DAYS: Head writer Dena Higley's daughter guests on 12/30

Recommended Posts

"Days of Our Lives" head writer Dena Higley's 19-year-old daughter, Jensen Higley, makes her second appearance on "Days" on Wednesday, December 30. She appears as Detective McCarthy, the woman who gives Troy back his cell phone at the Java Cafe. She previously appeared on "Days" on August 4, 2008 as Susie, one of Melanie's friends.

In other news, Mark Hapka (Nathan) mentions in a Soap Opera Weekly interview this week that he signed a 4-year contract. Since Galen Gering (Rafe) and Eric Martsolf (Brady) had signed 4-year contracts late last year, it seems NBC has joined in ABC's practice of signing newbies to 4-year deals, rather than the standard 3-year deal which "Days" has used since the 1980s. Back in the 1970s, the standard deal was for 7 years! This contract of course only protects "Days", and not the actor. Actors can still be released after each 13-week cycle in their contract. But with this 4-year deal news, it means most likely that Lindsay Hartley (Arianna), Taylor Spreitler (Mia), Casey Deidrick (Chad), Gabriela Rodriguez (Gabi), and Chandler Massey (Will) are all contracted to the show into 2013, and not 2012 as previously thought.
