Days of Our Lives' star Deidre Hall has revealed she blesses herself with holy water before doing any scenes involving demonic encounters.
The daytime diva, 73, admitted she goes to great lengths to make sure she doesn't end up like her character Dr. Marlena Evans, who was possessed by the devil in the 90s and will again come under Satan's control during season 56.
'When we embarked on the storyline, our executive producer and showrunner, Ken Corday, actually sent over holy water and a crucifix,' Hall explained during a visit to the Kelly Clarkson Show.

'And every time we do a scene where I'm possessed, I've taken it on stage and offered anybody who would like to have some holy water – and everybody says yes. So, we go around the whole set.'
Hall says the storyline will go 'all the way through Christmas,' and teased that the cast 'just finished a huge Christmas show that involves the possession.'
The actress has been with Days Of Our Lives as Dr. Evans since 1976, rotating in and out of the cast through the years.
The demonic storyline was introduced in 1994
