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.

Angelica McDaniel OUT as CBS Head of Daytime As Network Restructures

There has been a swift turn in the CBS Daytime hierarchy.  In news this evening, CBS Head of Daytime Angelica McDaniel has exited the network and her position, following a restructuring which dissolved her position.

According to Deadline:  McDaniel’s position is being eliminated as the network is folding the daytime team into the Current Programming department headed by Amy Reisenbach.”  Angelica had been with the company for nine years.

Reportedly, McDaniel’s last day at CBS was today.  The move by CBS now makes it similar to how ABC handles their soap opera, General Hospital as it is overseen by Vicki Dummer. who oversees all scripted series for the day-pa

Kelly Kahl, President of CBS Entertainment said in a stateement: “Angelica McDaniel championed our daytime series line up with creativity, passion and energy and broke new ground by helping launch the Network’s first daytime talk show in years while respecting the long history and tradition of the dramas and game shows. We appreciate her many contributions and wish her well on her next endeavors.”

McDaniel oversaw The Young and the Restless (who’s ratings have been on a decline of late) and The Bold and the Beautiful for the network.  She also was responsible for championing The Talk to daytime television.  Angelica was promoted over a short period of time by industry standards to her position after her accomplishments.

GMA’s Lara Spencer Says, “I Screwed Up” As She Apologizes For Insensitive Prince George Ballet Joke

After a major backlash, Good Morning America‘s Lara Spencer apologized Monday morning on-air during the ABC morning show, over comments she made last week over now six-year-old Prince George taking ballet classes.

In her apology, Spencer told GMA viewers: “I screwed up.  The comment I made about dance was insensitive, it was stupid, and I am deeply sorry.”

Several key figures in the dance community spoke out following her remarks, and Spencer herself also spoke to them over the last few days telling viewers: “I have listened, I have learned about the bravery it takes for a young boy to pursue a career in dance.”

From there, a previously recorded group interview Spencer conducted with three male dancers; Robbie Fairchild (Cats), Travis Wall (So You Think You Can Dance) and Fabrice Calmels (Joffrey Ballet), was shown as each expressed their personal journey and often the humiliation they felt as young boys when they were laughed at and made fun of because of dance.

All of this was kicked off by Spencer making a comment during the Thursday ‘Pop News’ segment on GMA, in which she talked about Prince George’s  “curriculum”.

Lara said in her commentary: “In addition to the usual first- and second-grade things like math, science and history, the future King of England will be putting down the Play-Doh to take on religious studies, computer programming, poetry and ballet, among other things.” She then paused which gave way to chortles in the audience and went on to say: “Prince William says Prince George absolutely loves ballet. I have news for you, Prince William: We’ll see how long that lasts. I mean, he might! He might end up … Between the religious studies and the computer programming, I just want to go back to the Play-Doh!”
