In an in-depth and re-introductory interview to the fans and the canvas of Days of our Lives, Eileen Davidson chatted with TV Line in a new video feature released today.

During the conversation, several past and present clips are shown featuring Eileen’s original story of nearly fourteen years ago, where Kristen tried to destroy John and Marlena’s happiness, while Susan Banks and a host of other characters Davidson so magnificently played, comprised one of the wackiest and most sensational stories under former DAYS head writer, the late James Reilly.

Eileen reveals to TV Line if Kristen, the former Salem troublemaker has changed her spots or not, and if Susan Banks might be on her way back to the Salem scene.  Davidson confirms she has already taped scenes with Deidre Hall (Marlena) and Drake Hogestyn (John), and James Scott (EJ).  In regards to Kristen’s time away from the canvas, Davidson admits that the present-day Kristen has undergone “years of intensive therapy”.

Now after the jump watch the video! Then let us know your thoughts about what you think will happen upon Kristen’s return to Salem come this October!

14 years… of “no” Eileen Davidson…. for DAYS!

OMG! What a BLAST to the PAST…. and can’t wait FUTURE!

Cat on a HOT tin Roof!

it’s a treat, just hearing… she’s already done scenes, with John, Marlena, and EJ. Can’t wait.

Eileen STARRED DAYS…. it seems like yesturday.

I have to state one more time….. DAYS! please, don’t, “XYZ Expletive” this up for Kristen. and us FANS. We remember Kristen and Susan… etc….. so well.

The only thing, I don’t like about the above article….. is: In regards to Kristen’s time away from the canvas, Davidson admits that the present-day Kristen has undergone “years of intensive therapy”.

What does? “years of intensive therapy”. mean? course, Eileen quips, that we don’t know that Kristen has changed for the good or the better. Fasten your seat belts people.

What i already posted… with regard to Susan possibly returning…. the formidable… acting talent that ED is… the writers can give her the same dialogue… and with ED’s talent… ie: body language… nuances… would still bring hoot, and holler…. Laugh out Loud…. FUN for ALL.

The Gala Premiere is October 11th.

I can’t believe it was 14 years ago. Her storyline is one that has stayed forefront in my mind along with Vivian burying Carly alive.

I think Kristen would need therapy after being stuck in that harem and then trying to get over losing John and their baby and having Stefano as a father. That’s why that whole EJ isn’t my son business didn’t ring true. Kristen and Peter weren’t Stefano’s bio children, yet he treated them the same, if not better than his bio children.

@mo.

yeh, those are reason enuf… for therapy. it just spooked my some… cause, i thought, “oh, no”. an excuse… or let down… on how they write the new Kristen.

even, she said…. “the late great James Reily” wrote his vision, over the top, good old days.

i, hold my breathe….

alas, thru thick and thin…. days for life!

Great interview! The interviewer asked great questions. I loved hearing she’s already worked with James Scott and you can see her working with Casey D. I’m so excited for her return!

This is potentially good news! Love Eileen- she was AMAZING back in the Day. Let’s just hope the writers/Corday don’t screw up another opportunity with a returning actor/character that fans have loved over the years (examples: Lisa Rinna- twice!, Melissa Reeves, Matthew Ashford, Christie Clarke- also twice!, Patrick Muldoon, Austin Peck, Stephen Nichols, etc.)

Eileen will be missed on Y&R. She is the original Ashley Abbott Newman McCall and will always be. I don’t care how many Ashley replacements….there is only one Ashley and that will always be Eileen Davidson. 🙂

Stories by the late James Reilly was the reason many Days fans quit watching the show in favor of The Young and the Restless. Many of those fans have never returned to Days.

I’m inclined to agree with you. it’s the darndest thing to remain true to your soap and ever vigilant. The late great James E. Reilly… creator of:

1. Carly – being buried alive, by Vivian.
2. Marlena – Possessed by Satan.
3. the Kristen/Susan mega watted drama, laugh out loud high brow… et el… my favorite.

Fabulous Woman. Top of the Line. IE: reason i remain ever faithful.

I am totally excited Eileen is coming back…i am so ready for a Marlena and Kristen Smackdown, of course with Marlena remaining the pretty heavy weight champ lol I
am so hoping with Eileen’s return to Days this means more airtime for my favorite super couple John and Marlena. Thanks Eileen for coming back you were totally the missing link of the show, missed your hell raising girl!!!! 🙂

Deidre Hall. I salute this woman…. she is BACK… with an energy… that has escalated her to new heights.

I say this – perhaps… cause… it’s not just scenes with her and Sammi.

She has been so riveting… in all her scenes with Carrie and Will. I still give her kudos for helping Sammi along… “show some respect” LOL.. as Sammi rears her attitude.

But, it was a treat to have Carrie “home”… and was fun to watch DAYS of old. Marlena… lion’essing… her “cubs”…. Carrie, Sammi, Will… etc.

and, every one… knows how DAYS has raised the bar with the stellar story of Will… with Marlena… top drawer’ing… along with her grandson.

I used to grit my teeth… of ole…. sugary sweet…. holier than thou… Marlena of ole… HOWEVER… since she’s come home…. She’s STARRING DAYS.

Thank you Deidre.

and acknowledging… John… finally, he’s being written story… what with his… going after Ian.. for dissing his son Brady…. the drugging of his son. and of course, John, also, contesting Stefano’s will and “deserving” his share and/or stake of the DiMera Empire.

and, on the horizon… October 11th, to be exact.

Kristen DiMera… back in fine form… to wrest control of Salem… with EJ. and wreaking havoc… with Marlena… LOL.. who, as their past story, dictates, they were the fiesty… polar opposites… kept us on the edge. John will man up and rise to the occasion… for Femme Fetale.

Brandon Barash Talks Stefan & Those Stabi Sex Scenes; Plus Freddie Smith & Acting Coach Maria O’Brien On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

On an all-new episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Live Podcast, Brandon Barash is the special guest for the first time since taking over the role of Stefan DiMera, originally played by Tyler Christopher.

During Barash’s interview with host, Michael Fairman, the actor chats on being a replacement for a role on the soaps which happens many-a-time,  plus why he plays bad boys so well; given that daytime drama fans first were introduced to Brandon from his work as mobster Johnny Zacchara on General Hospital.

Currently, Brandon is involved in the most steamy story on Days that of Stefan and Gabi’s (Camila Banus) contentious relationship.  While now Gabi has set out her revenge plan on Stefan; which included having sex with him, the tables are turning and these two bad apples are seemingly drawn to each other in more ways than just hitting the tabletops and desktops for a quick romp.  Barash fills the listener in on his take on the #Stabi relationship, and the trouble he has been put in thanks to the lies of Kate (Lauren Koslow) and Ted (Gilles Marini).

Later in the podcast, Fairman sits down with Freddie Smith (Sonny) and the Days of our Lives on-set acting coach, Maria O’Brien, as the two of them gives listeners insight on how Maria works with the cast to get them ready to hit the soundstage to deliver their lines, their monologues and get to the heart and deep-meaning in their emotional scenes.   Smith and O’Brien delve into some of Sonny’s most emotional scenes, and the rigors of acting in a long-running soap opera which shoots at such a tremendously fast paced.

You can download the episode available now on iTunes here, or head over to NBC.com/Inside Salem and check it out there.

So, are you digging Brandon as Stefan O DiMera? Are you rooting for Gabi and Stefan to wind up together more than just sexually, but in perhaps in a serious relationship? Weigh-in via the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Jack Wants His Memory Back, But Do You Want Him To Reunite With Jennifer … Or Stay With Eve?

Since his return to Salem on New Year’s Eve of 2018, Jack Deveraux (Matt Ashford) has had no recollection of his past, although there have been some mini-breakthroughs along the way, but none big enough or strong enough to get him out of the clutches of Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) and back into the arms of his longtime love, Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves).

Next week on Days of our Lives, looks like the story further heats up (according to the latest DAYS promo from NBC) where Jack tells Eve he wants his memory back.  She had held the cards to Dr.  Rolf’s formula and to the serum that could restore Jack’s memory, until Xander (Paul Telfer) got his hands on it, and turned it over in time to save the life of Will Horton (Chandler Massey).

Photo: JPI

So, now what will happen?  Will Eve play nice and truly help Jack get his memory back, or will she once again play dirty pool?  Meanwhile, look for Jennifer to make one more impassioned plea for Jack to remember their time together, and possibly decide it’s of no use and she must move on with her life.  But, will Jack regain his memory in time to be reunited with Jennifer? If he gets his memory back, could somehow he still choose to be with Eve?

Who do you want Jack to end up with? Are you #TeamJennifer of #TeamEve?  Let us know but first watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below, then share your choice via the comment section below.

Olivia Rose Keegan Posts Parting Thoughts As Her Final Episode As Claire Airs On DAYS

By now, many viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives have watched Tuesday’s episode, which saw Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) being wheeled out of a hospital room and on her way to the Bayview Sanitarium to deal with what led her to become a Salem firestarter after her latest attempt to torch Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and then herself.

In story, realizing she is severely troubled, Claire gets the news from her parents, Belle (Martha Madison) and Shawn (Brandon Beemer) that she won’t be facing prison time for attempted murder, but instead, she does need to be put away in a mental facility and leave right away at the judges orders.  That sets the stage for Olivia Rose Keegan to share her final scenes with many of her longtime co-stars before making her exit.

As her time on DAYS on-air came to a close, Olivia took to her Instagram to express her parting thoughts and the opportunity to play Claire, and be a part of the iconic soap opera

Keegan wrote: “Thank you for the best 4 years of my life.  To everyone who watches the show: I cannot thank you enough for sticking with Claire through the good, bad, and batsh*t.  Reading everyone’s comments/tweets this past week has been the most overwhelmingly amazing thing— It means more than you know   I also owe a huge thank you to the @nbcdays writers for giving me an opportunity to dig my nails into some fascinating material with this past storyline— as well as shine a light onto mental health awareness.  It would be too difficult to explain how much I love every single person in my @nbcdays family. It was a 4 year dream. I met lifelong friends, learned an infinite amount, and simply loved every minute of it.  Farewell from Salem’s newest pyro ”

Make sure to check out her exit interview with her co-stars, Rob Scott Wilson (Ben), Victoria Konefal and Brandon Beemer, exclusively on the DOOL app released this afternoon to hear the groups thoughts on the cabin fire twist, and Olivia’s exit from the Days canvas, and more.

So, sad to see Olivia make her exit from DAYS?  Do you hope she will come back for another turn as Claire?  Comment below.
