DAYS Casting New Role Of Female Physical Therapist Hiding A Dark Secret – Who Would You Suggest?

Days of our Lives has a casting call that has gone out for the role for the new character of “Keara Baldwin”!

According to Soap Opera Digest, she is described as a 25 to 30-year-old beautiful Caucasian, who is a physical therapist and who grew up poor. The casting breakdown also notes that Keara: “Hides herself behind plain hairstyles and glasses as well as a dark secret about the last few years of her life.”

The role starts shooting mid-late February, but soap fans will most likely not see the character air till May since DAYS shoots three months ahead.

Alright, hiding behind plain hairstyles, means she is probably got to be a knock-out!  So soapers who you suggest for the role that you would love to see back on daytime?  Weigh-in!

Sounds sort of like Chloe (Ghoul Girl) came onto day…plain and boring but a beauty in disguise…

Most of the ladies I think of would be too old to match the description. It will probably go to a newcomer. Except for the age, the first person I thought of that needs to be on daytime SOMEWHERE is the great Kimberlin Brown.

I hope she’s Jeanie Donovan or another Brady to tie her to cast. They better be creating a new female character for Rafe or Lucas.

I wouldn’t mind having Alicia Leigh Willis back on daytime soaps. She was great as Sonny’s sister Courtney on GH.

Alicia was briefly on DAYS as a Chloe recast, but her scenes were removed when Nadia recovered before they went to air. So maybe she’s in the back pocket of the DAYS system.

I remember when Alicia was cast as a temp Chloe and was actually looking forward to her scenes and was sorry they got cut!

How about Brianna Brown, Andrea Bogart, Jen Lilley, or Brittany Underwood.

oh please, not Jen Lilley. That girl wore more makeup than Bozo the Clown and she’s a lousy actress.

Brianna Brown….. geez! she was a big part of the Patrick/Robin storyline! She was the best bad girl… i’ve seen in years…. she’d bring some acting credibility to DAYS. good choice.

I forgot about her… I wonder if she’s still going to be on “devious maids”.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Jen Lilley would be a beautiful casting decision. She’d really fit in right with the cast.

Crystal Chappelle.

Okay- not sure if I should use real math or soap math here- but would it possible she could be the secret love child of Hope Brady and John Black, when they were Princess Gina and the Pawn? I can still how Stefano could erase all memory of that from their minds- gave the child to some poor but deserving servant who could not have her own child to raise.

Patrick
Guest

this could reinvigorate the character of Hope… “move” her… to live without Bo….

A plausible reason for us fans to see her without that one man in her life…

Hope it’s someone worth watching!

If they were willing to give up on the age thing, I would love to see Beth Chamberlin on my screen again. GH would be my first choice, but DAYS is my number two soap so why not? Also please make her a Horton!

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

I remember the horrible rumour of Beth being a recast for Ashley Abbott on Y&R. I don’t know if Beth would want to return to Daytime, though. I’d rather see her on Y&R as a recast for Nikki’s sister.

Jen Lilley, Erin Torpey, Eden Reigel, I could think of a lot of actresses I’d like to see return to daytime

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest

Jen Lilley would be cute. Eden would be a no-no. She should go into primetime. Erin would be alright, but isn’t she in NYC?

If she was a little older, I would sugest a sarah Brown type, perhaps a Terri Conn.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

Terri would not do it. She and her husband revealed they won’t be moving to LA when OLTL was cancelled.

Lmao
Guest

Mmm husband ? She is not really married! Not to Austin anyway. Austin would go back to Days! his children live in California. I don’t think days would go for Terri Conn.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Ummm Terri and Austin are married and live in NYC. Where have you been?

LOL It’s you who doesn’t seem to. Creditable sources would not post something if it were not true. You’re just a hater who seems to enjoy nothing more than to ruin somebody’s reputation and hate on their happiness, due to your sad and close-minded reality.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

I’d say Sarah Brown, but I want her back as Madison James. And then there’s Tamara Braun/Natalia Livingston, who should both return as Ava/Taylor retrospectively.

Hmmm… this casting is proving to be tough. Maybe Marie Wilson (ex-Meg, ATWT) or Marnie Schulenburg (ex-Alison, ATWT) could both fit this role perfectly. Either them or a non-Daytime legend.

They still need to hire Maura West as Rebecca Jonas, Daniel’s former wife. That pairing AND hire would definitely be a great gain for DAYS.

YES, Bring back NL’s Taylor with EJ’s baby only she’s Married to someone else That would be some story and Tb as Ava now that would be GREAT.. wishful thinking,I know!!!!!!

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

Natalia was supreme as Taylor. Why they recast the character is beyond my mind. She was an asset to the series. I loved her chemistry with Brady, too!

And Tamara’s edge of Ava would be amazing on the series now as an ally to Kristen DiMera.

I really looking forward to this role coming back into Days. I wish we were seeing Marlena doing more of it. Lets face it there are plenty of Salemites who need guidance and someone level headed to talk too! LOL I have my fingers crossed that it wil be Rafes ex fiancee Emily!!! Seriously Rafe needs to get out of our Ejami lovestory and family and find himself a NEW GIRL and start a family all of his own! Emily would be a great edition for many reasons…. she could open up Rafes mysterious past to us, give us more… Read more »

Uhm, it says Physical Therapist, not Therapist. Which brings to question, who is going to be paralyzed? I really wish it would be an older character because Beth Chamberlin deserves a role somewhere.

Mary SF

I was thinking the same thing when I read the article- why does Salem need a physical therapist- so we now know near May sweeps someone will either have a stroke- be in a car accident or shot or perhaps the ever popular Days ploy- bomb /explosion.

Why does this character have to be white? There are enough white actresses that get roles from hollywood. How the heck can there be more racial minority opportunities when these hollywood casting people specify that the race of the character must be white? Is it essential that this char be white? Based on the description of the char the answer would be no. It’s not like they’re recasting a previous white char. They’re not casting for a member of the white core families. This role should be open to actresses of color. people of color are given very little opportunities… Read more »

She’s on Devious Maids so that is not happening. Plus, was not a fan of hers on GH.

Since she is only recurring on Y&R maybe they could snag Marcy Rylan for a contract role.

I would perfer either Kent Masters-King, Renee Goldsberry or Daphnee Duplaix, wonderful actresses who would bring some excitement to the rather boring DOOL. Dr. Cameron could use some loving as well.

Natalia Livingston,Natalia Livingston,Natalia Livingston Enough said!!! She was a beautiful Taylor,and really softened EJ..I would love to see that again (and I do on You tube) .. Bring Natalia back as Anyone..

His not really married to Terri. Trust me. He would go back to days. The thing is if days has not showed any new interest in Austin . They will never even consider Terri. Conflicts of interest. And for what a faked marriage! Austin !! He is divorce yes married no engaged: YES Terri is divorced but not married.

Wow fyi I happened to personally know Austin. And I do know the truth! Unlike you well duh ! I guess the jokes on you. Then! if you that easily fooled. Terri has never spoken for Austin (truth) And yes Austin has said if Dool called he would happily returned (truth). As for hate there were none in my comments. But plenty in yours.

Scott or what ever your name is I won’t call sod or any soap magazine a creditable source let’s not forget the cover story that soap opera digest ran a while back or the countless( of fake cover stories on days sl stories on ejam , lumi) that said Terri was going to the young and restless (that’s flimed in Los angels/so there goes your claim that she will never move ). And she was asked to audition for. There’s even video of Terri saying this yet. When tptb at the young and restless were asked they said Terri was… Read more »
