Amazing work!

 

But I have one question. Shouldn't Josh Taylor's appearances as Roman Brady and Chris Kositchek be combined on the actor's list, thereby giving him 2813 episodes and a 12th place on that list?

That list is also on the page further down. The 95 actors who played two different roles (non-dual) in different stints. Bonnie/Adrienne had always been listed separately until all of a sudden they looked like each other and became a dual role. So, that's why Josh, Tamara Braun, Stacy Haiduk, John Aniston, Paul Telfer and all of the others have their combo numbers on this different list.

 

TWO OR MORE SEPARATE ROLES:

95 actors are on the list above at least twice, having played roles during at least two different stints. Here are their total episode counts:


Josh Taylor (Roman Brady-1793/Chris Kositchek-1020) 2813

John Aniston (Victor Kiriakis-2731/Dr. Eric Richards-11) 2742
Joseph Mascolo (Stefano DiMera-1871/Dr. Tufano-5) 1876
Renee Jones (Lexie Carver-1638/Nikki Wade-63) 1701
Wayne Northrop (Roman Brady-918/Alex North-130) 1048
Kyle Lowder (Brady Black-662/Rex Brady-88) 750

Rachel Melvin (Chelsea Brady-518/Georgia LaMarque-5) 523

Jacee Jule (Patty-480/Waitress at Alice's-21/Bliss-9/Sandra-7/Ellen-6) 523
Paul Telfer (Xander Kiriakis-312/Damon-7) 319
Tamara Braun (Ava Vitali-116/Taylor Walker-80) 196
Stacy Haiduk (Kristen DiMera & Susan Banks-182/Warden Jane Smith-3) 185

These stats always interest me.  It really shows how much some of these actors were used, even if they had time off between contracts (Peter Reckell, Susan Seaforth Hayes,etc), or huge periods of time when they were never in their own story (Maggie, Mickey) and actors like Susan Flannery that haven’t been on the show since the mid 1970’s, and yet is still in the top 40.  That’s incredible.

Or MacDonald Carey being dead for nearly 30 years and still in the top 10. Fascinating.

It really shows just how much those folks were on screen, how important to the tapestry of the show that they were that present, so much so that he and Frances as Alice are both so high up in episode ranking.

This is quite amazing, and it's interesting to me, as someone who never watched this show, scrolling through the names and seeing how many I know as we go lower on the list. Pardon me if this has been asked before, but how were you able to get an accurate count back to 1965 - scripts, recaps?

It's as accurate as can be with what I had access to. The script covers for 1965-1983, but I would notice errors (in Maggie's debut script, which I have the full script of, there are characters in the episode they forgot to list on the cover). Also, there are times when characters would be cut from the episode and not actually air (although maybe that didn't happen as much back in the early 1980s, and probably never in the 60s or 70s). Other script covers would sometimes have characters crossed out (guessing those were cut) and others would have characters hand-written at the bottom (guessing they were forgotten when the script was typed, but added by hand eventually). Also, I have the weekly production charts, which sometimes differ from the script cover, for most of 1969-1973, so those helped catch some additions that would have been missed on the script cover. I've tried for years to get copies of all the weekly cast charts from 1965-1968 and 1973-1983, but to no avail. But, until the episodes actually are aired on TV hopefully someday, we probably won't know the exact accuracy. Hopefully they'll air the episodes someday, and then I can make any corrections that need to be made (which hopefully won't be too many)!!

@JAS0N47 I'm just in awe. That's so great that you were able to put all that information together.

 

Thanks!  Did the bulk of that work from like 2006-2012, so since then it's just been the easier year-end updates.

Agree.  Honestly, @JAS0N47, I don't know WHY Ken Corday doesn't have you on DAYS's payroll as staff historian or something.  You do such incredible work keeping these archives intact and up-to-date.  May you have a FANTASTIC new year!

Thank you, Khan. Happy New Year to you as well!! That would be nice to be paid for doing the stats I love to keep!! At least I know my stats provided Dee, Drake and Kristian with their 4,000th episode parties, so the show has gotten some use out of my record-keeping.
