Eileen Davidson is returning to Days of Our Lives (DOOL), and while we know roughly when (November) she’s due to appear in Salem, we don’t know who she’ll be playing.
Soap Hub asked DAYS fans who they want to see the Emmy winner portray, and the answers were varied — just like the characters Davidson brings to life!
Mean, Mean, Mean!
An overwhelming majority, 74%, want Eileen Davidson back as Kristen, even though the character supposedly fell to her “death” during a confrontation with Marlena (Deidre Hall).
Kristen most certainly won this poll because she’s the most wicked of Davidson’s DAYS alter-egos.
Kristen was relentless in her pursuit of John (Drake Hogestyn), Marlena’s true love. Perhaps her most wicked act was to callously throw in Marlena’s face that her affair with John caused Roman to leave town, which resulted in his (presumed) death.
Bank(s) on It!
Susan Banks, the less-than-polished free-spirit, whom Davidson also plays, came in second with 19%. If there’s anyone Kristen hates more than Marlena, it’s Susan. As Kristen’s presumed dead, it’s most likely we’ll see Susan first when Davidson’s shows start airing.
Sister Mary Moira, another of the Banks quads, also got some votes, earning 4%. The no-nonsense nun would be fun to see, especially if Susan needs some aid in going up against Kristen.
Also, getting a few votes is Penelope Kent — it’d be a neat trick if Peneople were to pop up agains since A) she’s dead and B) she seemed to have been created only to be a red herring in Kristen’s “death” during her first time in Salem.
Not many of you are wanting to see Thomas, the male Banks sibling (also played by Davidson), back on the scene. But it would be great to see him again just to see how many characters Davidson could squeeze into one show.
One thing’s for sure, we know head writer Ron Carlivati, who did such masterful work on General Hospital, is going to have a field day with all of Davidson’s DAYS alter-egos!
