Days of Our Lives Actors React to Their Daytime Emmy Nominations. (Updated!)
Our sister site, Soaps.com, caught up with a few of this year’s Daytime Emmy nominees, Darin Brooks and Blake Berris. Both performers were nominated in the Outstanding Younger Actor for their work last year, in particular their scenes dealing with the late and not-so-nice, Trent Robbins (Roscoe Born).
Blake Berris (Nick Fallon) spoke of his shock at the news. “Rachel [Melvin] (Chelsea Brady) actually called me and told me [about the nomination]. I was making eggs and I knew it was the day, so when I saw Rachel’s number, my stomach kinda dropped because I knew she would probably have news, good or bad. Then she told me and I think screamed some profanities and then ran around my house like a crazy person,” he said. For more of what he had to say, click here.
Darin Brooks (Max Brady) was also nominated in the same category last year, but with Days in such a strong position at this year’s competition, there’s plenty to be excited about. “Well we’ll see what happens! I’m just super stoked for the whole show! Hell, 13 nominations this year total!!!” he said enthusiastically. You can read more of what he had to say here.
For her part, Rachel Melvin (Chelsea Brady) had these kind words to say about her co-stars, “I’m very excited about all the nominations our show received. I was very happy for Blake especially. He’s a close friend of mine and I have a great respect for his talent. I thought he should have been nominated last year so I was glad he got the recognition this year. It’s also great to hear about Tamara and Peter, and of course Darin again. I think the coolest part is that the show itself earned a nom. I know that it’s been a long time since it has and to have that happen the year I’m leaving… I’m just glad I get to be a part of such a great honor.” You can read more of what Rachel had to say here.
