Over the weekend, Twitter and social media went ablaze when none other than Charlotte Ross tweeted news about a meeting she had with the DAYS creative team, co-executive producer, Greg Meng and co-head writer, Chris Whitesell!  Now that Jen Lilley is on the Salem canvas, would this be the appropriate time for Theresa’s half-sister, the once trouble-making Eve Donovan to return to the NBC soap?

According to Charlotte Ross, she related in her tweet from November 22nd: “Awesome mtg w/ Greg Meng & Christopher Whitesell at #NBC today talking about #DaysofourLives & #EveDonovan… AMAZING men! 😉 @nbcdays #DOOL

Jen Lilley in response to the tweet, enthusiastic tweeted, “Wow @charlotteross is amazing! Fingers crossed!”

Fans of the NBC soap witnessed last week the return of Shane Donovan and Kimberly played by Charles Shaughnessy and Patsy Pease!  Could a Charlotte Ross return be a pivotal part of DAYS games plan in 2014?

What do you think about Charlotte Ross possibly returning to DAYS?  Let us know?

I didn’t watch the show around Eve’s time, but I’d love to see more history become incorporated within the series.

And what a history Eve has! This is better than Christmas!

She was great as Eve so many years ago. If they focus on her as a villain, she could fill in some of the void left by the departure of Kristen D.

She would fill the void and then some!

I watched the show for ten years (1977 to 1987) back when it was good. Her story lines were just about to start when I stopped watching. The show was become Jerry Springer-like when I gave it up 26 years ago. She was very pretty, though.

I liked Eve and Charlotte, but we already have Theresa causing trouble. Do we need Eve too? I’d rather see Kim and Shane stick around.

ditto!

Thank you: hands down: the Donovan’s Shane And Kimberly should return home

that being said…

anything that helps Salem…

Brady – Lucas – T – JJ all need a woman in their lives

i’m scrambling: good news… nevertheless

FIREWORKS

add to the list… Nick

Well, we could enjoy seeing Eve pull Theresa’s hair out!!! I think I said that before. LOL

Ive been wondering about her. I thought she was great. Just tweeted Michael asking about her friend and later more. Wsd his name also Nick? Anyone? Remember he was a bad guy in the beginning.

Nick Correlli was Eve’s pimp at first!

Thanks 4everDays for reminder how Eve left town…it seems familiar now…hope Eve does show up in Salem.

The return of Eve…Theresa’s half sister…which can be the better bitch…maybe Eve can be a new love for Danial or we find out she was an old flame of E.J. and comes between him and Sami…ld like to see the return of some of Days old vets, especially now that Gabi killed Nick and most likely off to prison…

Did she or not leave town with Frankie…i forget at the moment…the actor who is to play Liam shouldve played Frankie because of the characters story connection to both Eve and Jen plus the Bradys.

My memory tells me Eve left with Frankie after the runaway train storyline. They moved to Africa.

I hope you’re wrong about Nick (Blake Berris). have you heard any rumblings about him exiting the show?

I had seen in magazine someone was to be killed off the show so i assume its Nick, and since Gabis leaving i guess she’ll go to prison for it and Will and Sonny will gain custody of Arianna.

I would love for Charlotte Ross to return to Days Of Our Lives. For me, she was the original baddie before Sami, Kristen and Nicole went around in circles.
Charlotte Ross and Charles Shaughnessy worked well together and also were in the tv-movie, A Kiss So Deadly (1996). They had a love scene that Days wouldn’t dare even try.
if Charlotte Ross returns, she will make the serial so much more refreshing. Listening to Sami and EJ going round to round has gotten really old. I feel like they are just bringing out past scripts with EJ and Sami and re-doing it again and again.
It has been 22 years since we have seen “Eve Donovan”. She is now 45. Let’s see her stir things up in Salem again.

The four years of Eve was better than any of the five sets of four years of Sami! Say that ten times fast!!!

OMFG!!!

She is the bitch goddess I’ve been aching for!!! I hope my dream of her return comes true!!! I have mentioned her several times here and elsewhere!!! I’m losing it!!! That’s a good thing!!! I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED CHARLOTTE ROSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am flipping out over a possible return of Eve Donovan played by Charlotte Ross!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m in heaven!!!

Down the hatch and up the dosage pal!

I was thinking about his last night and if they are bringing her back for a real story do you think perhaps Eve could be Jordan Ridgeway’s mother? They sort of look a like so it might be a possibility. Would the character today be old enough to have a daughter Jordan’s age? If so who would be her father? Any thoughts on this idea?

I’d say it’s a possibility. I’m thinking Frankie Brady, but Jack Devereoux would make a better story! Eve has a history with both!!! Happy viewing Mary SF!!!

I woul love to see Charlotte return as Eve, she can be a powerful return for DOOL.

Only one rivals her power; Mother Nature!!!

If Charlotte Ross does come back to DOOL…great, whatever. Just one thing: THE POWERS THAT BE aka The Producers better look like keeping BOTH CR and Susan Seaforth Hayes FAR, FAR AWAY from each other. Supposedly, CR and SSH DO NOT get along with each other and have clashed/butted heads in the past. I’m just saying………..

I too didn’t watch then but I loved the scenes with Kim, Shane & Theresa and this would be welcome addition and adding the history is pure gold…go Days, you have become my favorite soap lately and No. 2 is BB.

I would LOVE to see her back on the show! She is soo much fun to watch and had great chemistry with Charles Shaughnessy. Gorgeous too.

It depends are we talking about a real storyline or just her dropping by for a couple of shows like Kim and Shane? I always hate when they say a character is coming back when they are only in for a few shows and then gone again. If she is coming back for a real story then great, if just a cameo for a few days then not so much.

Charlotte Ross is one of the most profoundly beautiful women I ever seen. As Eve, she just exuded that captivating mixture of femininity and willpower. I became devoted to her not only because she was a masterful actress but because her beauty served the character. She wasn’t just beatiful by virtue of her endowments, every acting choice, every wistful moment, every triumph shone out of her. She was angelic, like a Botticelli angel and yet worked because she was all too human. If Eve never had the love of Salem, she had the love of the viewers. She would be one of the most inspired returns this show could pull off. I truly believe that had she played the Julia Roberts role in Pretty Woman instead, she would be a major movie star today.

Absolutely!!!

I would love for Eve to come back! I would hope it would pave the way for more returns by Shane and Kimberly as well. Patsy Pease was amazing while she was back!

ditto.

on Patsy Pease… she’s a breath of fresh air…. so… how do I explain this… she’s a true soap heroine…

like she lives a Serial life… she’s that immersed.. if you will…

a vulnerable… tough woman… who’s unaware of, unassuming, undaunted…

Kimberly is the type of character who forges ahead irregardless of her lot in life…

just LOVE HER with Shane…

———-

for all the soaps… ie: Shane and Kimberly looked so alive together…

wouldn’t it be a coup of DAYS-Kimberly-Theresa and Eve…

for NBC – Sony – DOOL to capitalize on this stellar captivating actors who reel Donovans unlike any other superstar soap families?

I thoroughly enjoy thee Donovans’…

why not capitalize on ALL this talent.

you could immediately tell… these 4 are seriously good actors

Shane – Kimberly – Theresa – Eve (Donovans’)

wow hopefully charlotte will come back as eve donovan. she is a terrific actress. i really loved her character, she was conniving and a bitch. in the end of her run eve turned out more nicer and softer. also please bring back bo brady. if peter reckell doesnt want to come back to days, then recast the role. poor hope, she has no storyline right now.

SOOO Excited for this.. Like someone else said she was the salem B!tch before Sami Nicole and Kristen.
So much story potential. She hated Jennifer. The prostitute story with Nick was so good. Don’t remember what happened to Nick, but I know Eve left with Frankie. Maybe she has some kind of Vendetta (lol) with Jennifer. Wasn’t she at one point involved with Jack?!
Charlotte is a good actress has done a lot of primetime since Days. Also still looks good, would be re-freshing to see her atcting on Days.. Maybe this could bring more story for Kim and Shane to become more regular recurring characters.

I believe Jo Johnson shot and killed Nick Corelli. She thought Nick killed Steve.

“…Maybe this could bring more story for Kim and Shane to become more regular recurring characters.”

this is MY hope…. Feature Thee Donovans: in Salem.

Yes!!!! Return of Eve!!! Make her successful & rich!!!! Powerful woman that will pull strings all over Salem!!!!!!

I always Loved her what a an Amazing Actress she played an Outstanding Character & did a hottt job now its time to put DAYS back on the #1 Chart again for 2014 do what u hve to bring in more characters especially the past ones that hve Family Ties … Daggggg GH is bringing in so many Characters & there Ratings are high up come on Days where the Heck is ” BO ” hope is in LIMBO come on already & the Brady / Eric guys need a new Lady to stir the pot especially Lucas to need s a Lady what about poor Abgail needs a leading male u guys leave these characters empty it s sad your wasting these amazing characters hope Kristen aka Eileen Davidson comes back she an Amazing Actress for this show… Great News for John Black coming back now its time to get to Families the Hortons / Brady’s / DiMera / & Need a new Strong Family with Big Huge Ties to be the next juicy story thats my wish for My # 1 show … also wish Lexie nvr died wish the Actress could come back to the show for ABE he needs someone , For Kate I loved Roman w/her they look like a hottt sizzling Couple bring them back together ……. anyway sincerely Marc from Tampa Bay FL…… God Bless the Amazing Cast & Crew for all there hard work & especially the Hair Makeup & Lighting Crew & Writers Hve a Wonderful Happy Holidays to all ……..Hugggggggs …..

HOW FREAKING AMAZING would that be? Yay!

It would be great to see Charlote back as Eve. Maybe be rich and become Kate & Sami’s boss. That would make her character closer to E.J. Or maybe a love interest for Lucas. Oh that would make Sami so jealous.

I really hope not. Eve was a disgusting character. A return now would just be pointless.

Eve was a super bitch with a huge heart. Complex and complicated. You may like her this time around.

not if they’re showcasing … thee Donovans

4 quality actors who reel big time.

Shane the effervescent hero
Kimberly so unaware of her surroundings yet captivates
Theresa the struggling vixen could learn from Eve and wreat havoc
Eve takes it upon herself to surround all the menfolk and keep em’ busy

whatever it takes for DAYS to retain it’s Serial

you’d get the only supercouple.
with two daughters who steal the show….

all good… heck… showcase the Bradys as well….. Caroline, Kayla, Roman, Hope

she’s a great actor need charlotte back on days and her family yes yes yes bring them all back !

YES YES YES bring her back. I loved watching her with Nick Corelli…She was so GOOD at being so BAD!!! I wonder if she still will have the scar on her face??? Love DAYS OF OUR LIVES

Please bring her back with a deep-dark-secret that she teases once in a while…that she secretly has Jack & has been nursing him back to health, even though he has…AMNESIA!! (cheesy soap music) Cause that’d be the SHIZZZ!!! Come on Days – you NEED a new villain and Eve would fit the bill NICELY!!!!!

I’m just guessing , but if the negotiations do work out for her to return in a front burner storyline, with Days of Our Lives being four months ahead now on their filming until air date, and the time it takes for them to write episodes daily, we probably would not see “Eve” until close to summer 2014.
I am eager to hear of any further announcements of Miss Ross’ return.

With some luck, we can see CR as Eve during May sweeps! We should hear some news by January!

I love Eve! She’s always been one of my favorite DOOL characters and I loved Charlotte Ross on NYPD Blue. Eve and Nick Corelli were such an amazing couple. I’d love to see her back on DOOL.

wonderful news about charlotte ross return great actor so excited I been wanting this like for ever for this to happen my dreams are coming true the Donovans forever !

PLEASE come back, Charlotte!!!!

Charlotte Ross needs to come back ASAP

That would be cool if she came back to the show. I’ve been watching clips of her on the show in the early 1990s (from YouTube), and even though she was a conniving character, I couldn’t help but feel sorry for her. Eventually I began to like her because she tried to change. Although it’s unpopular and a little weird, I liked her with Frankie. I wish they could be a couple on the show together again. (I guess that’s because I’ve always been a Jennifer and Jack fan). Anyway, I hope she comes back because I might actually watch the clips she’s in on the show.

My goodness. I have forgotten that Eve Donovan is Shane’s and Gabrielle’s daughter. I think Kassie DePaiva will do well in the role as “Eve”, but I am disappointed Miss Ross is busy with Nashville (ABC) and was unable to return as “Eve”. Ross made a wise business decision.

Jason Cook Recalls Landing His Soap Roles as DAYS Shawn-Douglas Brady and GH’s Matt Hunter

Daytime fans remember Jason Cook when he became wildly-popular as Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Bo’s (Peter Reckell) son, Shawn-Douglas Brady on Days of our Lives from 1999-2006. He later made a brief return in the role in 2015 for the series 50th anniversary.

After departing DAYS, Cook was offered a role on General Hospital as Dr. Matt Hunter, the younger brother to Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) from 2008-2012. However, during his time on the soaps, and after, Cook has been focusing on his behind the scenes roles and passion as writer and a director of feature films.

Last week, the Michael Fairman Channel welcomed Jason, along with two of the stars of his latest film, Four for Fun, Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Jacob Young (ex-AMC, B&B, GH). During the conversation, Cook revealed his continued admiration for the soap medium and the actors who work in it, and how it came to pass that he landed his parts on Days of our Lives, and then on General Hospital.

Cook spoke on becoming the on-screen son of soap opera’s most iconic couples, Bo and Hope: “I auditioned for Fran Bascom. She was the Days of our Lives casting director at the time. I was never a great auditioner, I don’t think. She made me feel really comfortable. I remember that screen test. And then, I remember when I got the part, I was actually working at a company at a desk job. I got the call at work and I just screamed, and at the time I didn’t quit my job. But then, I got that contract when I was 19-years-old and it totally changed my life.”

But, was Jason aware how key to the show being Bo and Hope’s son would be? “Yeah, my older sister was a fan of the show. She definitely let me know that I better not mess it up, because I was gonna ruin her favorite couple,” he shared. “I remember she printed out the family tree and it looked like a physics diagram. It was so complicated. A lot of detailed work went into it. But, I was excited.”

After being a known entity with a large fan following, eventually Cook made his way to a new role on General Hospital. Jason explained, “GH was fun. That was a situation where Brian Frons (ex-ABC Daytime President) brought me over there. I just told him I didn’t want to be like or want to do Shawn. He’s like, ‘Well, what do you wanna do?’ I said, ‘How can I screw things up around here and shake things up?'”

Photo: JPI

From that conversation things began to formulate. Cook revealed, “We started talking about the TV series House. I think in soaps, there’s an assumption if you’re going on a show that everybody wants to be the hero. I was like, ‘I don’t want to (be). I want to screw everything up.’ And then, they wrote it in that Matt Hunter burns the hospital down within like six months. I was like really proud about that. The other part that I loved about that character is that Matt, and his older brother Patrick (Jason Thompson), were both neurosurgeons. And if you (an actor) resigned your contract (with the show) you go to Patrick, you see Patrick. And if you don’t resign your contract, you see my character, because my character was going to kill you every time.”

For more on the interview, make sure to check out the replay of the livestream conversation below with Jason, Brytni Sarpy and Jacob Young.  Now let us know, did you enjoy Jason as Shawn-D and Matt on GH? Do you hope someday he might return on-screen to the soaps? Let us know in the comment section.

According to Jacob, the production start date is April 1st. He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.

IMDb has more on the film. It shared that former All My Children star Trent Garrett (ex-Asher Pike) is listed as co-directing the feature. Mark Rozzano is listed as writer of Murder Between Friends.

Days of our Lives Star Blake Berris Chats On the Everett Lynch/Bobby Stein Mystery, Working with His New Co-Stars, and the Last Christmas Episode with Bill Hayes

On Days of our Lives, the return of Blake Berris is making for some very intriguing drama, with the audience guessing just which way the story will go.

When Berris arrived back on Days of our Lives, after previously playing Nick Fallon, he was taking on the new role of Everett Lynch, who has a past with Stephanie Johnson (Abigail Klein) and Jada Hunter (Elia Cantu). Only, as it has been revealed, the past he had with Jada was under the name “Bobby Stein,” who from what we can tell was far from a nice guy.

Blake visited the Michael Fairman Channel for a livestream interview this week, where fans in the live chat were weighing-on what could be the truth about the guy – is he a split personality suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder? Did the accident that cost him a year of his life in a coma, never happen? Recently, someone set fire to the beloved Horton house. Fans are suspecting it would have been “Bobby” who is working for Clyde Weston (James Read). Others believe that Everett/Bobby could actually be Clyde’s son. With upcoming therapy sessions with Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) about to start, things are about to get more juicy in Salem.

Photo: JPI

Here are just a few excerpts from our conversation with Blake on a myriad of Everett/Bobby subjects. Make sure to check out the full interview for more.

Did you know that they were going to make Everett Lynch a Jewish character? This is only the second time in the history of the show that they have even had a Jewish character on the canvas. Didn’t they reveal this at the Horton family Christmas episode?

BLAKE: No, they never asked me. I am half-Jewish on my dad’s side. There was never like, ‘You’re Jewish, right? We can call you Jewish on the show?’ At the Horton Christmas, “They made a real point of it, yeah.”

And now the new ‘character’ is “Bobby Stein” …

BLAKE: “Right, and that suggests more Jewish, and then Lynch must be coming from somewhere else, maybe the mother. I was so curious because I think the show has been historically, I’m gonna say, Catholic more than like Wasps. With the Bradys there’s this sort of Irish influence, and then the DiMeras, that’s Italian. So, we’ve got Catholics sort of on both sides that are dominant. Now I, “represent”.

Photo: JPI

What has it been like working with Abigail Klein?

BLAKE: I think she is extraordinary. We start off sort of frosty, or she’s frosty with me, like she doesn’t want to let me in. And then, for a while things are going really well. I just could not adore Abigail more. She’s such a good actor. I could always rely on her to bring me back into a scene and be there in this emotionally, supportive way.

Photo: JPI

Everett and Chad seemed to be becoming friend-ish, when all went awry when at the PCPD interrogation room, Everett let him know about Elia and Bobby Stein, and Chad let him have it for worming his way back in to Stephanie’s life.

BLAKE: Billy would call us the ‘disgusting brothers’ and that’s a reference from Succession, because all of a sudden they’re just so chummy with each other. It’s like all of a sudden we just had this like ‘Bernstein and Woodward’, sort of dynamic duo. I think that Everett really started to think of Chad as a friend and feels sort of disappointed, and he feels, “Oh, it’s that easy? I just needed to have some other identity and now you’re a fair-weather friend?”‘

Photo: JPI

In recent scenes, Jada sees Bobby Stein for the first time, and we see you and Elia Cantu share scenes with each other for the first time. What is it like working with Elia?

BLAKE: She’s fire, man. She comes in hot and she tells you the way it’s going to be. I think early on, we were trying to suss each other out and the more we worked together, the more comfortable you get with somebody. I think actors do this sometimes with each other; if there’s spice on screen, you like to keep some of what you have on-screen in your (real-life) interactions because it helps … it helps the work.  Eventually, we just sort of wore each other down and we’re like, ‘I actually totally get you, and you’re great.'”

Did you know that they were going to make Everett Lynch a Jewish character? This is only the second time in the history of the show that they have even had a Jewish character and didn’t they reveal this at the Horton family Christmas episode?

BLAKE: No, they never asked me. I am half-Jewish on my dad’s side. There was never like, ‘You’re Jewish, right? We can call you Jewish on the show?’ At the Horton Christmas, “They made a real point of it, yeah.”

And now the new ‘character’ is “Bobby Stein” …

BLAKE: “Right, and that suggests more Jewish, and then Lynch must be coming from somewhere else, maybe the mother. I was so curious because I think the show has been historically, I’m gonna say, Catholic more than like Wasps. With the Bradys there’s this sort of Irish influence, and then the DiMeras, that’s Italian. So we’ve got Catholics sort of on both sides that are dominant. Now I, “represent”.

You were on set and in the annual Horton Christmas episode which sadly marked the last for Days of our Lives legendary Bill Hayes, who passed away in January of this year.  What do you recall of that tape day?

BLAKE: It was the Christmas episode when we were watching Susan (Julie) and Bill, say ‘Merry Christmas.’  And there was something about it that just felt like it could be the last time. I mean, it wrecked us all on set. Bill gets so choked up and there was something really profound about the moment. They kiss each other as they have so many times before on the show. It was just beautiful. It felt beautiful to be there for that last Christmas. He’s just such an icon. Every time I’d see him, he was so with it … he knew my name, he knew his lines. What an incredible, incredible man.

Photo: JPI

Fans will get to see Everett in therapy sessions with Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)? Would you say she is helping the guy?

BLAKE: Deidre’s always making jokes about Marlena, ‘She’s the worst therapist in the world’ (Laughs) I remember in the first therapy session, we almost couldn’t get through the scenes because it’s just so clear that Everett has a litany of very profound psychological issues that he is going to have to work through. He’ll keep coming back. This guy’s gonna pay the bills!

Photo: JPI

Viewers are waiting to see how they mystery of Everett Lynch/Bobby Stein plays out. What can you say as a tease for what’s to come?

BLAKE: As far as a tease, I would say, you have all these characters sort of, trying to wake up the ‘sleeping giant’ in a way. I think it’s safe to say that like if you poke a bear, the bear might wake up.

Watch the livestream chat with Blake in full below.

Now let us know, what do you think is going with Everett/Bobby? What has happened to him in his past? Share your theories in the comment section below, and make sure to catch Days of our Lives next week on Peacock for more to his story.
