Wow! This week, we all need to give a major round of applause to Days of our Lives enduring star, Suzanne Rogers (Maggie Simmons Horton Kiriakis).

Back on July 13th, 1973, Suzanne was cast as Maggie Simmons as part of the Mickey Horton (John Clarke) amnesia storyline. Eventually it would be in August of that year, that she would make her screen debut due to the Watergate scandal and TV preemptions.

In 1979, Suzanne became the very first Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner for her work in Maggie’s alcoholism storyline and in 1984, Rogers was diagnosed with the neuromuscular disorder, Myasthenia Gravis, and at one point she had to leave the series for a year.  It was later written in to Maggie’s story.

Suzanne has been the on-screen wife of another legend, John Aniston (Victor Kiriakis) until his death.  Another DAYS icon, Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie Williams) shared a photo of her and Rogers celebrating their July birthdays together, something they have done for 50 years. In addition, Susan acknowledged Suzanne’s big milestone!

Hayes shared: “Suzanne and I have celebrated our July birthdays together for 50 years! And this week Suzanne becomes a golden girl of Salem! 1000s of episodes to remember, 50 years on air, tears and triumphs! Congrats to her… and to me, too!”

Ten years ago, when Suzanne was being honored on set for her 40th anniversary with DAYS, Michael Fairman punk’d her.  He went into her dressing room at Burbank Studios where DAYS is taped, and sat down with her to discuss the big 4-0.  Little did Suzanne know it was ruse so the show could set up a celebration for her on the set.  You can watch the interview and how Rogers was surprised below.

Now, share your congrats to Suzanne Rogers for her 50 years as DAYS Maggie via the comment section below.

Adam Caine Reprises His Role of Edmund Crumb on Days of our Lives

Here’s a welcome blast from the past! Coming up on Days of our Lives, look for the return of Adam Caine who reprises his role as Susan Banks’ beloved former boyfriend and husband, Edmund Crumb.

It has been 25 years since Adam played the role of Edmund, as he was only on the long-running soap opera for four memorable months.

Now, according to the latest Soap Opera Digest, Caine returns at the beginning of October in scenes with Tamara Braun (Ava) and Steve Burton (Harris).  With Ava trying to remember what happened the night Susan (Stacy Haiduk) ‘died’ and her part in it, plus the two being in the run, it shall be interesting just how they try to locate or bump into Mr. Crumb!

Previously, DAYS viewers first saw Caine play the whimsical Edmund Crumb alongside Eileen Davidson’s original version of Susan. Together, they created some of the more hilarious romance segments ever on a soap opera. Eventually, Edmund and Susan married in April of 1998.  The couple moved back to Edmund’s home country of England to live and that is the last we have seen of him, that is until now!

So, what do you think will happen when Edmund reappears on Days of our Lives? Will he be reunited with Susan Banks, now played by Stacy Haiduk? Comment below.

Jen Lilley Signs Off at Days of our Lives: “Playing Jeanne Theresa Donovan Off and On for the last 10 Years Has Taught Me So Much About Empathy and Grace”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jen Lilley will wrap her short-term run as Theresa Donovan. Lilley came back to reprise her role to a be a part of the on-screen memorial for Victor Kiriakis, and to honor one of her her all-time favorite scene partners, the late John Aniston.

While Lilley explained in interviews with the press, that she gave the series a 3 to 4 week window of time she would be available to reprise the role, she noted the long-running soap opera wrote more episodes and story for the character; thus the part will be turned over to another actress for the next leg of Theresa’s return story.

Meanwhile, through the years, Lilley came under fire over her run on DAYS being a devout Christian, and taking on the role of the troublemaking Theresa.  She fired back in one interview, “Why should I play a role like this,’ you know? That’s been something I’ve been asked over and over again, by Christians, like,‘How can you be a Christian and play this role?’ And the truth of the matter is that from a human perspective, Theresa’s kind of a horrible person, but from a God perspective, she’s exactly who Christ came and died for.”

With her final episode streaming on Peacock on Friday, September 22nd, Lilley took to her Instagram to share her sentiments on her Salem journey over the years.

Jen shared: “Last week of me exploring this girl’s shenanigans on screen. Playing Jeanne Theresa Donovan off and on for the last 10 years has taught me so much about empathy and grace. I have enjoyed every moment of her hilarious sass and ferocity, layered with brokenness. To the cast and crew at @dayspeacock, I love you forever. You’re my family. And to the best fans a girl could ask or hope for: remember there is no pit so deep you could ever find yourself in where God’s love cannot find you still. You are never beyond redemption. You are called by grace and marked with love. Thank you for supporting me on this decade long journey. #Days #RIPJohnAniston #ripvictorkiriakis #DOOL”

No word yet if in the future, and with Lilley’s busy filming schedule (once the SAG-AFTRA and writers strikes are resolved) for Great American Family movies and other projects, if she would be available to return to DAYS should the show decide to write for the character.

So, are you sad to see Jen exit the canvas as Theresa? Curious just who and how will take over her role? There have been plenty of online rumors that a certain actress currently on the show is taking over the part. Comment below.
