Deidre Hall has reigned as one of America’s most beloved actresses since her debut as Dr. Marlena Evans on NBC’s “Days of our Lives.” Since then, she has enjoyed a successful career that spans both daytime and nighttime television, film and theatre.
Hall has compiled an impressive list of awards and nominations. She was named Best Television Role Model; won the prestigious American Women in Radio and Television (AWRT) award in 1994; garnered six Best Actress nominations from Soap Opera Digest, with five wins, as well as three Emmy Award nominations and two nominations as Best Actress in the People’s Choice Awards.
Her primetime credits range from her starring role in the movie “A Reason To Live” with Peter Fonda and Rick Schroder, to her 1986 series “Our House” with Wilford Brimley and Shannen Doherty. It was on this series that she became the first performer ever to star in both daytime and primetime simultaneously.
In August of 2009, Hall and her 16-year-old son, David Sohmer, accompanied Operation Smile on a medical mission to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
“While working with Operation Smile in Brazil, my son David and I witnessed what a team of talented, dedicated medical volunteers can do for these children. You can’t imagine the dramatic changes that are being made in their lives and the joy experienced by their parents. A life-changing surgery, once so out of reach, becomes a reality due to the funding and coordination of Operation Smile,” Hall said of her experience.
