Legendary actress Deidre Hall was recently interviewed by Jackie Lewis with Bionic Buzz on the red carpet at the 90th Hollywood Christmas Parade in Hollywood, CA.
During the interview, Hall shared with Lewis that someone had just told Hall that she has done 5,000 episodes of Days of our Lives! 5,000! Legendary! Side note: IMDB has Ms. Hall at 5064 episodes (and counting) as of this writing. She has appeared in 4967 episodes at curent. Hall is now the only actor to have done 5,000 episodes of the hit soap opera and the second actor/actress to do 5,000 episodes of any soap opera with Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke, The Bold and the Beautiful) being in the lead.
Hall debuted on the soap opera in 1976 and portrays the iconic Dr. Marlena Evans Black and as most soap fans know she has also periodically moonlighted, pulling double duty as the hilarious Hattie Adams.
Hall is interviewed at approximately 10:27 into the video. Also, there are other daytime stars interviewed including Vernee Watson-Johnson (Stella, General Hospital), Finola Hughes (Anna, General Hospital), Donnell Turner (Curtis, General Hospital), Kate Linder (Esther, The Young & the Restless), and Patrika Darbo (Nancy, Days of Our Lives, The Bold and the Beautiful) among other talented stars!
This year the parade took place on Sunday, November 27. The parade was taped for a two-hour special set to air on December 16 on The CW Network from 8 to 10 p.m. est.
