Jason47's Tribute: Suzanne Rogers Celebrates 40 Years as Maggie on "Days of Our Lives"
Suzanne Rogers joined the "Days of Our Lives" family exactly 40 years ago this Saturday, July 13, 1973. On that day, she auditioned for the role of farmgirl Maggie Simmons, a young woman whose parents were killed in a car crash. Maggie was also injured in that car crash and had to use crutches to walk. She got the job and taped her first episode # 1946 on July 18, 1973. "Days" was in the process of being preempted a record 20 times due to the Watergate Senate hearings, and so her debut episode did not air until much later than planned, on August 20, 1973. Over the course of the next four decades, Maggie survived an amnesiac husband (who was already married), a bout with alcoholism, the adoption of baby Melissa, the surrogacy of baby Sarah, the death of her long-time love Mickey, a new-found son (Daniel) and romance with a very unexpected Salemite (Victor). Rogers, meanwhile, won a Daytime Emmy (the first-ever in the supporting actress category), had to leave "Days" for a year while she dealt with the effects of her battle with myasthenia gravis (which was eventually written into the storyline) and the loss of her job for a few months when everyone in Salem started being killed off in 2003. Congratulations, Suzanne, on 40 years as Maggie. May you enjoy continued success and many more years of "Days!"

And if she auditioned for a role, taped her first episode, and had it preempted for 20 episodes today, she wouldn't show up on our screens for a year and a half. It's really mind blowing that they worked so fast back then.
Thanks for posting, Jason!

Lovely tribute! I haven't cared for Maggie's stories lately but she is an integral part of the Days canvas. For most of the time that I've been watching she doesn't have a lot to do besides be a sounding board and plot agent for other people's romances but she and Julie are the only real connection we have to the Horton past. I wanted a storyline for Suzanne, and then we got all the Melanie & Magic & Egg Baby stuff, and I felt like the Monkey's Paw bit me in the ass. I'd rather see her with Sarah or Melissa than Taniel, I tend to enjoy her more these days when she's around Hortons. Hopefully they can find better stuff for her to do, though I sincerely doubt it :(
Anyway, thanks for the tribute Jason!
