31 May 18th, 2016 Someone’s Going To Prison On DAYS As Soap Is Casting Tough Inmate Named Sheila!

Courtesy/NBC

Another Salem resident is going to the slammer.  Who will end up behind bars?  That is the tease that is circulating on Wednesday after Soap Opera Digest revealed some casting news from NBC’s Days of our Lives.

The series is seeking an actress of any ethnicity between the ages of 30-55 to play a tough inmate named Sheila.  The role will tape in early June.

Given the criminals that inhabit the town, or good people driven to do bad things for good reasons … yeah, we are speaking about you, Hope Williams Brady Jennings (Kristian Alfonso)!

Hope shot and killed Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo).  So it would seem that she is the most obvious choice for some jail time, or is another female?  DAYS tapes far in advance so we won’t see this story till closer to fall, so much could play out by then.

Who would you suggest should play the part of Sheila, the tough inmate?  Anyone from daytime, primetime or web series that fits the bill?  Share your suggestion in the comment section below and then let us know, which character do you think is headed for some prison time on DAYS?

    I thought they were changing their taping schedule to just 2-3 weeks out, am I wrong?

    No, Jake—you’re right. I was frustrated with the amount of time we would get teased about something that was going to happen only to read the tagline at the bottom that the storyline wouldn’t start being seen on our screens for several months. I read the same thing you did so I was glad to see things would speed up but from what I can tell with this article, it doesn’t look like they’ve gotten around to doing it yet.

    They shut down for about a month. But because they were out nearly six months, they’re still out about five months. And with no shows airing for two weeks during the Summer Olympics, they could be back to 5 1/2 months out by the end of the year.

    When I saw “Sheila”, I only thought of one person.

    For the tough inmate Sleila I would like to see one of two people play that role.
    Mariska Hargitay or Kelli Giddish.

    I am going to say I think it will be Kate Roberts.

    We wish it was Kate Roberts, but they wouldn’t give her all that airtime and attention. It will be for Hope (cause God forbid she ever on the back burner!!!) or Jennifer. Poor Kate has to always be on the park bench or the town square.

    (YAWN) This show has gotten extremely and I mean EXTREMELY boring – Aiden coming back (although I like the actor well enough) was so idiotic and so done to death, how many “evil twins” can there be in this town with 3 sets? Joey being on the run with this stupid girl is ridiculous – and this flu bug that has hit the town is not that compelling a storyline. Brother, the writers really need to get on the stick – most of the actors are just fine, it’s really not the actor’s fault, it’s the writing that isn’t plausible.

    It could also be a prison inmate who is being released from prison, looking for some revenge. We already met that creepy prison guard who said he knew Gabi while she was in jail. As I recall, he claimed to have protected her while she was in the slammer. “Sheila” could be someone Gabi had a problem with who’s now getting out. The show did something similar with ex-con, Nick Fallon, when his rapist, Jensen, was released.
