I'm no authority, but I do remember reading somewhere that he turned down an opportunity on prime time in a pilot with Shelly Long because it conflicted with Days. I was glad he preferred to work on Days than a prime time show. At the time I was glad he was loyal to Days. Just because he, or anyone else, didn't choose to pursue other opportunities, doesn't mean they couldn't have or that they can't find work today.

Deidre doesn't have to work another day in her life, if she doesn't want to. She's not gonna be hard up for a job anytime soon.
Exactly. She can has options outside of Daytime, which cannot really be said for others. Not many soap stars have vital experiences outside of Daytime. Deidre cut back considerably to raise her two boys but her resume inlcudes other things.
As does Drake's, and a lot of other actors who had prime-time gigs 20 and 30 years ago. Some of whom we don't hear much from.
Um, what has Drake done outside of Days since being on Days? Battle of the Network Stars.
Um, he was originally on 7 Brides for 7 Brothers. Remember, I said 20-30 years ago. Besides, he was notable enough to be the basis for the character on Friends, no? ;)
Prior to that, he was starting a baseball career, a totally different career. So, golly, gee............ :shrug:
Drake has been on Days for 22 years, during which he has done no acting outside of that show. Baseball is not acting, and neither is being a joke on Friends.
Regardless, I hope the best for both Deidre and Drake. I know it's a tough market atm.
