BIGGEST WASTE OF TALENT|
DEIDRE HALL (MARLENA, DAYS OF OUR LIVES)
It seems almost absurd that in a year where Deidre Hall's Marlena dominated the screen for the first five months we could say her talent went to waste, but it did. The powerhouse actress, who masterfully propelled the serial killer story, was rudderless by June, when the "victims" were revealed to be alive. We're all for giving actors a break, but she could have one from five days a week to three, rather than three days a month. Highly anticipated scenes, like the reunion between John and Marlena, and Marlena's reaction to finding out she really didn't murder her pals, were given short shrift. Now, she's marooned in a castle with the other dead-agains and is working as much as Christopher Gerse (Will). Judging by the ratings decline and the letters to Digest, fans are none too pleased. Paging Dr. Evans. Stat!
