CAST­ING COUPS

Soap Opera Digest - - ROUNDUP -

At the Day of DAYS event, Melissa Reeves (Jen­nifer) heard a re­cur­ring theme in fans’ com­ments. “Of course they love that Matt’s [Ash­ford, Jack] com­ing back,” she shared. “Some­how they know a lot but they don’t know de­tails. They’re super-ex­cited about that. Jack and Jen­nifer have a strong tie to his­tory. We have our own THIS IS US! We have flash­backs that are re­ally us and you can build a story around it. They can’t wait to have him on-screen and see what the writ­ers have for us.” The ac­tress also talked about Marci Miller’s exit as Abi­gail and Kate Mansi’s re­turn to the role. “How blessed can I be to get Kate and Marci play­ing my daugh­ters?” she mar­veled. “Marci is like our lit­tle movie star. I look in her eyes and I lit­er­ally can see her soul. She’s the most beau­ti­ful ac­tress, and there’s some­thing so ethe­real about her and so raw emo­tion­ally, and I was like, ‘Wow, that was so fun.’ And then I get my sweet lit­tle Katie back, who’s like my daugh­ter. She and [Reeves’s real-life daugh­ter] Emily were, like, sep­a­rated at birth. She’s got this fierce stance and they’re both so dif­fer­ent but both so great and so I was like, ‘Oh, I hate that Marci’s gone, but we get Katie.’ They’re both so spe­cial.”

Melissa is as ex­cited as the fans to wel­come Matt back into the DAYS fold.
