Thaao's favorite hoochie, Marianne, in the SOD insider email:
Thaao Penghlis (Tony, DAYS) and fan Marianne Roesch
I had the great pleasure of meeting my favorite actor from DAYS, Thaao Penghlis (Tony)! He was so gracious as to have a private dinner with some of his fans the night before the Juvenile Diabetes DOOL Fan Event. I had been hoping to meet him now for a long time. He has always been so open and appreciative of his fans by doing chats with us several times a year and posting often in his guestbook. He was so charming and welcoming and his fans were treated to a fun evening, complete with Greek dancing! As you can see by my picture, Thaao gives awesome hugs! He and his hugs were the hit of the fan event! I will always remember our first meeting and how sweet and friendly he was to me. I hope to be able to meet with him again sometime in the future.

Hoochie Linda in the SOD insider email:

Wayne Northrop (ex-Alex/Roman, DAYS) and fan Linda Wolfe
One of the most beloved, funniest and most talented actors on DAYS is also one of the most unassuming and genuine people you will ever meet. I had the pleasure of meeting Wayne Northrop [ex-Alex, ex-Roman] at Deidre Hall's [Marlena] fan event in April 2006.... I had written and sent a poem to Deidre and Wayne about their amazing chemistry, just after he returned as Alex back in September, 2005. Since I had not heard anything back, I brought new framed copies for each of them. Wayne looked at it and exclaimed, "Oh! I have this! I love this poem! I set it aside to thank you, but never got around to it." He looked at me and asked, "YOU wrote this?" We talked briefly and then when he moved on he shook my hand and said, "I am so glad to have met you." I would love to be able to thank him for being the kind of celebrity, who, when you meet him, you are not disappointed!
