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!

wow, another useless newbie!
days is trying my patience! can we get some real attention grabbing returns!
carrie, austin, belle, shawn, bo, phillip?! some recognizable faces?
new chad as head of di mera enterprises is a bigger joke than the wasted year of jordan, her beefhead bro and her hick trailer park pop!
enough with the screen time fillers days! if u want steady viewership we cant just keep waiting for eileen davidsons returns!

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.

“…A new super couple to root for. ”

I want, so much, for, Shane and Kimberly Donovan to return

Charles Shaunessy and Patsy Pease would make my world orbit even more for

wish list time : Christie Clark and Patrick Muldoon

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

No clue but can’t wait to find out. Someone from Ben’s past maybe? Someone new for Abigail? The possibilities are endless!

Quoting from the article: “Mayfield will play an ex-flame of Serena Mason played by Melissa Archer.”

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

Any and all sounds good, jimh!

Quoting from the article: “Mayfield will play an ex-flame of Serena Mason played by Melissa Archer.”

Enough with all the newbies. Never heard of this guy. Bring back Julie and Doug–give them some story.

Doug and Julie are said to have an upcoming storyline.

I hope they do…they are considered Daytimes first supercouple…i have several favorite soap couples but Doug and Julie will always be no.1 to me!!!

Good! I hope it’s a good story.

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 Eric finally hook up. Also, why does Dr. Dan live in a small little apartment? He can certainly afford a house….. Put him in a nice house. Okay, that’s it. I have been a fan of DOOL since day #1!!!

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 for the baby’s sake. Then, after the baby was born, they could divorce and he could marry her (Julie). Reluctantly, they went through with the plan, only Julie never got to marry David. Susan became reluctant to divorce so soon, and Julie decided to “force” the divorce by getting herself pregnant by David. Then, one afternoon, David left the baby unattended to answer the phone; the baby fell and later died. Susan flipped out and shot and killed David about the same time Julie found out she was pregnant. What happened with Susan is a whole long story that broke up Bill and Laura and got Laura and Mickey married. Back to Julie: She was convinced the best thing to do was give her baby up for adoption. Her baby, also David, was adopted by Janet and Scott Banning, who happened to live across the hall from Susan. None knew baby David was Julie’s child. Anyway, Janet got sick and died, and Scott and Susan bonded over taking care of the baby. Meanwhile, Julie decided to recover her child, which set into motion a very emotional custody battle at the end of which, the judge ruled in Julie’s favor. She got her baby back, and used him to come between Scott and Susan. Eventually, Julie and Scott married . . . and then there was Doug, and Bob Anderson . . . and after Bob fell in love with Julie, Scott (an architect) was injured and killed on a construction site. I probably could go on, but I guess you’re tired of reading about the “good old Days.”

You’ve done a better explaination than i did…had i seen it sooner i wouldve let it alone but it wasnt there when i wrote my version…i tried to condense it down and left out much detail that you included…those were better Days…lol

I wish I could see those DAYS!

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 in divorce…Davids next romance was with Renee Dumonde who was later murdered…David,Trish and Scotty were written out of the show in the 1980s but a grown up Scotty returned to the show many years later but left town…David, Trish and Scotty are now long forgotten members…at least on the show…of the Horton Family…i might of left a few things out…tried not to be so lengthy…Julie wasnt involved with a Scott during those early years…it was David Martin…a more grownup Julie played by Susan Seaforth Hayes was involved with Scott Banning a little later in the program…hope i was helpful!!!

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 canvas for story!

agree. where are belle, shawn d, carrie, Austin, bo, Melissa, Philip, chloe,?

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.

I hope he is the new “BO,BO,BO!”

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 ball on the 50th anniversary opportunity to really dig into the show’s rich history for compelling drama to tell.

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 me that some of the Hortons have disappeared and never been mentioned again. Steve, Tommy, and Sandy don’t even have ornaments on the tree! I don’t think David or Scott do anymore either. Sad. Would it kill them to have Julie mention in passing that she was visiting her brother or son on one of her many trips?

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.

I miss EJami. Some of the stories have been lacking lately.

You are entitled to your opinion!

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.

Mark Consuelos Celebrates One-Year Anniversary as Co-Host of ‘Live’ Alongside Kelly Ripa

Today, April 17th marks a full-year since Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo, All My Children) took over the co-hosting duties of ‘Live” alongside his wife, and longtime co-host, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley, All My Children).

Consuelos replaced Ryan Seacrest who are six seasons decided to be back on the west coast full-time. For Consuelos, now having the opportunity to work off of Ripa as co-hosts has been something of adjustment for him, but viewers have been eating it up.

Live with Kelly and Mark has remained the No. 1 entertainment talk show on television over the past year, growing 3% in average total viewers to 2.23M per episode.  It is also the most-watched daytime talk show in the last year in key demos of women 18-49 and women 25-54. All of this, since the real-life marrieds teamed-up.

Speaking with Deadline, Kelly Ripa shared why the two are gelling on-screen, “I do think that there is something very possibly relatable about our relationship. We have disagreements like a normal couple, and we’re not afraid to let them unfold on the air and in front of America, and I think people find a lot of themselves in that.”

Mark weighed in how he has progressed as a host, and what he could improve at, sharing, “I’d like to get better at my interviewing skills. I’d like to get better at reading a teleprompter…I think I’m getting better at throwing to commercial. The other day in the middle of the show as we go to commercial, my sign off was ‘See you guys around.’ I mean, the show wasn’t over. The most obvious thing to say would be, ‘We’ll be back right after this.’ But I just said, ‘See you around.’ So we went to commercial and one of the producers (goes) ‘What was that?’ I don’t know… So for the next few sign offs, as a joke, I’d say ‘See you around.’ We got a kick out of it.”

Meanwhile, Kelly has given huge props to Mark, “I find Mark utterly compelling, really interesting, super funny, and he’s bold in a way like nobody else. He says what’s on his mind. If he’s thinking it, he says it.  I’ve done this a long time and oftentimes people will adjust their natural personalities to pander to what they think the audience wants to hear, and Mark will tell people what he thinks, and he doesn’t care if it’s not a popular opinion. It gives him an edginess that I think is really missing in the landscape today. Everybody’s so afraid to say anything, and Mark is unafraid to say exactly what he’s thinking.”

In a statement, Debra O’Connell, President News Group and Networks, Disney Entertainment shared, We could not be more thrilled with how Mark has seamlessly joined the show family as permanent co-host. His undeniable charisma and his and Kelly’s natural chemistry are evident as they deliver the laughs and smiles to our viewers each morning. We are incredibly proud of how Live has continued to evolve and that the audience is responding so enthusiastically.”

So, do you think Mark Consuelos is the best co-host his wife Kelly Ripa has ever had on ‘Live’? How would you say he is doing as co-host after one full year on the job? Comment below.

Jacob Young Shares Production Pic of Cast of His New Film Featuring Joan Collins and Nadia Bjorlin

Last month, during a livestream conversation on the Michael Fairman Channel, while promoting Jason Cook’s film, Four for Fun, and featuring soap notables Jacob Young (ex-AJ, AMC, ex-Lucky, GH, ex-Rick, B&B) and Brytni Sarpy (Y&R), Young revealed some intel on his upcoming movie project.

Jacob shared that he was set to direct, produce and star in a Agatha Christie-like murder mystery feature film, Murder Between Friends shooting in Prague.

The actor/director expressed, “I’m flying at the end of the March to Prague to direct, produce and star in a film with Joan Collins (ex-Dynasty). Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe, Days of our Lives) is in it, and Toby Alexander Smith from Eastenders (ex-Gray Atkins). Plus, a couple of my Broadway friends and a very well known Czech actress (Hana Vagnerova). It’s very ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.”

Young is currently shooting the film’s principal photography abroad through April 17th.

Over the weekend, Jacob took to his Instagram to share a photo with the cast of the film where pictured is former Dynasty star, Joan Collins (ex-Alexis) and former Days of our Lives star, Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe).
