Deidre Hall has for long been one of daytime television’s most beloved actresses winning.

Santa Monica resident Deidre Hall recently celebrated her 4000th episode as a lead actor on the long-running TV soap opera, "Days of Our Lives."

Hall portrays Dr. Marlena Evans, a role she began in 1976, and has since established a loyal fan base.

Known for popular storylines such as possession, evil twin (playing opposite her real life twin, Andrea Gangler), and most recently playing a pivotal role in Chandler Massey’s Emmy Award winning coming-out story line as Marlena’s grandson.

“The greatest accomplishment in show business is longevity and the highest praise is to be invited back," said Hall. "I am honored and flattered to have received over 4000 invitations in my life, and I feel humbled to be recognized for job I feel so passionate about.”
