Actress Devon Martinez, the daughter of Days of our Lives star A Martinez (Eduardo), is coming to Genoa City in the role of Shawn Taylor, a young pregnant woman who is looking for the ideal parents to adopt her child. ”
And it looks like Shawn is considering Sage (Kelly Sullivan) and Nick (Joshua Morrow) as possible parents to her unborn child. Martinez, who is a recent graduate from the Yale School of Drama, will hit the airwaves on the March 1st episode of the CBS sudser.
In an interview with TV Insider, Devon previewed: “She’s considering Nick and Sage but she’s talking to other couples, as well, and still trying to make up her mind. She’s, like, ‘Who are these people? What is this town like? How is everyone connected?’ It’s been fun studying the back stories. Everyone, including Nick and Sage, has been through so much! But, despite their circumstances, what are their core values? It’s been fascinating to play a woman in Shawn’s position and getting to the heart of what really matters where you’re looking to give up your child.”
In terms of working with Joshua Morrow and Kelly Sullivan, Devon offered up: “They’re such great actors. I did my final callback audition with Josh and it made all the difference. I’m really honored to be in their company. And I’m really happy to be working with executive producer Jill Phelps. My dad has a great history with her.
