Didn’t make it to the annual Day Of DAYS? We’ve got all the highlights for you!
the annual Day Of DAYS fan event at the Universal Citywalk in Los Angeles, CA, came during a week of fire-fueled tragedy for the state of California this year. Blessedly, the air was clear over the event, and most of the DAYS OF OUR LIVES cast was able to meet and greet the legions of viewers who’d come to celebrate the show’s 53rd birthday. In addition to the red-carpet arrivals they were expecting, those gathered were treated to a rare appearance by Paul Telfer (ex-xander), a few words from the soon-to-return Matthew Ashford (Jack) and a first glimpse of the soap’s newest cast member, Thia Megia (Hayley), who said, “It’s such an honor being on one of the longest-running shows on TV.” A group of hearing-impaired fans even experienced a sign- language exchange with Deidre Hall ( Marlena). What else did you miss? Soaps In Depth was there to capture every moment!
DAYS OF OUR LIVES fans did more than see stars!
Kassie Depaiva, with Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) and Suzanne Rogers (Maggie), had been preparing to leave L.A. when she learned of Eve’s pending return. “She comes back with her guns blazing,” the actress hinted, “and determined to take Jennifer down!”For those wondering whether Brady’s ex-wife, Chloe, would help heal his heart, Eric Martsolf previewed, “He does spend some time on himself, which I think is the key to making [a future relationship] work.”
Hall listened proudly as TV granddaughter Olivia Rose Keegan (Claire) told fans about her newly released music, describing it as “pop with a little bit of urban alternative.”
“I think people are very invested in [Patch and Kayla], as Stephen Nichols and I are,” Mary Beth Evans (Kayla) observed, “so to not have him there is weird.”“Rex is a cad, but even in the midst of his actions and words, I’m always working to still make him endearing,” offered Kyle Lowder, who’d clearly won over this fan.
Camila Banus (Gabi), here with Lamon Archey (Eli), was asked repeatedly about her other role on Fox’s STAR. “I’m so grateful that I have my DAYS family,” she acknowledged, “but it’s been like, ‘You get to work with Queen Latifah? What?!?’”
