MARLA ADAMS SAYS GOOD-BYE TO Y&R
Last week, Dina Mergeron took her last breath, which means portrayer Marla Adams is done at the show she first joined in 1983.

It has been a privilege, smiles the soap veteran. I've been on Broadway, in movies and major television shows, but nothing has been more humbling for me than this Alzheimer's story. I don't know how to say thank you enough about all the graciousness that I've been awarded and afforded by everyone at Y&R and the fans.

Adams has reprised the role of Dina sporadically through the years, and reports that she enjoyed every appearance. Dina was a remarkable woman and I always enjoyed playing her, she declares. She was a dynamic businesswoman but she really wasn't a decent mother, although she loved her kids very much. Dina had a knack of telling the truth and not necessarily with polite words. I tend to be like that as well but she doesn't get in trouble for it [laughs]. Dina was such a bitch but she had a heart of gold, and I think we saw more of that this last time.
