Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS) was a guest on Access Hollywood Live  today promoting her new novel in stores now Scared Scriptless! While speaking with hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover, the subject of Sweeney’s departure after nearly 22 years from Days of our Lives was discussed.

In an emotional moment as Alison was recounting what went down on her final tape day at DAYS, Kit asked her if she was scared or nervous about moving on with her career which did not include playing Sami  to which Sweeney answered: “I’m not scared. I’m sad, but I know that I will miss Sami. And I will miss my friends and the family that I have at the DAYS set… They’re my family and I’ve been doing it for almost 22 years.”

As to how the show will be writing off Sami, Alison confirmed again that the door will be left open for a possible return down the line should she want to at some point return to the soap opera:  “Yes, the door is open. There’s potential.  And I hope I come back — I would love to.”

Watch Alison’s segment from Access Hollywood Live after the jump! Then, let us know if you are happy that the door will be left open for the character of Sami to return to Salem?  How do you think she will be written off the canvas?  What did you think about Alison retelling the story from her final moment on the set and how everyone gathered around to be there as she shot her final scene?   Let us know!

I hope if she ever returns as a guest or full time they write something far better than what they have done with the sad, pathetic, pointless return of John Black…Days is still the best of the four remaining soaps but its starting to loose some steam…imo…hopefully that will change with Eves arrival and Kristens return…could care less if Rafe, Jordan and Ben left town…this trios storyline is very slow and going nowhere for me…nuBen wouldve made a better Chad!!! Come on American producers and writers…check out Britains Coronation Street and see how a great soap is done…you can see… Read more »

I have a feeling Sami will be back occasionally for guest visits around the holidays, etc. And then in about five years or so, she’ll come back full time.

I’m glad that they are leaving the door open for her to come back for special events and things down the road.
I want to know what item she stole from the Days set! They never addressed it in the clip (that I saw).
Haha!

Okay what did she take from the set that she wasn’t supposed to? Gave the tease and never got back to it– LOL. But the sounds of it she isn’t slowing down any, but after 22 years of doing anything, don’t blame for wanting to take a break. Have no idea how they write her off since the story is so far in the future– maybe they will have her become a PI and her first case is to track down Bo, but she disappears along with him.

I certainly wish her all the best. She is a dynamo with being a busy career woman, wife and mother!! With regards to the character of Sami I feel differently. Maybe its because she was written as such a one note psychopath under Jim Reilly’s pen…I have never been a big fan of the character. The last year or so I have liked her the most I ever have. But with that said…I feel it is a good time for her to go. The show is in good shape with both veterans and newcomers and her exit will not leave… Read more »

I’m not a huge fan of Sami Brady; but, I admire Ali Sweeney a lot. She is very driven, focused, and successful. I admire those qualities in a woman. I also admire how honest she appears to be about being a working wife and mother. I wish her the very best in her future endeavors!

Glad they will leave the door open for her to visit periodically. She was a central character, and seeing her once in awhile will add a spark and pizazz when the show needs a little bit of a boost. I hope the show will still be on in 5 years, and it would be fine to have her come back, but one never knows if the show will be on that long, and also Allison may be on to many other projects and venues. With all of the said, I wish Allison all of the best she seems to be… Read more »

DAYS Olympic-Style Promo to Tide You Over Until It Returns

DAYS fans know from past Olympics, that when the games begin, the long-running NBC soap opera which gets a two-week preemption leaves its viewers with one hell of cliffhanger and this time they left viewers with two.

First, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) now knows that Sami (Alison Sweeney) cheated on him with Lucas (Bryan Dattil0) and apparently goes to confront her, but in true EJ fashion he does not let on that anything remiss. Meanwhile, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has “kidnapped” Ciara (Victoria Konefal) just before she was to walk down the aisle and marry Theo (Cameron Johnson). Cin fans were rejoicing here!

So, while the games of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which are not taking place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) are taking place, NBC delivered their own Days of our Lives promo Olympic-style to hold viewers over till we return to Salem.

Take a look at the promo below.

Now, let us know, which story are you most looking forward to most when Days is back on the air? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
