Random Q: Would it be easy for you to find out who the oldest living DAYS alumnus is?
Eloise Hardt seems to be the oldest verifiable living cast member. She played Rita Beacon for 34 episodes in 1970 and celebrates her 95th birthday on New Year's Day. Some quick research on Hardt shows that she once dated actor Rex Harrison (Oscar winner for My Fair Lady). Also, one of her daughters was killed in 1968, and it is speculated that her death could have been the result of the Charles Manson group of murders. The oldest living contract castmember is Pat Barry, who played Hope's mom, Addie from 1971-1974. Other contract cast members on the list include Joe Campanella, Bill Hayes, Robert Clary, Peggy McCay, Regina Gleason, Joe Mascolo and Corinne Conley. Please note that some of the years of birth will differ from IMDB/Wiki due to the extensive research I've done in the past of each actor's birthday.
