Kassie DePaiva Reveals Great News
The Daytime Emmy-nominated actress plays Eve Donovan on the NBC serial. During the Locher Room OLTL reunion where she played Blair Kramer, DePaiva was asked if she’d be back in Salem anytime soon.
“DAYS shoots eight months ahead of schedule,” DePaiva noted. “I shot some episodes before Thanksgiving last year and in January of this year. I think I’ll start airing in July and August.”
Eve bolted from Salem after it was proved she was not responsible for longtime nemesis Jennifer’s (Melissa Reeves) fall. As DAYS fans know, Hope (Kristian Alfonso), thinking she was evil Princess Gina was the true culprit. DePaiva first joined DAYS in 2014, taking the role over from Charlotte Ross, who originated the part back in 1987.
Kassie DePaiva’s casting made her a member of a group of actors who’ve been on all three networks playing soap opera characters. The actress first joined daytime in the fall of 1986 as Chelsea, a member of the Reardon clan, on CBS soap opera Guiding Light. She played the part till early 1991.
Next, the actress turned up as Blair on ABC’s One Life to Live in 1993. DePaiva stayed in Llanview until the show’s final network episode in January 2012. She did a few episodes as Blair on General Hospital and then reprised Blair again in the short-lived web version of OLTL on The Online Network in 2013.
DePaiva and her husband James DePaiva (ex-Max) reunited on The Locher Room with fellow OLTL cast members Daytime Emmy-winner Robert S. Woods (ex-Bo), Daytime Emmy-winner Hillary B. Smith (ex-Nora), and Tuc Watkins (ex-David). You can see the online reunion by clicking here. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
