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.

So, check out the video containing memorable Marlena moments after the jump, and then share your thoughts on 40 years of Deidre on DAYS in the comment section below!

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: What Did You Think of the Life-Sized Duke and Ava Scene?

Okurrrr! On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the long-running NBC soap opera served up a scene in which Ava (Tamara Braun) wakes up in bed and sees a life-sized Duke doll come to life in the doorway.

If you recall, Ava ripped the small-sized stuffed-animal, Duke to shreds, previously, with a scissor in a fit of rage as she appears to be losing her grip!

In this scene, Duke returns with pair of scissors in his hand and says he’s there for payback. Ava screams out. Next, she grabs a nail file to defend herself and tries to run, but Duke grabs her.

What does Ava do next? She bites Duke. He tells her that she’ll pay for that.  Next, we see a startled Ava in bed as Rafe (Galen Gering) appears at the doorway with coffee… and wait for it … a bear claw!

As Rafe informs Ava of the accusations against him at work, she asks if he thinks she is engineering this, considering he accused her of dismembering Duke?  Rafe says he believes she is not responsible for any of this. Oh, Rafe!

So, what did you think of the scene when you watched it between larger-than-life stuffed-animal-come-to-life Duke and Ava?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
