Days of Our Lives' Melissa Reeves (Jennifer Horton) celebrates a special milestone--->>
36 years ago today, a young beauty stepped into daytime in a role that would change her life forever. Melissa Reeves made her debut as Jennifer Horton on Days of Our Lives on October 9, 1985. She quickly became a fan favorite as she was involved in one of the daytime soap's most powerful and loved supercouples, Jack (Matthew Ashford) and Jennifer. She has spent years on the NBC soap opera thrilling daytime fans with her wonderful performance year after year and even earning herself several awards and nominations.
Though it wasn't a straight 36 year run due to her being off the canvas at intervals, there are some good memories. We've been looking back at Reeves' history as Jennifer Horton and boy there are so many good memories. Her outstanding pairing with Jack and their storyline is one. Even to this date, 34 years later Reeves is still a fan favorite and that pairing remains one of the best to have ever graced the daytime screens.
Here we have compiled a few images of her run as Jennifer Horton and we wonder if you remember all these moments - take a look below!
Congratulations Melissa on 36 years and we look forward to more and more of you!
