CBS Soaps In Depth - - Feature Interview -

It might have been 43 years since Adams starred as Belle on THE SE­CRET STORM, but the actress still has fans ap­proach her about the role! “I was in Walmart re­cently — I’m very big in Walmart! — and peo­ple came run­ning up to me, say­ing, ‘Belle! Belle!’ It was in­cred­i­ble!” she mar­vels. Also in­cred­i­ble is that Adams was the one re­spon­si­ble for prompt­ing soaps to hire hair­dressers to be part of their pro­duc­tion teams. “THE SE­CRET STORM was a half-hour taped show, and it was so dif­fer­ent in those days,” she re­calls with a smile. In fact, with­out a hair/ makeup room, Adams took it upon her­self to get her hair done at Saks Fifth Av­enue. “I got this gor­geous dou­ble bun. It was so pretty!” But dif­fi­cult to main­tain. “So,” she con­cludes, “I ac­tu­ally was the one re­spon­si­ble for get­ting hair­dressers on soaps!”
