actors in their various roles in daytime as they are tremendously gifted in their craft and always deliver stellar performances, but sentimentally Steve and Kayla have always held a special place in my heart. I look forward to seeing SN and MB shine together once again on Days of our Lives!

Always loved these two and their characters on Days. Was really ticked at the treatment by the producers of Days who insulted all by trashing loved characters to recreate his world from Passions.

Corday needs to insure that he never allows that to happen again.

This is what friendship and chemistry is all about. I have loved these two actors and characters since they first appeared together always rooting for them. Its unbelievable how they always think of their fans and I have read Mary Beth’s blog since day one so many inspirational and interesting posts – she is always giving to her fans even though she must be so busy with all her work. Looking forward to seeing them both together on screen again. Thank you Mary Beth and Stephen for this vlog.

Yes! Stephen Nichols, MaryBeth Evans, Thaao Penghlis, Peter Reckell; what could be better? Now if only Days didn’t make us wait until September to see them all again. Why does Days take so long to air episodes.? The actor who portrayed Xander had already left Days before any of his episodes even aired.

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 . #❤️ #😘”
