Kate Mansi, the woman who put Cray Abby on the Days of Our Lives (DOOL) map before Marci Miller took over as a more subdued Abigail, earned an Emmy nod for her work last year and can’t contain her joy.
“I’m just so grateful for the exciting news, and I’m so thrilled for the nominees, and I’m really honored to be included with all of those women,” the actress told Soap Central.
She also pointed out she’s thrilled for a very special reason–that it’s the last chance she has to be honored for her final Abby work.
“It is bittersweet, because this is my fifth year now and my last year now to ever be included in this.”
However, Mansi didn’t mean it was the last time she’d ever be included at the Daytime Emmys, and clarified that she rules nothing out.
“Well, I mean with Abigail and my story that was, right now, that is what it is. But who knows what the future holds? That’s the last time for that run of it.”
Hopefully, it’s not the last we’ve seen of Mansi on daytime. Lately, she’s worked on a string of films, including Lifetime’s Boyfriend Killer. But, if she doesn’t return as Abby one day, there are still three other soaps to try.
