During her five-year stint on Days of Our Lives, Kate Mansi had some unforgettable and incredible moments as Abigail.
And she has a Daytime Emmy to show for it, having won the Outstanding Supporting Actress award in 2017. With Mansi heading back to the soap to replace Marci Miller, who’s opted to leave the show, here’s a look back at her most memorable Abigail moments.
A crush turned into an obsession, when Abigail began working as Austin’s (Patrick Muldoon) assistant at Salem U. When Austin returned to his office drunk one night after learning his wife Carrie (Christie Clark) had betrayed him, Abigail comforted him with a few kisses.
The next morning, she led him to believe they’d had sex. She perpetuated the lie for weeks, before admitting she’d made the whole thing up.

Baby Daddy Miracle
When Thomas took unexpectedly ill, Abigail discovered Chad was her child’s father. She summoned him to the hospital to reveal the happy news, placing the baby boy into his arms.
Chad, who had been brainwashed by Andre to forget his feelings for Abigail, remembered everything and promised he’d always be there for her and their son.
Wedding of the Year
Abigail and Chad exchanged wedding vows at the DiMera mansion. “You’re my hero,” said Abigail. “You are my soulmate, and you’re my best friend, and you’re my true love. I’m so honored to spend the rest of my life with you as my husband, and me as your wife.”
