So, SOD describes Summer as being in her early 40s.

What about Jessica Collins? She’s 44.

Jimh – The Bree Williamson was the last actress to play Jessica Buchanan on OLTL. She did a wonderful job. I agree she would be a great choice for this Days role.

I like your suggestion of Kimberlin Brown—it doesn’t seem like she will be back as Sheila on the CBS soaps and she can play looney better than anyone—here’s hoping!!!

LOL, Jimh! I’ve decided to wish for Julia Roberts whom was suggested by Greg. Jennifer Aniston would be good too!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Now that she has been mentioned i just bet Jennifer Aniston will get the part and will be in scenes with her dad John…as Victor i can see him catching her stealing something from the K mansion and Victor remarking something like, ‘Where is your father? Have you had no proper upbringing?’ she replies, ‘You remind me of him’…she could turn out to even be his long lost daughter or maybe she kidnaps Brady and Theresa’s baby???

Yes, Jimh!

And her character can put Tate on the black market where he is eventually adopted by a character played by Brooke Shields (she played a rabid DAYS fan on ‘Friends’)!

Alicia Minshew. She’s said she grew up watching DOOL and she has friends in the cast. Plus she lives in NY and probably wouldn’t want to do a long term contract on a west coast soap.

Kimberlin Brown would be good! She’s missed in daytime!

Beth Chamberlin, Fiona Hutchinson or Beth Ehlers! Of course of they could also make Carly have a twin and bring Crystal Chapell back!

I said the same thing that it should be Fiona Hutchinson since she played a thief so well on Guiding Light! But I would be happy with Beth Ehlers and Beth Chamberlain also.

Martha Byrne, Beth Ehlers, Jennifer Landon, Cady McClain, or Noelle Beck would be great! And sometimes short term roles turn into long term ones! It happens all the time.

Either Bree Williamson, age 35, or Florencia Lozano, age 45, would be great. Both did outstanding work on OLTL. It would be great to see Florencia and Kassie DePaiva work together again.

Susan Haskell, who played Marty on OLTL, could do this role. She’s good at the troubled outcast looking for attention.

i really miss the second colleen on y n r – Adrienne Leonne, not sure why she was recast with the last one. I really miss her colleen and jt on y n r… maybe days could cast her as summer. She plays tough really well! i could picture her and Shawn D really hot together!

Bree Williamson sounds perfect for the casting breakdown except that she’s a bit too young.

If the age was right, I would say Debbie Morgan as the show NEEDS ethnicity. Also immediately thought of Brianna Brown (GH, Devious Maids) as she’s great at playing bad. She just signed on to a new pilot, so don’t know if she would do a short term role or if the pilot will take all her time.

People seem to ignore that the breakdown called for someone in their 40’s. She may be a bit too old in the age bracket they are looking for, but what about Cady McClain? I think she’d be fantastic in the role and would kill to see her back on daytime! She should be working on a soap opera that is going to use her talents for all they are worth!

Okay, I might be in minority here but I don’t think this is good news. All these actress being named are wonderful, but the gig is short term, I think they all deserve longer contracts if any of them are chosen. To me it is insulting to offer an experienced day time actress a part only to capitalized on their name and then tossed them to the curb when they don’t their bit to hike ratings during no doubt will be a sweeps period. This is basically stunt casting which really doesn’t add anything to the show– if this character… Read more »

How about Patty Duke – she’s young at heart and started acting was she was about seven years old. She deserves a consideration.

“Summer,” really? Y&R already has a (dreadful) character named Summer.

Are there no more names available?! Talk about your lack of imagination. I am disappointed in you, Sony, but that doesn’t surprise me when you put out one movie called PASSENGERS and then a few years later you do it again, but with a completely different plot.

Sony what has happened to you? You are better than this!

They often use a different name in the casting call than the actual name of the character.

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

Photo: JPI

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”

Victoria Konefal Confirms Her Exit From Days of our Lives

As the rumors circulated they were today proven true.  Victoria Konefal (Ciara) has left Days of our Lives as a full-time cast member with the long-running NBC soap opera.

In a statement to Deadline, Konefal shared: “I cherish every moment I have spent working on Days of Our Lives. It is an honor and a privilege to work in an environment filled with so much talent and passion in every direction. The experience and knowledge I’ve accumulated over the past three years is irreplaceable, and I’m forever grateful for it. I would love the opportunity to continue working with my castmates in the future, but at this time I will not be returning as a full-time cast member. To the cast and crew, it was an absolute pleasure working with you. To the loving and unwaveringly supportive fans, thank you. Thank you for joining me on my journey of finding Ciara Brady. It was a beautiful one. Cheers to some of the best days of my life.”

However with that statement, it does appear Konefal has left the door open for her to return as Ciara in a guest-star type of appearance or in a arc of a storyline- time will tell just how that pans out.

Konefal joined the show as the new Ciara Brady back in 2017, and became popular as part of the tortured duo known as “Cin’ along with Rob Scott Wilson (Ben) who’s on-screen nuptials aired this week on the show.

Since Days taped so far ahead of air before the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown and has episodes through Mid-October in the can, it would appear Konefal would make her on-screen exit during that time, since she will not be returning to the series, when it begins production again, which is projected to start on September 1st.

Konefal joins the list of departures since the beginning of this year which now include: Casey Moss, Chandler Massey, Freddie Smith, Galen Gering, Greg Vaughan and Kristian Alfonso.

So, sad to see Victotia exit as Ciara? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
