Days’ Deidre Hall Skype Interview about her star on the Walk of Fame and 40 years on NBC
Nobody breaks into your house and carries it off!
Deidre Hall received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Thursday May 19 in a ceremony which was live-streamed exclusively by Hollywood Chamber of Commerce at 6201 Hollywood Boulevard in front of Eastown. Helping Emcee of the Hollywood Walk of Fame and President/CEO of the Hollywood Chamber Leron Gubler to unveil the star was actress Susan Seaforth Hayes. “Soap opera fans are going to be thrilled that their favorite star will be honored on the Walk of Fame,” said Gubler. “Deidre’s long career on television is proof she is a huge fan favorite and we welcome her to Hollywood Boulevard.”
Hall talks about the process to receive a star from handing in an application to how it felt standing there when the star was unveiled. The actress talks about luck having something to do with being in television for 40 odd years, and how honoring and surprising it felt “to get this special nod.” She tells Soaps.com’s Hollie Deese that she and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie Williams, “Days”) are best friends, which is partially why Hayes spoke at the ceremony. The actress goes on to detail one of the most fun storylines she has played to date on “Days of our Lives” that doesn’t get a lot of recognition, but that did involve her real-life sister, Andrea Hall.
