...somebody say, “Hey Cord,” it’s always a big compliment to me. People have good memories.”

Adrian Bellini (Miguel, Passions)Adrian Bellini (Miguel, Passions)

“It’s a Hispanic name and me being Hispanic I really try and bring a Latin spice to the role.”

Alexa Havins (Babe, AMC)

“The name Babe means to me; feisty, strong, independent! She’s now a woman and I can say that.  At first you hear the name Babe and kind of a negative thought comes to mind, but in real life it’s actually my mother’s nickname for me.  She calls me Babe. To me it’s a term of endearment, too. It’s Crystal’s term of endearment for Babe, too. (As for the character), her real name is Babe, and I thought this is a lot of pressure, you gotta be a Babe!

Days of our Lives: A day of days event is truly an experience

Days of our Lives stars walk the red carpet giving the fans everything they ever dreamed of. The annual Day of Days recently held at Universal City Walk in Universal City, California; brings fans from across the country and even the globe to meet their favorite star. And what makes this event special is that it is not one star, but the whole cast.

The day begins in the morning and ends late afternoon with a special treat of the next episode that did not yet air that is shown to the fans on a big Trinitron screen. I must point out that that is also a press day with many reporters from different publications and outlets in the media.

The event is not only a day for the fans, but the stars as well. Deidre Hall (Marlena) said that every year she looks forward to the event. "I do. I love this. Just look around. It is phenomenal," she said. "To see people like this all gathered is great. It is hard to describe unless you are here."
