Gosh, I love this interview so much! It is so nice to see Drake talking a lot more, usually he sits back and lets Deidre do most of the talking while he flashes his beautiful smile to the camera. I love how modest he is and that we have been graced with his talents since 1986! The best choice DAYS ever made was having him play a recast Roman, which has now turned into more than we could’ve ever dreamed, he is the best of the best!

I and three of my friends flew from KY to be there for DOD. My friends went last year but this was two firsts for me, as I’ve never been to CA. DOD WAS AWESOME!!! I cried when Days theme song started. I and my friends have watched Days for 50 yrs. and so did our mothers, whom are all now deceased.
We got there at 7:00 am to get a front row seat. All of the actors and actresses were soo beautiful and friendly. We were disappointed though at the no shows.
Daniel, Jennifer, Bo, Hope, Victor, Stephano, Sami, Ej even though he supposedly died. We still had a wonderful, wonderful time!!
