THIS WEEK ON DAYS: Kassie DePaiva Makes Her Debut As Eve Donovan!



Finally!  After months of waiting, daytime favorite from Guiding Light, One Life to Live, and for a time, General Hospital, Kassie DePaiva (Ex-Blair) makes her official on-screen debut as the recast Eve Donovan on Days of our Lives. Eve was last played by Charlotte Ross!

What will happen when Eve comes to town? Well, we know Eve has no love lost for Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and clearly it appears she is the mother of Paige (True O’Brien)!  Will Eve fall to the charms of Dr. Daniel (Shawn Christian)?  Or, set her sights on someone else? And it now appears Eve is a singer! Perfect for DePaiva, right?  Then there is the little ditty that Eve is the older sis of Teresa (Jen Lilley)!  Will there be sisterly love between these two?

Watch this week’s NBC promo for DAYS heralding the arrival of Kassie DePaiva after the jump!  And oh … there is one more thing in the teaser!  Sami (Alison Sweeney) asks Abigail  (Kate Mansi) to be her maid of honor to her wedding to EJ (James Scott)!  Now how is that going to play out?  Better think again, Sami!  Excited to see Kassie on daytime again?  Let us know!

I’m loving all the possibilities!!! This will be a wild ride and then Kristen arrives next month, which will make it more explosive!!!

it’s beyond giddy time

its through the roof electricity flowing with much to do


and it’s ALL on DAYS

there’s not much press on DAYS

but thats it : DAYS ignites for us

great headline 4ever


had to reply here: Paige and J.J. have had make out scenes so if she turned out to be Jacks that means J.J. and Paige would be half siblings which would be gross unless they are doing that Marie and Tommy Horton storyline or if somehow J.J. isnt Jacks…J.J. looks like a young Frankie Brady…i briefly stopped watching when J.J. was born…anyway i like J.J. and Paige as the next generations leading young couple so i hope they arent related…maybe Eve and Danial met years ago and Danial turns out to be Paiges daughter…? But it would be something if Paige was Peter Blakes daughter and another Dimera!!!

There are so many intriguing possibilities! I like JJ and Paige too. Maybe a who’s the father storyline will lead them to the wrong conclution, a very likely thing with Teresa involved! I’m stoked!!!

I meant father but im wrong on that part…lol…

Well, i guess Paige isnt Danials daughter…im still hoping Frankie, or Peter is her father or Eve was once involved with Jordan and Bens father, who i wish was Peter Blake, then Paige could be tied to them, and the Dimeras…

jimh, Do you know if Billie Worlock is receptive to working on a soap again?

It would be a shocker if Jack, Frankie and Peter came back! It would be nice to have the DiMera family reenergized with Peter Blake and Chad. Maybe Lexie has a twin sister.

I originally hoped Eve was Jordan and Bens parents to move that story along…maybe Eve was involved with their father who was abusive and Jordan or Ben killed him…im ok with her being Paiges mom…so Teressa will try to break up J.J. and her niece Paige…Teressa will help big sis Eve break up Jen and Danial…having someone trying to break Jen and Dan over and over again is very BORING…cant the writers come up with something different for this couple…Days is my favorite of the 4 soaps but if it keeps repeating itself with the constant break up with Danifer i might stop watching…willing to wait and see how Eves return plays out but if its another Danifer break up plot im done!!!

The constant storyline of having someone break up Danifer is redundant and a sign new writers might be needed!!!

If Eve is Paige’s mom will Frankie Brady be her father or will Jordan and Bens father turn out to be Paiges father whoever he is: wish its Peter Blake played by Kassies husband James Depaiva?

What if Jack is Paige’s father?

great post

James DePaiva would do wonders and through the roof business….

I’d hope this : just to get the legions of fans aplenty for DOOL

as this show… goes unnoticed… it’s mine / OURS : I can’t praise how well the production does show

I do wish and get over how much Danifer is featured… be that as it may : this past month seems like they took a beating and hit big… LOL YES! even from the cast… and yes, we know it’s characters… but… they need to go backburner…

i’ve relegated those two… Daniel and Jenn… as (even like Michael and Kiki, GH) as the pundits who are easy targets… to end all and be all… every one else looks twice as good and that much better… so it’s all a give and take… sigh!

the casts are what they are on our shows… and if all DOOL is remiss about : is featuring so wearily at times… Danifer… : then I’ll let it be and wait there scenes over

MAN it’d be something a stoke… if her real life husband came on as a DiMera… can’t you just see Eve sauntering in and around the DiMera Manse… as Stefano is taken, besmooched with our EVE…. LOL


giddy times


I don’t watch the show…I did love Kassie on OLTL. Good for her that she’s found daytime work again. But…the older sister of Jen Lilley? Kassie is I believe 53…and Jen is around 29. Sisters? I guess on the dad’s side…

Yes, same father (Shane), different mothers (Gabrielle and Kimberly).

You’ll be doing yourself a favor by tuning in. Eve is an unforgettable character!!!

Did you hear that Eileen signed a contract on YR?

@4ever DAYS…ha! As mentioned I only watch GH…but yes, I would be curious to check out Kassie…but then again I’d like to see Sean Kanan on The Bold and the Beautiful. That’s the “risk” of following an actor…too much TV!!!! 😉

I’ll have to take a sneak peek at each and pry myself away….

I’m sure they’re going to revise birth dates a little to make Eve younger than Cassie DePaiva’s actual age and maybe make Theresa a bit older.

Kassie looks more 40’ish than 53 to me – so she can I guess “get away” with playing just a tad younger than her actual birthdate. If she “went to high school” with Jennifer, than how old is Jennifer supposed to be? They obviously will both be battling for Daniel’s attentions (I mean it’s pretty clear that’s where the storyline is heading) so how old is Daniel supposed to be? It would seem that he would be a bit younger – gets confusing, age wise, on soaps.

What I always find amusing is how they have actors playing parents of grown children…who are in reality pretty close in age. But I guess that’s the power of suspending our disbelief…

I hope I don’t upset you Kassie fans (this is the first time I have ever heard of her….I only watch DOOL)—-BUT, she is WAY TOO OLD TO PLAY EVE! I mean COME ON writers! I know people can play younger than they are…and Kassie looks good for her age…but she does NOT look like she could be Shane’s daughter! Charles Shaughnessy, who plays Shane, is 59 and Kassie is 53! I thought it was a stretcg when Charoltte Ross played her….Charlotte being only 13 years younger than Charles. But Charlotte was young, had a “baby face”, and pulled it off. I feel the writers were just wanting a big star to fill the role and disregarded the believability of the whole thing.

So, sorry OLTL fans…..I hope they recast Eve soon….total miscast, no matter how good she is!

New to Days this month – so excited to see Kassie on TV again!

I am going to tune in just for Kassie. I finally gave up on GH as I am just not one for short attention span theater, and I am barely hanging in there with Y&R. I always thought Kassie would have been great for the part of Rayna on Nashville.

I hope you end up loving DAYS, harry! You’ll figure everything out.

Welcome, Margie! I hope you enjoy Kassie/Eve and the rest of DAYS!

I am glad DAYS is there for this soap fan after the loss of ATWT, AMC, OLTL… And DAYS does not seem the bizarre odd daytime drama it was in the 1990s. Solid stories, interesting actors and characters. Kassie DePaiva only adds to my interest and excitement about the program.

so glad that Kassie Depaiva is back in daytime i miss her in oltl

“…Finally! After months of waiting,”

grab a chair, folks : this is big time stuff : Kassie DePaiva : I do root knowing , I havent’ watched OLTL : your presence is still stirring me up

DAYS has surpassed my expectation

every element is on

shows are relevent : done : equal : giving us : treat after treat : wave after wave : echelon our DAYS

welcome Kass

Hello Eve

the Donovans reign: I hope, beyond HOPE : Shane and Kimberly return many times

it’s Eve and Theresa : two viable entrenched bonding siblings : this is above and beyond expectation



“… Well, we know Eve has no love lost for Jennifer (Melissa Reeves)”

YES ! brought down a peg… if we have to feature so much Danifer… we can at lest relish how consummate every one else around them is

LOL… I can’t wait this out ! quality stuff coming around

“…Will Eve fall to the charms of Dr. Daniel (Shawn Christian)?”

PLEASE, NO ! whatever…. she should set her eyes and glam on Justin Kiriakis… YES…. all the more pressure for Adrienne to unfold her big stuff… this is the trio to end all

“…and clearly it appears she is the mother of Paige”

I have bitten and am smitten with Paige…. I didnt’ think it would come… JJ is present, all their, and shows…. thank our lucky stars … another drive for Theresa, who is jelous of Paige and Bev… so this is all showing up to be fodder entice and all the trappings of dame drama… JJ’s got it

this is unfolding just as i’d like : LOL YES… wow… show is on the way

we haven’t even cleared the path – hurdled the straotsphere Eileen Davidson is


great feature : thank you MF for the Marquee

“…Then there is the little ditty that Eve is the older sis of Teresa (Jen Lilley)! ”

how can it get any better

this pairing… latched on with knowing intelligence for their craft

Uproarious cheer for DOOL

now hop on the bandwagon…. and get James DePaiva as Peter Blake for further entrails to captivate

in the meantime… Wally Kurth could use some business… and our time savored with : the hottest plug of tantalize… herculean efforts steam rolled…. Eve – Justin – Adrienne


I have never watched this show but now the Kassie is coming I am going to give it a try.

Finally! Paige’s mother?! It’s going to be a little strange/hard seeing Kassie as Eve.

Who’s the daddy of Paige?

I hope her father is either Peter Blake, Frankie Brady or maybe Danial…i have another guess above tieing her to Jordan and Ben but i like my first three guesses the best!!! Eve and Jen were enemies so it would be interesting if Frankie was Paiges father since Jen and Frankie were once involved…Eve could come between Jen and Danial if he was her pappy…if Peter Blakes the daddy it would make Paige another Dimera…endless possibilities!!!

Did Eve ever hook up with Peter Blake? I don’t remember it.

You’re absolutely right, Jim! Of all the choices, none would be bad! Personally, I’m hoping Frankie is Paige’s father, but it’s all good!

Paige’s dad is Eve;s old pimp Nick Corelli

Eve never was with Peter on screen but couldve met him off screen after leaving Salem…its just one of several possibilities on my wish list!

You can make your wishes come true if you wrote for DAYS! What are you waiting for? Get an agent and send some samples to Corday Productions. Don’t forget about us little people.

Eve was off canvas before we ever saw Peter Blake.

There is a slim chance they could have met off screen if the writer choose to go there but im hoping Frankie or Danial turns out to b Paige’s dad!!!

What day does she first air?

Wednesday June 18th

The 18th I believe.

This Wednesday!

dig deep girls in to the trenches

the Donovan women : are ON

Oye! Jenn’s bible thumping DAYS are taking a hit…. spiral fast

Oye ! the nobility of it all…. rests on Daniel and Jenn

fastidious nature take hold…. NOT! the cross is full… of Daniel and Jennifer

let’s glamazon parlay some spirited imbue with HOTNESS


Eve and Theresa
befriend and hoopla it up with Kristen : come and get it

Salemites fester stew and rally little

LOL women are on the horizon….

with equal panache : the men will ride this… and/or coattails… what this drama is about

with equal meausre : Eric, Brady, Justin,


a whole lotta Michael Muhney would be right about NOW

his guns are ready…. Peter Reckell
or Ted King

Trevor St. John
Brandon Barash

Jack come home… to shut up Jennifer… would be amazing : Matthew Ashford

please do not taint Eve saddled any where near Daniel

Justin is coming

hmmm I think you might be spending some time in Teresa’s apt… lol….

I was thinking the same thing 😉

I think DOOL needs to address why Ben and Jordan seem to be on the run. This storyline has gone long enough. Something needs to shake it up because I no longer care about Jordan’s storyline with Rafe. It seems crazy he would not have sled for more concrete answers about her past, especially being a police officer.

I am ready for Eve to come back to the show. But, it doesn’t make any sense that she is related to Theresa and they have never shared a scene and it seems Theresa does not know they are related. Has she not talked to Kim and Shane about Eve in 20 years? I still think Paige looks too young for JJ.

John seems to be back in Salem only to smirk and to follow Brady around. I have never liked the character it seems they are grasping for a storyline for him.

Hi Ray! I think Rafe will spin out of control because of Gabi going to prison. He will push Jordan away and end up with Kate. That will probably be when the mystery man finds Jordan and Rafe will not be there to help her. Ben to the rescue! This story could end up being one of the best ever!

Hang in there. I think we’ll get a good payoff!!!


that is a great idea! say what fans will….. Kate and Rafe sizzled… ooh la la temptress : with his all man

sidebar: I wish Sheryl was back… pregnant with Lucas baby. this pair sizzles

It better be a good payoff because like Ray said its gone on long enough and ive also complained about its dragginess…maybe Eve will be part of it too!!!

Why do they keep saying “cousin”? How is the child of your half-sister a cousin? Isn’t she a niece? Actually, since they mean Theresa, isn’t she an aunt? I assume they are speaking of Theresa, as it sure looked like her aprtment Paige was in the other day. (I wonder where she hangs out when Theresa and Brady are banging and coking up on the couch.) :p

I figured out for myself that if Frankie is Paige’s father, like someone up above suggested, then Theresa and Paige would be cousins, since Frankie is Kimberly’s brother (though not biologically, of course.) How awsome would it be if Billy Warlock came back?!

I too was wondering who this cousin is that Paige is staying with. But I don’t see how Paige could be staying with Theresa as JJ has been to Theresa’s apartment and surely he’d recognize it. Plus, with all the drugging and sexing Theresa and Brady are into, no wonder Paige would rather pick up trash.

And yes, Theresa is Paige’s aunt, not cousin.

When JJ and Paige were making out on the couch the other day I was like, “isnt’ that Theresa’s apartment”? I thought it couldn’t be because JJ would know it was Theresa’s apartment. What’s up with that? Suddenly Paige got interesting to me.

I agree with both of you. It did at least look like Theresa’s place, but then again, I guess all of those Salem apartments kind of look alike, so maybe it wasn’t???? Or maybe JJ has selective amnesia? 🙂 (Or the writers think we do haha)

Yes, good move to bring Kassie on. With Allison leaving, this could fill the void. Look forward to seeing her.

Can’t wait to see KDP on my screen again. Welcome to DOOL!

Days is the BEST soap on daytime! ‘Nuff said!

Agreed! I’m so loving Days.

How exciting! Another reason to watch DAYS. Kassie would have also made a great Phyllis on Y&R.

Yes jared, Kassie would have made a great Phyllis, but Gina Tagnoni got the role of Phyllis. Gina will rock as the new Phyllis Newman.

Will be very happy to see Kassie again. She was wonderful as Blair on OLTL. While I am really enjoying DOOL, I’m still missing Llanview like crazy!!!!!!!!!

You’re not alone. I still miss OLTL too.

Dvr is set and I hope the work day goes quick tomorrow. GH lost is Day’s gain! Welcome back to daytime Kassie!

Can’t they get New writers they stink can’t write for nothing Replace Greg Meng immediately & Crew stories are way to boring No couples at all Hope needs Bo Back Hope & Marlena need some Children involved . Shawn & Belle whats going on with the John story also Brady is Out of Control they need to write a Better story for Brady come on .. Rafe & Jordan why would the writers make him go back & Sleep w/ Kate ruin a nice Couple there .. Abgail & Ben I can see Chemistry there ok until Chad & Melanie comes back , Jack needs to be brought back or hve Peter Blake Recast for Jennifer story w/her & Daniel was boring & to winey yukkke Let Daniel be with the new Eve Donovan , Kristen please give her a Contract like they did for her on Y&R share her there so much juicy story Arc to tell with her …. w/ Brady & Eric & the rest Nicole give her finally a Love Interest & a Child at least . Then you got Victor & Maggie bring in her Daughters Sarah Horton & Melissa plus you got Victors all 3 Grandsons out there from Justin & Adrienne yah where are they by the way plus Phillip Kiriakis & Mimi Lockhart as well . Alex Marshall he can be Like the New Villian like Stefano taken REVENGE on mostly those who were involved in Murder of his Grandson Nick Fallon that would be EPIC wow & bring back Emma from the Dead that hottt Actress that played her was Hottttt on Fire for the show & Especially if they brought back from the Dead Stefano Daughter Megan Hathaway that’ll be Epic too for REVENGE on Hope Williams regarding Bo Brady ….. Then you got Abe Carver the story with Maxine bring in her children which i believe those 2 New Cast SHAUNA & MICAH arrive sometime in the Fall would be a great mixed too …. Then they can always bring in back from Beyond Lexie Carver Look a Like Renee Jones playing her what a great loss she was to the show ……there so much Story to Tell on Days w/the Brady s ,Hortons , DiMera s , Carvers , Donovans, Kiriakis , Marshalls …..please do something from the Announce Loss of EJ , Sami , Gabi, Nick , Johnny, Sydney , & the Last thing the Corday should Definately Change is the Opening of the Hour Glass to Up Beat Hottt Change for the New Generation to catch a Stronger Audience like the Other show Y&R , GH ,B&B it all worked for them …. Please do something Now to change this Boring show which i Love its a Big Mess hope you can see it …..ReVamp it now not far is the 50TH ANNIVERSARY i would love my Favorite #1 show to Last into beyond 2016 ‘ You guys hve the eck of Cards in your Hands to Revamp & Change DAYS OF OUR LIVES around please hear us Loyal Fans …..God Bless always

DAYS must never give up the hourglass!

I have to agree with 4ever DAYS. I love the hourglass and the soothing tone of Macdonald Carey’s voice. I hope DOOL’s opening never changes. It’s like a warm blanket on a dreary day. Comforting.

Love Cassie but she is too old to play Eve. I must say it again, Cassie should be Phyllis on Y&R and Gina Tognoli (nu-Phyllis) should be Eve.

I think Kassie DePaiva is going to be just fine…. as Eve… I Love how much press she is

i think as the older Gina Tognoni gets… her chiseled hard features will wane on and would be too edgy

I like Kassie DePaiva full figure soft healthy becoming look again is stirring trigger
I certainly liked/loved her on GH… I’d say KP and Laura wright were so similar… but… it’s Kassie that intrigues more

I think KD as Eve.. is able to pull off a mind of her own and render Eve with character aplomb… and take Salem by storm….

then one thing I’m fretting :

don’t let another actor… who’s quality big stuff… go by the wayside… just for used to be grans jewel dull dim Jennifer HORTON….

I’m livid and so OVER : Jenn parading HER crusade holier than thou grandstand…

how dare she diss Theresa like yesterdays news and trash her…. what an opportune big time venture for Kassie DePaiva to bring her down

by this point… Daniel and Jenn could be naked in Horton Square…. as SQUARE as they are…. Adam and Eve …

if disdain is on… i’m it

There is an opportunity for Kassie to replace Eileen Davidson as the villainess we “love to hate”. Toward that end, I wish Kassie MUCH success! Days really needs her now that Eileen has signed with Y&R. Sock it to’em, Kassie!

…and by the way, WELCOME to Salem!

She’s on my screen for a few moments and I’m already hooked! Smart move bringing the great KDP to DOOL! I’m lovin’ it!

Oh, my gosh!

I am so excited for DAYS production

i’ll have to catch up this weekend

tell us please : if you will : your assessment

on the Lovely : Kass

does she look the part…. not too “old” dare i say : for fan summation

Need new writers. Days is really going downhill.

I mean no disrespect to Kassie DePaiva. But, she is NOT, and I will never accept her as Eve Donovan. I have watched “Days” since 1983. So, I watched the show through the entire “Eve” years. Charlotte Ross portrayed that role exceptionally. Kassie’s a wonderful actress. But, in my opinion, she is not Eve Donovan. I feel the same way about Josh Taylor portraying Roman Brady. No offense Josh, but you are not, never walks, and never will be Roman Augustus Brady. Wayne Northrop will always be Roman Brady.

OKAY…..Kassie’s age is RIDICULOUS as Eve Donovan! Charles Shaugnessy is 59 years old….Kassie DePaiva is 53 !!!!!!!! Couldn’t “Days” execs made a better offer to Charlotte Ross to reprise HER role as the ONE and DEFINITIVE Eve Donovan.

You’re saying the ages of the performers, not the characters. I love Charlotte Ross, but KDP is doing a great job! I think CR has many irons in the fire.

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.

Days of our Lives Star Blake Berris Chats On the Everett Lynch/Bobby Stein Mystery, Working with His New Co-Stars, and the Last Christmas Episode with Bill Hayes

On Days of our Lives, the return of Blake Berris is making for some very intriguing drama, with the audience guessing just which way the story will go.

When Berris arrived back on Days of our Lives, after previously playing Nick Fallon, he was taking on the new role of Everett Lynch, who has a past with Stephanie Johnson (Abigail Klein) and Jada Hunter (Elia Cantu). Only, as it has been revealed, the past he had with Jada was under the name “Bobby Stein,” who from what we can tell was far from a nice guy.

Blake visited the Michael Fairman Channel for a livestream interview this week, where fans in the live chat were weighing-on what could be the truth about the guy – is he a split personality suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder? Did the accident that cost him a year of his life in a coma, never happen? Recently, someone set fire to the beloved Horton house. Fans are suspecting it would have been “Bobby” who is working for Clyde Weston (James Read). Others believe that Everett/Bobby could actually be Clyde’s son. With upcoming therapy sessions with Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) about to start, things are about to get more juicy in Salem.

Photo: JPI

Here are just a few excerpts from our conversation with Blake on a myriad of Everett/Bobby subjects. Make sure to check out the full interview for more.

Did you know that they were going to make Everett Lynch a Jewish character? This is only the second time in the history of the show that they have even had a Jewish character on the canvas. Didn’t they reveal this at the Horton family Christmas episode?

BLAKE: No, they never asked me. I am half-Jewish on my dad’s side. There was never like, ‘You’re Jewish, right? We can call you Jewish on the show?’ At the Horton Christmas, “They made a real point of it, yeah.”

And now the new ‘character’ is “Bobby Stein” …

BLAKE: “Right, and that suggests more Jewish, and then Lynch must be coming from somewhere else, maybe the mother. I was so curious because I think the show has been historically, I’m gonna say, Catholic more than like Wasps. With the Bradys there’s this sort of Irish influence, and then the DiMeras, that’s Italian. So, we’ve got Catholics sort of on both sides that are dominant. Now I, “represent”.

Photo: JPI

What has it been like working with Abigail Klein?

BLAKE: I think she is extraordinary. We start off sort of frosty, or she’s frosty with me, like she doesn’t want to let me in. And then, for a while things are going really well. I just could not adore Abigail more. She’s such a good actor. I could always rely on her to bring me back into a scene and be there in this emotionally, supportive way.

Photo: JPI

Everett and Chad seemed to be becoming friend-ish, when all went awry when at the PCPD interrogation room, Everett let him know about Elia and Bobby Stein, and Chad let him have it for worming his way back in to Stephanie’s life.

BLAKE: Billy would call us the ‘disgusting brothers’ and that’s a reference from Succession, because all of a sudden they’re just so chummy with each other. It’s like all of a sudden we just had this like ‘Bernstein and Woodward’, sort of dynamic duo. I think that Everett really started to think of Chad as a friend and feels sort of disappointed, and he feels, “Oh, it’s that easy? I just needed to have some other identity and now you’re a fair-weather friend?”‘

Photo: JPI

In recent scenes, Jada sees Bobby Stein for the first time, and we see you and Elia Cantu share scenes with each other for the first time. What is it like working with Elia?

BLAKE: She’s fire, man. She comes in hot and she tells you the way it’s going to be. I think early on, we were trying to suss each other out and the more we worked together, the more comfortable you get with somebody. I think actors do this sometimes with each other; if there’s spice on screen, you like to keep some of what you have on-screen in your (real-life) interactions because it helps … it helps the work.  Eventually, we just sort of wore each other down and we’re like, ‘I actually totally get you, and you’re great.'”

Did you know that they were going to make Everett Lynch a Jewish character? This is only the second time in the history of the show that they have even had a Jewish character and didn’t they reveal this at the Horton family Christmas episode?

BLAKE: No, they never asked me. I am half-Jewish on my dad’s side. There was never like, ‘You’re Jewish, right? We can call you Jewish on the show?’ At the Horton Christmas, “They made a real point of it, yeah.”

And now the new ‘character’ is “Bobby Stein” …

BLAKE: “Right, and that suggests more Jewish, and then Lynch must be coming from somewhere else, maybe the mother. I was so curious because I think the show has been historically, I’m gonna say, Catholic more than like Wasps. With the Bradys there’s this sort of Irish influence, and then the DiMeras, that’s Italian. So we’ve got Catholics sort of on both sides that are dominant. Now I, “represent”.

Photo: JPI

You were on set and in the annual Horton Christmas episode which sadly marked the last for Days of our Lives legendary Bill Hayes, who passed away in January of this year.  What do you recall of that tape day?

BLAKE: It was the Christmas episode when we were watching Susan (Julie) and Bill, say ‘Merry Christmas.’  And there was something about it that just felt like it could be the last time. I mean, it wrecked us all on set. Bill gets so choked up and there was something really profound about the moment. They kiss each other as they have so many times before on the show. It was just beautiful. It felt beautiful to be there for that last Christmas. He’s just such an icon. Every time I’d see him, he was so with it … he knew my name, he knew his lines. What an incredible, incredible man.

Photo: JPI

Fans will get to see Everett in therapy sessions with Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)? Would you say she is helping the guy?

BLAKE: Deidre’s always making jokes about Marlena, ‘She’s the worst therapist in the world’ (Laughs) I remember in the first therapy session, we almost couldn’t get through the scenes because it’s just so clear that Everett has a litany of very profound psychological issues that he is going to have to work through. He’ll keep coming back. This guy’s gonna pay the bills!

Photo: JPI

Viewers are waiting to see how they mystery of Everett Lynch/Bobby Stein plays out. What can you say as a tease for what’s to come?

BLAKE: As far as a tease, I would say, you have all these characters sort of, trying to wake up the ‘sleeping giant’ in a way. I think it’s safe to say that like if you poke a bear, the bear might wake up.

Watch the livestream chat with Blake in full below.

Now let us know, what do you think is going with Everett/Bobby? What has happened to him in his past? Share your theories in the comment section below, and make sure to catch Days of our Lives next week on Peacock for more to his story.
