Fans of the show should be aware…we’ve heard through his daughter that though Drake Hogestyn (John) and his family are safe, the actor wouldn’t make it today due to evacuating his home because of the Woolsey fire in southern California. Lauren Koslow was at the event and left after the morning due to the wildfires. We felt fortunate that most of the cast and the fans were at the event because you could see the smoke in the air near to the venue. After the interviews, the stars gathered on the stage and did a Q&A with the fans. Mary Beth Evans stood up and gave a touching speech about Peggy McCay and Frank Parker, and then on the big screen, everyone watched a touching tribute to the characters, Caroline and Shawn Sr. There wasn’t a dry eye to be seen.

Below, Kristyn Burtt says hello to the Days fans as she awaits the actors to make their grand entrance. There was an issue with the carpet on the stage so there was a delay.
