Suzanne Rogers (Maggie Horton, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) -- November 9th, 2013
OUTTAKES: Why do you think DAYS has been on the air for almost 50 years?
SR: I think it’s the storylines. It’s the writing. And it’s about family units. I think that everyone who watches the show pretty much can relate to that. We have for years had a lot of romances. A lot of supercouples. A lot of fun things. I think that we do things that the audience wants to see. They want to be connected and feel like they’re part of the show.
OUTTAKES: What has been your favorite storyline as Maggie?
SR: I loved the red shoes storyline which was a long time ago. But the most recent storyline with John Aniston has been just great. We never had one of those names like “Magic”…and now all of a sudden, the fans gave us this name; and that’s been fun for me. I love it!
OUTTAKES: You and John Aniston have such fun chemistry together. Now Victor’s in hot water big time.
SR: You know he is!
OUTTAKES: We’re seeing some of Victor Kiriakis, the villain, coming back.
SR: There you go! But you know Maggie will whip him back into shape.
OUTTAKES: What do you think it is about Victor and Maggie that the fans just love? What is it about you two that is so popular?
SR: Maggie was just a very sweet character that was married to a lawyer and was kind of in the background. All of a sudden, when he [Mickey] passed away, she had to pull up her boot straps and move on. She ran a business; and she didn’t need anything. All of his [Victor’s] wives were needy. They wanted him for his money, for his name, for his this, for his that. And she kind of didn’t. I think that’s what attracted him to her; and I think that’s what attracted her to him.
