Michael, thank you for a wonderful interview. It is going to be such fun watching D&D work through their situation and hopefully end up in their special love story. I am excited beyond words that our efforts paid off and we have the fantastic actor Drake coming home. Just hoping the writers give D& D a great s/l

So am I excited beyond words. I don’t know what days long term plan was, but I definitely think we had a pretty big influence in this turn of events. That make me happy, now we just need a really wonderful storyline that brings them back to their roots. As characters their love is forever, as actors their friendship is the same.

It seems like forever till February when we get to see Drake on our TV screens once again,back in Salem,where he belongs. Hopefully,Drake will have a fantasically LONG storyline now! YEAH! Go Drake! Can’t wait!!!!

ROTFLMAO at Drake! OMG, he is a RIOT without trying! Drake just has that natural humor that comes out in everything he does and I LOVE it how he thanked the fans for getting him off the bench and how he NEVER loses contact with the camera. He is always smiling at it and engaging the audience! My ONLY criticism is when Deidre is talking there is NO reason for the camera man to cut Drake RIGHT out of the shot. I LOVE seeing his cute facial expressions regarding the topic being discussed. Deidre isn’t cut out of shots when… Read more »

I noticed that too and thought is was odd, distracting, just for the record. Enjoy the Drake & Michael action as Dee is trying to describe the USB thing, then loved Dee’s , Boys, Boys, Boys comment! Enjoyed the Yin/Yang ~ female/male thing going on too.

Exactly Lois, it made me sad because Drake has FABULOUS facial expressions and he is so funny without even trying to be, I wanted to see his reaction to what Deidre and Michael were saying. I watched the other interviews and none of the other actors were removed from the shot but Drake was removed twice. Like I said though, that isn’t Michael’s fault but hopefully next time the camera man will keep in mind that joint interviews means all three people stay in the shot.

What a great interview. Great cheers from South Africa.Thanks Michael! We adore J&M and you! Thank you for asking the questions from the fans perspective. Can’t wait to see our favorite couple on screen again. Thank god Drake is back. Hope they don’t drag out the story line too long before they reunite. Hope John pulls out some good tricks to win her back.

Excellent interview, Mr. Fairman. I’m thrilled Drake is coming back & I’m truly looking forward to seeing the J&M storyline in ’14 & beyond! Still hoping that they’ll do some in-character tweets – the fans are missing those like crazy!! XOXOXO to all!

Michael I love you with them BECAUSE you always get to the heart of things like no other interviewer. I think Deidre & Drake like your approach too .They seem to save their best stuff for you. I adore both of them not just in their roles as John & Marlena, but as Deidre & Drake too. I have never had the pleasure of meeting either one of them, but for me & many others they are the heart, the soul, the everything of the show. What a great interview.

CAN ANYONE HELP THE AUSTRALIAN FANS? In 2013, after many, many decades, Australian fans have been denied free-to-air viewing of “Days of Our Lives”. Later in 2013, episodes re-commenced via the internet, on Crackle.com – this involves expensive downloading which the average person cannot afford. What’s more, why should we have to sit up at a computer to view television shows which should be on free-to-air television. The elderly in nursing homes are not in a position to view Crackle. Whether it be the fault of Sony Australia and/or Channel 9, Sydney, it is quite criminal that they have done… Read more »

The two of you are adorable together on screen and off and that is what makes you so special. The John and Marlena fans formed a unity and worked hard to get our man Drake off the bench and back on screen. Hopefully, the writers saw how important John and Marlena are to the fans and they give us the most beautiful romantic love story in 2014. We love you Drake & Dee.

Thanks for the interview with Deidre and Drake! Made me smile 🙂 Can’t wait for John Black to be back on screen and for John and Marlena to work things out. They have always been the best couple in daytime and they have so much story left to tell. Looking forward to seeing them back on screen together!!

I’ve sure enjoyed seeing Marlena shine on her own lately. Deidre is hilarious! I fell in love with Days watching my mom watch Marlena long before John came into the picture, so this has been a treat. Hopefully they let her continue to shine outside of her relationship with John. Looking forward to John/Brady scenes and happy for John/Marlena fans with Drake’s return.

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
