I won’t get too excited about this, look at what the casting department brought us with the teen set. Nightmare.

Seems like Days has near a whole new cast…
I see someone coming or going, often..

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

She is either an ex girlfriend of Rafe or maybe the daughter of Deimos..maybe both…i love the diversity here but i would like to see more Paul…and what happened to Maxine?-i liked her too.

Hi, Jummy,
If ‘Bianca’ is Deimos’s daughter, then her mother must be Hispanic because she does not look Greek, at all. But, as I always say, anything is possible…..look at Luca over at Y&R. He does not have the look of a Spaniard.
I suppose she must have familial, or friendship ties to someone in Salem. Isn’t that the way it works? She is so pretty….she will be placed smack in the middle of some kind of cat-fight-envy.
I was also thinking that her appearance may have nothing to do with family? Perhaps, she is in Salem to represent some couturier’s name; or as a designer model come to work for Theresa, Nicole and Kate (BASIC BLACK). Later, my friend.

She does look like a model…so you could be right.

Another one of Eddie’ daughters? Wives? How about Rafe’s ex? Anything or anyone to put a wedge between Rafe and Hope works for me.

Hey, CeeCee…I hear ya’!!!!! More and more, watching Rafe and Hope even interacting with each other is more effective than A-N-Y sleeping pill…LOL!!!!! For me, it’s like YAWN-VILLE all the way…MORE LOL!!!!! Truly lame.

Later, my friend. P-e-a-c-e.

Hello, there,
This woman is supposedly a grandmother. Her escapades are indicative of a juvenile. And, I do not buy this arduous and intrepid search for revenge. She should have known better than to think that Bo, the love of her life, and vice versa, would not have just up and left, and not come back. Neither do I find feasible that Bo would ask Rafe to look after Hope. I said this before, Rafe and Bo barely knew each other; plus, Hope has plenty of relatives and close friends on both sides, to have assumed such a responsibility. She is a darned adult, for Petey sake….there are plenty of women whose husbands have left or died. I can understand emotional support, but to forge on and act outside the law as an accomplice is stupid fora a cop. Not that Stefano did not deserve it; but Hope needs mental help. Rafe cannot see this? A well-trained detective. Bah!!!! Lol. Bo wasn’t even her husband….so, all contrived. If the soap gods wanted Rafe and Hope together, they could have achieved that goal another way…..one that made more sense. Is it just me that feels this way? If that is the case, someone, please make me understand the error of my ways and set me straight. Lol. Later, Jay.

jaybird369

CeeCee…I feel the same way as you do. Yes. To me, Rafe and Hope have ZERO chemistry together!!!!! For me, it’s like MAKE IT STOP MAKE IT STOP MAKE IT STOP!!!!! TOTAL BLECH ALL THE WAY!!!!!!

Take care, CeeCee. P-e-a-c-e.

She actually speaks good English, has no Colombian accent! She’s been in many Latin soap operas and she’s an amazing actress… Colombia has many beautiful women and she happens to be one of them.

I just wonder why her name isn’t Blanca? Bianca is an Italian name. It would be more fitting, si? They did the same at Y&R. Luca Santori? That’s as an Italian name as one can get….not, Spaniard.
If she is bound to stay on board, I just hope her acting is as good as her looks, 4ever.

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

Her name is Blanca, CeeCee. Yahoo TV made the error which MFS must have trusted to be fact.

It’s a fact that I knew Bianca had to be Italian because of the Tate-LaBianca murders…Horrible way to learn things.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Oh, ok, 4ever. The names do mean the same thing, “White”…. Also, the French translation is “Blanche”….very similar languages. I was actually trying to make the point that if the character is purported to be Hispanic, then, the name should match to avoid confusion. Thanks and later, my friend.

So another new character???? what the what??? who is writing this show..it’s really taken a turn around….you have characters to write for, ex. Abe and his new daughter….Paul…these characters are at least tied to long time family and longtime characters….how bout getting back to “family” oriented stories????? get rid of Phillip and Belle…story not working…..lose Ava….please update Patch’s look….and stop focusing so much on the teens that cannot act and cannot carry a story…..at least nobody died this week…hahaha…

CeeCee

That’s funny, Scott…you made me chuckle.

I know…they have talented actors who play Justin, Adrienne and Lucas but cant write for them or rarely even show them but gives stories to newbies…they wont make a new soap but find ways to make old ones into new ones.

DAYS currently has so much going on and many characters who don’t have story, so why do they feel the need to bring on more newbies? In general, I like new characters who have ties to core families, but we already have characters like Lucas, Adrienne, Justin, Abe and Lani who don’t have story.

The new teen set is taking up lots of screen time and most of them cannot act, nor carry the show’s story. It’s so odd watching Ciara, Claire, etc. party and whine about things and then jumping to scenes with long-time characters and actors who can actually act. I mean, on the days of Daniel’s death story, we had the teen scene playing truth or dare for god sake!

Moreover, the show has lost stellar actors like Daniel Cosgrove, Kassie DePaiva, Greg Vaughan (and others who didn’t leave of their own volition) to make room for these newbies. And there are still new characters to be introduced! Real Andrews, Alla Korot and Jordi Vilasuso have yet to make their debuts, Vincent Irizzary was just introduced, and so many characters have been brought back, like Shawn, Belle, Philip, Chloe, etc.

It just seems like there’s way too much going on for DAYS to add more new characters to its seemingly never ending cast.

Too many newbies Days, I know it’s to help budget but it’s going to suck with so many newbies and killing so many off.

Look forward to seeing her on. Glad Days is bringing in a more multi-cultural cast. They should have more black actors as well. Of course, they should bring back gay storylines too!

DAYS’ Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes On Doug and Julie’s Emotional Scenes: “We Didn’t Have To Act Them. The Love Between Us Played Them For Us.”

If you have been witnessing this week’s episodes of NBC’s Days of our Lives, you know that Julie suffered a massive heart attack that has rocked Doug to his core, and has made the once invincible Julie devastated that she may not survive this medical crisis to continue her enduring love with her husband.

The heart attack which came about after Julie minced words with Gabi (Camila Banus), has given veteran stars and Lifetime Achievement Daytime Emmy Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes, some emotional and heartfelt material to play.  As everyone knows, the popular duo has been married in real-life for decades.

On their official Twitter handle DaysHayes, the couple shared this tweet to their followers: “Those scenes between Doug and Hope, and the ones between Doug and Julie were so beautifully written, we didn’t have to act them. The love between us played them for us. Thank you, Ron!”

Of course, Bill and Susan were referencing Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati for this storyline and giving them these impactful scenes to play which mean so much to them and the longtime DAYS viewing audience.

So, what have you thought about the recent Doug and Julie scenes, since Julie suffered a heart attack?  What do you think of giving vets like Bill and Susan the ball in this storyline? Comment below.
