Diva of Days of our Lives correspondents Cheri Henry and Carrie Garfield interview actress Lauren Koslow who portrays Kate Roberts and James Read who plays Clyde on the show.
Lauren Koslow, star of the hit daytime drama, "Days of Our Lives," discusses her wildly popular character, Kate Roberts, her love of animals, fashion, and David Bowie.
Lauren has been playing Kate, the character everyone loves to hate or just plain loves, since 1996. Currently, Kate is involved in a front-and-center storyline with arch-nemesis and "frenemy," Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney). Her loyal fans are buzzing all about it on social media.
Rob Anthony Dire, host of RAD1Radio, also talks with Ms. Koslow about her love of animals, their mutual admiration of rock icon, David Bowie, and her take on the future of the Daytime Emmy Awards.
Tonight, join Soaps in Depth executive editor Richard M. Simms as he chats with DAYS OF OUR LIVES star Lauren Koslow! Find out how she and co-star Galen Gering first discovered their alter egos -- Rafe and Kate -- were going to be paired, and what their reaction was! Plus, we'll discuss everything from how she navigates the sometimes tricky world known as Twitter to how changes behind the scenes impact what you see unfold in Salem!
Lauren Koslow has been making waves as the crafty Kate Roberts since 1996, but she didn't begin as an actress. The second of three children studied art at University of Massachusetts, then transferred to Virginia Tech, where she obtained a degree in costume design. After graduating, she worked as a costumer/actress for a regional summer-stock theatrical company and soon segued into acting full-time, winning roles in local productions, such as Dial M for Murder and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
In the early 1980s, she moved to California, eventually landing a role in the Rick Springfield (ex-Noah, GENERAL HOSPITAL) movie Hard to Hold. Soon after, she joined Y&R. A year after leaving that show, she joined up with Y&R's sister show, B&B, where she remained until 1992 (and made a guest appearance last year).
During her four-year break from soaps, she continued to act, guest-starring on SILK STALKINGS (in 1993) and THE NANNY (in 1994). When she returned to daytime as Kate, she had the unenviable task of being a recast for Deborah Adair, but it didn't take Koslow too long to win over fans and critics. In 2000, she received a SOAP OPERA DIGEST Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress.
Lauren Alice Koslow (born March 9, 1953) is a long-time American dramatic actress, best known for her long running portrayal of Kate Roberts on the NBC dramatic serial Days of our Lives, which she has played continuously since 1996. She previously appeared in the soaps The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless.
Through the early 1990s Koslow busied herself with guest starring roles in several primetime television series including Silk Stalkings and The Nanny. However, she was lured back to daytime in 1996 in order to replace actress Deborah Adair who left the NBC soap Days of our Lives to, ironically, spend more time with her family.
In the role of vindictive call girl turned corporate executive Kate Roberts, Koslow flourished on Days of our Lives quickly becoming a woman fans 'love to hate'. The character is known for her wickedness and deception, specifically her ongoing war with fellow Salem resident Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney), the former ex-fiance of Kate's son Austin (Austin Peck) and ex-fiance/current ex-wife of her son Lucas (Bryan Dattilo), and numerous affairs and romantic entanglements. Other notable character conflicts include Kate's mysterious past with series villain Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo), her rocky marriage with mogul Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston), and her rivalries with crazed socialite Vivian Alamain (Louise Sorel) and Nicole Walker DiMera. Kate is the mother of Lucas Horton, Rex Brady, Cassie Brady, Philip Kiriakis, Billie Reed, and Austin Reed.
Her alter egos have taken scandalous photos, given Sally Spectra a run for her money and gone head to head with the likes of Stefano DiMera. Yet it turns out daytime’s vixenish villainess is portrayed by one of the coolest, funniest ladies you’re ever likely to chat with. Tonight, join Soaps In Depth executive editor Richard M. Simms as he spends a little time with DAYS OF OUR LIVES’ Lauren Koslow (Kate), getting answers on everything from the secret of Kate’s humanity to the truth about the blue streak both ladies share!
