Born in Milwaukee and raised in Lake Worth Florida, Deidre visited Los Angeles one summer while attending Palm Beach Junior College and landed modeling jobs, commercials and television shows very quickly.  In 1975, she portrayed superheroine Electra Woman in the Sid and Marty Kroft children’s how “Electra Woman and Dyna Girl” (where I became an immediate fan!). Deidre next appeared in the first two seasons of the hit show “Emergency”.  But in 1976, Deidre Hall skyrocketed to fame, creating the role of Dr. Marlena Evans, on the soap opera “Days of Our Lives,” a character whose popularity has created a furor and fan following rarely seen in television.

In 1986, Deidre became the first actress to ever star in both daytime and primetime series when she was cast in the NBC drama “Our House”.  She left “days” the following year to concentrate on this show and television movies that included “And the Sea Will Tell”, “For the Very First Time',' a Perry Mason movie and many others.  In 1993, she created “Never Say Never” in which she not only starred but executive produced.  The ABC movie was based on her real-life struggle to create a family and her final choice of a surrogate as their solution.

In 1991, she delighted her fans by returning to “Days of our Lives” and Dr. Marlena continues to be one of the most beloved anchor characters.  Deidre has graced the covers of national and regional magazines, won numerous awards and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  She enjoys painting watercolors and even created her own notecard line featuring her art with her twin sister Andrea.
