Eileen Davidson – the recipient of Soap Hub’s Performer of the Week honors – proved that you can go home again with her scene-stealing guest stint on DAYS.
Eileen Davidson – Performer of the Week
Davidson’s alter ego – slinky, sexy, Kristen DiMera – had but one mission: tempt John Black (Drake Hogestyn) into betraying his marriage vows….and boy did she ever try!
Davidson used her body to great affect; a seductive hip wiggle here, a gentle caress there. But when that tactile approach didn’t prove sufficient, her Kristen resorted to stimulating John’s memory.
Did he remember their first meeting, all those years ago? Did he remember how he’d seen off a whole gang of street urchins, and how she’d tended to his wounds?
Surely he couldn’t forget how they’d overcome her being Stefano DiMera’s daughter, and the machinations of her betrothed, “Tony” DiMera’s (Thaao Penghlis).And how about the first time that they made love? Did John remember that night?
Thanks to flashbacks, fans of DAYS were treated to the scorching hot scene. Actors Drake Hogestyn and Davidson were soaked to the bone thanks to the storm raging in fictional Salem – but the undeniable heat being generated between them, between John and Kristen, provided warmth enough.
In the end, John managed to remain true to his beloved Doc – much to the Devil’s chagrin. It promised that it wasn’t finished with John, and that it would be back. Here’s hoping the divine Eileen Davidson tags along.
Honorable Mention: Cameron Johnson
It’s rare to see Cameron Johnson step into the limelight, but step into it he did. When Theo put Chanel Dupree (Raven Bowens) on blast for allowing her, “damn selfishness,” destroy their family, Johnson brought the necessary fire and the requisite pain that was lurking just beneath Theo’s anger.
