Days of our Lives is set to be honored at this year’s Hollywood Christmas Parade taking place on Sunday, November 30th!

As the soap kicks off its 50th year next year, current cast members will be on hand to participate in a special presentation to commemorate its enduring run on NBC.

Scheduled to take part in all the Tinseltown festivities are: Deidre Hall (Marlena), Kristian Alfonso (Hope), Suzanne Rogers (Maggie), Galen Gering (Rafe), Lauren Koslow (Kate), Peggy McCay (Caroline), Joseph Mascolo (Stefano), Greg Vaughan (Eric), Bill Hayes (Doug), Susan Seaforth-Hayes (Julie), John Aniston (Victor), Shawn Christian (Daniel), Arianne Zucker (Nicole), Eric Martsolf (Brady), Kate Mansi (Abigail), Guy Wilson (Will), True O’Brien (Paige), Drake Hogestyn (John), Jen Lilley (Theresa), Mary Beth Evans (Kayla), Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), Casey Moss (JJ), Billy Flynn (Chad), Molly Burnett (Melanie), Meredith Scott Lynn (Anne), Aloma Wright (Maxine) and Christopher Sean (Paul).

Plans call for the DAYS to make their way down the parade route in an eye-catching presentation, featuring the show’s new 50th anniversary logo! There, the Salemites will then be greeted by parade hosts, Laura McKenzie and Erik Estrada, and presented a special honor to acknowledge their success!

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.

Awesome. Wish I could be there. I’ll try to catch on TV, but the airings aren’t real convenient.

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 many other sets. Of course, I suppose production budgets were larger in the glory days of soaps. At any rate Thank you Iakovos I feel I have a kindred spirit here LoL – enjoy your time in Salem.

I agree with Greg Meng, “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?…” Congratulations, Days. I always look forward to the Hollywood Christmas Parade and Days participation in it. This year’s parade will be extra special. Wish all in Salem a wonderful 50th year and MUCH FUN at the parade!

By the way, thank-you Michael for providing this information about Days’ special honor at the Hollywood Christmas Parade. I made an inquiry (earlier today I think) about Days’ participation in this year’s festivities. So this article was right on time for me.

I really do appreciate how you keep fans informed about what is going on with our favorite soaps. Thanks for your diligent hard work!

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)???

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

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.

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.

Now below, let us know if you saw the first episode of Kate;s directing journey on the DOOL app and what you thought of it? Look for new episodes to be posted every Thursday for the next three weeks.

Chandler Massey Talks More On The DAYS WilSon Departure On The Freddie & Alyssa Show

As promised by Freddie Smith (Sonny, DAYS) earlier in the week, his on-screen co-star,  Chandler Massey (Will)  was the special guest on the Freddie & Alyssa Show.  The podcast spend most of the episode giving Chandler and Freddie’s perspective of what happened and how they found out how they were being written-off Days of our Lives as beloved couple, WilSon.

While Freddie and Chandler do not in any way reveal what happens in the final six episodes they taped, or what was contained in the scripts, Chandler expressed  that it wasn’t until they received the six and final script of their promised six episodes, when the show resumed production after its long hiatus, that they realized what was happening.

It’s a Wrap For DAYS Galen Gering As He Shares Special Message To Fans: “I Hope You Know How Thankful I Am To Have Had You At My Side”

Today is a bittersweet day for longtime daytime favorite, Galen Gering.  While on Wednesday; he is celebrating his birthday! (Happy birthday, Galen!), he is also finishing up his last day at Days of our Lives as Rafe Hernandez; a role he has played for the last ten years-plus.

In a heartfelt posting on his Instagram, Galen shared special thanks to all of his fans who watched his during his run in Salem.

Gering expressed: “Thank you all so much for the incredible birthday wishes. I’ve always seen birthdays as a day of reflection, an opportunity to look back at where I’ve been and where I’m going. So, it’s oddly befitting that today also happens to be my last day at Days. Man…I have such great memories from the last 10 years. Onscreen I’ve fought for marriages and fought evil twins. I’ve put people in prison and been imprisoned. And offscreen, I’ve made friendships that I will have for a lifetime. All the while, I’ve been so fortunate to have the love and support of the greatest fans in the world. I hope you know how thankful I am to have had you at my side. With that said, the journey continues and I hope to bring you along for the ride. Thanks for the memories Days of our Lives. Like sands through the hourglass… Love Y’all”
