With the recent stirring of big things at Days of our Lives, the power that be here at 'Our Days' have made a bold decision: The blog will start anew, and probably sooner than originally planned. Why the sudden change? According to headscribe Keith Trickett, "it was time. There was so much to do work out before the cast would be right where I wanted it to be. There are lots of stories going on now that I'd like the chance to tell my way. And so, here we are."
What are some immediate changes that will be seen? Don't expect a facelift. Trickett seems pleased with where the canvas is now. The character of Jeremy Horton will be recast. Trevor Donavan was ill-fitted for the role, and so our casting department is hard at work finding a more appropriate actor for the role. Shelley Hennig is also out, but don't expect to say goodbye to Stephanie just yet. "We are currently wooing Shayna Rose back to the show. There is a new direction in mind for the character, where she would be allowed to showcase her musical talent on the show. We're hopeful."
For the immediate future, don't expect too many characters to come and go. "As Hogan has planned, the character Of Lauren, who was last seen back in December, will be adding a new element to the storyline with Claire's three parents." Top contenders for the role include Eden Reigel, Peyton List, and Aubrey Dollar. The DiMeras will start to be taken a lot more seriously with the sudden exits of Will Utay and Steve Blackwood. "Their history is unimportant in the grand scheme of things. Though they provided certain comic relief, the DiMera family is not a place to look for that. Much like Victor last fall [on the actual show], expect to see less campy behavior from this crime family.
It looks to be a fun, new start for 'Our Days'. Stay tuned for more!
