For the first time since her shocking departure from DAYS at this same time last year, Deidre Hall speaks!  The Days of our Lives legend, who played soaps most beloved heroine, Dr. Marlena Evans has  been named by TV Guide Canada, Entertainer of the Decade for her performances.  Nelson Branco (TVG) caught up with our favorite “doc” for a captivating interview to discuss all things: her firing, James Reilly, Drake Hogestyn and Wayne Northrup, family life, future projects, and the state of soaps.   Here are a few great excerpts!

Deidre on if she was asked to take paycut before DAYS dismissed her: “You should know that I have taken many pay cuts, too, in the past. But I wasn’t even asked if I could take a pay cut before I was dismissed because I would have. Over the years, I had always said to Ken Corday, “This is my home. And this is my family. If you’re in trouble, and need some salary relief, knock on my door because I am a team player. I’m your girl.” There is no question that the show was in trouble and extremely over budget because of years and years of overspending.”

Deidre on Marlena murdering Salem icon, Alice Horton with a donut: “Yes, I did! For me, that was probably the worst day on DAYS! When they told me Marlena was going to kill Alice, I was simply dumbstruck. I was simply undone the day we filmed that scene. When we taped the scene, I took a deep breath and just acted it out. Before that, I was sobbing in my dressing room because Frances is my hero. What a lead to have on a show. If you are acting in a scene with Frances, you better know your stuff — or else! Frances is a living legend. She was everything you look up to — she’s a feminist, an inspiring and talented actor, hilarious and a wonderful, loving human being.”

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.
