Welcome to our page
dedicated to the
First Super Couple of Soaps,
Doug and Julie Williams

This page is dedicated to our favorite Daytime Couple of all time, Doug and Julie Williams, played by the real life super couple, Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth Hayes. From the moment they met to the third time at the altar, their love has burned strong and bright, a fact made so much more so because the love we saw on the show was a glowing reflection of the real love they have shared for almost 46 years! From the "Look of Love" that shines in their eyes when they gaze at each other to the songs of love sung to the "Most Beautiful Girl in the World", Doug and Julie will always be the ideal Super couple, in real life and in the reel life of Salem in the Days of Our Lives! Our wish is that someday, that love will burn bright again on the daytime screen in the town of Salem!

Thank you for visiting and come back real soon!
Lana and Della

Thanks for the banner, KathyJB16

42 years and the love only grows stronger!

Day of Days 2016!

Watch the interview here.

Susan is mentioned on "10 Best Days Actresses" on Fame 10!

One of the longest-running actresses on soap operas today, Susan made her DOOL debut in 1968. As a super couple trail blazer, Julie Williams might be best known for her love affair with Doug Williams and her mother-daughter relationship with Hope, her half-sister. Seaforth has not only snagged multiple accolades for her portrayal of Williams over the past four decades including four Daytime Emmy nods in the Lead Actress category in 1975, 1976, 1978 and 1979.
The ultimate ‘prize’ was her real-life love affair with Bill Hayes (DOOL’S Doug Williams). The two got married in 1974 and have enjoyed a successful 42 plus years as husband and wife.

It's that time of year again!

According to Serial Scoop, what makes Doug's and Julie's story more special is knowing actors Bill and Susan Hayes have been in love just as long as their on-screen counterparts, with one of the strongest marriages in Hollywood.

Exciting News!

The Bill Hayes Prize in Musical Theater was recently presented to Kayla Wilkens (pictured above with Bill) during the NATS Musical Theater Competition in Chicago. Thanks to everyone who helped endow the fund that underwrites the prize! Bill and Susan attended the convention and had a great time. They got to celebrate his remarkable career and they got to hear a lot of wonderful singing and meet a bunch of fabulous voice teachers.

Bill and Susan Hayes' niece, Joanne Hayes Bozeman, and her husband, Ken, (shown above) started the exciting project that honored Bill as the fine singer and all-round performer and gentleman that he is. They are both voice teachers and singers, and teach at Lawrence University in Appleton, WI. They are members of a very large and influential organization, the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) that sponsors both a classical and a musical theater singing competition.

We're happy to report that The Bill Hayes Fund was fully endowed at the end of 2016, now at just under $15,000!

We are very excited to help celebrate this fine man’s career. Bill isn’t really one to “toot his own horn” and at this stage of his long life, it’s time.

We hear there is a sequel to Trumpet in the works called Jubilee!
Watch for it!

The writers on Soap Opera Digest named their all-time favorite soap stories and this was one of them. Why are we not surprised!

The 50th Anniversary book has been published!! Book signings took our favorite couple to Barnes & Noble (Los Angeles), Changing Hands-Scottsdale, AZ, Tattered Cover-Aspen Grove, CO, Barnes & Noble (Kansas City), FoxTale Book Shoppe, Woodstock, GA (The Elm Street Cultural Arts Village and City Center Auditorium), Bethesda, MD Barnes & Noble.

A short, but wonderful, interview from Bill and Susan during a recent appearance!! Click here!

Congratulations, Susan!

She becomes the first "Days" actor in history to celebrate 45 years on the show! Susan made her "Days" debut on December 11, 1968 and 14 months later, in February 1970, met the love of her life, Bill Hayes (Doug). Doug & Julie's love has lasted even longer than their own! It's a shame the producers and writers don't expand on that fact! Please visit http://www.jason47.com/ for a special tribute to Susan's 45 years in Salem!

Hilarious Episode

The Book Club and their marijuana-spiked doughnuts was priceless! If you missed it, you can see it on YouTube. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XpJecKVGcqs) There should be more fun like this and Julie should definitely be a regular, along with Doug!

Watch Susan gave Suzanne a lovely tribute
in celebration of her 40 years on Days!

This Just In!

We Love Soaps.net has ranked 50 Greatest Soap Couples:
#2 Doug & Julie From DAYS OF OUR LIVES!
COUPLE: Doug Williams & Julie Olson
RANK: 2 (Well, of course if it were up to us, they would be #1!!!!)
PLAYED BY: Doug: Bill Hayes
Julie: Susan Seaforth Hayes
YEARS: 1970-present (with some years off starting in 1984)


Doug was a con artist who met Bill Horton in prison in 1970. When Doug was released, he came to Salem to find Susan Martin (Denise Alexander), a widow with money Bill had spoken about. Susan ended up hiring Doug to come between Scott Banning and his girlfriend, Julie. Doug and Julie had an instant rapport. Doug took a job as a singer at Sergio's and fell for Julie. Doug's real identity was orphan Brent Douglas and this helped him for a bond with Julie's mother, Addie Horton Olson (Patricia Barry). After a fight with Julie over her son, David, Doug went to Addie's and she proposed to him. He accepted and the two of them were married. In 1974 they had a daughter together, Hope. After surviving leukemia, Addie died after being struck by a car pushing Hope's carriage out of the way just in time to save her daughter. Eventually, Julie, who had married and divorced Bob Anderson, reunited and the two of them married in a beautiful ceremony in 1976.

Over the next few years, Doug and Julie would face many obstacles including the loss of Doug's Place (formerly Sergio's), Julie's rape and eventual trial for the murder of her rapist, and Julie being disfigured in a fire on Maggie's farm. The latter led her to divorce Doug but the two of them remarried in 1981 after Doug ended his marriage to Lee DuMonde. The following years saw the couple deal with titanium deposits, a grown up and rebellious Hope, and another divorce and remarriage! In the past decade Doug was "murdered" by the Salem Stalker but, like the other victims turned up alive. In 2016, they are still happy and together.

The couples in the countdown all shared chemistry but there was something extra special about the Doug and Julie dynamic. Fans would find out later, Hayes and Seaforth had actually fallen in love and married in real life.

The couple was featured on the cover of TIME magazine in the January 12, 1976 issue, a first for daytime soap opera. Popular industry magazine, Daytime TV, wrote about the cover: "It was almost inevitable that when TIME was looking for the actor and actress who personified the power of the daytime serials, it just had to choose Bill and Susan." The magazine also called them "Daytime's First Royal Couple."

Bill Hayes explained further in a 2009 Mental Floss feature: "In 1974, Susan and I got married in my living room with 16 people. In 1976, when Doug and Julie got married, we had 16 million people."

The actors' personal story and the long wait for Doug and Julie to finally marry brought DAYS OF OUR LIVES and Daytime much publicity in the 1970s. When Doug and Julie finally married for the first time, women all over America threw wedding parties that day to celebrate. DAYS also maintained a 30 Nielsen ratings share through 1976.

The foundation of Doug and Julie's love story was crafted by Bill Bell, one of his many contributions to the countdown.

Bill Hayes was nominated for two Emmy Awards, in 1975 and 1976. He won a Soapy Award as Outstanding Actor in 1977, the same year Susan Seaforth Hayes was voted Outstanding Actress. Susan was nominated for Emmys four times from 1975 to 1979.

From Patrick Erwin (A THOUSAND OTHER WORLDS): Daytime's answer to great silver screen couples. Doug and Julie's story played out like a matinee movie, grand but seldom over the top. The fact that Bill and Susan Hayes were falling in love along with Doug and Julie made it all the more believable.

Bill and Susan are gorgeous, they're sexy, and SO in love! Their acting lights up the screen! A storyline for their characters would add so much class to this show...don't you agree? We need to keep our Horton family core on the screen.

Diva Interview with Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie of DAYS) discussing their books, the Frances Reid Memorial, and more!

Bill and Susan were on hand for WVPT's 25th Anniversary and Grand Opening of their new home in the new Morgantown Event Center! Watch their comical congratulations to WVPT below!

Read Susan's review of
The Musical Magic of Hayes and Hyman!

These two gentlemen of music first worked together in the nineteen fifties on variety shows and recordings. Dick has been a very top pianist of the jazz scene in America and internationally for decades; with literally thousands of recordings and concerts to his credit. He is also married to a wonderful lady named Julia who happens to be a sculptor in stone. Together they are the quintessence of talent, polish, experience and charm.

Bill and Dick put their show together by E-mail and telephone, exchanging ideas for months and trying to downplay the fun they were having. Their producer Bob Turoff of the Golden Apple Dinner Theatre in Sarasota, Florida, gave them free rein to create, and added a few golf jokes when they began rehearsals in Florida. Dick lives twenty minutes away from the theater and we were eager as ever to work in our favorite town. Mr. Turoff built an arching keyboard with a ribbon of lights to frame the stage where a glossy black Yamaha grand sat in splendor before a glimmering curtain. Two potted palms stage left and right, two silver-haired artists in tuxedos and you have the picture.

Bill composed special material for the New Year Theme which they opened with, as the audience, very intimately seated around them on the thrust stage settled down to listen. But not for long. Almost every time Bill offered a popular old song, the customers joined in. Dick had stories to tell of the origin of such famous recordings as "Mack the Knife", (on which he played and whistled) and played spellbinding piano solos. I especially loved the music he composed in tribute to Bix Biberbeck a 1920's musician. The tunes were positively haunting. Bill did his smashing rock and roll medley. One night Julian Bond was in the house, yes the great civil rights hero, that Bond, and had to tell us how much he loved it. He invited Bill to come to his lecture on the roots of rock and roll. And we did!

Bill tap danced, sang ballads and surprises "I don't want her, you can have her, she's too fat for me," and Dick got laughs with the golf jokes. In the second act, the ladies of the first row, got to be twirled around by my darling to some Shakespeare ditties, a cluster of hopeful songs including "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". Then Dick performed his fabulous be-bop rendering of "How High the Moon" and they closed the show with Bill's gorgeous Soliloquy from Carousel, always so heartfelt. One night his real boy Bill, William Foster Hayes IV, was at a table close with all our children. The encore was, of course, "Side by Side", with Billy at the keyboard and Dick singing full out. On many nights family and friends joined us, I made the opening announcements a few times and the air was heavy with gmitlich for all the shows. As we always do, Hayes and Hyman met the audience in the lobby afterwards to say thank you for coming and snap a few pictures of special friends. Don't you wish you had been there? (Do we ever!!)

After the first rehearsal, I heard Bob Turoff say to his wife Roberta, "I never want to forget this moment, these guys are so professional, so wonderful." And you know what? Bob was right!

From her home in California, still enjoying the glow,

Susan Hayes
Wife and Fan

Thank you, Susan, for the terrific review!!

What the critics said:

"Once-in-a-lifetime experience.. "

" One of the most entertaining shows ever seen in the area. "

"The Hayes and Hyman show at Sarasota's Golden Apple Dinner Theatre should be preserved on Biography on A&E."

- Kim Cool, Venice Gondolier

Featured two of the most renowned performers of our time, song stylist Bill Hayes who has sold over four million records with The Ballad of Davy Crockett and is also the long-time star of TV's Days of Our Lives along with iconic jazz pianist Dick Hyman, creator of over 100 albums, winner of seven Most Valuable Player Awards from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, scorer of over 15 Woody Allen movies as well as "Moonstruck", "Billy Bathgate", "Two Weeks Notice" and many others created an evening of magical musical moments.

Four Decades of Doug: A Tribute to Bill Hayes

Jason has done it again!! This is a wonderful tribute to Bill and all his charisma which has added to making his character so compelling on Days as well as throughout his career! Enjoy!

"After high school, Hayes was training to be a fighter pilot and about to go overseas when World War II ended in 1945. After the war, Hayes finished his schooling and graduated from DePauw University in 1947. In the summer of 1947, his younger brother Phil had a singing audition scheduled, but on the day of the audition, Phil had laryngitis. So, Bill decided to take his brother's place and did the audition himself. He was hired on the spot, thanks to his good singing voice (and thanks to his brother's laryngitis)! Throughout the next 23 years, Hayes would become a household name. He was a featured singer for many years on "Your Show of Shows" and appeared in tons of Broadway musicals and plays. In 1955, he sang "The Ballad of Davy Crockett." The song became a # 1 hit on the music charts for five weeks from March-April 1955."

"On February 5, 1970, Bill Hayes taped his first episode of "Days of Our Lives." He was playing the role of Brent Douglas, a con man who ended up sharing a prison cell with Bill Horton. The episode aired on February 18, 1970. Originally hired for just a few weeks to be Bill's cellmate, "Days" quickly signed Hayes to a contract a month later. In the storyline, Brent was released from prison and hired by Susan Martin to break up Julie Olson and Scott Banning. He started using the alias Doug Williams and, instead of just breaking up Julie and Scott, he also fell in love with Julie. Through many trials and tribulations, Doug and Julie were finally married on October 1, 1976. Although they would get divorced several times over the next few decades, Doug and Julie were always true soulmates, and they married for good in Switzerland in 1993."

"While Doug was romancing Julie on "Days", Bill was romancing Julie's portrayer, Susan Seaforth, in real life. Bill and Susan were married on October 12, 1974, and their characters were married less than two years later on-screen. The Hayes' celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary in October, 2009. In January 2010, Bill appeared in his 2,000th episode of "Days", joining a select few to have done so throughout the history of the show. Here's to many more years of happiness to both Bill & Susan and Doug & Julie!"

More Fun...

Thanks to WeLoveSoapsTV editor Damon L. Jacobs for the following wonderful interview with Bill and Susan!

They also have a new fan in my niece, who had the best time with them, as you can see!

Thanks Bill and Susan, as always a fantastic visit!

Bet you also didn't know that in 1964,
along with actors John Payne, Victor Jory, and Colleen Gray,
Susan testified before the United States Congress as part of "Project Prayer",
arguing in favor of Constitutional amendment allowing school prayer.



As "Days" celebrates its 43rd anniversary, take a look back at a special tribute to original character Julie Olson Williams and her 40-year portrayor, Susan Seaforth Hayes. Susan was the fourth actress to play Julie, and she debuted on "Days" on December 11, 1968. Check out this special tribute to Julie and her long-time portrayor, Susan Seaforth Hayes, at http://www.jason47.com.

In celebration of Susan Seaforth Hayes' 40th anniversary with "Days of Our Lives", Susan's debut script from 1968 is now available for the first time ever online! Susan taped her first episode exactly 40 years ago (December 3, 1968). The episode aired on December 11, 1968. See how Julie was re-introduced to the show, after being gone from Salem for over ten months. Plus take a look at the special pictorial tribute to the four Julies (Charla Doherty, Kathy Dunn, Cathy Ferrar and Susan Seaforth Hayes). The first half of Susan's debut episode is up now. The second half will be added later this week. All that and more at at http://www.jason47.com.

Be sure to check it out! Jason's done a beautiful job!


Tell us about your book, Like Sands Through the Hourglass

"People are surprised that I am as candid and as funny as I am in the book and by how much my husband and I love each other. How that flows through it so completely. Strangers that don't know either one of us have read it and been very surprised. And people that have known about the Doug and Julie relationship are delighted with the book and aghast at the backstage stuff in it, because I put it all in! I couldn't think of any lines better than the truth. Bill Bell is all over the book. He had to be because he was all over our lives. If there was one fairy godfather coming down from heaven to do something for Susan, it was probably Bill Bell. He cast me, then he cast Bill Hayes and then he pulled my mother out of the bullpen of potential writers and said 'I believe you have talent. Let me train you.' Then he cast me in Y&R when Days fired me and gave me love and continued to be a friend to the three most important people in my life."

What's coming up next for you?

"My husband and I are writing another book, a period piece. My editor asked me to go on and keep writing because she said 'I think you have another career' which was more flattering then anything else she could say. I would say that it is a quarter written. My husband and I were just in London doing some research. In London, there is a theater library museum. It is not in London but just outside. You have to go through security then you get to go in and because we were published, we got to go in. You have to send down for it and then an hour later a big red box arrived, heavy with tape around it and you open it up and it's filled with playbills from 1795, 1803, 1807. I was like 'do I need to put on some gloves, and can I take a picture?' then they weigh the box before they give it to you and they weigh it again, to make sure you didn't take anything. My husband and I didn't get up or drink any water for hours! We were there for 7 ˝ hours. I was researching this period so I knew many of the actors names and then to read the good reviews for them."

To do list?

"I would love to live overseas. The proximity of the history and the level of awareness of all cultures are very interesting to me. On the subway, a young African American man looked at our jackets, which just happened to be Days of Our Lives jackets and said, 'you are very big in South Africa' and I said 'we are going there next March' and he replied, 'I am from there and it is very hot in March, you should go to Kenya. It is much nicer' It was just such an incredible experience."

Thanks, Susan!

Remember Julie in this stunning red dress during the early 90's? Oh, for the "Good ol' Days!" Thanks Susan, for sending this picture!

Photos of successful book signings have been held, the first one being at Dutton's Beverly Hills Bookstore; Borders of Bakersfield; Peppertree Bookstore, in Palm Springs, CA; the Golden Apple Dinner Theatre in Sarasota, FL; at Barnes & Noble, in (Morgantown) Grandview, West Virginia where they had a colossal turnout!

Hayes and Hayes appeared at the 11th Annual Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. Free to the public, it offered something for all ages and interests. Every year, it adds up to be America's largest and grandest literary event.

Guess who attended the Book Fair? That's right, another great weekend in Los Angeles and another chance to see Bill and Susan in person for Della! They signed books and spoke with their fans for an hour and I got to chat with them after their time was over. As always, they were so gracious and caring. Even as they were leaving, they still had fans running up to them to talk or take a picture, and each and every time, they stop, talk, listen and gladly pose for a picture! They are the best! Check out the fun shots of Bill and Susan! Great times, thank you once again!

They did a book-signing in Abilene, TX at Books-a-Million.

New Fans Speak!

The following was posted in our guest book and we felt it was worth seeing by everyone!

"We recently had the pleasure of sailing with Susan and Bill on one of their Crystal Cruises and the good fortune of being assigned to their table for the length of the cruise. They are two of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet--genuine, intelligent, funny...and very much in love.

Since we hadn't gotten hooked on soaps in the past, we didn't have a clue at the start of our cruise just how lucky we were to be able to get to know them this way. We looked forward to every one of their presentations, which were presented with grace, style, wit, respect for their craft and affection for their fans. It is easy to see how they have developed such a devoted following, both on Days of Our Lives and in "real life."

When we returned home, I went to the Internet to read all about Bill and Susan and was pleased to see so much information about them, especially the excellent site I found at http://members.tripod.com/~Hartlee/index.html. It was very satisfying to know that our new friends are recognized for being the wonderful people they are.

We have many fond memories of our cruise--but none better than the pleasure of getting to know Bill and Susan.

During our cruise, Susan was contacted to arrange a taping of an episode of Days of Our Lives. Since the taping was scheduled for July 1, the air date will probably be around July 15, two weeks later. We are programming our VCR already! (It actually aired August 3rd and 4th and Susan looked positively fabulous!)

At the risk of getting hooked as a new fan, I have to join the chorus of those who say "BRING BACK DOUG AND JULIE!"

Great News!

Bill's latest CD, dedicated to Susan, is brilliant and sales are soaring!! The arrangements are flawless. The variety of tunes is wonderful in that it compliments his range of music, from opera to Broadway to rock to ballads. His performance of each piece is perfect. There must be nothing he can't sing! And Susan's photography for the liner notes is excellent! Susan's comment on the new CD?
"I fell in love all over again!"
You may listen to clips from this CD, read Bill's bio, which is full of unknown facts, purchase photos and the CD here.

Ah, the good old Days! Weren't they terrific?

Elizabeth Harrower Seabold was the mother of actress, Susan Seaforth Hayes and mother in law to actor Bill Hayes. When we saw the eulogy Susan had written for her mother's memorial service, we asked to put it on our website to share with the world what a fabulous person Elizabeth Harrower Seabold really was.

Early Edition's...

tribute to Doug Williams and Bill Hayes was beautiful. They also included Julie in the tribute because it's never just been Doug; it's never just been Julie; it's ALWAYS been Doug and Julie. Thank you Barb, Laney and Linda for this special tribute and the link back to our site!

Remember this? The only soap opera couple ever to have appeared on the cover of Time magazine--
Bill and Susan!

This from an Early Edition poll for favorite couples:

Soap couples don't come any better than this. Married, divorced, then married again, Doug was also married to Julie's mother and fathered Julie's half-sister, Hope. And now Hope is also Julie's step-daughter. Confused? What we can't be confused about is what a super couple Doug and Julie form, and how likeable each of them is alone, and how great they are when put together. Their love has withstood the test of time, and having them still around in Salem today is wonderful! We're never quite sure if we're voting for "Doug and Julie" or honoring and congratulating Bill and Susan for their many years together...either way, this real-life married couple represents a bond so deep and true that through the actors' devotion and passion...their characters' write their own storyline with just a gaze into each other's eyes...they are simply too good together...they never seem to be acting in front of a camera. They are the only soap couple to have appeared on the cover of Time Magazine, and many feel Days was put on the map with that cover. Who can resist a love that has lasted for SO long and through SO many travails? Who can forget all of Doug's serenades to his fair lady? And it ended up in a REAL love that has lasted forever. They're gorgeous, they're sexy, and they're SO in love. She's whacky and he's just a sort of go-with-the-flow kind of guy. They compliment each other very well. They both would do anything for you and each has a heart of gold. Thus the feeling by so many, that Doug & Julie should be the next matriarch & patriarch of Days of Our Lives.

We couldn't agree more!! Thank you Barb, Laney and Linda!!
