DAYS Suzanne Rogers talks about Maggie's beginnings!

Suzanne RogersSuzanne Rogers, the enduring Maggie Horton of Days of our Lives talked with We Love Soaps about Maggie’s humble beginings on the series, when she was crippled and could not walk and the famous red shoes, in the Mickey/Marty amensia storyline that brought her to Salem where she remains a staple of the series.  This is part one of the interview, part two from the website will be coming soon.  An excerpt is below!

We Love Soaps: After three years, how did the decision get made to allow Maggie to walk without them?
Suzanne Rogers: They wanted to bring Mickey back to town, and they felt there was a strong storyline between Bill [Horton] and Mickey. He was beginning to remember. There were pictures taken at the County Fair. Tom Horton and Bill had seen this picture and Tom is the one who said, “That looks like my son.” That’s how it started. Eventually Tom, Bill, and Laura [Horton, played by Susan Flannery], came out to Brookville to see who this man was. And by then, this man had married me. Mickey had always said, “You need to get yourself checked and see if there’s anything we can do about your legs.” So when I went into town, I went to this main hospital. They told me to sit in this one office and on the desk was a picture of this woman and this man…and the man was my husband! But I didn’t know he wasn’t Marty [and really] was Mickey. [Laura] was still legally married to him. Then Bill ended up operating on me, and I started in physical therapy. Bill kept saying, “There’s nothing wrong with her.” Of course Mickey is saying, “Then why can’t she walk?” I didn’t walk because I thought if he didn’t have me to take care of then he would go back to Laura. Here’s this famous woman doctor, and I’m a nothing on a farm. I thought I was going to lose him. It was psychological thing as to why I couldn’t walk. [Mickey] gave me a pair of red shoes, and this was the famous scene. He said, “You walk, and I’ll take you out dancing.” This was his way of telling me it was going to be okay. But I was still afraid of Laura. It all the hit the fan when Mike came to the farm to see Mickey. Mike, his son, came to the farm, and got hurt working on a tractor. When they went to do a blood transfusion, he didn’t match. And that’s how it all came out that Mike was not his son.
