Sunday on her own terms, Kassie DePaiva confirmed her exit from Days of our Lives after reports and rumors have been swirling over the past few weeks.  The former star of One Life to Live where she played Blair Cramer for over 20 years, took over the role of Eve Donovan on DAYS back on-screen in 2014.

On her website blog KassieDePaiva.com, the actress addressed her departure from Salem to her fans, and thanked them for their continued support.  Currently on-air, Eve is the middle of high drama following the murder of her daughter, Paige (True O’Brien), and the imminent arrival of her ex-flame, Eduardo played by Daytime Emmy winner A Martinez.

Here is an excerpt below of what Kassie had to share  about being let go from the NBC daytime drama series, which is about to have it’s golden anniversary this November.

Kassie DePaiva: “As the sand runs out of my hourglass over at Days … I have no regrets.  I had a truly remarkable experience there.  From the beginning as Eve showed up in town and throughout her bumpy ride through Salem it has all been a good time for me. I got to work with people that I have admired for many years.  I especially want to thank Melissa Reeves, True O’ Brien, Casey Moss, Jen Lilley, Wally Kurth and A Martinez.  They each helped me find the ‘real’ Eve.  It saddens me to have been let go from the show just as Eve was finally finding her footing… but that is the way the Soap business goes. Characters come and go just as actors, writers, and producers.  Some we love… Some we hate… But fortunately for all of us the stories still go on. Keep watching and here’s to 50 more years of Days of our Lives.”

Look for On-Air On-Soaps in-depth interview with DePaiva on her departure in the coming weeks!

She’s such a class act .. not a Dool fan
(Always watch abc soaps) but tuned in to see
Her from time to time..Not sure this was
A great choice for Day’s..She has a
Huge following..I wish her well !
Now if GH would pick her back up!

Exactly what I was going to write. .”what a class ACT!!”

Classy lady, classy exit. Kassie has handled this in the most professional way. The problem with her time on DOOL is that when she mentioned the actors on DOOL with whom she’d worked and whom she wanted to thank, she pretty much thanked the only six actors with whom she’d worked in the last year or so. You’re really up against the wall when you only interact with the same few actors over and over again, and one-third of them (A Martinez, Wally Kurth) she only started to work with in the last few months of her time on the show. I wish her well in whatever she does next.

Thank you Beth, beautifully stated

“…she pretty much thanked the only six actors with whom she’d worked in the last year or so ”

yeah, it just smarts, rankles, and pisses me off

that DAYS production… didn’t have the hindsight… and foresee the obvious love from the audience… and the potential and gold they had in this beloved LEADING Lady….

ugh!

therin… i’m livid at all the possibilities Kassie DePaiva’ Eve could have flown and helmed with…

especially knowing… A. Martinez, Wally Kurth, and those cast members associated with these two men… she could have rallied befriend allied provoked tryst eye to eye

the cast alone… has to know what they’ve lost

At first, her version of Eve and a snooze of-a-storyline turned me off, especially when she bedded JJ but i saw a turnaround and started to like her in the role…in the beginning when Eve showed up there shouldv’e been hints Paige might be Jack’s daughter or Frankie’s and thats what Eve used to break up Paige and JJ…well, if Eve isnt killed off the could always bring the character back with her or Charlotte Ross if either one is available!!!

Claudio

Yes Jim, they should try to bring back Charlotte Ross. She played the role the best. Nothing against Kassie, but she just was not Eve. She had the southern twang. LOL. I LOVED Kassie as Blair on One Life To LIve, she was wonderful in the role.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Maybe they are and thats why they let Kassie go?

I love Kassie and I loved getting to see her on DOOL. She’s a truly remarkable performer and gave us Blair Cramer, a character I won’t ever forget. I enjoyed her on Days a lot and I’ll miss seeing her onscreen.
I hope we get to see her in something again soon and I wish her the very best always.

So sad about this casting decision. Clearly current writers did not feel Eve had a place anymore. I hope I see Kassie dePaiva on screen again soon somewhere. She is awesome to watch. And again here, as she was during the OLTL cancellation and reboot, a class act. Applause, applause!

TPTB wrote Eve as a one-note character who’s life revolved around Paige. W/O her daughter, unfortunately she had no where to go.

What they SHOULD have done is cast James DePaiva as Paige’s father and show Eve “maturing” now that her daughter is gone.

Quite simply: Kassie DePaiva was one of the best things to have ever happened to DAYS. She brought it every time she was on screen, even with the previous sub par writers. Her scenes regarding Paige’s death were on the level that no other actor on DAYS can bring with the exception of Billy Flynn. After Eileen Davidson left for Y&R, they continued bringing in younger actors who really left a lot to be desired. We are left with an aging cast – John, Marlena, Victor, Maggie, Julie, Doug and the like who are pretty much snooze fests on screen. I don’t mind incorporating old guard with the new, I really don’t but they just can’t move the story along convincingly. I hope that with the addition of the new teenage characters (the grown up versions of child characters) that we don’t just become a place where love and lust are the focal point. DAYS has always been the soap that tells interesting, if not crazy at times, stories. That is their strength. It crushes me to know that Kassie will be gone from the scene because she is one of the brightest in that cast. Can we please get rid of Jennifer ? Other than her whining and scowling what exactly does she bring?

Patrick
Patrick

I do not know

that, it’s over doing it
that, it’s overwrought

or just command

that DAYS acknowledge a grievance

letting go… one of the best of the best… is glaring

will not be forgotten
in this day and age of what is

a treasured lead

dang it ! sub par …

we know that…

DAYS production is greasing the wheel… culling from… and whetting their experience vs. audience

how disingenuous to expect … ?

i’m indignant riled and in an uproar to cave

“…Quite simply: Kassie DePaiva was one of the best things to have ever happened to DAYS “

Heard a lot about the “excitement ” happening at Days. Well it certainly isnt exciting to the fans of the show who havent watched since 1985 . All I see are great actors and characters being sacrificed for the relics and fossils of decades long ago .

Apparently Corday and the powers that be learned absolutely nothing from the summer disaster of Genie Francis returning in Port Charles when ratings hit an all time low 🙁

Mike

I get what you are saying in your first paragraph. TPTB are putting an awful lot on characters that haven’t been on screen or driven story in several years. Once all these 50 – 60 year old actors are brought back, and the initial love fest is over … then what? There is a place for them for sure, but between them, the new kids being brought on, the show is missing a chunk of actors in the age group in between 18 – 50. Glaring problem there.

But I have to disagree what you seem to be saying in your second paragraph. You make it sound like Genie coming back to GH was a disaster, which I think is wildly overstating her influence on the ratings. I don’t think she caused the ratings to decline – I mean, she returned to the show along with Emma Samms, Nathan Parsons and Jonathan Jackson. Those four didn’t have an impact, so you can’t lay it all at Genie’s feet. And it had a lot more to do with an audience exhausted by the ongoing Luke saga, as well as a preposterous return from the dead and an exit story for Luke that was so poorly written and executed, that you would have thought amateurs wrote it.

If anything, once the dust settled and Luke was off canvas, her interactions with the rest of the cast, particularly Nikolas and Elizabeth, brought out some nice colors and shading to the scenes that we don’t get much of on GH. It showed the potential of what having her around regularly can bring to the show. But even those ‘solo’ scenes of hers (without Luke) only lasted about three days, so it wouldn’t have had much impact. And didn’t. You can certainly say she didn’t help the ratings, but you can’t say (or imply) she was to blame for the drop – there was SO much more going on that deserves that blame.

In a perfect soap world, there always needs to be a good balance of age groups with the characters featured. You have audiences that have watched since the beginning who know and love these veteran characters, some that started watching in later years and continue to do so, and you have your new watchers. Everyone should have story opportunity, but returning veterans shouldn’t be brought on just as a gimmick to prop up another character’s story or for a temporary ratings spike! They should have purposed, whether it be for a limited run or on contract to further their own story. Genie Francis was brought back as part of Luke’s exit story, but her story will continue. She had a 2 month family vacation pre-planned, which the show honored, and she will be back on canvas very soon with her own story. Execs have even hinted at a possible new love for her. They should also go back to the idea they started and dropped in 2013 when Laura and Lucy were going to open that spa with Milo as one of the fitness directors. There would be lots of potential there.

The show needs its vets and restructure the entire GH. The younger characters don’t have much bite and everyone just wants to fight and kill each other. Today the show went on and on about If Morgan kills Julian he’ll go to prison. No concern of Julian as a human being and saving his life because he matters. If Morgan had killed Julian, then he should go to prison but we know on GH that is the thing that will happen. The older characters have a lot of value to build community and and family structure. Morgan should be going to college or working. It would be interesting if he showed symptoms of being bipolar in school or on the job. Then something would be at stake. There’s nothing at stake at GH. The actors are out of control and are agressive in real life. Tony Geary refusing to do a goodbye scene with Genie Francis, calling out the show in an exit interview and when announcing retirement by saying he’s been bored for 20 years. That’s not going to make new viewers to watch. Morgan, the actor who plays him threatens a viewer on Twitter and now Nancy Graham insulting her network’s number one star at the moment and taking on racism. This are unhappy people who want to lash out and hurt others. Scary. The vets like Genie, Jackie, Leslie, Scotty, etc. don’t behave that way. I’m glad Kin has a job but can he take off resting bi**h face for a second or two?

DDOL……HUGE MISTAKE!!! YOU JUST LET GO OF THE BEST ACTRESS ON YOUR SHOW!

Days made the right decision period, Kassie was not right for the role as Eve. I love Kassie, but she was totally wrong for the role.

Tim S.

I agree with you Emma!! Great actress and she did a good job, but there was not connection as Eve.. Eve was very impactful years ago and us who watched then…. were def vested in the actress who played her.. Never thought Cassie was in the right role …..I am excited to see what Cassie will do next.. I will be watching!!

I think Days is not doing a very smart thing in letting Kassie go.I loved watching her perform and in the past week I have cried along with Eve .Good lord Days why?.She was the best one on your show.To be honest I never heard of Kassie until days but I quickly became a huge fan.I for one will miss her.

Linda

I dont watch Days but was glad Kassie got a soap role after OLTL. I loved her on that show and was surprised that she never got an emmy. I wish ABC would offer her a role on GH.

I think eve played her part ,I didn’t think that she should have slept with J J ….. that was just sick ….. I believe she was a true drama queen with Jennifer ….it won’t be the same without her or Piage I’m glad Eve is done …I only wish Piage hadn’t left and her and J J didn’t get back together.. now can we please get rid of Treasa.

Pamela

Me too Betty, happy Eve will be gone. Theresa needs to be killed off the show. She is annoying and needs to be murdered. Theresa needs to go away.

I like Kassie, i sure did not like her role as Eve… if her character could have been redeemed and at least act more decent than to sleep with her daughter boyfriend JJ..i am really shocked DAYS let Kassie go…a shocker!!! she very classy professional, her kind words is huge plus as it shows her true self to be loving, kind. & she is great actress!!!…unlike EVE!!! i sure wish she is not killed off, but who knows right now…i wonder why DAYS let her go…..

Michael

Sad news. Sooner or later, Days ALWAYS does the same thing. They bring back a popular character from the past, hoping to strike gold one more time. Inevitably, for one reason or another- usually poor writing if storyline- and the character leaves the canvas again. DePavia is such a really good actress, they could have done so much more in writing for her character.

Torqumada

Aptly put.

I also agree with the person who said she only had scenes with a handful of actors. The was stuck playing the same three scenes over and over.

She’s a fine actress. It’s the writing that let her down.

Ces

she was never right for the part of Eve.

Going to miss her….There were more stories for Eve. Would love to see Bold and the Beautiful hire this lady as a love interest for Ridge or Bill. So sick of Caroline and Katie on that show.

Not sure how you know her career in Daytime is over unless you’re privy to information the rest of us aren’t. Until you share…I will continue to believe such a great actress will continue working in Daytime or in any other genre. Thanks for replying…

Jack Burke
Jack Burke

How do YOU know that her daytime career is over? What’s that supposed to mean – no offense, but frankly, that’s a worthless, inane comment.
I thought she did well with the role of the not terribly likable Eve. I am sorry to see her exit the canvas, while the writers are concentrating on archaic characters from many years ago, trying to re-energize old storylines that probably should remain where they were left. I, as a newer viewer, do not particularly find the scenes between Marlena and John all that enthralling, nor do I especially care that “Patch” is back to annoy Kayla.
I would never be so presumptuous to state that an actor’s career “is over”.

DYLAN
DYLAN

What?!?!? An age appropriate love story on Bold and Beautiful? Do those happen? LOL. They would cast her as yet another transgender character and tell another fairy tale that has Ridge and Bill fighting over him/her. If B and B had normal writers with any talent, they could write a cool story for Kassie…maybe she could be Kristin Forrester! The last one was certainly not a very good actress. She could be a really commanding presence, and yes, her and Don Diamont would be good together! but that show has an incredibly embarrassing track record of wasting some of the best soap talent around. The list is too lengthy to even mention.

Mo
Mo

It does seem peculiar to let her go now that they’ve brought on an ex-husband. Why didn’t they just have Eve and Paige leave town rather than kill Paige if Eve was going to leave too? It just doesn’t make sense.

I wish Kassie much success.

Gmbenet

I thoroughly enjoyed Kassie as Eve. Not upset about her departure from Days IF there is the possibility of a return. The writers and/or producers messed up when they had Eve sleep with JJ. Eve leaving Salem after Paige’s death is a logical ending to that story, if that is how it will play out.

I would like to see Eve return at some point in the future and get a fresh start in Salem. So I hope the writers did not kill her off.

Dino

I saw this coming, Kassie is a wonderful actress. She was miscast as Eve, Charlotte Ross was the original eve, she played the role from 1987 to 1991. she was the best Eve, but Kassie grew on me as Eve. When her daughter paige was murdered, and Eve went to the morgue I started crying. Kassie needs to win a emmy next year. I loved Kassie on OLTL as Blair Cramer. GH or The Bold and The Beautiful need to hire Kassie Depaiva.

I have been a fan of Miss DePaiva, and her resl life husband (Max, on OLTL) for many years. I was very happy she had joined Days and hate that she has been let go. Her character had alot to look forward to as one of the “bad guys” which she played so well. Her acting ability reaches its height when she is dealing with the death of her daughter. She had me in tears. Good luck in the future.

The new writers are taking away any good potential for story line and adding old, overused characters to just make DOOL much worse…very frustrating show and very disappointing.

Having only watched Days for a little over a year, I tend to agree with you. But, I’m trying to keep an open mind. I really enjoyed Stephen Nichols on GH and Y&R. Here so far, I’m underwhelmed. I’m trying to give it time.

JJ

It just keeps getting worse. I will stop watching on Kassie’s last day. Eve is the only character that is exciting and can hold my attention. No wonder DOOL is last in the ratings. I bet they’ll lose even more viewers too.

Super sad to see her go. Loved her as Eve, it is not the actresses fault that her material was terrible. Would rather have had her given a longer chance with a better story. Her parting words are gracious, and prove what a class act she is.

“…It saddens me to have been let go from the show just as Eve was finally finding her footing… ”

bar none… she’s “one” of, if not the best, of the entire genre…

she carried
she caught my attention
she never let up
she shared her presence

Days production erred on their part

I haven’t been this caught up in a leading lady… in a very long time

and it’s Ms. DePaiva

“Thank You, Kassie”

she… may…. not have…. been “right” … for the role

but she sure made us watch

I was riveted… because DAYS after EJ and Sami / and / Will and Sonny / and Kristen departure

who did DAYS have left…

Kassie DePaiva’ Eve

that’s saying something… that put her at the top of the cast LEAD

DAYS Production ? figure that out !

Llanviewer717
Llanviewer717

I have been so very upset since I first heard this news. Kassie is a wonderful actress with a tremendous range. The scenes since Eve learned of Paige’s death have been so raw, so real and so heartbreaking. Kassie knocks every scene out of the park. There is so much potential for Eve’s at least partial rehabilitation after the tragedy of her daughter’s death. I was so hoping to see her develop some kind of relationship with Justin. The powers that be certainly missed the boat again on this decision.

Her comments demonstrate once again what a truly closely lady Kassie DePaiva is. Thank you Kassie for your wonderful work and the enjoy you brought to this viewer. I wish you the absolute best in your future.

She was the bright spot the last few months when the show was not that watchable. The are not many actors of her caliber around, some other show should snap her up. The lady is a true class act.

NEW talent
NEW artists
NEW fans
NEW renewed interest
NEW blood
NEW lifeline

so many actors coming and going, in and out, of, said studio(s)

this is at or near the biggest let…

yeah, I was watching… as Eve , was home alone… mourning Paige and whats left of her life… and it was obviously clear… she had no one on that cast in which to share or bereave….

yet… I was riveted just watching Kassie DePaiva

as the cast around her… was rallying … bringing in old is new talents
as the cast around her… was celebrating … vim and vigor over new scripts
as the cast around her… didn’t have that choice to keep her

as DAYS production… took the easy street and easy way out… to blindly forge supercoupledom… and SORAS… and appreciate what fans have always known… what worked… what brought ratings… what will… ??? !!! ???

Big big rumor is, One Life To live could come back online or on ABC. They are trying to revive the soap. If this is true, we are all going to be happy. Heard this on the 6o clock news. I live in Vancouver BC Canada. what they are saying is, its going to be 30 minutes.

Hi Tom. I live in Canada too. I loved those shows as much as anyone else, but do you really not feel that those ships have sailed? I am not trying to be rude, or quash your enthusiasm. Those shows left the airwaves at a certain moment in time, with certain actors, and certain storylines. Time has passed, actors have moved on, fans have new shows to love. After being screwed around for so long, what makes anyone think that the actors from OLTL would even WANT to gear up for a fourth attempt at reviving that show? I liked some of the Prospect Park version, but some of the absences were just glaring, and made the show not even feel like OLTL. Jessica was not there, Starr was not there, Todd was occasionally there. There was no Roxy, no Rex, none of the characters that made OLTL so fun. It had Viki and Dorian, which was good, even if their storyline was absurd…Viki sinking her entire fortune into a fund created by Dorian? And weren’t they saying her whole fortune was only something like 5 million dollars?? I think to gather these actors again after 4 years would prove problematic, and to recast most of the major roles would not be well received by fans. It might be best for fans to just enjoy memories. I used to cherish my dusty VHS tapes of special soap moments I saved, but now thanks to youtube, we can relive almost any moment from any show we want! Thats what we long for anyway, are the great old storylines, and how soaps used to be!! The nostalgia factor is what we crave. 40 * years of ANY business or tv show is a remarkable feat. Everything ends, and nothing lasts forever. Don’t get me wrong…if it were logistically possible, I would LOVE to see Another World (cancelled 1999) or Santa Barbara reboots (cancelled 1993)!! Those were my childhood soaps! Soaps just need to reinvent. They need primetime size casts…12-15 people. They need NEW writers. They need to air maybe 3 times a week, not 5. They also need to find a home that is receptive to them…something like soapnet, but with new programming as well. These shows dont need budgets that break the bank either!! A channel like that could do anything with these shows. They could do 12 week mini stories of OLTL, or AMC, or GL, or ATWT. They could get back say 5 actors from the original show, and write a closed ended story arc with beloved characters from the past, not focusing on an unwieldy cast of 30-40, but a small cast. There are SO many possibilities, and yet people get tangled up over red tape and other silly things. Like with Prospect/ABC. Who gives a #$@% who owns the rights to these shows and characters? The shows are off the air!!! There are no characters or shows to be fighting over! LOl. It is absurd……fighting legally over… Read more »

Sorry to say I could never get past thinking Kassie was all wrong for Eve. And her relentless hatred of Jennifer and JJ didn’t help. If I tried to think of her as a completely different character, I could accept her a bit more, but at the end of the day, the shadow of Charlotte Ross just hung over the role and the delicious story it would have been had she come back.

That being said, Kassie BROUGHT IT to the scenes of Paige’s death. I fast forward through much of Eve’s scenes, but stopped for those – and the woman brought tears to me eyes, it was so raw and painful. She’s acting her heart out and deserves an award for her grieving scenes alone.

And I would love to see her back on GH. Wish, wish, wish they could get the OLTL characters back, but if they can’t – Celia Quartermaine? Jenny Eckert? Those roles aren’t considered iconic and weren’t played by distinctive actresses, so she wouldn’t have the same recast issues. There’s a place for her and she could still be tied to GH families and history.

Just sayin’.

DYLAN
DYLAN

Hey Mike! Good casting suggestions!!!! Scroll down and read my long post about suggestions I made! I never really got the character of Jenny Eckert at all. But I LOVED Celia and Jimmy Lee! I don’t know what Steve Bond is doing these days, but I have been saying for years that Tom Eplin, formerly Jake on AW, should be the new Jimmy Lee. Last I heard he was not acting anymore, but there are a lot of rugged men in that 50 ish age range who could play redneck Jimmy Lee! Kassie as Celia would be awesome! They would be a fun addition to GH, and liven up the Quartermaine mansion, which has been decimated by pointless deaths and writers who only write for Sonny Corinthos. Hayden could be their daughter, thereby tying her to the main family. Celia and Jimmy Lee are a blank slate on which the writers could write anything, as no one has mentioned either of them for almost 30 years! Both Sherilyn Wolter and Steve Bond went on to have roles on Santa Barbara, and I have not seen them in anything since. If any writer is willing to write for the Quartermaines, that is the way to go!! Along with another reveal that AJ is alive, once and for all! Whichever, it doesnt matter that Kassie briefly portrayed Blair on GH. We would accept her in any role!

Kassie’s acting is flawless, but this incarnation of Eve was poorly written. She had the unfortunate luck of the draw.

Theres nothing wrong with kassie acting the problem is the writers they give parts then they fade her then bring her back doing the same things that only works for a part for a young actor growing up shes just too old for the parts .

Another example of a wonderful talent who was given a role and a story line that wasted her acting skills. And, now that she’s finally getting scripts that make use of her abilities they decide to let her go.

Unbelievable.

I know she sings in the Christmas episode, which should be wonderful.

Glad she’s gone. I thought she was a bad actress. I tape it so I buzzed through her character when on. I didn’t dare for Paige either so don’t feel bad.

Kassie made a very nice statement. I wish her well. She is a strong actress, and she needed a bigger role, and more interaction with more characters. Her character was kept in a box with a limited storyline. I just keep thinking of her in that apartment. She was great as Blair on OLTL. Look forward to seeing her in other roles.

Kassie’s scenes today with A. Martinez were riveting. When Eve collapsed in grief into his arms, I almost collapsed on the couch. Eve has been a hell raising vixen that i’ve wanted to strangle. But now, her entire world is destroyed. You can’t help being moved for her. Kassie is doing a magnificent job.

I love Kassie. Everyone loves Kassie. At first I thought…Why Eve?? (I loathed the character in the 80’s and 90’s). I thought it woeful miscasting…but then thought…hey, Kassie is the recast Queen! Blair on OLTL was played by a short Asian actress, and Kassie is tall blonde and southern…lol…and Kassie made that role all her own. A side not to Michael Fairman…I have seen twice now that you have said Kassie played Blair for over 20 years. She didn’t, just for the record. If memory serves, Mia Korf played the role from 1991-1993, and Kassie took over in late 1993 and was going full steam ahead in 1994. As OLTL was cancelled in early 2012, that wold make her run well under 20 years, but that’s not important. The problem was what it usually is on soaps…the writing. Eve was stuck in the teeny bopper story, played most of her scenes in her claustrophobic apartment, and rarely interacted with anyone but Paige, JJ, or Jennifer. Kassie is daytime royalty. She should have been interwoven into stories with the heavy hitters…Victor, Kate, Nicole, Kristen, etc. Her fued with Jennifer often came off as silly, looking like David vs. Goliath due to Kassie’s height. Back in 1990-1991, when Jennifer and Eve were in their early 20’s, their bickering and bantering was light weight fluff. To have it brought back over 20 years later as this simmering refueled rivalry did not make sense or make either character look good. That is one of the big problems with soaps…characters rarely change, even after 20 years. It gets repetitive and tiresome to see characters KEEP doing the same things over and over…what I refer to as the ERICA KANE SYNDROME. characters who don’t learn a single thing, or change or grow at all during a lengthy soap run. DAYS’ accelerated taping schedule has also hindered this story. Paige was not really well received when she was written as some kind of homespun 50’s teen from Wisconsin. But once she found out about Even and JJ, she became interesting, and True O’Brien showed she really could deliver. Like I said when she first came on, there is something Sydney Penny-ish about her, and everyone knows how successful Sydney Penny was in daytime!! (SB, AMC, B and B). Then Paige was murdered. Since then, Kassie has been playing the kind of scenes she excels at…rage fuelled grief!! There was a nice chemistry developing between her and Justin. She could also have swung in Rafe’s direction! I am totally on board with the new writing regime thus far…I just don’t get why they are doing this story almost in reverse…bringing on Paige’s father AFTER she died, and making him connected to Rafe as well. This was a story that should have played out while Paige was alive, and before media had reported that Eve is leaving. All in all, it seemed that nothing quite worked out for Kassie and DAYS. The writing, the timing, the pacing, the plotting,… Read more »

Thank you, Kassie for an amazing body of work. This long-time fan looks forward to seeing you in your next project! I’m truly going to miss you on my screen.

Good bye DOOL when Kassie is gone. I’ll have 5 more hours in my week to do other things. She’s honestly the only good thing that show has going. It’s amazing how many bores they keep on that show but let interesting characters leave. No wonder they have the lowest ratings! I bet they’ll keep dropping viewers too! Stupid mistake DOOL

I’m happy to see her go. Never did like her with her “over the top” “sweetheart” talk to Paige. But I am increasingly bored with the new writers. I used to cringe at the thought of the show being cancelled, but now it’s possible I might just decide not to watch. The story line is soooo boring, with conversations between the characters that go on for too long. It’s just bad writing overall. Sorry to say… BAD…

DAYS Promo: What’s Going To Happen At Jarlena’s Wedding Anniversary Shindig?

Coming up next week on Days of our Lives, prepare for drama, drama, and more drama! From the looks of the latest promo for the NBC soap opera, the action takes place at Marlena (Deidre Hall) and John’s (Drake Hogestyn) surprise one-year wedding anniversary soirée, where things could take a deadly turn!

But with the Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) masquerading as “Nicole” plot reaching new heights, Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) and Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) back in Salem, and the promo telling viewers “For one guest, the party, is over” followed by Sonny (Freddie Smith) yelling, “She’s got a gun!” and Brady’s (Eric Martsolf) ending line, “Oh, my God!” there is plenty to conjecture.

Also seen in the teaser is Kate (Lauren Koslow) trying to rip off the face of Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), and Stefan (Brandon Barash) and Gabi (Camila Banus) getting hot and heavy and Eric (Greg Vaughan) yelling, “No!”

So, check out the promo below and then let us know via the comment section below, what you think is about to go down at Jarlena’s party, where last August at their nuptials … things did not go off without a hitch, either!

DAYS Stacy Haiduk and Eric Martsolf Talk Kristen & Brady’s Twisted Relationship : The Mask, The Deception, The Sex

Last week on Days of our Lives, Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) was able to get the man she craves in between the sheets.  So, just how did that happen when Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) had no idea she was alive?  Well … he still doesn’t, really.  You see, Kristen returned to Salem disguised as another ex flame of Brady’s, Nicole Walker (who everyone believed died in the warehouse explosion).  And Kristen has been parading around town donning an incredible likeness of Nicole’s face – via a prosthetic mask – and some other tricks to sound and look just like her!

Kristen’s goal is to infiltrate Salem, remind Brady of the love and passion they shared, take over DiMera Enterprises, and who knows what else!  And everyone who stands in her way, better watch out as we have seen! We are speaking to you (the late) Ted, and (once kidnapped) Kate, et al.

Fans of the NBC daytime drama series have followed the tortured relationship between Kristen and Brady for years and through many plots; Kristen was first played and brought to life by Eileen Davidson, and for well over a year now by Stacy Haiduk.  Not only has Haiduk reprised the role of a frustrated, vengeful Kristen, she is also playing at times multiple roles: the wacky and often misunderstood, Susan Banks, Kristen playing Susan, or Kristen pretending to be Sister Mary Moira.

As for Daytime Emmy winner, Eric Martsolf, this latest story arc puts him front and center as viewers watch to see if what Brady senses, and the clues, and the feelings he is having, bring him to the conclusion that he has been duped by Kristen, and that her horrendous scheme – pretending to be Nicole (Arianne Zucker), and dumping Nicole’s longtime love Eric (Greg Vaughan) to be with him have a result that is unexpected or catastrophic!

Michael Fairman TV sat down with Stacy and Eric for this conversation about: all the plot twists, and playing the drama and the humor of the situations they find themselves in as actors in a wild story that only head writer Ron Carlivati could pen and keep the audience on the edge of their seats in the process. Check out this oh-so-fun, direct, and enlightening chat with two of DAYS most shining stars.

Eric, what has it been like working in this part of your storyline; where there’s the character of Kristen in its many forms: Arianne Zucker playing “Nicole” (but it’s really Kristen), Kristen as Susan, and the real Kristen, etc?

ERIC:  It’s been a nightmare Michael.  (Laughs)  I don’t know who I’m sleeping with anymore.  I’m at the point where I go home at night, and I just tug on my wife’s cheek just to make sure that she is not my ex-girlfriend from high school.

When you first heard of this storyline, and that it was going to facilitate how Arianne was going to come back to the show… and that it was supposed to be Kristen in a Nicole Walker prosthetic mask with a voice alternator, what went through your mind?

ERIC:  I think in the back of Ron’s Carlivati’s (head writer, DAYS) mind, he was thinking to himself, “This dude started his soap career on Passions, he’s okay with this kind of thing,” and honestly, nothing surprises me anymore.  When you’re thrown into that supernatural, crazy reality, doesn’t-live-here sort of atmosphere for you first soap gig, you don’t sweat a mask and a voice modulator.  That’s just par for the course.  My biggest problem was the body thing … that Brady is not able to distinguish one body from the other, because I would as Eric.  My God, I know every inch of my wife’s body.  So, it’s difficult to get my head around that, but at the same time, I’m going with the whole “love is blind” thing here. (Laughs)

Courtesy/NBC

(Laughs) I was going just going to say that Brady would absolutely know Kristen’s body from how passionate their relationship has been in the past, as well, he would Nicole’s body from his relationship with her.

ERIC:  Since Kristen did finally just succeed – let’s use the word in “seducing” him, and using her wonderful feminine wiles as only Kristen has to get Brady in to bed, there was also another twist.  What plays after that is that he notices the tattoo that’s been removed, and she plays it off as scarring from the fire.  What’s going through his mind as he is making love to Nicole is a “Kristen train”.  He can’t get Kristen out of his mind, and the guilt that he feels about that is horrendous.

Right! Brady is thinking: “Why am I feeling this when I am supposed to be with Nicole!?”

ERIC:  Right!  Brady has been waiting for a relationship for God knows how many years now – at least a successful one.  He is so eager to have this work, even though he has been concerned about how Eric (Greg Vaughan) would feel about this.  In Brady’s mind, Eric is done with Nicole.  He’s good.  He loves Sarah (Linsey Godfrey).  This is fair game.  Brady and Nicole have always been close … they’ve been close before … so, for him, it’s, why not give it a fair try?   However, he finds himself now thinking about another woman the whole time.  That’s rough.

Courtesy/NBC

Do you think in the back of his mind, that this whole time, he possibly knew that “Nicole” was Kristen?

ERIC:  Well, you just have to wait.  There will be a reveal eventually, obviously, but until then, let the games play on.

So, once Brady and “Nicole” have sex, he keeps thinking about Kristen?

ERIC:  Constantly!  She just plagues his mind.  I think he’s realizing that his affection for Kristen is anything but dead and is very alive, and I think this is Kristen’s master plan from the very beginning.  She knows that she pervades his soul, and once she does reveal herself, I would guess he would probably be surprised, maybe a little angry, but in the end … you can’t deny what your heart and your body wants, right?

One of my favorite recent scenes had Brady half-naked and Kristen as Susan getting into his room, because she was looking for the MIA Nicole mask she so desperately needed.  She finds herself gawking and lusting after Brady under her disguise, and he tries to remove himself from the situation and says, “Susan, I’m going to get in the shower…”

ERIC:  Yeah! And, “It’s not going to happen, baby.”

What was that like doing that scene?

STACY:  I loved it!  I thought Eric was brilliant in it.  I watched it, and I thought, “Oh, my God!”  (Laughs) It is one of my all-time favorite scenes.

Photo: JPI

ERIC:  Kristen is a tiger.

STACY:  She is a tiger.  She’s got a goal, and she is going to go after that.  She has obstacles that are going to come in-between her goal, but she will go after whatever she wants.

When Stacy comes in to Brady’s room as Susan, were you not laughing?

ERIC: No!  I thought she was hot. (Laughs)

STACY:  He did … he loved it.  You liked me, didn’t you baby? (Laughs)

ERIC:  I don’t think anybody can deny that Stacy Haiduk’s portrayal of Susan Banks is ridiculously good.  Everything from her delivery … to her facial expressions.  I think it is amazing.  I mean, it is corny, and it is fun, and soaps need characters like that once in a while to lighten the load of the heavy dialogue and the drama.  It’s a welcomed addition.  So, I love playing scenes with Susan.

Eric, you always have been able play the straight-man so well in comedic scenes with impeccable timing,

STACY:  You’re brilliant, Eric.

ERIC:  You guys are being very nice to me.

STACY:  You are.  I remember on the day how much fun we had, but then, seeing it back and the crap that I was giving you, and just the stuff you were giving back was so beautiful, and innocent, and so alive.  It was so funny.

Does Kristen think that now that she finally got Brady into bed that she won … that she got what she wanted … even if she had to don a “Nicole” mask to do it?

STACY:  Well, no, because she still can’t be really Kristen.  I think she is grateful that she gets to be with him.  That’s one of her biggest goals: to be with Brady and she wants to have him fall back in love with her again.  But for her, now it’s all about, “How do I reveal myself so that he doesn’t get scared away?”  That’s the toughest part for her.  Kristen’s love is so deep that it goes beyond this mask.  So, how is it going to be when he sees her?   Is he going to freak out?  What’s going to happen?

ERIC:  Did you think Kristen would be a little pissed off and think, “Oh my God.  He did go for Nicole?”

STACY:  Yes!  I do, because she’s like, “Finally, I got him!  But wait a minute … did I get him because I was Nicole … or because I was Kristen?”  As Kristen, she always believes there is something deeper between them and a deep connection.  That remains a driving force to her.

Photo: JPI

ERIC:  That’s why I love these characters so much, because of you and the history of Kristen with Brady.  She’s always wanted him as much as he has wanted her.  She’s always wanted to be loved.

STACY:  Yes … and very much so.

ERIC:  Kristen had always wanted to be a part of the DiMera Empire, just as Brady has always wanted to be a part of the Kiriakis Empire, and they’ve always wanted love.  They’ve never had it.  They believe in the back of their minds that anything is attainable.  So, I can see why Kristen would just forgo the Nicole disguise and just go, “He wants me.”

STACY:  Kristen wants to believe that Brady knows it.  She says to herself, “He knows it’s me inside and behind the mask.  When he finds out, he will fall back in love with me.”

Now that she actually had sex with Brady, wouldn’t that make Kristen even more insatiable to be with him? Like, “I’ve got to have him!?”

STACY:  The fear is still .. what happens she takes this mask off?  She always says, “I’ll reveal myself, but I have to do it slowly when it is the right time.”  I think there is that built up frustration now for her, absolutely!

Arianne Zucker really has Stacy’s mannerisms down as Kristen.  It really comes into in scenes where “Nicole” goes off on someone or loses her temper.  Eric, you have worked with Arianne for years on this show.  What do you think about her performances in this storyline?

ERIC:  I have worked with Ari over the years, and I have enjoyed it a lot.  Ari did do her homework.  She did study Stacy’s tape, and she watched her mannerisms, and she took it very seriously.  I know that because she is a hard worker, as much as a goofball as she is, she does work hard, and she wanted it to be good.  I think my favorite parts were the Kristen meltdowns.  You have to understand though; Stacy and Ari get along very well!  They’re kind of two peas in a pod.  So, it wasn’t a big stretch for her to take on how Stacy would play those types of scenes.  They’re both animated, they’re both wild people by nature, and so, it was a good fit.  It was a smart idea from the writers.

STACY:  It was a good fit!

ERIC:  I’ve been out with the two of them, and it’s hard to tell the two of them apart. (Laughs)

STACY:  We are just like two cuddly bunnies.

ERIC:  They’re like flirting with each other, and hugging each other.  You find yourself thinking, “Are they going to start ordering the same food at the same time?  This is getting weird. (Laughs)

Courtesy/NBC

In the recent scene that aired; where Kristen as “Nicole” turns off the light while having sex with Brady, is she worried her plan will now go awry?

STACY:  Yes.  I think she is worried about her body because it is burned.  You know, how they take a tattoo off, and it’s as painful as can be.  Not that I’ve had that done personally.  I like my tats, but I hear it is painful.  So, in the storyline, the burn is that pain that she has and the tattoo. There’s a part of her that thinks,  she has to cover it up, and turn the lights down low.

ERIC:  “Nicole” is sleeping, and Brady is rubbing his hands over her shoulder and touching her body, and as he goes over the burn marks.  He sees a flash of the tattoo!  That is a pivotal moment when he starts to put some pieces together.   He thinks, “Woah! That’s exactly where that tattoo was.”  It’s a slow little rollercoaster ride.

Courtesy/NBC

In the past, Kristen then played by Eileen Davidson, drugged and raped Father Eric.  Stacy, did you ever see that story arc?  Literally the sex scene is playing on the screen at Kristen’s wedding to Brady and then all hell breaks loose.  This to say Kristen is notorious for the ways and the lengths she goes to get her men into bed.

STACY:  Yes! I saw her Eileen do those scenes.

ERIC:  You also saw how close Kristen and Brady were to their dream, to their happiness, their goal, which was they were going to marry each other.  Brady is looking upon his loved ones in this town and thinking, “I know what you all think of her, but I’m going to show you our love on this screen, and once you see the connection that we have here as a couple, you all are going to be convinced that we belong together as well.  This is the happiest day of my life,” and the screen comes up and it’s his brother banging Kristen instead.

Marlena (Deidre Hall) played the wrong DVD!

STACY:  It was so good.  See, I try to find as much info as I can on the character’s past, because all of the time I’m trying to find where these characters have been in their dark and twisted past.

Photo: JPI

ERIC:  You’re putting your own stamp on Kristen.  You got a direct call from DAYS casting department, didn’t you … when they were recasting the role?

STACY:  Yes.  You have to understand, I had two really separate characters to play when I was on Y&R.  One was a doctor, and one was this crazy passionate, wild, little minx.

ERIC:  I will say to find the wild and the beauty in one package is not easy in any town, yet alone Los Angeles.  I’m glad they called you, because you have that.  You have that villainous nature, but you also are able to show a vulnerable side to Kristen that is going to be a lot of fun and interesting to see.

Stacy is one of those people that will leap off of the screen at you and you will remember her.  She is one actress that will have fans talking about their work, like when you played crazy Patty Williams on Y&R.  The audience was on the edge of their seats going, “Oh, my God!  What is Patty going to do next?”

STACY:  I never knew what she was going to do!

Photo: JPI

Eric, has Stacy come to you at any point where she been overwhelmed by the task at hand; playing Susan while playing Kristen, etc, and the two of you have a moment where you work through some of the challenges of complex scenes  … and ones where she is playing multiple characters?

ERIC:  We’ve had many moments  to speak of.

STACY:  I always come into Eric’s room, and am like, “I’m scared!”

ERIC:  It’s funny you mention it.  We have had some very emotional scenes, and Stacy – who cares so damn much about this job and portraying this character correctly – that she gets a little overwhelmed, and the material that they give her is overwhelming for any anybody on any level.  I have looked at her in the eyes, and said, “You’ve got this gig.  You are this character.  You are knocking it out of the park.  Just do it.  Just be you.”   I can’t wait for people to see some of the stuff we have shot recently and have been doing.

Photo: JPI

Stacy, do you think Kristen can be redeemed? Many characters on daytime … and on DAYS … have done horrible things and later turned over a new leaf.

STACY:  The thing is that villains are bad and all that other crap, but they’ve got a lot of stuff going on inside and insecurities, and they’ve got a heart.  I’m sorry, the villain with a heart of gold, can be very  true.  I never see villains (and I play them a lot) as bad.  You have to find where it comes from … how far does this go … where did that little seed change … and what made them go into the dark, but also, where is the good?  You want to bring the good to it, too.

ERIC:  Let’s face it!  Star Wars is all about Darth Vader and how he became that because it’s intriguing.

Because of the pace in which DAYS tapes its episodes; do the two of you find time to run lines together before you go hit the set?

ERIC:  We are running out of time to run lines.  It’s pretty wild.  Funnily enough, I was recently filming a movie and I was so underwhelmed at the pace of everything.  I’ve gotten so accustomed to moving at this militant style, that as hard as it is, it is preferable to me now.  I almost like it because you don’t have time to overthink what you are going to do, and you end up getting more visceral and natural reactions to the material.  You can overthink a scene, and you can come to a wrong performance that way.  When you burn your fingers on a hot stove, that’s the most natural reaction you are going to get.  You can’t have ten minutes to think about how you are going to scream about that pain.

Photo: JPI

But, would you like the pace of shooting the show to be a bit slower?

STACY:  I would like to, but I do think sometimes just jumping in, and going and seeing what happens is great.  I love that.  I do appreciate that.

ERIC:  It’s scary.

STACY:  It is scary.  I would love if we would get to do a rehearsal and then two takes just to see, and then they can mix  together what happens.  Sometimes I am hard on myself as an actress.  I’ve always been.  It’s that jumping in when you only get to do one take.  You have to just give it everything you’ve got.

ERIC:  You can have a second take.  Want me to give you a little secret?  All you have to do is screw up your last line.

STACY:  I can’t do that.   I don’t even need it to be perfect because nothing is perfect.  It doesn’t matter what I’ve done if I sometimes don’t feel it.  I need to feel it when I’m on that set.  I need to feel something because when I shut down, I close myself off.  It’s like an athlete who has just got to  train as hard as they can to reach their goal.

ERIC:  You’re an Olympic swimmer!

STACY:  You’ve got to do it as hard as you can.  You practice, and you practice, and you practice, and you practice, so that when you come to that day, you do the best you can, but sometimes you are disappointed because you didn’t get that one last thing you had hoped for.

Courtesy/NBC

How do you view what happened to Eric with Kristen, who disguised as Nicole, tricked Brady into bed with her?  Some fans commented that that they thought it was akin to a rape.

ERIC:  No, I would disagree with that theory.  I believe there is a high degree of deception in this, but there is a willingness on behalf of Brady.  He’s not drugged.  He’s not being forced to do anything.  Deception, yes.  Rape, no.

Stacy, what do you think?

STACY:  Total deception.  There is no rape.  There is absolutely no rape.  These are willing participants; he just doesn’t know exactly who he is dealing with.

ERIC:  I appreciate the context of how somebody could construe that, and the seriousness of the matter.  I don’t think it really has a place in this particular storyline.

Do you guys think that Brady and Kristen are each other’s star-crossed lovers in a weird, twisted, bizarre way?

ERIC:  I don’t know.  I think they’re magnetism can’t be denied.  I think the hurdles that they’ve jumped through are astronomical.  Will they end up together in the end?  Who knows!  Will there ever be an end?  Who knows!  It’s definitely been one of, if not the most, in-depth relationships Brady has ever had.

Photo: JPI

And intense!

ERIC:  Yeah.  They’ve just gone through so much to be together, and when you do that, anybody who is married knows that, that’s where the good stuff is; the wars that you win together and the battles that you go through.  When you come out of the war, and you’re still together, that’s the bond.  That’s what lasts.

What would Kristen do if she couldn’t have Brady in the end?  Would she find a new obsession?  What if she could not nab her man?

STACY:  Wow!  Hmmm. (Laughs)  She’s going to get her man.  She wants her man.  She wouldn’t settle.  She’d keep fighting.  I would say to her, “Kristen, keep fighting the good fight.”

So, do you think Kristen will reveal herself to Brady sooner than later? Will Brady figure out what Kristen has been doing to get to him?  Will Brady turn Kristen away if he knew she was alive and back in action  … or would he fall back into her arms?

Daytime Emmys To Merge Younger Actor & Actress Category Into One As Gender-Inclusive Categories Are On The Rise

The upcoming 47th annual Daytime Emmys are already making some changes to key categories and specifically this one that affects daytime drama performers.  Word from Variety is that NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) is going to announce that they are combining the Younger Actor and Actress categories into one gender-neutral category

Not only will the Younger performer category be gender-inclusive, but network soap performances will be combined with digital drama series performances for the category.  Previously, for this past Daytime Emmys, NATAS had changed the Guest Performer in a Drama Series to be gender-inclusive.

This category was initially created in 1985 when it was called the Outstanding Ingenue and then from there tweaked into Outstanding Juvenile Female and Male, and more recently that morphed into the Younger Actor and Actress categories.

Former GH star Hayley Erin (Ex-Kiki) and former DAYS star, Kyle Pettis (Ex-Theo) will now be the last female and male to win the two separate categories with this new move for 2020.

Fans of film and TV have noticed that on several award shows on MTV: their Movie and TV Awards and their VMA’s, there are several gender-inclusive categories, as well as the Television Critics Association Awards who for instance doles out Outstanding Individual Achievement in Drama in comedy.
