‘Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) spoilers find that doppelgangers are par for the course in Salem, but what does that mean for the actors who have to portray two different characters with two different personalities?
Well, other than double the lines to learn, the actor has to be conscious at all times which look-alike they are playing- difficult enough to do in a regular storyline.
But now that Kristen is pretending to be Susan and vice versa, Stacy Haiduk has her work cut out for her. And she is pulling of the double part with aplomb. So much so that whispers of a Daytime Emmy are in the air.
‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Stacy Haiduk is doing double duty as Susan Banks and Kristen DiMera…and she is killing it.
Currently Kristen has managed to convince Susan to switch places with her. Susan is now play-acting as Kristen behind bars and driving newly locked up cell mate, Vivian Alamain (Linda Dano) – who is in on the deception- up the wall.
Kristen, dressed as Susan (teeth and all) is now living with Brady at Marlena Evan’s (Deidre Hall) home. Marlena was kind enough to open her home to Susan and Brady and daughter Rachel are bunking up with his father John Black (Drake Hogestyn) and step-mother, Marlena as he recovers from his gunshot wound. Oh, and Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin) seems to be hanging around there a lot, too.
So far the interactions between Susan/Kristen and Vivian and Kristen/Susan and Chloe have been pretty hilarious with Susan/Kristen failing dismally to portray the cool and calm (by comparison) Kristen and Kristen/Susan holding on by a thread as ‘Susan’ has to watch Brady’s ex wife tend to his wounds, and bond with her daughter! I mean Kristen’s daughter.
Wow, I’m confused…imagine how Stacy feels!
Keep watching Days of Our Lives, weekdays at 1pm ET on NBC and watch this space as the Daytime Emmy nominations for best actress are revealed. If Stacy’s name isn’t on the ballot, we’d be more shocked than Charlie was to see a gun in his face at the end of today’s episode!
