On the all-new episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, it’s our Daytime Emmy Pre-Party as podcast host, Michael Fairman chats it up with last year’s winner for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, Greg Vaughan (Eric), and later sits down with four of this years DAYS nominees: Kassie DePaiva (Eve), Eric Martsolf (Brady), Victoria Konefal (Ciara) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).  As viewers know, the soap received 27 nominations this year, the most of any show in the competition, and the most nominations ever for Days of our Lives!

During Greg’s segment, he discusses the exciting return of Arianne Zucker (Nicole), and what it means with Nicole back in Eric’s life.  In addition, working with Linsey Godfrey and creating a new love life for his character.  DAYS fans  have always seen Eric very tormented in his storylines and Greg weighs-in on if he likes playing those beats in his story arcs.  Vaughan also offers his advice for this year’s nominees at the upcoming 46th annual Daytime Emmys on how to prepare as your waiting for your name to be called when they rip open the envelope on-stage.   Later, Michael and Greg banter about two can’t-miss clios for the past two weeks of stories on Days.

At the podcast’s pre-Daytime Emmy party, Kassie, Eric, Victoria and Linsey dish about how they found out they were nominated, and discuss why they chose some of the scenes that they submitted which we dive into during their segment, plus how to try to create the perfect Emmy reel for the competition.   Eric is a former Emmy winner, and Kassie and Linsey have been nominated previously, but this is the first time for fan favorite, Victoria Konefal, but will they have acceptance speeches prepped if they win the gold?  The foursome reveals how they plan to get through and attend daytime’s biggest night of the year.

Make sure to listen to the episode available now on iTunes here or NBC.com/Inside Salem here.

Kristian Alfonso Returns to Days of our Lives for Tribute to The Late Bill Hayes

After a few weeks of Days of our Lives fans being upset that Kristian Alfonso (Hope Williams) was not on the first list of initial returns for Doug Williams’ funeral and episodes honoring his portrayer, the late Bill Hayes, comes word that the popular star is back and taping scenes.

Kristian reported to work on the Peacock streaming soap opera on Monday, April 22nd. She shared how important it is for her to be back for this particular return to the show that made her a household name.

“My return is very bittersweet,” Alfonso told TV Insider,  “because it is the end of an era with Bill gone. So to return to Days is very sad. I am appreciative that they came to me to include me in their series of shows honoring Doug and I’m very happy to see everyone, but I’m entering the studio with a heavy heart.”

It was back in 1983 that Kristian first debuted as Doug’s daughter, and now 41 years later looking back at it, and her time with Bill Hayes is very emotional for her.

“I remember my first scenes with him/ He was very loving, very welcoming. That he was very talented and an incredible actor and an icon, that all goes without saying, but my personal relationship and my working relationship with Bill, it was home,” expressed Alfonso. “Doing the scenes with Bill, I felt like I was with my dad because there was so much warmth and reality.”

Alfonso did express some deep regret, in that she had wanted to work with Bill Hayes during her last appearance on the soap back in 2023, but according to the iconic actress, there was something in the works but it never materialized.  “I’m sad that I did not get the opportunity to do the storyline that Ron (Carlivati, head writer) had planned/ It was great; we returned to Salem to reunite with our families and I would have had father/daughter scenes with Billy. What Ron had written was beautiful and emotional and it was a fantastic story. I was 100 percent for it and the fans would have loved it.”

As for if Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope will be back on-screen together anytime soon, Kristian would only say, “What I will say is don’t give up hope.” Doug’s passing and memorial episodes will stream later this year come late November into December.

So, are you happy to learn that Kristian Alfonso is back taping episodes surrounding Doug’s memorial episodes? Comment below.
