Days of our Lives once again continues to usher in and out characters,  and now comes word that the series is casting another new character to the canvas!  According to Soap Opera Digest, the NBC soap is looking to cast the role of “Val”!

“Val” is said to be 25-years-old, gorgeous, female, who is described as “passionate, intelligent and sensitive. Val blows into town in a whirlwind… She appears successful on the outside, a girl who seems to have it all but … at times she has a fragility and (vulnerability) that gives us the feeling of a painful past that she desperately wants to keep secret.”

The role will begin taping in mid to late December, but will not air till May of 2016, due to DAYS production schedule of being almost six months ahead.

So, put your casting director hat on! Who would you like to see come to Days of our Lives to play the part of “Val”?  Who do you think fits the bill? Comment below!

Bree Williamson? Maybe a bit too old but she could certainly play that and play it well.

At 35 Bree Williamson is too old for the role.

Yeah…. I would have loved for them to have cast Kassie DP in a role that was more suited to her age, instead of casting her in a role that was 10-15 years younger and then put her in a relationship with her daughter’s 18 year old boyfriend. Let’s not have a repeat with Bree.

Elizabeth…. Kassie is only 6 years older than Melissa Reeves. Since their characters are the same age Kassie was hardly cast in a role that was 10-15 years younger. She also looks amazing and can pass for younger. Now, I’m not saying that I think they should cast Bree in this role but actors rarely play characters that are exactly the same age as they are. It’s about whether they have the right look and APPEAR to be about the right age. That’s why actors often hide their ages if they can.

I’m not seeing the purpose for this flood of new characters. DAYS has characters from its past that I would love to see return, as opposed to all of these new characters coming in, even if the casting has been great. I just don’t want to see another Madison James, or Serena Mason, or Taylor Raines, where a great actress is cast in a subpar role with no ties to the canvas. Hopefully they have a better plan for “Val” than they did for any of the other brand new roles DAYS has had in the past few years. As… Read more »

hi Jimmy ..
Just want to say..
No longer (politically correct stuff) are we to use the word Actress..
We no longer are to differentiate the male female, all are actors..
He, She = actor..
All, are now just an actor …. go figure lol

Ahh, my dear Su. I will never do that; refer to an actress as an actor. It just feels weird to me. Besides, why not call both genders actresses? Why does it have to be in the masculine form? Soon, we will be referring to ‘she’ as ‘he’, lol. Hmmmmm. Politically correct? Golly, Su, I don’t know about that! Really?
There’s no law that tells me I must masculinize the female form of words. I think, Su, it’s our choice….whatever we want to use. It’s bad enough there’s no differentiation within the animal kingdom….eg: dog; bitch…lion; lioness etc.
‘Nite, susu. Later.

I too don’t understand the influx of new characters. Use the ones we have in good story. It seems like they have been casting a lot of new ones lately.

I’m not impressed with the acting of Lani or the new kids.

Whoever it is, get someone who can act!

Brittany Underwood might be a good fit for the part. I liked her on OLTL as Langston.

True O’Brien…in search of her past comes to Salem to seek answers because of a dream she had and finds herself drawn to Paige’s grave…could she be Paige’s unknown long-lost twin sister Saige?…be sure to tune in tomorrow for the continuing story of Days Of Our Lives on most of these NBC stations…lol

Good idea, although a bit young!

I like Kim Matula, but don’t think she wants to do another soap.

Wish they would get rid of the character of Abby, Between her and her mother, both are enough to turn someone into a serial killer.

I am hoping she stays too, but I was thinking maybe it was a recast of Stephanie Johnson

Oh I hope Kate Mansi doesn’t leave. But that does sound like her recast if her contract is up next month.

Seriously: as always, Kelley Missal (OLTL). She is only 22, but I am sure three years won’t make that much of a difference.

@ CeeCee, Kelley Missal definitely popped into my mind, too. So glad would welcome this beauty, this great talent to DAYS. IF only she could live in Cali for a few years. She’s AMAZING.
Good call.

@Patrick.
Hi, Patrick,
That’s great that Kelley is in College….too bad for us, since she’s the perfect candidate. ‘Dani’ is all grown up. Lol. But, she can work around her schedule. Winter break is coming soon….and, that will go for a few weeks. It can be done; yet, her studies may suffer. Wishful thinking, I guess.

@Shay.
I have been trying to let you know, ma belle, that I have written to you twice in the past few hours. Nothing untoward, Shay, truly. But, my posts are being rejected. So I tried on this site. I find that DOOL and Y&R do not have favorites. The moderators are very fair. So, if this continues, I will not bother posting on GH any more. ‘Nite, carissima.

Where is DAYS getting the money to pay these people?? First all the returning vets, the new teens, Eduardo, Shawn, Belle and the new Philip, Real Andrews just got cast, Lani, now this girl?? GEEZ!!!!

Most of the returning vets have no interest in staying past the 50th anniversary shows. Personally I’m getting tired of seeing the same handful of people day in and day out.

I just want to comment on the ludicrous shooting of six months ahead Days continues to insist upon. I had hoped that would end with all the new changes taking place.

You might change your tune if and when there is a writers, actors, or some kind of technical strike that lasts for six months.

If that were to happen, DAYS would be safe and the other soaps would flounder, but at least your wish would come true. lol

I think I’d rather take my chances with a writing, actor strike than be held hostage for months on end before the show can reverse course for certain storylines, characters, etc. that just aren’t working out. 😉

I hope it’s not a recast for Abigail, I really love Kate in the role, she is totally believable. I’ve seen this happen before, another actress assumes the role and it’s just not the same. I hope they don’t recast her – I usually don’t care that much but in her case I would voice an objection.

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.
