VIDEO: DAYS Deidre Hall and Tyler Christopher Talk Ron Carlivati, Stefan’s Villainy, and Social Media!



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 Preview – Week of December 3, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, now that Hope (Kristian Alfons) has decided to form a top-secret alliance with Ted Laurent (Gilles Marini), can she keep this hidden from Rafe (Galen Gering) without dire consequences to their relationship?  Hope is hell-bent on bringing down Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), and if it means joining forces with Ted to do it, it appears she is willing to take the risk.

Meawhile, Leo, played to perfection by Greg Rikaart, continues his threats against Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey), and it looks like he has the upper-hand!  Will Sonny have to marry Leo to get him to keep his mouth shut once and for all?

Then, it looks like all systems go for a Lani (Sal Stowers) and Eli (Lamon Archey) love affair when the cop fesses up to her feelings for the guy.

In addition, here is what else to look for in Salem this week below:

Monday, December 3

Abigail tries to trick Stefan into getting her released from Bayview.

Tuesday, December 4

Wednesday, December 5
