Everyone is waiting to see the debut of Chrishell Stause in her new soap role on Days of our Lives come Mid-August.  While Chrishell is still sworn to secrecy to not reveal much of her new Salem alter-ego, it is difficult not to, especially since the beautiful actress had been taping for a few months now at the NBC soap!

On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman caught up with Chrishell at the 40th Annual Daytime Emmy Creative Arts Awards a few weekends ago for this video interview, where we ask the former All My Children star about what she can tell us about her new role on DAYS!

Stause relates:  “I can give you a little bit.  So here is what I am allowed to say … she works in a hospital. She has a big secret.  I work a lot with Galen Gering (Rafe) and Lauren Koslow (Kate), who I love.  I can say she is very opposite of Amanda on All My Children.  So I am playing something completely different!”

At the Creative Arts Emmys, The Young and the Restless current casting director, Judy Blye Wilson won for Casting Direction,  Chrishell took a moment in our interview to honor her, and relieve her casting process of getting her first soap role on AMC through Judy, who was at that time casting the ABC soap.  And, that Judy was also responsible for Chrishell’s BFF, Y&R’s Melissa Claire Egan landing her soap roles as well!

Stause recalled, “Do I remember? Of course I remember.  I am from Kentucky!  So is Judy Blye Wilson, and so we bonded on that.  You have to remember, this is the first time I had gone through the audition process, but I had gone through a lot of rejection before that.   So, I was thinking, ‘free trip to New York’, whatever.  But Judy was so lovely, and made me feel special the whole time.  She told me later she always had her eye on me.”

In addition Chrishell shares her thoughts on the revival of All My Children, working with former co-star, Ricky Paull Golden (Ex-Jake, AMC, now Jesse, B&B) and more!

Watch the video interview below and let us know what you think Chrishell’s role will be on DAYS? And, if you are excited to see her back on daytime!

Rafe’s physical therapist. Spoiler in the Rafe/Kate romance.

I hope Days is not setting themselves up by making such a big deal by keeping her role a secret for so long. I have seen shows play up so called secrets and they end up being a total letdown. for Day’s sake I hope they know what they are doing because we all know viewers will not have a problem voicing their disappointments.

I loved Chrishell on AMC and I wish that she was part of the online reboot, which has been excellent. But I’m really looking forward to seeing her on Days. She’s not only a gorgeous young woman, but also a very talented actress.

Hot Women – HOT MEN. why we watch Serial. and LOVE.

I think there is a lot of storyline if she was indeed Cassie. We would all need to forget how Cassie and Rex were introduced on the show, but could add a whole new dimension to Kate. Since Billie and Austin’s return was not well-received, I would like to see Rex and Cassie come back. I also wish Brandon Beemer (Shawn-Douglas) and Belle would come back. Maybe Jen Lilly is the new Belle?

OMG I love her!!!! I hope she’s the new Cassie Brady!!!!!!!!!!

I hope she is the new Cassie too. That would give so much potential for storyline, especially if she hooks up with Rafe….who has dated both her mom (Kate) AND her TWO of her sisters….(Carrie and Sami)…I mean seriously, Days…can we say drama??

I will continue watching no matter who she plays. DAYS is not a YawneR.

It’s obvious that she’s Cassie and that she’s also Rafe’s physical therapist — since she’s Kate’s daughter and Sami’s sister that would be the logical Days thing to do.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?
