So I was reading through some old issues of Afternoon TV earlier, and I was reading an article introducing the cast of "Return to Peyton Place" that was about to debut. Anyway, in the article, I came across a VERY interesting DAYS tidbit that I'm not sure I ever knew before concerning actress Mary K. Wells (Hannah Cord on RTPP, previously Louise Capice on Edge of Night)...

"Originally offered the lead on 'Days of our Lives' opposite Macdonald Carey, Mary turned it down because she couldn't 'take the children out of school,' but to this day Mary says, 'I guess I love Betty Corday (ex-producer of 'Days of our Lives') better than anybody in this business."

Mary was based on the East Coast at the time of DAYS premiere and had children in school and didn't want to uproot them until she moved back West for RTPP in 1972.
