This afternoon, Days of our Lives marked the official 40th anniversary of it’s long time series star Suzanne Rogers (Maggie Horton), with a surprise on set celebration for the Daytime Emmy winner and Salem favorite!

On-Air On-Soaps was at the festivities, and even had a hand at Suzanne getting shall we say,”punk’d”!  While the cast and crew and media were gathering themselves on the NBC sound stage to honor Suzanne, we were sitting with her in her dressing room conducting a “40th anniversary interview”, to allow them time to congregate!  Next,  the cue over the PA system came that, “Everyone needed to be summoned to the stage … now!”   With that, we had to tell Suzanne our “interview” was concluded for now, and we would continue it later! We next followed Suzanne to the sound stage with her having not a clue of the celebration that was awaiting her!  Needless to say, she was overwhelmed!

After DAYS executive producer, Ken Corday made a speech in Suzanne’s honor, Suzanne then made a very touching speech in her own right to the crowd that had gathered.  Her mom was also on set at the celebration.  Next, Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie), the long time cast member of Rogers, asked for everyone’s attention and delivered a beautiful, often times emotional tribute to her co-star and friend.  And for those who have followed DAYS and Suzanne’s career, you know of the ups and the downs and references made in Seaforth Hayes words below!

Susan Seaforth Hayes: “I’d like to say something from the cast about my friend Suzanne. We all knew when she came on the show she was a Broadway baby. So when she came on, she was not ignorant on how to behave, or how to be a professional. I would like to thank her for always being on time.  I would like to thank her for always knowing her lines and having written down her blocking. And, for having mentored dozens of young performers and yes, she showed many of them how to do it.  However, most of those kids are gone, and Suzanne is still here. On behalf of the wardrobe department, I would like to thank Suzanne for not changing sizes for 40 years!  And Susan maintained her beauty and her health, perhaps at the cost of her private life. Suzanne has truly been married to this show.  Her work has come first, and no time for other things. When regimes have gone by, she has sat in the outfields of the show for years at a time, and she never came to work with an attitude. She always came to work with a smile, and with grace. Suzanne is one of four actresses of Days of our Lives to have won an Emmy and that’s a big deal! I am not the only one who loves her.  I know that America loves her and thinks of her as their sweetheart, because she stayed true and beautiful. I don’t want to steal Suzanne’s glory. I just want her to know, there are hundreds of people who adore you, and are so proud of you. ”

Suzanne is done a great job becoming the show’s matriarch since the passing of Francis Reid. I wish the show would showcase more scenes with Maggie and Victor. I think her best chemistry was with Melonie. I loved all of their scenes together. She is such a classy, beautiful woman and you can tell the young cast adore her. As a fan, I would like her to know how much I have enjoyed her on the show, from her red dancing shoes to becoming Victor’s wife. Suzanne, you are the best!

Congrats, Suzanne! I have watched you on TV for many years, before “Days”. You are truly a wonderful actress and a beautiful woman. My favorite show you did was “Little House on the Prairie”. I loved tat storyline and that irish accent! I believe you had another role even before that snow and used that accent. You are an inspiration and I thank you for that. Love, Rebecca

What a nice article about two such classy women. Days has been lucky to have them both for so long.
And we’ve been lucky to have had the chance to watch them work.

And how great that we’re seeing vets like Suzanne and Susan utilized – and prized – on DOOL, when they’ve been cast aside or marginalized on too many other shows.

Hurray for them!

Beautriful speech for an even more beautiful woman who has been the staple of DAYS for the past 40 years and will hopefully grace the show for many more years. Congratulations to Ms. Rogers on her milestone! I love Maggie, and hope to continue loving her!

Ms. Suzanne Rogers.

Hello Maggie! Congratulations on 4 decades of gratitude. you clearly found your niche.

40+ years of Maggie and Salem… is a feat unlike, any can experience… and Fan sentiment is loyal… you enrich Salem.

I appreciated reading the latest issue of SOD, which is celebrating and acknowledging your being in Days of OUR Lives.

I loved how…. your first 2 1/2 years… you spent in crutches….. ie: back then… DAYS was a 1/2 hour show. and fans reached out to you … saying how you survived that incident…

I loved how… you shared… your broadway beginnings… as a dancer/actor… and that McDonald Carey… was a tap dancer… and that you and he would share dance steps… and alas, you bonded with the spirit of DAYS.

I love… how you’ve remained true to the Horton’ Family…. I’ll say it again… i’ve christened you Mother Horton.

I love… you with Victor…. the two of you beam and radiate Love for… each other .. and your loyal, devoted, character portrayal of family.

in these times…. it’s simply comforting and understood… to know… a person’s character… be it nice, gracious, patient, caring, fulfilled, nurturing, understands without prejudice…. OK… you get my definition…. Thank You Suzanne for being yourself.

Maggie has never been better… than now

I LOVE my DAYS

I SO CLEARLY REMEMBER THE FIRST SCENE WITH MAGGIE-ON HER CRUTCHES TO ANSWER THE DOORBELL, RUNG BY MICKEY HORTON. I REMEMBER THEIR SCENES WITH THE RED SHOES, WHEN HE PROMISED HER THEY WOULD DANCE WHEN SHE RECOVERED FROM HER SURGERY.
DESPITE HER LAPSES OF JUDGEMENT AT TIMES-EVEN HER ALCOHOLISM-MAGGIE HAS ALWAYS SHOWN HERSELF TO BE STRONG AND WILLING TO TAKE BLAME FOR WHAT SHE HAS DONE WRONG. SHE WAS NOT A GOODY-GOODY, BUT A ROUNDED CHARACTER PLAYED BY A CLASSY ACTRESS.

I, too, remember Suzanne’s early days — her boyfriend Jay Livingston (Larry Delaney) and farm friends Hank Field & Rosie Carlson (Frederic Downs and Fran Ryan). The fact that she was able to stand out in the formidable company of Susan Flannery (Laura Horton), Corinne Conley (Phyllis Anderson), and Patricia Barry (Addie Olsen) really says something!

Thanks, Suzanne, for 40 wonderful years…

I have been a fan of Days of Our Lives ever since it came on the air.For a time when I worked in the ’80s couldn’t watch it, but we used to listen to it on the radio. I will always love this show and all the actors on it. The worst thing I have ever saw was poor Vivian in the casket,who put Maggie in there….The story lines are pretty good. Please put Nicole with Father Eric to be happy ever after. Make that druggie brat of Jennifer’s go away, so she can be with the doc…..Find Hope somebody nice to be with,…it won’t be Bo, but there must be somebody out there.Please get Sammi out of Jail so that she and EJ can be happy. Just my thoughts

Nice tribute by Susan Seaforth Hayes. Glad Days veterans are as cherished by the show as much as we fans cherish the characters they play. You can’t have one without the other.

It’s wonderful Days had a celebration of Suzanne Rogers 40th anniversary on the show. It’s a big accomplishment, especially in show business. Only the soaps have such long relationships between actor, character and audience.
I really enjoyed Maggie and Victor’s slow ‘courtship’ on Days. I could tell from an early Victor/Maggie scene that Maggie was sparking with Victor. That’s how good Suzanne Rogers is!

Congratulations to Suzanne, and looking forward to more Maggie and Victor.

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.
