Where's Vivian's Sugar Daddy?
So since everything DAYS is going to be in a 1990s time warp this fall with the returns of Carly, Lawrence and Vivian Alamain…why not bring back Vivian’s wealthy husband/butler, Ivan? I would trade the sleep-inducing triangle of Chad/Mia/Will any day for a few scenes with Ivan. He could bring some much needed humor back to DAYS; and frankly how can Vivian Alamain survive without her trusted manservant? Surely he can’t rate too high a paycheck to break the bank.
A few fun facts about Ivan G’vera (Ivan Marais, DAYS):
The Czech actor was on DAYS from 1992 to 1999. At age 18, he fled Czechoslovakia during the Cold War for the United States. He was nominated for the "Outstanding Scene Stealer" Soap Opera Digest Award in 1998. Now, he is a naturalized citizen of the United States. He is slated to appear in the movie, TERMINATOR SALVATION (May 2009) as General Losenko. Previous to that some of his latest credits were HUSBAND FOR HIRE (USA movie, 2008) and CASINO ROYALE (2006).
Also, if you haven’t checked them out already, Louise Sorel has given two great interviews. First, a podcast with BUZZWORTHY RADIO which is worth listening to. She is quite a funny lady and a good storyteller once she has her morning cup of coffee. Also, an interview with SOAPS.COM where she mentions a website breaking the early news that she would be back (hmm...wonder who she was talking about?)
And since we’re bringing back 1990s DAYS stars, there were three others that were prominent during that time. What were their names again? Oh, yes…Drake Hogestyn, Deidre Hall and Thaao Penghlis. Hey, why not bring them back too?
