Find out if any of your favorite performers from yesteryear are returning to the shows you follow, or if any new actors or actresses have been cast in contract, recurring or day player roles. Here’s the latest casting news from all the soaps.

Days of Our Lives

Big news for Days of Our Lives fans. Victoria Konefal returns as Ciara Brady Weston on Thursday, January 28 and, this time, she’s alive. The character last appeared as a ghost to Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) last December, after being “killed off” the soap in October 2020.

Jason Downs is joining the cast as Rhodes. The mysterious character will be connected to Ciara’s disappearance. Downs’ credits include guest spots on NCIS: New Orleans and NCIS: Los Angeles, and he had a one-day stint as a Dutch concierge on The Bold and the Beautiful in 2014.

General Hospital

Two popular General Hospital veterans are slated to make appearances, this week. Jacklyn Zeman will pop up as Bobbie Spencer in scenes with her TV daughter, Laura Wright’s Carly Corinthos.

Lynn Herring is also back as Lucy Coe on Friday, January 29. She’ll also interact with Wright’s Carly.

Joyce Guy and Rif Hutton have been playing Phyllis and Lenny Caulfield, the couple helping Sonny (Maurice Benard) on General Hospital. Guy was previously on the soap in 2020 when her character was revealed as Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) former caretaker at Creighton Clark. Her other soap stints include the role of Mrs. Moreau on Sunset Beach and Mrs. McTavish on Days of Our Lives.

That was Anthony Molinari playing Walter, the robber who tried to rob Lenny’s bar but was foiled by Sonny on GH. Please note that air dates may be subject to change.
