Look for a barrage of special guests on Days of our Lives during the ratings-crucial February Sweeps.
Beginning February 5th, Days of our Lives will trot out no less than ten former soap stars - several of them Emmy winners -- during the coronation of Princess Greta Von Amberg (played by Julianne Morris). The guests include Roscoe Born (ex-Jim Thomasen, All My Children
; ex Nick Rivers, The City
; ex Robert Barr/Quinn Armitage, Santa Barbara), Ian Buchanan (ex-James Warwick, The Bold and the Beautiful
; ex Duke Lavery, General Hospital
), Tyler Christopher (ex-Nikolas Cassadine, GH), Bobbie Eakes (ex-Macy Alexander, B&B), Maeve Kinkead (ex-Vanessa Reardon, Guiding Light
), Dorothy Lyman (ex-Opal Purdy, AMC; ex Bonnie Roberts, B&B), Kathleen Noone (ex-Ellen Chandler, AMC; ex Bette Katzenkazrahi, Sunset Beach
) and John Reilly (ex-Sean Donely, GH; ex Del Douglas, SunB).
Ian Buchanan will play Lord Sheraton. Victoria Wyndham (ex-Rachel Cory, Another World
) was to have played Lady Sheraton, but she reportedly turned down the job offer after learning that the part was a non-speaking role.
In a release from NBC, there's a bit of bad news for the cavalcade of daytime royalty. "Three of them [meet] their death," says the Peacock network.
