David Michaels, SVP of Daytime Emmy Awards shared, "I’ve been star-struck by the dynamic duo of Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth Hayes for decades. The scope of their work across the television, film and stage landscape is amazing. Their continuing roles of almost 50 years on ‘Days of our Lives’, where they also met and married, is a daytime story like no other!" Congratulations to the Hayes' on a well-deserved honor!
