Jackée Harry Reveals She is Joining the Cast of Days of our Lives

Sitcom star and fan favorite, Jackée Harry announced this morning on TODAY that she is joining the cast of Days of our Lives.  Harry got her soap start on Another World (Ex-Lily Mason).   She shared: “I am going to be joining the cast of a big, big soap opera on NBC, Days of our Lives.”

Then, Jackée revealed she is taking on a new role in Salem, by teasing, “She’s fabulous. You know I play the fabulous woman!  It’s a brand-new storyline with African Americans, and they’ve been at the forefront of hiring minorities; they have a lot of diversity on Days o our Lives. I don’t want to give away the storyline but I have a daughter and … ain’t nothing but trouble in River City.  But I’m told … I’ll be fabulous.”

And if DAYS fans recall, Harry got the attention of head writer, Ron Carlivati back in January of 2020 following the airing of the Grammy Awards on CBS. That is when Harry sent out a tweet with a side-by-side image of Grammy icon, Bonnie Raitt, next to DAYS’ Suzanne Rogers (Maggie).

 

Harry, who is known for her humor and wit in her tweets, expressed: “Has Bonnie Raitt been moonlighting as Maggie from Days of 0ur Lives for the past 20 years? 

Known for her signature role as Sandra Clark on the sitcom 227,  Carlivati responded: “No, Bonnie is obviously Maggie’s evil twin. The real question is, when is Sandra Clark going to come visit Salem?”  Next, an excited Harry sent back: “Ha!!!! I would LOVE to play with the DOOL cast, Ron.”

Now it’s December, Jackée  has a role on DAYS!

NBC confirmed to EW.com that Harry’s new DAYS role is Paulina, who comes to Salem to reconnect with her family. New to town, the successful and outspoken Paulina will be connected to the Carvers.  She will begin filming this month for episodes set to air in March of 2021.

You can watch reveal that she is joining the soap and more during her appearance on TODAY here.

Yep, she’s always a riot whenever and wherever she shows up. Not quite sure how she fits into DAYS, but it ought to be a fun ride.

And oh my goodness, that photo! Has she discovered an anti-aging serum the rest of us don’t know about? I had no idea who it was until I read the article.

A very appealing actress. I look forward to seeing her on screen. Now for a tangent: as much as I like the show, I think its fatal flaw is the non-stop comings and goings of characters. Some of these changes are welcome, some are not. There is just no stability! Just when you think the show is all about Sonny and Wil or Brady and Kristen or Ben and Ciara or Xander and Sarah or Hope and Rafe or Gabi and whoever, it turns on a dime. Poof! Beloved characters are gone. Old characters come back. New characters join in.… Read more »

“I am still watching because there are some days (i.e., Days) when my favorite characters are featured — until they’re not.”

Already diagnosed your own problem. Every plot thread mentioned was resolved. You just have to watch. Every day.

It’s obvious that she will be playing Lani’s mom!

Why would that be obvious? Lani already has a mom and she’s portrayed by the same actress since her first appearance on the show back in the early 1980s (and that would be Marilyn McCoo of the 5th Dimension, of course) More likely Jackee will be playing a new character, possibly the mother of Theo Carver’s new girlfriend. As it’s unlikely they would have bothered with a Theo recast for two episodes, he’s probably coming back from South Africa soon, and bringing the new girl with him. I’m guessing we’ll find out her family is also “from Salem” even though… Read more »

Yes, I know Harry took this job for the $$$. However, I can’t believe her career has declined so much that she has to take a part on DOOL in its current state? There is no one like Tyler Perry who could give her role in one of his films?

I like Harry. It just saddens me to see that this is where her career has gone. Given the revolving door of actors at DOOL, I doubt she will be there long.

So, you read the article above, and remember her exchange with Ron earlier. Right? She’s a fan of the show. Maybe she’s doing it for fun. If DAYS is bargain basement entertainment, why watch.

Loved her when she played Lily on AW. I’m going to bet dimes to dollars she will tie in with Abe which will be good if it goes that way. But either way, she is going to be great with the rest of the cast!!!

I am SO confused!I am sure I read just a few days ago that she was going to be playing Gwen’s mother. I thought it was crazy then,but being involved with the Carvers makes way more sense.
