Renee Dumond (Stephano’s original daughter)

The Friday she got murdered was my first experience with absolute panic for a soap character.

Complete opposite here, lol. I couldn’t stand Renee and didn’t miss her. But Days also gave me two of my favorite characters on soaps, Tony and Anna and still my favorite soap couple as well.

Other favorites were Nicole, Kayla, Patch, Sonny and Will, Maggie and Stefano. Going way back were Neil, Liz, Melisssa and Pete.

My Favorite Characters of all time are:
1.) Bo
2.) Hope
3.) Brady
4.) Shawn (Brandon Beemer)
5.) Stefano
6.) Steve
7.) John
8.) Chad

*Steve and Kayla
Bo and Hope
Doug and Julie
Don Craig with Marlena
Eugene and Calliope

And newbies- Eli and Lani, Jake and Gabi

*Note: Since Steve and Kayla are not getting ANY PLAY, they conduct Zoom sessions to keep in touch with fans. One recent interview showed Steve’s deep talent as he jokingly took on the voice and persona of a country bumpkin.
All I can say is “What in the world is Days doing squandering such a gifted actor’s talents?”

Seems like for some reason, unfortunately on this forum, folks don’t respond vigorously to comments about Steve and Kayla. I guess it’s because the younger viewers never saw the heyday of Steve and Kayla. And… they certainly don’t see them now!

The only airtime Steve and Kayla really got recently was all about investigating Snyder. After that, they aren’t seen at all. It’s pathetic how Ron writes for everyone else. Hogan Shaffer had a huge crush on Mary Beth Evans and used to really write for her and Stephen. I thought he was a really good writer for them. Too bad he’s no longer around, RIP and they fired him.

Yes, it’s so unfair that apparently a popularity contest is what determines which actors get storylines.

I feel embarrassed for MaryBeth when she tries to butter up Ron, to no avail. It seems like the more gracious she is with her comments about the show, the more he ignores Steve and her.

I’ll pick some long forgotten characters from the past: Frankie Brady, Savannah Wilder, Ivy Jannings, Jillian Forrester, Pete Jannings and Nick Corelli.

Interesting picks;your choices helped viewers to make a trip down memory lane!

Those characters where on when I started watching. I think they could make good use of Frankie Brady now. Another Brady and his story doesn’t have to revolve around Jennifer anymore. Eve could work well with him although I would prefer the original Eve.
