Daytime icon Deidre Hall (Marlena) celebrated her 40th anniversary on Days of our Lives yesterday on June 21, 2016, even though it has been noted she took some years off from the show. Hall had premiered on the NBC daytime drama series on that date back in 1976, as the beautiful and caring psychiatrist in Salem, Dr. Marlena Evans.

When viewers first saw Marlena on the canvas, she was the psychiatrist that treated Mickey Horton (John Clarke) in a sanitarium. As fans of Deidre’s and the character of Marlena know, the past forty years have provided many an adventure, mystery and romance for “doc”.

From the Salem Stalker, to Marlena’s possession, to exploring the ramifications for a mother following SIDS death, to her back-from-the-dead story, to her countless romantic entaglements with Roman and John, to being the understanding  grandmother who helped her grandson Will come to terms with his sexuality, Hall’s Marlena has often been the moral center and an everywoman centerpiece of the 51-year-old soap.

In celebration of her 40th milestone yesterday, Deidre took to her official facebook page to show the fun and humorous side of playing Marlena, when she called attention to a fantastic fan video made in 2014, entitled, “Marlena Evans Gives You Hell.”  This such a whimiscal, fun, and engaging look at the character that we wanted to repost it here.

I loved Marlena’s/Deidre’s “The Wizard of Oz” type scene in the church!

I always thought Dr. Marlena Evans was one of the best characters on daytime. Deidre Hall is beautiful and classy, and it is a downright shame that Daytime Emmys have never awarded her Best Actress for her outstanding performances.

Miss Evans is a class act. DAYS should always keep its focus on its legacy characters. They are the tent poles. This video was a delight to view and on such a special occasion. 40 years! Congratulations!

Days of our Lives fans love her as as Carrie Brady, and are often very happy when they find out Christie Clark is back for a visit taping episodes of the NBC soap opera.  But that’s not what’s happening right now.  Right now, we need Christie to get all her strength back.

Clark shared via her Instagram today a health update on her battle with the coronavirus that hit both her and her husband while they have been living in the United Kingdom.

Christie expressed: “Oh my goodness, just starting to feel ok on this end. My husband Tom and I have had coronavirus fairly bad. Not as bad as some, no hospital needed. Hope your all well! I’m sure at this stage you all know of someone with it? When you get it, you can’t call the grandparents for help, cause they will get sick. We know about 10 people in our little circle that have had it. Like clockwork, Day 7,8,&9 were tricky and haven’t been able to taste food for a while. So excited to be in the land of the living again & start exercising…soon. Thanks for all the love. Stay safe!”

Send your well-wishes to Christie and Tom as they are on currently getting stronger and recovering from the virus via the comment section below.

 NATAS chairman Terry O’Reilly said on the change” “Given our concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that we will not be staging the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena this coming June.  As there are so many unknowns right now with the flow of information changing on a daily, almost hourly, basis, it would simply be irresponsible to move forward with our annual celebration of excellence in daytime television at this time.”
