Brunch with the Doc.

Deidre Hall (Marlena, DOOL)
Celebrate Valentine's Day with Three of Daytime's Leading Heartbreakers

Daytime Superstars Deidre Hall, Drake  Hogestyn,  and  Thaao Penghlis will be setting the table and joining their fans for a brunch extravaganza at the Beverly Hilton on February 8th, 2003. The  event, billed as Deidre Hall: 90210, will mark the first time the popular trio have come together for an exclusive visit with fans.

Hall, known to millions as the beautiful and compassionate Dr. Marlena Evans on NBC's Days of our Lives, originated the concept with her first fan "Lunchbreak" almost two decades ago.  "It all began with a letter from a fan who was losing her eyesight.  Her only request before she went completely blind was to meet Marlena in person.  How could anyone say no to that?," Hall recalls fondly.  "We've held an event almost every year since then", but this one she says will be extra special.  "Drake and Thaao are both so handsome and so charming? what more could a girl want?"

Drake Hogestyn (John, DOOL)Drake  Hogestyn,  who  plays Hall's onscreen husband, the heroic John Black,  has been romancing Days viewers for over 16 years.  "That's a great run  in any job, but for an actor, it's incredible", states Hogestyn.  "The wonderful  thing about daytime is that it's still new and challenging ? for my  character  especially!  I think I've had about 43 different careers and past  lives  so  far,  and from what I hear", he laughs, "the 44th is right around the corner".

Thaao Penghlis (Tony, DOOL)Thaao  Penghlis, who recently returned to the daytime drama after a 6-year  absence,  portrays  the  dashing  Count Antony DiMera.  The role he created  in  1981 has also gone through many incarnations, the latest twist being  a  previously  untapped  darker side - the DiMera side.  "Tony is a fabulous  character  to  play;  he's  very  complex.   He's  not a one-note villain,  nor  a  white  knight. He's shades of grey," says Penghlis, "and it's the unknown that makes it such an interesting journey".

Tickets  to  the  Valentine  Brunch  can  be  purchased on Ms. Hall's website at  www.deidrehall.com, or by sending a check or money order for $65.00 (per ticket) to: Tinselvania, PMB 715, 11041 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025

Past Blast

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."
