One thing they will concede is that I'm the only one there who has been there for every single scene of the same character for over 20 years, so I do have a certain place to stand on to have that conversation.

WHAT? I don't even know what she means by this. Do we not count "Stan"? Is she saying that Deidre and Drake's year and a half off means they haven't played consistent characters? Huh?

The reason she has input and no one else does has nothing to do with whatever bogus self-important reason she's making up here.

As always, I can't stand her interviews. I can't even imagine what it's like to work with her, given that it's so excruciating to read about a short conversation with her.
I didn't read that as relating to other actors at all, but to the writers. As in "of all the people creating this character I'm the only one who's been working with her for 20 years," so she has some credibility when it comes to discussing how Sami is supposed to be.

I don't see it as that unreasonable of a comment. Excluding Corday, I don't think there are any producers or writers that have been around as long as Sweeney has. I think if she hadn't said something indicating that she cares about the character's integrity she'd be slammed.

I dunno. The comment kind of works for me. Now whether I agree with her take on Sami is a different issue...
I took it as her saying that she's the only one who has portrayed Sami since she started the character, :hail: so she has more credibility with the writers than actors who play characters who have had multiple actors. Since she's the only one who can say something like that, it makes sense that the writers would bow to her superior knowledge. It's not like she's some hack like Kristian, Dierdre, Suzanne, John... ohhhh... waiiitttt...

I Think what she meant she the only one in last 20 years on same role without break which kinda true

Kristian[hope]started in 1983-1987 and came back for for short time in 1990 and came back in 1994 and have not had break for 19 years but in last few years they bit backbutrn hope for likes rafe/sami/ej so in way it there was break

Deidre Hall[marlena]June 21, 1976 to 1987; 1991 to January 23, 2009 than it been over 2 years break until 2011 becuase they fired her
Drake [john]January 10, 1986 to October 26, 2007 than Drake was fird and brought back
in January 8, 2008 to January 23, 2009 than it been over 2 years break until 2011 becuase they fired him

John Aniston[victor]
1985 to 1997; 1999 to 2004 [contract]; 2004 to Present [recurring]we do not see victor lot for few years like in 2007
John Aniston (Victor Kiriakis) 8

Suzanne Rogers[maggie]
1974 to 1984; 1985 to November 2003 was fired and than came back in 2004 to Present we do not see maggie lot for few years

Bryan Dattilo[lucas]
1993 to March 27, 2001 [contract] than fired February 2002 to July 2002 [recurring]; September 2, 2002 to February 18, 2010 than fired June 21, 2010 to June 28, 2010 [recurring]; February 29, 2012 to Present [contract]
