While fans of NBC’s Days of our Lives now know that Kate Mansi (Abigail) has confirmed her exit from the series, it looks like the casting search for her replacement is still on!
According to Soap Opera Digest, the original casting call for “Val” has resurfaced in the casting breakdowns. However the call does say, “The show is seeking very, very strong actors for the role, which is currently recurring with the possibility of going contract.” Leaving some to believe this may not be for Abigail.
The casting breakdown added: “Please do not resubmit actors already seen for Val Role in December.”
As a reminder, the character of “Val” is described as: 24 to 28-years-old and a gorgeous young professional. Val has already experienced great love and great loss in her young life which has left her strong spirit with a fragility she passionately protects. She has a determination to live and love as fearlessly as she can in the wake of all she has been through.
SOD also notes that Mansi will wrap up her run on-screen in May.
So, is this a casting call for Abby? If so, who would you suggest to play the part? Comment below!
