DAYS Casting New Role Of "Shauna"! Who Would You Suggest To Play The Part?

New today via Soap Opera Digest has that NBC’s Days of our Lives is looking to add another contract player to their canvas!

This time its for the character of Shauna and the casting breakdown reads as follows:  “Seeking a gorgeous, experienced African-American actress in her early 30s to play the contract role of Shauna, who is described ‘upscale, professional confident and sexy.  Her beauty is only matched by her intelligence and heart.  She is forthcoming and authentic and captivates wherever she goes.”‘

So, now we ask you, who would you suggest to the DAYS casting director that could fill this role?  Anybody in daytime or primetime who you have loved from their previous work that could fit the bill?

And, what storyline do you think Shauna will become involved with? Or, who might she romantically become involved with in Salem?  Share your thoughts with us in the comment section below!

Why do these casting calls always sound like they were written by a romance novelist? Basically ever role is for a good looking actor who can memorize their lines and be on camera in their underwear.

LoL yeah that’s pretty much the prerequisition for any of
these roles ~

Sorry, I meant to write that is the standard prerequisite for any of these roles. Of course, the actors also have to be able to maintain that “confused” or “bewildered” look just as the show fades to a commercial….

Abe and Roman too old…Lucas is somewhat involed with Sheryl…Brady maybe…Tad, J.J., and Rory too young…Sonny and Will highly unlikely…i guess she’ll be Liams estranged wife or Aidens maybe??? Renee Goldsbury would be nice even if she’s in her early 40s…she can play the part!!! any chance shell be Maxines daughter or daughter in law…maybe Cameron returns to town with a wife???

Yes jimh, you may recall there was a casting call for an African American Male. I hope they’re tied to the Grant family! I’m loving the scenes with Abe and Maxin!!!

No one. I’d rather they bring back a former cast member and character than keep creating new ones to join the cast.

Would it be OK with you if the new characters are tied to the history of DAYS? I would have loved to see DAYS in the mid 1970’s! There should be justice for the Grant family. With DAYS big anniversary fast approaching, I hope that becomes a reality!

I’m sure longtime viewers that turned against the Grant family because of the interracial storyline would welcome them back.

Times have changed. Peoples views are changing. DAYS can make it happen!!!

I enjoyed the Grant family…Tina Andrews who played Valerie was awesome and shouldve became a superstar in that role…Days was at its best in the 70s!!!

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Ehh. I still would rather a former cast member and character return than someone new already. There are enough families on the show; they barely show Abe anymore, so what makes you think they’ll show this woman, too?

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I wish that too…but they do need an occasional newbie and a new family to refreshen the show…hope when Eve returns(i still wish it was Charlotte Ross but…) she turns out to be mother of Ben and Jordan…newbies should have some ties to the shows past!!!

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

I think Eve is a bit too young to be the mother of Ben and Jordan, especially with Kassie in the role.

Brook Kerr (ex Whitney) she was good on Passions.

Awesome to see DAYS adding more diversity to the canvas if the casting call is correct..How about Daphne Duplaix..She played Rachel @ OLTL for about a year or so..She has the upscale sexy lady look and she is a very good actress!

she also played valerie on passions, she would be good too

I am hoping there are planning on expanding the role of nurse Maxine and this will be her daughter or niece. The show does need to beef up their Africa American presence on screen. They had a character similar to the one they are casting for in Lexie— so it is refreshing they are trying to bring back those qualities in another character– unless this is a red herring and they are planning on bringing Lexie back from the dead. Stefano has done it so many times I am sure the writers could figure out a way to explain it.… Read more »

IA. But I hope it’s Lexie and they should just hire back Renee Jones in the role because she is gravely missed!

I miss Renee/Lexie too, but I think it’s time that the soaps stop having back from the dead plots. I do think it was a mistake to kill Lexie off. The big news is DAYS could have been reading our posts and are now responding to our requests for more African Americans!

SAL STOWERS did some impressive work on the re-boot of ALL MY CHILDREN
as the distressed daughter of Dr. Angela Hubbard and Jesse Hubbard. I am sure she is only in her twenties but I think she could grow with the role.

Nothing personal but Brooke was a terrible actress on Passions.
And I completely agree 100% it is time to bring Shawn,Belle And Claire back to Days.
NO please don’t bring back Kristen that storyline went on so long it is nice to have a break from her for awhile,

I am hoping they are Maxine’s family. Maxine needs to be put on contract. How about Meagan Good? Nia Long is too old sadly!

Angela

As far as Megan Good. Seriously they are looking for classy not trashy.

Sounds like a recast of Lexie.

Not that I think it’s “Lexie,” but the description sounds like Lexie to me.

I doubt they’d re-cast and resurrect Lexie, but it’s clearly someone who might be a match for Abe, who has had zero airtime.

Angela

Have you watched Days lately? Abe is definitely hooking up with Maxine.
I miss Renee but seriously I think fans are done with the whole resurrecting people from the dead.

On soaps and TV shows actors can play characters who are older or younger they are.So even though DOOL is looking for actresses in their younger 30s they might take someone who is younger or older too if it’s the right actress.As for who could be casted in the role i could see Brook Kerr,Sal Stowers,Annie Llonzel(ex-Maya.GH) or Daphne Duplaix.

Angela
Guest
Angela

No Annie Ilonzel is 30 but she looks to old for the role there asking for.
But I do like your other suggestions, especially Saleisha Stowers.
That girl has got some talent going on. 🙂

I know it won’t be but the casting call sounds very much like Lexie. Renee Jones is a gifted actress and Lexie was always one of my favourites. I was very sad when she died.

I think Renee Goldsberry or Tika Sumpter would be good; I liked them on OLTL.

I don’t think it’s Lexie.They are looking for late 20 early 30s.Lexie is late 40s.Renee Jones herself is 55.

Daphne DuPlaix. She’s a very gifted actress and she’s beautiful. She would be a terrific addition to DAYS .

NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell Says Peacock Hit 18M Paid Subscribers Up From 15M In September

On Monday, during a webcast session at the UBS TMT investors conference, NBC Universal CEO, Jeff Shell shared that the NBCUniversal streaming service, Peacock has hit 18 million paid subscribers.

Interestingly, that is an uptick of 3 million paid subscribers since the end of September of this year, where the service had 15 million.

As soap fans know, Days of our Lives debuted exclusively in its new home on Peacock on September 12th, and viewers who watched on linear TV and NBC had to switch modes and pay-in for a subscription to watch the show.  However, there has been no quantifying data released on just how well DAYS is performing on the platform.

In terms of its sustainability and its ad-supported streaming platform, Shell added: “We were late coming into streaming, but we clearly chose the right business model.”  Shell noted that this strategy has helped offset declines in linear TV revenues, and a worsening advertising market.

The CEO went to explain: “We believe in the premium video ad-supported, dual revenue stream essential broadcast and cable on streaming, driven by key programming.” Shell also shared that declines in cable subscribers is putting pressure on affiliate fees and advertising rates, so it’s becoming more important than ever for Peacock revenues to offset falling cable TV revenues and that the TV ad business is “definitely getting worse.”

So, what do you think of the uptick of subscribers to Peacock since September? Is Days of our Lives a key player in this? Have you gotten use to watching your favorite soap on the streaming platform? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
