DAYS Cast on "Leeza!" Christmas 1997...

Because the holidays are coming up, I was hunting through YouTube for Christmas-related Days material, and I stumbled upon this! I forgot all about the "Days" cast being on Leeza for Christmas in 1997 -- this is the first time I've seen it since it aired!

Leeza was obviously a huge Days fan, as she had the entire cast on numerous time in the 90's.

Just thought I'd share...

In this clip, Drake Hogestyn shares a story about a holiday tradition that has become a big deal in his family each year. It's rather cute, and hysterical when Joe Mascolo (in that deep Stefano-like voice) goes, "Awwwww!"

Here, Leeza asks Eileen Davidson what it's like to play multiple characters (Kristen/Susan/Mary Moira/etc.), and Eileen actually whips out her Susan Banks teeth and puts them in for the audience to see! I wonder if she still has them? LoL Ahhh, seeing her with the rest of the Days cast makes me all misty-eyed. Eileen looks gorgeous here!

In this clip, Leeza interviews faux-Jack and Jennifer (Stephanie Cameron and Steve Wilder) about what it was like to film his first scene together (the love scene in the shower). Then, she interviews Jensen Ackles and asks him what his first few months on the show have been like. Following that, the Days stars grab a mistletoe and share kisses with fans in the audience.

In this clip, Leeza plays a bit of "Days Trivia" with the audience. She also interviews Tanya Boyd, and it's quite interesting to hear her without the Celeste accent... so strange! LoL James Reynolds and Jamie Lyn Bauer (ex-Laure Horton) are also interviewed.

In this clip, Leeza takes Joe Mascolo backstage to surprise a fan who's dying to meet him.

In this clip, Louise Sorel (ex-Vivian Alamain) prepares dishes from the Days cookbook for Leeza.

In this clip, a fan asks Drake Hogestyn to do his famous "eyebrow." Also, Bryan Dattilo gets help decorating his new house for the holidays.

Finally, Leeza goes behind-the-scenes at Days with costume designer, Richard Bloore as he details the upcoming Christmas fashions on the show. Then to close the show, the Days cast sings "We Wish You A Merry Christmas." Rather cute!

I would give my left arm to have Eileen back with the cast of DAYS. :(

That was neat, thanks!

I never want to hear Tanya Boyd speak in her "normal" voice again. It's just too weird.

OMG, I had no idea her voice was so different in real life! :o

I remember this and still have it on tape somewhere.

Leeza was really a big fan of Days and I loved when she had them on. She hosted the SOD awards with Drake too I believe. My favorite parts of this was Joe's mocking of Drake and the food fight that seemed to break out during commercial after Louise made that torte. :lol: Eileen was great too. Too bad she had to leave early on. She probably was exhausted :lol:
