DC #562: Stacy Haiduk Interview

On today’s episode of Daytime Confidential Luke, Jamey and Jillian are joined by former The Young and the Restless breakout star-turned Days of our Lives newcomer Stacy Haiduk.

In the interview, Haiduk talks about being let go from Y&R, being snubbed by the Daytime Emmys, trying to balance Patty’s insanity and with her humanity, whether-or-not Tracey Bregman’s doppelganger storyline undermined the Patty and Emily story, sharing scenes with Peter Bergman and Doug Davidson and what it was like to work with that leading man of leading men, Mr. Kitty.

We then discuss how Days of our Lives managed to snap Haiduk up, her Salem role as the Warden and Jamey tries to find out if her character might end up being Kristen Blake DiMera as he Wishfully Cast.

All this and more in this must-hear episode of Daytime Confidential.

    Stacy is a wonderful performer and will be missed.

    Not to mention a fabulous lady. I got to meet her at the Y&R fan event last August and divine doesn’t begin to describe her kids…

    Gosh, the old “there’s no more story left” excuse is soooo weak!! As I have said a MILLION times before, any GOOD writer should ALWAYS be able to come up with new story, even when they feel that they have exhausted all options. There are ALWAYS possibilities!!! It’s the job of a good writer to CREATE the possibilities. God knows that Maria and Paul have managed to “create” stories–no matter how contrived and BORING they are/were—for certain characters/actors like Christel Khalil (Lily) and Clementine Ford (Mac), even though both actresses have VERY limited talents and screen presence!!! It’s just a matter of not WANTING to write for certain actors. It’s a mixture of laziness and stupidity. Get rid of that which feeds you while keeping that which drains your resources—-like these poorly written dead weight actresses!!! Makes a lotta BUSINESS sense, Maria—-NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Stacy is a wonderful actress who is FULL of humility. And her not getting nommed for Lead Actress this year, while Bobbie Eakes (WTF????) got a nod will remain one of the biggest travesties of 2010!!! Wish her better luck elsewhere. They simply used this actress up and spat her out. I find it sad, even though I admit that I was getting tired of Patty and Emily, I will miss Stacy. If the show had hedged their bets more and not pushed the “CRAZY” button so hard that it got STUCK, perhaps they could have done more with the Patty character, or developed the Emily character more. Again, it all comes back to good writing, OR LACK THEREOF!!!

    She is such a hoot to listen to. She sounds like a lot of fun, and I have ALWAYS been a fan of her work, even since her days as Lana Lang on that Superboy TV series in the late 80’s.

    She brings instant credibility to any role she takes, and her intense looks makes it even more enjoyable to watch.

    Can’t wait to see her on DAYS. I am not a huge DAYS viewer, but now I will be :-)

    Thanks for this awesome interview!
