Big news out today from TV Guide on how Crystal Chappell’s character of Dr. Carly Manning will get through her drug dependency, and possibly usher out Chappell from the series, now that a few weeks ago Days of our Lives dropped Chappell when her contract expires in August.
First comes the news that daytime favorite from All My Children and Santa Barbara, Sydney Penny has been cast to play Dr. Norman, who will work with Carly to overcome her drug addiction at the rehab center. And then DAYS had added Cody Longo (the former star of Make It or Break It) to the cast as Nicholas Alamain, Carly’s son!
Acording to TVG, “After mother and son are reunited and Carly seems to be on the mend, look for Chappell — who has been fired along with several other Days stars — to be ushered off the series.”
Look for Penny, to start airing on Days August 30. So it would seem from this that Chappell will be seen on DAYS at least into September.
