Looks like more former daytime favorites are returning to the soaps and NBC’s Days of our Lives! 

This time news has that the former All My Children star Adam Mayfield who played the role of Scott Chandler on ABC’s version of the series from 2009-2010, will be appearing in what appears to be a recurring role on DAYS!

Adam’s recent bio on the actor’s website which catches fans up on what projects the actor has been doing of late ends with: “He (Adam) also returned to daytime this fall to stir up some trouble on Days of our Lives.”

According to a DAYS rep, Mayfield will play an ex-flame of Serena Mason played by Melissa Archer.

Be on the lookout for Mayfield to hit Salem sometime in 2015 since the series tapes so many months in advance.

Looking forward to seeing Adam back on your daytime screens again? Comment below!

Well said Damien, I’d prefer to see the return of Shawn D and Belle, by a set of new actors. I too, am not fans of Jordan or Ben, and the actor who plays Ben is banal. I agree, we can’t keep waiting for Eileen to shake up Salem. Hopefully, the insertion of Melissa Archer into the DAYS orbit works. I do however like the actor who plays Clyde. Hopefully, Jordan will be killed off. We do need a pair of big returns to Salem. A new super couple to root for.

I love the Shane and Kimberly return idea. I’m sure they will come back for the 50th anniversary. Be great to see them connect with Theresa, Eve, and Paige.

Days needs more blasts from the past like Shane and Kim…and several more…i want Stephan Schnetzer ex Steve Olsen, Julies brother, to return…he’d make a great love interest for Kate…he was on Days in the late 70s…he sold his sister fake antiques…probably before you started watching…he also was popular as Cass on AW for many years…i dont know if you know of him but he was great and sorely missed on soaps…he and Kate would be hot together!!!

AW was my #1 soap, back in the day. I loved Stephen as Cass, met him and many others at the AW fan luncheon, and on set. Miss Another World. I would really Kate on DAYS to have a low interest. Right now, I am enjoying her “dating”…seeing…okay sleeping with Clyde, for the moment. Kayla also needs a love interest…even though she’s recurring, she needs loving, too. How about Kayla and Abe?

a few typos there. “I would really like Kate on DAYS to have a love interest”.

days seems to be going the route of : Y&R and GH

hiring a lot of newbies….

geez! wouldn’t it be something if DAYS hired; actors from “Another World”

established couples and families even

Frankie and Cass
Sharlene and John
Vicki and Jake

so many couples to name

ATWT : my all time favorite serial
AW : had the BEST cast superlative…

I’d love to see Stephen Schnetzer on DAYS

He’s Aidens brother-in-law out to blackmail him knowing Aidens wife is alive…Wills secret lover…someone stalking Melanie…Serenas ex husband…he starts a fire at Sonnys new club that ends Jordans life…Jordans former lover and she leaves town with him…all of the above…lol

I loved Adam, just not as Scott Chandler. So I hope this new role is one that suits his talents much better than that of Scott did.

I think I remember a baby named Scott born to Julie, when she was teenager. Her boyfriend was named also named Scott…I think he died. Julie’s best friend, Susan, not EJ’s mother, had an affair with with Julie’s boyfriend, or maybe they were married then, so maybe it was Susan’s baby. Anyway, I think Scott Chandler has something to do with Julie. Wishing the writers would move on from this Kate and Clyde thing. He is a sleez ball! She is totally out of his league. Also, just get Daniel and Jen together once and for all. Let Nicole and… Read more »

When Julie was a teenager, her best friend was Susan (Denise Alexander) and her boyfriend was David Martin. David was a spoiled rich brat, and gave Julie the attention she craved (having been left behind with Tom and Alice because her parents Ben and Addie moved to Europe without her. One night, David was driving Susan home while drunk, and he pulled off the road to talk. He ended up raping Susan, and she got pregnant. Since you didn’t have children out of wedlock in those days, Julie convinced David he had to do the right thing and marry Susan… Read more »

Julie had a child named David…she got pregnant by David Martin who was married to Julies rival Susan Hunter…Susan shot and killed David because she blamed him for their sons death…Julie put her baby up for adoption and he was raised by Scott and Janet Banning…after Janet died, Scott and Julie became a couple…Scott died after an accident at a construction site for Anderson Manufacturing…David would be gone for some time and returned to town…he was involved with Brooke Hamilton, Valerie Grant and Trish Clayton…he gets Trish pregnant and marries her…they have a son named Scotty but their marriage ends… Read more »

No offense to the actor, but I am SO sick of all of the new characters that keep popping up on this show! Especially when they don’t use the cast they already have! John is put in a coma for months, then sent out of town, Marlena pops in and out for only brief moments, we rarely see Kayla, or Abe. They have terrific actors like Aloma Wright who they could do great with a big story, and instead we get all of these young characters that have never mentioned before ‘histories’ with established characters! JUST USE THE CHARACTERS on… Read more »

It would be fun for him to do some scenes with Daniel Cosgrove (Aiden). Both of took a turn as Scott on AMC.

I WAS thinking the same exact thing – two ex-Scott Chandlers now on the
new soap “Days of All My Children with one life to Live” – NBC is wisely gathering up alumni from ABC’s two iconic soaps – but whether or not this
will prove to be a clever strategic move remains to be seen.

Sorry, but if Bo had BOtox to make himself look over a decade younger i might agree but Bo is 50ish and this actor is only 38…maybe as Shawn D would be ok…lol

My Christmas wish is he would be a recast Mike Horton, or Shawn Douglas, or Philip K.– anyone connected to the show’s history in the 50th year. But since the role is recurring he might just be another newbie connected to other newbies— Can’t wait for the calendar to change to Jan 1 and the 50th year stories start cranking out. I get right now everything is on a holding pattern story wise, but this about as dull as this show has ever been— so looking forward to the New Year– it should be good, unless they completely drop the… Read more »

He’s(38) a little too young for Mike(Who is 50ish…Mike is older the Jen but Shawn or Philip would be good or as Mikes grown son Scotty…Days needs to stay focused on its rich history…more Hortons and Bradys…i hope the 50th anniversary doesnt disappoint…would like to see former cast members make one day appearances or some short story arcs that last for weeks like the return of Julies rival Susan Martin who turns out to be Anne’s mother…would love to see the last three adult Mike Hortons in a scene together…silly maybe but id love it!!!

Thanks for the intel– it is always hard for me to determine age by a picture. I remember Mike being young, I guess I forgot that soap characters age just like the rest of us LOL.

jimh, I think you mean Mike’s grown son Jeremy (by Robin). Scotty was Julie’s grandson (David’s son). Both David and Scotty were aged so rapidly that Julie was the grandmother to a grown Scott by the eighties, which was totally absurd because Susan Seaforth-Hayes was only in her early forties (and her on-screen grandson was in his twenties played by Ric Hearst). It’s actually sad that the show has sort of pretended they don’t exist rather than have her mentioning them on occasion.

Mike’s grown son Jeremy was last played briefly by Trevor Donovan in 2007.

Your not alone Mary…at first i thought of Bo and Mike recast but i googled him because he look familiar to me…he resembles someone else and thought i seen him somewhere other than AMC…i noticed his age and thought he couldnt play Bo or Mike…he does look the part…but Shawn or Jeremy(Mikes son) would be possible…

Oops! Looks like you know your history pretty well and just typed the wrong name before. I love your idea of Anne being tied to one of Julie’s old rivals! But considering her contempt for the Hortons, it would probably be weird to mention it now unless it was a secret she was harboring. Have you noticed how the show never references it’s own history prior to the arrival of the Bradys? I get that the 80s sort of took the show in a new direction and that most of the audience wouldn’t know old references, but it’s always bothered… Read more »

Hi JP…it does bug me how the show never mentions certain Hortons…would love it if Julie at least mentioned a visit to see David and Scotty or her brother Steve…i see Kayla being used a little more…would like to see her fall for Abe…maybe Maxine could be her rival???

Looking forward to this new development in Salem. Expected Nicole to want to “scratch Serena’s eyes out” because of Eric. This new development with Serena’s ex-boyfriend will make the story even more interesting!

I don’t miss EJ and Sami at all. The stories going on now in Salem are interesting enough. This one with Eric and Serena is about to get real interesting!

I agree; the void left by Sami and EJ’s gag-worthy story has been filled nicely. I just need more development for Nicole, and then the series is working out quite well.

Bring the real Bo back , no one can take his place he was the best on the show I watched Days for over 25 years and it’s hard to find anyone to fit his shoes.

I wonder if the reason they dont focus much on the history is because the show was rebooted a few years ago.

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

Photo: JPI

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.
