Here is a list of the top release and entry news for the Four Day Dramas. Find out if any of your favorite performers from yesteryear returns on the shows you follow, or if new actors or actresses have been picked for contract, recurring, or daytime roles.
Days of our lives
Days of our Lives grabbed another sitcom star. Marla Gibbs (The Jeffersons) has been chosen to play Olivia Price, the mother of Paulina (JackÃ©e Harry). The two actresses previously worked together on the prime-time hit 227. Gibbs begins airing in mid-August.
AJ McLean of the Backstreet Boys is also heading to DAYS in a small role. He will play the role of a driver in the soap opera. McLean shot his scenes last week, so it won’t air for several weeks.
The soap opera recast and aged the former daughter of Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk), Rachel. Finley Rose Slater has reprized the role and will begin airing in October.
On the side of the General Hospital, actress Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) has temporarily left the soap opera. The actress underwent brain surgery in June, which dictated the movement of the script. Expect Maxie to stay out of town, while Storms recovers at home.
David Leeshock ended his two day stay as David Hopkins. The character was the helicopter pilot, whom Anna (Finola Hughes) and Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) interviewed about Peter (Wes Ramsey) in New York City.
