Loyal DOOL and John and Marlena (Drake Hogestyn and Deidre Hall) fans campaigned to get the duo back on canvas, and give their boudoir a new look by sending in a new set of linens to the studio. Problem is, Days set design department used the set of linens to make up the bed used in a scene for long lost lovers, Kayla and Steve!
The fans who sent the sheets in were insulted and let the show know! Production Designer, Dan Olexiewicz admits, "When items are particularly attractive, we like to find other ways to incorporate them. Certainly, no disrespect was meant. The comforter being used again is actually a compliment to the buyers on selecting such a visually enhancing item!" Let's hope that the fans who sent in the lovely item feel better about their purchase!
For those of you not watching, John hasn't been seen on canvas since February 24th. Marlena has had little airtime, however fan email is pouring in asking us when John (Drake Hogestyn) is set to return to the show! Co-Executive Producer, Stephen Wyman says that "John Black is an important character and the audience has not seen the last of him. Patience."
Drake returned to work Friday March 23rd and will be seen on canvas at April's end, as Soaps.com reported a month back!! Here's hoping this makes our 'John' fans happy!!
