In honor of Days of our Lives 45th anniversary celebration, On-Air On-Soaps continues it’s week long fan voting polls leading up to this coming Saturday’s November 6th, A DAYS OF DAYS event with the cast. On-Air On-Soaps will be on hand at the annual press and fan fest taping video interviews with all your Salem favorites, and during our time with the stars we will announce to them and for the first time, the chosen winners as picked by you, their loyal viewing audience, in several fun categories. And yes, your picks will receive the DAYS 45/On-Air On-Soaps Gold Medal for a keepsake. Think of this as the voting Olympics for die-hard or even the most casual DAYS fan.

Here’s the rules and all you have to do. To clarify, you may only vote once in each category from the same computer. You can vote all the way up until Friday night, November 5th at 10PM PST when the polls close.

Today’s new categories are: Best Overall Performance by an Actor, Favorite Doctor, and Favorite Veteran Performer. About these nominations: Best Overall Performance by an Actor selections are based from the calendar year of November 1, 2009 to November 1, 2010 – in other words from DAYS 44th anniversary calendar year to their 45th.  It is for the actor’s body of work during the eligibility period described above, not for one single performance in a storyline. Favorite Doctor – Salem is now filled with a bunch of physicians!  Who would you choose to be your doctor from our nominees?  Think, bedside manner, if they have made important diagnosis or saved lives in surgery, and if you think they are trustworthy and that you could confide in them. Much to think about! Favorite Veteran Performer selections represent those fantastic actor and actresses who are still on the soap, who have been part of the DAYS canvas for decades, and who without them the historical perspective of DAYS would not be complete. We  honor them here.

Remember, if you don’t agree with our nominees and suggestions in the categories, you have the option of entering “Other”. And, if you haven’t vote in the other categories make sure to vote for Favorite Flawed Heroine and Favorite duo by clicking here. Also, cast your vote for Favorite Hottie, Baddie and Hero by clicking here. And cast your vote for Beloved Salem Favorite Female, Favorite Vixen, and Favorite Young Star by clicking here.

No offense, but Days is not what is used to be or could be. So many actors/characters who are on now stink. Below is my Days wish list.:) 1. Actors I want to return? Don Craig(played by Jed Allan.) Mike Horton(played by Micheal T. Weis.) Bill Horton Roman(played by Wayne Northrop.) make Josh Taylor Chris Kositchek again Steve Johnson Shane Donovan 2. Actress I want to return? Marlena Evans Liz Curtis Melissa Horton Jennifer Horton Kayla Johnson Kim Donovan Center the show around the Hortons. End the Dimera crap. Let EJ, Kate, Chole, Nicole, Brady, go. Bring on Victor Webster… Read more »

Yes, please and thank you – other than Julie being Hope’s mother. That would destroy the memory of Addie, and the Horton legacy is already sorely missing from this show.

Bring back Bill (the guy who played him for Alice’s funeral was a good casting choice), get anyone other than Jamie for Laura; there is also Tommy, Sandy, Julie’s brother Steven; the list of missing Horton’s goes on and on.

Bring back Liz! Gloria Loring is a wonderful actress and this 45-year viewer misses her on the show.

I have been watching this show since I was little in the early 70’s(Yes I am showing my age lol.) The show was centered around the Hortons. It was so beautifully written. It was about family, social storylines, love, romance and it had humor. The show is a shell of what it used to be. There are so many actors who are on it now who stink. Their characters have no soul. It is also hard to see Kayla, Justin and Adrienne wasted. It has become a show about blackmail, secrets, paternity test Oh ya and the Dimeras. The only… Read more »

Actually this soap is about the Horton granted (i also want more Horton to come back) but ONE family doesn’t make this show. There are THREE powerful families since years who have built this show. They are the Horton of course but also the Brady and the Dimera and let’s not forget the Kiriakis which are important also in their own way. So we can have the Horton and the Dimera, we can have a show about family, social storylines, romance AND drama, blackmails, secrets in order to give conflicts, to be exiting and entertaining…sorry i don’t want to watch… Read more »

I am not saying the show should be Little House LOL!!! I am also not saying the Horton’s should be the only family. The show was created with the Hortons, something Mr. Corday and the writers have forgotten. The show has lost its heart. Yes blackmail is interesting to a degree, but that is all the show has become. There is no humor, no romance that make you want to watch and tape, so you don’t miss it. Heaven forbid two characters have a conversation about something other than a secret, a man, blackmail, or who’s the daddy LMAO!!!! I… Read more »

James Scott overall Actor…He is the most talented soap actor to come along in a long time and he is just so good looking.
Renee Jones performance as doctor…Always loved Lexie.
Joe Mascolo as veteran actor……this one was hard because I love John Aniston and Suzanne Rogers too.

I agree with you on all categories…but it is a tossup for me between Joe and John cuz I just love Victor’s dry wit!!!

I disagree w/Sally, I probably wouldn’t be watching the show if it centered around the Hortons. I like that it’s a lot Darker than it used to be.

The Dimera’s are a very talented family LOL. James Scott, Joe Mascolo and Renee Jones are all exceptional actors, some of the best on the show and I never tire of watching them. John Aniston would have been my second choice for veteran actor

HRMitchell
Guest
HRMitchell

Yes, the actors are exceptional, but EJ is a character that should not even be as old as Will. SORASing a character taht much breaks any connection long-time viewers have, and in the end, it is long-time viewers that keeps a show on the air.

This is one 45-year viewer that has stopped recording it, and if I happen to miss it, oh, well – nothing much lost.

Oh please he is certainly not the only who has mess up sorasing, if you know the show’s history you know that Mike Horton, yeah a HORTON has been sorased, desorased i can’t even number how many times but Mike was a great character nonetheless like Ej Dimera is a great character that a talented actor succeed to make a flesh out, dynamic no matter the sorasing..i can name some other characters who had not been hurt by a sorasing but who are pretty dull and played by some bad actors..so i prefer by far the great character played by… Read more »

I have been watching 25 years. Was watching when Philliip was born (went from 4 to 15) as well as EJ and others who have been sorased over the years. At least Ej was gone a long time before they brought him back unlike Phillip and others. Thanks to JS acting I don’t feel any connection was broken. Sorasing can be annoying but IMO there are worse things, like bad acting and poor, drawn out or repeat SL. I for one am glad they sorased Ej cuz if not I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the amazing Ejami chemistry that… Read more »

There are a number of very talented actors on Days, but James Scott rises far above the rest. The passion and effort that he puts into his acting has been evident in every scene since he started on this show in 2006. James has the very special ability to convey an unspoken message in a scene that requires no dialogue. He is truly an asset and Days is very lucky to have him.

I voted for all the DiMeras!! They are what makes this show dynamic and compelling to watch. James Scott as Ej is the most talented actor in my opinion he puts in his heart and soul into his character. Lexie Carver as the doctor and Stefano as the veteran. The DiMeras these days are the most entertaining on this show.

It’s been so good seeing Renee Jones off the shelf and back on my TV screen fairly regularly. That woman needs her own storyline. James Scott and Joe Mascolo are both fantastic (which goes without saying, in my humble opinion). A trifecta of amazing talent. 🙂

James Scott is the best actor on Days. His performances are always top notch. He makes you want to watch a certain scene over and over. I watch DAYS because of James and the Dimeras. Give us EJAMI battling Stefano and Kate and that will be emmy worthy.

James Scott’s EJ and Matthew Ashford’s Jack are the two best characters “Days” has ever seen, in my opinion. I believe that in both cases, the actors gave those roles much more than was originally intended, and the characters became huge thanks to brilliant performances. I would be very happy to see Matthew Ashford back opposite Melissa Reeves again, by the way.

darnell

yes Matt Ashford was great too…but still think James Scott is the best by far…until James, i”d have to say Matt was my fav!

Jodie
Guest

I totally agree with you, Ej and Jack played by Scott and Ashford are some of the best characters this show had thanks above all to their performers. Complex, multi-layered, played with lot’s of subtext..can be bad and good, between antihero and villain (well the early years for Jack/Matt after that they quite mess up the character but Asford managed to still make Jack enjoyable above all because of his acting talent charisma and great comedic timing). However Jack was much better written than Ej because the writing was talented in early 90’s..but Scott thanks to his talent manages to… Read more »

To each his own i think Gering is the weakest actor on this show. All his emotional scenes did no anything for me..actually it was quite laughable (and i am an actress..) He also lacks of screen-presence and chemistry with his acting partners..it is lame and pretty weak..but good for him if he has his fans, even the worst of us have to be liked..lol..his “acting” we call that “hair model acting”..the guy should give his place to someone who can act and has presence..ah well anyway in every soaps you have bad and dull actors..it is for this reason… Read more »

Best Overall Perfomer – JAMES SCOTT!!! He is just amazing and hott!
Favorite Veteran Performer – JOE MASCOLO! Love the Dimera men!!!

Favorite Doctor – DANIEL! He is the lifesaver of Salem! He saved more lives in the past 2 years than all the other doctors combined. Bo, Victor, Philip, Theo, Kate, Chloe, Melanie, EJ, Stefano and he was there to help Stephanie and Maggie…. Without him half the characters would be dead. Lol!

James Scott by far is the best actor Days has had on the screen in a long time! He takes me to Salem and I see and feel what EJ is going through because of his unrequited love for Samantha Brady. He now is a father first and foremost and wants to be with his children. Sami Brady is being horrible keeping him from them. I think Lexie is a wonderful, caring doctor. Joe Mascolo is my favorite veteran actor. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a DiMera Day!

Cady McClain IN As DAYS Jennifer Temporarily Replacing Melissa Reeves

Rumors that have been swirling are confirmed true.  Cady McClain is coming to Salem and Days of our Lives to replace Melissa Reeves temporarily as the new Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  The casting news was confirmed by a Days spokesperson, according to Soap Opera Digest.

Daytime fans recall, Cady is a two-time Daytime Emmy winner and has previously appeared as Dixie on All My Children, Rosanna on As the World Turns and Kelly on The Young and the Restless.  McClain has already begun filming as Jennifer.

Reeves, who commutes from Nashville to Los Angeles to tape episodes of Days of our Lives, decided not to return to set when the NBC soap opera resumed production earlier this month due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,

In addition, Melissa became a grandmother last month with her daughter Emily’s first child, and now soon will welcome her son Larry’s first child later this month, which is another reason Reeves chose to stay put in Tennessee.

So, what do you think of the Jennifer switcheroo? Excited to see what Cady brings to the role? Comment below.

‘Knots Landing’s’ Beloved Kevin Dobson Dead at 77

Knots Landing longtime fan favorite, Kevin Dobson (Mack McKenzie) has passed away at the age of 77.  The actor’s death was first reported by the United Veterans Council of San Joaquin County’s Facebook page.  Dobson died on Sunday, September 6th via “medical complications”.

However, The Hollywood Reporter had more clarity and reported that Dobson died Sunday evening in a hospital in Stockton, California, after struggling with an autoimmune deficiency. Arthur Toretzk, Dobson’s rep, shared that with the entertainment news outlet.

The post via Facebook read: “Army Veteran, Veterans Rights Activist, Film and Television Actor Kevin Dobson has passed away. He was 77 Years Old. Condolences to the entire family. Rest In Peace… March 18 1943-September 6 2020.'”   Dobson was the former chairman of the organization.

During his career in primetime, Kevin was also widely known for his work on the crime show, Kojak from 1973 to 1978, playing Detective Bobby Crocker working alongside Telly Savalas.   Earlier in his TV career he appeared on: The Mod SquadEmergency! and Cannon.

When Don Murray’s exited Knots Landing in 1982, Dobson was cast in the role of M. Patrick (“Mack”) McKenzie, the love interest for Michele Lee’s Karen.  Lee and Dobson became an undeniable favorite duo of the CBS primetime soap opera and for all-time in soap history.  During his run on ‘Knot’s from its fourth season to its conclusion in 1993, Dobson won five Soap Opera Digest Awards for his performances.

Photo: JPI

In addition, Dobson got his start in daytime soaps, and eventually wound back on them following the ending of ‘Knots’.  He first appeared on NBC’s The Doctors. In 2008, DAYS hired him to play Mickey Horton after two other actors did not work out replacing, the original Mickey,  John Clarke, who retired, In shorter stints, Kevin played Governor Harrison Brooks on One Life to Live in 2003. and Judge Devin Owens on The Bold and the Beautiful in 2006.

He is survived by his wife Susan and his three children, Sean Dobson, Patrick Dobson and Mariah Dobson.

Marci Miller Opens Up About Her Decision to Return to DAYS and Her Concerns Replacing Kate Mansi

This week will mark the return of Marci Miller in the role of Abigail Deveraux DiMera on Days of our Lives.

The popular actress, who had been nominated for two Daytime Emmys in the Lead Actress category during her initial run on the NBC soap opera, revealed some of the complex emotions she had in determining whether or not to come back to Salem as detailed in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now.

Once again, Miller is taking over the role from her predecessor, Kate Mansi.  As DAYS fans know. Mansi won a Daytime Emmy for her work as Outstanding Supporting Actress in 2017 and first played the role from 2011-2016, then Miller took over the role.  Abigail’s last arc was played by Mansi when she returned from 2018- to the first part of 2020.  Miller had stepped away from the role in 2018 as she wanted to concentrate on other projects.

Photo: JPI

In regards to her comeback, Miller shared with SOD: “You never know how discombobulating it might be.  That was one of the things I had to weigh in coming back, was whether or not it was fair to the fans for me to accept (the offer) because Kate hadn’t been there for a very long stint. For them to do this flip-flop thing was a little bit of a concern of mine.”

Miller ultimately says she felt that it was better to have Abigail on the canvas, than not in all, and in the hands of an actress who was familiar with the role than a new actress to take over the part.

Make sure to check out SOD for more on Marci’s decision to return to the NBC soap opera.

Meanwhile, look for an exciting story ahead for Miller when Abigail gets back in action in Salem.

So, what do you think of Marci’s careful thought-process to coming home to DAYS? Comment below.
