Both Louise Sorel and Robin Strasser have played Vivian Alamain who is a force of nature. When Dano was asked about following these ladies in the role she said, “I kind of want to feel that as an actor, I can take a part and really, truly try and make it my own. I wouldn’t want to copy someone, even though the fans of days maybe wouldn’t like me to do that because they’re so in love with Louise and that’s so dear for her, but I never felt that way.”
She added, “And after I talked to Ron [Carlivati], the [head] writer, we went over the whole plot and we talked about it for quite a long time, and he said to me openly, ‘Listen, we want you to bring whatever you want to this part.’ And I took that literally, so, as much as I gave the flavor—I hope, I hope the fans will see that from DAYS—the quality of Vivian, I also added a little bit of Linda Dano.”

During the interview Dano was asked about her role as romance novelist Felicia on AW and she talked about her incredible nearly 20 year run.
“And yet, after I began playing her, I went to the writers and I said to them after about three months, ‘Would you mind if I kind of breathed a little soul into this character?’ And they went, ‘Yeah, yeah, sure, Linda. That’d be fine.’”
“They just didn’t even care what I was saying, and I did. I breathed soul into Felicia and you know, eighteen years later, that was it; we were done, with more memories than I can even begin to count.”
