The only few ones that cant be recast are Susan Flannery, (Stephanie)

Suzanne Rogers, (Maggie), Alison Sweeney (Sami) and Matthew Ashford (Jack), and Judi Evans (Adrienne/Bonnie)

But i must say Theresa Blake as Gloria and Deidre Hall as Marlena i think are two that could absolutely could be recast. Theresa i have forgotten, and Deidre what can one say, they can easily hire another woman in the same age, looking as a blonde doll like, almost have no lines, and smiling the phoniest smiles......................

i dont think that anyone is unrecastable (is that word? lol)

however there are a few who shouldnt be recasted just due to fan love. mostly the vest on all the shows.

I love Alison Sweeney, but she can be replaced. Someone else can play sami, and i could even see a few actress pulling it off. .

OK, I totally disagree with the idea that either Sami or Marlena could ever be recast. Deidre Hall IS Marlena Evans. that's why they have Starring Deidre Hall in the credits. And as for Alison Sweeny as Sami? Alison Sweeney is now the face of days for better or worse so there is no way after 15 years that Sami could be recast.

thankfully I don't think I'll ever have to worry about DOOL trying recast them.

See, I love Ali Sweeney. she is the ONLY reason i have been watching days this long. But just because shes been in the role for 15+ years doesnt mean someone else cant take it on and do just as good as her.

And im sorry, but alot of people could play Marlena. Fans wouldnt buy it because Dee Hall is marlena and all. But its really not some complicated role that only she can do. Shes just knowen for the role.

There are char's on soaps that shouldnt be recasted because someone has been in the role for xx amount of years and they just.. own it yes. Susan Lucci is erica kane. KZ is Reva Shayne. DH is Marlena Evans. However, its not so much due to there amazing acting skills as it is to the fact they have just been doing it for xx years.

I disagree that all roles are recastable. Not true at all.

Anyways these are the ones I feel are NOT recastable because of the mark the actors have made on the characters:

Erica Kane-Susan Lucci

Adam/Stuart Chandler-David Canary

Jackson Montgomery-Walt Willey

Zach Slater-Thorsten Kaye

Kendall Hart Slater-Alicia Minshew

Myrtle Fargate-Eileen Herlie

Opal Courtland-Jill Larson

Palmer Courtland-James Mitchell

Carly Tenney-Maura West

Jack Snyder-Michael Park

Henry Coleman-Trent Dawson

Margo Hughes-Ellen Dolan

Tom Hughes-Scott Holmes

Nancy Hughes-Helen Wagner

Generally, vets should never be fired and/or replaced. NEVER! Have some respect, studios!

I thought they never should have recast Roger Howarth's Todd. Still think they shouldn't have. They could have kept TsJ as Walker Laurence IMO.

I think Vanessa Marcil's Brenda is unrecastable.

I always felt Sarah Brown's Carly was unrecastable. I think LW is a good actress but the character is so different at this point, IMO, from SB's Carly.

I disagree, Minshew to me has never put any kind of mark on that character like say Sarah Michelle Gellar did. She is completely replaceable. Same goes for Hayley, she hasn't been on in several years and a new talented actress could take over the role easily, the same goes for the character of Gloria Marsh, but I highly doubt AMC will ever bring back those 2 characters. Now Eden Riegel & Bianca I would say are "untouchable."
