This week, Days of our Lives fans learned just who will be the replacement for Kate Mansi in the central role of Abigail Deveraux DiMera. After an exhaustive search, DAYS chose actress Marci Miller to inherit the role from Mansi and to carry the torch. Although Kate ended her run at the end of last December, on-screen viewers will see her departure on the June 24th episode of the NBC sudser.
Miller took to her Instagram account to share publicly her first sentiments on becoming the new Abigail, where she acknowledged she is taking over the role from a very popular performer.
Marci expressed: “So grateful for your LOVE and PATIENCE as I take this very big, very scary, and very exciting step! Kate Mansi has laid a beautiful foundation that any actor in their right mind would be equally thrilled and terrified to step into! Rooting for her ALL THE WAY as she winds down in these next few weeks on DOOL. Truly a joy to get to be a part of this family. Much love XO”
Chabby fans are awaiting to see just how Miller will be on-screen with Billy Flynn (Chad)! Will their chemistry spark?
