Susan Seaforth Hayes plays Julie Williams on NBC's "Days of Our Lives."

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

Susan Seaforth Hayes was destined to spend her life on stage and in front of the cameras. Susan Seaforth Hayes' initial theatrical experience was at the age of four, playing "Trouble" to Dorothy Kirsten's "Madame Butterfly" for the Metropolitan Opera company. As a pre-teen, Susan Seaforth Hayes toured with Billie Burke in "Mother was a Bachelor," and as a teenager, she developed her crafts in the exciting world of television with appearances on: "Matinee Theatre," "Lassie," "Eve Arden," "Wyatt Earp," "Loretta Young," "Danny Thomas;" and films: "Five Pennies," "Angel in My Pocket," "Billy" and "California."

Susan Seaforth Hayes plugged away at her college studies, interspersing classes with film, TV, and stage work. She plumbed emotional depths on TV's "Dragnet," "FBI," "Death Valley Days," "Bonanza," "Hallmark," "My 3 Sons," "Fugitive," "Hawaiian Eye," "77 Sunset Strip," "Man from UNCLE," "Wagon Train," "Perry Mason," "Emergency," "Adam 12" and "Ironside." But when she discovered the exciting/demanding world of soaps Susan Seaforth Hayes was forced to curtail her academic work. "Young Married," (2 yrs.) "General Hospital," (1 yr.) "The Young and the Restless," (5 yrs.) and "Days of Our Lives" (26 years!) put a serious dent in her classroom attendance record. This was not without its rewards, however, as the sudsy genre produced for her 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 of Our Lives" co-star Bill Hayes.

In recent years, though Susan Seaforth Hayes lectured at Los Angeles Valley College and Boston University, her time still was primarily devoted to stage, TV and film. In 1997, she co-starred in the premiere of Bernard Slade's new play "Same Time Another Year." In the spring of 1999, Susan Seaforth Hayes created the take-charge role of District Attorney Steel on NBC's "Sunset Beach" and in the fall of 1999, she returned once again to add her personal spice to the character of Julie on "Days of our Lives."

Susan Seaforth Hayes is married to Bill Hayes, whom she met and fell in love with on the set of "Days of our Lives." Both were the first daytime actors to be featured on the cover of Time Magazine in January, 1976. On October 4, 2005, Susan Seaforth Hayes and her husband released their book entitled "Like Sands Through the Hourglass," a real-life love story of one of daytime's most popular supercouples. Susan Seaforth Hayes' birthday is July 11.
