Congrats to Stacy Haiduk (Susan, Days Of Our Lives) who was selected as the performer of the week. Learn more here--->>
Stacy Haiduk always brings the perfect blend of humor and heartwarming to her scenes as Susan Banks. In this past week's shows, Susan tried to save John Black from the Devil. The Devil revealed their plan to have Susan kill John and if she didn’t, they would go after her son, EJ DiMera. Haiduk captured Susan’s fear perfectly; the franticness in a tone of voice and how troubled she looked in her facial expressions. Susan did not want to hurt John, but she especially didn’t want the Devil to go after her son. John tried to convince Susan that the Devil wouldn’t go after EJ, but Susan didn’t want to take any chances. When Steve Johnson finds Susan, she is covered in blood. Stacy Haiduk yet again perfectly showcased just how scared and desperate Susan was to save her son as Susan tried to sacrifice herself in order to spare EJ and John. In the hospital, EJ sees his mother and they have a beautiful moment. Through her pain and fear, Susan is relieved to know her son is okay and EJ is moved at just how much Susan loves him. Susan told EJ that she loves him so much, she’d do anything for him, even vote for a democrat. Stacy Haiduk brilliantly played Susan’s humorous side in this line without taking away from the deep, emotional depth of the scene. Fans laughed and cried during Stacy Haiduk’s performance this past week and look forward to what happens next!
