During this past weekend’s Day of DAYS 2016, On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman chatted with one of the all-time great DAYS supercouple, Patch and Kayla, played by Stephen Nichols and Mary Beth Evans.

During the conversation, the trio talked about Steve’s proposal to Kayla, and how the fans were looking forward to seeing that moment on air.  Mary Beth related why it played so sweetly to the audience, “He’s (Steve) had been trying really, really diligently for so long!”

As for if Stephen ever gets frustrated with constantly having to wear an eye-patch, he noted: “I don’t mind the patch at all. Sometimes it’s irritating, but I love the patch.  It’s unique.”

Mary Beth chimed in on why Stayla is so popular all these years later: “I think the way the writing has been they have let us grow as people. We didn’t have to fall in love again like we did in our 20’s, and Albert Alaar (co-executive producer, DAYS) who is amazing, wanted to see a relationship between people who have known each other a long time, and how that evolves.” But overall, it all comes back to how great Stephen and Mary Beth are together on-screen. Evans added,”We have a great connection.”

So if Patch and Kayla eventually tie the knot, will it be marital bliss?  Stephen answered: “It’s a soap opera.  What do you think? (Laughs).”

When the interview turned to the casting of their on-screen son, Joey, played by James Lastovic, Stephen reveals he saw James audition tape with Mary Beth, and thought he was terrific.  Later, when talk turned to the Daytime Emmys, Mary Beth realized it’s her turn to host the ladies luncheon with the upcoming nominated lead actresses, since she is the defending champion category.

Hi Michael, Thank you so much for this interview with Mary Beth Evans and Stephen NIchols. They have been my favorite actors since 1986. They are two of the most genuine people and have such respect and love for one another it is a pleasure to witness. I love how they can laugh with one another and the ease they have with one another. I have had the good fortune of meeting them a couple of times. I am always so nervous but they are just so nice. You asked great questions too. I truly hope Steve and Kayla finally… Read more »

Thanks for this interview. I really enjoy listening to their thoughts about what’s going on between Steve and Kayla. Stephen and Mary Beth seem like good people. There are no two characters I’d like to see married more than Steve and Kayla. Heck, I’ve been waiting since 2006 when they reunited after Kayla thought he was dead for 16 years. I thought we’d get a wedding THEN, but the show acted like that 16 year separation wasn’t a big deal. The show never acknowledged that their 1990 wedding probably was no longer valid due to his being gone for more… Read more »

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.

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
