I don’t think I have seen anything she is done but she is beautiful and will make a great Abby.

AGREED. And, I also feel your disappointment. I hear you. All of you!!
Besides Underwood, there are so many other actresses who could have definitely fit the bill.
However, as is my nature, i’d like to give anyone a shot. Then, critique…LOL.

I haven’t seen her in any other roles either, so I hope she will make a great Abigail, BUT, will anyone else notice the new Abbey has BLUE EYES???

I am very disappointed they didn’t get Brittany Underwood. You’d think TPTB would want someone with daytime experience to take on this critical role. But, welcome and the very best of luck to Marci Miller.

Just because you’ve got experience in daytime does not mean you are qualified for the part, and IMHO, Brittany is not experienced or qualified enough for the demand of Abigail Deveraux. I have a feeling Marci Miller is going to be great!

Me too and she is working that vamp look.. She looks a bit like Elizabeth Hendickson Chloe on Y&R.. and more like a better replacement for Jen Lilley

Marci Miller more than likely went through several screen tests before being chosen for the role. I am going to give her the benefit of the doubt until I see how she does.

We’ll see. I was never a fan of Mansi in the role anyway. Nor am I a fan of the characters of Jennifer, Abigail, or JJ. Definitely willing to give Marci a chance.

No, no, no, no. Kate please come back you’re the best!
BRING BACK KATE MANSI!

Kate Mansi has made her decision. She doesn’t want to be type cast. In Hollywood, for some reason, it’s very difficult for actors in daytime to get cast in films. There’s a hierarchy in the industry; first is film, second is mainstream television and in third place is daytime.

She chose to vacate the role – to pursue other avenues. Whoever this new gal is she will have some big shoes to fill.

Great another newbie, lol. Brittany Underwood ex Langston OLTL should be the new Abigail. Good luck to the new actress, because she will need it. Days is a big, mess right now.

One small problem, Brittany Underwood was not considered.

Celia
Guest

Lol, Susan. I don’t think anyone said Underwood was considered. But, many of us suggested she’d be perfect for the role. My personal preferences were, actually, the original Colleen on Y&R, Lyndsy Fonseca or Kelley Missal of OLTL (Dani).

have to pray to the soap gods… on this

” I pray…. just pray… that she can ACT !

I pray… just pray… that she has chemistry with Billy Flynn”

Amen

ie: couldn’t find any thing… to show… for her work… except for the indie preview “dog bowl”

she films nice…

I so want this to work….

Billy Flynn is Days Leading Man

I do not know what to think….from the pose/expression she looks like she would be a little bit villainy-maybe a Teressa replacement…but she is Abby…we will see this fall how she fits with Billy/Chad…if he decides to ever leave i think it would be too hard to replace him-he so owns that role now…jmho!!!

I would love for Billy Flynn to leave. I have never liked him as Chad.

She’s beautiful, but can she act? We don’t need another Ciara!

Shell

Speaking of Ciara. I am not a fan of the Ciara/Chad storyline. I find it creepy. I’m sad to read the new Abigail won’t debut until the fall. I was hoping it would be soon so she could put Ciara in her place. I don’t think I can stomach seeing a long, drawn out romance emerge between Chad and Ciara. I’m not sure I will keep watching Days.

Celia
Guest
Celia

I know, Shell. Ciara is barely out of diapers… It seems like yesterday that she was what? Eight? LOL.
I think it’s sick. Other than the fact that she’s still a kid, one would think that after such a traumatic ordeal such as rape, any intimacy would be repelling….like a leper’s touch. What are these writers thinking?

Yes, bad move re Chase and Ciara–W-A-Y too soon, anyway!

Carissa

Yes, I so agree! Chad and Ciara story is ridiculous. There has been too many of those back when Abby first started and she thought she lived Austin. Abby and ejs affair, and the last one was jj and eve. We don’t need another one of those !!

I have said from day one, when TPTB recast cute little Chase and Ciara, that
nu-Ciara did not have the skillset for this role. Given the current storyline, and the seriousness of the topic, I think its even more apparent. There was no reason to recast the smaller generation of kids. The teenage scene is not cutting it for this (past) viewer and I no longer DVR the show. The acting is awful and the storylines are beyond dreadful.

I agree, I can no longer support and defend Days anymore. And my favorite actors keep leaving it too and they only get vets back for one or a few episodes now because they can’t afford it.

She is pretty, but can she act? Let’s give her a chance. If she fails, I can play the role of Abigail. I will put on a wig, high heels and make up lol. I am very sexy, with a smooth body, very passable as a woman. I am Italian and do drag shows part time. I have full lips, with a nice smile. Call me Days, if you need me .

Mary SF

It is hard to judge by just a photo— she looks a bit too old for the role and too exotic looking to be the girl next door type that Abby was, but I am willingly to give her a shot. I don’t care if she doesn’t have daytime experience because daytime is getting a bit incestuous with the same big names hopping from one show to the next, so I am glad to see some new blood come onto the scene, yet will reserve final judgement once I see her in the role.

After Thursday’s episode, I do not think Ciara and Chad will have a romance. She mighty go fatal attraction on him!!! But- hey, that’s what he gets for moving the teenager in the house at break neck speed. Can you tell I am disappointed in that story? Anyway!! I am excited! She appears cute and beautiful. Her reel shows talent. It was a great run with mansi but I say welcome to the crazy world of Salem miss Miller. They obviously took their sweet time with the casting so I think she and mr. Flynn will be magic together.

well it took the casting people a long time to find her… This will say a lot about them if she is the right actress. Glad they did not rush it and waited for the right one. Time will tell. .lots of pressure on these folks who hired her..

I am very disappointed, I love days but Kate mansi made Abby and is Abby the character won’t be the same without her , the shoes of Abby cannot be filled by anyone but Kate mansi! If she can’t play it, Abby’s character would be better off getting killed off! First ej, Sami , and now Abby . I feel like this could ruin days of our lives forever! ☹️

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.
