Claire is set to exit Salem next week on NBC’s Days of our Lives ending the run of Australian-born actress Isabel Durant.

Isabel took over the role from Olivia Rose Keegan, who had previously won a Daytime Emmy for her work.

Durant began on DAYS back in the fall of 2020, after Keegan played the role for the five previous years.

According to, look for Claire to get an offer she can’t refuse and head out of Salem on the upcoming Friday, August 20th episode of the NBC sudser.

So, will you miss Isabel as Claire? Comment below.

Word here in Hell is that Theo won’t be going back to South Africa alone. At this rate, there will be more Salem natives on the African continent than actually in Salem before too long.

And since we all know (from spoilers about the Peacock spinoff) that Ciara’s amnesia will be cured miraculously any day now, well why the Hell wouldn’t Theo want to take one of his actual ex-girlfriends with him??

Kind of a bummer though… I actually liked this version of Claire. Even if she was literally older than her own mother should be (a 28 year old, playing the daughter of somebody who was born in 1994… that’s crazier math than the whole Daniel “Eggman” Jonas saga!)

That’s not how it works. When a character is SORASed their birthdate changes.

I really liked her take on Claire. The character was more likable and more mature as played by her. I will miss her and wish her the best of luck!

I really like Isabel’s portrayal of Claire. If she must go, I’m glad they are not doing another Claire re-cast. Maybe she can return one day. Wishing her the best.

She’s a wonderful actress but she was never Claire. It just did not work.

To each their own! I prefer her to the original Claire.

Disappointing. As right as Beyond Salem seems to be going (for the most part), Days of Our Lives keeps getting it wrong.

Personally, I like her. She did a great job playing a more mature Claire. I hope they bring Claire back to Salem soon no matter who plays her. I’m pretty invested in the character and will miss her storyline.

This is a bit of a shocker, maybe not. Though, I felt like DAYS was truly invested in the “Claire” character by recasting the role. While I am not a fan of Isabel Durant’s Claire, at all. I wish her the best. She tried. I do hope this paves the way for the return of Emmy award winner, Olivia Rose Keegan to reclaim her part as Claire later in the year. On-contract, too. Return to DAYS Olivia!!! You were brilliant as Claire Brady.

So sorry, but did not like O.R.K in the role of Claire. Any reasons would be hurtful or insulting to her.

So, why bother and comment on my post?

Oh, I don’t know , I guess I just felt dissagreeable that day.

I respectfully disagree! Isabelle was much better in the role! Olivia chose to leave!

I’ve already read your other posts and opinions on your preference of the actress in this discussion thread. Also, do note that the current actress’s name is spelled… Isabel!!!

Watch out he’s after you too, and be sure and check your spelling from now on, ha,ha.

I believe we will see “our” Ms. Keegan, ala revolving door. which is what i truly thought, as she had landed a “recurring” role ? and for time off. KUDOS to @DAYS for all the in and outs… truly trying to mine the past and present co-workers. Olivia Rose is a mindset , untapped… oh she just captivates AND REELs her own

I wish Isabel the best… she got her “feet wet” so to speak ?!?! hopefully nested, and cache herself. take care

dag! okay , out the door

1. Olivia rose Keegan… doors open
2. I’d like to see the nuRECAST of Sonny… make a few trips to Salem. have to
3. “beyond DAYS” okay… i’ll watch… just so beyond the moon that Christie Clark is back w/Austin. oh lordy.. @DAYS should you HIRE back a new leading lady in Carrie… PLEASE lets do it !!!! she’s a marvel… Rafe is her MAN !

What a shame I really liked her.I wonder who if any will replace her.

Yes, will the old Clair be coming back?

Yes, I like this Clair. I wish her best of luck. Are they bringing the old Clair back?

No, “Old Claire” chose to leave.

She did okay, but Olivia was better. Sad to see Claire leave though.

I will miss Isabel Durant’s Claire. I hope I see her in other projects.

She is such a great onscreen presence. Why on earth couldn’t she have become a major character?
Perhaps she could return soon with news of finding ( SOMEONE OR SOMETHING) that DOOL simply cannot live without. Even a look-alike character would be good.

Yes I will. But I hope she returns soon

Isabel Durant! You will be missed! Thank you for your fantastic work!

I, for one, was initially disappointed that a new actress (Durant) would be playing Claire. But Durant won me over instantly. She’s a great actress who plays the role believably, and she has great chemistry with the other actors.

I have said this before: If DOOL could maintain any sense of consistency from one month to the next, the viewers might be more invested in the soap. Instead, month after month, cast changes are fast and furious. There is never any stability…

I hope that better days are ahead for Isabel Durant and that we see her onscreen again soon, if not back on DOOL, then elsewhere.

DAYS Arianne Zucker On Baby Switch Storyline: “It’s Heartbreaking to Watch What Nicole Has Been Going Through”

On Days of our Lives, a soap opera which has had more than its fair share of baby switch storylines over the years, viewers have watched in anguished now that Nicole Walker DiMera (Arianne Zucker) is the next victim of this heinous plot twist.

Making it all the more ironic is years ago, Nicole illegally took Sami’s daughter, Sydney after she suffered a miscarriage and tried to pass it off as her own, only for it to backfire in now classic scenes between Zucker and Alison Sweeney.

Now in 2023, it’s Nicole’s turn to have a ‘switch’ perpetrated on her, this time by Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) and the shifty Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) as the ringmasters.

The baby named “Jude” is actually Eric’s (Nicole’s all-time love) biological son, but Nicole has thought this whole time her baby daddy was EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), her current husband – thanks to more skullduggery from Sloan switching the DNA paternity results.

According to an interview in the latest issue of TV Guide Magazine, posted as an Instagram story on the Days of our Lives official show account,Nicole will get more of a clue as to what what happened behind her back, and to the unthinkable for a mother and her newborn baby, after she holds Eric’s “adopted” son Jude. It is then, she feels a strong bond with the little bundle of joy.  Remember, Nicole gave birth at the side of a road after getting into a car accident when Dimitri (Peter Porte) and Leo (Greg Rikaart) were driving the other care while they were on the run and trying to get to Dr. Rolf’s submarine.  Not the best of circumstances for a new mom, but was later told her baby had died.

Zucker expressed: “She (Nicole) feels there’s a possibility this baby is hers. Nicole knows that Sloan is sly. Nicole has an issue with postpartum depression as we saw with the last baby-switch storyline. She’s going to put all of those things together and think this has to be her baby.”

In the end, the longtime fan favorite, shared, “It’s heartbreaking to watch what Nicole had been going through.” It certainly has! With many Days of our Lives fans screaming “Emmy” for Zucker and Dan Feuerriegel as the “grieving parents.”

So, what do you think about the Nicole/Sloan baby switch storyline? Are you over it and want it to end sooner than later? What do you think about the performance of Arianne Zucker within it? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
