Wally Kurth Reassures DAYS Fans That: "I'm Still In Salem. Still The DA. Still Working …"

The multi-talented Wally Kurth (Justin, DAYS) took to his Twitter account to reassure fans who saw the report yesterday via About.com that related that Kurth and his longtime scene partner, Judi Evans (Adrienne) were taken off contract, but put on recurring status with the NBC soap opera.

Kurth related:  “News sure travels fast these days. I just heard yesterday afternoon @ my Days status. Woke up and heard it again on Twitter.”  He continued to instill viewers to keep watching for Justin:  “I’m still in Salem. Still the DA. Still working. The show is really good and I’m still having fun. Remember, it’s called showBusiness.”

Recently, viewers have seen Kurth having a new on-screen flame in Kassie DePaiva’s Eve Donovan, while we know that Justin and Adrienne are never truly out of each others lives.  And then there is the matter of Killer Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) being caught and brought to justice.  Will DA Kiriakis help put this criminal behind bars?  Stay tuned.

So, what do you think about the sentiments shared by Wally? Glad to understand he is still working away in Salem?  Comment below!

It is a good thing- recurring..
It gives the actors opportunities to do other projects and still be employed with the soap and still guaranteed a certain amounts episodes, usually 2-3 a week, and even more a week if they are involved in an upfront story….
and! the bonus / Wally can now do GH episodes, guest thing as before :)..

the only ones who prosper from a solid contract are the big stars, they get a flat rate no matter if in a story or not..(millions?)

Remember how Will’s death was supposed to give story to those who loved him? Well, Sonny abandoned his daughter to be raised by straights, Lucas is backburned, Sami doesn’t mention Will and is obsessed with EJ and Justin and Adrienne are off contract and have no story. No, I don’t think the naked, homophobic pandering was about good story for the characters left in the aftermath. We’ve got the Rafe of Our Lives – and a slew of new faces created by Tweedle Death And Tweedle Dumb (Griffith and Higley) who thought that by destroying the gay, the Westboro Baptist… Read more »

I thought the show would stop being so cruel after they were done obliterating Will and the gay family unit, but that was just the hateful warm up. It seems we’ve go plenty more mean-spirited and nasty stories ahead. At least Wally will get a few lines as DA but damn this show has turned dark.

I am glad that he is still there but now maybe he can play both Justin and Ned again! I think Days messed up and they should have went ahead and put him with Eve instead of letting Kassie DPV go. Wally has chemistry with about every lady they put him with IMO.

I thought the same thing as far as Wally playing both characters. I do love it when he spends a day or so at GH. I will always think of him as Ned.

I have not felt chemistry Justin has had the same chemistry with Adrienne since he came back to Salem. I think DOOL is missing a huge opportunity to have a great couple by pairing him with Kate. I am not feeling any chemistry with her and Eduardo. Justin and Phillip need to be the next generation of Kiriakis. I also think the show is missing the boat by not having a triangle with Justin/Kate/Eve.

That’s good to hear, but I’ve always known an actor can be recurring and still be featured alot. Wally just doesn’t have a guarantee. Now he has a chance to go back and forth between DAYS and GH or be contracted to GH.

John Aniston (Victor) has chosen to be recurring for many years and we have the honor of his presence quite often!

Hope to see him back on GH as Ned–this might give me a reason to watch GH regularly again!!

We’re we promised a good story for Justin and Adrienne? No mind, I’m sure everyone will love the slew of new faces being brought on board by the new writers. Because look what happened to all the ones brought on by the previous writers – so it will be totally worth getting invested in the show. It’s full of light and joy and happy endings.

Wally is so sweet to defend Deaths of Our Lives this way. I’m sure there will be a lot for the DA to do with the next round of killing and death and misery.

Cady McClain IN As DAYS Jennifer Temporarily Replacing Melissa Reeves

Rumors that have been swirling are confirmed true.  Cady McClain is coming to Salem and Days of our Lives to replace Melissa Reeves temporarily as the new Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  The casting news was confirmed by a Days spokesperson, according to Soap Opera Digest.

Daytime fans recall, Cady is a two-time Daytime Emmy winner and has previously appeared as Dixie on All My Children, Rosanna on As the World Turns and Kelly on The Young and the Restless.  McClain has already begun filming as Jennifer.

Reeves, who commutes from Nashville to Los Angeles to tape episodes of Days of our Lives, decided not to return to set when the NBC soap opera resumed production earlier this month due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,

In addition, Melissa became a grandmother last month with her daughter Emily’s first child, and now soon will welcome her son Larry’s first child later this month, which is another reason Reeves chose to stay put in Tennessee.

So, what do you think of the Jennifer switcheroo? Excited to see what Cady brings to the role? Comment below.

Knots Landing longtime fan favorite, Kevin Dobson (Mack McKenzie) has passed away at the age of 77.  The actor’s death was first reported by the United Veterans Council of San Joaquin County’s Facebook page.  Dobson died on Sunday, September 6th via “medical complications”.

When Don Murray’s exited Knots Landing in 1982, Dobson was cast in the role of M. Patrick (“Mack”) McKenzie, the love interest for Michele Lee’s Karen.  Lee and Dobson became an undeniable favorite duo of the CBS primetime soap opera and for all-time in soap history.  During his run on ‘Knot’s from its fourth season to its conclusion in 1993, Dobson won five Soap Opera Digest Awards for his performances.

Marci Miller Opens Up About Her Decision to Return to DAYS and Her Concerns Replacing Kate Mansi

This week will mark the return of Marci Miller in the role of Abigail Deveraux DiMera on Days of our Lives.

The popular actress, who had been nominated for two Daytime Emmys in the Lead Actress category during her initial run on the NBC soap opera, revealed some of the complex emotions she had in determining whether or not to come back to Salem as detailed in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now.

Once again, Miller is taking over the role from her predecessor, Kate Mansi.  As DAYS fans know. Mansi won a Daytime Emmy for her work as Outstanding Supporting Actress in 2017 and first played the role from 2011-2016, then Miller took over the role.  Abigail’s last arc was played by Mansi when she returned from 2018- to the first part of 2020.  Miller had stepped away from the role in 2018 as she wanted to concentrate on other projects.

In regards to her comeback, Miller shared with SOD: “You never know how discombobulating it might be.  That was one of the things I had to weigh in coming back, was whether or not it was fair to the fans for me to accept (the offer) because Kate hadn’t been there for a very long stint. For them to do this flip-flop thing was a little bit of a concern of mine.”

Miller ultimately says she felt that it was better to have Abigail on the canvas, than not in all, and in the hands of an actress who was familiar with the role than a new actress to take over the part.

Make sure to check out SOD for more on Marci’s decision to return to the NBC soap opera.

Meanwhile, look for an exciting story ahead for Miller when Abigail gets back in action in Salem.

So, what do you think of Marci’s careful thought-process to coming home to DAYS? Comment below.
