Are any favorite performers from yesteryear returning to the daytime drama, this week, or in the near future?
Have any new actors or actresses been cast on the show in contract, recurring or day player roles?
Are any well-remembered stars from other soaps, past or present, about to join Days of Our Lives fold in surprise new parts?
Here’s the latest casting news from the NBC soap.
The week of December 24, 2018
He’s baaaaaaaack… After six years away from the Salem fold, Matthew Ashford resurfaces as Jack Deveraux on Friday, December 28.
Look for the actor to make a short, but memorable first appearance just as the ball drops on New Year’s Eve at Doug’s Place. Ashford’s character was last seen in 2012, when Jack was presumably killed in an elevator accident.
Also returning to town on Friday, December 28 is Kassie DePaiva as Eve Donovan. DePaiva last aired in late October, when her character headed to California to visit her sister Theresa (Jen Lilley) and father Shane (Charles Shaughnessy), after a breaking up with Brady (Eric Marstsolf).
Meanwhile, Arianne Zucker, whose character Nicole Walker was presumed to have died in a fire in October, is already back on set filming. She won’t air until 2019.
Andre Khabbazi is back as Dr. Henry Shah on Friday, December 28. The Salem University Hospital medico will be Jennifer’s (Melissa Reeves) date.
Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
