Former General Hospital star, Jen Lilley (Ex-Maxie) finally made her on-screen debut this week on Days of our Lives as bad girl Theresa!  But who is she really?  Who might she be related to in Salem?  So many questions!

Lilley’s first scene was where Theresa happens upon bad boy JJ (Casey Moss) who is now become daytime’s hottest drug peddler! Next, the two have a sexually charged innuendo filled exchange!  Theresa tells JJ, who has invited her back to the Horton house to hit the sheets ,   “Not my thing …  robbing the cradle.  You see, I think our age difference here, well, it could get in the way.”

Later, Theresa and JJ are confronted by Jennifer, who is not to happy about what her son is up to these days, and that is putting it mildly!

So, what are your first impressions of Jen Lilley in her new role? Looking forward to seeing how this all unfolds? Will she and JJ terrorize the town of Salem?  Watch her first scenes with Casey Moss after the jump in this DAYS video recap, and then comment below!

Very glad to see Jen is back on a soap. She was robbed of an Emmy nomination for her work on GH last year!

I did NOT realize it was Jen! I was going crazy, thinking I know that voice, who is that girl? I love her & really all of DAYS right now.

Jen Lilly is going to throw her web. it was her voice.. that caught me first… and I was grateful that she was unrecognized. Her luminescent eyes and recognition factor held me back. She made a splash on DAYS. you know… I’ve been somewhat dissapointed in Abby’s acting of late… but.. it’s written script that awaits…. Jenn Lilly, was an interesting take and read on the happenings of her beginnings, in GH. What caught my attention and rapture…. of GH. So. after the fact. of Will, Chad, and Gabbi… I read, that it’s ALL Good… with current regime and new… Read more »

I think/hope she is Kristin‘s daughter. Kristin needs someone to love, who could anchor and ground her a little. She needs to have a redeeming quality, and nothing does that like the love of a child. I just hope that Kristin isn‘t pregnant now, setting up a Brady vs. Eric father debate. This woman is old enough to be their mother!! It‘s time to let Nicole finally have a happy healthy baby. I hope SHE is pregnant with Brady‘s baby.

Would LOVE for Nicole to end up with a living, healthy baby of her very own. I don’t care who the father is! She has become one of my very favorites.

It appears to be a good departure for Jen Lilley. She is defintely going to bring trouble — a younger Kristen – perchance?

Kudos to DAYS for keeping her family connections a secret, too. I think it is generating a lot of interest. Like the chemistry with Casey Moss and Jen Lilley.

A good start!

I didn’t realize that the character was Jen ,that’s how good she is. I can’t wait to see the trouble she brings to Salem.Lo’s of luck for doing an excellent job.

She’s great! I just wish she was Jeannie Donovan!

I got the vibe she was an undercover cop the way she keeps wanting to know about JJ’s stash. So it could be feasible, if she were Shane’s daughter, she would use another name, so people on the force would not know she was the daughter of ISA agent and the niece of the Commissioner. Perhaps that is just wishful thinking, but fingers cross- she will be Jeannie Donovan.

That would be great! She is too talented to be wasted on a newbie or invented relative of someone! 😉

I’m also throwing my hat in for the character to be revealed as Jeannie Donovan. Especially with recent buzz about Patsy Pease possibly coming back as Jeannie’s mother Kim Brady.

Never understood why the big hype for her. I thought she did an OK job while Kirsten Storms was on leave. THe jury is still out on new character.

I do not see much positive interesting or much of a performance from her, so the jury is not still out for me! Chrishell Stause might be good, though. So when and if I start watching all the time again I will look for her.

Please excuse me for asking a dumb question, but I’ve never watched DAYS OF OUR LIVES – can someone just tell me what time it is on and what Network – I am on the West coast. I was always more of an “all my children” fan but now I watch that On line but I would like to tape Days of our Lives and watch it at night the same way I used to tape AMC – looks like a good show.

It’s on NBC. I’m not sure what time, since I’m on the East Coast but check at 1PM. You can also go to a site like TVGuide.com, plug in your zip code and they’ll tell you.

LOL. Halt you two. with the “demise” of Will, Chad, Gabbi… I’m relishing the introduction of Jenn Lilly and Charisse etc… for the better of DOOL. I have to. These two ladies… reel… intrigue… and have their own presence. Hey, can you not agree… that for newbies… they are not bad at all… they rose to the occasion. you know… if you step outside the box… and let go of the J.J. intro… “I hate Daniel” another tired… come between Daniel and Jenn…. you’d notice that JJ… does have some muster. he’s good with Jenn and Abigail… and hopefully.. chops… Read more »

I don’t dislike JJ but if Jen Lilly is in his scenes 99% I’m FF can’t stand her as the person I met or the actress she try’s to be. Lived your entire synopsis though Patrick that was great!!!!

I sincerely doubt you’ve met Jen Lilley if you don’t like her. Jen is the sweetest, most sincere, approachable, and down to earth actress ever. She’s kind to everyone, funny, and lives for helping others. I’ve met her. She’s open to her fans, she loves those who hate her, and she is nothing if not positive and selfless. She gives everyone she meets a hug. You couldn’t have met her. Maybe you’re confused. Or you’re just evil.

I don’t get it sorry folks. She really does nothing for me! Her acting isn’t all that great!! She wasn’t robbed of any Emmy LOL!!

Could Theresa be an undercover narcotics cop?

Well, that is the impression I got watching those scenes—so I wouldn’t be surprise if she was.

Well, considering I fast-forward through Jen/Daniel/JJ/Abigail/Chad – I have no impression of her because I won’t watch this crap storyline.

I do NOT like that Sly Stallone looking punk JJ on my screen. He’s a complete ass and I don’t even think he’s appealing to look at it.

This whole storyline is ruining otherwise decent ones for me but luckily when they are on, I can get through the show much faster!

Chloe
Guest

I don’t like Theresa at all. Unless she turns out to be undercover and not the bad girl that she’s being advertised as, then as far as I’m concerned, we can show her the door. When she put her feet on the coffee table and then had to nerve to get snippy with Jenn “you tell me who you are first”, I wanted to smack her. And why in the world did they hire two people who look so much alike [and have the same hairstyle] – I didn’t even realize at first that she wasn’t Bev [one of JJ’s… Read more »

This role seems to fit more than “Maxie”. She and JJ are the most watchable part of the show right now.

I also wonder if she is going to turn out to be connected to one of the major families. The way DOOL kept her role a secret makes me think there is more to her character which I think she is doing a great job.

Although my first suspicion was that she was undercover, after reading about the character I don’t think so. From the interview with Ken Corday, ” Oh, she is going to be nasty as she can be. And it’s just wonderful! Jen is so gorgeous, and she has that energy … that “it” factor that compels you to watch her even though you know she is just a snarky little gossip.” I enjoyed what I saw of her so far. VERY different from her portrayal of Maxie. (I have to admit I do not like the character of Maxie played either… Read more »

Shes great so happy for her . Shes just a example of how GH is losing talent to keep favs of the producer the OLTL crew needs to go . Jen Lilly ,now Kelly Sullivan ,Steve the list is to many . Happy for her sad my soap GH lost her.

whether she’s a Donovan… or Kristen and John’s long lost Love child… and if she’s either or… she naturally introduced herself to Salem… and oozed sexuality… with JJ… and he probably needs that to loosen up and let go of Daniel and Jenn. the drug bit.. is storyline… and it’s not like we’ve actually seen him lighting up … i think he’s inhibited… with the loss of his father… and being monitored by Mum… and having to live up to his family and living at home again.. after so long at boarding school. he’s finding his way… and LOL… if… Read more »

I think she’s Anne’s daughter. Mark my words.

Anne, is a no holds barred actor.

and she’s been a god-send with the “all-that” Daniel and Jenn debacle.

Anne and Maxine bring so much humor and respite… including Maxine’s tender hearted being.

Anne makes me laugh…. even when she must know she’s in the “wrong”… her not letting up on the oft haggie maggied out Jenn…. lightens the load we’ve bore cumbersome….

Patsy Pease and Mary Beth Evans better get together… perhaps they’ll bring up Bo?

I anxiously awaited for Jen Lilley to appear on Days! I loved her as Maxie on GH and am so enjoying Jen as a sassy and devious! I’ve never watched Days but i am becoming a fan thanks to Jen. She’s a hometown girl of whom we are so proud!!

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

I hope…. she’s Kristen’s hidden love child… with John…. for soap relevance… and righting Kristen…. to further cement Kristen in Salem. This would go a long way in giving Kristen “distraction” ?.

They’ve certainly “shown” Kristen… realizing she can fall in Love. and get over John? well… this love child would further embroil these two… for the rest of their lives in Salem.

LOL… I actually am still smitten at the idea that John and Kristen can find some thing between them.

Patrick

what better way for Kristen to have the last laugh some…. that Marlena can stew for the rest of her life…. An in your face reality that John and Kristen have a child.

I wonder if Jen Lilley is really Cassie Brady playing an undercover cop?

S

Also Roman was just talking to Jennifer beofre she saw Jen Lilley. So maybe Roman was letting her know that she is underover and not to blow her cover because just maybe she is really Cassie Brady and she is going to bust JJ for the drugs.

I never thought I’d say these words but DAYS is by far the best soap on television. Eileen Davidson is the best thing that has happened to this show in generations. I tune in every day to see what evil she will do next. She’s much scarier than her adoptive father Stephano. JJ is mesmerizing as the bad seed. Jen Lilley has intrigued me too. I wonder who she is. Great job DAYS!

I absolutely agree, Jared! I love Eileen Davidson; she is the reason I tuned back into Days! The more Kristen, the better!

I, myself am tired of “JJ,” so, I am really not invested in this storyline. I am hoping that Theresa is an undercover Narcotics agent and arrests JJ and sends him away for good. This storyline makes Jennifer look like an idiot. How can we be invested in Daniel and Jennifer when there is always someone trying to meddle in their relationship. Daniel needs someone who is exciting. Perhaps when Jordan arrives in Salem, she will be linked to Daniel somehow. Just hoping it is not Rafe. Not a Rafe fan at all. Have liked not having to hear or… Read more »
