Omg I just finished watching johns death from 2007 and read a comment that Deidre Hall cried on the DAYS soundstage for 30 mins alone after they wrapped those death scenes...is that true? Can anyone confirm?
I think that's true. I think I remember reading an interview around that time about them not acting, and crying real tears. They really thought he was gone from the show since he was fired. There was a certain finality about it, and he had expressed his dissatifaction for his lack of airtime for the year 2007. He spent the first few month in a coma, coming out of it only to read some ancient love letters. He even said that that would be his "final mission"...


I just saw Deidre Hall's final scene from 1987... Just so sad and heartbreaking. What a truly amazing actress she is!

Okay, this is going to be a random question but... how old was Megan Hathaway exactly while she was on the show? I'm asking because from what I understand she went to school with both Hope and Bo and Hope had turned 18 during that time period. And I think Bo may be older or younger than her.

She truly is. And I miss the days when she was given screen time (let alone material) to show that. John's death proved how truly brilliant she is. I loved her choices, and I was afraid they'd choose a direction where it became about hysteria (*cough*Sami*cough*)... because Deidre hates doing the BIG scenes, with the screaming and crying. She thinks they should be kept to a minimum for effect (she said something beautiful about Kristian's scene during the Zach death that also pointed that out, and I wish I'd written it down). I'm so glad they let her choose to underplay it. It fit Marlena so well, it fit John and Marlena so well... and if he had truly been dead and gone... it would have been a beautifully done death... even if it was stupid to kill him off in the first place.

It was in the SOD Interview celebrating them after they were fired.

"When it was over, I couldn't stop weeping, so I cried for about a half an hour after we wrapped. I just stood onstage and watched him say goodbye to people and wept. It was terrible and unspeakably painful. I was so distraught. That's when people finally got it that is is not a joke; this is a good-bye."

Jason47's page is a treasure trove of Deidre and Drake interviews. If you go to the link below and scroll down to the article October 29, 2007: "Blackout" by Stephanie Sloane, it talks about Deidre's reaction to taping those death scenes.

It's an amazing scene. It's weird to me that they did almost a straight copy of it in 1987 as a prelude for Emma's murder. Jane Windsor was darn good at lighting people up, but she had nothing on Philece Sampler's delivery.

It's risky to upload full episodes. Those are usually the accounts that gets suspended.

Thanks Matt. January 10, 1984 was one of only 3 episodes I had never had a chance to see, so I got to watch this for the first time this weekend and confirm if any changes were needed to the script's cast/set list, but none were needed. Now, there are just two more episodes (both from February 1984) that I hope will be uploaded soon, to see if they match the script's cast/set lists (which sometime differ if there is a last-minute change). Then, I will have seen every episode from 1/1/84-present!!
