Tamara Braun Returns to Days, Natalia Livingston Exiting

 Tamara Braun will return to Days of Our Lives this spring, but not in her Emmy winning role of Ava Vitali. She will take over the role of Taylor Raines which is currently being played by Natalia Livingston.

What is the reason for this sudden change?  Days co-executive producer, Gary Tomlin said that the character of Taylor will be taken in a new direction.

Personally, I think they should keep Natalia as Taylor and bring Tamara back as Ava.

Hot on the heels of Mark Hapka (Nathan) being let go from Days of Our Lives, come the news that Shelley Hennig (Stephanie) and Jay Kenneth Johnson (Philip) have both decided  to leave the show in the next few weeks.

“It just feels right,” Hennig told Soap Opera Digest of her decision to leave. “I have been preparing for this for awhile, so I have said my mental good-byes. I will miss the faces I see here every day, but everybody has been really encouraging and has embraced my decision.”

Frances Reid Has Passed Away

It is with a sad heart, that I have to report that Days of Our Lives star, Frances Reid has passed away yesterday at the age of 95.

Reid had a very accomplished career that consist of movies, theater, broadway, but  it was her role as Alice Horton that most people will remember her. She originated the role in 1965.

My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and to her co-workers at Days of Our Lives.
