The cat is out of the bag.  Marie Wilson has been back in Salem, and taping brand new episodes of Days of our Lives, but not as Bree, the woman from Aiden’s (Daniel Cosgrove) past who we saw earlier this year!

This time around on the long running NBC soap opera, this former As the World Turns favorite will play the role of Summer.  And Summer has quite the past it seems!  According to the casting breakdown originally posted by Soap Opera Digest, Summer was described as “a passionate loner who has been in and out of institutions and is a small-time thief.”

Wilson took to her Twitter account on Thursday when the news was revealed stating:  “I’m so excited to finally share this with you all!”

Wilson will first be seen in her new role sometime next year, since DAYS tapes six month in advance.

So, who do you think Summer will mix it up with in Salem come 2016? Glad to have Marie back on DAYS? Comment below!

She will be hired by Kate to model Teresas clothes she is designing and just as Teressa thinks she has another chance with Brady, Summer comes between them…maybe an old girlfriend of the returning Philip…no, im kidding,…not sure ill care for this character no matter who plays her unless her character is better developed and written than Serena was…hope Summer isnt into elephants…lol

I’m still drunk from playing the drinking game from anytime someone mentioned elephants on days. That damn statue got more airtime than some people did! Gave a whole new meaning to the phrase “the elephant in the room”!

Can we at least allow Lucas time to mourn his son?

Why get rid of people just to hire more? Paige certainly could have been saved and decent story written for her. Will could have been recast and had another personality transplant.

They should have killed Paul off instead of Will.

Paige should have been saved as a young heroine for future generations…i wouldve settled for a Will recast but i seen improvement in Guy Wilson over the last few weeks…he might have been able to make the character his own had he stayed just a little longer…Days had bad boy JJ and other established young characters like Paiges friend Daphne and JJs friends Rory and Bev—they should used these characters in youthful storylines insread of aging Ciara ect. and bringing in other newbies!

Amen! Change doesn’t always mean better or more exciting or make up for lack of good writing.

I agree, Paul needs to go. I liked Paige. They didn’t give her a chance to really get totally settled !!!

Me too Elaine, I loved Paige so much. In the beginning I hated her character. But all of a sudden, I was rooting for Paige. She is a terrific actress. I hope they fire Kiki on General Hospital, and hire True O Brien ex Paige as the New Kiki Jerome.

I love Marie! She has such a natural warm presence on screen. Hopefully she will not be another Madison/Serena…that is…a good actress wasted in a pointless role.

I find it interesting that the character breakdown makes a point of mentioning that Summer has been “in and out of institutions.” I wonder if she turns out to be the friend Gabi was delivering a letter for.

I love Marie Wilson – I wish she would head over to ” Y & R”!!

Isn’t Summer short term also? She was when they announced they were casting for her.

I only know this actress from her stint on ATWT. I didn’t care for her.

I agree Barbara from Atlanta she was one of the worst recast as Meg Snyder along side Roger Howarth the recast Paul Ryan who takes the same character from soap to soap and Kelly Menighan Hensley as the perpetually crying Emily Snyder another recast but much better one..but that girl was in tears every other day…LOL

Patrick

I was so …. in love…with Melanie Smith ie: 1997-2000

she left… ??? befuddled me… for…. ? greater pasture?

so be it… she married and to this day still is

it took me a long while… to accept Kelly Menighan Hensley

she’s bedding Jon Hensley

that’s all that matters

Thanks. I agree with the others that you named. I didn’t like them either.

I never got use to the “new” Emily. Almost 2 decades after the part was recast with Menighan, I always thought about the prior actress, Melanie Smith, every time that Emily appeared. Smith was great in the role; she even looked like she could be Marie Masters’ (Susan’s) daughter. I never bought Menighan as Emily.

I was a huge ATWT fan for its first 35 years. I have a less favorable opinion about its final years. It always seemed to me that the producers/writers intentionally “killed” ATWT through horrible decisions (writing, recasts, new characters).

Fair or not, I associate certain actors (such as Marie Wilson and the others you named) as being a part of the “killing” of ATWT. I, for one, don’t care to watch them in anything else. I had my fill of this folks as ATWT died.

To be honest who is she? I dont ever remember seeing her before

Oy. It just keeps getting worse.

I’ve never cared for this actress in any role that I’ve seen her in-I don’t think we need any new characters on canvas. Let’s focus on the characters that we have in town already. Some, we hardly see now!

The character sounds like a Jordan repeat.

Final Season of ‘EastSiders’ Starring Kit Williamson and Van Hansis Gets Premiere Date on Netflix

The fourth and final season of the much heralded LGBTQ series, EastSiders now has a premiere date of December 1st on Netflix, and fans of the show will see how things will play out for the Silver Lake duo of Cal  and Thom, who have gone through quite a lot in their relationship over the last three seasons.

EastSiders stars series creator, Kit Williamson (Cal) along with As the World Turns favorite, Van Hansis (Thom).  The last six-episodes that comprise season four will tackle questions such as… what does commitment really look like in a long-term relationship? And what unique challenges does a “gay marriage” present?

In story, Cal and Thom are back home in Los Angeles following season three’s cross-country road trip.  The guys are still trying to figure out if they are just best friends with benefits, or more, or less, than that.

Elsewhere, Douglas (Willam Belli) and Quincy (Stephen Guarino) are engaged to be married, but with very different ideas about what a gay wedding should be. Hillary (Brianna Brown) and Ian (John Halbach) are cohabiting peacefully; and Jeremy (Matthew McKelligon) and Derrick (Leith M. Burke) have taken a huge step in their relationship by fostering a child.

Deadline broke the news of the premiere date and the many special guest stars from primetime and more to look forward to this season.
