Marci Miller Final DAYS Episode Airs Today As She Shares Heartfelt Goodbye: “Thanks For The Sweet Ride, Abby”

Courtesy/NBC

In two years time, Marci Miller became a household name in the daytime arena as one of the brightest talents to grace the soap opera genre in a very long time.

Now today on Monday November 19th, viewers of Days of our Lives are watching her final episode as she wraps up her run as Abigail Deveraux on the NBC soap opera.

And what a run it was! Earning her a Daytime Emmy nomination for Lead Actress this year, and a possible nomination next year, Miller was heralded for her gut-wrenching performances in the DID storyline (Dissociative Identity Disorder) where she played Abby’s alters, Dr. Laura and Gabby.  Not to mention her complex love story with Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn).

On key episodes today, Miller’s Abby goes toe to toe with a vindictive Gabi (Camila Banus) who gloats how Abby ended up back in a sanitarium … thanks to her!

Miller made the decision to leave DAYS and pursue a career in feature film and primetime TV roles

In an Instagram post, Miller shared:”This is a picture of me 2 yrs ago, painting my nails (and a dear friend’s while I’m at it) for a screen test the next morning to play a woman named Abigail Deveraux Dimera on Days of Our Lives. Who would’ve thought?! This morning I sit in the same exact spot knowing that today, my last episode will air as this beloved character. I reflect, and am grateful. I am better for having been a part of it all. Knowing I’ve laid her in a pair of loving and capable hands does me good. Thanks for the sweet ride, Abby. My heart is full today. Xx #Days #Milly#Chabby”

Thank you, Marci! I enjoyed every minute of your presentation of Abigail. From frail and broken to strong and determined, your interpretation of Abigail made the viewers believe and connect to her every emotion. You and Billy will be so missed.

I was never taken by/with Marci Miller. I found her to be a very “Plain Jane,” except when she was dressed in the black Gabi wig. Then, at least, she had some spunk.

Marci..what a rare find: Soulful, soft, vulnerable, graceful, a classic beauty,.as ‘Gabby’ she was edgy, sexy, angry..
Marci was a revelation in her too short portrayal as Abigail!.. wow! She was impossible to look away from and capitivating. Her run as Abby/ Gabby will be a Days classic for the books!She was a powerhouse as the Abby in and out of the psych hospital, heartbreaking and tender yet angry in her scenes on the brink of sanity!
She is on my short list of best actresses on tv. You ofcourse will be missed. ..come home to Salem soon!

Will miss you Marci, but you must be happy getting away from Billy and his murderous act of killing Chad, as we knew him. They call Abigail crazy, but these last few months of Chad/Billy acting is certifiable. He acts like he’s on drugs or something. Doesn’t speak clearly, just stutters and stamners, it hurts to watch him anymore. I wish you the best and could hardly watch what they have done to Abby, these last month’s.

Of course on the first day I saw Marci as Abigail, I was resistant. I wanted Kate to stay, but damn, it was literally the next episode, I was like, who the hell is this girl and where has she been hiding?!!! You blew me away, and I’m sure, everyone else feels the same. You are so frigging amazing Marci, and I expect to you holding an Emmy next year! I will follow your career and wish you the best, but you got this girlfriend! OMG, I can’t wait to see who gets your talent!!! Your scenes during the height of her DID absolutely were up there with Oscar-worthy talents, and I know we haven’t seen the last of you. Good luck, thank you, and happy Thanksgiving Marci.

I love you Marci so sad to see you go. Days just wont be the same without you. I am already missing you. You brightened up my Days. Even my best friend commented how well you play Abby. Good luck to you in whatever you decide to do. I just bet we will see you in some Lifetime movies. There have been plenty of Days stars in Lifetime movies. I could relate to Abby since I have four mental illness’s myself. You will certainly be missed.With love,Carol

Too bad Marci’s Abby never got to get the upper hand on Gabi before she left. Gabi has been so disgusting lately that I would prefer she be written off (the actress will probably leave when her contract is up in April). I feel embarrassed for Marci with the stupid Gabby storyline this past year. I was hoping they wouldn’t bring it back, but even on Marci’s last day the damn wig was there. It was obvious that the show loved Marci and writing for her, but I don’t blame the actress for taking off once her contract was up.

Carol

Marci you are the best,I hope that you have a very happy holiday season. God bless you and good luck on whatever you decide to do. You will be missed. Perhaps someday you will find your way back to Days as someone else.I love you.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
