Linsey Godfrey Exits DAYS and Shares “Thank You for the Opportunity to Play Sarah”

Photo: IMDB

On Tuesday, Linsey Godfrey took to social media and revealed that she is done at Days of our Lives.  Godfrey had taken over the role of Sarah Horton back in 2018.

Previously, Linsey portrayed Caroline Spencer on The Bold and the Beautiful for six years- four on-contract and two on recurring status.

In her farewell to Days of our Lives post, Godfrey shared via a tweet: “It’s truly been a pleasure. A massive thank you to @nbcdays for the opportunity to play Sarah & all 86 of her hairstyles. Thank you to casting, production and the crew! Also thank you to the amazing cast I got to work with! I have made some lifelong friends that I cherish.”

Godfrey will last air in scenes on March 22 and 29th.

As fans have seen in story, Sarah is being held captive by Kristen (Stacy Haiduk), who has hatched another one of her schemes, and fans will see over the next few weeks how that will play out.

So, sad to hear Linsey is leaving DAYS? Comment below.

I am shocked and saddened; I genuinely loved seeing Linsey Godfrey as Sarah Horton, and genuinely enjoyed seeing her being given material worth her weight… something she lacked at The Bold and the Beautiful. Given her mental health and other battles, and I am not saying her exit is due to this, I am not entirely surprised to hear of her exit. I am hoping they do not kill her off, and allow her to eventually return down-the-line.

I am going to stop watching Day of our lifes everyone is leaving,you can get out of jail and not be missed,if Ben was with cierra he was tearing up the appartment he would have killed her. Days is real sloppy now it was neverlike this. The writers are terrible a lot od Days make no sense a room in the house that no one know about.

Well, that is a bit of a shocker, as Rex is back, will Sarah return to Rex? Will Kristen lock Sarah up for good? I like Linsey a lot. I loved when Linsey first came on, her hair was longer and I liked it a lot better than how short it is now. I also liked her a lot with Eric, too. I am wondering if Melissa Reeves is coming back and Linsey doesn’t want to work with her. She’s been very vocal (on social media) and rightfully so of “likes” on Twitter last year by Reeves. Including her co-stars… Read more »

Her leaving has nothing to do with Melissa Reeves. Many of the cast members had issues with Melissa Reeves political spurts, as well as other, and was let go.

I am sorry to see Miss Godfrey leave. I am more sorry that DAYS just seems in a whirlpool. Salem does not seem very authentic to me anymore. I wonder if it is time for a strong reboot of Horton family. I am weary of the continued DiMera madness. AM sure I am in a minority, but days in Salem seem like we have lived them over and over.

Anne
Guest

Lakovos – Days also needs a strong reboot of the Brady family as well.

Satan
Guest

Yeah… when they forced Will, Hope, and Ciara off the canvas, that depleted the Hortons & Bradys at the same time. And having Eric gone, Sami only turning up once or twice a year & Roman not even showing up for his own sisters wedding (which was in his own pub, for Hell’s sake!) is additional Brady damage.

Ciara’s back at least for the time being. And it looks like Shawn might stick around. So at least Bo & Hope’s kids are around. Hell, it’s a step in the right direction at least.

I am sick of days to much wrong doing and lying wrong doing doctors getting out of jail not being missed,getting face masks of other people it is not like it use to be and why can’t they keep their actors.you start watching and one day later the actor has disappeared.I AM FINISHED WATCHING DAYS

Jimmy
Guest

With the current writing regime, it seems like every 6 months the DAYS revolving door starts moving again. There’s always new characters being thrown onto the canvas, at the loss of popular characters and veteran actors. Hope, Jennifer, Eric, Will & Sonny have all departed the canvas recently, and I’d take any of them over Jake, Gwen or Paulina any day. Now we can add Sarah to the list. Hopefully this doesn’t mean the end of Xander, too.

Satan
Guest
Satan

Yep. This is what ReRon does. And General Hospital is still trying to recover from it (even though he’s been gone from there a while).

Decimating the original core family of Salem (Sarah, Jennifer, Will & Hope were all Hortons) can’t be good for business.

This happened even prior to Ron Carlivati becoming head writer, so cannot blame him for that one.

Satan
Guest
Satan

Well, I can’t blame him for the original Hortons getting old and dying off, obviously. But instead of writing the rest of them off, he should have brought back some of the others who were still alive. For example, why did Jennifer supposedly fly off to Boston to settle her mother’s estate with her brother Mike, when it would have been just as easy for Mike to come to Salem? Because he has a job there? That would probably be the reason given… though I don’t think Dr. Michael Horton would have a problem getting a job at the hospital… Read more »

I thought they missed an opportunity to better use Linda Dano and Robin Strasser. He could have made them a sister and advanced the plot as well as opened up new opportunities

Satan
Guest

Vivian Alamain is the type of character that just doesn’t work with a recast. If Louise Sorel doesn’t want to do it anymore, they should just let the character rest. Linda Dano might have worked better as her own character…. Hell, they could even make her Felicia Gallant. Another World didn’t air in Hell, but I saw a few episodes of that show over the years, and it was an NBC show, so they should have an easier time getting around the legal red tape. Cass Winthrop showed up on an episode of Homeland, and that’s on Showtime, for Hell’s… Read more »

I will say this: Linda Dano worked more for me than Robin Strasser did. The writing for Dano’s interpretation felt more aligned with Louise Sorel, while, for Strasser, it felt like Ron Carlivati brought on Dorian Lord, which is not what the role is.

The possibilities include…
1. Xander goes stag and becomes the rightful anti-hero heir of the Kiriakis family.
2. A rivalry-romance with Gabi could be hot… but Ron cannot write it.
3. Xander and a new character who is a doctor doing classified research for the U.S. govt. Xander steals the information, diverts it to a lab he controls through a front group and develops a vaccine that launches him to become head of Kiriakis Inc. Xander hires the new character to operate the facility. He romances her, until she learns that Xander is the thief.

Are there any Hortons left in Salem? Hell, Sarah technically wasn’t really one herself (Mickey wasn’t her real dad).

Guess Lucas & Allie are all that’s left of the family (at least those with the name) and considering how Days has treated Lucas in the past, Hell only knows how long that will last.

Yes, they’re all part of the family, but none of them go by the name “Horton”. At this rate, the Horton name will only exist on that plaque in the middle of the town square with Tom & Alice’s faces on it.

DOOL, PLEASE STOP THE MADNESS! Lindsey Godfrey did an amazing job as Sarah. Why get rid of her?!?! And ending her storyline at the expense of Kristen is just adding insult to injury. Sure, allow one actress to chew scenery with two roles while tossing aside another actress who is adept at drama and comedy. As I stated in another post, DOOL has virtually no stability, with long-term characters constantly coming and going, and with new characters coming and going (e.g., Charlie). The viewers are getting whiplash. I am not a doctor — I don’t even play one on TV… Read more »

Who ever said she was let go? How do you know it was not her decision to exit the role?

Jamesj75
Guest

Hey Scottie: It’s called speculation, just as what you did, suggesting that she left because of “her mental health and other battles.” At least we can agree that we both enjoyed her work in the role.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

James, I never stated it was why she is exiting, unlike you, who flat out stated: “Why get rid of her?!?!” That, right there, is not speculation. That is you stating something as fact when it is not verifiable as such.

What I said, and I quote: “Given her mental health and other battles, and I am not saying her exit is due to this, I am not entirely surprised to hear of her exit.”

I cover in my comment that I was not even stating this is reason for her exit. Two completely different type of comments.

So glad you replied again, Scott. Let’s just tone it down a little, shall we? To answer your original question directly, which is what I should have done: I don’t know whose decision it was for her to leave. Let me explain it a little better. I think we both have some wiggle room here. I am speculating, maybe even assuming, that she was let go, but I don’t know it as fact. You brought up the issue of her “mental health,” so you at least floated the idea of that possibility. I admittedly went further than that. I think… Read more »

Jamesj75 While I did enjoy and mostly agreed with your comments, there are a few I see differently. I like Linsey Godfrey but more so on B&B, when she was seduced by her husband’s older brother. She was a little too silly and flighty to play the professional Doctor/Surgeon, I thought. Iam also not liking the change in Abby and her revenge thing with the horrible Gwen, though I can understand it and how hurt she is that Jack is trying to make up for his lack of being daddy to Gwen, even though he knew nothing of her existence.… Read more »

Hello Violet: Thanks for your reading and replying to my somewhat lengthy post about DOOL. I also agree with much of what you’ve shared here, particularly with regard to Sarah’s being “silly and flighty to play the professional Doctor/Surgeon.” I still enjoy her immensely, even if sometimes the humor is a bit forced (problem with writing, not acting). I have not warmed up to Claire at all. We (and so many other viewers) are disheartened by the turn of events for Ciara and Ben. Just give them a nice reunion already! Enough with the roadblocks: glass and otherwise! With this… Read more »

If they brought Lindsay Hartley back, just bring her back in her original form (what’s one more Rolf zombie, after all, right??)

I’d much rather see Arianna Hernandez trying to save her little sister from doing anything else stupid, than see another previous Days actor return as a recast.

Also…. wouldn’t that really mess with Kristen’s head if Arianna came back to Brady?

Satan

Maggie is supposedly out of town, because one of her ridiculous retcon children (Summer)is dying from alcohol induced liver damage.

Sarah was the one kid that Maggie actually gave birth to. Daniel supposedly came from the same batch of eggs that Sarah did, and yet was 20 years older than she was, and Summer? Don’t even get a Devil started on how that character made zero sense. On either of her brief appearances.

Knowing how ReRon works, they will probably kill Sarah off so she can be a liver donor to her useless half-sister.

Kristen is now wearing a facemask to impersonate Sarah?!?! This is the laziest, stupidest, most unbelievable writing debacle yet. As it was when Kristen was wearing a Nicole mask. Somehow she is able to duplicate Nicole’s (and now, Sarah’s) voice?!?! And I think it’s obvious that Kristen is quite a bit taller than Sarah. So there’s just another element to the absurdity of this plot twist. Oh wait! Maybe Rolf has a miracle drug that temporarily decreases one’s height.

DOOL writers: unless you want viewership to further erode, please do better.

Yeah, as if the latex lines around her neck wouldn’t be obvious enough, Kristen has a big ass Phoenix tattoo in the middle of her back, to honor her daddy Stefano. Yet. she jumps into bed with Rex (to stage a scene for Xander’s benefit) and…. her back is clean. Is she wearing an entire latex mask suit now?? And how would that mask not come off if you’re rolling around in bed with somebody anyway?? Rex is supposedly a doctor. Surely he should have noticed something wasn’t right with his alleged “ex wife”. Apparently he still has some long… Read more »

I can barely stand to watch this debacle, it is so unbelievably absurd. First of all these women are no where alike in size. Lindsey/Sarah is much shorter and thinner and voices are no where the same. Lindsey has the tattoo on the back of her neck she’s always had, with no attempt to hide it, which is so stupid. I don’t even want to watch this crap. If they couldn’t make this stuff more believable, than why do it?

Jamesj75
Guest
Jamesj75

Violet, thank you for your reply. All this talk of tattoos! Yes, I noticed Sarah’s neck tattoo. Maybe we’ll learn that, on her way to meet Rex, Kristen stopped at the Salem Tattoo Shop and had a quickie duplicate tattoo etched into her skin. It all pains me to know we won’t be seeing Lindsey in this role for much longer… Take care.

Rachael White, Saved your butt on that one huh? She was annoying at times, but no more so than Susan Banks as played by Stacy Haiduk who makes her more obnoxious than ever.

What an exit and insult to the character and actress.

Good riddance to that character. Making a grown woman, and a doctor no less, act like a teen with air for brains was some bad writing. This actor was too good for this role. She did the best she could with what was written for her but I have to wonder if she felt like throwing up every time she had to act like a 15 year old with no brains. But she got to make out with a stud! Best of luck on your next role.

Now guys, this is very important to me, so hope someone has an answer, ha.ha. Really, on Friday’s show, we saw Kristen as Susan dragging in the huge trunk to Marlena’s apt. which I assume was empty of Sarah. How was she transporting said trunk to the “deserted island” back and forth to dispose of Sarah and why the hell bring it back to Marlena’s? and where is the trunk now ? This stupid stuff makes me crazy!!

Satan
Guest
Satan

Maybe she couldn’t leave the trunk on the “deserted island” because she thought Sarah might somehow turn it into a sailboat and use it to get home??

Which would be ridiculous, but no less so than carrying an oversized empty trunk half way around the world for no reason. On the other horn, if this is the same “deserted island” that Stefano banished Tony to all those years ago, Sarah could be there for decades before anybody realizes she’s missing.

Why the storylines always break up a couple now Sarah and Zande. Kristen holding Sarah hostage & now she have to break his heart. Zander changed and now what will he become now. I’m sick of Kristen now. She need to stay in jail and quit sgowing her with crazy self. Zander and Sarah made a good goofy couple.

Days just keeps getting rid of the good people no wonder why the soap is starting to stink! I’m pretty much done with the soaps. A persons political view should have no bearing if they are a great actor or actress. To many buttercups in Hollywood. It’s time to go back to the old VCR and DVD’s actually I have original soaps I tapped from many years ago. It’s fun to go back and watch them again when soaps actually had great story lines now days it’s trash it hopes back and forth and it’s off the wall.

Oprah Winfrey Helps Ellen DeGeneres Process Ending Her Talk Show & Tells Her She is ‘Proud’ of Her for Following Her Instincts

Oprah Winfrey was the once reigning queen of the daytime talk show, and that mantled was then passed on to Ellen DeGeneres, although their shows were at times, very different.

With the announcement by DeGeneres that she is ending her talk show after its 19th season which will run from fall 2021-into spring 2022, who else should be her first guest but the mighty Oprah who knows a thing or two about ending an enduring talk show.   Winfrey appeared virtually and praised Ellen for knowing it was time to call it quits and reflected on the ending of the Oprah Winfrey Show back in 2011.

Oprah expressed: “It’s almost 10 years ago …will be next week.  10 years ago when I was in this exact position. I know what those feelings are. I also know the feelings leading up to it. So hearing you say, and announcing to the world that it was your instinct, and that you thought long and hard about it … because anybody would know that for something that is as powerful as the show is in other people’s lives, that you would not take that lightly. And that coming to the realization that, ‘Now it is time,’ is a process.”

Ellen shared that her decision was about wanting to have, and do, and fulfill other creative outlets for herself.  When Oprah asked Ellen how she was feeling since she made the announcement and uttered the words, ‘the show is ending after its 19th season.’ Ellen responded:  “I didn’t rehearse the monologue. I knew what I was going to say, but the words hadn’t come out of my mouth. So I was okay until I started talking and it became real. Obviously, I got emotional because it’s real now. But I’m feeling good.  I feel like it’s the right thing to do, but I’m charged. It’s a weird thing to announce that I’m stopping.”   Winfrey then said, “I’m proud of you for trusting your instinct because I know that there has to be — as there was in the case for me — a lot of people around you that want to keep that train moving, who want to keep going.”

Winfrey said it was important that Ellen gave her staffers a one-year heads up, since so many of the people who work on the show built their financial and emotional and professional lives around it – and by giving everyone a year, it helps those that have worked on the show time to process and to figure out their next chapter, as well.

You can watch the entire conversation below.

Then let us know, do you think Oprah offered up great words of wisdom to Ellen? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Ellen DeGeneres On Her Talk Show Exit Says Personal Attacks Following Toxic Workplace Backlash Were “Too Orchestrated … It Was Too Coordinated”

This morning on The Today Show, Savannah Guthrie’s sit-down interview with Ellen DeGeneres aired in what was her first TV interview since announcing on her talk show on Wednesday, that she was ending her show following its upcoming 19th season.

All of this comes on the heels of last summer’s nightmare of publicity for her and the show, when allegations emerged that Ellen and her staffers fostered a toxic workplace environment, which saw key executives ousted, and reports that Ellen was not nice, which had already been noted throughout Hollywood, previously.

In addressing whether the situation ultimately brought her clarity to end the series, DeGeneres told Guthrie, it wasn’t the reason, but when Guthrie asked if Ellen felt if she felt ‘canceled’ amidst society’s ‘cancel culture’, Ellen expressed:  “I really didn’t understand it, I still don’t understand it.  Yeah, I thought I thought something was going on like that, because it was too orchestrated, it was too coordinated. And, you know, people get picked on, but for four months straight for me, and then for me to read in the press about a toxic work environment, when, when all I’ve ever heard from every guest that comes on the show is what a happy atmosphere this is, and how, what a happy place it is.”

Ellen also informed Guthrie it was emotional for her to tell her staff the show would be coming to a close after next season: “I’m glad that before it leaked, I got to tell my staff and my crew, from my own words – that they didn’t hear it anyplace else. Because I haven’t been sleeping. I’ve been trying to anticipate how to tell them and, you know, hope that everybody would take it okay. A lot of people were very emotional. I got emotional.”

On today’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres show look for Oprah Winfrey to be the special guest, which is sure to have the famous talk show hosts discussing Ellen’s exit from daytime.

Watch a portion of Ellen’s interview from this morning on the Today Show below.

What do you think of how Ellen is sharing that she feels the attacks we too orchestrated against her last summer? Do you agree, or not agree? Let us know in the comment section.

Ellen DeGeneres to End Her Talk Show After Its 19 Season

Ellen DeGeneres informed her staff yesterday that she has made the decision to end her talk show after its upcoming 19th season.  She will sit down with Oprah Winfrey on the May 13th episode of the The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss her decision to step away.

In an exclusive interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Ellen shared: “When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged – and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore.”

The show’s end comes on the heels of all of the turmoil last summer when several former and current employees accused Ellen of fostering a toxic work environment.  As well, several key producers were let-go as a result.

 

When speaking with THR, DeGeneres said of last summer’s revelations and accusations against her: “It was four solid months. And you have to understand, in that time, someone got into our house and robbed us and I lost four animals — three cats and a dog died. It was a tsunami. When it started, with that stupid ‘someone couldn’t look me in the eye’ or whatever the first thing was, it’s like a crest of a wave. Like, ‘This isn’t going to be that big of a wave.’ And then it just keeps getting bigger and bigger until it was out of control. And I really, honestly, felt like, ‘I don’t deserve this. I don’t need this. I know who I am. I’m a good person.’  And I was sitting back going, ‘If I was someone watching this, I would think, ‘Well, there must be some truth to it because it’s not stopping.’ Of course they’re going to believe this because I’m not addressing it because I was told not to and you can imagine what that felt like. And it’s a lot to live up to. I started saying “be kind to one another” because I really believe people should be kind to one another and so it was easy clickbait to say, ‘Oh, the be kind lady isn’t so kind.’ … I am kind, I’m also a woman and I’m a boss.”

Earlier this morning, The Daily Mall UK reported that Ellen DeGeneres and Warner Brothers, were expected to make an announcement that she will end her talk show after the 2021-2022 season.  According to their sources, DeGeneres told her team she “has had enough and told her team that she’s done.”

It should be noted that the The Ellen DeGeneres Show has seen a steady decline in the ratings as well.  The ratings for total households from February 2020 to February 2021 were down 40% in New York City and Chicago; and in Los Angeles it lost 59%.

Ellen’s talk show has produced over 3,000 episodes.

So, what do you think of Ellen deciding to conclude her talk show? Comment below.
