Eileen Davidson Speaks For The First Time On Her Return To Days Of Our Lives!

The Young and the Restless loss is truly going to be Days of our Lives gain.  As has been confirmed, Eileen Davidson is now set to reprise the role of Kristen DiMera, and who knows who else from her many roles that came with Kristen ( Susan Banks, Sister Mary Moira, Thomas, shall we go on?).  We loved them all, and now DAYS fan will get to see Kristen’s return and the talented Davidson on the NBC soap.

Davidson chatted exclusively with The Hollywood Reporter and said, “I’m thrilled to embark on this new adventure at Days and excited to revisit Kristen and who knows who else! Not to mention my old friends in the cast and crew.”  Eileen will reprise the character she played from 1993-98 starting October 11th!

A bit of the back-story; Kristen, the foster daughter of Stefano DiMera, was presumed dead after a body matching her description was found floating in a pool. The real Kristen, however, was left on an island after being sold to a harem.

So what do you think will bring Kristen back to the fold?  And, who else would you like to see Eileen reprise? Obviously, Susan Banks, but any others?  Let us know!

WELCOME BACK MY FAVORITE OF ALL TIMES, I WAITED PATIENTLY MORE THAN TEN YEARS FOR YOU TO COME HOME, DAY AFTER DAY, MONTHS AFTER MONTHS AND YEAR AFTER YEAR. WHEN YOU LEFT Y AND R AND WENT TO B AND B IN 2007, I WAS EXTREMELY DISSAPOINTED WITH DAYS PRODUCERS FOR NOT BRINGING YOU HOME. BUT NOW, I CAN’T SAY HOW MUCH HAPPY I AM WITH YOUR CHOICE TO RETURN HOME WHERE YOU BELONG. I AM BIG Y AND R FAN, BUT I LOVE YOU AS KRISTEN DIMERA. YOU WERE MADE FOR DAYS OF OUR LIVES, YOUR BEAUTY, UR TALENT.… Read more »

As long as the writers don’t use it as a device to build a wedge between John and Marlena, I am all for it. I would much rather see John and Marlena working together to thwart any manipulations Kristen tries then to try and make this into a triangle story. I’d like to see Susan come back and mess with EJ though.

YEAH!!! Love Eileen Davidson.

Now we need to bring Steve (Patch) back. Not that I don’t like Tucker on Y&R, but I much prefer Patch and it was nice to see Kayla today.

I have long wondered how Kristen faired in that harem. I guess now we’ll find out. I hope Susan returns too. Since EJ is on the show, only makes sense to have Susan. I hope Stefano returns.

Def is Y&R’s loss, but thrilled Eileen is coming back to Days!

Personally I hate what Gary Tomlin does. He basically trashes couples that were successful before he arrived. Having Kayla act so out of character in leaving Steve because he actually took a job with the ISA something he always did in the past and she was fine with made me ill. Tomlin only trashes the best. His vision is not something I can tolerate. Have not liked his work on Days at all!!!!!

And this from someone who used to love this program.

Steve Johnson is and was the BEST OF DAYS.

No thanks Tomlin, your shows I can readily dismiss

Yes, having the probs with Kayla and Steve is weird. And I always hate it when Days trashes Jack and write him off. No way would Jack act the way writers have had him act towards Jen. He wouldn’t leave her. There could be good story for Jack and Jen if they were bothered in writing it. Why not get rid of boring Cameron who doesn’t ad squat to the show?

STOKED! Been waiting for this news since the LAST TIME YR fired ED and speculation she’s return to DAYS, only for her to somehow end up on B&B for 30 seconds. Can’t wait to see ED interact with James Scott!

BOO to October though! 4 months away! The time between taping and airing is getting wider and wider. Next month, they’ll be taping Christmas!

I know, it is strange to tape that far ahead. I’m sure the cast and crew love it since they get long breaks (but have to tape more when they do tape).

It’s funny to see the actors that were fired still on the show months later.

I find it a little excruciating actually. Knowing months ahead that a character’s storyline is coming to an end, but having to endure them in the meantime (for better or for worse) is really hard and disruptive to my soap watching. I guess I could go spoiler free, but like I could ever stick with it lol.

Jules…. I like that word… Excruciating….

Agonizing… to have to fret… about… the casting… the writing…

Just saying…. for better or worse, we’ll all be there… for the Premiere… Oct. 11th.

Great news!! I would mainly love to see the Susan character revived. I use to do a mean mean mean impersonation of Eileen as Susan lol 🙂 Looking forward to it , although being in Australia we are so far behind again that i might be waiting awhile!

What, is there, left, to say? Eileen Davidson, has been with us… fans, and daytime, alike, since, 1982.. She’s been honing her profession… when she first graced our “screen” – on Y&R. She even starred on Santa Barbara.. for almost 2 years. Gosh! The Actors, who starred on that show, reads like a who’s who… daytime alumni.. tour de force. I hope DAYS… does, her justice. i’m (LOL) remaining “vigilante”. DOOL… DON’T SCREW THIS UP! Please, writers, with all due respect…. this is a coup that bodes well… for “many”. As much, as, i’d like to see “Susan”… I hope… Read more »

Maria Arena Hack’s loss is Days’ gain.

That woman wont be happy until the show is called “Daisy Carter” and sinks to number 4 in the ratings.

Co-sign your post! Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time that Maria Arena Hack (I love your name for her, fits her perfectly LOL) has does this and it will not be the last. I’m just happy to see that Eileen Davidson is moving on and doing well.

Fairly new to DOOL. Sold into a harem. Really? I believe DOOL needs to claim some reality and maybe put aside some of this over-the-top nonsense for awhile. The best eps since I have been watching have been those dealing with the young gay man and the death of Lexie. No devil possession. No international arms dealers. No resurrections from the dead. No hazy ambiguous business conglomerates.

That was James Reilly’s doing that is when I quit watching. He is also the guy who gave us Passions which replaced my beloved Another World! I am happy for you guys who enjoyed her character to over the top for my tastes. And no I am not being Mean,mean,mean LOL I will miss her at Y&R!

Oh Yea if anyone has any of ED of YR moving back to Days’ old clips from her many portrayals and characters while on Days the last time, Please do share….I had no idea how talented Eileen is until she got to show her comedic side. She is so one dimensional on YoungRestless and of course we know that is the writer’s fault. It’s no wonder she has not won an Emmy, she is not well written for, never ever. Ok, so my grammer is terrible tonight, but you get the idea. Pull out some clips..again PLEASE. thank you.

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.
