More big news out of Salem! Days of our Lives is bringing none other than former All My Children star, Sal Stowers to the series in a new contract role of Lani!

Stowers who played the role of Cassandra Foster on Prospect Park’s online version of AMC, joins the canvas as the long running NBC daytime drama begins to celebrates it’s 50th anniversary this fall.  Look for Sal to make her DAYS debut on-air in September.

All My Children fans know Stower’s work, as she was at the emotional epicenter in one of the most harrowing, dramatic and talked about story arcs in the online reboot of the series – the human sex trafficking storyline.

In story, Cassandra was the adopted daughter of Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan).  The beautiful Stowers was also the season nine winner of the reality competition series America’s Top Model.

So, what do you think about Sal Stowers joining DAYS? Who do you think Lani will  be related to, and have a love story with?  Share your thoughts below!

I’ve always thought Abe should have more nieces and nephews through his sister Karen and brother Jonah. I’ve also thought they should recast the character Marcus Hunter and give him children. But my guess is that this character will be connected to neither… probably a completely new character. Hopefully she won’t be from anywhere like Pine Bluff!! Maybe another unheard of child of Stefano. Actress wise, I think it’s a good choice!

She did really well on AMC. Being as we have no story or character info, my wish would be she would be Brady’s new love interest. I don’t like him with Theresa. Just because they share a child doesn’t mean they need to be romantically involved.

If you have watched Days as long as I have..(since the very first day it came on) you know that people are constantly coming back from the dead…especially if you are a DiMera….could this be Lexi back from the dead?

I think she ‘s too young to be Lexie. Then, again….anything is possible…it’s a soap, right?…LOL.

Brady and Theresa are not romantically involved. He wants so part of her in that aspect.

i’m 10 eps behind… I plan to keep up I’ve posted this prior : i’m so disappointed with DAYS production that the leading men… Daniel, Eric, Brady… are not bringing any thing new… dull… and uninspiring Brady : has a lot of anger…. (could be the reason he has addiction issues) really…outside of Kristen… when he was partying… is when Brady is at his finest… funniest… and catapults his acting chops. for him to be so mad… angered… because he “blames” Theresa … for what? a bubblegum teeny bopper romance? that was not the least bit interesting… Melanie and brady… Read more »

To be honest, Stephanie? Brady is too old for any of these girls. TPTB should give him mature roles; fit for his age….especially now that he is a father. Brady is forever stuck in his twenties…LOL. I was hoping, in my heart of hearts, that Theresa had finally started a new chapter. But, after today’s episode, my hopes were dashed instantaneously. Did you see the look on her face when she spotted the happy couple at the hospital who was hugging and kissing?……that, due to their child’s illness and then recovery, made them re-connect? Oh, please Lord, do not let… Read more »

@4ever.
Hi,
That’s a good question. Hmmmm. This could be a very inspiring storyline which would resonate with many. Could such a storyline be in the works (MBPS)? Interesting.

Abe is 112 years old and noone wants to see him in a love sl with a woman young enough to be his great grand-daughter!

This is great news, I may start watching again. They should also cast the young lady who played Miranda Montgomery (Brooke Newton) she’s a great actress. Debbie Morgan and Darnell Williams would be a wonderful addition to the cast as well. Just think about it Days, Please!

I once said id like to see Debbie Morgan on Days playing the role of Valerie Grant, a character off the show since the 80s, and as a love interest for Abe!!!

4ever DAYS
Guest
4ever DAYS

No way, Jimh! If DAYS brings Valerie back, she better be played by Tina Andrews who did nothing wrong, but be so convincing that some fans went crazy until she was let go. Tina was very popular until David and Valerie became a couple. It would be nice to have her back where she can receive positive feedback instead of the hate mail laced with death threats. Tina recently tweeted that she would be open to a return. She also posted a photo of her and Richard Guthrie. If I receive my wish to have Tina back a Valerie, who… Read more »

I hope she’s playing a woman who was born female. She could play Julie’s granddaughter!

Maybe Julie’s son David got back with Valerie Grant and she is their daughter…i would like that…or she is Maxines daughter…i would like that too!!!

Yes, Jimh, and would you link Sally (Nicole’s coworker) to anyone on the canvas?

CeeCee
Guest

Okay….so, I wasn’t born when David was on in the early 80’s, but I am very familiar with most, if not all, the characters and the storylines because of my grandmother. He had a son with Trish (Patty Weaver…great singing voice)….so, David would be around fifty now, right?
I think that what jimh is saying makes sense. Sal could be playing the role of David’s and Valerie’s daughter.
But, both Gran and I would also love to see David’s and Trish’s son.

4ever DAYS

4ever DAYS

David, Trish and Valerie would be in their sixties.

The most popular David Banning was played by Richard Guthrie (1975-1981).
I believe Trish Clayton was only played by Patty Weaver (1974-1982).
The son of David and Trish was named Scotty who was last played by Rick Hearst (1989-1990).

The original and most popular Valerie Grant was played by Tina Andrews (1975-1977).

Interestingly, Scott(y) and his girlfriend, Faith (Melinda Clarke) were casualties due to DAYS’ 25th anniversary! Melinda is the daughter of John Clarke who played the original Mickey Horton.

CeeCee, To be clear…Scotty and Faith were written out. They simply moved away. By saying casualties, I meant they had to be let go in order for DAYS’ to afford the returnees.

I opened a can of worms, CeeCee. Two of the returnees for DAYS’ 25th anniversary were Peter Reckell (Bo, long-term) and Kristian Alfonso (Hope, short-term).

Is this nanny on the up-n-up? I already smell a rat. She’s either a spy, or a potential plaything for Brady. He’s always in need of one. Whoever she is…she brings trouble.

Perhaps, I mishear, Mo, but I thought I heard Brady tell John, on the phone, that he had ‘a great nanny. We saw her today.

I don’t think the nanny is anything but someone they hired to cart the baby in and out of scenes– but this new girl does sorta have the same look as the nanny on right now, but they are two different people.

Okay. Thanks for the explanation, Mary. I thought I was seeing things…going crazy, you know? LOL

I admired Ms. Stowers on the AMC reboot. She did very well in a difficult plot line. I am pleased another daytime drama has cast her.

NBC has little success in most dayparts. I think a commitment to DAYS and daytime programming may not be a bad idea, some kinf of partnership with burgeoning web soaps perhaps?

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

I too… admired … this gorgeous stunning woman… on the AMC reboot, she really did a good job, as you said with her part on AMC

which just makes me miss Angie and Jesse….

I totally agree , with many posts… that she should be tied to a character… and it’d be great to see Abe more, in the mix

Jimmy

Good news, she’s a great actress, though it would be nice to know who she’ll play. There seems to be a lot of shakeups as of late with DAYS, with Daniel Cosgrove likely out and now Shawn Christian mulling an exit too. However, it seems like they’re clearing the way for fan-favourite returns and even some new characters, which is good news. The next person I’d like to see go is Galen Gering, I don’t think he’s a good actor and I can’t stand Rafe.

CeeCee

Gee, was I the only one who saw her take Tate from Brady, today? Wasn’t that Sal? Then, I heard Brady tell John, he had hired a nanny. Am I starting to hear things? Wow…or am I losing it?

No, it was not Sal. The nanny on TV is white and Sal is black. And IMO don’t look at all alike.

i miss redaric williams ( tyler) from y n r and think he was never given a fair shot once griffith left,but since josh griffith writing for days now it would be amazing if they brought him back to daytime! depending on the importance of this new female character, i could see her and redaric looking hot together!!

No, it would not be amazing. He cannot act. So glad he left Y&R.

She was wonderful on the great albeit short-lived On-line version of ALL MY CHILDREN, a show that the stupid asses at ABC should have never let go in the first place (sorry, I always have to get my digs in against ABC) – but she is a very fine young actress and I hope they give her some good scenes on DOOL.

I’m sorry but this needs to be said…DOOL just doesn’t know how to write for black characters. They always mess it up. Black characters are never at the fore-front of any sl. Abby and what’s his name were a good looking couple together and they could have worked things out but the writers didn’t know how to write for the character. It’s sad really because this is 2015 and the world is filled with bi-racial couples and children. Hopefully the new writers will know how to do just that and write for the characters and not the color of the… Read more »

I did not see her on the model show, but I did catch the AMC reboot. Sal was phenomenal. With the raw, emotional story line she was incredible. I give her much kudos and cannot wait for 9/25 to arrive!
I do hope, as others have stated, that her character is tied to someone or family already in Salem and/or history in Salem.

All My Children Alum Ben Jörgensen Reportedly Dead At 51

According to his former All My Children castmate, Brian Gaskill. there is sad news in the soap world today.  Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin on All My Children and Chris on As the World Turns passed away on Tuesday at the age of 51, apparently via suicide, although unconfirmed as to his cause of death.

Gaskill, who played Bobby Warner while in Pine Valley shared via his Instagram:  “Sad news to report. Ben Jörgensen who played Kevin Sheffield on All My Children has past away at 51 years old.  My understanding is it was suicide.  I have heard he suffered from Bipolar disorder but as I have not spoke to him in years I do not know all the details. I just want to remember the good times we had on the set of All My Children 24 years ago. He was a good guy and had the courage to play a gay teenager on tv back when it was nowhere near as common to have representation as it is today. He was part of an award winning storyline…but mostly we just had some good times back then…my condolences go out to his friends and family. Please everybody hang in there and reach out for help if you need it. ”

Since the time of Brian’s posting, friends, colleagues and fans have been posting tributes and condolences on the actor’s Facebook page.  You can view that here.

 

In this heartbreaking photo below from Steven Bergman, during his time on As the World Turns, Ben is pictured with the late Nathaniel Marston, as well as Jaime Nicole Dudney and Terri Conn.

On All My Children, Ben was part of the important social issue storyline brought into the ABC legacy soap opera by the iconic Agnes Nixon, who was always trying to move the needle forward in daytime, as the character of Kevin was a gay high school student facing bullying, ridicule and discrimination for his sexuality.

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

Photo: JPI

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.
