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 OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
