Alison Sweeney (Sami) really feels for fans who have had to sit back and watch their favorite soaps get canceled. She discussed the topic, as well as the fate of Days of Our Lives, during a recent interview with parade.com.
I meet soap fans every day who talk about what a big part of their life it is and how they watched with their mom and their grandma," said Sweeney. "Those characters were a part of their family dynamic for their whole lives in some instances. So I know how hard it is for all those One Life to Live fans right now and how hard it is to say goodbye to something that's been so close to their hearts.
Sweeney hopes Days viewers never have to feel their pain.
"We're just hopeful at Days of Our Lives that we can continue to fight the fight and represent daytime and keep our characters on for as long as we possibly can," shared Sweeney. "We want fans to know that we're still there and we're making the best show we possibly can."
The rest, of course, lays in the hands of the show's network.
"Hopefully, NBC will believe in us and keep us on for a long time," added Sweeney.
