Susan Seaforth Hayes: Actress, Author, Historian











Until You Walk The Path, You Won’t Know Where it Goes will be chatting with actress, author, and historian Susan Seaforth Hayes on December 20, 2012 at 1 pm eastern as she talks about her new novel Trumpet and her amazing career as well her other many interests.

Susan Seaforth Hayes, professional actress by trade, is a historian by desire. Her degree from Los Angeles City College is in history, and the stack of books on her desk reflects an intense interest in the American West, European history, art history and Native American cultures. Had she not been so talented an actress she probably would be teaching today, or writing history books.

But Susan was destined to spend her life on stage and in front of cameras. Her initial theatrical experience was at the age of four, playing “Trouble” to Dorothy Kirsten’s “Madame Butterfly” for the Metropolitan Opera Company. At age eleven she toured a year with Billie Burke in Mother Was a Bachelor; and as a developing teenager she honed her crafts in the exciting world of television: Matinee Theatre, Lassie, Eve Arden, Wyatt Earp, Loretta Young, Danny Thomas; and films: Five Pennies, Angel in My Pocket, Billy, California.







While Susan plugged away at her college studies, interspersing classes with film, TV, and stage work, she mastered comedy and drama on TV’s Dragnet, FBI, Death Valley Days, Bonanza, Hallmark Hall of Fame, My Three Sons, Fugitive, Hawaiian Eye, 77 Sunset Strip, Man from UNCLE, Wagon Train, Perry Mason, Emergency, Adam-12 and Ironside. She also gained stature in live performance on stage in Come Blow Your Horn, Mary Mary, Time Remembered and Ring Round the Moon.

When she was cast again and again in the exciting/demanding world of TV soaps Susan was finally forced to curtail her academic work. Young Marrieds (2 yrs), General Hospital (1 yr), The Young and the Restless (5 yrs), Sunset Beach and forty years plus on Days of our Lives. All this drama put a serious dent in her classroom attendance record. The sudsy genre produced four Emmy nominations, several Best Actress Awards, a Time Magazine cover, many years of Top-Ten Lists in fan-mags, and even a husband, when in 1974 Susan Seaforth married her Days co-star Bill Hayes.



Some of her activities which have not involved performing have included serving on the board of the Screen Actors Guild, addressing the House Judiciary Committee, and the Republican Platform Committee, docenting at the Autry Museum of Western Heritage, and serving as an Elder and Board Member of the First Christian Church of North Hollywood. She has also lectured at Los Angeles Valley College (on Native American religions) and Boston University on acting for television.

The sweep of her credits in film, stage and television include Oklahoma, The Two of Us, I Do I Do, Same Time Next Year, Harvey, Matlock, Heartbeat, Dream Machine, Wrestling with God, 42nd Street, Social Security, Mame and a 1993 13-week tour of Oliver in Florida, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur! In the 90s, Susan wowed Birmingham audiences with her “Mama Rose” in Gypsy, toured Love Letters extensively, played the wily “Mrs. Rubinstein” on TV’s Platypus Man, and charmed West Virginia Public Theatre fans in A Christmas Carol and Cinderella.

In 1997, Susan co-starred in the premiere of Bernard Slade’s sequel play Same Time Another Year; in the spring of 1999, she created the role of “District Attorney Steele” on NBC-TV’s Sunset Beach. In 2007 she sang “I’m Still Here” in Follies and added then added Funny Girl to her credits in 2008.



Her memoir, Like Sands Through the Hourglass, was published by Penguin-Putnam in 2005, and enjoyed robust sales. Currently she is polishing her first historical novel, soon to be released by Decadent Publishing. And, yes, she continues to add her personal spice to the role of “Julie” on Days of our Lives (over 3,000 episodes!).

TRUMPET

Brilliant and sassy Elizabeth Trumpet fantasizes starring on the London stage, but to become an actress in 1803 is tantamount to losing her virginity in the most debasing way.

After watching her mother die and her father lose his mind, the courageous sixteen-year-old must find a way to save her family. She scores her first acting job as a fencer—the deadly skill she learned from her brother training for the military. Blessed with talent and a rare singing voice, Lizzie pursues her career, learning from theatrical characters high and low.

When reckless actor Jonathan Faversham sets eyes on Miss Trumpet, he knows he’s found the partner of his life. But Faversham carries ruinous baggage from a dark past. Entangled in lust and ambition, Lizzie gives him her heart and they reach the heights together. Until Lizzie gets more applause than he…

From the magnificence of Regency palaces and the Theatre Royal Covent Garden to the sun-baked pyramids of Egypt and the arms of a real-life Samson, Lizzie is never far from trouble. As her brother rides to glory with Wellington in the Napoleonic Wars, great events threaten her survival. Danger lurks behind stage curtains, when a madman sets fire to take her life and she lifts a sword in revenge.

Will this once innocent girl, with her rise to stardom, be remembered for her art? Or for her shame?

Paramount, Warner Bro., Lionsgate--Do you still be believe in Quality Films?



It was implied to me yesterday that I am archaic. That I don't know what the modern audience wants. I always loved films because they were a break in the fast pace, competitive world. Those two hours were a time to laugh, cry, be scared and visit other worlds. It was a time to relax and take a break from my own worries and life challenges. You fell in love with and along with the characters. You shared their adventures and their challenges. You also shared in their successes. They gave you hope that you could also win in your life.

But evidently movies aren't like that any more. I was told that in order to get foreign sales there had to be nudity and sex . Evidently they are more important the the foreign markets instead of love and romance. Plot and character development were less important than the having the scenes strobe across the screen. I have been told that the modern audiences don't have the attention span, patience, or the intelligence to watch movies that have actual plot and character development. It's so much easier to produce shallow films; they sell more toys, beach towels and other crap.

I don't believe this to be true. I believe that there is intelligent life out there, but I think that they are being ignored. I know there is a market for good old fashion plot and character based films. So let them call me archaic. I'll wear the label proudly because I will not compromise on quality.

In the 90s, Bill guest-starred in TV’s Matlock, Hooperman and Cop Rock. His 1992 stints with Ann Blyth at the Dunes in Vegas and Rainbow and Stars in Manhattan drew raves from the critics (“Not only does Hayes still belt ‘em out, he can tap!”).
