Eric Martsolf and Suzanne Rogers Day of DAYS Video Interview: Thrady & Jen Lilley's Exit, Maggie & Brady A Duo?

Photo: MF Soaps Inc.

Days of our Lives Daytime Emmy winners, Eric Martsolf (Brady) and Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) chatted with On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman at last weekend’s Day of DAYS 2016.

During their conversation, the ever-popular performers spoke on a myriad of subjects ranging from: picking Eric’s Emmy reel for this upcoming competition, his final scenes with Jen Lilley who exits on air this week as Theresa, what will happen to Brady following her exit, and more.

Suzanne dishes on the fizzled Summer (Marie Wilson) storyline and Maggie having gotten pregnant on the farm as a teenager!

Michael suggests an upcoming story beat that has Maggie and Brady in their despair going on a bender together since they are both recovering alcoholics! Suzanne then suggests that Maggie might be the next woman for Brady in an older woman/younger man romantic entanglement!

When asked about Jen Lilley’s departure from the show, Eric expressed:  “Jen is a little ball of sunshine.  She loves soap opera and loves her job.  It’s going to be a loss for the show, because they invested in Thrady, and they have a kid together, but she exited so quickly.  It was hard to watch her leave.  I hate to way this, but I am getting kind of accustomed to watching my leading ladies leave in some dramatic, awful fashion.  Brady is pretty unlucky when it comes to love.” Suzanne  added: “I was hoping that Maggie was going to be the babysitter to help out Brady and Theresa, and now with Theresa leaving, I was thinking perhaps Maggie would be given the baby to help raise.”

Watch this candid and hilarious interview with Eric and Suzanne after the jump.  Then let us know what was your favorite moment from it in the comment section below!

Days should have recast the character of Theresa and not had us and Brady go through this bad exit storyline.

Shane can’t do anything with this Fidel guy or whatever his name is. And neither can Victor? Come on!

Instead of coming of with this ridiculous nonsense of why Theresa “has to leave” in typical idiotic soap opera Mildred Pearce self-sacrificing done to death fashion – (how’s THAT for a run-on sentence?) – why couldn’t they simply re-cast Theresa? Just have her go off for a while to take care of a sick Aunt and then re-emerge as played by another actress.

Because Jen Lilley deserved a dramatic exit. ..boyfriend out the blue and all. .at least there won’t be an elephant re entry story for the next actress. Its built in. I’m really liking Days an awful lot right now except for Rafe.. unfortunately after ALL his years on soap. .Galen Gehring STILL can’t act. I want all but Gabi gone from that family or a decisive recast. Ciara need to do a bye Felicia too.

I agree with your notes about Gabi, she does nothing for me, or rather, there is zero chemistry between her and JJ – yet he had excellent chemistry with the actress who played Paige. I know, I understand we can’t all love every storyline and it IS a soap so exaggeration(s) are expected and built in. What I can’t quite grasp is what the heck kind of role is Blanca? What purpose does she serve? It’s difficult to care about a character that isn’t developed and it almost seems like she’s “thrown” at you without any legit reason. She’s PRETTY… Read more »

I absolutely hate the way Theresa was written off the show. The idea that Matteo, a man Theresa was involved with when she was only 19, should show up demanding she return to Mexico with him is unbelievable. Why after all these years would Matteo decide he wants Theresa back. A man who loves a woman does not force her to abandon her son. Why couldn’t the writers have had Theresa go into hiding?

i’m about a week behind… agree… this exit is really lame… and not what I would have thought… Ryan Quan… and Dena would come up with… seriously… it’s lazy… for a character, the audience does like… yet they had to come up with a quick exit “plan”. so.. the only connect I came up with… is Theresa being told by HER father… ( the reason for all of Jeanne Theresa character flaws, along with mother, Kimberly ) Shane telling her he left his family for his work… and that Shane and Kimberly hope that Theresa ??? takes one for the… Read more »

it’s not the best ending… considering… Theresa , herself, knows she has, “everything”, she’s ever wanted…. LOVE, being loved, a man who loves her… sharing a child. it’s emotional to see one of my fave characters no longer reeling. so… she – what ???? goes undercover… for her father… and is seeing eye to eye with… at least, her parents.. despite the heartache I JUST LOVE Patsy Pease… so much ! there is an article in the latest SOD issue… how much Jenn Lilly LOVES Patsy Pease… and it’s a really nice endearment… in how much Jenn sees Patsy, in… Read more »

Love Suzanne and Eric. It is fun to see the real people rather than the characters. I got the impression that Maggie (Suzanne) doesn’t have much of a storyline coming up. That is a shame – such a talented actress. Thanks for a fun interview.

Theresa’s exit storyline is bad but I’m glad she wasn’t killed off. I’ll always think of her great days on the show, when she and Anne were bad and going after Jennifer and Daniel at the hospital.

Eric Martsolf is such a hunk. I hope he gets a new and worthy love interest soon.

Hate the way that Theresa is leaving the show. I can’t believe that she is leaving her baby and husband for a selfish, pompous, abusive man that she knew when she was a teenager. This is one of the worst storylines that this show has ever produced. Boo to the new writers’

I agree. All of those Spies and ex-Spies could not help her or are they using her to snag this so called dangerous man?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
