Days of our Lives this morning released an official statement welcoming Sarah Brown to the cast and revealed who she will be playing in Salem!  The show confirms that Brown will play Madison James, a powerful and seductive CEO who looks to take on, in  one way or another, Sami, Kate, Brady, and Victor.

Sarah stated about her new role: ”Days of our Lives is one of television’s historic gems. I’m excited to join such a talented cast as well as to play such a strong yet feminine character that will inspire our female viewer.”  The three time Daytime Emmy winner, joins former cast members Matthew Ashford, Christie Clark, and Patrick Muldoon, who are returning to the show, in celebrating its 46th season on the air.

Greg Meng,  DAYS Co-Executive Producer, commented, “We are thrilled to have Sarah join our family at ‘Days.’  We needed a strong actress who can mold this character and go toe-to-toe with other strong actresses such as Alison Sweeney and Lauren Koslow. Madison defines a new femininity, displaying confidence, savvy, and elegance.”

This could be good soapers, don’t you think? Let us know your thoughts and stay tuned!

    Very Excited! Sarah Brown is an awesome actress! Can’t wait for her to go toe to toe with Alison Sweeney!


  3. Monica says:

    Love Sarah Brown, but I think they could’ve just kept Crystal Chappell, and wrote some good stuff for her!!


  4. Days fan says:

    They should also bring back martha madison as belle, and jason cook as shawn. Bryan D as lucas please. As well as faye Nicole mom, I adored abe and faye.
    Send rafe packing. It seem so weird that patrick muldoon is back. I have to be honest. patrick to me doesn’t respect the soap genre, he left because he got a better offer and I have a strong feeling his time at days is not perment. Pat will probably leave again onced something better comes along again!!!. Austin peck and Christie clark did a great job. And I absolute detested Horgan Sheffer after he decided to write them off. I really feel Caustin was coming in to their own. I love Austin peck’s Austin sentimental , sweet, caring, patrick Austin was a bad boy a rebel with out a cause . I wish the writers would bring them both back. Austin and patrick both added something really special to the role. Dear writers just because other fanbases complained about Peck’s version doesn’t mean they did not watch or stop watching. In fact Both christie Clark, and Austin peck contributed to the ratings. Also I wish they bring back the original brady. His acting and chemistry is out of this world plus he looks like john and marelna.

    Quote “plus he looks like john and marelna”, Kyle Lowder was Brady from 2000 – 2005. But I’m not sure why Kyle or Eric should look like Marlena. Brady’s mother is Isabella Toscano Black, not Marlena. But I did love Kyle as Brady also, I’m just not sure he could pull of the dark side of Brady we are see now from Eric.

    Not excited. I’ve never enjoyed SJB, and I hate it when soaps bring in other “name” soap stars and make them brand-new characters instead of connecting them to core families. This role should have been Sarah Horton.


  6. Michael Jenkins says:

    She looks a lot like Tamara, she is a good actress.


    Lauren replied

    Funny you say that b/c Sarah originated Carly on GH and Tamara took over the role which is now played by Laura Wright.


  7. Emily says:

    Excited to see what my favourite soap has in store for this wonderfully talented actress!


  8. lumi says:

    I hope she and Brady gets together,
    EJ and Nicole get back together
    Rafe can go away,but if not He and Sophia
    and Lucas and Sami and 4 kids as THE NEW HORTON FAMILY 2011 and till the end of DAYS.


  9. I says:

    So exciting!! I love EJ – Did you hear about this really exciting contest to meet James Scott and Joseph Mascolo on the Days set and to appear with them in Soap Opera Digest? Check it out at

    I think it would be great to finally have Nicole/Brady/ and now Madison story! Nicole & Brady have been need of new story and direction for a long while! It’s about time Nicole & Brady got a story and someone to tackle. It’s been reported that Madison will set her sights on Brady. Which means that you know Nicole is not going to like that one bit!

    Nicole/Brady/Madison story makes great sense and something new and fresh for the characters of Brady and for Nicole, and the right placement and direction for them together!


  11. Angela says:

    Days better get it right, because Sami can only be her old Sami self with Lucas there to cheer her on. Lucas needs to be added to this storyline!


  12. Msmith says:

    No offense well actually a lot of offense! So they let go of a phenomenal two time emmy winning out of this world talented actress Crystal Chappell ,and turn around and hire Sarah brown? They had so much potential with Bo and Carly, Jenn and Carly or even Daniel and Carly. Im extremely disappointed and DOOL has just taken what little interest I had in watching the show and chucked it out the window! Ill finish watching CC storyline and shut DOOL off permanently! Onward and up ward to Venice and the Grove!


  13. Gmbenet says:

    The storyline with Madison James sounds like it is going to be good. Looking forward to it, especially if she takes on Kate and Victor. It will be fun to see someone take them down a notch or two!


  14. smfouts says:

    I think it’s a good hire. We’ll miss carly,vivian etc. but who knows they may be brought back later. i’ve heard rumors that chloe may return late 2011,early 2012. As far as the current storylines the writers are tying up loose ends to relaunch the show. Let’s give them a chance before we judge them. More vets would be nice. and hey who knows if the ratings go up and stay up we may all get our wishes or a days spin off??????
