More heartbreaking news for some daytime favorites this morning out of Soap Opera Digest. The publication and web platform are reporting that three performers have been axed as part of executive producer, Ken Corday’s cost-cutting measures to restructure the show.

So that means the Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe) Tamara Braun (who just came on the show replacing Natalia Livingston, as Taylor) and newcomer, Bren Foster (Quinn) have all been pink-slipped.   We will have more on this developing story later.

I totally agree they need to listen to the fans bring Nadia back !!! stupid and degrading for her talents to have her play a prostitute .The story lie with Quinn is pathetic and seems to be leading no where , not loving the show now 🙁 As for sexy i think he looks more of a sleaze .

I AGREE! All the hernandez clan have been useless- especially Rafe. Maybe with Tamar Braun leaving we can get EJAMI. But I love Chloe and Danloe. I wouldnt be surprised if Shawn Christian is next.

This ruins my day. I was loving the new storyline with sexy Bren and finally liked Nadia and then add in Viv and magic. Yesterday’s scenes with Quinn and Vivian would pure gold–I watched them at least three times. Not so much the rest of the show. I have not missed John or Marlena.

I agree–get rid of Dario. Never liked him.

Been watching since 1984, but these recent changes are really making me mad and have ruined the show. Bren the the sexiest actor to grace the TV in ages and they dump him??!! STUPID!

Not surprised Bren’s leaving, or Nadia either. And I already knew Louise was on her way out.

Molly should probably start polishing up that resumé. She’s not a Horton or a Brady, so her head is eligible for Corday’s chopping block. And given Crystal Chappell’s ouster, and Shawn Christian’s likely ouster in the coming months, she shouldn’t get too comfortable. Nadia’s been there far longer, and she was apparently an easy release for them.

Why wouldn’t she be there? She’s a strong character and I think Chloe, Quinn, and Tamara take care of the six being fired.

How long until Shawn Christian is ousted? (Answer: until Jack wins back Jennifer. I give it a couple of months, tops.)

End of Days, indeed…

That is, a couple of months from Jack’s start date. So, what? November airdate ouster? Something like that?

What in the heck is going on??? Don’t get rid of Chloe! You can lose Tamara & Bren. Why don’t you get rid of Melanie & Dario those two are so annoying, it’s like finger nails scraping a chalk board.

I think you mean (mind) and no I’m not. Melanie & Dario, who has a slight eye problem which is distracting, have no chemistry and very little acting abilities. Chad & Gabi who get little air time can leave as well.

That is it! I have no idea what the hell TPTB at Days are doing, but it’s one hell of a fire sale….They must be trying to cut the budget even more to show NBC how frugal they can be – BAD MOVE!!! I am really sad, because I used to always find myself coming back to Days when I had strayed and still finding something I still recognized in the show – I’m not so sure that’s going to be the case any longer. Enjoy your time on NBC while you can, Days of our Lives…I believe your contract… Read more »

Umm. They’re getting ready to pay really big salaries to the people they’ve hired already. It’s not a fire sale it’s finally remembering who the people have been begging for since they were let go.

I very upset that crystal chappell , louise sorel, and bren foster were let go. Ken corday pick the wrong ones to fire, vivan is a very popular villian and soap star. Crystal chappell is a great actress and is popular as well. Bren foster could have a great time as the smooth talking pimp , him and E.j could have bump heads(days lost). They better keep Rafe, Dario, Melajnie, and Daniel. Please get rid of Chad and Gabi next. Bring back Austin, Carrie,Lucas, and mike horton.

I totally agree with you bren foster was rehired hope that’s true. Louise sorel I first saw her on the original STAR TREK she played a humanoid she was gorgeous….Her acting abilites are old school an on the mark! What a lose, what’s next Stefano? Weak players Gaby, Dario, Taylor, boring

Sympathize with actors because of job loss, but good move to remove characters Chloe, Taylor and Quinn. Chloe story has gone from bad to worse. Chloe as a prostitute is horrible. This girl has a voice for Opera and she is reduced to a prostitute. What a waist of Nadia’s talent. At the very least the writers could have let her become a cabaret singer to “sing for her supper”. Prostitution plot is a huge turn off. Tamara Braun never should have replaced Natalia Livingston in the first place. Also, writers should have let Taylor take the high road, stay… Read more »

The only one I will miss is Nadia/Chloe.Losing the extremely talented and drop dead gorgeous Nadia is the worst thing that could happen to the show. When you have someone like Nadia on your show you don’t let her go. You write sl’s worthy of her talent and beauty. Wether it was her decision or hers, they have to find a way to bring her back and give us back the real Chloe. Chloe Lane: A veteran(12 years), very loved and famous character thanks to her portrayer….they can’t let her go:They’ll lose: Chloe’s ,Broe’s, Phloe’s, Danloe’s, Carloe’s, Luloe’s, Quinnloe’s fans.… Read more »

This is a very bad move. I can understand letting TB go, she has been all wrong for the part of Taylor from the beginning. She’s a fantastic role but not believable as the doe eyed innocent or the younger sister of Nicole when she looks significantly older than Ari Zucker. I also agree with Bren Foster, as his character brings nothing to the canvas but to let go of Nadia Bjorlin, a fan fav who has been on for many years and who has a HUGE following as being half of Danloe is a bad move. i’m not even… Read more »

Well they sure have given braun a meaty story so hopefully it will be good soap watching to see how they all go out. Rather lose a few actors as lose the whole show and this day and time they are getting rid of soaps entirely it seems

I’m so pissed Nadia is fired! Why should she get the shaft because Higley wrote this HORRIBLE storyline. I was hoping for a fresh start when they brought a new guy in for her, but they made the guy a pimp! Ack! The character was a smart girl in high school when she came to the show. Higley just wrote her in a corner. You can be the show sex bomb without making her a bimbo whore. If Corday did not want stories of prostitution and drug addiction, why did he let Higley START those stories? Doesn’t he have to… Read more »

They made a huge mistake with the Taylor/Nicole/EJ story line. Taylor turning EJ into an honest dude is FREAKING BORING, BORING, BORING, BORING !!! We watch because of all the crazy things EJ and his twisted family do. Nicole is best with EJ. I can’t believe what they attempted with that story line. It’s painful to watch Taylor. I actually stopped watching. I will watch when she is off. Nothing against her, but you could not have picked a worse person to play Taylor. The Taylor the had before was so pretty, classy and sweet. Then like that, they replace… Read more »

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Photo: NBC

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
