HomeTVDays of Our LivesSuzanne Rogers “I Still Can’t Believe I’m Working So Much!” Luke Kerr September 25, 2009 9 Comments Days of Our Lives’ Suzanne Rogers talks with the Suds Report about her return to the supporting front burner. Who was the most surprised that Suzanne Rogers has returned to the supporting front burner? The Emmy winner herself! She tells Suds, “I still can’t believe I’m working so much! Gary Tomlin has really turned around the show. When I first came on DAYS, we weren’t making a lot of money, but we had great story, and I have to say that is the feeling right now.” So will Rogers put herself up for Supporting consideration for next year’s Emmys? “I don’t know,” muses the Salem matriarch. “I have some good material, I think. However, I’m the kind of person that thinks once you’ve won it’s time to allow someone else to win, you know?” But listen if the producers put me up, I’ll be honoured. If they don’t, I will not submit my name.” Spoken like a true team player. As for why she still resonates with viewers after all these years, Rogers maintains, “She’s a sassier version of Alice Horton! She can give the kids the hard truth!” When Suds mentioned that Rogers has single-handedly made Molly Burnett a better actor, she couldn’t disagree with us! “I think so, too! We have some wonderful scenes together. Maggie is the voice of reason!” For more details check out the Suds Report.

Suzanne proved to a younger audience that she has terrific acting chops during the Salem Stalker story. Now if only Higley could give Suzanne quality material like that.

Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott September 26, 2009 Suzanne Rogers is gold and it’s about damn time they started using her! Log in to Reply naughtytomato September 26, 2009 A ‘sassier Alice Horton’ is a good description. She inherits the matriarch roll. I like to see all age ranges on the show and have the cast interact with one another outside of the couples pairing. Log in to Reply TV Gord September 26, 2009 I don’t watch Days and I don’t know this actress, BUT I LOVE THIS STORY!!! Log in to Reply Mike Jubinville September 26, 2009 She’s the crown jewel of Days! Log in to Reply AlistairCrane September 26, 2009 I remember being amazed that Maggie got so much airtime during the Salem Stalker story. I knew she was being killed off, but she had been window dressing for so long that it didn’t bother me. Then she did that fantastic episode where she invites the killer in. That did it for me. I loved Maggie from that point on. Log in to Reply Nathang1983 September 25, 2009 I agree Alistair. Why can’t they just jettison her altogether? Isn’t Gary Tomlin running the show anyway?
