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 SO needs a spin off called Daze of Our Lives!!!!!!! There’s your target demographic NBC!!!

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.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
