Yesterday, we posted at On-Air On-Soaps our brand new feature interview with Days of our Lives newest arrival, former One Life to Live favorite, Melissa Archer.
The fiery redhead is now Salem’s Serena Mason, who comes to town for a multitude of reasons as the story begins to reveal itself. But chief among those reasons is to see if she can rekindle the flame between herself and Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan). Only from the looks of it, she’s got a major roadblock already… Nicole Walker! (Arianne Zucker)
In addition to the chat you read, we also sat down for an on-camera conversation with more of the interview with Melissa where she discusses the difficulties in making a new on-screen love story when there has been no history prior to that played on screen, what it’s like working with Greg Vaughan and Arianne Zucker, how she got the role of Serena on DAYS, and lots of fun moments.
After the video chitchat, Melissa and Michael Fairman went on tour of her new DAYS digs! From Melissa’s dressing room, to an impromptu conversation in the hallway with Arianne Zucker, to chatting about dressing Melissa from DAYS costume designer Richard Bloore, to meeting up with DAYS make-up artist Jeremy in the hair and make-up room, we got our own mini-tour of this former Llanview residents new soap home!
Now after the jump watch our sit-down video interview with Melissa, and then our behind-the-scenes visit at Days of our Lives with her!
