Poor Abby Deveraux DiMera is going through a hard time on Days of our Lives (DOOL) since her husband Chad DiMera slept with her half-sister, but Marci Miller is all smiles as she celebrates her special day!
Happy Birthday, Marci Miller
Marci Miller was born on August 2, 1989, in the small farming town of North Liberty, Indiana, and that means she is turning 32 today! She was named after her grandmother, Marci(a) Jo Scurlock, while her younger sister, believe it or not, was named after Kayla on DAYS.
The Daytime Emmy-nominated actress studied vocal performance at nearby Bethel College. After graduating college, she went overseas and lived in Paris, France for two months. Eventually, she moved to Louisville, Kentucky to pursue theatrical opportunities and soon after headed for Los Angeles.
She met the love of her life, Ryan Matteson, and the two got married on November 29, 2008. With her personal life in order, Miller hit the ground running with her acting career.
In 2009, she was in the movie The Perfect Gift. After that, she was in several short films. In 2014, she appeared in The Aspect Ratio, The Amateur, and Most Likely to Die with gossip king, Perez Hilton, and Heather Morris from Glee.
While several other projects made 2016 a good year for the actress, in June of that year it was announced that she was taking over the coveted role of Abigail from Daytime Emmy-winner for Outstanding Supporting Actress, Kate Mansi.
While they were tough shoes to fill, Miller proved herself worthy, quickly garnering a nomination in the almost impossible category of Outstanding Lead Actress. While she didn’t win, she proved that the seemingly closed club wasn’t, after all, for the right person.
Miller left the role but after Kate Mansi returned and left again, she returned to take back Abby. The character left town after taking a lot of personal hits while the actress has been on maternity leave. She gave birth to her daughter earlier this year in March.
