  1. Kat says:

    Thank you Michael! Loved it! Loved SN and MBE’s excitement, hopefulness and belief in the writing! AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!


  2. Callie says:

    No couple can compare to Steve & Kayla. Best supercouple of all time! I’m thrilled they’ll be back on our screens!

    Thanks so much for interviewing them, Michael!


  3. Cees says:

    Best news ever! Cannot wait to see Steve & Kayla back on my screen. So looking forward to the 50th and my all time favorites Stephen Nichols and Mary Beth Evans.


  4. Lis says:

    Wonderful! So great to see Stephen and Mary Beth together again. And I am officially excited about the story after seeing this. I wasn’t sure what to expect by way of story and the writing given how poorly handled that was during Patch’s previous return years ago but to hear that Stephen and Mary Beth are praising this story and the writing, has me now doing a happy dance. They are the best couple ever on daytime and I can’t wait to see them back onscreen.


  5. Jaime says:

    Love Patch. He is the best bar NONE

    But have yet to hear he is under contract!
    Corday do NOT mess this up.


  6. Kris says:

    So nice to see Stephen and Mary Beth, and to hear their thoughts on how things are currently behind the scenes. The writers are on the floor. The writing’s good. I mean, really?

    It must be better than many of us are used to at the moment because Stephen and Mary Beth don’t usually say a lot if the writing’s substandard, meaning they focus on other things…like how much fun they’re having together or how much fun it is to be with the cast, but they don’t say much else…or if they do talk, their feelings are kinda clear, one way or the other.

    So, the writers must be trying. There must be true effort out there at the moment, and I’m glad. Time will tell if we like the stories, but if there’s some honest enthusiasm, that must mean the writing’s at least decent. I hope.

    On Steve and Kayla…

    I waited for a long time to see if Kayla would get a story on her own. That didn’t happen and I was disappointed. I would have been happy to see her move forward with her life in Steve’s absence.

    Of course, it’s hard to think Kayla would or could be as happy with another fella as she has been with Steve. Granted, they’ve obviously had their struggles during their time in Africa, but that love they shared didn’t just disappear. Here’s hoping whatever’s been wrong can and will be resolved…NOT in a day or two, but in an honest to goodness, solid relationship story, full of twists and turns and stops and starts that make sense.

    Thank you, Michael Fairman, for this interview.

    Thank you, Days, for bringing Stephen back.

    Thank you, Stephen and Mary Beth for still being willing to play these roles so we can see Steve and Kayla together again.


  7. KMB says:

    Though I must confess that I have a weakness for Stefan Cassadine, I will take Stephen Nichols anyway I can get him. He looks sexy as ever! So good to see you Stephen, back in daytime. :)


  8. 4ever DAYS says:

    It’s becoming a reality!!!


  9. Rj says:

    Look forward to having Patch back and some Kayla and Patch! The show needs this!
