Too many favorite moments to choose from, but one I just re-watched recently that stuck with me is her therapy session with “Dr. Tony Stone” (circa early ’80’s) when she role-played and talked to her mom and Samantha. Love everything she does, though. Great lady, and very deserving of the recognition!

Yes Marlena returning on the pier and the whole possession story!

Too many to list, an early scene that stands out is when Marlena found out that Samantha was dead. Another is when John told her all of the horrible things that she had done during the Possession story. Very classy lady, very deserving of this honor..Love her!

There are too many favorite moments to pick from. I think the ones that stand out most to me are: the one where Marlena lost her son, DJ to SIDS (early 80’s) and the storyline where Marlena was possessed by the devil.

Too many for me to choose just one. Marlena realizing that ‘John’ was really ‘Roman’ at the top of the hill and their hug. DJ crib scene is heartbreaking. ‘The Plane’…especially the moment she realizes she can’t leave. Belle’s birth ‘he’s a girl?’ loved those moments between Marlena and John. Their first wedding in 1986 (well basically all of 1986) and also their wedding in 1999. When John tells Marlena what she has done, during possession while she is in the hospital. The scenes in ‘The Pit’ with John and their scenes on Jennifer’s show afterwards. Some of the scenes… Read more »

There are so many but I would have to say the 1991 Pier Scene or when she woke up to John in Aremid.

Marlena’s return scene on the pier with John, and the possession storyline. Also the affair on the plane.

Too hard to choose just one, which speaks to what an incredible actress Deidre is. The scenes that stand out for me are when John tells Marlena that she was The Desecrator during The Possession storyline and when Marlena returns home alone after John’s funeral.

It is so difficult to choose a favorite because Marlena has had such great moments through the years. She has always been my favorite since the day Deidre brought the character to Salem all those years ago. She has never disappointed in any of her storylines. But I think I will select the 1991 pier reunion with John as my favorite. The emotions were so real and what made it extra special was knowing Deidre was back on the show once again. And seeing her in Drake’s arms once again was icing on the cake. What a great couple. I… Read more »

So hard to choose since I’ve watched them all, but I guess I’ll say Da Plane. (real fans will know)

The Salem Strangler storyline, the pier with John and all of her scenes with Wayne Northrup.

My favorite Marlena episode was in September 2011 when Marlena and John returned to Salem during the dedication of Horton Square. Deidre, as Marlena, did not have to say one word. Her graceful entrance with Drake (as John Black) and the smile on her face said it all!

Marlena -Act 1—–1976-1982 Any scene.

LOVED Deidre’s early years.. The chemistry she had with Jed Allan was never to be duplicated. IMO- not even with “Roman or John”

So many wonderful “Marlena” moments & scenes over the decades. Can’t believe I’ve been watching Ms Hall as Marlena since the late 1970s. Wow. So happy that she returned to DOOL last year which prompted me to tune back in to the show. Hope she is around for another 4000 episodes.

Loved the early days when she was first introduced to Salem as Mickey Horton’s therapist when he was institutionalized. Then when her sister Samantha came on the scene, jealous of “Doc” and switched identities with her, leaving Marlena in the same institution as Mickey. Samantha became a poor imitation of Dr. Evans, while Marlena spent months in the looney bin as Samantha. As I recall, Don Craig finally figured it out. Another was when patient Stella lured Doc to a warehouse where she had prepared a pit. Unsuspecting Marlena tip-toed into the darkened warehouse looking for Stella, and then fell… Read more »

DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”

Robert Clary, DAYS, Y&R and ‘Hogan’s Heroes’ Favorite, Passes Away at 96

Very sad news to report.  Robert Clary, who became a soap opera fan favorite for his roles as Robert LeClair on Days of our Lives, and Pierre Roulland on The Young and the Restless has died at the age of 96.

Clary, best known to primetime fans for his role as  Cpl. Louis LeBeau, on the comedy series, Hogan Heroes, passed away on Wednesday according to his granddaughter, Kim Wright, who informed the Hollywood Reporter.  Robert was the last surviving member of the iconic cast.

Throughout his daytime career, Clary always sang in his roles and is most remembered as Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) best friend, Robert LeClair.  The two would always perform at “Doug’s Place” in story.  Clary played the role from 1972–1973, 1975–1983, and again from 1986–1987.

During a break from DAYS, Robert went over to Y&R and created the role of Pierre Roulland when the CBS daytime drama first premiered from 1973-1974, and once again sang and acted on the show.  Later in his career, Clary appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of Pierre Jourdan from 1990-1992.

On Clary’s passing, Y&R shared: “The #YR Family sends our condolences to the family and loved ones of Robert Clary known to the Y&R audiences as “Pierre” on our debut episode!” 

B&B also honored Robert by posting: The Bell Family & @BandB_CBS re sad to learn of the passing of #RobertClary, who portrayed Pierre Jourdan on @BandB_CBS from 1990-1992. Robert was a talented actor, a kind and courageous man, and a friend to all who knew him.”

Four decades into his career, Robert, who was Jewish, came forward with the fact that was incarcerated for 31 months in an Auschwitz concentrate camp, and tattooed with the identification “A-5714” on his left forearm. He was the only one of his captured family to make it out alive.

Clary was married for 32 years to the late Natalie Cantor, the second daughter of Eddie Cantor. She passed away in 1997.
