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?

CeeCee
CeeCee

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 were played too cutesy cutesy… there was no drama between either of them…. I’m glad Melanie is gone…

Eric : (ok : he was raped, as a priest, by Kristen) so he has SERIOUS issues with trust, lies, and relating to any one ??? He didn’t even act anything out with Serena… till the end, when she was fired… and he acts all hurt… and repeated over and over.. how she must come clean…. and that his dad is the police commissioner

Daniel : the aura around him stinks…. give me a break… he is so played out…. does DAYS LEADING MAN have to be this boring ? this dull? has no relatable charisma with any one in the cast…. OK… i’ll give Parker that laud. DAniel who is in on every story… comes to the rescue… his magic hands… heals every one. I don’t even think he’s good in bed. I’d let go/fire Shawn Christian before Daniel Cosgrove’ Aiden.

I no longer like… or care that much at all … who Arianne Zucker ends up with…

I love AZ’ Nicole… as a character… just move ON !

it’s my opinion.. that Eric and Brady have not really lent any thing… to the canvas since Eileen Davidson has left… they certainly tried Kristen with Daniel…. as soon as she left… he spiraled

I hope Theresa digs in her claws mindset and takes Brady to the cleaners… DAYS production let’s do this up right…. give Theresa some power, finesse, and femme fatale

these three amigos (Brady, Eric, Daniel)… need to be taken down a few pegs

@sharon

don’t mind me… I’ve passionately steered my viewing habit derail

LOL

thank the soap god… that a new headwriting team plus producers have arrived

CeeCee

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 her do something criminally stupid and hurt her son….bad omen.

Has Munchausen by proxy syndrome (MBPS) ever been featured on a soap opera?

CeeCee

@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 needs a new love in his life give him a new woman

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!

Penny

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!

Darnell is in talks with Sudsville.com to be part of a new soap. Can’t wait!!

Penny, love your suggestions. Hope the producers are listening.

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
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 should play David? I know you liked RG, but would you want Gregg Marx or someone new?

CeeCee
CeeCee

I love Debbi Morgan (Angie). And, she’s the right age for Abe, too.

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

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

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

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!!!

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

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

CeeCee
CeeCee

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.

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

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.

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

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).

CeeCee

@4ever. I appreciate that, 4ever…I like opened cans of worms…LOL. One never knows what one may find….thank you, for the back history.

I would like to know what character she’ll be playing and what the story is.

CeeCee

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.

Mo

Where does it say she’s playing a nanny?

CeeCee

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.

Correction…misheard.

hey CeeCee..
I see DOOL getting many new characters..
Are they near to getting a new cast?

hadda ask– I’ve never seen so many ‘new’ entering a soap..

CeeCee

I know, Su. Also, I thought Xander was leaving?
The only one I bemoan is Sonny. I wish he would stay. But, Will needs to be castrated…LOL

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Youv’e been overdosing on GH…that sounds like she would be a spy for Ava who gets hired by Sonny as a nanny for his baby!…joking…lol…i was hoping she’d be Maxines daughter!!!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hi, jim….that’s funny…I think I am overdosing on GH….lol

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.

CeeCee

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
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
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?

Mary SF

Similar looking to Sal but the nanny is being played by Nadia Sloane

@Mary.
Thanks, again, Mary.

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!!

Mo

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

Laurie

I would love to see her as a part of Abe’s family. Maybe a niece, or a daughter we never knew about. We need bigger circles, the pool is too shallow.

Mo

I wanted them to continue with a pairing of Maxine and Abe.

Well I hope she’s a new love interest for Abe. I really wish Lexie would come back but the actress wanted to retire from acting.

Not sure I haven’t watch DOL in a few years so I Will have to do some binge watching to see how they bring her in . I’m truly excited and looking forward to it she was awesome in and all my children . Go Sal

I was never a fan of her during her time on Top Model, but she made me a fan by her portrayal of Cassandra on All My Children. I look forward to seeing her in Salem causing some truly amazing drama!

I watched AMC online..
I remember Cassandra Foster ..
She was Jesse and Angie’s daughter..
She was a sex slave and she was forced to exotic dance etc..
She was very good!!!!

She is gorgeous!! I hope maybe she’ll be a daughter of Abe or Stefano and be paired with Rafe!!!!!!

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.

madluv4u
madluv4u

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 characters!

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

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 Christopher Lawford Dead At 63

Sad news to report this Wednesday.  Christopher Lawford, best known to soap fans as Charlie Brent on All My Children from 1992-95, as well in the role of Senator Jordan on General Hospital in 2004, passed away at age 63.

Lawford who is the son of the actor Peter Lawford, and Patricia Kennedy, and whose uncles were Ted, Robert and President John F. Kennedy apparently died at a Yoga Studio on Tuesday night during a health emergency according to a report from TMZ.

As of now, it is being reported that Christopher’s death appears to be from “natural causes.” The coroner is performing an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.

Christopher had battled addiction in his life back in the 70’s and 80’s.  The actor was also a New York Times best selling author with his book, ‘Symptoms of Withdrawal.’

Being the nephew of John F. Kennedy, Lawford also spent time in the political arena with staff positions with The Democratic National Committee, and campaigns whether it be at the national, state, or local level

Lawford’s cousin Kerry Kennedy announced his death on social media.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica Kane), Lawford’s co-star on All My Children, shared her thoughts on Instagram at his passing: “Such very sad news that wonderful Chris Lawford has passed away. Chris was so great to work with—always prepared and always with a smile and an ease about him. He was warm and charming whether on set at AMC—or working hard for his charity. My deepest sympathy to his family. RIP, Chris”

Morgan Fairchild And Soap Notables Filming New LGBTQ Series ‘Mélange’

Over the next several days in New York, some very familiar faces to daytime soap fans are busy filming episodes of a new series entitled Melange, which stars Morgan Fairchild (most recently ex-Angelica, DAYS).

The series is set against the backdrop of a historic New York City gay bar named “Melange”, and the fight for ownership over it, when it’s proprietor has suddenly and mysteriously died.  Melange will explore themes of sexuality, immigration, addiction, power, and inclusion.

One Life to Live & All My Children Reunion Event Photo Gallery

Over the weekend, actors who appeared on two beloved legacy soap operas: All My Children and One Life to Live took part in a reunion event held over GH Fan Club Weekend.  And while the fans in attendance were excited to see some of their favorites, it was the former cast members themselves getting to see their former co-stars for the first time in years which made the event all the more touching.

Then, in big surprise to the attendees, none other than former One Life to Live star, Nathan Fillion showed up to give hugs to his former castmates including: Erin Torpey (Ex-Jessica), and James (Ex-Max) and Kassie DePaiva (Ex-Blair), among others.  Fillion, who has gone on to primetime success with his show Castle, and his upcoming new series on ABC, The Rookie, has never forgotten his beginnings in show business as Joe Buchanan!  Who can forget his on-screen affair with Robin Strasser’s Dorian, which sent Viki (Erika Slezak) into orbit!

Kassie DePaiva (now Eve on DAYS) told Michael Fairman TV on Fillion’s appearance that she had reached out to him to let him know about the event: “I knew the fans would love it.  He is very proud of his roots.”

When asked about seeing the original Blair, Mia Korf, at the same event whom she had never met, Kassie said, “I went, ‘There’s the real Blair,” but it was really nice meeting her.  You know with One Life to Live actors, even if you didn’t work with somebody there is such a camaraderie, which makes this show so special.”

All My Children fans were thrilled to see appearances by Rebecca Budig (Ex-Greenlee), Vincent Irizarry (Ex-David), Jordi Vilasuso, who will soon be seen in his new role on Y&R, and played Dr, Griffin Castillo in Pine Valley, and many more.

Check out our photo gallery of some of the past cast from both AMC and OLTL who showed up to say “hello again” to each other and the fans below.  Then, let us know if it makes you miss Pine Valley and Llanview all the more in the comment section, and which photo you liked the most!
