DAYS’ Kate Mansi Delivers The ‘Power Performance Of The Week’

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

This week was a whirlwind for the character of Abigail Deveraux (Kate Mansi) on Days of our Lives.  On Christmas Eve, she shows up at the annual Christmas Ornament hanging at the Hortons with her daughter, Charlotte in tow.  When she gets there, she has a few choice words for her mother, Jennifer (Melissa Reeves).

A hurt and angered Abby lets her mom have it for not believing in her sanity in a gut-wrenching moment played to perfection by Kate Mansi.  Coming in to the scene like a firecracker ready to explode, she let out the emotions of how her own family would not stand by her when she was being gas-lighted by Gabi (Camila Banus), and yet even with that, no one still believed her.  (She still had no hard evidence to proof that she was telling the truth, but that was just around the corner!)

In addition, Mansi was pretending to be “Gabby” with a Y, the alter that fell for Stefan (Tyler Christopher) in an effort to get her freedom, and she did it.  She hands the guy divorce papers as a Christmas present, throws off her wig, shocking him that he was the one being played.   She is not sick.  She is herself, Abigail and she is leaving him and taking their baby with her.

Later, when Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) remembers that she saw the DNA results proving that Chad (Billy Flynn) is the father of Charlotte, not Stefan, it is a triumphant moment for Abigail, yet a stinger, because she realizes the lengths her supposed “friend” Gabi went to for her revenge plot against her.  Eventually, Abby reunites Charlotte with her real bio-dad, Chad.  And for good measure, after the truth is finally out, and Abigail proves that she is of sound mind and body, she clocks Gabi for her deception right in front of Chad.

With the levels of emotion illustrating the character’s inner-strength, and the depth in her work, MFTV names Kate Mansi the last week of 2018’s, “Power Performance of the Week.”

Let us know what you thought of Kate’s performance, what was your favorite moment in it, and how the week unraveled for Abby, Gsbi, Stefan, Chad, Jennifer, and Julie in the comment section below.

Kate Mansi is just as good as Marci Miller if not better for a soap, just different. I am a newish viewer of the show and only saw Kate’s original run in small does. She always stood out to me and still has that “it” soap factor to me.

You bet, Patrick…..Kassie is IT–and Kate. Oh, my Lord….just caught up!! I am in seventh heaven with these two! Yeeeessss!! And, I can definitely see Eve with Rafe—–anyone other than Hope. I even preferred him with Kate ( Lauren Koslow). I don’t know about Hack and Eve, though…..sort of disgusting. You know? She seduced JJ—-he was a kid. Eve is a seductress. Jack and Jenny ( as much as I am not a fan, belong together. Jack needs to remember so that he can make a choice, if he is to remain in Salem. The same goes for Justin, Patrick.… Read more »

Bobbie, I am disappointed that Abby will not make Gabi pay for everything she has done to her and her marriage and family. What a big letdown, after all these terrible stressful months.

I like Kate however a friend of mine and myself miss Marci. I am so glad though that Gabby got hers. I hope she rots in hell. Nice job Kate with letting Gabby have it. Everyone thinks just because Abby has a mental illness she is weak, far from it. Having a mental illness is no picnic believe me I should know.I live with four of them. People need to realize just because someone has a mental illness doesnt make them crazy or dangerous.It seems to me the one who is dangerous here is Gabby.I know she is out for… Read more »

Kate Mansi did a masterful job with those scenes. The look of satisfaction and her vocal tone when Abby revealed to Stefan that he had been played were just wonderful. During the confrontation with her mother, you felt Abby’s rage, hurt and betrayal. The final showdown with Gabi was terrific. I loved when Abby belted her. Throughout each scene, Kate was great portraying Abby’s anger, sense of betrayal, and inner strength. Hats off to her and to Billy Flynn, Camila Banus and Tyler Christopher.

Days fans have been so lucky this year to be treated to two exceptional actresses both in the role of Abigail
Kate was on fire and brought the backbone to the character while Marci was more soulful and tender. While Kate excels during her confrontations with Gabbi and Stefan , I do wish Marci could ve been portraying during the reveal to Chad. Just saying!…
But what a problem to have! Lol.
Love Chabby and Kate hasnt missed a beat while away!

Right, Damien….I had almost forgotten how superlative Kate Mansi truly is. She gave it the old one-two punch!!
I had gotten used to Marci, after a very long period of time. However, I’d be lying if I were not happy Kate’s back!! Yeayyyy!!

I loved what Marci brought to the role of Abigail and enjoyed her time on the show immensely. But despite my reservations about having Kate return to the role (I enjoyed her as well, but she and Marci have different acting styles), I am actually enjoying the hell out of her return. I think a lot of it has to do with the history between those two characters and actresses, and Kate does know how to bring a certain soap opera touch to Abigail, whereas Marci was much more reality grounded. Truth is, I love both of their portrayals for… Read more »

Tyler Christopher was my power performance of the week.

I was totally invested in Marci Miller’s Abigail but find Kate Mansi very cold and unsympathetic in the role.

Kate Mansi definitely deserves this title, she owned last week! Gabi serving Stefan divorce papers and delivering that line ending in “you son of a bitch” perfectly to letting Gabi, Chad her and her mother have it!

Her scenes with her father, Jack today were really great also.

I was finally getting used to Marci, except for her wardrobe, and now Kate is back, so I am trying to remember how much I liked her as Abby. I am so glad she is keeping Chad at arm’s length for now. He was a real jerk through this whole SL.

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.
