Days of our Lives had made the news this morning with some key casting changes.  According to Soap Opera Digest, the soap news source is reporting that Lindsay Hartley has been let-go in the role of Arianna.  Since the soap tapes well in advance,  she will air into fall.

Next, Ty Treadway last seen as  the soap gabfest host on SOAPnet’s Soap Talk, and for his roles on One Life to Live as Colin and Troy McGiver, will head to DAYS to play Dr. Jason Walters.  Ty is taping in August, and is slated to hit the airwaves in key episodes in the fall.

Not familiar with her work on DAYS, but I know her from PASSIONS and know she is a great actress. I think that OLTL should snag her if Amanda Setton is not intent on returning to OLTL anytime soon. I can picture Lindsay in the role of Kim and I think she would do an amazing job! Plus, it would give OLTL a reason to have Clint on more…he has been MIA for far too long.

I am shocked with this sudden news! Lindsay is a powerhouse of an actress and kept numerous fans glued to the screen during her 9 year Passions run. The only reason I dove back into Days was for her joining the cast. I know Lindsay will find the perfect role soon, so her fans will patiently wait for the right decision.
After her last episode I will no longer tune in, there you have it TPTB.

Lindsey is never going to get her man, Ethan. alius Brady Black. This romance want see an end if you FIRE her. She,s a great actress. Boo to you for taking her off.

My first day back after 3 years off from DOOL was Lindsay’s first day. Her last day will be my last day. I don’t think TPTB can see what’s in front of them. EJ-Arianna were cute together, and could have made a nice little couple for a while. Instead we have Rafe and Sami getting back together around Labor Day and then what…..EJ sits home alone playing chess?? There isn’t another woman on DOOL who works with him.

This is terrible news. I started back watching when Lindsay came on, and now she’s leaving after just a year! She’s one of the best actresses on daytime, I hope another soap like General Hospital snags her up soon. This might make me quit watching Days after she leaves. Maybe if they bring Jack and Jennifer back I MIGHT stick around…

Are you kidding Lindsay got fired from Days, What a lousy move, If she didn’t see eye to
eye with Brady you should have gotten a new boyfriend for her. Get rid of Nicole she
is obnoxious,If it weren’t for Galen Gering I would never watch the show again, Also tell Allison Sweeney to stop wining and screaming all the time She does not know a goodf
thing when it is right in front of her,

I am mad beyond belief…Never really watched days until LH arrive. I have never seen such incompentence on a soap in my life. I totally enjoyed ej and ari. I thought it would have beautiful see JS as a heartthrob. But the brainiac kept every story line long as hell and they just ruin it for me. Her last day will be mine.

I was actually very shocked when i heard the news..LH is such a wonderful actress and I think Days is making a big mistake letting her go. I hope she gets snagged by another (smarter) soap. I only started watching Days when she came on and loved the idea of her and Ej as a couple..they have such chemistry..her last day will also be mine. She is a great actress and I wish her all the best in the future!

Lindsay is a talented actress. But I didnt see a future with her on days of our lives, The writers did a bad job writing her character. Bring Lindsay to General hospital. She can somehow have ties to , Olivia, brooklyn, or maybe even a love interest for Sonny or Johnny. Lindsay is a ver dynamic and captivating. Another idea is that we been hearing alot about the lopez brother. Lindsay character name was theresa lopez fitzerald on Passions. Maybe General Hospital Can use lindsay as a sister of the lopez brothers and she falls inlove with Johnny Zacarah. THey… Read more »

Day’s just makes one mistake after another. I’ve had enought. Lindsay’s last day will be mine too. I’ve been watching Day’s for 42 years. I can’t do it anymore. This is the straw that broke the camels back. I hope one of the smarter soaps pick up Lindsay and do right by her. Dirty rotten shame..

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.
