In an interesting interview with TV Line’s, Matt Webb Mitovich, three-time Daytime Emmy winner, Sarah Brown talks about her decision for coming on to Days of our Lives in the new role of Madison James in a very difficult soap climate.  The acting dynamo also fills the Salem viewers in on who she will be romantically linked with and who she may have known in the past, and teases Madison has deep skeletons in her closet!  Here are a few excerpts below:

Sarah on who Madison will be pointed towards romantically and when will viewers notice that: “You’re going to get it real fast, like within my first 24 hours on the show. [Laughs] One thing I think is really important is chemistry, and if actors have chemistry audiences will pick up on that. Audiences will root for characters that don’t even exist as a couple because the actors’ chemistry is so strong. So, thankfully, Eric (Martsolf) and I have a fabulous chemistry.”

Sarah on how Greg Meng, DAYS  co-executive producer has a vested interest in making DAYS work in this challenging time in the genre :  “Greg has all the hopes for daytime that I have, that it can be completely turned around. I feel I have a good sense of what it’s lacking, and Greg and I agree on what that is. It’s got to be out with the old way of doing things, where you take for granted that the audience isn’t paying attention. Daytime is infamous for being the type of show you can watch once a week, so the idea that you need to say every bit of information from the last three days in every scene is just outdated. People are a lot smarter now, so the average person will call bulls–t on that. Saying the name of the character in every line, people hiding behind bushes and pretending the other characters can’t see them…. That’s got to change. You need to find new, inventive ways.”

So soapers,  are you looking forward to seeing Sarah as very strong businesswoman, Madison James? Let us know!

I can’t believe Madison is married. Ugh, my mom and I are so frustrated with Madison’s character because she doesn’t like Madison James. I’m an avid DOOL watcher and I’ve been watching since I was 6 years old and I think that Sarah Brown who plays Madison is beautiful. My sister and I read a spoiler on the Days of Our Lives website that Ian kidnaps Madison to keep her from telling anybody that she’s married.

Glad Days is bringing on a business woman. Images of women have to be brought into the 21st century on soaps!

I certainly agree with that. I just wish she didn’t look so much like Tamara Braun. Ew.

Christie, she doesn’t look like Tamara Braun, she’s more beautiful than her. Tamara Braun is her sister and she’s too skinny.

The character Madison James is annoying. The scenes Thursday, Oct. 27, with Brady were awkward and way too long. It was almost soft porn that just kept going and going…and seemed completely inappropriate in a business office. Much more of her rubbing oil on Brady may cause me to stop watching.

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
