age 20-35 … DAYS : Mary Beth Evans, the lovely Kayla would like some company

CeeCee

Enough of these Aussies, already. Hire an American. We have plenty of ruggedly handsome men right here, in this vast, beautiful country of ours. Think Texas, Montana, the Dakotas….etc.
If Australians can speak with a ‘patched up’ American accent, so can an American affect an Australian one. I don’t get it…look in your own backyard, casting directors!

Let’s go to Days, now…..Am I to believe that Paul is John’s son? I really like that concept…Finally, something meaty for John. He’s not my favorite soap actor, but, now, at least, I will not be as bored or annoyed by him.
How about that Eve. What a bimbo!!!! She’s jealous of JJ and any other girl? Key word here is…wait for it….wait for it….GIRL !!!!!!!! Eve, the dinosaur….the Granny is really off her rocker. I cannot believe this floozy. WOW !!

Timmm

Soaps are big in Australia. I wonder how many Americans are cast on their soaps?

CeeCee
CeeCee

If that is the case, Timmm, where there is an even balance?…..Then, I will eat my words and take everything I wrote back.

Of course Daniel is involved with this…may as well call it ‘Daniel Of Our Lives!’

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Too many newbies…all i like is Paul and his mother…Eve, Paige, Serena, Daniel, Melanie, and Erik can all leave town. Why does this show need Roxanne(she is sort of ok) when it already has Bev…and why cant Paige be seeing Rory, the cool one, instead of TheNewKidOnTheBlock?

Mary SF

I don’t know how this is going to be possible, but the way Paul’s mother reacted to both Marlena and John– I bet my last donut, that John is going to be Paul’s father.

Patrick
Patrick

Perfect : ‘Daniel Of Our Lives!’

darned if you do and darned if you don’t : right?

How is it possible that one “anointed” person is ALL Salem Needs?

like CeeCee said above…. I’m glad as well.. that John Black gets story… and YES! it’s Paul Norita…
I was instantly taken with his mother

I also agree… that watching Eve jealous… surprised me… I’m still not undone by the story… if the writing improves… these two able actors are ready

Mo

What about Bren Foster? 🙂

I guess since B&B and Y&R both have Australians, Days wants to compete. 😉

I’m not necessarily excited. Just want the show to improve.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Compete for what, Mo? Who has more Australians? Seriously? We are swarmed by them……meanwhile, there are starving American actors who are struggling right here in the US of A.

Harry

What is Ingo Rademacher (formerly GH’s Jax) up to these days?

Patrick

I”m thinking they need some male hunk to keep Anne, Theresa, Melanie, and Serena company… add in Kayla

Rebecca1

Australians seem to breed hunks, Patrick. Love the accent…nothing like the real thing…

CeeCee
CeeCee

Theresa is still so ” hung over” Brady, Patrick. So, yeah, a hunky doctor for her would sober her up in more ways than one.
Anne is just too funny to have a guy come around and kill that in-your-face aura surrounding her. If she falls for some man, she will lose all that spunk I love so much and put all her energy toward impressing her love interest.
Serena should take a train, plane or hike back to Llanview.
Melanie has Brady, for the time being…hope he goes back to Theresa and both be united with the baby Kristen stole.

On a different note…did you not love Jenny today? WOW. The tame little kitten has sprung into a tigress. Double WOW. Never knew she had it in her. …..Jenny showed what the power of a mother protecting her “cub” can do. I derived an excessive amount of satisfaction as I watched tiny, little Jennifer Horton on the prowl, finding and ferociously scratching the shrew’s eyes out. You go Jenny !!!!

Tad

I wish they would search for a new Will. I wouldn’t mind if Will had an Aussie accent as long he could act.

Michael
Michael

Yes- I agree Tad- a new Will- one who can ACT woukd be a great improvement. Every single time Guy opens his mouth I cringe. And I really wish Sonny would stop acting like such a pussy. Man up and get angry, upset, etc.- but I’ve had enough of Sonny as ‘victim’.

Patrick
Patrick

ditto

it just boggles the mind that the DAYS production team keep Guy Wilson and Shawn Christian .

they do not ACT

CeeCee
CeeCee

Tell me about it, Patrick. I doubt TPTB will rid themselves of Shawn any time soon. He is one of the lead actors, if not the top male character. I also think that Daniel and Nicole really fit…perhaps because they are a couple in real life? I am waiting with bated breath to finally see “them” bring these two together, finally, without a hitch. I really feel they will be explosive because Nicole has that extra ingredient which helps her male counterpart shine. Let’s see what happens.

Will? He has never worked for me. After all this time, he is still as painfully dull as a toothache. If only drop-dead-gorgeous Chandler would come back! Sigh.
But, we do have Sonny and Paul….love them both.

Timmm

Ingo Rademacher.

He was up for a role on the series back in the early 2000’s, but it fell through.

Since Days is big in the land down under I suspect this is a way to get them involved with the 50th Anniversary of the show– it is a stunt, nothing more, and unless they luck out and find an amazing talent, this guy will last as long as Lexie’s half brother, who I have already forgotten this name- I want to say Cameron is that right? Let’s hope they write him a better story than being a male stripper to pay off medical school loans.

It does seem obvious John is Pauls father…wish he had been Abe’s instead…for John they shouldve brought back his daughter Belle!!!

How do we get Zachary Garred in the running? Loved seeing that Aussie on my screen. Granted it would mean having to start watching Days but if it means ZG onscreen, I’ll do it and I bet I wouldn’t be the only one.

Jeremy

Oh yes, I do miss Zachary as Levi on GH. And, I do think it’s very doubtful that DAYS will consider ZG. I think they are really pushing for an Aussie actor who hasn’t appeared on any other American soap.

I would love to see Bren Foster return to daytime!

Patrick
Patrick

@Mo said the same thing above ! YES… even tho he’s been on DAYS before… they wasted him and never utilized his character
(May 2011 – February 22, 2012) he played Vivian Alamains son… Quinn

RETURN HIM as a new Character, or as Quinn….

my other pick would be Ben Lawson….

Nick D.
Nick D.

Bren was GREAT as Quinn – the most convincingly devlish bad-guy on Days in years. They made a mistake letting him go, imho. Hope they pick someone like that for this new role. The Aussies have charisma to spare (Bren, Ingo, Nathan parsons, etc.)

Side note – Australian … I wonder if he is connected to Tony/Andre? A long lost son?

Tom84
Tom84

It’s a bit ambitious, but it would certainly help Days ratings if they could land a Hemsworth – they’ve all done soaps before!

Even someone like Jonathon Wood, Wade Briggs, Matthew Le Nevez or Conrad Coleby sound like they’d fit the brief! Not sure whether the first two meet the ‘rugged’ criteria but they’ve all proved they’ve got the chops to handle it!

CeeCee
CeeCee

OMG. If one of those Hemsworth brothers would even appear temporarily, I would immediately stop picking on the Aussies. Is there a word that supersedes gorgeous, beautiful, perfection, flawless…..?????

This should go to Nathin Butler, he was gone way too soon from GH

Good choice!

@mar SF. You are right. I had already surmised John being Paul’s father on the previous site. It will be interesting to see the ‘how, when and where’,…..the plot thickens ?????

DAYS’ Christie Clark Shares Coronavirus Health Update

Days of our Lives fans love her as as Carrie Brady, and are often very happy when they find out Christie Clark is back for a visit taping episodes of the NBC soap opera.  But that’s not what’s happening right now.  Right now, we need Christie to get all her strength back.

Clark shared via her Instagram today a health update on her battle with the coronavirus that hit both her and her husband while they have been living in the United Kingdom.

Christie expressed: “Oh my goodness, just starting to feel ok on this end. My husband Tom and I have had coronavirus fairly bad. Not as bad as some, no hospital needed. Hope your all well! I’m sure at this stage you all know of someone with it? When you get it, you can’t call the grandparents for help, cause they will get sick. We know about 10 people in our little circle that have had it. Like clockwork, Day 7,8,&9 were tricky and haven’t been able to taste food for a while. So excited to be in the land of the living again & start exercising…soon. Thanks for all the love. Stay safe!”

Send your well-wishes to Christie and Tom as they are on currently getting stronger and recovering from the virus via the comment section below.

47th Annual Daytime Emmy Ceremonies Canceled Due To Coronavirus Pandemic

There won’t be any “And the Enmy goes to _” come this June, where NATAS had originally scheduled three nights of award presentations honoring the best in daytime programming at the 47th Annual Daytime Emmys.   The three-day event was slated for June 12-14th, at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena. California.  Deadline broke the story of the decision to postpone daytime’s biggest night, for now.

NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision: “These were extremely difficult decisions to make, but at the end of the day the health and safety of our event attendees and staff must remain our paramount concern,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision. “We are closely monitoring public heath authorities’ guidance, seeking feedback from our awards communities, and evaluating the flexibility of our venue and production partners as we plan for the future in this unprecedented context.”

 NATAS chairman Terry O’Reilly said on the change” “Given our concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that we will not be staging the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena this coming June.  As there are so many unknowns right now with the flow of information changing on a daily, almost hourly, basis, it would simply be irresponsible to move forward with our annual celebration of excellence in daytime television at this time.”
