Koslow's Crazy for DAYS's Kate
By Janet Di Lauro

When it comes to overly possessive mothers, DAYS OF OUR LIVES's Kate definitely takes the cake. Heck, she takes the whole bakery! Lauren Koslow discusses Kate's recent in-the-name-of-motherly-love plot: poisoning Chloe because she cheated on her son, Lucas, and framing Daniel for the crime. Koslow also answers the question viewers have been wondering about for months: Whatever happened to that marriage proposal from Stefano?

Soap Opera Weekly: It has to be difficult playing such irrational behavior, doesn't it?

Lauren Koslow: It is challenging. I'm not going to say it isn't. It definitely is. But as an actress, I have to commit to it. I have to enjoy that ride. The way I think of it is that every once in a while, Kate just goes too far. And when she goes out there, she just keeps twirling. But she can be reeled back in eventually.

Weekly: How did you go about tackling Kate's current plot against Chloe and Daniel?

Koslow: I do it almost as a revenge fantasy. That's the way I think of it. At some point, it became that way for Kate. She might not be totally in her right mind with everything she's doing right now, but she's doing it. And I wanted her to do it in a way that we could all take the ride with her. So, please, enjoy it. I have, and I have fun with it. It's supposed to be a little larger than life. Look at nighttime. Look at what they were doing on NIP/TUCK. It's some crazy stuff. All the shows, really. Look at DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES. Look at THE SOPRANOS. There's some huge stuff that goes on on all these shows.

Weekly: When you put it that way, DAYS pales by comparison.

Koslow: Right now, we have a little bit of everything on our show. We have stories that are grounded in reality. They're about Mom and Dad and kids and stuff. Then, we have some operatic characters. That's the way I like to think of them. They are bigger than life, and they have bigger-than-life passions. I think we're trying to hit all the bases with [the different stories we're telling].

Weekly: You do get to see a different side of Kate in your scenes with Bryan R. Dattilo (Lucas).

Koslow: I love doing scenes with Bryan. It comes back down to reality with him. These bonds are real. Everyone understands these kinds of family bonds. They might not even be healthy, but they're there. Everyone struggles with this stuff.

Weekly: All of this craziness aside, what ever happened between Kate and Stefano? Is she ever going to give him an answer to his marriage proposal?

Koslow: Well, I could just tease a little bit of that. That might be revisited.

Weekly: It was such a letdown when that story was dropped. And Stefano didn't even come visit Kate when she was in the hospital battling lung cancer, did he?

Koslow: We had discussions about that. You have to imagine a lot of that stuff went on offcamera. Roman, too. You would have thought he would come to see Kate. I definitely think things are going to get complicated, and that we will revisit [Stefano's proposal]. It's definitely going to be interesting, especially where Kate has evolved to now. It's going to be very interesting. Kate's a very different woman from what Victor was used to dealing with. She's a different woman from what Stefano was used to dealing with, too. So there's a lot of stuff there to play.

I can't wait for them to revisit Stefano/Kate. THAT should have been Kate's storyline all this time, instead of this Daniel/Chloe/Lucas dreck.

Awesome! I was always a big fan of Kate and Stefano, and knowing that Vivian is coming back for Kate to deal with (hopefully) there will be an awesome story there.

I am so looking forward this fall and all of these characters. Please don't let me down.

She's such a good sport. LS pretty much said the same thing when asked about all the crazy shit Vivan's done over the years. It's true, when I see an actor totally commit to a story -even if I don't like said story- it makes all the difference.

Kate/Stefano? Dude, how many times are they going to dangle that steak in my face only to yank it away? I'd be interested if were to actually GO somewhere. Maybe Kate will end up saying yes to his proposal if he gets her out of trouble for poisoning Chloe? I mean, if anyone can get her out of that mess, it'd be Stefano.

Thanks for the link!

If Kate hooks up with Stefano I need some kind of...something to explain how she's accepting of the whole Phillip-shot thing. Or how she's really not, and she's out for revenge. Because I would swear the Dimeras ordered a hit on him, and I would think that would make Kate go apeshit.

That aside, I totally agree that it could be interesting and they should pursue a story there.

I think Kate relies how deep revenge can go..kate did what stefano did to her son..try to kill some one from rage.. Kate might see away to forgive stefano, because she did the same thing his out of grief hers out of jealousy both because of family...that's how I see Kate putting aside her hatred of what stefano try to do to her son..that and the noose might be tightening around her neck in the attempted murder of Chloe and the only person who could understand and help her is stefano

weeeee am so happy stefano gonna get a juicy storyline wooooooo :cheer: :dance:

Yeah, let's put Kate together with a guy who tried to murder her son, kept the fact that her granddaughter was still alive a secret for about 18 years, and secretly raised her biological children as science experiments while never informing her of their existence. Oh yeah and who pimped out her services as a prostitute.

This show sucks.

I wouldn't want it to be a pairing based on love. I would want it to be more like a business arrangement or something between Stefano and Kate. Something where they're basically both using each other for their own gains.

I just hate the fact that they never acknowledge all the terrible stuff Stefano has done to Kate and her loved ones. Sure she got ticked off at him for trying to kill Phillip but prior to that she was treating him like he was such a great friend. Kate should despise Stefano.

I agree. I hate how they had Kate angry at Stefano for all of five minutes for trying to have her son killed, but she's spent months trying to KILL a woman just for cheating on her other son. It's ludicrous.
