There is life after Days of Our Lives… at least there is for Marci Miller, who left the role of Abby this past May. The actress has revealed a new role she’s undertaking… and a secret is involved!
Miller is appearing in a project in which she told the social media world about a set-side secret in a snap she shared on Instagram.
“I’m literally standing on 2 pine cones to act as a secret pair of high heels. #bts #macgyver”
The actress, who stands at 5′ 4″, found an ingenious way (in other words, very much like TV’s MacGyver) to deal with the height difference with her fellow actor. You often hear of actors having to stand on an apple box but pine cones are an interesting alternative.
The former Daytime Emmy nominee didn’t specify which project this was for but she has kept busy since leaving the soap so there are a couple of possibilities. She appeared as Kendall Bryant in the pilot Gods of Medicine.
She’s also filming a horror flick called F.E.A.R., about a terrifying pathogen that’s released in a sleepy mountain town where one family who has to fight to save their children against a revenge-filled band of marauders. That one seems to be the better fit with the cold exterior.
Meanwhile, as one Abby moves forward, the other is about to do the same. This week we willl see Abby and Chad reunite and take off for Europe as Kate Mansi and Billy Flynn leave the show.
Mansi and Miller have been extremely supportive of each other on social media, commenting on each other’s posts from time to time.
Recently on Twitter, a fan wrote an impassioned defense of Miller’s time as Abby and the actress responded, saying, “Love and more love. Big squeeze to Chabby fans for lovingly folding me in for a couple years. Was an honor to be a part of something so special. Xoxo!!”
