The Young and the Restless’ Christel Khalil (Lily Winters Ashby), who is now on recurring status with the CBS Daytime drama series, has landed a key role in an upcoming indie feature film, We Need To Talk.

In the comedy/drama, Khalil will play the role of Aly Fulton.  The feature is written and directed by Todd Wolfe with production slated to begin at the end on the month. The film stars Emily Bett Rickards (Arrow) and James Maslow (Big Time Rush, Dancing with the Stars) and will soon be co-hosting CW’s new talent show The Big Stage.

According to Deadline the film’s plot follows “a self-centered, video-gaming celebrity, Great Scott Gamer (Maslow) who speaks with millions of fans every day but doesn’t know how to talk to the people he loves.  It isn’t a problem until his girlfriend says, ‘We need to talk’, before disappearing to work.  Scott frantically spends the rest of the day on a wild goose chase trying to figure out what she wants to talk about and following awful advice from friends, fans and social media trolls. On top of it all, Scott is under immense pressure to review a popular video game franchise that he’s just not that into.”

Good luck to Ms. Khalil. I cringed every time one of her “kids” called her mom. She was so wasted as Cane’s wife. He is such a stuffed shirt, and the way he was always jumping her, made me sick. Now poor Traci is having romantic thoughts about him, yuk, yuk and yuk!

EP Ken Corday Shares Favorite All-Time DAYS Storyline Is Marlena’s Possession

While in Australia, Ken Corday, the executive producer of Days of our Lives, sat down for an interviews segment on 9Now’s Today Extra to talk about the rich history and enduring success of the long-running NBC daytime drama series, which is about to celebrate yet another anniversary in just a few short weeks on November 8th.

During the conversation, Ken was asked about his all-time favorite storyline, or if he had a frontrunner within the wealth of twist, turns, romances, adventure, and drama that has been part of the town of Salem for over five and a half decades.  Corday expressed that he did have a frontrunner … and that is was Marlena being possessed by the devil from the mid-90’s.

Ken told the Today Extra hosts: ‘When we took Deidre Hall, the lovely Marlena Evans, and had her possessed by the devil. It was right out of The Exorcist!’

The EP also admitted at first he was reticent to tell the story:  “I first said, ‘No, you’re mad this will never work!’ But we did it for a few weeks, and the story was meant to play out and then end at Christmas, but it ended up going on until Easter.”

That plot came from the mind of the late soap scribe, James Reilly, and had gone through many twists from when John Black (Drake Hogestyn) was a priest in one of that character’s many incarnations, and at the time, it was John who has to perform that exorcism on the woman he loved, after Stefano (the late Joe Mascolo) left Marlena vulnerable for demonic forces to enter her body.

There was the bed levitating, the yellow eyes, and more, along with Deidre Hall’s great performance, that made this one of the more spectacular soap opera tales ever told on daytime.   In fact, over the weekend, Hall commented on Corday’s choice tweeting:  “Couldn’t have said it better myself!!”

So, would you vote for Marlena’s possession as your top all-time Days story .. or do you have another pick that you think ranks at the top? Let us know your thoughts via the comment section below.
