While Kate Mansi has already won an Outstanding Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy for her work on Days of Our Lives, she’s not about to back down from another challenge. In fact, she’s taken on another role at the show that has already made her on-screen mom proud.

Direct From Kate Mansi

So proud that Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) had to mark the occasion with lots of pictures because she was so proud of the young woman she’s watched grow up in front of her eyes playing her daughter Abigail. But even fake TV moms can be a little overbearing with “first-day” pictures, as the actress herself addresses.

Mansi was wearing a hat of a different kind on this particular first day — that as DAYS’ newest director. She shared the news on Instagram, along with a few images.

“Aaaaand here’s why these pictures are special : before I started the day, @missyreeves came in the booth to take photos of me on my first day, (as any decent mamma would do)… but after a few snaps I had to literally ask her to leave bc she was blocking all the monitors trying to get a good shot. 😂 that’s a Mamma for ya! Thank you Missy, in hindsight I’m so grateful you insisted on “just one more picture”.”

What do you think? Post a comment!

But that wasn’t all Mansi had to say about the incredible experience. Showing a picture of the monitors that were here view while sitting there in the director’s chair, she wrote a few words about how she was feeling about the experience.

Picture Perfect

“This picture is special. Here’s why: I took it right before I dove into my very first day ever directing. I’m immensely grateful for the opportunity to have dipped my toe into this field, especially having done so under the care of a fearless female (+fellow Italian!!!) mentor. Thank you to everyone who allowed me the privilege of observing & shadowing your work these last few months. I’m in awe of your Matrix world & honored to be among you. And also… I can’t wait for more!!!”

Check out the exciting photos below. Mansi received a lot of support in the comments section, including from Marci Miller (ex-Abigail) and Christie Clark (Carrie). Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
