Catching up with Melissa Archer (ex-Serena, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) at Starstruck’s YesterDAYS Fan Event, November 10th, 2017.
WHAT DID YOU ENJOY THE MOST ABOUT PLAYING “SERENA” ON DAYS OF OUR LIVES?
Melissa: I have to say her clothes. I love her dresses. I took a lot of them. Anyway, they’re really really really pretty. I love them.
IF YOU COULD PLAY ANY OTHER CHARACTER ON DAYS BESIDES “SERENA”, WHO WOULD YOU WANT TO PLAY?
Melissa: I’d like to play Maggie’s daughter. A) I love her; and B) I think we look enough like family. I actually concocted a storyline at some point where I could be the long lost child of Victor and Maggie. Maybe Maggie’s eggs had been frozen and they were stolen; so no one knew. Maggie didn’t even know. I concocted this. I didn’t really share that; but now you know!
WHAT PROJECTS ARE GOING ON FOR YOU RIGHT NOW THAT YOU CAN TELL US ABOUT?
Melissa: I have a movie that just came out that’s on Amazon, Vimeo and iTunes called “Deadly Expose”; and I am doing a show called “Melissa is a Dork” on YouTube. I encourage everyone to watch it; it’s kind of fun. It’s a little bit of all of my quirky dorkiness mixed into it. The shows are really short. Some of them are how-to’s; some of them are highly tech and some of them are not tech at all. It’s fun
WHAT MESSAGE DO YOU HAVE FOR YOUR FANS WHO HAVE FOLLOWED YOU THROUGHOUT YOUR ACTING CAREER?
Melissa: Thank you. Without you guys, I would be absolutely nothing. So thank you so much for everything you guys have done. It has been an incredible time with all of you; and I look forward to bringing you guys on the ride for the rest!
