An iconic character in the world of soap operas will be making a return, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog. The character, who debuted in 1976, is Dr. Marlena Evans, played by Deidre Hall.
Hall is slated to revive Evans on "Days of Our Lives," with her return set for Sept. 26. Evans was a psychiatrist at Bayview Sanitarium and was subject to plot twists such as an evil twin sister, possession by the devil and hysterical amnesia, according to SoapCentral.com.
Fans were upset when Hall was dropped from the NBC soap in 2009 because of budget cuts, with the actress reportedly earning $60,000 per month at the time, EW.com reports.
