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?

Oh my!! The thought of Brady and Maggie going on a one-time bender……like the Stoned Cougars Book Club Episode!!! I love those episodes!!! And Mr. Michael Fairman….why cant the 4 remaining soaps be as entertaining as this was????

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Photo: JPI

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
