Kassie DePaiva Pens Love Letter To Fans: “It Has Been My Honor and Pleasure To Work On Days of our Lives Over the Last Five Years”

She has been an enduring favorite on daytime dramas from her work as Blair Cramer on One Life to Live and General Hospital, her time as Chelsea on Guiding Light, and of course, her most recent popular role as Eve Donovan on Days of our Lives. Actress Kassie DePaiva in the process has made whole lot of fans and now as the holidays draw near, she took time out to post a special shout out and love letter to the fans of soap opera.

Detailed with it, is DePaiva confirming her upcoming departure from the NBC soap opera.  But as fans of the long-running series know, just because a character makes an exit, doesn’t it mean they won’t return sometime in the future, whether they are in story dead or alive!

Kassie expressed: “Thank you soap opera fans for all your love and support.  On New Year’s Eve, once again, Eve Donavan will leave town after wreaking havoc.  I just want to send a big love letter out to all of you that have watched and supported me over the years.  As you know, I love working in Daytime.  It has been my honor and pleasure to work on Days of our Lives over the last five years. Eve is an interesting and challenging character to bring to life.  As you know, actors don’t get to write their own storylines.  It is always a challenge and a delight to open the scripts and see where the writers are taking the story.  My hope is that you enjoyed the journey because I certainly did. I wish all of you a Joyous holiday season. Be kind and loving to all.”

I know Kassie has her fans, but let’s be honest.. she was never believable as Eve Donovan. I’d really like to see the REAL Eve return one day, but let’s hope the departure of FauxEve is a permanent one.

I agree. Charlotte Ross is the one and only true Eve Donovan.

Kudos, to Kassie
She knows when the writing is on the wall, and sent a coded message to her fans Satan!
I hope the real Eve for you appears to say goodbye, ’cause days is in the can, just like Oprah.
just sayin

Eve’s gone. Eric’s gone. Sarah’s gone. And I know there will be more to come. At least i know how DAYS got the one year renewal when they were supposedly cancelled. Yeah, they’ll save alot of pennies but we lose with the good talent written off. Probably would have been better if they had left the show as a “gone but not forgotten” thing. I’m sad for the characters and the actors who play them

Sarah’s in the preview next week (hugging Xander), and Eric is coming back at some point too.

Please correct the spelling of Eve’s name in in this article. It is not Donavan but rather Donovan.

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.

Today is a bittersweet day for longtime daytime favorite, Galen Gering.  While on Wednesday; he is celebrating his birthday! (Happy birthday, Galen!), he is also finishing up his last day at Days of our Lives as Rafe Hernandez; a role he has played for the last ten years-plus.

In a heartfelt posting on his Instagram, Galen shared special thanks to all of his fans who watched his during his run in Salem.

Gering expressed: “Thank you all so much for the incredible birthday wishes. I’ve always seen birthdays as a day of reflection, an opportunity to look back at where I’ve been and where I’m going. So, it’s oddly befitting that today also happens to be my last day at Days. Man…I have such great memories from the last 10 years. Onscreen I’ve fought for marriages and fought evil twins. I’ve put people in prison and been imprisoned. And offscreen, I’ve made friendships that I will have for a lifetime. All the while, I’ve been so fortunate to have the love and support of the greatest fans in the world. I hope you know how thankful I am to have had you at my side. With that said, the journey continues and I hope to bring you along for the ride. Thanks for the memories Days of our Lives. Like sands through the hourglass… Love Y’all”
