If you feel nostalgic as we all get ready for the emotional 50th anniversary of the iconic soap opera that is Days of our Lives in November, look no further than TV Insider’s postings of Salem stalwart Melissa Reeves favorite moments through the years as Jennifer Rose Horton.
Hand-picked by Reeves, she named three standouts, including a scene of the first time Jack and Jennifer make love back in 1990. Melissa related about what made this scene so special: “One day, Matt Ashford showed up at Days and shook up my world just like Jack did Jennifer’s. He was so different and funny as Jack, so human. He wasn’t afraid to play that flawed, broken man. He didn’t need to be the macho man, the leading man, he was just this fun, nerdy guy but also a really handsome guy and the fans loved him and related to him. They could tell that Jack truly loved Jennifer, in his weird way. When I first started working with Matt I was, like, ‘Wow. What is this? Well, this is sure going to be different!’ It was like being on a roller coaster only I wasn’t hanging on for dear life. I was throwing my arms in the air!”
Melissa also chose the hanging of the Horton family Christmas tree ornaments back in 1986 and touched on the very personal relationship she had with the late Frances Reid (Alice) and MacDonald Carey (Tom), and another beautiful moment with another all-time favorite love interest, Frankie Brady played by Billy Warlock back in 1987.
