“I’m not surprised”

tortured heart

i’m tortured ; crestfallen

it was a matter of time that came to quick

Marci Miller : “sensation”

that’s not taken lightly ; as soon as she found her footing , the camera followed and spotlighted a new act

she should be featured

the nuance; her delivery ; is breathtaking. Kudos congratulations to this WOMAN

THIS IS A HIT.

smash all record . is she the first woman to land a best leading nomination for only 2 years on ?

TAKEN from @Wiki: “…In June 2016, it was announced that Miller had joined the cast of Days of Our Lives, in the role of Abigail Deveraux, making her first appearance on November 10.”

HIT for @DAYS : for sure… the whole cast is featuring… so at best my front seat is still filled. per the new thread Kate Mansi is returning..

what can you say when one snowballs and DAYS rode to the crest.

APPLAUSE

It took a little bit to warm up to her version of Abigail, but it was clear from the get go that she had the acting chops. I do think it is odd that she is leaving so soon. Don’t most new daytime talent get signed to three years or more? Has it even been two years? Front burner story, leaving out of the blue, seemingly way before her contract comes up for renewal – just curious circumstances. And the news that Kate coming back – but possibly only for a limited time? I’ve been wondering if Billy was half way out the door – what with the introduction of Stefan, and Chad being sidelined for much of this DID story. It just feels like the future of the Dimera clan is uncertain right now.

Damn shame that she’s leaving. Even more of a damn shame that so much of her time was wasted on ReRon’s 666th idiotic DID storyline.

This seems like a role thats either going to often be recast or written out for good…i see Ab being carted off for treatments like Rosemary Forsythe was when she played Laura…will they recast or not after KM brief return to the role i will wait and see!!!

Often after an Emmy nomination a soap actor is motivated to try to spread their wings and try to break into prime time or films– the work load is lighter and the money better– other actors are happy for the steady gig and count themselves bless to have the gig on the soap– to each their own– wish her well

Marci is a star is born mark my words. She reminds me of Julianne Moore. Shes smart to exit to captialize on primetime and movie opportunities. It was a huge surprise she cracked the lead category. One of the youngest actresses ever to do it. Buzz is she has a primetime show on the horizon

I hope this goes through the other day I could not post. I am so sad to hear about Marci leaving .I for one liked her a lot better then Kate. She played her roles to perfection .I have nothing against Kate I just like Marci better.However she has to do what is right for her.Good luck Marci whatever you choose to do Hey maybe you should try doing some Lifetime movies I have seen plenty of DAYS stars in them that includes Kate Mansi as well.If you ever decide to come back to days even if it was another character I would welcome you with open arms.God Bless.with love,Carol

If anyone is interested Marci can be found in the horror movie Children of the Corn Runaway Actually she is in two horror movies. That is good for me because I love Marci and horror movies are my favorite. From what I can see she has been a lot of movies.

Carol

Most likely do die is Marci’s other horror movie,She has such beautiful eyes. Do you like her better as a blond or dark hair? My friend and I think she looks better in darker hair.Dont get me wrong as a blond she is fine just that the darker hair brings out the color in her more.

I know the reason also why I loved the mental illness story so much except for some of the stupid cracks like we are looneys or nut cases,That is not true it is a chemical imbalance in the brain.I should know I have 5 different mental illness.I think it is good for people to see that having a mental illness is not a joke it is very real.I am lucky I dont have a split personality but mood disorders are bad enough.I can certainly relate to this story line and the way Abby is acting now I can see some of me in her she gets.Upset when she hurts someone which I always worry about that has a loving nature and kind heart.People who do have mental illness tend to be very compassionate towards others,Believe me I have seen it before nobody believes you when you are anxious they think it is all in your head .NOT Anyway I for one liked the story so did my best friend,People should read up on it more before they call us case squirrel bait

Marci also has a beautiful singing voice, I can sing to, it doesnt bother anyone because nobody has left there apts yet lol Actually I have been told by several people that I have a nice voice. Well I do love to sing. To be honest I wasn’t to sure if that was Marci singing or not on Days I had to look it up. She sings like an angel.

I will miss her. She was very good in the part. Never cared much for Mansi and not thrilled about her return.

Mar

I will miss her portrayal of Abigail. She was a more mature self confident Abigail. The former actress’ portrayal was too “immature, hopefully she will bring more experience than previously demonstrated

I’ll really miss Marci Miller. I think she was great in her role. I find it very hard to relate to Kate Mansi. At least she could have come back as a blond. What does that do to the story line with Gaby and the black wig. The story line has gotten so complex lately, that I’m probably going to give up the show completely.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?
