Sarah Horton recast?

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

That would be great to see her as Sarah…Maggie needs her daughter…its grown old and tiresome with Maggie and Danial plus Brady!!!

agreed!! anything she plays will be great!! maybe she’ll be a new love
interest for brady??

@jimh(leave it to beaver)…UMMM…Do I need to get a virtual bar of soap for that smarmy little mouth of yours maligning my beloved Suzanne Rogers??? How DARE YOU…I still have nightmares of those crutches and her valiant fight to walk again…OH THE BLASHPEMY…Maggie will NEVAH get tiresome. But I love all your other posts even when things get you down…YA GOT FRIENDS HERE…but don’t ever….(:

I also would like her to be Sarah!

You may recall that Sarah is Maggie’s child by artificial insemination.

When I started watching DAYS, the alleged father was Evan Whiland (spelling?) and he was already off canvas. A few years later, Neil Curtis was revealed to be the father because he hated Evan. So, maybe Sarah’s half sister Noelle can turn up to visit, along with Neil and Liz!!!

Yes ! thank you JimH. Mother Horton and Daniel… have weathered the storm… and have called it all dull

even Jennifer Horton boudoir… is ebbing

it’s so sorry… i’m clapping and laughing in first place

see you LATEr

I KNOW… Melissa Archer can beam it up… first Horton to spiral OUT…

I’m done vigil ‘ing out… standing prose… taking guard

this mother/son match creeped me out… no fault of Maggie

let’s see some personality… as Maggie is thrown … MA’ new character is the spitting image of Mother Horton

I saw MA’ character on nuOLTL… she has spark

Suzanne Rogers’ : @Dav…. I wouldn’t even dare treasure her less… Mother Horton… needs to steer clear of Daniel …. it’s all fans know… the Daniel show… w/Jennifer…. isn’t that tired… left over… and culled, over… and…. over

heck…. if GH and Y&R want to swap, share, re-hire

LET DAYS & OLTL do the same…. in kind

Kassie DePaiva is so comfortable in Salem…. her natural ease, conjecture, amiable tease… still undefined… but stealing the show from “grans jewel” Jenn

an easy feat… as she’s side by side with the rest of the cast

welcome Melissa Archer….

I daresay… she…along with… already… surefire… Kassie DePaiva… will stir, meld, generate…. in for the ride

you can’t say the same has happened with the three amigos…. Franco, Silas, and Kiki. lame, tame, the same

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

lol…davlestiv1…i love Suzanne Rogers/Maggie…im just tired of her treating Danial like her only child!!!

Could she be a Sami re-cast? MA definitely could play the crazy and impulsive that is Sami Brady!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I doubt theyd recast Sami unless they are also recasting EJ too…too soon anyway…A.S. said some time ago about making guest appearances so im certain she is someone else like Sarah Horton…too bad Days couldnt get Micheal E. away from GH and have him return to Days as Tanner Scofield or someone else and pair him with M.A.s character! That would have been great!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

i said Melissa Archer when Days announce it was casting a character in her mid to late 30s…this is good news!!!

CeeCee
CeeCee

We sort of think alike, jimh. I had said that it would have been interesting and great fun for GH to have cast Melissa Archer as Nina. I really enjoyed how ME and she interacted as a couple on OLTL.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Gee, I don’t know about that, Laura…..crazy and impulsive sounds more like Bree Williamson/Jessica, who played MA’s twin on OLTL, to me. Now, she was really out there!

CeeCee
CeeCee

But, Laura…if MA as Sami can make Abbi’s life a living nightmare, I will welcome Melissa taking the reins from Ali. I have this unholy desire to see Abbi fall and never get up, or at least take forever to get up…I like Kate, I admire the actress. She has come a long way and is filling her shoes with perfect flair. But, Abbi needs to face the music and the consequence of her actions a bit longer.So, relax everyone. It’s a soap.

Can Slezak or Strasser be far behind…what a hoot that would be!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Slezak as Laura Horton=Jens mom…Strasser as Linda Anderson or Lee Dumonde…Jerry Ver dorn as Bill Horton…and Ron Raines as Alex Marshall(unless Quinn Reddeker is willing to return) would all be awesome!!!

John Eric
John Eric

I love it! Seeing Erika Slezak as the sometimes mentally unbalanced Laura with Jerry Ver dorn as Bill Horton would be great! Though I liked John Martin (ex-Jon Russell on OLTL, Hank Cummings on Sunset Beach, Frederick Hodges on Y&R and most recently Ron Mitchell on Mistresses) in the role of Bill when he returned for Alice Horton’s funeral, too, AND he played opposite Robin Strasser on OLTL…maybe Strasser could be Dr. Kate Winograd, also played on Days by Elaine Princi–in addition to her run as Linda Anderson–(Princi) who also played Dorian on OLTL. I think having 2 Kates on the show might be confusing, but I think Bill had an affair with Kate Winograd, too, which contributed to Laura’s mental collapse…Though having Strasser resurface as the long missing Lee Dumonde (RIP Brenda Benet) would be awesome, too-especially if it gave Doug & Julie a real storyline again after all these years, with Lee still out to get Doug and break up his marriage to Julie! Not to mention Lee & Stefano DiMera sharing scenes!!!

Isn’t Dr. Kate Winograd really Kate Roberts? I thought that is how they explained Lucas.

Very happy for Melissa but have to say so disappointed in GH. Melissa Archer and Michael Easton should have been reunited. Michael Easton looks lost on GH. The chemistry between these two is amazing and I truly hope I get to see it again some day!

Sam

So do I. Miss them soooo much.

Jimmy

To be honest, Michelle Stafford looks a bit too old to play Nina. I know, I know, they hired her because she’s fantastic and can play crazy easier than most people can breathe, but she looks too old to be Nathan’s sister and Silas’ wife, who wants to have a baby, and is competing with Sam, who 10 years younger than her… MS is 48, KM is 38… I think Melissa Archer or maybe even Gina Tognoni would have been a better choice for the role, and it would free MS to come back to Y&R.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Good point, Jimmy. But, we must keep in mind that Nina’s child would be in her early twenties had she lived. ( I think it’s Kiki, but that’s beside the point) . So, I think Michelle’s age still works. Besides, she and Nathan are cousins, not siblings, …remember, the great reveal? Lol

Michael

Michael Easton and Michelle Stafford are only one year apart in age.

OMG this is great casting news!!! I hope she’s not a recast for Sami Brady, but rather Sarah Horton, or maybe even Stefano’s presumed-dead daughter, Megan DiMera!!!!!!! She is a fantastic actress!!! Pair her with Brady or Rafe!!!!

Thanks Patrick!!! I have been watching since the mid-90s and love all things DiMera…..now that Lexie is gone, EJ is on his way out and Kristen’s return is temporary, the Dimera’s need to be beefed up!! this would be a good start!! Uggh and can they PLEASE bring back Peter Blake-DiMera???? Jason Brooks was SO hot, and I know him and Missy had an affair and one stipulation of her coming back in the early 2000s, was that they wouldn’t bring him back, but cmon!!!! Time has passed and the show is for the fans!! Or they could recast him!!!!!

Hell yes knock ’em dead Melissa! GH ‘s loss is Days gain. Was sooo hoping to see her on GH, instead they have MS as Nina. Well we all see how that is going:( would have loved to seen Melissa reunited with Michael Easton

Steph

Many viewers were hoping for an Archer and Easton reunion. They sizzle and let’s face it Easton has fizzled on GH since he became Silas Clay. His character is not likeable at all. Not wanting to take away from Melissa’s success just wish GH had not screwed up our OLTL characters’ stories. That was wrong and the unresolved storylines disappointing for fans who supported these characters for years. Wishing her the best

Sam
Sam

Yes, wishing Melissa the best. Love her upbeat nature and attitude. Still hoping to see her again with Easton at some point. Yes, I do miss them……

Now if only we can pry away Michael Easton and Roger Howarth away from their current lame roles on GH! Bring the boys to Salem and watch the sparks fly!

My guess she may play Eve’s cousin who actually rents the apartment Eve and Paige live. We know nothing about this cousin (unless I’ve missed something) so it’ll be a fresh character. Whoever she plays, I’ll be fine. 🙂

you know…. that firey red head… that was just let go…. “Sheryl” : whom I want back… but would grandstand, Melissa Archer… as a cousin to Eve and Theresa ? and MA character takes up with Lucas ?

MBmomof3
MBmomof3

I miss Sheryl too. Lucas is one of my favorite characters, so pairing MA’s character with Lucas would work for me.

Having MA’s character related to Eve & Theresa would be great too. All 3 have the same type of energy and acting skill to work well with each other. I often wondered why we never saw “Cousin Joan”. lol.

Lynn

Maybe a new Melanie? The last one was a red head too! So nice to see another OLTL alum on another of my favorite soaps! Can’t wait!

CeeCee
CeeCee

I don’t know…hmmm…that would mean that Daniel would have had a daughter at 10-13 years of age. Melanie is in her early to mid twenties.

Ghlover

Is she Meredith?? They were casting a Meredith

CeeCee
CeeCee

It seems to go in that direction, Ghlover….play the part of Meredith, that is. But, as I have previously posted, Ms Archer does not fit the fragile type, which is what tptb want this character to be. I’m never right in these predictions anyway. So, we shall see. I am just happy to see her on the screen again regardless of the role she plays.

Patrick

I too am just happy to see her AGAIN…. on our screen, radar, a part of…. with

I hear ya Patrick. I bet MA will play “Meredith”. I wonder if Meredith is Aiden’s ex-wife? I know it’s just speculation, but can’t help but wonder. Regardless, I enjoy and love how the writing of DOOL flows and how character driven it is. MA is going to have fun!!

I also agree w/the other comments about GH’s loss and wanted to see Easton and Archer reunited. I’m not enjoying Silas on GH, the way he’s written, like he’s a piece of furniture. It’s a toss up for me, glad that MA is going to be on a soap that I enjoy more, but miss the MA & ME chemistry too. Oh well…can’t have it all….1 day….

You might be right…M.A., as Aidens wife…was hoping for her to be Sarah Horton…just will be great to see her in any role on the show…

I congratulate MA in securing work in the dwindling daytime arena. I am not a fan of hers in the sense I didn’t like Natalie on OLTL. I can see her as Suzanne Roger’s daughter, so if she is to play Maggie’s daughter Sarah I would be curious to see. I loved reading the casting ideas of OLTL actors as long standing DOOL characters. ITA with the armchair casting.

Jimmy
Jimmy

I think Sarah Horton is the most logical character for her to play, I could really see her and Suzanne Rogers playing mother and daughter. Melissa is a great actress and it would have been great if GH snapped her up when they rehired the other ex-OLTL stars.

As for the Sami recast comments, I don’t think that’s the road they’re going down. Alison Sweeney is just wrapping up her run on the show, and she said TPTB are leaving the door open for her to return. Plus, if they were bringing back Sami they would probably bring back E.J., so I doubt she will play Sami.

MBmomof3

Best.News.Ever! Melissa Archer is my favorite daytime star and Days is currently my favorite soap. Doing the happy dance! YES! 🙂

I think she would make a really good Sarah Horton. I used to be a Maggie fan, but not in quite awhile. She would also make a good Melanie. In either case I’m not sure about the age of the characters v. the actress. Either way, I’m one happy soap fan!

Congratulations Melissa and welcome to Days of our Lives!

I did not know of her previous work. I Googled her and have come to the conclusion that with her stunning ampleness…Michael Muhney does not have a prayer to work at DAYS…if the allegations were true!!

MBmomof3
MBmomof3

I think Melissa Archer could handle Michael Muhney & his inappropriate behavior. But I hope he doesn’t darken the doorstep of another daytime soap anytime too soon.

MBmomof3
MBmomof3

I feel I should clarify that statement…Melissa Archer is a mature woman and a seasoned vet. Not just of daytime, but has done movies and commercial work as well. I’m sure she is used to handling that type of boorish behavior and has likely experienced it herself along the way. She’d probably handle it (and him) and still be able to work within that environment if necessary. Not that anyone should EVER have to put up with sexual harassment and/or assault.

You are right that publicly they were really only allegations. I personally believe them to be true, but that’s JMO. That’s why I hope he isn’t back on daytime for a while. Never say never.

Finally, I enjoyed Michael Muhney’s work as an actor on Y&R, and going back as an original fan of the show Veronica Mars. He was very good in that role too. Ultimately his bad behavior cost him that job as well. I DO wish him the best of luck getting himself together. He has issues. He is very talented and apparently has quite a contingent of fans, so I hope he finds success as an actor, but most importantly as a man.

Have not watched DAYS long enough to know past characters and relationships as many of you, but I watched me a goodly amount of OLTL and I applaud this casting news. I like Melissa Archer and yes, Kassie de Paiva surely is an easy fit in Salem.

DAYS is the best for the legacy four. It gives me the family and humanity and community feel the others seem to lack. GH has too much “out-there” plotting for my taste. Y&R is in transition and is missing the class it had. B&B is just so badly written and repetitive.

Jim Nelson
Jim Nelson

Yes, I think it is a smart move to incorporate the remnants of the cast of
One Life to Live and All My Children over to DAYS. I have been a Days fan for only 8 or 9 months, and it’s primarily because I need my ‘soap’ fix. So, I’ve been enjoying the cast and enjoy seeing familiar faces from stupid ABC-TV who let two iconic soaps go.

While I am happy for her, I must ask, why the hype about this actress? She does nothing for me, and always found Natalie one of the characters I hated most on OLTL, even when I watched it off-on from 2010-11.

Karen Taylor
Karen Taylor

I agree with a lot of you on here, I would love to see some of the OLTL stars come to Days and shake it up and add to it. I can’t wait to see Melissa she was one of my favorites. I think she will be Aiden’s not so deceased wife. He will not discuss her at all.

Thomas

I love this news. Melissa Archer is not only gorgeous and sexy, but she has a great energy and spark as an actress. She also tends to have chemistry with everyone she works with: young, old, men, women. I am definitely excited. I can’t wait to hear what kind of character she’ll be playing.

I love my Jolie so much & I miss them so much Michael Easton & Melissa Archer are absolutely Phenomenal & Golden together. They need to be reunited either on DAYS or GH. PLEASE!!!!!! I heard ME resigned his contract but that could be a short-term contract so he can still go to days. I also heard it was him wanting to exit & go to days. I love ME but the Silas character is a dud & boring & just not cutting it it’s not his fault it’s just not working. He looks lost & unhappy & I also read that the Silas & Ava pairing is a last desperate attempt to figure out what to do with Michael (Easton), who I can’t imagine will last til summer. Also I heard GH is cutting its’ cast by order of ABC brass.. And Silas is likely exiting because Kiki is Franco & Nina’s daughter.

Peter expressed via his tweet:  “I was so fortunate to have worked with some amazing actors that shaped the actor and person I am .Looking in Peggy’s eyes, all I could see was a Mom who loved me, and wanted the best for me. She was always so committed to the story.Those sparkling eyes RIP”

Not just an inspiration but a FIRECRACKER! Lucky me, lucky us… thank you, Peggy.”

Ryan Quan: RIP Peggy McCay. She was as warm, friendly, and spunky in person as she was on screen. One of my favorite recent Caroline scenes was her speech at Will and Sonny’s wedding… Peggy’s performance was amazing. She will be missed!

Mary Beth Evans: (Kayla): Oh how I loved this woman! Her strength & professionalism was like no other! She set such an amazing standard for all of us….as actors & people. She will always be the  & soul of the Brady family & she lives on in Salem and in our hearts.
