Three -time Daytime Emmy winner Sarah Brown (GH, DAYS, B&B) is the big name just revealed by Crystal Chappell who will be playing one of the leading roles of Katherine in the upcoming political soap series with a spin, Beacon Hill!

Brown’s character in Beacon Hill is described as:  “State Representative Katherine Wesley is a rising star in the Democratic Party, despite her family’s long history as staunch Republicans. Senator Preston’s stroke may give her a chance at a larger prize, but Sara’s return could make her doubt her next step.”

Sarah Brown joins already announced Louise Sorel (Ex-Vivian DAYS) as Emily Tanner and Chappell as Claire Preston! For more on Beacon Hill, go to the show website here! 

Now let us know what you think of the casting of Sarah Brown? Excited to see her in the role? Who else do you think Chappell and company are planning to play the other key roles in this upcoming series? Share your thoughts!

Nice! I will definitely be watching if Sarah Brown is in it. She’s one of the best actresses ever!

There already was a show called Beacon Hill in the 1970s with some former soap stars…one was Maeve Mcguire…ex Nicole of E.O.N. but it was a short lived ripoff of Britains Upstairs Downstairs.

I agree with you aria. sarah brown was the best carly period. she is the original carly. laura wright is ok. but they should fire her. Bring back sarah brown again in the role of carly. i would be so happy. she is a wonderful actress.

What I loved about Sarah Brown (and Tamara Braun to a degree) was how she brought that redneck, trailer trash aspect of Carly to fruition while still maintaining the fact that she was a millionairess (hello, married to a Quartermaine and a Corinthos).

Laura Wright hasn’t done that at all.

So very happy for Sarah Joy Brown!!! She is so talented and deserves to be busy acting in any medium she can get!!! I would love to see her on Y&R!!! If she could be back on GH as a different character that would also be fabulous!!! I would watch anything she is on and hope she gets on one of the other soaps soon! Can’t agree with the above about having her back as Carly. She was great as Carly at that time… but where Carly has grown and gone… I want no one other than Laura Wright playing… Read more »

This web site would load so much faster if there weren’t so many videos playing simultaneously. Soap stars saying, “hi” at the top of the screen and trailers for TV shows I don’t want to watch at the bottom. It’s as bad as SOAPNet’s old web site. Ugh! And it’s such a pity, too, because I for the most part enjoy Michael Fairman’s news.

If it‘s a Chappell show it will be top-heavy with lesbians. Won‘t be watching. But Sarah is a good actress. Too bad she has to join the ranks of other unemployed actresses who pick up these types of roles.

Carly is well written for.

all actors’ who played her… WON.

talented…won after..

Top heavy with Lesbians… cause of Crystal Chappelles big tits and big lips? or cause she’s sensual?

cause this is good press?

Happy Lesbian Act…. i’ll take prop 8 and doma for what it is. lesbian-gay become equal. i’ll Will it and bcome in your face. Prop 8 helped repeal it’s law…

That was cute, but yes, it can be done if you’re a straight woman UNLESS they are personal friends of yours that you will watch anything they do! 😉

Well, guess what? I am a lesbian, but I don’t feel the need to fast forward straight love scenes. I guess I am a lot more open minded than you are.

‘Days of our Lives’ to Honor James Reynolds’ 40th Anniversary as Abe Carver with Special Episode

As DAYS viewers witnessed on Friday’s episode, Abe has been shot in the park, after Carmine pulls out a gun, and Jake (Brandon Barash) tries to apprehend him.  Jake rushes to Abe’s side and calls an ambulance and he is rushed to University Hospital.  Once there, Abe eventually flatlines, while Lani (Sal Stowers), Paulina (Jackee Harry) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are besides themselves with worry.

This sets the stage for Monday’s episode where Abe will go into the light, as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) works to save his light and while he hovers between life and death, DAYS fans are treated to the special 40th anniversary episode of James Reynolds as Salem’s Abe Carver.   The Daytime Emmy-winning actor, (he won Lead Actor in 2018) began his Salem journey when he first aired back on October 29th, 1981.

While Abe revisits the past, he will meet up with his late wife and love of his life, Lexie, only according to Soap Opera Digest, Renee Jones was not available to be a part of the milestone episode. So, in a pivot another actress was brought in.

Reynolds told SOD on the Lexie appearance, “The young actress they brought in to be part of this was just wonderful“n giving the essence of (their) relationship and communicated beautifully, just beautifully, in her face and her eyes, as Renee did quite so often.”  He added, “I was kind of transported, actually.”

In addition, James continues to be the the longest-running black actor in the same role in television history.

Check out the latest NBC promo featuring Abe’s life hanging in the balance below.

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.
