Stacy Haiduk To DAYS As Which Of Eileen Davidson’s Previous Roles In Salem?

Courtesy/HaidukFacebook

Those who were expecting to see Eileen Davidson immediately jumping back to her old stomping grounds at Days of our Lives, now that she has opted to leave The Young and the Restless, found themselves in a bit of state of confusion today, when multiple reports surfaced, including one by Daytime Confidential that had Stacy Haiduk already taping scenes at the NBC sudser as one or more of Davidson’s previously delicious roles.

Haiduk, who was previously Daytime Emmy-nominated for her performances as crazy Patty Williams on The Young and the Restless, has reportedly been working at DAYS as a recast for potentially … Kristen DiMera … Susan Banks … Sister Mary Moira, … Thomas or Penelope Banks?

DAYS longtime favorite, Brandon Beemer (Shawn) reacted on Twitter to the DC post saying about Haiduk, “And she’s so good!!!!!”

Fans also need to remember, DAYS tapes six months ahead of air.   The show has not confirmed Haiduk’s appearance, nor has Stacy publicly made an announcement confirming that she is taking on the role or roles previously played by Davidson.

So, what do you think of the casting of Haiduk?  Share your thoughts via the comment section. below.

You have give a chance to Stacy Haiduk in that role ! She is really, really good actress, in my opinion much better than Eileen Davidson 🙂

Soap roles are not untouchable at the end of the day. It’s a business, and business-wise, they needed one or more of those characters, and Eileen was unable to return, so they recast. Stacy Haiduk is quite an accomplished actress in her own right, and she will do just fine in any of these roles. No one bitched this much when they recast Susan a few years back.

I bitched when they recast Susan for those couple of episodes….. No one can replace Eileen in those roles.

Since she does crazy as good as she does, I say she would be a good Susan. Just to start. Then work her into the other characters. Maybe she can show us just how mean, mean, mean Kristen can be.

Susan…

She plays a “psycho” really well but the other characters I do not think so.

Eileen Davidson has left Y&R…. so there’s no need for a fake Kristen.

Stacy was hired prior to Eileen’s exit from Y&R. Plus, Eileen’s statement makes it pretty clear she doesn’t want to be tied down by work right now and wants freedom in her life.

I want Eileen!!!!! I’m willing to give Stacy a chance. What choice do I have?

Having watched Y&R, I must confess that I’ve never enjoyed Stacy Haiduk’s work. There’s no subtlety or humanity to it. These qualities are necessary to make all of Eileen Davidson’s characters work. Additionally, Eileen Davidson has a 25 year history with the Days audience, knowledge of her characters that is unparalleled, and chemistry with other Days actors that cannot be replicated or replaced. To put it simply, I feel that Stacy Haiduk does not have the talent needed to pull this off — and even if she did, it will still pale in comparison to anything Eileen Davidson would have… Read more »

What a loss for Y&R. They could have done so much more with “Patty Cake” I know she will do great things on Days or anywhere else. Good luck Stacy, I’ll be waiting for you over at Days to strut your stuff!

As much as I love Stacy, there is no way in Hades she can replace Eileen as Kristin.
No offense to Stacy, but I protest;…. and yes, too much!!
No way, no how…..there will be a rebellion!! LOL.
Seriously? C’mon, you guys, up there on Mount Soaplympus!! This will be the most disappointing happening yet. I do realize Eileen may not want to return to Days? …..so, in my opinion, for what it’s worth, just do not bring the character back, at all…..especially in the form of Susan. NO ONE can affect that character as Eileen can….nor own it !!

Its always been Eileen….so at first i was disappointed. But once Susan went into Marlenas party she quickly made me laugh and i really like Stacys portrayal.

Sorry, Eileen should be the only Kristen DiMera. Days, you should rethink this casting

Lori Loughlin Returns To Acting; Set To Reprise ‘When Calls The Heart’ Role in GAC Family’s ‘When Hope Calls’

Former Fuller House, Edge of Night, and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin, has landed her first acting role since jail time and her part in the College Admissions Scandal; where she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid half a million dollars in bribes to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, accepted into the University of Southern California.

While, Jade is now also in this season’s Dancing with the Stars, now comes word that Loughlin has gotten her first acting gig since all the legal trouble, and while still on probation following her two months in jail.

Look for Lori to reprise her beloved role of Abigail from When Calls the Heart on its season two spin-off on GAC Family, When Hope Calls.

According to Deadline: Loughlin will appear in the two-part Season 2 premiere titled When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas, to air on Saturday, December, 18th.  Lori was last seen on TV as Abigail in Season 6 of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart before she was let go over her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Last week, speculation began that Loughlin may be back working after a report surfaced from Mercury News  that she had been granted permission by a Boston federal judge to travel to Canada for about a week in late September-early October for “a filming production project.”

So, what do you think about Lori’s return to acting following serving jail time? Will you be watching her as Abigail on When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas? Comment below.
