Louise Sorel Returns To Days of our Lives!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

A Days of our Lives representative confirmed to Soap Opera Digest on Wednesday afternoon, that none other than Louise Sorel has returned and is taping scenes at the NBC soap opera as the one and only Vivian Alamain.

Villainess Vivian has been on and off the Salem canvas since 1992.

The pairing of Sorel’s Vivian under DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati certainly seems like a soap match made in heaven!  It will be intriguing to see how Vivian returns to the canvas.

Robin Strasser (Ex-Dorian, OLTL) was tweeting about her pal Ms. Sorel, when she didn’t realize that Sorel’s return to DAYS had not been announced.  Strasser tweeted: “UH OH-is it supposed to be a SECRET #Vivian will SHOW #DOOL? I didn’t know-a SECRET? Oh crap SHOUT IT-La GREAT ONE returns-BEST NEWS ever!”

So, excited for a return by Louise Sorel to NBC DAYS? Comment below.

Wonderful my madam, Vivian will be back. Louise Sorel is a wonderful actress. Patrick I have a feeling Ivan her sidekick, will come back to Days really soon. Now Days need to bring back Anna Dimera pronto full time. Leann Hunley is my gal just like my Madam Vivian Alamain.

Oh, my Lord….thank you soap gods. I can’t believe it !!!! Finally, Vivian is back!!! I do hope the juciest, “meanest”, LOL. storyline is in the works for her. Can’t wait !!

Hi Celia, my madam Vivian will be back, that is terrific news. I hope Days sign Louise Sorel to a contract. Give Vivian a good storyline, and the ratings will hit the roof.

O, I know how much you love our grande dame, Claudio. Probably more than I.
There is something very magical about Ms Sorel….je ne sais quoi? Non so che? ( do you speak Italian?—-Claudio is a very, very, very Italian name, LOL) …love it !!!!
There’s a famous Italian singer (50’s-60’s), Claudio Villa …..my husband’s grandfather ( from Italy) has all of his music. Unbelievable voice.

Now, I have no doubt Vivian will leave us with our mouths agape….she is fascinating. And, yes!!!!!! May her sojourn last a long, long time—-indefinitely!!

Celia
Guest
Celia

You are dooo lucky, Claudio….two of the most rich historical cultures…you have the best of both worlds. Italian is the most melodic language —both verbally and musically—lest we forget, the poetry is music in itself. ( without the thousands of dialects—regional…LOL). Do we know if Louise has Italian in her background? She definitely has the look. We will enjoy her to our heart’s delight. —-she is always welcome. And, yes, you are right, Ivan completes the picture. They are a hoot together. I feel the same for Victor Kiriakis—bad boy that he is, does not matter. I love him to… Read more »

@CeeCee….Ms. Sorel was also quite wickedly fetching as Augusta Lockridge on Santa Barbara…not as maniacal as Vivian by any stretch of the imagination, but her coldly calculating—yet highly-soigne’—-presence always added much to the show’s dastardly festivities! (And as another piece of soap trivia, she was the older sis to Julia Wainwright, who was portrayed by “you-know-who?”…Hint: the person whose current GH character is my hands-down favorite to disparage!)

Celia
Guest
Celia

I never watched that soap. But, I trust everything that comes out of your mouth, Shaybelle.
Ms Sorel simply has a natural air/talent, and it does not go unnoticed.
HaHaHaHaHa. And, I enjoy every minute of your disparaging. If the shoe fits? Or should I say, glove?

Claudio
Guest
Claudio

Yes Celia, I speak Italian and Greek. My father is Italian, and my mom is Greek. I hope Ivan comes back with his madam Vivian.

Shay

As for Ms. Sorel, she was simply superb as the sharp-tongued sophisticate Augusta….along with Nicolas Coster as her long-suffering hubby, the bon vivant known as Lionel…whatta couple! Very eccentric and jaded in a moneyed sort of manner, but oh-so-fun! I miss those kind of wacky, off-the-wall characters on today’s soaps, although it sounds as though they may not be so extinct in Salem!

Celia

Hi, my Shay,
Ah-ha…..to your Jules post….Alexis will have to make do by knitting more booties for the time being. She needs to get him out of her system….poor thing. Perhaps not having a man in her life, for a while, will make her appreciate herself; know herself; respect herself—-she is a surviver, afterall.
As far as our Ms Sorel…love her forevermore. Love the looney-tune air about her. Everything she does, her wicked thoughts, her manipulations, her ‘sins’ ….all of it….all of her kill me!!
She is the best of the best, and I never tire watching her do her thing.

Shay

Hey, CeeCee…If you ever get the chance, check out some clips of Santa Barbara…it was a fun and frothy good time….often far-fetched, but highly-enjoyable. And so many impressive soap players—in fact, far too many to mention by name, but faces that would be familiar to you from numerous other series—passed through the doors of the Lockridge and Capwell mansions, including Sorel and Coster, but also Robin Mattson as the hilarious Gina DeMott Capwell and Justin Deas as her not-so-better half, Keith Timmons! Then there was the always roguish roue’, Mason, as portrayed by Lane Davies, and the aforementioned as his… Read more »

Yes yes my madam will be back, I have been writing on this site for along time for Louise Sorel to come back on Days. Vivian and Ivan were hilarious together, please Ron also bring back her side kick Ivan. Please sign Louise to a long term contract, she is a wonderful actress. My dreams have finally been answered, my darling Vivian Madam is back.

Awesome News. I am already watching every day, seeing the better dialogue and scenes like Roman (Josh Taylor) with Eric. Seeing the beginning of the use of ALL the talent available in a more ensemble way, the signature of Ron C. I read in Soap Opera Digest that he would not be creating any new characters….that was the greatest thing he could say to a long time fan like me. We don’t need Summer, Serena, Jordan, the Hernandez parents….there are 50 years of characters to bring back to the canvas. Days is already back to the top of my “must… Read more »

Omg- at the risk of sounding dramatic- I am in love with Ron C. He is clearly saving my all time favorite show. Days is entertaining in a way that it has not been in years. Sorell will be great under his writing. Ron is playing a much needed homage to Salem’s rich history- and the only reason long time fans tune in. Did anyone notice that his first episode included John(so much better looking with his new hair style) and Marlena in the very first scenes? Today ‘s episode is the best so far. By having Marlena and Hattie… Read more »

Great news!!! Ron C. is killing it with his writing and bringing back the favorites!

I hope Vivian is back long term. It’d be great if Ivan came back also.

Next can we get Celeste back? Played by the original actress of course, along with her psychic powers lol.

this would be the icing on the cake…. PURE JOY

I want her minimally to visit Theo.

God… it was FEAST when Tanya Boyd was Lexie Mother. and the arsenal she brought…. the cards do not lie.

one of my all time favorite mother/daughter pair.

Celeste and Lexie – WOW

I agree. Losing the actress that played Lexie was a big loss to the show. Lexie and Abe were great, and she played well with the DiMeras, Hope and of course Celeste.

Vivien and Ivan are my favorite platonic couple. They are pure comic relief.

My favorite quote was when Crystal Chappelle said of Vivian: she redecorates mausoleums more than most people redecorate their living room.

I can’t wait to find out who she shoves into a casket this time.

Loved RonC on GH. My only gripe is Paulson never kiss or have lovescenes like they used to. RonC is a pro on this. The man who wrote Kish and Brucas need to focus on Paulson or will will comes back there will not be a worthwhile triangle.

OMG – that’s an even better spin. Nicky and Aunt Viv.

I read that he could be Alexander Kiriakis… ??? readying him for leading the pack of the Kiriakis empire.. when UNFORTUNATELY, John Anniston readies himself retirement.

either or sounds fine to me. if this gives us more airtime with Adrienne and Justin.

oy – I can’t get your post from my mind. what a spin of immeasurable potential.

DAYS Olympic-Style Promo to Tide You Over Until It Returns

DAYS fans know from past Olympics, that when the games begin, the long-running NBC soap opera which gets a two-week preemption leaves its viewers with one hell of cliffhanger and this time they left viewers with two.

First, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) now knows that Sami (Alison Sweeney) cheated on him with Lucas (Bryan Dattil0) and apparently goes to confront her, but in true EJ fashion he does not let on that anything remiss. Meanwhile, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has “kidnapped” Ciara (Victoria Konefal) just before she was to walk down the aisle and marry Theo (Cameron Johnson). Cin fans were rejoicing here!

So, while the games of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which are not taking place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) are taking place, NBC delivered their own Days of our Lives promo Olympic-style to hold viewers over till we return to Salem.

Take a look at the promo below.

Now, let us know, which story are you most looking forward to most when Days is back on the air? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
