Deidre Hall Leaving Days

Deidre joined Days of Our Lives in 1976 as Dr. Marlena Evans. During an interview, Deidre said that she thought that she would have no chance to land the role of Marlena, considering that she was unsure about a career in soap operas, as well as having to compete against established soap opera veterans for the role. She was cast, though, and the role made her rose to fame. It was was proved by fan protests when a 1979 NBC promo hinted that Deidre’s character would be killed off.  Two separate daytime television magazines named Deidre the best soap actress of 1983.
