Looks who’s back?  According to Soap Opera Digest, fan favorite Patrika Darbo is back taping scenes at Days of our Lives as Nancy Wesley, the mother of Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin)! Darbo was last seen in Salem in 2005, and will be back to support daughter, Chloe Look for the actress to first air in 2013.

In a statement Darbo related, “I am thrilled to be reprising the role of Nancy Wesley. I can’t wait to see what the writers and producers of DAYS have Nancy up to and I am glad to be back and finally taking care of Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin), the way a Mother should.  DAYS has always been big on family and Nancy is Chloe’s mom and Parker’s Grandma or Granny…but I personally like GLAM MAW! Let those that caused Nancy’s sweet daughter problems be on guard. Let the Drama begin!!”

So what do you think, glad to see Patrika as Nancy on-screen again?  What would you like to see her as bad Nancy, or good Nancy? Let us know!

I’d rather see Thaao Penghlis come back or Matt Ashford than these two boring actors. Days always brings back people I don’t need to see back.

Glad to hear it. It will be nice to see Chloe and Nancy. I wonder if Parker and Philip will be coming as well? I wouldn’t mind finding out that they’d gotten together off screen.
