Crystal Chappell Interview with Michael Fairman

MICHAEL: Now you come on to Days of Our Lives on October 2nd. How is it being back there? You have said previously in some tweets, it's not a Bo/Carly redo.

CRYSTAL: I have had a really great time. I have had to dust the cobwebs off. Trying to get back into that format is like riding a bike, but it does come back very quickly. I am grateful for the experience I had "GL" and going back to DAYS. What I like about DAYS right now are the stories they are telling. When I pick up my scripts its good writing and good old fashioned soap story. I am really enjoying them and I am enjoying how it's structured… the old soap hook at the end of the show. As far as Carly goes, I am really enjoying playing her. She is different than she used to be.

MICHAEL: What can we expect from her?

CRYSTAL: She is massively flawed.

MICHAEL: We like you when you play flawed!

CRYSTAL: She is flawed, but innately is a good person. She just makes bad choices sometimes and they get her into not just a little trouble, but a lot of trouble. I like that for a soap character.

MICHAEL: Now the tease is: it's a murder mystery that brings her back into Salem.

CRYSTAL: She has really killed someone, and she needs Bo's help to not only protect herself, but lots of other lives are in serious trouble if she does not get to him and get his help.

MICHAEL: Your husband, Michael Sabatino, also makes a return visit to DAYS.

CRYSTAL: Oh yes, he is as Lawrence. We had scenes together and it's been great… sharing a dressing room… and it's a killer dressing room.

MICHAEL: Are you in Deidre Hall's old dressing room?

CRYSTAL: I actually don't know where that was. I am in the hall. I so don't care. It's a nice place and they treat me very well.

MICHAEL: I spoke with Louise Sorel who is coming back as Carly's old nemesis, Vivian! We all cannot wait to see the sparks fly again between these two.

CRYSTAL: She starts next week. The story… it's good, really good! I am having fun doing it.

MICHAEL: Peter Reckell (Bo) told me on the red carpet at the Daytime Emmys, he was so looking forward to having you back on the show. Can we assume a triangle is in the works?

CRYSTAL: All I know is what we have now. When Carly comes back she is not available to Bo, it's more as an old friend. There has been no sense of anything romantic. Where they go with it, I don't know.

MICHAEL: NBC's promo sort of alluded that it could be a triangle.

CRYSTAL: I saw the promo, and it sort of showed how Carly's return will affect Bo's life.

Same tidbits we got from before. Nothing new here.

And I don't believe for one damn second these writers don't have plans to pair Bo and Carly. Please!

Every bit of this sounds ridiculously exciting. I can't wait until the story finally begins. It sucks that Louise Sorel is returning so long after Crystal though. I thought it was going to be the other way around?

Is this supposed to be Carly & Lawrence? I grabbed the pic from the interview. Larry doesn't look like he has aged as well as Carly.

LOL, that's what I thought . . . huh? That promo didn't show (or tell) me anything.

well right now Hope isn't exactly a very supportive committed wife so if this is where it leads I say go for it. I am looking forward to Carly and especially if shes coming back with some mystery surrounding her and Bo can do something besides grovel at Hope's feet.

I still think Carly is going to accidentally kill Lawrence and that will be what brings Vivian back to Salem to be pitted against Carly...I know a few others had this speculation as well..

Amen!! I don't see what the big deal about Carly's return is?! The bottom line she will come between Bo/Hope. Why can't they put her with someone else??? Leave Bo/Hope alone already.

I'm sure Carly will be involved as a spoiler in the Bo/Hope storyline. However, it seems to me that this will only happen after Justin already has ensconced his way in as well. Bo already resents Justin for his involvement and that is probably only going to get worse. So in a sense Carly is not the only spoiler here.

I am so excited!!!!

I just pray that they don't mishandle this and make Carly into Billie 2.0, using her JUST as a Bo/Hope foil. After Billie's disasterous stints this decade, it really destroyed the character.

this script has already been played out. we have Carly in the Billie role we have Justin in the Patrick role and Hope leaving to run off to her little Island get away. and we have Patrick er I mean Justin telling her to stay with Bo all the while hoping she won't so he can be her hero and they can sleep together. I hope Carly will come back for more then this. but how many times has Corday made promises that somehow just don't come about?.

Intellectually I'm with those who think this will wind up with Carly as a Billie substitute. If the show lasts, it wouldn't surprise me for her and Bo's kid to show up at some point too.

But everytime I read the words "Vivian" and "return" I get super excited. Ridiculously excited. I'm dying to see her back to battle people. I mean- Sami is dead, the actress playing Nicole has injected too much vulnerability, Kate is a psychopath wasting her time on trash- we really need a great villainess. Someone who really owns their inappropriate manipulative behavior.

Can't wait.

Thanks for posting the interview and the picture. Lawrence wasn't quite what I was expecting, maybe it's the lighting or the hair. :shrug:

If Carly and Bo have a longlost kid.All I have to say is Bo sure has some powerful sperm.LOL For that kid to have survived being buried alive.Besides we already did the longlost kid story with Carly.But yeah don't want her to turn into Billie either.
