Deidre Hall’s onscreen return to Days of Our Lives can’t come soon enough. In an interview with We Love Soaps, Hall discusses her return to Salem, her book Deidre Hall’s Kitchen Close-Up and the return to family values at DAYS.
WE LOVE SOAPS TV: When you mention the core value of the old DAYS, which DAYS are you referring to? The show has gone through so many creative transformations from reality based storytelling to supernatural fantasies. Which do you think viewers want to see?
Deidre Hall: It’s family at its core. It’s Alice’s kitchen. It’s multigenerational stories. It’s sitting your kids down and wagging your finger at them. It’s listening to your grandchildren. It’s standing by your husband when he can’t stand for himself. It’s the loyalty, the dedication, and the comfort we are longing for right now. It’s those kinds of values.
Deidre Hall will soon return to Days of Our Lives as Marlena Evans, but before September arrives Hall stopped by Good Day LA. During the July 20 interview, the popular NBC actress chatted about what she’s been doing the past few years, including; getting in shape, traveling with her children and writing a book.
A glowing Hall talked with enthusiasm about returning to Salem, saying “I’m not coming back to the same show. What I’m coming back to is Days of Our Lives 2.0.” She then goes on to talk about the new executive producers and new head writers. Watch the clip after the jump
