DAYS Co-EP Greg Meng stated on the honor: “What better way to start the countdown to Days of Our Lives’ 50th anniversary on NBC than to be part of the iconic Hollywood Christmas Parade? We look forward to celebrating this holiday season with viewers across the country!”

Jim Romanovich, President of Worldwide Media for Associated Television International, added, “Days of Our Lives is an incredible success story and has been such an influential show to audiences over the years.

That’s nice. I wish that ALL MY CHILDREN could have made it to a 50th anniversary, though 42 years is nothing to sneeze at. I now watch DAYS OF OUR LIVES because I miss AMC and I need a soap fix. I’m a fairly new viewer, less than a year but DAYS is a good show. I do get tired of every character getting shot in that Fake leaf Park and I think they could use some new sets (does everyone have coffee in Brady’s Pub all the time?) but aside from that it’s a good show.

I found a friend in you, Troy. I enjoyed many soaps through the years but never DAYS… until I lost ATWT, AMC and OLTL. DAYS filled the void and though late to Salem, I am glad I can be there nearly every day to watch the goings on… although I still cannot keep everyone’s lineage straight! 🙂

I understand! I was thinking yesterday, when Kayla told Theresa in the Hospital that she and Brady “would have to wait an hour” for the pregnancy test result, she suggested that they “go to the Pub for Coffee”. Really? Doesn’t the Hospital like maybe have a Cafeteria where they could have had coffee? Everyone winds up in that Pub sooner or later, be it breakfast lunch or dinner. Honestly, the actors are quite competent but brother they need some diversification regarding Sets. Over at ABC-TV on All My Children, it seemed to me they had outdoor sets, location shots, and… Read more »

Now i’m going to have to convince someone to go with me because these people CAMP OUT just in hopes of being seen when all I want to do is see…but you know what…I have friends who rush to Emmy and Oscar red carpets where it’s just not worth the headache..but ok…I thinks me might do this one for once. The best thing about living in Los Angeles isn’t looking for your favorites…it’s just running into them ALL OVER the place…but this is something I do want to see…

Who is Christopher Sean (Paul)???

Christopher Sean plays the baseball player named Paul. Paul is Dr. Dan’s patient who is flirting with all the girls. He looks to be part Asian. He first was seen on Friday’s episode.

He’ll most likely turn out to be gay because the flirting is overkill to throw the viewers off.

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

Photo: JPI

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

Photo: JPI

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Photo: JPI

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
