age 20-35 … DAYS : Mary Beth Evans, the lovely Kayla would like some company

Enough of these Aussies, already. Hire an American. We have plenty of ruggedly handsome men right here, in this vast, beautiful country of ours. Think Texas, Montana, the Dakotas….etc. If Australians can speak with a ‘patched up’ American accent, so can an American affect an Australian one. I don’t get it…look in your own backyard, casting directors! Let’s go to Days, now…..Am I to believe that Paul is John’s son? I really like that concept…Finally, something meaty for John. He’s not my favorite soap actor, but, now, at least, I will not be as bored or annoyed by him. How… Read more »

Soaps are big in Australia. I wonder how many Americans are cast on their soaps?

If that is the case, Timmm, where there is an even balance?…..Then, I will eat my words and take everything I wrote back.

Of course Daniel is involved with this…may as well call it ‘Daniel Of Our Lives!’

Too many newbies…all i like is Paul and his mother…Eve, Paige, Serena, Daniel, Melanie, and Erik can all leave town. Why does this show need Roxanne(she is sort of ok) when it already has Bev…and why cant Paige be seeing Rory, the cool one, instead of TheNewKidOnTheBlock?

I don’t know how this is going to be possible, but the way Paul’s mother reacted to both Marlena and John– I bet my last donut, that John is going to be Paul’s father.

Perfect : ‘Daniel Of Our Lives!’

darned if you do and darned if you don’t : right?

How is it possible that one “anointed” person is ALL Salem Needs?

like CeeCee said above…. I’m glad as well.. that John Black gets story… and YES! it’s Paul Norita…
I was instantly taken with his mother

I also agree… that watching Eve jealous… surprised me… I’m still not undone by the story… if the writing improves… these two able actors are ready

What about Bren Foster? 🙂

I guess since B&B and Y&R both have Australians, Days wants to compete. 😉

I’m not necessarily excited. Just want the show to improve.

Compete for what, Mo? Who has more Australians? Seriously? We are swarmed by them……meanwhile, there are starving American actors who are struggling right here in the US of A.

I”m thinking they need some male hunk to keep Anne, Theresa, Melanie, and Serena company… add in Kayla

Australians seem to breed hunks, Patrick. Love the accent…nothing like the real thing…

CeeCee
Guest

Theresa is still so ” hung over” Brady, Patrick. So, yeah, a hunky doctor for her would sober her up in more ways than one. Anne is just too funny to have a guy come around and kill that in-your-face aura surrounding her. If she falls for some man, she will lose all that spunk I love so much and put all her energy toward impressing her love interest. Serena should take a train, plane or hike back to Llanview. Melanie has Brady, for the time being…hope he goes back to Theresa and both be united with the baby Kristen… Read more »

I wish they would search for a new Will. I wouldn’t mind if Will had an Aussie accent as long he could act.

Michael
Guest

Yes- I agree Tad- a new Will- one who can ACT woukd be a great improvement. Every single time Guy opens his mouth I cringe. And I really wish Sonny would stop acting like such a pussy. Man up and get angry, upset, etc.- but I’ve had enough of Sonny as ‘victim’.

Patrick

ditto

it just boggles the mind that the DAYS production team keep Guy Wilson and Shawn Christian .

they do not ACT

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Tell me about it, Patrick. I doubt TPTB will rid themselves of Shawn any time soon. He is one of the lead actors, if not the top male character. I also think that Daniel and Nicole really fit…perhaps because they are a couple in real life? I am waiting with bated breath to finally see “them” bring these two together, finally, without a hitch. I really feel they will be explosive because Nicole has that extra ingredient which helps her male counterpart shine. Let’s see what happens. Will? He has never worked for me. After all this time, he is… Read more »

He was up for a role on the series back in the early 2000’s, but it fell through.

Since Days is big in the land down under I suspect this is a way to get them involved with the 50th Anniversary of the show– it is a stunt, nothing more, and unless they luck out and find an amazing talent, this guy will last as long as Lexie’s half brother, who I have already forgotten this name- I want to say Cameron is that right? Let’s hope they write him a better story than being a male stripper to pay off medical school loans.

It does seem obvious John is Pauls father…wish he had been Abe’s instead…for John they shouldve brought back his daughter Belle!!!

How do we get Zachary Garred in the running? Loved seeing that Aussie on my screen. Granted it would mean having to start watching Days but if it means ZG onscreen, I’ll do it and I bet I wouldn’t be the only one.

Jeremy
Guest

Oh yes, I do miss Zachary as Levi on GH. And, I do think it’s very doubtful that DAYS will consider ZG. I think they are really pushing for an Aussie actor who hasn’t appeared on any other American soap.

I would love to see Bren Foster return to daytime!

Patrick

@Mo said the same thing above ! YES… even tho he’s been on DAYS before… they wasted him and never utilized his character
(May 2011 – February 22, 2012) he played Vivian Alamains son… Quinn

RETURN HIM as a new Character, or as Quinn….

my other pick would be Ben Lawson….

Nick D.
Guest

Bren was GREAT as Quinn – the most convincingly devlish bad-guy on Days in years. They made a mistake letting him go, imho. Hope they pick someone like that for this new role. The Aussies have charisma to spare (Bren, Ingo, Nathan parsons, etc.)

Side note – Australian … I wonder if he is connected to Tony/Andre? A long lost son?

It’s a bit ambitious, but it would certainly help Days ratings if they could land a Hemsworth – they’ve all done soaps before!

Even someone like Jonathon Wood, Wade Briggs, Matthew Le Nevez or Conrad Coleby sound like they’d fit the brief! Not sure whether the first two meet the ‘rugged’ criteria but they’ve all proved they’ve got the chops to handle it!

CeeCee

OMG. If one of those Hemsworth brothers would even appear temporarily, I would immediately stop picking on the Aussies. Is there a word that supersedes gorgeous, beautiful, perfection, flawless…..?????

@mar SF. You are right. I had already surmised John being Paul’s father on the previous site. It will be interesting to see the ‘how, when and where’,…..the plot thickens ?????

DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”

Robert Clary, DAYS, Y&R and ‘Hogan’s Heroes’ Favorite, Passes Away at 96

Very sad news to report.  Robert Clary, who became a soap opera fan favorite for his roles as Robert LeClair on Days of our Lives, and Pierre Roulland on The Young and the Restless has died at the age of 96.

Clary, best known to primetime fans for his role as  Cpl. Louis LeBeau, on the comedy series, Hogan Heroes, passed away on Wednesday according to his granddaughter, Kim Wright, who informed the Hollywood Reporter.  Robert was the last surviving member of the iconic cast.

Throughout his daytime career, Clary always sang in his roles and is most remembered as Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) best friend, Robert LeClair.  The two would always perform at “Doug’s Place” in story.  Clary played the role from 1972–1973, 1975–1983, and again from 1986–1987.

During a break from DAYS, Robert went over to Y&R and created the role of Pierre Roulland when the CBS daytime drama first premiered from 1973-1974, and once again sang and acted on the show.  Later in his career, Clary appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of Pierre Jourdan from 1990-1992.

On Clary’s passing, Y&R shared: “The #YR Family sends our condolences to the family and loved ones of Robert Clary known to the Y&R audiences as “Pierre” on our debut episode!” 

B&B also honored Robert by posting: The Bell Family & @BandB_CBS re sad to learn of the passing of #RobertClary, who portrayed Pierre Jourdan on @BandB_CBS from 1990-1992. Robert was a talented actor, a kind and courageous man, and a friend to all who knew him.”

Four decades into his career, Robert, who was Jewish, came forward with the fact that was incarcerated for 31 months in an Auschwitz concentrate camp, and tattooed with the identification “A-5714” on his left forearm. He was the only one of his captured family to make it out alive.

Clary was married for 32 years to the late Natalie Cantor, the second daughter of Eddie Cantor. She passed away in 1997.

Share your remembrances of the exceptional Robert Clary via the comment section below. But first, watch Robert talking about working with Bill Hayes on Days of our Lives, and his appearance in Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Lifetime Achievement Award package at the Daytime Emmys (produced by Michael Fairman).
