Don’t miss Chandler on Will and Sonny dating potential!’s Deanna Barnert caught up with a few stars of your favorite Daytime soap and got the scoop from Lauren Koslow (Kate), Kristian Alfonso (Hope), Chandler Massey (Will), Deidre Hall (Marlena), Bryan Datillo (Lucas), and Galen Gering (Rafe) at the Paley Center’s Evening With Days of our Lives. Warning, there are teasers!

Lauren Koslow:

You’re such a fashionista: Do you have any hard and fast style dos and don’ts?

I love fashion. I started out as a costume designer. I just love clothes and kind of see them as a type of armor. You go to the armory and, do you need light armor tonight? Heavy armor? That’s how it hits me, more. There’s not too many rules. Better than no rules!

Have you ever looked back and regretted your choice of armor?

Definitely! Usually, it has to do with the decade. [laughs] Especially in my youth. I probably wore some things I should have passed on, but it’s okay.

How is Kate handling the single life? Well, she’s not quite single…

We got the divorce papers and she called herself Roberts, today. Yeah! I always liked Kate Roberts. I hated to see it go, but then I got used to DiMera, just like Kate did. I don’t know what’s going to happen. She was in love and happy with where she was. What happened was just a crazy thing. She looks at Ian that way. She told him she still has feelings for Stefano (Joe Mascolo). So I don’t know what’s going on with them, and I think that’s how she feels. She jumped into this thing, but I meant it to the one night it was.

What is it like for Kate having her kids back in town?

I’ve always enjoyed that part of the character, but the way it’s evolved, it’s fantastic. It’s written like they’re adult children. As much as I had fun when I was constantly manipulating their lives as if they were dolts, sometimes that was… I loved doing it, but this is nice for the audience too. The relationship is different. It’s a mature one. She’s just as involved and ferocious about them and wants just as much for them, but they get to be part of it too. She’s bringing them to her side. She wants to have the power, and wants the entire family to have that power. I’m excited about what’s going to happen there.
