Kassie DePaiva’s name has been in the headlines on many soap sites over the last few days, after Serial Scoop posted an item that the fan favorite actress was leaving Days of our Lives, ending her run as Eve Donovan.
The actress who previously played Blair Cramer on One Life to Live for more than 20 years, and on General Hospital for a stint, as well as Guiding Light’s Chelsea Reardon, took over the role of the troubled and vengeful Eve on-screen back in June of 2014. Then DAYS head writing regime of Gary Tomlin and Christopher Whitesell chose DePaiva to be the recast in the role, originally played by Charlotte Ross back in the late 80′s into the early 90′s.
At this time both DePaiva and DAYS had not confirmed her exit from the soap about to turn 50 years old in November. Sadly, Kassie was finally given some meaty material to play with the murder of her on-screen daughter Paige Larson (True O’Brien) as Eve began her grieving process. Things are also about to perk up for DePaiva on-screen with the arrival next week of Eduardo played by A Martinez, who will play Eve’s ex.
DePaiva’s departure has not been confirmed by the NBC soap opera. Nor has a time frame been given as to when to expect her exit on screen, but from the looks of it, since DAYS tapes six months in advance, she would be airing into the new year.
Due to On-Air On-Soaps long-standing relationship with the actress, you can be sure that when, and if the time is right, and the opportunity presents itself, we will pass along additional details.
So, what do you think of a DePaiva exit? What do you think about all the recently posted exits from DAYS? Are the changes being made for the better, or for the worse? Was it the right move by the powers-that-be to get rid of Kassie, just as her on-air story was getting good? Share your thoughts below!
