Tomorrow is a big day for soap fans and those of Days of our Lives, because that is when Peter Reckell officially begins airing on the NBC soap opera, which is getting ready to celebrate its 50th anniversary two months from now.

Reckell is back as the iconic Bo Brady, and in an interview with Yahoo TV previewing what will happen with Bo back on the canvas, the popular actor reveals what prompted his decision to return to the series.  He also teases what fans can expect when Bo leaving Hope is finally addressed, working with his new SORAS’d on-screen daughter Vivian Jovanni, and longtime scene partner Kristian Alfonso (Hope).  Here are a few interesting excerpts:

Peter on the awkward way Bo was written off the canvas: “When Bo was written off before, it was so awkward. I don’t know, it just didn’t work. Her moving on or her holding on to him — it was just awkward, kind of weird. To have something happen during this time when Bo comes back, to explain what happened and help the audience through this change in the relationship, that’s what these writers were able to do. I can’t say enough how proud I am of them for the way they handled the writing of this ([return for Bo).

Peter on what will happen when Bo and Hope come face-to-face for the first time:  “I think you’d have to say, history, powerful, and love. It’s a powerful love history. That’s what I can say.”

Peter on working with the new Ciara, Vivian Jovanni: “I just want to say that Vivian Jovanni is amazing. That’s difficult, because I’m in love with Lauren Boles, and to have her replaced, I got to admit, at first I was disappointed. But what they’ve done, the way they’ve handled the character and her growing up, was really cool. She’s a great mixture of the characters of Bo and Hope. I think the audience is really going to connect to their relationship, because we did get to spend a lot of time together, the two characters. She’ll be kind of carrying the mantle of Bo onward.”

Peter on what fans can expect in the months ahead as familiar and beloved favorites return to the series:  “I hope you feel when you watch it that it’s just so powerful because of the history that we all have together. You’re going to witness some amazing moments of daytime TV that I haven’t experienced in my 30 years. The disappointments and struggles that the audience had to continue to watch over the last couple of years, I’m almost guaranteeing those will just disappear, because they’ll get exactly what they want in this next couple of months. I think they’ll be very pleased.”

Unfortunately, this article reveals that Peter’s stint is a short one that puts closure to Bope, which is so sad in my opinion. I am pretty confident that the writers kill him off. As much as I am looking forward to seeing him on canvas, I don’t want to invest in the show as I have done previously and I won’t be watching after he departs.

I agree with you, this is short term. Bo will be killed off, what’s the point of Peter returning. Days need not offer him a contract. What a shame. I love Peter Reckell, but Days is making a big mistake. they should have recasting Bo Brady with Michael Park ex Jack Snyder as The World Turns. Peter will be missed once he leaves Days Yet again. Days could not come to an agreement with Peter regarding a contract. Plus peter wasn’t happy with his character anymore.

A friend of mine in LA has just told me that there have rumours that Peter Reckell wants Bo Brady killed off. Don’t know if that’s true or not. But it would make sense if Peter is done with the character.

Harry

I hope not! I tuned in today just to see him. I also loved the Bo and Hope flashbacks. I wounder if the TPTB will change their minds after they witness the soaring ratings?

Kelly

Harry, If TPTB change their minds about killing off Bo Brady then they will have to recast him because apparently Peter Reckell is not interested staying longer than three months.

I have heard, don’t know if it’s true, that Peter Reckell only agreed to give DOOL three months which is why the writers may kill Bo. I really hope not. If Peter does leave after three months I hope the writers think of another plan.

blake
blake

Yeah me too. Killing him off would be lazy writing and if he didn’t like being written off three years ago he won’t like it now either. I was hoping he was back for good, if not I hope he can keep returning.

Kelly
Kelly

@blake – I don’t think that it would be fair to Hope having Bo walk in and out of her life at will. Killing Bo off may be the writer’s way of allowing Hope to really move on. If they DO recess Bo, I hope they take their time and choose the right actor. I just know that it can’t be Robert Kelker Kelly. Robert was very good on GH as Stavros BUT when last on Days he was reportedly inappropriate with the younger girls.

I think Peter Reckell will change his mind; audience will love him so much he will “come to terms” on a lucrative contract–and stay! Mark my words.
Days is doing everything right now; how can the actor resist the great writing–and the great love? It’s every actor’s dream!

Angie

I hope Days is able to work something out and keep Peter. Bo and Hope are the best couple.I love to watch Bo and Steve work together. I also love the adventures Bo and Hope do together. Please Days do what ever it takes to keep Peter on there!

I’m thrilled that Days is bringing back some beloved vets for the 50th, I hope some of them stick around for the long haul. Days is on FIRE right now with everything from storylines, characters, sets, lighting and music. If you haven’t watched in a while, or are looking to soap jump, NOW is the time!!! Days is BACK!!!

Today’s episode 9/8 was REALLY good. Not only with Bo back but with the other stories also.

I think Aidan and Clyde are involved…..I don’t know what Clyde is holding over Aidan’s head….then again, the writers don’t even know, at this point…they are teasing us.
Somehow, Aidean’s relationship with Hope; his wanting to marry her, has everything to do with Bo’s captivity….there’s a link there.
Oh, Jimmy, I am learning so much from you….I picked up you’re vibe. How am I doing? LOL.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Well, my idea was right….but, not the culprit. Aidan is taking orders from Stefano. He has Bo.
Hmmmm. Getting interesting!
Where does Clyde fit in? Could he be working for/with Stefano? How can that be? Clyde killed (presumably) EJ.

I think Paige will turn out to have an identical twin sister and its one of them dead in the shower in a kind of a nod to when Marlena’s twin Samantha was murdered back in the 80s by the Salem Strangler and some thought it was Marlena….???

I heard about Deirdre’s real life twin. Anything is possible. Maybe, Paige is just knocked out?

I think Bo and Hope are supposed to be together. My biggest concern is whether or not Peter Reckell will remain with the show.

The only reason Daniel Cosgrove was hired as Aiden was to provide a love interest for Hope after Peter left the show. The audience accepted Aiden because everyone knew Peter was the one who made the decision to leave. (Daniel Cosgrove has done a wonderful job as Aiden.) So now, how committed is Peter to the show? Is he going to be there for the long haul? Or is he going to up and leave the role high and dry?

Bope as a legendary super couple is easy to believe and accept as far as the fiction goes. But when one of the actors in the super couple leaves the role like Peter did it gives me as a viewer pause to be cautious about believing in the future of the super couple.

What if Peter decides to leave again? That will put the character of Hope baçk at square one where Days viewers did not like seeing Hope without a love interest. The bottom line is this: Peter Reckell returning as Bo is great, wonderful, etc. But be careful how you write for the character of Aiden! (I know Days tapes five months in advance. So what I am saying here may be too little too late, but it is worth saying anyway.) Do not treat Aiden in such a way that he could not return to Hope’s life. Keep the story possibility open so that if Peter decides to leave again, the writers will have somewhere to go with the character of Hope. The audience’s acceptance of Daniel Cosgrove as Aiden, Hope’s love interest, was a gift to the show from the audience. Don’t take that gift for granted. It may be hard to come by again!

@gb

the men in Hope’ life : – Bo – Aiden – Rafe –

the million dollar question… and the consensus seems to be; Peter Reckell is not here for the long haul…. in this story arc… we are to see a reunited supercouple… and tragedy….

Aiden: the comfort level of these two together is relevant. No on wants Hope to have to start all over again… ( even if Rafe is all that, in the looks dept.)

Daniel Cosgrove did something that seemed insurmountable… LOL and that’s bring life back to Hope and Ciara Alice…. Dang ! that’s big!

Rafe’alicious: OK … i’m repeating myself on this post.. but.. i’m an avid fan. Hope and Rafe ?!?! it’s beyond measure and compare that these two hotties could

but why? when things were going along just fine with Aiden? ! ? ! there are no guarantees that Hope and Rafe would shift the earths core and align … LOL just saying… why does Hope have to start all over again?

what a problem for Kristian Alfonso… and the writing team

just give the audience some prop

CeeCee
CeeCee

Of course , you are right, Patrick. If Bo were to stay, then, yes, forget Aidan. But, we all know Bo ‘s appearance on the show will be short-lived. Be that as it may, there are too many dark clouds hovering over Aidan. So, if not he, then who? Rafe? I love your so-well-phrased analysis: “there are no guarantees that Hope and Rafe would shift the earth’s core and align….”….Perfect foresight! I don’t see these two together either. I do believe Aidan does care for Hope, but, as we are beginning to be somewhat enlightened, his intentions are far from noble. He is spurred along by Stefano who is obviously holding something over his head. My confusion, Patrick, is ….what the heck does Clyde have to do with all this? How does he fit in? I do not like Aidan so much, but, for Hope’s sake, Aidan will turn out to be a good guy afterall. I just have this nagging feeling that he really did kill his wife and Stefano knows it??

According to his answers Peter will not be on the show very long. Sucks.

Why did they bring him back if they’re just going to kill him off. Bo and Hope need to be together as a family. Please don’t write Bo out of the show. Can’t there be terms that agree with Peter? I love them!

blake

It seems he didn’t want to come back for good and only wanted to wrap up his story with Bo and give the fans closure. Seems Peter is happier working with his hands and being with his family. They show had a hard time keeping him over the years, he always left and that ‘s why they recast Bo in the early 90’s.

Kelly

Gmbenet, I have heard that Peter Reckell is only back for something like three months. That apparently is all time he is willing to give to Days. After that, Peter Reckell is apparently done. There are rumours that Bo is going to be killed off. Ken Corday has said that those who are killed off will really be dead; they will not be brought back. And, Corday has said that no character is safe from being killed off.

Gmbenet
Gmbenet

Thanks for the replies. I am aware of what Ken Corday told Soap Opera Digest regarding characters who die after September 1, 2015. What I did not know is that Bo is rumored to be killed off. If that is true it explains why Rafe has suddenly developed a crush on Hope. He will be Hope’s love interest after both Bo and Aiden are gone.

It also explains a comment by Peter Reckell in the recent interview he did regarding his return and in particular his relationship with Ciara. Peter said Ciara would carry on Bo’s legacy (of behavior). I found his use of the word “legacy” quite odd. However, if Bo is going to die it becomes understandable.

I am not happy about Bo being killed off, but I understand why the decision was made to do it. At this point no other actor could play Bo. So a clean break through death will allow Hope to move on without adverse reactions from fans. It will be for the good of the show.

Regardless, I am glad they addressed the issue head on and brought closure to it. It is just hard to see some main characters die.

That seems to be the key phrase: “. . .no other actor could play Bo.”
At least, not one that would satisfy the fans.

I agree. Days is delivering good stuff, albeit there are a few elements that are making me do a double-take. What’s up with Justin? How does someone go from Dr Jekyll to Mr Hyde, overnight? OK. Stupid question and stupid comparison since the premise of Jekyll and Hyde is an overnight transformation. HaHa.
What I mean is; someone does not suddenly turn from an ok guy to a tyrant without warning. The writers are going on a tangent here….running with Justin’s extreme change in personality. He’s harsh. Does his new ‘title’ give him a sense of power? Or is it that Kiriakis ‘charm’ and hate for all things DiMera making him so vindictive and unjust? He is supposedly an officer of the court he is to keep a fair mind…innocent until proven guilty….he cannot go around blasting potential defendants in a criminal case. That is a no-no. I don’t like it much when writers go against the grain of reality too much. I know, I know, I’m a pain in the arse. LOL. He should not be the one to ‘try’ Chad….not constitutional. LOL.
Well, thing is; I love Chad….he is sexy….those eyes!! I would beg the writers to not give him to Abby…ugh. The I-can’t-get-enough-of-EJ sex-pot turned good, little demure girl. She belongs with Ben….hope they bore each other to death.

I was originally thrilled to hear that he was finally, coming home! I am a life long fan and have always been a huge Bo and Hope fan and admirer! Love them both, like family! However, my excitement turned to horror and devastation when I recently read that they were bringing him back, just to kill him off as a Hero!!!! this breaks my heart! this is NOT, what real DAYS fans want to see! If Peter could not or would not agree to come back for the long hall, they should have left things like they were! Yes, his exit was poorly written three years ago. However, we still had hope that he would someday return! Now that hope is destroyed! This is a very cruel decision to Kill him off! WE, the fans do NOT, want to see that. WE don’t want a dead hero! WE want him back with us for the long hall! So, to the new writing team and especially, to Peter Reckell, Please….. change you mind! they can write another ending! Don’t let them kill your beloved character off and end this amazing relationship! I cannot and WILL NOT, watch him be killed off on DAYS! I will stop watching before that happens! I know that I speak for thousands of fans when I say this! Please….. come back to us for good!

Broken Hearted!

It sounds like he won’t be on long as Bo from what I read. “I think the audience is really going to connect to their relationship, because we did get to spend a lot of time together, the two characters. She’ll be kind of carrying the mantle of Bo onward.”

I was really hoping that he was back for good. I hope Bo isn’t one of the victims.

When Peter Reckell wanted to leaves days and the character of Bo back in 1987 to purse a prime time TV acting career he ended up on as I remember one prime time gig which was Knots Landing and as far as I know that was it for him in prime time TV and few years later he ended up wanting back on Days and after being back a few years he wanted out again and with that decision Days decided to recast Bo and Peter Reckell was very piss about it because he created the character and felt that he could only play the role and and a recast would not work. Peter was so very wrong about his recast, when days hired Another World Robert K Kelly into the role of Bo Brady it brought a different twist to the role of Bo not only did they have Robert K Kelly grown a beard and mustache as original Bo had they made the written of him being Bo Brady to be so real and so good most fans and viewers had all but forgotten that Peter Reckell was Bo Brady. The story lines with Robert K. Kelly was actually really good not only did he work and had scenes with every cast member, he also had chemistry with them all and days was at it highest in ratings and for some unknown reason Days decided to not renew Robert K. Kelly contract due to change in storylines with the character of Bo Brady so days write Bo off for one month with him leaving to go on a special assignment leaving days and the character of Bo Brady on July 6, 1995 and by August 1, 1995 Peter Reckell returns as Bo Brady and when that happen the dynamic of the character and the show involving around Bo had done all change with the return of Peter Reckell and I as many other was very mad and upset about the rehiring of Peter Reckell because we all knew he is a wild card when it comes to being on Days he left by choice in 1987 and left by choice in 1992 and was now wanting back on the show almost shortly after he left after seeing how good Robert K. Kelly was so good and better I say as Bo so days decided to call Peter and or Peter decide to call them wanting back on the show. I knew that bringing Peter back to days would be a bad mistake because Peter after a while gets really boared and be wanting to do different projects and I knew as well as others that Peter would eventually leave and after being back playing Bo since August 1, 1995 Peter Reckell would again leaving Days which was November 2012. After Peter wanted out again after playing Bo for a third time and this time around was the longest time of 17 years, I started thinking back to the… Read more »

I actually preferred Robet Kelker Kelly. Back in the day, he was so hot. However , he retired from acting for a number of years. When GH brought him back as Starvos for a short stint during their ‘anniversary’ celebration, it was clear that his skills as an actor wtere not quite as sharp. He over acted and basically came across as annoying to watch onscreen. I have not enjoyed Reckell for many years, and his interviews in the press make him seem entitled and arrogant. I wish they did not drop Aiden to bring back Bo. I enjoy Kristian Alfonso and she deserves a more dependable acting partner than Reckell- who seems ready to leave soon after the ‘anniversary’ story lines conclude.

Peter Reckell is apparently only signed on for three months. Peter is, according to rumors, finished with the role of Bo Brady. He is 60 years old now, hard to believe I know. Like Tony Geary, Peter probably feels that it’s time to move on to other projects. And he does have a young daughter who needs more of his time and attention.

He’s already left the building. They taped all of this already cause of Days silly 6 month tape schedule which is just Bonkers. I love when they announce someone is joining the cast, yet you wont see them till the following year. Some of the new castings wont even appear till 2016. But yeah Im a little bummed they brought him back for a Short Term stint. It makes no sense.

Plus you know this is just to clear the way for that Barf inducing Rafe/Hope pairing that Days is so excited to start. Ugh, we are losing Aidan for that. Shaking my head.

One cannot have cake and eat it too. So please, writers, do not try. If an actor is back but short term, please do not shoehorn a story into the proceedings that only has them leave again and leaves us spinning wheels in the mud. Bo and Hope, even I know them well and I did not watch DAYS during their prime. If you bring them together only to kill one or have him/her leave, then why? GH did that with Brenda and with Robin. Yes, it is soap but move story and remaining characters forward. Recast the actor so the character remains viable. The over-the-top machinations and extreme situations wear on me.

When Peter Reckell left he had said it was ,due to not having much of a storyline hopefully the writers will give him enough of a challenge to make him want to stay I miss watching Bo and Hope together I’ve been watching the show for more years then I care to admit and they’ve always been a favorite

Bo will always be my first choice for Hope. I did like her with Aiden, but now that Bo’s back I’m all “Aiden who?” Aiden and Hope were nice, but Bo & Hope – fireworks! History! Legendary! That is what is drawing me back to DAYS, they are getting away from the “okay” pairings and giving us some pairings with pizzazz! Pairings to get excited about! Steve&Kayla, Bo&Hope, Chad&Abby, Eric&Nicole! I’d be more excited about John&Marlena if it weren’t just too darned easy for him to sweet-talk her into that bed. Love Caroline & Victor, anxious to see them with Bo.

I have watched the romance of Bo and Hope since they first appeared on screen. They are one of my all time favorite couples. Days did romance better than any other soap and they gave us the best super couples, first Marlena and (the real) Roman, Bo and Hope, Shane and Kim, Kayla and Patch, Justin and Adrienne. The love stories hooked us.
While I was sad to see Peter Reckell leave, I had to respect his decision. But the way it was done was pathetic. It’s as if the (then) writers were angry and they left the story dangling.
It took a while to warm up to Aiden, but I have enjoyed their romance.
Now to ruin it and turn Aiden evil so that Peter Reckell can return for a few months is really a slap in the face for fans.
Aiden will also be killed off, and Chase will stay on.
It has been confirmed that Bo is being killed off.
(Someone on DC found Peter’s sister’s post on FB saying he was only back for a few months and then being killed off).
Yes, we want a happy ending for Bope, but not just for a few months.
I would rather they waited till Kristian was ready to leave or when the show is canceled (however long that takes) and have Bo and Hope exit together.
Days has the most loyal fans, so why be so disrespectful to kill half off the most enduring super couple in its history?
The writers want Hope with Rafe, but that is a poor substitute for what Bo and Hope had.
And since the show tapes 6 months in advance, Peter is already done taping.
He said a couple of years back that they did not want to raise their daughter in LA, so they had moved to Nashville.
Too bad DAYS can’t give Peter the same type of contract Y&R gave Steve Burton so that he can commute and be on DAYS regularly.
Bo’s death is NOT the Days 50th celebration that we loyal fans deserve.

I am sad to hear this is a short stint and that he will be gone in 3 months. Since that is the case he is already gone from set since they film 5 months in advance.

I also read Allison Sweeney is not happy with this necktie story line and killing all characters off, especially her son. I don’t think too many people are happy with the story lines.

If they kill off Bo to give closure I am done when he goes. I want to see him and Fancy Face, Steve and Sweetness bring us back to times when Days was good. It is becoming more like NCIS related stories…… Signed, A Very Disappointed Longtime Days Fan

I have been watching this show since I was a young girl. I am fifty and that is a while!!
My mother is also a huge fan. The number one character we both have loved is
Peter Reckell as Bo Brady. I dropped being a faithful viewwer of the soap every day, once Peter Reckell left as Bo .
Now that he has come back to episodes we watch faithfully. I really want him to
stay as the character of Bo. I cannot believe I am hearing he will be killed off or not
stay for several more years. I think he is a great character and Peter Reckell does
an amazing job. If Peter does not stay as the character of Bo, we will stop watching.
I know it may not mean alot to you all, but seriously he really adds to the show and
is the one character that just seems right to keep. Please Peter stay for longer than
just a few months!!!!!!! We are real fans of your playing the part of Bo Brady and
hope you and these new writers see how valuable you are. Please writers and producers do what you can to keep Peter in the part of Bo for a good long while.

First, Congratulations on 50 years. I am happy to see Bo (Peter Reckell) and Patch (Stephen Nichols) back (both still look GREAT) and Bo’s scenes with Hope have been great. They still have chemistry. Can remember when they first got together. I have not watched the show since the young took over most the storylines. Have enough with real life teenagers, young adults without having to watch their behavior on tv. In fact, if I could fast forward their scenes, I would. Signed: a short-term fan.

Best thing that has happened on Days in ages. Bo is back, he and Hope should
reunite. These are the couples that have made Days successful over the years.
This show needs another stable couple like Tom and Alice , Bo and Hope fill

I have watched DOOL for years…I have loved Bo on the show the whole time. I hope they do not let him leave because i will not watch it anymore !! There are great actors on there but there is only ”ONE” Bo !!

You people are nuts if you get rid of Bo. Unless it’s coming from Peter I will not watch it anymore. I started watching DOOL IN 1965, NEVER MISSED A DAY. Losing Bo is like losing a member of my family . He is an important character on Days. You will never be able to replace him. He has that magic about him. I can tell when Hope made love to Aiden it was not the same when she kisses Bo ( that’s magic)

Bo and Hope are the best super couple Days has ever had and the reason I have watched Days over the years. After all they have been thru, they deserve a happy ending together. Please let Bo stay on…as Peter Reckell. He is our hero.

I haven’t watched days in years.but, since Bo been back I haven’t miss a show. If u take him off I will stop watching it again. Why did you even bring him back.

I can’t believe you would bring him back just to kill him off. If Peter does not want to keep playing Bo then just recast him!!!!!!! I love Peter but we or the show should not suffer because he does want to play Bo anymore. The show needs Bo back. I do not see any chemistry with Hope and Rafe together!!! they are great friends and should stay that way. I love Rafe with Kate or maybe put him with Jennifer but no chemistry with him and Hope!! If it is Days that wants Peter gone then you should not have brought him back to begin with!!! Let Peter keep his job and his role as Bo!!!!! Give Bo and Hope a happy ending that they deserve. I am sure Kayla can find a cure for him just like they do for everyone else!!!!

I think Day’s better work on Peter’s contact to make him stay. He And Hope really are the show. I’ve been watching Day’s for over 42 years. Their love story is so beautiful . Fans enjoy their story line very much. If Peter cannot stay then re cast him. Don’t kill off his character. Hope can’t go to Rafe….that was her niece’s husband. How sick are these writers!!!!!! I will no longer be watching Day’s if you kill off his character. This. Is business….swallow the bullet and give Peter a great. Contract!!! I’m sure the ratings will go straight up!!!!!!!!!! Don’t be stupid !,,,,!,,,,,,,

Jackie!

Why would you bring Bo back to Die?? Could have brought someone else in to play the part. This is messed
up!!! I will not watch it anymore!! You really have messed up for the fans!!

I too agree with the oh so many dool fans. The soap will not be the same without Bo.
It would be so much better to have recast the character. Yes, it would take a little time to get used to someone else as Bo but we would eventually accept it and enjoy the wonderful dool we all have loved and watched for so many years. As I remember, Dallas Bobby Euwing was brought back at the time of Victoria’s dream. Can’t you do the same with a diffferent actor cast as Bo? Please give this serious consideration!!
The show has lost my interest as it has hundreds of other fans.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS Promo: What’s Going To Happen At Jarlena’s Wedding Anniversary Shindig?

Coming up next week on Days of our Lives, prepare for drama, drama, and more drama! From the looks of the latest promo for the NBC soap opera, the action takes place at Marlena (Deidre Hall) and John’s (Drake Hogestyn) surprise one-year wedding anniversary soirée, where things could take a deadly turn!

But with the Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) masquerading as “Nicole” plot reaching new heights, Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) and Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) back in Salem, and the promo telling viewers “For one guest, the party, is over” followed by Sonny (Freddie Smith) yelling, “She’s got a gun!” and Brady’s (Eric Martsolf) ending line, “Oh, my God!” there is plenty to conjecture.

Also seen in the teaser is Kate (Lauren Koslow) trying to rip off the face of Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), and Stefan (Brandon Barash) and Gabi (Camila Banus) getting hot and heavy and Eric (Greg Vaughan) yelling, “No!”

So, check out the promo below and then let us know via the comment section below, what you think is about to go down at Jarlena’s party, where last August at their nuptials … things did not go off without a hitch, either!

DAYS Stacy Haiduk and Eric Martsolf Talk Kristen & Brady’s Twisted Relationship : The Mask, The Deception, The Sex

Last week on Days of our Lives, Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) was able to get the man she craves in between the sheets.  So, just how did that happen when Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) had no idea she was alive?  Well … he still doesn’t, really.  You see, Kristen returned to Salem disguised as another ex flame of Brady’s, Nicole Walker (who everyone believed died in the warehouse explosion).  And Kristen has been parading around town donning an incredible likeness of Nicole’s face – via a prosthetic mask – and some other tricks to sound and look just like her!

Kristen’s goal is to infiltrate Salem, remind Brady of the love and passion they shared, take over DiMera Enterprises, and who knows what else!  And everyone who stands in her way, better watch out as we have seen! We are speaking to you (the late) Ted, and (once kidnapped) Kate, et al.

Fans of the NBC daytime drama series have followed the tortured relationship between Kristen and Brady for years and through many plots; Kristen was first played and brought to life by Eileen Davidson, and for well over a year now by Stacy Haiduk.  Not only has Haiduk reprised the role of a frustrated, vengeful Kristen, she is also playing at times multiple roles: the wacky and often misunderstood, Susan Banks, Kristen playing Susan, or Kristen pretending to be Sister Mary Moira.

As for Daytime Emmy winner, Eric Martsolf, this latest story arc puts him front and center as viewers watch to see if what Brady senses, and the clues, and the feelings he is having, bring him to the conclusion that he has been duped by Kristen, and that her horrendous scheme – pretending to be Nicole (Arianne Zucker), and dumping Nicole’s longtime love Eric (Greg Vaughan) to be with him have a result that is unexpected or catastrophic!

Michael Fairman TV sat down with Stacy and Eric for this conversation about: all the plot twists, and playing the drama and the humor of the situations they find themselves in as actors in a wild story that only head writer Ron Carlivati could pen and keep the audience on the edge of their seats in the process. Check out this oh-so-fun, direct, and enlightening chat with two of DAYS most shining stars.

Eric, what has it been like working in this part of your storyline; where there’s the character of Kristen in its many forms: Arianne Zucker playing “Nicole” (but it’s really Kristen), Kristen as Susan, and the real Kristen, etc?

ERIC:  It’s been a nightmare Michael.  (Laughs)  I don’t know who I’m sleeping with anymore.  I’m at the point where I go home at night, and I just tug on my wife’s cheek just to make sure that she is not my ex-girlfriend from high school.

When you first heard of this storyline, and that it was going to facilitate how Arianne was going to come back to the show… and that it was supposed to be Kristen in a Nicole Walker prosthetic mask with a voice alternator, what went through your mind?

ERIC:  I think in the back of Ron’s Carlivati’s (head writer, DAYS) mind, he was thinking to himself, “This dude started his soap career on Passions, he’s okay with this kind of thing,” and honestly, nothing surprises me anymore.  When you’re thrown into that supernatural, crazy reality, doesn’t-live-here sort of atmosphere for you first soap gig, you don’t sweat a mask and a voice modulator.  That’s just par for the course.  My biggest problem was the body thing … that Brady is not able to distinguish one body from the other, because I would as Eric.  My God, I know every inch of my wife’s body.  So, it’s difficult to get my head around that, but at the same time, I’m going with the whole “love is blind” thing here. (Laughs)

Courtesy/NBC

(Laughs) I was going just going to say that Brady would absolutely know Kristen’s body from how passionate their relationship has been in the past, as well, he would Nicole’s body from his relationship with her.

ERIC:  Since Kristen did finally just succeed – let’s use the word in “seducing” him, and using her wonderful feminine wiles as only Kristen has to get Brady in to bed, there was also another twist.  What plays after that is that he notices the tattoo that’s been removed, and she plays it off as scarring from the fire.  What’s going through his mind as he is making love to Nicole is a “Kristen train”.  He can’t get Kristen out of his mind, and the guilt that he feels about that is horrendous.

Right! Brady is thinking: “Why am I feeling this when I am supposed to be with Nicole!?”

ERIC:  Right!  Brady has been waiting for a relationship for God knows how many years now – at least a successful one.  He is so eager to have this work, even though he has been concerned about how Eric (Greg Vaughan) would feel about this.  In Brady’s mind, Eric is done with Nicole.  He’s good.  He loves Sarah (Linsey Godfrey).  This is fair game.  Brady and Nicole have always been close … they’ve been close before … so, for him, it’s, why not give it a fair try?   However, he finds himself now thinking about another woman the whole time.  That’s rough.

Courtesy/NBC

Do you think in the back of his mind, that this whole time, he possibly knew that “Nicole” was Kristen?

ERIC:  Well, you just have to wait.  There will be a reveal eventually, obviously, but until then, let the games play on.

So, once Brady and “Nicole” have sex, he keeps thinking about Kristen?

ERIC:  Constantly!  She just plagues his mind.  I think he’s realizing that his affection for Kristen is anything but dead and is very alive, and I think this is Kristen’s master plan from the very beginning.  She knows that she pervades his soul, and once she does reveal herself, I would guess he would probably be surprised, maybe a little angry, but in the end … you can’t deny what your heart and your body wants, right?

One of my favorite recent scenes had Brady half-naked and Kristen as Susan getting into his room, because she was looking for the MIA Nicole mask she so desperately needed.  She finds herself gawking and lusting after Brady under her disguise, and he tries to remove himself from the situation and says, “Susan, I’m going to get in the shower…”

ERIC:  Yeah! And, “It’s not going to happen, baby.”

What was that like doing that scene?

STACY:  I loved it!  I thought Eric was brilliant in it.  I watched it, and I thought, “Oh, my God!”  (Laughs) It is one of my all-time favorite scenes.

Photo: JPI

ERIC:  Kristen is a tiger.

STACY:  She is a tiger.  She’s got a goal, and she is going to go after that.  She has obstacles that are going to come in-between her goal, but she will go after whatever she wants.

When Stacy comes in to Brady’s room as Susan, were you not laughing?

ERIC: No!  I thought she was hot. (Laughs)

STACY:  He did … he loved it.  You liked me, didn’t you baby? (Laughs)

ERIC:  I don’t think anybody can deny that Stacy Haiduk’s portrayal of Susan Banks is ridiculously good.  Everything from her delivery … to her facial expressions.  I think it is amazing.  I mean, it is corny, and it is fun, and soaps need characters like that once in a while to lighten the load of the heavy dialogue and the drama.  It’s a welcomed addition.  So, I love playing scenes with Susan.

Eric, you always have been able play the straight-man so well in comedic scenes with impeccable timing,

STACY:  You’re brilliant, Eric.

ERIC:  You guys are being very nice to me.

STACY:  You are.  I remember on the day how much fun we had, but then, seeing it back and the crap that I was giving you, and just the stuff you were giving back was so beautiful, and innocent, and so alive.  It was so funny.

Does Kristen think that now that she finally got Brady into bed that she won … that she got what she wanted … even if she had to don a “Nicole” mask to do it?

STACY:  Well, no, because she still can’t be really Kristen.  I think she is grateful that she gets to be with him.  That’s one of her biggest goals: to be with Brady and she wants to have him fall back in love with her again.  But for her, now it’s all about, “How do I reveal myself so that he doesn’t get scared away?”  That’s the toughest part for her.  Kristen’s love is so deep that it goes beyond this mask.  So, how is it going to be when he sees her?   Is he going to freak out?  What’s going to happen?

ERIC:  Did you think Kristen would be a little pissed off and think, “Oh my God.  He did go for Nicole?”

STACY:  Yes!  I do, because she’s like, “Finally, I got him!  But wait a minute … did I get him because I was Nicole … or because I was Kristen?”  As Kristen, she always believes there is something deeper between them and a deep connection.  That remains a driving force to her.

Photo: JPI

ERIC:  That’s why I love these characters so much, because of you and the history of Kristen with Brady.  She’s always wanted him as much as he has wanted her.  She’s always wanted to be loved.

STACY:  Yes … and very much so.

ERIC:  Kristen had always wanted to be a part of the DiMera Empire, just as Brady has always wanted to be a part of the Kiriakis Empire, and they’ve always wanted love.  They’ve never had it.  They believe in the back of their minds that anything is attainable.  So, I can see why Kristen would just forgo the Nicole disguise and just go, “He wants me.”

STACY:  Kristen wants to believe that Brady knows it.  She says to herself, “He knows it’s me inside and behind the mask.  When he finds out, he will fall back in love with me.”

Now that she actually had sex with Brady, wouldn’t that make Kristen even more insatiable to be with him? Like, “I’ve got to have him!?”

STACY:  The fear is still .. what happens she takes this mask off?  She always says, “I’ll reveal myself, but I have to do it slowly when it is the right time.”  I think there is that built up frustration now for her, absolutely!

Photo: JPI Studios

Arianne Zucker really has Stacy’s mannerisms down as Kristen.  It really comes into in scenes where “Nicole” goes off on someone or loses her temper.  Eric, you have worked with Arianne for years on this show.  What do you think about her performances in this storyline?

ERIC:  I have worked with Ari over the years, and I have enjoyed it a lot.  Ari did do her homework.  She did study Stacy’s tape, and she watched her mannerisms, and she took it very seriously.  I know that because she is a hard worker, as much as a goofball as she is, she does work hard, and she wanted it to be good.  I think my favorite parts were the Kristen meltdowns.  You have to understand though; Stacy and Ari get along very well!  They’re kind of two peas in a pod.  So, it wasn’t a big stretch for her to take on how Stacy would play those types of scenes.  They’re both animated, they’re both wild people by nature, and so, it was a good fit.  It was a smart idea from the writers.

STACY:  It was a good fit!

ERIC:  I’ve been out with the two of them, and it’s hard to tell the two of them apart. (Laughs)

STACY:  We are just like two cuddly bunnies.

ERIC:  They’re like flirting with each other, and hugging each other.  You find yourself thinking, “Are they going to start ordering the same food at the same time?  This is getting weird. (Laughs)

Courtesy/NBC

In the recent scene that aired; where Kristen as “Nicole” turns off the light while having sex with Brady, is she worried her plan will now go awry?

STACY:  Yes.  I think she is worried about her body because it is burned.  You know, how they take a tattoo off, and it’s as painful as can be.  Not that I’ve had that done personally.  I like my tats, but I hear it is painful.  So, in the storyline, the burn is that pain that she has and the tattoo. There’s a part of her that thinks,  she has to cover it up, and turn the lights down low.

ERIC:  “Nicole” is sleeping, and Brady is rubbing his hands over her shoulder and touching her body, and as he goes over the burn marks.  He sees a flash of the tattoo!  That is a pivotal moment when he starts to put some pieces together.   He thinks, “Woah! That’s exactly where that tattoo was.”  It’s a slow little rollercoaster ride.

Courtesy/NBC

In the past, Kristen then played by Eileen Davidson, drugged and raped Father Eric.  Stacy, did you ever see that story arc?  Literally the sex scene is playing on the screen at Kristen’s wedding to Brady and then all hell breaks loose.  This to say Kristen is notorious for the ways and the lengths she goes to get her men into bed.

STACY:  Yes! I saw her Eileen do those scenes.

ERIC:  You also saw how close Kristen and Brady were to their dream, to their happiness, their goal, which was they were going to marry each other.  Brady is looking upon his loved ones in this town and thinking, “I know what you all think of her, but I’m going to show you our love on this screen, and once you see the connection that we have here as a couple, you all are going to be convinced that we belong together as well.  This is the happiest day of my life,” and the screen comes up and it’s his brother banging Kristen instead.

Marlena (Deidre Hall) played the wrong DVD!

STACY:  It was so good.  See, I try to find as much info as I can on the character’s past, because all of the time I’m trying to find where these characters have been in their dark and twisted past.

Photo: JPI

ERIC:  You’re putting your own stamp on Kristen.  You got a direct call from DAYS casting department, didn’t you … when they were recasting the role?

STACY:  Yes.  You have to understand, I had two really separate characters to play when I was on Y&R.  One was a doctor, and one was this crazy passionate, wild, little minx.

ERIC:  I will say to find the wild and the beauty in one package is not easy in any town, yet alone Los Angeles.  I’m glad they called you, because you have that.  You have that villainous nature, but you also are able to show a vulnerable side to Kristen that is going to be a lot of fun and interesting to see.

Stacy is one of those people that will leap off of the screen at you and you will remember her.  She is one actress that will have fans talking about their work, like when you played crazy Patty Williams on Y&R.  The audience was on the edge of their seats going, “Oh, my God!  What is Patty going to do next?”

STACY:  I never knew what she was going to do!

Photo: JPI

Eric, has Stacy come to you at any point where she been overwhelmed by the task at hand; playing Susan while playing Kristen, etc, and the two of you have a moment where you work through some of the challenges of complex scenes  … and ones where she is playing multiple characters?

ERIC:  We’ve had many moments  to speak of.

STACY:  I always come into Eric’s room, and am like, “I’m scared!”

ERIC:  It’s funny you mention it.  We have had some very emotional scenes, and Stacy – who cares so damn much about this job and portraying this character correctly – that she gets a little overwhelmed, and the material that they give her is overwhelming for any anybody on any level.  I have looked at her in the eyes, and said, “You’ve got this gig.  You are this character.  You are knocking it out of the park.  Just do it.  Just be you.”   I can’t wait for people to see some of the stuff we have shot recently and have been doing.

Photo: JPI

Stacy, do you think Kristen can be redeemed? Many characters on daytime … and on DAYS … have done horrible things and later turned over a new leaf.

STACY:  The thing is that villains are bad and all that other crap, but they’ve got a lot of stuff going on inside and insecurities, and they’ve got a heart.  I’m sorry, the villain with a heart of gold, can be very  true.  I never see villains (and I play them a lot) as bad.  You have to find where it comes from … how far does this go … where did that little seed change … and what made them go into the dark, but also, where is the good?  You want to bring the good to it, too.

ERIC:  Let’s face it!  Star Wars is all about Darth Vader and how he became that because it’s intriguing.

Because of the pace in which DAYS tapes its episodes; do the two of you find time to run lines together before you go hit the set?

ERIC:  We are running out of time to run lines.  It’s pretty wild.  Funnily enough, I was recently filming a movie and I was so underwhelmed at the pace of everything.  I’ve gotten so accustomed to moving at this militant style, that as hard as it is, it is preferable to me now.  I almost like it because you don’t have time to overthink what you are going to do, and you end up getting more visceral and natural reactions to the material.  You can overthink a scene, and you can come to a wrong performance that way.  When you burn your fingers on a hot stove, that’s the most natural reaction you are going to get.  You can’t have ten minutes to think about how you are going to scream about that pain.

Photo: JPI

But, would you like the pace of shooting the show to be a bit slower?

STACY:  I would like to, but I do think sometimes just jumping in, and going and seeing what happens is great.  I love that.  I do appreciate that.

ERIC:  It’s scary.

STACY:  It is scary.  I would love if we would get to do a rehearsal and then two takes just to see, and then they can mix  together what happens.  Sometimes I am hard on myself as an actress.  I’ve always been.  It’s that jumping in when you only get to do one take.  You have to just give it everything you’ve got.

ERIC:  You can have a second take.  Want me to give you a little secret?  All you have to do is screw up your last line.

STACY:  I can’t do that.   I don’t even need it to be perfect because nothing is perfect.  It doesn’t matter what I’ve done if I sometimes don’t feel it.  I need to feel it when I’m on that set.  I need to feel something because when I shut down, I close myself off.  It’s like an athlete who has just got to  train as hard as they can to reach their goal.

ERIC:  You’re an Olympic swimmer!

STACY:  You’ve got to do it as hard as you can.  You practice, and you practice, and you practice, and you practice, so that when you come to that day, you do the best you can, but sometimes you are disappointed because you didn’t get that one last thing you had hoped for.

Courtesy/NBC

How do you view what happened to Eric with Kristen, who disguised as Nicole, tricked Brady into bed with her?  Some fans commented that that they thought it was akin to a rape.

ERIC:  No, I would disagree with that theory.  I believe there is a high degree of deception in this, but there is a willingness on behalf of Brady.  He’s not drugged.  He’s not being forced to do anything.  Deception, yes.  Rape, no.

Stacy, what do you think?

STACY:  Total deception.  There is no rape.  There is absolutely no rape.  These are willing participants; he just doesn’t know exactly who he is dealing with.

ERIC:  I appreciate the context of how somebody could construe that, and the seriousness of the matter.  I don’t think it really has a place in this particular storyline.

Do you guys think that Brady and Kristen are each other’s star-crossed lovers in a weird, twisted, bizarre way?

ERIC:  I don’t know.  I think they’re magnetism can’t be denied.  I think the hurdles that they’ve jumped through are astronomical.  Will they end up together in the end?  Who knows!  Will there ever be an end?  Who knows!  It’s definitely been one of, if not the most, in-depth relationships Brady has ever had.

Photo: JPI

And intense!

ERIC:  Yeah.  They’ve just gone through so much to be together, and when you do that, anybody who is married knows that, that’s where the good stuff is; the wars that you win together and the battles that you go through.  When you come out of the war, and you’re still together, that’s the bond.  That’s what lasts.

What would Kristen do if she couldn’t have Brady in the end?  Would she find a new obsession?  What if she could not nab her man?

STACY:  Wow!  Hmmm. (Laughs)  She’s going to get her man.  She wants her man.  She wouldn’t settle.  She’d keep fighting.  I would say to her, “Kristen, keep fighting the good fight.”

So, do you think Kristen will reveal herself to Brady sooner than later? Will Brady figure out what Kristen has been doing to get to him?  Will Brady turn Kristen away if he knew she was alive and back in action  … or would he fall back into her arms?

Daytime Emmys To Merge Younger Actor & Actress Category Into One As Gender-Inclusive Categories Are On The Rise

The upcoming 47th annual Daytime Emmys are already making some changes to key categories and specifically this one that affects daytime drama performers.  Word from Variety is that NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) is going to announce that they are combining the Younger Actor and Actress categories into one gender-neutral category

Not only will the Younger performer category be gender-inclusive, but network soap performances will be combined with digital drama series performances for the category.  Previously, for this past Daytime Emmys, NATAS had changed the Guest Performer in a Drama Series to be gender-inclusive.

This category was initially created in 1985 when it was called the Outstanding Ingenue and then from there tweaked into Outstanding Juvenile Female and Male, and more recently that morphed into the Younger Actor and Actress categories.

Photo: JPI

Former GH star Hayley Erin (Ex-Kiki) and former DAYS star, Kyle Pettis (Ex-Theo) will now be the last female and male to win the two separate categories with this new move for 2020.

Fans of film and TV have noticed that on several award shows on MTV: their Movie and TV Awards and their VMA’s, there are several gender-inclusive categories, as well as the Television Critics Association Awards who for instance doles out Outstanding Individual Achievement in Drama in comedy.
