When Ted Corday and Betty Corday watched “Days of our Lives’” NBC debut on November 8, 1965, they couldn’t have known that the soap opera they created would garner so much success. Now, 48 years later, the show not only is coming off of an Outstanding Drama Series win from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, it’s comprised of a talented and close-knit cast who all have very special memories regarding their time with the popular show. Soap Opera Network spoke with a few said castmembers, and in celebration of the show’s 48th anniversary, they were all too happy to share some of their favorite moments from the early days and beyond!

“There always seems to be something different each year. I can always find something new and different, maybe because we have different writing teams and different executive producers, but they always seem to add some different, unique layer to the character as he unfolds. So there isn’t any one memory or storyline I love in particular. I love each and every adventure as I’m taking it, as they come, and I really mean that. Some ask me, ‘What’s your favorite storyline?’ and I say, ‘The one I’m in, because I’m still trying to figure it out.’”
