Remember the news of the casting notice that circulated around that NBC’s Days of our Lives was looking for … a gorgeous Japanese woman between the ages of 40 and 50?

Well, now it is revealed that the part is that of Paul Narita’s mother, Tori Narita, who as the casting breakdown originally went on to explain is, “a proud mother of her son who lives in Japan and longs to be in the States with her son to support his career!” The role has been cast with actress Hira Ambrosino, and is said as of now to be recurring.

Ambrosino’s other roles have included: Franklin & Bash, Hawaii Five-0, House M.D. CSI: NY,  Desperate Housewives, and Monk to name a few, and appearances on the soaps: The Young and the Restless, Days of our Lives (where she played Dr Hayden in 2009), One Life to Live and General Hospital.

What do you think of the news that Paul gets a mother? What do you think the character will ultimately be like? Good, bad, controlling, not excepting of her son, if she knew he was gay? Comment below!

Good or bad…controlling…knows or dont knows her son is gay…she can be any of those…just hope she is involved with Abe…was hoping Kayla and Maxine were with Abe but it looks like none will be…it would be interesting to have a character like a mother who has difficulting accepting her son is gay and they deal with it…its great Days have cast Asians in their storyline…Meanwhile, Paul and Serena have become too front and center too soon while established characters are either underused like Abe, Kayla, and Roman while others are in uninteresting stories…will John and Marlena ever sizzle again…will… Read more »

DAYS needs to get it together. So many woefully underused vets. Kayla, Abe, LUCAS, John and Marlena, Adrienne. GH definitely outdid them on their 50th anniversary, DAYS needs to follow suit or they won’t make it past 50!!!

I like the character of Paul. I believe he is a tragic character and that his fate will not be good. My belief is that Paul will, ultimately, be murdered and either Will or Sonny will be charged. Right now, I am not looking forward to Sonny finding out Will’s infidelity. Sonny will be crushed.

She is beautiful, and she will be welcome talent of color to the show.

if days wants to make it past 50 this is the direction it needs to take! if it wants new viewers it needs to reflect the audiences diversification! as a white male im completely objective in seeing how white salem is! adding asians is great, continuing forward its fianlly time days fill the void of lexie and bring on some characters of colour! with chad sucking as head of di mera now is the time for lexie to return as a brainwashed di mera in a evil manner! someone more sinister than stefano couldve set up lexies fake death! just… Read more »

I have watched for almost a year and it’s a little on the boring side – Nicole and Daniel to me are dull – and this business with Jordan and her bro Dan and their father Clyde, wrap it up already, it’s not that compelling. As far as the love making scenes, I FF through them – how many times do we have to see Abby and Ben smooching in bed – I like the characters, but they really do need some interesting storylines to keep things going – and some stronger actors, not just models who can memorize lines.… Read more »

NOTE: I’m sorry, I meant to write Jordan and her bro BEN. Well whatever his name is it’s not that interesting a storyline.

All for diversity (please, get someone nice for Abe and Maxine!), but how can Paul survive when he cheated with Will, the “golden boy”, altho he is Sami’s son. Sonny wont stay with him so someone’s gotta go (I hope it’s Will, Guy Wilson the actor is too wishy washy). Also, Clyde!!! Pulease! Get rid of that disgusting, abusive, man…Kate! wtf! And take Jordan (weak and stupid) and Ben (beadyl-eyed, stupid, bull-headed) with him! Someone needs to kick the crap out of Serena, now! And can Daniel or Brady be more beautiful or more STUPID?! (Waiting for when Brady finds… Read more »

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
