Days of our Lives had been very busy stacking their show for a big fall and winter push in the ratings, that should make the upcoming 5oth anniversary season of the long running NBC daytime drama series one for the records book.

While the series has brought back Jason Cook as Shawn-Douglas Brady and Martha Madison as Belle, they have also SORAS’d their child, Claire!  After the talent search it was actress/singer Olivia Rose Keegan who has nabbed the coveted part!  When viewers last saw the character of Claire in 2008, she was very little girl who left Salem with her parents.

Fans of DAYS have already noticed the striking resemblance to the original Belle, General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms (Maxie) and Madison. So much so, that Madison took to Twitter calling it out in a very cute way, and welcoming her new TV daughter relating: “If @teenystweeting and I had a baby, this … #myTVkid

As for Keegan, she has appeared on numerous television series including: Modern Family and Sam & Cat.  Olivia is also quite the musical performer – in fact via her Instagram account – she has been touting her cover of Adele’s “Crazy For You”.  You can watch it after the jump!  So, what do you think of the casting of Olivia as Claire Brady? Share your thoughts in the comment section!

I am excited about this casting. I think this age demographic is missing from the show. Although I am thrilled to see so many of the older actors coming back, I would love to see some of the money spent on some new sets. I am so tired of EVERYTHING happening in the Salem Town Square and the park. It seems no one has a home. Paul is still living in a hotel. What happened to the set where Abe and Lexie lived, which was previously Bo and Hope’s home. I would love to see the Salem Dock come back.… Read more »

I too am tired of the sets we see. Bring back the DiMera living room and foyer and door and stairway. Did we sacrifice this to have the college set? If so, not a good trade. Maybe in the fall…

I agree…bring back the Dimera mansion…the show is getting a reboot in the character department, and it needs a reboot in the set department as well…sometimes that grass carpet that passes for the lawn on ‘The Brady Bunch’ seems more realistic than that park on Days…lol

I recall Abe and Lexie’s home was the previous home of Roman and Marlena.

Bo and Hope’s house and John and Marlena’s penthouse are coming back!!

have to share, 3 quotes, from “Days of OUR Lives” executive producer, Ken Corday… from the SOD 7/13/15, issue (soap opera digest) “… he called the cast, together” KD: “we have to raise the bar. Failure is not an option here. The show will be 50 in November. We must get picked up for another two years, and in order to do so, we have to not reinvent ourselves but go back to basics to what has made the show great in the past…” “…there has been positive fan reaction…” KD: “In the course of basically four weeks, you will… Read more »

She is definitely doe-eyed, and I think that will fit the character of Claire very well. I’m excited for the new DAYS ahead of us!

She doesn’t look anything like Martha Madison … but she looks everything like Kirsten Storms.

Storms would have had to have given birth to her at 14 or 15, though.

JJ is Claire’s grandmother’s cousin’s son. Unless they relocate Salem to the Ozarks, that may be keeping it a little too “in the family.” 😉

Her voice sounds a lot like Kirsten Storms when she was a teen on the show. I also think she resembles Kirsten Storms.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.

James Scott Comments: “I Will Never. Never. Never. Never. Never, Go Back to Hollywood Let Alone DOOL”

Those hoping that finally James Scott would return to his signature daytime soap role of EJ DiMera on Days of our Lives, now that Alison Sweeney is on her way back to the show this fall for a longer run as Sami, can count those hopes now dashed and for good.

In a post on his Instagram account for his meditation and contemplations Sunday morning Zoom series and website, Scott posed with Deepak Chopra.  When a fans posted a comment in the IG account how they miss him on DAYS and to come back with Sami, James replied, “Hi – thanks for joining me here. Please know that I will never. Never. Never. Never. Never. Go back to Hollywood let alone DOOL. There is notbing interesting there for me. J”

Fan favorite James Scott, who has been MIA from the acting profession for awhile now is running The Whisper Within – and as detailed by the website, Scott explains how he left acting to be more involved with meditation and helping others find inner-peace – “In 2014, after a successful career in the entertainment industry, I found myself with everything and nothing.  I had money, celebrity, and status and the grief to match it. I had worked tirelessly for the better part of two decades to attain wealth and validation, yet no external thing could touch the emptiness I felt and the worthlessness I experienced.  I knew that something unknown wished to be known—something I could feel only through its apparent absence. In my despair and depression, I faced a simple choice: to change my lived experience or to end it. One felt impossible; the other easy I had already spent so much time reading self-help books, attending workshops and retreats, drinking concoctions with shamans, exploring tantra and abstaining from sex all together, dancing and singing, and many more practices, which had done little or nothing to abate the loneliness.

 

Desperate and in despair, still seeking, still suffering, I found my way to an Indian meditation center. I went for a week and stayed for a year. It was there in my own reflection that I found the teacher I had been seeking silently waiting to be known. At first, there was rage and anger, but eventually the intensity of the fire burned low and sadness took its place. I cried and cried until I cried myself empty and something new arose: beneath it all, I discovered a newfound peace. Like a fragrance arising from deep within, I heard the sound of the silence that can never be spoken: the eternal wisdom of the whisper within.  To live from this place is my practice and my path. To inspire others to do the same is my purpose.”

So, what do you think about James’ comments and path that he has now gone down for his life?  Do you think its time for DAYS to finally re-cast EJ? Comment below.
