Days of our Lives icon, Deidre Hall (Marlena) along with the newest member to the DAYS family, Daytime Emmy winner, Tyler Christopher (Stefan) chatted it up with TV Insider during the recent NBC Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, and a short video has been posted.

In it, Deidre and Tyler talk about the show’s writing under head writer Ron Carlivati, just how big of a baddie is Stefan O. DiMera, and the importance of social media and engaging with the viewers of DAYS about episodes, scenes, etc.

Currently in story, Marlena is starting to figure out something is off with her hubby John (Drake Hogestyn), and Stefan clearly has the “hots” for Abigail (Marci Miller) his half-brother’s wife.  All in a day in the life of the residents of Salem, right?

Check out what Deidre and Tyler shared after the jump.  Then let us know what you hope happens on-screen for Marlena in story, and for Stefan in story, via the comment section below.

It was nice hearing the praises for Ron C. He so well deserves it for turning the show around and making it a must watch show. Tyler has fit so perfectly on the show. Just hope Vivian sticks around. And Marlena and John are front and center again with a story. The most improved soap this year!

outside of these two wonderful beings : TWO THINGS

1. even i’m believing that Eli is the biological father. even if.. he told mom Valerie that Lani is two months along.. therefore it can’t be his. do I think JJ would accept this child… absolutely. I love Lani.

2. I keep asking myself… : WHY am I so choked up about Steve ( Patch ) Johnson being poisoned ???? by John… or as @Celia has mentioned.. the Pawn.. which may make sense ??? HELP… i’m sobbing about this

Because we love their previous relationship as partners.

And, of course, we are choked up because we love the character of Patch so much–and love Kayla. And Stephen and Mary Beth care so very much about keeping the characters faithful for the audience. They don’t ever thumb their noses at their fan, either. Good on them!

the one thought that keeps surfacing….

“That’s Kayla Husband ” as i’m losing it. and yes… that decades true love that surfaces with… all the audience….

hey I just got confirmation… that we’re right

@Ray on another thread… confirms this is his favorite story line.

it’s hang on

that’s a true definition for serial in top form

I like him but he’s playing the exact. same. character. he played on GH. EXACTLY the same. And can we please have him in a scene without Vivian and not in that same room?

I watched Days for a couple months in the Fall when I was hanging out with my mom regularly in the afternoon (it’s her show) and was happily impressed. I don’t have the time now and it’s not my show (General Hospital is but is in the deep recesses of horrible) so I’m not going to make time for it but I do recommend that soap fans support it in general because it’s probably the best soap on TV right now (and I say that without knowing much about Y&R and B&B.) If Days becomes popular then the other soaps may follow in its footsteps and try for some of the same tone and vibe that fans love (and that likely many fans of other soaps like GH want in their show.)

Hopefully he can keep it up…the best year on OLTL was its finale year and written by Ron!!!…i really dont think GH was his best work but he did have some good stuff once in awhile there…like OLTL Days is better suited for him!!!

I love Tyler from back in The Lying Games and GH. As far as the poster me said, about him playing the same character type. I like that type, strong, serious, mysterious, some bad, some good, and a lot sexy. What more could you ask for?

I’m not really enjoying Tyler’s acting. I don’t think it is very good and it surprises me that he won an Emmy.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Wally Kurth & Chandler Massey Deliver Poignant Scenes As Justin Tells Will ‘Don’t Give Up On Life’

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the scenes capturing the minds of DAYS viewers featured touching work from Wally Kurth (Justin) and Chandler Massey (Will).

In it, after seeing Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) in prison, Justin comes upon Will, the man responsible for his beloved wife, Adrienne’s death (although the circumstances of just how Will was responsible have yet to come to light within the time jump).

Justin informs Will he is taking over Ben’s case, and Will thinks that with Justin on his side, Ben will have a better chance of getting out of the slammer.  Then, a guilt-ridden Will tells Justin that he thinks about Adrienne every single day and he will never stop hating and loathing on himself for being responsible for taking the love of Justin’s life away from him, and for what it has done to Will’s husband, Sonny, who has lost his mother in the process, and caused a huge rift in their marriage.

As things get more emotional between the two men, Will tells Justin that in his heart Adrienne was like a mom to him. Then, an emotional Justin tells Will he knows he did not mean to harm Adrienne.  Will thanks Justin, but thinks Justin hates him.  It is then that Justin reveals he could never hate Will.

Justin admits he hates what Will did, but let’s him know in no uncertain terms that he thinks of Will as a son, and will not and can’t stop loving him.  As Justin begins to tear up, he becomes emotionally overwhelmed by the sadness of the entire situation, and tells Will, “You’re a part of our family for better or worse.”

Next, Justin reminds Will that no matter what happens life goes on.   He himself is a perfect example as he has fallen in love with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and is happy for the first time in many months.  Then in the punctuation point of the scene, Justin tells Will to never give up on life and the two embrace.

Stephen Nichols On His DAYS Return As Stefano: “I Knew I Didn’t Want To Be A Cheap Imitation.”

By now, Days of our Lives fans have witnessed that the heralded return of longtime favorite, Stephen Nichols came with a twist.  When Nichols re-emerged on the canvas, he was now playing Stefano DiMera, but in the face and body of what seems to be Steve “Patch” Johnson.

Nichols, who along with Mary Beth Evans, have been known as enduring supercouple Patch and Kayla, and now they find themselves in the Salem time jump in a different set of circumstances,  First of all, Kayla is romantically involved with Justin Kiriakis (Wally Kurth), and Nichols returned as Stefano and is in ca-hoots with Princess Gina (Kristian Alfonso).

In an interview in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Stephen opens up about taking on the classic soap villain role made famous by the late, great Joe Mascolo.

Nichols admitted there was some trepidation taking on and in approaching how to portray the role: “It was daunting and a major challenge to take on. I knew I didn’t want to be a cheap imitation. I wanted to get Stefano’s essence.”

In preparing for his new journey on DAYS, Nichols noted: “I watched the master, Joe Mascolo.  I got lots of videos of Stefano. Stefano in every mode: Manipulating, laughing, Stefano with the ladies, with his children, and, of course, Stefano raging.”
