It is rumored that she will be trouble as the daughter of Tony Dimera…ok, im starting that rumor just now myself…lol

hi Jimh..
How many new actors have been added to the DOOL cast during past year???

Im not sure…but they just killed off one of them…Serena!!!

I’m hoping she comes to Salem and is a police officer. She befriends Abe. She has a hidden agenda. She thinks she’s Abe’s daughter because her mother (Valerie Grant) dated Abe. In the end she realizes Abe and Valerie ended their dating way before she was conceived, so Valerie confesses that David Banning (Julie’s son) is the new beauty’s father!

I like your idea of who Lani is. The idea of Julie having a granddaughter is a hoot! I would enjoy that very much because Julie is a card! Kudos to Susan Seaforth Hayes!

Hey, sounds like something i wouldve written…lol…and i hope you are right…another Horton in Salem???

I enjoyed her work on AMC. Welcome aboard Sal.

Could she be Maxine’s daughter?

ditto!

I forgot all about her.. amidst all the hoopla

not any less… as I thought: she was hot… on AMC

Jimh, I see you often on here, and I hope you are right!!!! The DiMera’s need some replenishing. Where the hell is Peter Blake??? I was thinking she could be Lexi’s half sister, or a lost daughter of Abe’s!!! With all the returning and new talent, I hope DAYS writes for everyone!!! She was a awesome actress on the AMC reboot!!!!

wow! great idea… as in Lexie’ 1/2 sister… especially if her mother is Celeste!

bring that tarot hot tamale sexy vixen HOME

Newbies on DAYS generally tend not to do so well, but hopefully Lani’s storyline is interesting and they keep Sal Stowers around, because she was great on AMC and DAYS needs more diversity in its cast.

My hope is that she is a relative of Abe’s because they really need to give him more story, and beef up his family. Since Lexie died, he hasn’t had much going on. Now with Theo being SORAS’d, and hopefully with the addition of Lani, he will have more story.

Another Stefano offspring? (Lani/Lexi)

Remind me…who was Casandra again?
And why do we care that she’s coming to Days?
With all the former stars coming back, why is this news important?

Just wondering…

Cassandra Foster was the adopted daughter of Angie Hubbard Foster (Debbi Morgan) and Jacob Foster (Darnell Williams playing a Jesse Hubbard lookalike) from the final episode of THE CITY (March 28, 1997), when they found a baby abandoned in a dumpster under a sign that read “Cassandra Deliveries” (from what I recall).

Cassandra débuted as a teen on ALL MY CHILDREN (played by Yaya DaCosta) who was still getting used to Jesse’s return from the dead (Jacob was explained as living in Europe after his marriage to Angie fell apart off-screen after THE CITY ended). Cassandra mixed it up with Colby Chandler, Pete Cortlandt, and Dre Woods during summer 2008, I believe dealing with Richie Novak’s murder (killed by his sister Annie, but I think his abandoned body on the road was run over by the teens in their car, leading them to think they had killed him), before Cassandra left town.

When AMC rebooted on HULU in 2013, Cassandra was brought back (this time played by Sal Stowers) and was central to Angie/Jesse’s storyline when Cassandra was kidnapped by human sex traffickers and tortured. Stowers received rave reviews from critics and fans. While I felt she delivered emotional performances, I felt the hype was a little overblown, as she basically cried for months, but I didn’t quite connect with the character’s pain. Cassandra was eventually rescued, near the end of the season/series, and was starting the road to recovery while slowly reconnecting with Colby and Pete (played by Robert Scott Wilson, now portraying Ben on DAYS).

Boy I have to give you credit for remembering all of that – I watched AMC for years and even watched the ill-fated Re-boot online version and enjoyed Sal Stowers as Cassandra. But even I, a long-time fan of the show, can’t recall all these details – yes many of these actors from AMC and OLTL are showing up on Days of our Lives.

Thanks davidevansmith! I admit I pretty much FF’d most of that girl’s scenes! Didn’t care for the character OR the storyline.
Meh to her coming to DOOL, but maybe with a different character, she’ll do OK.

i know she was awesome on the online version of amc – so i am expecting the same on dool

Gpod or bad, she’s alright alright.

With all these new characters coming and all the old vets returning, it makes you wonder where the money is coming from? Will every scene soon take place in the Horton Square or the lone booth at the Brady Pub so they can save money on set design?

I can easily see Days making the same mistake that GH did. They brought back a ton of vets and added a slew of new characters and then didn’t have enough time to air them.

EXCLUSIVE: Jacob Young, Joan Collins and Nadia Bjorlin to Prague to Film ‘Murder Between Friends’

On Thursday night during the Michael Fairman Channel’s livestream interview centering around Jason Cook’s (ex-Shawn, DAYS and ex-Matt, GH) latest movie Four For Fun which stars Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Jacob Young (ex-JR, AMC, ex-Rick, B&B and ex-Lucky, GH), revealed another upcoming film project with some very familiar faces.

Jacob Young shared an exclusive that he is set to direct, produce and star in a Agatha Christie-like murder mystery feature film aptly tiled Murder Between Friends.

Speaking on the upcoming project, Jacob said, “I’m flying at the end of the March to Prague to direct, produce and star in a film with Joan Collins (ex-Dynasty). Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe, Days of our Lives) is in it, and Toby Alexander Smith from Eastenders (ex-Gray Atkins). Plus, a couple of my Broadway friends and a very well known Czech actress (Hana Vagnerova).”

According to Jacob, the production start date is April 1st. He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.

IMDb has more on the film. It shared that former All My Children star Trent Garrett (ex-Asher Pike) is listed as co-directing the feature. Mark Rozzano is listed as writer of Murder Between Friends.

Maurice Benard Reveals All My Children’s Lee Meriweather and Daughter’s Alzheimer’s Diagnosis

At the beginning of the latest episode of General Hospital star, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos) State of Mind series, he delivered some heartbreaking news with a purpose.

Kyle Oldham, the daughter of former All My Children star, Lee Meriwether (ex-Ruth Martin), who previously made a guest appearance on Benard’s show, returned for a new interview which will be coming soon.

During their conversation, Oldham shared that her beloved mother has Alzheimer’s. Sadly, according to Benard, Kyle also revealed she has been diagnosed with the disease as well.

Maurice expressed, “We talked about her mother and having Alzheimer’s and it was an amazing interview. And then Kyle said, ‘I gotta tell you something. I have Alzheimer’s.’”

Apparently, Kyle has agreed to come on State of Mind, periodically as the effects of Alzheimer’s take a hold of her to help educate others. “We decided that she was gonna come in … she was gonna call me and tell me as she progresses,” Benard shared. “She was going to come in again so the audience could see with their eyes what Alzheimer’s does to someone.”

Benard’s guest for this current episode of State of Mind was Vernee Watson (Stella, GH), who along with Maurice, was part of the Alzheimer’s storyline on the ABC daytime drama series that saw Mike Corbin (Max Gail) eventually pass away.

As for Lee Meriwether, not only is she known for her role on AMC, but also for her roles as Catwoman in Batman: The Movie, and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, and for the television series, Barnaby Jones, the New Andy Griffith Show and The Munsters to name only a few.

In soap operas, Meriwether was cast in The Young Marrieds years prior to her time on All My Children where she replaced Mary Fickett in the matriarchal role in the Martin family. She played the role from 1996-99, 2002-03, and 2007-11.

Meriwether’s daughter, Kyle Oldham, has been an actress and spokesperson herself through the years. She appeared on The Price is Right for over 14 years until she couldn’t anymore after going through multiple surgeries in her adult life.

You can check out the full episode of State of Mind with Maurice an Vernee below.
