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.

She’s better than Kirsten Storms.

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
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…

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)
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.

Blake

I agree about Beth Chamberlain!

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)
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)
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

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)
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)
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.

Camille Collins

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)
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 insight into him, give him a storyline of his own and open up and reveal Emily/Rafes love story. I still think Emily was pregnant wth his child at the time of her “supposed” death too. Something Arianna eluded to once. I think Emily is the love of Rafes life and that is why he has never been able to open up to anyone (even Sami) about her. Emily as a therapist would be a much better fit for Rafe, his character, his career, his morals, values and principals.
Rafe and Sami have been a mismatch from day 1. All Sami has done since marrying Rafe is continued on her merry way with all her lies, tricks, plans and schemes. Instead of Rafe pulling her up what has he done? Rafe has just gone along with it all and aided and abetted her crimes. Covered it all up. Rafe has compromised himself and all he holds dear to be with Sami. Sami has rubbed off on Rafe not the vice a versa. Time for Rafe to count his loses and move on I say!
After 7 years I truly believe it has to be Ejami time. They have the family history, they have that undeniable and unquenchable chemistry and spark, and they have the two kids together. Ejami get each other because they are two of a kind,. Sami needs to give it up. Stop thinking of her family and follow her heart and not her head. Never has a truer line been spoken to Sami than the one EJ said to her in October. EJ was straight shooting to why Sami has chosen the men that she had in her life “because it was EASIER, because it was SAFER, because it was EXPECTED.” That is it in a nutshell. Even recently Sami said to her grandmother “Do I need to have my head examined? Everybody in my family hates EJ.” But Carolines wise reply was “The heart wants what the heart wants.” So come on Sami girl let it all go. EJ is the one man who likes the heat and loves you for who you are and doesn’t want you to change a bit. Oh Ejami together creates so much more drama, excitement and fun. Can’t wait. Go Ejami and Ejamily!

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 from hollywood. hollywood loves to proclaim its “liberal” and yet majority of storylines must be told from a white char’s perspective bec hollywood expects that white chars are the “norm” and “ideal” and that hollywood’s mantra is all the world is a stage and yet a white char has to be at the center of that stage for practically every kind of narrative.
hollywood needs to clear the center stage for new perspectives from people of color. Must she be white bec she’s obviously going to get be “revealed” to be beautiful? That’s a yes for hollywood bec they’re abt shaping the societal definitions of beauty. Why do you think women of color like halle berry and beyonce and jennifer lopez get named most beautiful by hollywood? Bec their physical appearance resembles the white beauty standards of hollywood and fashion and the mainstream media. halle is light skinned and part white and obviously got a nose job to make her nose appear more aquiline. beyonce is very light skinned and has more anglo features and often wears blonde weaves and wigs. same with jennifer lopez. hollywood would never name a dark skinned beauty like viola davis who does not have anglo feautures and weras her hair natural bec she does not fit the mold of what hollywood has brainwashed people into thinking of what’s beautiful. it’s abt controlling the culture. If this soap role was ever cast w/ a racial minority actress then she would be of the halle and beyonce and jennifer lopez mold.

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.

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.

Lmao

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 never on their radar. She was never considered for any role. You said I am a hater yet YOU were the one that was quick to point that she would never move! She is always auditioning Texas, Los angels. Texas is not in new York and Los angels is in cali.

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.

All the while, I’ve been so fortunate to have the love and support of the greatest fans in the world. I hope you know how thankful I am to have had you at my side. With that said, the journey continues and I hope to bring you along for the ride. Thanks for the memories Days of our Lives. Like sands through the hourglass… Love Y’all”
