She worked hard for the money.
In nearly forty years in showbiz, days of our lives‘Stacy Haiduk has pretty much played it all. And that’s not to mention that he took on Kristen, Susan and, years before she joined the show full-time, babysitter Jane Smith! The actress has done everything from superheroes to star wars voice, but there is a role in which we have just discovered her: Dancer!

When superfan QueenOfDiMeras tweeted a compilation video of Haiduk dancing in music videos from the 80s, the actress retweeted it with a laugh and wrote, “1986. How I paid my bills in New York! Make clips! »
The year of music videos (yes, we just made it up like it was a real thing) preceded Haiduk’s big break as Clark Kent’s high school sweetheart on CBS’ super boy. Before that, the actress was just a normal girl, living a normal life, taking out of control aerobics classes and doing desperately needed laundry. The poor woman had to undress in the laundromat to put away all her clothes.
Watch the video below and you’ll see exactly what we’re talking about!

Kidding aside, we never realize the actress had those kinds of moves. Not that that surprises us one bit!
Naturally, we had to dig to find out more. The laundromat scene is apparently taken from a movie called magic sticks, in which a man finds, as you can imagine, magic sticks that can make people dance uncontrollably. If you can find the movie, it’s crazy enough to be worth watching!
And apparently Haiduk could dance and sing, because she’s the background singer in Laura Branigan’s music video for “Shattered Glass!” (Yes, we have some Branigan superfans here who immediately recognized this clip.)
Check out all the glorious things below!
Haiduk has certainly come a long way since the days of big hair and big dance numbers! Now, of course, she’s firmly entrenched as a member of the DiMera clan, playing both Stefano’s adopted daughter and EJ’s mother. So before you go, how about taking a look at a gallery of DiMera’s twisted family tree? Kristen DiMera is so unique she made the list not once, but twice!
