Long before on-demand streaming and binge watching, Americans clamored to appointment television programs. And few broadcast television engagements have forced fans in front of the screen like NBC’s Days of Our Lives.
The soap opera, one of the longest-running on the globe, has seen millions fall for the sublimely over-the-top characters as they engage in the kind of hijinks that have paved the way for modern melodramas everywhere. (The fights! The deaths — and comebacks! The love triangles!)
Now, everyone’s favorite characters from the charming town of Salem are bringing the drama to H-Town for Days of Our Lives in Houston, an exclusive meet-and-greet at Memorial City Mall on Saturday, August 10.
Stars scheduled to appear include Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans Black), Drake Hogestyn (John Black), Lauren Koslow (Kate Roberts), Lamon Archey (Eli Grant), Matt Ashford (Jack Deveraux), Camila Banus (Gabi Hernandez), Linsey Godfrey (Sarah Horton), Melissa Reeves (Jennifer Horton), Sal Stowers (Lani Price), and Paul Telfer (Xander Kiriakis).
The free event offers fans of the show to interact with the actors and score priceless selfies and autographs. For added fun, the event promises a trivia challenge and other games.
Days quickly became known for the innovative storylines, which later (and often weirdly) turned to the supernatural. The fictional Horton, Brady, and DiMera families have become fixtures in the soap universe; the show has become an Emmy juggernaut. Here's hoping the visit spurs an award-winning Houston-centric story arc soon.
Meet the cast of Days of Our Lives on Saturday, August 10 from noon to 4 pm at Memorial City Mall; 303 Memorial City Dr. Event will take place adjacent to Xfinity Fireplace near the ice skating rink. Find more information online.
