Some actors and actresses remain forever associated with one memorable role that outshines all others; that is particularly true of beautiful and glamorous Deidre Hall, better known as Dr. Marlena Evans on the NBC daytime soap opera Days of Our Lives -- a part that Hall held for years. A native of Milwaukee, WI, Hall was born in the autumn of 1947 as an identical twin, and raised by her parents (a postal worker father and a high-school secretary mother) in Lake Worth, FL. She experienced her first brush with fame by vying for -- and winning -- the title of Junior Orange Bowl Queen at age 12, and subsequently attended a local junior college before moving to Los Angeles and kick-starting a modeling and acting career. Hall made her first several dramatic appearances as a television guest star, on episodes of such programs as Adam-12 and The Streets of San Francisco, then landed the lead role of ElectraWoman on the Saturday-morning children's program ElectraWoman and DynaGirl.It was Days, however, that brought Hall her broadest recognition; producers enlisted her to play Evans in 1976, and she remained with the program until 1987, when she temporarily withdrew from the part to focus all of her attentions on a much different prime-time role: Jesse Witherspoon, a widow raising several children with the assist of her lovable and slightly cantankerous father-in-law (Wilford Brimley), on the Sunday-night family-oriented drama Our House. That series lasted two seasons, and in the years that followed, Hall focused her energies solely on prime-time work, in telemovies such as Take My Daughters, Please (1988) and Perry Mason: The Case of the All-Star Assassin (1989). By 1991, however, Hall opted to re-join Days of Our Lives with a much-publicized return of Dr. Marlena Evans, and remained with the iconic series over the ensuing decades.Off-camera, Hall made headlines as the mother of two children born to a surrogate, experiences dramatized for viewers when she played herself in the ABC made-for-television feature Never Say Never: The Deidre Hall Story (1995). Hall received numerous laurels over the years for her acting work, including Soap Opera Digest awards and multiple Emmy nominations.
