I would hope Will was versatile. :)

if they need someone to play Paul....I'm available. 

 

What the Kassie DePaiva... fall back, sir. 😋

 

You know, if y'all are craving sexy gay guys, there are MUCH better options than Days of Our Lives. I've never really been excited by ANY romantic soap couple, *couples* aren't my thing (unless we're talking Viki and Dorian), so I'm used to being bored.

I was thinking the same thing and was going to post it. I could appear in church right beside Chandler Massey and Will says.....Paul you have a hair out of place...here is a mirror and a comb......I look at myself in the mirror and presto!

I read this too fast and thought Ron was pairing up Eve and Will. 

 

Don't put anything past that man, Carl!

OLTL needed to BURN for thinking they could ever recast Blair with a non-Asian!  Talk about a whitewash!

Ha...I could pass for one :) 

 

IDC if you could pass for Robert Redford.  Paul was Asian, played by someone with Asian heritage.  It's bad enough Asians get even less representation than African-Americans on soaps.  Let's not even joke about taking away one of the few opportunities they have.

Heard a rumor that 

  Hide contents

Stefan DIES

Robin has already said that if Days calls and Sorel doesnt want to return, Strasser will be more than happy to

 

I'm sure this has been posted but I've been away and catching up.

 

And yep Strasser seemed to have enjoyed herself and is more than willing to return. If Louise Sorel is done then I'm happy with Robin. Of course if OLTL is rebooted ... (I can't stand that Burke woman constantly teasing it)

 

 

Barash was spotted on set (after just freshly shaving). Could have just been filming for the DOOL app, others have come back and done it, but I think he's already back. So that would be around May Sweeps 2020 ... Lord. I mean, Ron could easily write it that Vivian or someone arranged for a different heart ...

She is playing another character.  She isn't Vivian. Casting Robin as Vivian was a bad mistake.

I'm not feeling RS as Vivian. Vivian's scenes with the bore, the goon and the serial killer. Where painful too watch. Days does such a bad job redressing Jarlena's townhouse.   nx8v8p.gif

I adore Robin Strasser, but I don't think Vivian is a right fit. I don't even know why I'm compelled to post this, "If you don't have anything nice..." I'm not trying to be unkind. But if Louise is unavailable the next go-round, I hope Marj Dusay gets another stab at it.

Sorel could play Vivian as over the top yet still be scary.   StrasseR isn't able to do so.

 

I wish Ron wouldn't insist on hiring his friends..he's a male JFP's.  Eve and now Vivian are played by good actresses that don't fit the parts.

I thought I was the only one that wasn’t feeling Strasser. I am getting such much backlash in a Facebook group for not liking this recast. “She is THE Robin Strasser!” “She played Dorian Lord for years!!” Umm ok, Dorian was awful in OLTL latter years. 😂😂

 

On 9/9/2019 at 3:52 AM, AbcNbc247 said:

Because she's playing her like Dorian in OLTL's final years. I'm not feeling her either. It's not the first time an iconic soap actor has been hired as a recast only to turn the character they're playing now into the character that they previously played and it definitely won't be the last. 

 

If Ron or Ken wanted her on Days, they should've just created another web series and called it "Dorian Lord in Salem"

And she's Louise's friend. It was the right move to have Robin take over. If Louise can't or won't, why should Vivian be forgotten? We have tons of soap vets out of work. I'm all for this.

 

But yes, Louise is iconic as Vivian. No one can truly replace her just like no one can truly replace Eileen as Kristen, but I'll be damned if Stacy isn't doing a hell of a job. Kristen's a bit more psycho and crazy than I'd like, but she's doing a good job. I much prefer her Susan, though.

 

I really think some of you go out of your way to find things to bitch about.

When the best thing I can say is, "RS has a better wig on," you know the s**t is dull.

 

I've dove back into DAYS for the mask reveal and to see how RS fares as Vivian. I am surprised at how bad Robin is, how un-Vivian she is, how badly she's being lit and how tragic those shake 'n' go wigs are. 

 

Louise Sorel apparently said on her Facebook page that she was given 1 week's notice to come to Los Angeles to shoot and that she couldn't make it work, which is almost like they didn't want her to film...

Ouch, 1 week notice? Seems fishy, I agree they maybe didn't want her. (Though, to be fair, there seemed to be a quick shift around this time in filming so maybe it really was quickly thrown together? I know some things were scrapped). At least Louise was called and she didn't necessarily balk at returning (right?) so there's that ... has she said anything about her friend Robin as the recast?

 

I'm OK with Robin as Vivian (and trust me, I ADORE Sorel as Vivian, I'd always want her back, hands down but I adore Strasser too and it kind of is what it is at this point I guess). She seems a bit shaky and slightly rusty though.

 

Guess I'm just glad to see Strasser so maybe I'm being less critical but I don't really agree with all the negativity surrounding her performances. She's not going to parody Louise's Vivian so she's doing her take. Whether some like that take on it ... or not ... lol

For sure - I don't begrudge Strasser the work. I think she was great for much of her OLTL run, and when she dabbled in primetime I think she was really good...but I think she's a bad fit for Vivian. The character is so connected to Louise Sorel that I think recasting is a bad idea, especially when it seems as if DAYS (or just Ron...) wanted to shut her out by making a return impossible. This recast reminds me of when Beverly Todd stepped in for Tanya Boyd as Celeste - the essence of the character disappeared in someone else's hands.
