Days of our Lives Mary Beth Evans (Kayla) and James Reynolds (Abe) chat with Michael Fairman at Day of DAYS 2013! Mary Beth shares how she felt playing the pivotal scenes where JJ learns that his father Jack raped Kayla, and she confessed it to him. James and Mary Beth discuss how DAYS seems to be teasing a potential romance between Abe and Kayla. Will it happen? Plus, the duo weigh-in on still being part of the canvas of the NBC soap after all of these years.

    Mary Beth is such a sweetheart!!! Like both of them ans would like to see their characters have a relationship… go KABE!!!


    Buttercup replied

    They’re fantastic on screen together. But I just want to see more of their characters, romance or no. I get that they’re not leading characters at the moment, but throw them a bone!


  2. Kris says:

    I love Mary Beth! Thank you SO much for this interview. I don’t know about a romantic relationship between Abe and Kayla, because when I watch them, I only think “friends”, but I DO want her to have a life, and I DO want her to have a new relationship. I was just thinking along the lines of a new character for her. Maybe an actor who recurs, because she’s a recurring character. That way, the relationship would develop slowly, and kind of take Kayla by surprise.


  3. Queenie says:

    I adore Mary Beth, she is a terrific actor and would love to see her on screen more. If the only way we will get her is with Abe, then I guess I take a positive attitude and be content. But honestly, I’d rather see her with someone in her age range and more exciting.


  4. Jane says:

    Kayla and Abe have a great FRIENDSHIP. There is no other vibe there and to do so would be silly. Kayla needs a partner who tests her, engages her, puzzles her and brings out the tiger within. Abe is a comfy pair of slippers. A pairing would be silly and not true to who Kayla is.


    Kat replied

    ITA Jane! I love Mary Beth and Kayla, but do not see any romantic spark with her and Abe. I do love their friendship though. It’s organic and goes back to years ago.

    I do want to see more of Mary Beth/Kayla though. I’d like to see her with Joey and hear about her life instead of her always being there to support everyone else. Those Salemites are acting very self centered in not even asking her how she’s doing once in awhile! LOL

    Lastly, Mary Beth is awesome at comedy! Give her some more fun scripts! Those book club scenes were hilarious and she was definitely a standout!


  5. Cees says:

    Gotta say no to ‘Kabe’. I’m definitely not feeling any vibes between them other than that of a long term friendship. I would love to see Kayla get involved with someone ‘iffy’ and Abe take on the role of the ‘protective brother’ type. Would love to have more Mary Beth on my screen!


  6. MLD says:

    I would love to see more of Mary Beth as Kayla, and I would like to see her in a relationship. But please, no Kabe! If they go down that road with her, I hope it’s someone new and exciting. Or someone completely unexpected. Not just them tying up two loose ends.


  7. Kris says:

    It’s an interesting debate. I do think Kayla should move forward in her life. I think she deserves happiness. I’d like to see her begin to put herself out there and try a date. That’s a struggle a lot of newly single women face, and it would be identifiable for many. Show Kayla’s quandary. Should she or shouldn’t she? What does SHE think? I’ve always been a little surprised no one has set her up yet. She’s been on her own for a couple of years now. Why do none of her friends consider it a mission to set her up with the perfect guy? And even if he’s very far from perfect, I’d love to see her react to that. Mary Beth has the ability to do comedy. She showed that in her book club scenes. Let her react to a date that’s so far from perfect.

    It would be fun!

    Kabe forever ! Do it Days !
    Both need a story and both actors want it therefore do it !
    As for Abe not being ‘exiting’ enough..maybe Kayla can bring some fire in him..who knows..writing can improve things like that a lot.
    As for the bookclub scenes, Kayla was certainly the stand out in it..imho Mary-Beth was the only one believable as someone who is stoned..and i know what i am talking about but stone bookclub can’t happen everyday guys ! It would not be believable and it would get boring after a while. Kayla just need some exiting story and Abe too by the way !

    Great interview Michael! The #KABE story would be interesting. I personally would love to see Stephen Nichols comeback and work things out with Kayla. Love those two together.
