Fans have known for months that “Days of Our Lives” planned to recast Kate Mansi. The show searched high and low to find their brand-new Abby and finally did in the form of actress Marci Miller.
While Miller won’t be seen on screen till fall and Mansi’s last shows have yet to air, fans are getting ready for a new face in Chad’s life. Soap Hub asked if you’re excited to see Miller take over the role and test out her chemistry with Billy Flynn’s Chad.
