Deidre Hall (Marlena) and Drake Hogestyn (John) open up to Digest about their return in the issue on sale now. "We are going back to the good old DAYS OF OUR LIVES 2.0," enthuses Hall. "It's the end of buried alive and cloning people and 'Who's the daddy?' It's the end of all of that and into the old era of love stories and romance and family values and tradition and real-life drama. I can't wait. I haven't seen the show over the last two years, so I don't know where they've gone, but I've heard from people that it's changed quite a bit. But we are back. We are back with a passion." Adds Hogestyn, "To me, it's like DAYS OF OUR LIVES is going to raise the curtain on a new era on September 26 and I'm sure the audience is going to be taken back and they're going to be reminded of how powerful those romantic and intriguing and suspenseful stories were. And that's what we promise to bring to the table." For the full story, be sure to pick up a new issue.
