Deidre: (her least favourite storyline on Days Of Our Lives) I did the first crib death. I wasn't that skilled as an actress. I wasn't comfortable with unrestrained emotion on camera. (The writers) decided to let Marlena walk in and find the baby. It was hugely difficult and hugely frightening. I spoke to doctors who had counselled people through that experience. The stories were horrific of the human response. I felt lost and scared, and unprepared to do those scenes.
