Days of Our Lives fans have been just as upset (well almost) as Chad that Abigail has been gone.
The difference is fans know that Abby is still alive, while Chad thinks she died in a plane crash. All of that will change very soon when Marci Miller takes over the role from Kate Mansi this week. The actress spoke with YahooTV about her return and what it’s like to step into a role made popular by another actress.
Recasts are not always received well on soap operas, but when the character was so beloved – and so missed – it sometimes makes the transition for a new actor to step into the role a bit easier.
“The fans have been so warm, and so welcoming, and there’s really been such a positive foundation that’s been laid with the Abigail character, and the relationship between she and Chad,” Miller told YahooTV.
The character’s “death” on the show was a shocker, and it’s a good guess that her resurrection will be just as surprising for most Salemites, especially for her mother Jennifer (Melissa Reeves), brother JJ (Casey Moss), and loving husband Chad.
