Alicia Leigh Willis IN at Days of our Lives!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Looks Like Alicia Leigh Willis has been added to the cast of Days of our Lives and will figure into the diabolical Liam’s (Mark Collier) storyline!

According to Soap Opera Digest look for Willis to begin a stint on the NBC soap opera starting on April 22nd.  Soap fans know Alicia best for her role as Courtney on General Hospital!  Apparently the DAYS producer have been wanting to get Willis in a role in Salem after she was asked to sub for Nadia Bjorlin’s Chloe, but those scenes never made it to air!

So could Alicia be playing an ex, or a woman from Liam’s past?  Glad to see Alicia back on daytime?  Do you hope it’s not just short term, but could be more long term?  What do you think of Liam’s storyline thus far and his hatred of Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Daniel (Shawn Christian)?  Let us know!

Im not too interested in Liams storyline…we already had Anne, and then Teressa causing Jen havoc and now two more…i like Days but Jen and Danial need another storyline! I thought Liam shouldve been someone from Jordans mysterious past…a storyline that is going nowhere! Im not too familiar with the actress…didnt watch GH when she was there…i suppose her character will make a play for Danial to help Liam break Dan and Jen up but this has already been done with Teressa…however, ill wait and see how it goes…it might be better than i think…i hope!

I think she would have made a great Belle.

Yes I agree with you Ray, Belle Black would have been a better role for her.

Spot on! She would have been great as Belle, & Belle & Shawn are much needed back in Salem.

Never liked her. She was somber and mopey and just a complete wet blanket through her entire run on GH. Best day ever was when Courtney died in the outbreak.

Maybe she’ll have more personality in a new role…

I kind of hope she sticks around for a while, since I am a fan of Alicia’s work. Though, would love for her to go back to DAYS, too. Also could imagine her as an Eve Donovan recast, but Kassie is filling that role.

I am shocked #DAYS would hire ALW even for a short term recurring role. She was not well regarded as an actress at GH. I had hoped Liam and this gaslight / kidnap tale would have ended by now in mid April. This story has appeared as filler and ultimate throw away since the start of Mark Collier’s run. It would seem in order to secure renewal into 2016. Days is cutting salaries of cast to keep bottom line low into 50th anniversary year. I can understand the strategy.But it doesnt equal to great story and entertainment for viewer. The… Read more »

I love you Days. I really, really do. But what is it with you and this C-list casting??? Soaps have so much unused talented floating around. I don’t mean to knock anyone, but Mark Collier, Daniel Cosgrove, Alicia Willis? There are much bigger names from soaps who have larger fanbases and can offer so much more than these folks, and not all of them come with exorbitant price tags either. You should be tapping into THAT well, not this one. You need people who will generate buzz on social media and media in general. While it’s lovely and good you’re… Read more »

Agreed, Jules. I just cannot imagine the show hiring yet another short term recurring actor to supplement this short term Liam story. I felt like Liam’s story jumped the shark when he inexplicably became engaged in Nicole’s story.

Also, it is amazing no one knew she had been filming. Ari Zucker ‘s contract was up in March. No word on her status. Hope ALW is not a substitute for the talented Zucker. They are same age, coloring etc. Ericole looked like it was finally ready to launch in fall and now it is circling without real sense.

I agree with you, Jules… as well… “what’s with the C – list casting” and… here, here.. it’s for the love and betterment of OUR DAYS. my gut tells me… not so much… the vibe with this actor…. had to google her… I wasn’t watching GH when she was ON… ie: from 2001 to 2006… and had two consecutive emmy noms…. so be it… all relative…. right? I am still missing Sheryl… SHE was the newbie add that I was so excited for… and for whatever reason… DOOL production… didn’t see the potential… for Sheryl and Lucas I loved them… Read more »

She is a lovely engaging performer! Loved her on Another World and loved her on GH with AJ. But then she was written as just another mob loving moll and it turned me right off. I hope she is a long term viable character. She would have made a good Taylor. But yes…her and Brady sound good!

Maybe she could be Daniel’s “dead” wife….or a look-a-like that freaks him out. Maybe freak out Jennifer enough that she needs to be committed! The Daniel/Jennifer pairing is the most boring thing ever.

I have to agree that although I like Jennifer and Daniel, their storyline IS a little on the “who cares” chart. I’ve been watching Days of Our Lives for only a few months, to get my soap fix now that AMC and OLTL are gone, and it’s a nice show, but it needs something. Everyone is either at Brady’s pub or in that same stupid park set up – they need to mix it up a little. I thought the storyline ended rather abruptly (or did it?) between Abby and EJ – first it seemed like she was pregnant, then… Read more »

She looks a lot like Melissa Reeves so she could be his ex wife, would explain Liam ‘ S fascination with Jennifer or she could be someone hired by him as Jennifer ‘ S double in another of his schemes.

What a waste of Mark Collier’s talent. Shame on DOOL writing team. As far as Alicia’s future on the show…. unless she is a Horton or DiMera, her character will be short-term.

I’m hoping they keep her around for a while, I’ve always thought she’d do well on the show. Before Natalia Livingston, and later Tamara Braun, were hired as Taylor, I thought she would be good for that role. And I also thought she’d be good as Belle. I don’t know about bringing on another new character though, DAYS seems to be doing that a lot lately.

I’m happy she’s here now, though. ALW is a good actress.

THIS IS BS. I dont like her at all, please days producers bring back Vivian Alamain, Louise SOREL. I MISS Vivian so much. Vivian had charm with her side kick Ivan. Those were the days of our lives. The only storyline, I like right now is will and sonny. I loved the wedding, it was so good and the entire acting. Looking forward to kristen and eve, returning in the summer.

I’m happy for Alicia that she’s back on soaps.For i could see it been a short term stint to see how it goes before it turns into something long term.

I do have to agree with you Damien, poor spelling and all..I though it was me since i am not a long time fan..I been a DOOL fan for about three years now and its been A1.. but the last few months, boy has it been dragging on..I have like 10 episodes on my DVR because of lack of interest, and finally today started watching..And it just the same old thing. I know the show is getting the return of Kristen and the debut of the wonderful Kassie Depaiva as Eve, but this show is kind of stuck in the… Read more »

I’m liking nasty Liam. Don’t know about adding more peeps though. We’ll see. Days is pretty good right now, unlike Y&R.

Oh, good. Days continues it’s long tradition of hiring bad actors. Don’t get me wrong, there have been some great actors on Days, but there have been some really bad ones too.

I was never impressed with ALW on GH and I’m glad I no longer watch Days.

ICAM!! Courtney’s character was awful… didn’t miss her after she died. And I doubt she will be anything great on DAYS.

Congratulations to Alicia. Please, no more Dannifer air-time. So incredibly boring. Daniel deserves a beautiful, exciting, vibrant woman. There is no excitement between him and Jennifer. Zilch.

Ya, Liam has a nasty felonious way of dealing with people. So, I’m thinking Alicia will likely be an ex of Liam’s that he “met his match” with and he couldn’t get away with his stunts. She’ll show up and spill it on his evil ways. Maybe. Or not, maybe she’ll have no clue. But an ex for sure.

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
