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 Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?
