    I don’t think I have seen anything she is done but she is beautiful and will make a great Abby.

    AGREED. And, I also feel your disappointment. I hear you. All of you!!
    Besides Underwood, there are so many other actresses who could have definitely fit the bill.
    However, as is my nature, i’d like to give anyone a shot. Then, critique…LOL.

    I haven’t seen her in any other roles either, so I hope she will make a great Abigail, BUT, will anyone else notice the new Abbey has BLUE EYES???

    I am very disappointed they didn’t get Brittany Underwood. You’d think TPTB would want someone with daytime experience to take on this critical role. But, welcome and the very best of luck to Marci Miller.

    Just because you’ve got experience in daytime does not mean you are qualified for the part, and IMHO, Brittany is not experienced or qualified enough for the demand of Abigail Deveraux. I have a feeling Marci Miller is going to be great!

    Me too and she is working that vamp look.. She looks a bit like Elizabeth Hendickson Chloe on Y&R.. and more like a better replacement for Jen Lilley

    Marci Miller more than likely went through several screen tests before being chosen for the role. I am going to give her the benefit of the doubt until I see how she does.

    We’ll see. I was never a fan of Mansi in the role anyway. Nor am I a fan of the characters of Jennifer, Abigail, or JJ. Definitely willing to give Marci a chance.

    Kate Mansi has made her decision. She doesn’t want to be type cast. In Hollywood, for some reason, it’s very difficult for actors in daytime to get cast in films. There’s a hierarchy in the industry; first is film, second is mainstream television and in third place is daytime.

    She chose to vacate the role – to pursue other avenues. Whoever this new gal is she will have some big shoes to fill.

    Great another newbie, lol. Brittany Underwood ex Langston OLTL should be the new Abigail. Good luck to the new actress, because she will need it. Days is a big, mess right now.

    One small problem, Brittany Underwood was not considered.

    Reply

    Celia replied

    Lol, Susan. I don’t think anyone said Underwood was considered. But, many of us suggested she’d be perfect for the role. My personal preferences were, actually, the original Colleen on Y&R, Lyndsy Fonseca or Kelley Missal of OLTL (Dani).

    Never seen her work. Hope she can act. She’s got gorgeous blue eyes. Good luck to her.

    Right? She reminds me a little of a younger Sharon Case.

    I agree!

    With a dash of Mischa Barton from the O.C.

    Yes, yes, Timmmy. I can definitely see that.

    have to pray to the soap gods… on this

    ” I pray…. just pray… that she can ACT !

    I pray… just pray… that she has chemistry with Billy Flynn”

    Amen

    ie: couldn’t find any thing… to show… for her work… except for the indie preview “dog bowl”

    she films nice…

    I so want this to work….

    Billy Flynn is Days Leading Man

    I do not know what to think….from the pose/expression she looks like she would be a little bit villainy-maybe a Teressa replacement…but she is Abby…we will see this fall how she fits with Billy/Chad…if he decides to ever leave i think it would be too hard to replace him-he so owns that role now…jmho!!!

    I would love for Billy Flynn to leave. I have never liked him as Chad.

    She’s beautiful, but can she act? We don’t need another Ciara!

    Speaking of Ciara. I am not a fan of the Ciara/Chad storyline. I find it creepy. I’m sad to read the new Abigail won’t debut until the fall. I was hoping it would be soon so she could put Ciara in her place. I don’t think I can stomach seeing a long, drawn out romance emerge between Chad and Ciara. I’m not sure I will keep watching Days.

    Celia replied

    I know, Shell. Ciara is barely out of diapers… It seems like yesterday that she was what? Eight? LOL.
    I think it’s sick. Other than the fact that she’s still a kid, one would think that after such a traumatic ordeal such as rape, any intimacy would be repelling….like a leper’s touch. What are these writers thinking?

    nancy dillingham replied

    Yes, bad move re Chase and Ciara–W-A-Y too soon, anyway!

    nancy dillingham replied

    Oops, make that CHAD and Ciara–:)

    Carissa replied

    Yes, I so agree! Chad and Ciara story is ridiculous. There has been too many of those back when Abby first started and she thought she lived Austin. Abby and ejs affair, and the last one was jj and eve. We don’t need another one of those !!

    dmr replied

    I have said from day one, when TPTB recast cute little Chase and Ciara, that
    nu-Ciara did not have the skillset for this role. Given the current storyline, and the seriousness of the topic, I think its even more apparent. There was no reason to recast the smaller generation of kids. The teenage scene is not cutting it for this (past) viewer and I no longer DVR the show. The acting is awful and the storylines are beyond dreadful.

    I agree, I can no longer support and defend Days anymore. And my favorite actors keep leaving it too and they only get vets back for one or a few episodes now because they can’t afford it.

    She is pretty, but can she act? Let’s give her a chance. If she fails, I can play the role of Abigail. I will put on a wig, high heels and make up lol. I am very sexy, with a smooth body, very passable as a woman. I am Italian and do drag shows part time. I have full lips, with a nice smile. Call me Days, if you need me .

    It is hard to judge by just a photo— she looks a bit too old for the role and too exotic looking to be the girl next door type that Abby was, but I am willingly to give her a shot. I don’t care if she doesn’t have daytime experience because daytime is getting a bit incestuous with the same big names hopping from one show to the next, so I am glad to see some new blood come onto the scene, yet will reserve final judgement once I see her in the role.

    After Thursday’s episode, I do not think Ciara and Chad will have a romance. She mighty go fatal attraction on him!!! But- hey, that’s what he gets for moving the teenager in the house at break neck speed. Can you tell I am disappointed in that story?
    Anyway!! I am excited! She appears cute and beautiful. Her reel shows talent. It was a great run with mansi but I say welcome to the crazy world of Salem miss Miller. They obviously took their sweet time with the casting so I think she and mr. Flynn will be magic together.

    well it took the casting people a long time to find her… This will say a lot about them if she is the right actress. Glad they did not rush it and waited for the right one. Time will tell. .lots of pressure on these folks who hired her..

    I am very disappointed, I love days but Kate mansi made Abby and is Abby the character won’t be the same without her , the shoes of Abby cannot be filled by anyone but Kate mansi! If she can’t play it, Abby’s character would be better off getting killed off! First ej, Sami , and now Abby . I feel like this could ruin days of our lives forever! ☹️
