Check out Michael Fairman's new interview with the man of the hour, Days of Our Lives' Peter Reckell. With his soap experiencing a creative renaissance, as well as a ratings surge, Reckell talks to Fairmain about his Emmy nomination, parenthood, Ed Scott and of course the return of Bo's "princess" Carly Manning (Crystal Chappell). I haven't been this psyched for a triangle since Jax/Brenda/Sonny on General Hospital! Mvid courtesy of shelleCR!
Michael Fairman:Now, the news comes that Crystal Chappell is heading back to “DAYS” as Dr. Carly Manning. I spoke to her recently, and she told me she is looking forward to working with you again. Obviously, this will be major story for Bo!
Peter Reckell: Yeah. They told me she was coming back, and I was floored, because last I knew she was in New York working. I knew Guiding Light got cancelled. It has been awhile since I had a major story. I had that short storyline last year with the material that I submitted for the Emmys, but I have been used recently to just support other people’s storylines. They told me Crystal was coming back, and I was like, “Oh, that means I am going to be busy!” I had gotten into being a real-life dad. With acting it has sort of been… I go to the studio…do what I’ve got to do, which I love, but I have been being a dad. It’s going to be exciting because Crystal is an astounding actress!
