Days of Our Lives' grand dame, Deidre Hall (Marlena), is reflecting on her favorite storylines and moments that have run through the hourglass. She's loved playing Dr. Evans for four decades, and viewers have adored watching her hijinks with arch-enemy Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo) and true love John Black (Drake Hogestyn), among others.

Hall told Soap Opera Digest that, like head honcho Ken Corday, her number-one plot point was the infamous "possession" storyline. She recalled:

It’s always going to be possession. You’ve heard me say that’s going to be on my tombstone. It was the most shocking story. It was the most forward-thinking story. 

She also admitted to being starstruck by TV son Greg Vaughan's good looks. She gushed:

It took me a while to work with him. He is so beautiful that it can become distracting. Good for the audience, hard for his co-stars! I mean, what else can you say about him? You only have to look at him without doing a double take and think, ‘Wait, are you real? You walk in looking like that?'
