If you think the Johnsons have been missing a piece of the puzzle of late, Days of Our Lives must have been thinking the same.
Sure, they are about to add a new member now that young Joey (James Lastovic) seems primed to become a papa, but Stephanie Johnson has been conspicuously absent during the last year. Her dad returned to Salem, her parents reunited and then broke up once again, and her mother even had brain surgery, but somehow Stephanie has remained a ghost.
Well, not anymore. According to the Jason 47 DAYS Website, Shelly Hennig is set to return as Steve (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla’s (Mary Beth Evans) prodigal daughter in January, just in time for her parents’ wedding.
No word on whether the wedding will go off without a hitch, but at least their daughter will be there for the occasion.
Hennig was last seen in Salem in 2011, after playing Stephanie since 2007. She was both a fan favorite and a Daytime Emmy nominee, and her face will be welcome return to the DAYS canvas.
