As Alison Sweeney is set to depart the NBC soap opera this year after more than two decades as Sami Brady, the fan favorite posted a special message on her facebook page which relates to the current story, where it looks as if Sami may discover that the man she is about to marry, EJ DiMera (James Scott) has been having an affair with Abigail Deveraux (Kate Mansi)!
From this week’s promo of DAYS: A mysterious envelope shows up at the DiMera mansion that Sami gets her hands on which has incriminating evidence of EJ and Abby in the throes of passion. So is it what happens next that will be one of the best episodes for Sweeney of all-time? Well, according to this post below, it surely is!
Alison: “I am so proud of the episode airing on Monday, April 21st. We worked so hard on it, and everyone gave their all. I hope you watch. Thinking back on all the pivotal episodes I’ve been blessed to be a part of at Days of our Lives, this without question stands out at the top. And believe me, as we were shooting it everyone was thinking about YOUR reactions. So … I can’t wait to read your thoughts after!! XOXO”
In addition, if you picked up the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Sweeney also mentioned the episode and elaborated a little more saying: “In fact, we were in the fan event last November right when we shot those scenes, like giddy, practically from the excitement and the buildup it created in that particular episode. We did a read-through with the director and I am going to say that we dedicated probably at least nine hours or more of rehearsal time toward them.”
If you recall, On-Air On-Soaps had chatted with James and Alison in a very fun interview during that time at the Days of DAYS 2013, which happened right around the shooting of those scenes.
