Now the beautiful star has posted an incredibly star-studded Instagram pic from the make-up room at the NBC soap opera featuring returning favorites: Jason Cook (Shawn-Douglas), Thaao Penghlis (Tony), and Stephen Nichols (Patch) in their first group photo (that we know of) along with cast members: Galen Gering (Rafe), Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie), Rob Scott Wilson (Ben), Daniel Cosgrove (Aiden), Greg Vaughan (Eric), Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) and Mary Beth Evans (Kayla).

Alfonso, who has been posting pics to add to the upcoming excitement coming this fall, noted this pic posted late Thursday with the message, “Thought I’d share another, Yup we love being apart @nbcdays )) We’re all smiling, laughing and having a ball !;)))#days50 , #Grateful everyday”

Rory is such a fascinating character, as is Bev. Alison Paige plays Bev on DAYS, and she’s fantastic.

I wish GH would secure this talented actress, and have Alison take over the role of Kiki Jerome. Kiki must be recasted ASAP! Alison Paige would be perfect for the role.

This picture illustrates the excitement and electricity in the air at DOOL. The cast evidently has a fondness for one another.

Seeing Galen Gering makes me beseech the writers: please include storyline for Rafe. Please give him something to do already!

All in good time. Gabby will return, and it’s rumored that the A. Martinez character will be Rafe & Gabby’s father. Perhaps, there’s truth to that rumor. Otherwise, there always seems to be this hotness and chemistry that remains between Rafe & Kate!

If that’s the Days we’ll get to see after August, I’m finally done with this show!!! Not interested in the “big stars” from the 80s and I don’t know anyone in the key demos who is. There are enough vets on the show that just have to be used the right way, we don’t need any more of them. I’ve been watching since 2010 for Will and Sonny, and now Paul and Sonny. The new writers have no clue what younger viewers want to see, so they’re throwing the most successful storyline under the bus. Incredible ignorance!!

What exactly do younger viewers want to see? How are they throwing the Sonny/Will/Paul storyline under the bus? It’s front and center. What more do you want? The younger viewers are not the only demographics that soaps need to please. I am a longtime viewer of DAYS (since episode one) and I AM a KEY DEMO regardless of what you believe! You are already talking about bailing on the show if in your words DAYS brings back the big stars of the 80’s. First, do you even know who the big stars on DAYS were in the 80’s? Evidently you… Read more »

This is an anniversary year, of course they are going to revisit the past and the rich history of the show- that is what anniversary years are about. I seriously doubt that means they are going to dump all their present day characters and stories. There should be room for the new and old on this year to celebrate all things DAYS.

Its just all in celebration of the shows 50th…like a family reunion!…its not like the show is dropping the Will/Sonny/Paul characters and replacing them with former stars…most are making guests appearances…Days isnt abandoning the storyline but Freddie Smith is leaving his role as Sonny so they either will take it in a different direction or recast Sonny…the Will/Sonny/Paul triangle is a good storyline but it isnt the only one…Days isnt just about those three characters…its about multiple characters of different generations…if you just want youth the Disney and Nick channels is the best place to tune in!!! Just a friendly… Read more »

You just threw everyone pictured under the bus. Then you ran over them and the viewers of the 80’s.

There is plenty room for everyone. This is just a picture of performers on that particular work day.

2010??? The show started in 1965…50 years of viewers passing the show down to viewers..You started watching FIVE…FIVE…FIVE years ago. How on earth do you know what viewers want to see?? Though this may come as a surprise..not all young viewers want to see that relationship played out..luckily they let it play out and didn’t listen to people like you…you like that story and want to see more of them..more what?? What more stories like that?? Think before you type.

So happy to finally see Days doing what they did best, utilize all cast members. Glad to see Patch, Tony/Andre, Shawn all coming back. Those were the Days of great story lines not focused on one demographic but all. Condos to the new writers if this is the way they are heading. Also Rafe needs a story line. The old writers buried him and now it is his turn to shine once again.

Where is Bo Brady? They need him in all of this – I like that DAYS is going back to the 80’s cast, back then it was awesome. They need the original Roman Brady played by Wayne Northrop as well as LeAnn Hunley who played Anna DiMera, she was awesome on the show.

UPDATED:  According to Deadline  the cast and crew of NBC’s Days of our Lives will actually be returning tomorrow, October 20th to begin taping ahead of schedule after a positive Covid-19 test shut production down originally scheduled for two weeks.

The outlet cited, “Following a thorough investigation including contact tracing, quarantines, testing, and a deep cleaning of the studio, the health and safety experts at Days of our Lives have determined that it was safe to return to production before the end of the two-week period. As a result, the show will be back on set tomorrow Oct 20.”

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.

James Scott Comments: “I Will Never. Never. Never. Never. Never, Go Back to Hollywood Let Alone DOOL”

Those hoping that finally James Scott would return to his signature daytime soap role of EJ DiMera on Days of our Lives, now that Alison Sweeney is on her way back to the show this fall for a longer run as Sami, can count those hopes now dashed and for good.

In a post on his Instagram account for his meditation and contemplations Sunday morning Zoom series and website, Scott posed with Deepak Chopra.  When a fans posted a comment in the IG account how they miss him on DAYS and to come back with Sami, James replied, “Hi – thanks for joining me here. Please know that I will never. Never. Never. Never. Never. Go back to Hollywood let alone DOOL. There is notbing interesting there for me. J”

Fan favorite James Scott, who has been MIA from the acting profession for awhile now is running The Whisper Within – and as detailed by the website, Scott explains how he left acting to be more involved with meditation and helping others find inner-peace – “In 2014, after a successful career in the entertainment industry, I found myself with everything and nothing.  I had money, celebrity, and status and the grief to match it. I had worked tirelessly for the better part of two decades to attain wealth and validation, yet no external thing could touch the emptiness I felt and the worthlessness I experienced.  I knew that something unknown wished to be known—something I could feel only through its apparent absence. In my despair and depression, I faced a simple choice: to change my lived experience or to end it. One felt impossible; the other easy I had already spent so much time reading self-help books, attending workshops and retreats, drinking concoctions with shamans, exploring tantra and abstaining from sex all together, dancing and singing, and many more practices, which had done little or nothing to abate the loneliness.

 

Desperate and in despair, still seeking, still suffering, I found my way to an Indian meditation center. I went for a week and stayed for a year. It was there in my own reflection that I found the teacher I had been seeking silently waiting to be known. At first, there was rage and anger, but eventually the intensity of the fire burned low and sadness took its place. I cried and cried until I cried myself empty and something new arose: beneath it all, I discovered a newfound peace. Like a fragrance arising from deep within, I heard the sound of the silence that can never be spoken: the eternal wisdom of the whisper within.  To live from this place is my practice and my path. To inspire others to do the same is my purpose.”

So, what do you think about James’ comments and path that he has now gone down for his life?  Do you think its time for DAYS to finally re-cast EJ? Comment below.
