My hope is she is not leaving prematurely. MM is immensely talented. I wish her nothing, but the best. I will be keeping an out for her future TV and film projects. As Days tapes six months ahead I think under a year is incorrect. I do not watch regularly. Though, when Kate Manzi won her Emmy I think Marci had been filming for half a year or more. You will still see her as Abby for months yet.

It took me a while to get used to “her Abby” but she certainly has acting chops… just not understanding why she couldn’t wrap up her storyline. Now they are bringing in Kate Mansi again, to wrap and it doesn’t make sense since she will only be on to wrap. Very disappointing all around.

I cannot recall anyone leaving me with the impression that Marci Miller has done in her portrayal of Abigail Devereaux on Days of Our Lives. She was the perfect partner for Billy Miller (aka Chad DiMera). Together, with their superb acting abilities one was transported into their world as if it had been their real Life. I so loved the two of them together and I don’t think anyone can compare with that duo. I wish Marci Miller all the best in her future endeavours and I do so hope that she will come back to Days of our Lives.… Read more »

Super talented! Gorgeous! Hard-working; Marci Miller delivered an exceptional performance with her DID story. From the conversations with her other selves to her desperate cries for help from her loved ones in her head… to her almost film noir piano/singing sequences; she had me mesmerized. I forgot I was watching a soap but felt I’d entered an art house.

She took daytime to another level with her acting in that story. Sorry to see her go but I’ll be looking for her future projects.

Marci Miller really played the hell out of the role of abigail. She was quietly fierce and her chemistry with Chad was spot on. With that said her portrayl of Gabby hit me right thru the heart The tragedy of existing but not existing and fighting to stay “real” coupled with her desperation fueled love affair with stefan was unusual but i was rooting for them. Pleasant surprise…

I wish her Most Unholy success in the future. It’s just too bad that so much of her time in Salem was wasted on another ReRon vanity story.

I didn’t care for her Abigail in the beginning. She has done a phenomenal job and I personally will miss her portrayal of Abby very much. Few could carry out the personality storyline as well as Marci did. That female head thing she did for Gabby was the perfect touch. Made me laugh every time

Cady McClain IN As DAYS Jennifer Temporarily Replacing Melissa Reeves

Rumors that have been swirling are confirmed true.  Cady McClain is coming to Salem and Days of our Lives to replace Melissa Reeves temporarily as the new Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  The casting news was confirmed by a Days spokesperson, according to Soap Opera Digest.

Daytime fans recall, Cady is a two-time Daytime Emmy winner and has previously appeared as Dixie on All My Children, Rosanna on As the World Turns and Kelly on The Young and the Restless.  McClain has already begun filming as Jennifer.

Reeves, who commutes from Nashville to Los Angeles to tape episodes of Days of our Lives, decided not to return to set when the NBC soap opera resumed production earlier this month due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,

In addition, Melissa became a grandmother last month with her daughter Emily’s first child, and now soon will welcome her son Larry’s first child later this month, which is another reason Reeves chose to stay put in Tennessee.

So, what do you think of the Jennifer switcheroo? Excited to see what Cady brings to the role? Comment below.

‘Knots Landing’s’ Beloved Kevin Dobson Dead at 77

Knots Landing longtime fan favorite, Kevin Dobson (Mack McKenzie) has passed away at the age of 77.  The actor’s death was first reported by the United Veterans Council of San Joaquin County’s Facebook page.  Dobson died on Sunday, September 6th via “medical complications”.

However, The Hollywood Reporter had more clarity and reported that Dobson died Sunday evening in a hospital in Stockton, California, after struggling with an autoimmune deficiency. Arthur Toretzk, Dobson’s rep, shared that with the entertainment news outlet.

When Don Murray’s exited Knots Landing in 1982, Dobson was cast in the role of M. Patrick (“Mack”) McKenzie, the love interest for Michele Lee’s Karen.  Lee and Dobson became an undeniable favorite duo of the CBS primetime soap opera and for all-time in soap history.  During his run on ‘Knot’s from its fourth season to its conclusion in 1993, Dobson won five Soap Opera Digest Awards for his performances.

In addition, Dobson got his start in daytime soaps, and eventually wound back on them following the ending of ‘Knots’.  He first appeared on NBC’s The Doctors.

Marci Miller Opens Up About Her Decision to Return to DAYS and Her Concerns Replacing Kate Mansi

This week will mark the return of Marci Miller in the role of Abigail Deveraux DiMera on Days of our Lives.

The popular actress, who had been nominated for two Daytime Emmys in the Lead Actress category during her initial run on the NBC soap opera, revealed some of the complex emotions she had in determining whether or not to come back to Salem as detailed in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now.

Once again, Miller is taking over the role from her predecessor, Kate Mansi.  As DAYS fans know. Mansi won a Daytime Emmy for her work as Outstanding Supporting Actress in 2017 and first played the role from 2011-2016, then Miller took over the role.  Abigail’s last arc was played by Mansi when she returned from 2018- to the first part of 2020.  Miller had stepped away from the role in 2018 as she wanted to concentrate on other projects.

In regards to her comeback, Miller shared with SOD: “You never know how discombobulating it might be.  That was one of the things I had to weigh in coming back, was whether or not it was fair to the fans for me to accept (the offer) because Kate hadn’t been there for a very long stint. For them to do this flip-flop thing was a little bit of a concern of mine.”

Miller ultimately says she felt that it was better to have Abigail on the canvas, than not in all, and in the hands of an actress who was familiar with the role than a new actress to take over the part.

Make sure to check out SOD for more on Marci’s decision to return to the NBC soap opera.

Meanwhile, look for an exciting story ahead for Miller when Abigail gets back in action in Salem.

So, what do you think of Marci’s careful thought-process to coming home to DAYS? Comment below.
