EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Suzanne Rogers Being "Punk'd" By Us On Her 40th Anniversary With DAYS!

As we previously reported, this past Tuesday marked Daytime Emmy winner, Suzanne Rogers 40th year on Days of our Lives as the beloved Maggie Horton!  What Suzanne did not know was that she was being set-up for a big surprise from the cast and crew and her mom on the set of the Horton Town Square at the NBC sounstage!

While the cast and crew and press were gathering, On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman was enlisted by DAYS to help keep Suzanne occupied while they rolled in the cake, and got all the attendees in place!  So what better way and least suspecting way to do that?  Tell Suzanne that Michael was here to interview her for her 40th anniversary, and to meet him in her dressing room.

Without Suzanne knowing this was a delay tactic, Fairman conducted a true 40th anniversary interview with Rogers all about many of the key points in her illustrious career with DAYS including: Maggie with the red shoes, the three Johns in on-screen love life (John Clarke, John Ingle, John Aniston), when the show “killed-off” Maggie in that huge publicity ploy, her winning the very first Outstanding Supporting Actress Award at the Daytime Emmys, and so much more.

But while she was answering the questions, we had a flip cam and iPhone filming the whole thing, and what was to follow!  Thus, the reason for thebootleg-esque footage quality! Next,we waited for the signal from the overhead public address system telling everyone to get to the stage!  If you watch the video, you can see it was all part of our plan.   What happens next is you will see Suzanne’s immediate surprise as we show you how she met all of her castmates, crew members, and the press.    Following that, Michael caught up with her to get her thoughts on the surprise and to wrap up the 40th anniversary interview!

Watch the interview/surprise/”punkfest” after the jump and let us know what you thought of it?  What has been your favorite story for Maggie over the years?  Share your thoughts!

How very lovely. Suzanne Rogers is the heart of DAYS now that Frances is gone. I have met her in person on two occasions. It was a blessing. Szanne is so gracious, beautiful and grounded. My grandmother watched DAYS from its first day. Maggie was her favorite character. She loved the Red Shoes story the most of all storylines. Three generations later and we all still love Maggie> So pleased DAYS planned a celebration in her honor.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Recalls The Terror He Caused In The Cabin!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

On Wednesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has brought Ciara (Victoria Konefal) to a very familiar place to him, the old abandoned cabin in the woods where he had: tied up Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail, where he had traumatized Abigail, and where she had given birth to Thomas, and where he murdered the midwife, Wendy (Denice Duff).  Throughout the episode, Ben flashes back to all those moments in time, and the heinous acts he perpetrated.

For this episode, DAYS re-created these key scenes in Ben and Abigail’s back-story, by having Marci Miller redo the scenes, originally played at the time by Kate Mansi.  Both Wilson and Miller were riveting to watch.

In present time, as Ben tends to Ciara’s wounds, he looks around the cabin and flashes to kidnapping Abigail.  When Ciara finally starts regaining consciousness and starts to moan, it brings back memories of Wendy aiding Abigail in the birth of her son, Thomas.  He recalls murdering Wendy and burying her.  Ben begins to relive more and more moments, and then the horrific time he wanted to set Chad and Abby on fire.  Ben continues to get more beside himself, and begins to pant recalling it all.

Later, Ben is standing in a corner, staring at the flame of the lighter that had been used to start the fire that had nearly killed Chabby. Just then, Ciara wakes up and takes a look at Ben. and she screams,”Oh my God.”

What did you think of the performance of Rob Scott Wilson? What did you think about Marci Miller redoing the scenes originally that aired that were played by Kate Mani? Comment below.
