Who’s coming and who’s going from Days of Our Lives? Here’s the latest casting news from the NBC soap.
The week of October 24, 2016
Daniel Cosgrove, who was axed as Aiden in 2015 and returned in 2016, has been pink-slipped — again. He wraps up his second stint with the soap, this week.
Vanessa Williams — the actress who appeared on Melrose Place and The Flash, not the one who starred on Desperate Housewives – joins Days as Valerie Grant. The character hasn’t been on the canvas since 1982, when she was played by Tina Andrews. Valerie, who’s now a cardiologist, pops up on Tuesday, October 25 to tend to her ailing old friend and flame, Abe.
The last of the escaped cons terrorizing Salem have departed. George Del Hoyo left after a 6-week stint on Wednesday October 19, when Orpheus was taken into police custody and committed suicide.
