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!

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.

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

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…

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!

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)

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.

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)

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 »

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.

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.

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 »

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).

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.

Photo: JPI

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.
