The Hayeses share their insights on the Secrets of Soap Opera Lovers website in short videos, to which they add clips from their time on DAYS. And both Doug and Julie remain integral parts of life in Salem. Susan mused of filming:

The show is produced five days a week and they used to shoot day-for-day, but now they shoot eight episodes in five days. Bill and I have been working about four to seven times a month, which is plenty right now.

She added:

It’s been hard work for many years, but we still love it. We’re proud to be producing a quality product as the matriarch and patriarch of the show.
