Days of Our Lives Spotlight: What Happened To Julie Olsen Williams (Susan Seaforth Hayes) On DOOL?
Julie’s life has been a bit crazy even since she was young. She was pretty rebellious as a teenager and when her parents moved to Europe, Julie moved in with her grandparents who are Tom and Alice Horton. Julie married Doug Williams back in the 70’s after a long and confusing relationship. Doug had to move away from Salem because of his business troubles.
Julie had a very tough time when he was away. She was badly burnt and when she has reconstructive surgery, so that Doug wouldn’t leave her, it failed.
