How the Days of Our Lives Actors Are Like Their Characters
Soap opera characters have always been a little on the outlandish side—wild exaggerations of real life personalities. And some soap actors play a part for so long, their fans can't distinguish between the person and the character.
So at the recent red carpet event Celebrating 45 Years of Days of Our Lives at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, we couldn't help but ask the cast members how they are similar to their characters and how they are different.
See how Alison Sweeney, Ty Treadway, Nadia Bjorlin, Shelley Hennig, Molly Burnett, Galen Gering, Joe Mascolo, and other cast members compared themselves to their on-screen counterparts in this video we shot for the Archive of American Television.
