No! Not Marlena!

The New York Post is reporting that the producers of the long-running soap opera ‘Days of Our Lives’ have fired two of the shows biggest stars, Drake Hogestyn (John Black) and Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans) in an effort to cut back on the budget.

NBC has released the following statement on the decision:

“Days of Our Lives’ has decided to rest the characters of John Black and Dr. Marlena Evans. After a year of separation, John and Marlena will finally reunite before exiting the canvas in early 2009.”

Hall began her stint as Dr. Marlena Evans in 1976 on Days of Our Lives. She left the role in 1987 to focus on the NBC primetime drama, Our House, which aired until 1988. She came back to DOOL in 1991. She is the only actress to play the role of Marlena.

Hogestyn joined the show in 1984.  Days of Our Lives is the only daytime drama currently airing on NBC.
