Now this news may come as a surprise to many, but the actress who has given the outstanding Performance of 2013 in soaps has apparently wrapped her stint on July 16th!
We are, of course, talking about Eileen Davidson who made a triumphant return to Days of our Lives in the role of Kristen Blake DiMera this past year!
According to an exclusive post from Soap Opera Digest this evening, Days of our Lives executive producer, Ken Corday related the situation to be, “The Kristen story wrap-up is just fantastic; she was just glorious. The official word there is that Eileen Davidson is leaving the show to take some time out with her family. Will she come back? We’ll see. But she’s not going to another show. I am thankful for all she’s brought to us. It was the first shot in the arm we needed. A big shot in the arm.”
Meanwhile, Eileen took to Twitter a while ago to address the outpouring of love, shock, and support from her legions of fans and followers clarifying the situation by stating, “You’re all so awesome! I didn’t get fired. My family is fine. Thanks for your love and support! xoxoxo”
Davidson will continue to air on the NBC soap through the end of the year since DAYS tapes so far in advance. After a 14 year absence from the show Eileen’s stint was nothing but remarkable and made DAYS must-see TV once again!
So DAYS fans, what do you think of the news that Eileen wrapped a few weeks ago her time in Salem? Do you hope she will come back soon? Do you think its just a contract situation? Do you want Eileen to return to Y&R? Share your thoughts on this summer soap shocker!
