Four actors have been apparently shown the front door in the ever-changing face of the canvas of Days of our Lives.

This time, in a report from Daytime Confidential, Martha Madison  and Brandon Beemer are once again put as Belle and Shawn, as well as Marie Wilson as Summer, and Sal Stowers as Lani.  Madison confirmed her exit with a bittersweet tweet, “Au revoir Salem! #Leo #NineLives” 

According to the item, Stowers was actually let go at the end of 2015, but because at the time DAYS was taping so far ahead she is still being seen on air at this time.

Obviously, part of the new DAYS head writing team of Ryan Quan and Dena Higley’s first order of buseinss had to be to take a look at the canvas they inherited under Josh Griffith, and make some decisions on the characters who’s storyline were lackluster.

DAYS viewership is once again down, after hitting a high note back in November of 2015, and then again in the first weeks of January of 2016.

So, what do you think about the upcoming exits of the reported actors and their characters of DAYS? Share your thoughts below!

Yes, I agree, Kar.
What are they doing to Days? I love this show. I loved Will and Sonny….please come back.
So now that ‘they’ have zapped Paul’s brain, are they straightening him out? If TPTP do that, I will scream. I bet that when Paul is completely lucid, he will not be gay any longer. I hope I speak too soon.

I’m all for giving a newbie a chance to find her fit or interruption in a role. Unfortunately, new Ciara is not up to the task of this demanding role. She should be thanked for her time and politely shown the door.

Actually, she’s pretty good it’s the role that is awful and going nowhere fast. Sal Stowers needs to get in a night time series, she has potential and I think the show needs ethnic diversity.

This is sad news about Sal Stowers. I enjoyed her performance in the online All My Children. Why was this character brought to Days? Other than revealing who her family is, they haven’t done anything with her. Seems like such as waste to me. A waste of Sal Stowers time and talent. And a waste of money paying her salary since they weren’t going to do anything with her. Perhaps TPTB could have used that salary to build an office set so characters could discuss their troubles in private instead of in that damned park.

So the Belle Sean Phillip triangle that has been a repeated failure failed again? I’m shocked said no one.

I don’t understand what Ken C is thinking. They take quality actors and stiff them with really sub par material. I’m as confused as anyone about what they are doing here. Other than the teens, there are capable actors sitting around waiting for something to do.

So, six months of teen daughter warbling before we sink this leaky boat and never speak of it again. Ugh.

Actually, Sal Stowers plays Lani not Cassandra. I had watched DAYS since the 70s and they were like family. But after Hope was almost killed on her wedding night, beloved Bo died, Patch slept with Ava, Abby was kidnapped while pregnant, more violence, Hope shot Stefano, a forced Hope/ Rafe pairing, Jen became hooked on pills, Eric killed Daniel, and then (the last straw)…Ciara was raped….I had to stop watching. I no longer make an attempt to catch the show. I may turn it on for a few minutes but then turn it off. it’s the MOST depressing and dark… Read more »

I saw great potential for the Lucas/Adrienne and Justin/Eve pairings. Too bad TPTB didn’t see it. I don’t know anything about the Sarah character you mentioned; but, Melissa Archer is a very talented and powerful actress. Giving solid material, she will deliver a great performance.

@mrsnoahdrake, I feel the same about the return of Belle & Shawn, including, the brief return of Jason Cook as Shawn D.

In a way. .I loved having a piece of sami-ness back in Belle. .but I have to admit Martha needed time to re-acclimate to Salem. .how embarrassing for marie Wilson. .I would never answer another job offer from days if I were her. .Sal. .well still a green actress no real story to grow into. .Brandon is always good when the writing is. .Dena is going to write the farewell year of days in 2017..this show has run its course because no one in daytime can come out of the past in order to change the landscape. #farewellSalem2017

I knew exits were coming, just really sad it is Belle & Shawn. Yes, the material for them could be better. Change the material & not can the actors. With Bo dead, we need his son. As for Sale, I hate that the African American/ethnic scene never grows or lasts. Summer was a bad choice. Really hope they don’t can MBE & SN next! Always love “Kayla” & in my opinion the Brady canvas needs her.

The character of Summer hasn’t been working at all, so Marie Wilson’s departure is not a surprise. IMO, Martha Madison hasn’t really fit into the canvas this time around, and I can blame the writing, but whatever the reason, Belle hasn’t been a success. I know TPTB wanted to give Abe a story, but even with the arrival of a daughter he never knew he had (which is an overused way of introducing a new character), Abe still didn’t have story, and there were times when Sal Stowers was not up to the task, IMO. As for Brandon Beemer, he… Read more »

Yes, focused storytelling, I like that Beth. I agree. I would love for Nicole (Ari Zucker) to get that, Nicole is finding her way after losing Daniel, but I feel she is stuck in this business with Theresa for the sake of giving Nicole something to do. Ari is such a great talent, it would be great if DOOL would give her a focused storyline. I loved her connection with old/new Parker. DAYS utilize Ari Zucker, she is gold when given worthy material.

Jim Preston

It’s sort of like they are all treading water over at DAYS….things aren’t working here and there – I get the feeling the powers that be are not sure what the next move should be –
The character of Belle is uninteresting, at least to me. She is quite attractive but vacuous, there isn’t any real depth there, so I find I don’t care about her. She does not have any real chemistry with any other characters that I can feel.
At least, that’s my overview.

I am surprised at the exits of the Shawn and Belle characters—I love Marie Wilson so I had been wishing that she would have stayed longer—I’m not trying to be mean but the teens who took over from the young actors don’t hold a candle to the children who played those parts (Ciara, Chase and Theo)—I am terribly missing the little girl who played Ciara. Something tells me the bloodbath isn’t over yet and there will be more exits coming within the next few weeks.

I have mixed feelings about Shawn and Belle leaving-most of the teens shouldve been showed the door except for Theo-i like this actor but its the no talent teen scene that hurts this show…but Summer was a mistake and im so glad she is leaving…Melissa or Sarah-Maggie’s daughters should have been brought on instead…had Melissa Archer played Sarah that would have been great…she couldv’e been involved with Philip but sneaks around with Deimos as both plot against Victor to steal his fortune but Sarah develops true feelings for Philip and has a change of heart about helping Deimos…Lani can go… Read more »

I was really enjoying see the story develop further, with Belle and Philip, and the new develops with Lani and Shawn, I was hoping to see more of Martha, and Brandon. I’m quite shocked that Martha Madison was let go; I’m really liking her version of Belle. As for Marie (Summer) being let go, I’m so okay with that. The development of Summer was a dismal failure from the start. And, Sal Stowers as Lani was developing slowly, though I would have preferred more interaction with… Read more »

First of all, I hate to see actors lose their jobs. Best of luck to their next chapters. It seems that DOOL has lost almost all of the momentum that was happening during the high-rating period in November. Today, the show is unrecognizable. There have been so many new characters introduced in the past four months, along with losing so many fan favorites that it feels like a different show. I have stated before that I have been a fan since the late 1970s. I want this show to survive. But, it seems with all of these writers changes, the… Read more »

Sad to see Belle and Shawn go. Does this mean they are taking Claire with them?

Not sad to see Sal go or Summer.

I have some others who should go or be recast starting with Ciara.

What about Philip? He was hooked up with Belle. I don’t like the recast so I wouldn’t mind if he left.

I don’t watch the show anymore but those *recasts*. They should dump the teen set next starting with the annoying Ciara. Some characters were not meant to be recast. No one does Shawn D better than Jason Cook. So glad I’m just sticking with GH! Don’t miss Days at all.

Steven
Guest

Even though renewed, DAYS is apparently in disarray and has lost their way!
Now I’m starting to wonder if Josh Griffith was forced out (than leaving on his own).

Even with these casting cuts, I don’t expect anything new from Dena Higley & Ryan Quan. I bet they will continue on the same very dark track they’re on right now: bringing in characters (old & new) and not knowing what to do with them (having no clear direction) and rewriting history in order to fit in the storyline.

DAYS really needs a new Head Writer(s), because this regime just isn’t cutting it!

Iakovos
Guest
Iakovos

I can appreciate a new writing team’s prerogative to shift but Salem is crazy of late. The appeal of daytime drama is bonding with characters and the actors who play them. Please stabilize the landscape in Salem and focus on crafting solid appealing stories and making them work. Also, if we are going to say goodbye to characters, then develop the ones who remain and populate them in those new tales of romance, adventure, family, and daily life.

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

Although I hate to see people lose their jobs I think these cuts were necessary. These characters bought nothing to the show, and the fact I don’t even know who Cassandra is says a lot about how little I’ve been paying attention to the show at the moment. Unfortunately we still will have to wait until after the Olympics this summer to see what this team is doing, and that is a lot of time to kill. Best thing they could do for this show, which they are addressing is shorten the time between filming and airing episodes.

Mary SF

Okay, the character Lani is being axed, not Cassandra but is there a Cassandra because the name doesn’t ring any bells with me?

Cassandra was Sal Stowers character name on the Prospect Park relaunch of All My Children, where she played Angie’s (Debbie Morgan) daughter.

Jim Preston
Guest
Jim Preston

She was very good as Cassandra on the Prospect Park version of AMC so I admire Sal Stowers but her character on Days of Our Lives is boring and not connected to anyone romantically – so I guess they just stopped developing her role. She will most likely just leave town to accept a Police department assignment elsewhere – I mean it’s obvious the character is not growing or evolving or doing much of anything at all.

DAYS is so inconsistent. I was so excited during the 50th Anniversary stories but since then I feel like there has been a significant downward spiral. The stories seem very dark, with very little light/joy to balance things out. I was looking forward to getting reacquainted with Belle and Shawn so their sudden departure is disappointing.

Jim Preston
Guest
Jim Preston

Inconsistent is a good choice of words – that really sums it up. Too many disconnected storylines, and some atrociously written ones as well. I personally do not mind Belle and Shawn leaving, to me they just don’t add anything exciting to the show. They should NOT have killed off Will Horten and they should have attempted to recast Sonny. What in the world does Paul have to do? The Kidnapping story was terrible, mercifully short that it was….I am referring to Paul being kidnapped by John’s crazy father, that was absurd.

Here are a few suggestions: 1) Bring back Sarah and Melissa Horton – Their children can be the next generation of DOOL. 2) Why not introduce some of Sonny’s brothers? 3) Recast Abigail pronto. 4) Continue to trim the cast of dead weight to save money. Then, offer Allison Sweeney, James Scott and Eileen Davidson the moon. 5) Introduce a powerful African-American family that can mix it up with the Hortons and Bradys. Debbi Morgan as the new Valerie Grant would be EXCELLENT casting. I would love to see her mix it up with Vincent again. This would also allow… Read more »

I’m not a committed Days viewer and this is why. Their constant writer and cast changes give the impression of haplessness, grasping and desperation. The subliminal message to viewers is that the show is unsteady and unreliable. The takeaway is a reluctance on the part of viewers to invest time, energy and loyalty in a show that can’t seem to get its act together and treats them with a sometimes callous disregard. How can an audience commit to a character and a story line when the show can’t? Moreover, why should they? The show is training people to remain uninvested… Read more »

I agree with Mister Media – I have the overall feeling that the show seems hopelessly adrift. Just because I am an “older viewer” doesn’t mean I object to young people storylines, but the “teen scene” on this show is truly an atrocity to behold. The so called “teen rape” scene was so badly executed and acted that I sincerely feel embarressed for the show. I enjoyed JJ when he was with Paige – and for whatever reasons, the chemistry just isn’t there when he is with Gabi – and it’s a little too hard to buy the fact that… Read more »

Why does Days continue to make such bad decisions? All the producers need to do is listen to fans, who say repeatedly that the teen actors are not skilled enough to get so much screen time, that relationships among meaningful characters are important and that the show relies too much on violence and shock to (unsuccessfully) create drama. I think Clair is a better actress than Ciara, but neither she nor Shawn figure much in Hope’s recent troubles. You wouldn’t know they were her son and grand-daughter.

Big mistakes with Belle, Shawn, and Lani too (IMO). All 3 of these are legacy characters and should be on canvas to drive story for these 3 major families (Blacks, Brady, and Carver).

I agree, as I think it’s fair to say most viewers would agree, that the Teen players on this show are dreadful.

With the summer months just ahead, it wouldn’t surprise me if they concentrate even MORE on the younger set unfortunately – Now that Phillip is forming his own Record company, because well everyone does that when they can’t think of something else to do, of course Claire will be his first (and probably only) client even though her… Read more »

Agree with Mary SF about shortening the time between taping and airing..then when things aren’t working, like Belle, Shawn and Phillip and especially Summer, the teens…they can fix them quicker then having to wait months for them to play out….again, they should have had Ben come back take the town hostage, then blow it up right before the Olympics and when it returns you find out who survived, who died, etc….and the writers could refocus the show and get it back on track….the could have taken out half the cast and retooled it to the characters that works….just a thought….

This is not surprising. DAYS has never known how to write for Austin and Carrie or Shawn and Belle. As far as Claire, she is actually the closest to her real age. She is suppose to be 15 and she was born on screen in 2005. So she hasn’t be SORASd that much. But with Shawn and Belle hone, are they still bringing Chloe back?? Shawn/Belle/Phillip/Chloe is the age group that should be carrying the show. They’re in their 30s now.
