As we reported earlier today, the soap world and Days of our Lives fans were reeling a bit with a news item reported by Soap Opera Digest that James Scott (EJ Dimera) would not be staying with DAYS when his contract is up for renewal.
On-Air On-Soaps then checked with DAYS directly, and they informed us that things were still on-going with James and his contract talks with the series.
Now this afternoon, the talented and beloved Mr. Scott has issued his own statement clarifying his position for his fans. James said, “It has always been my wish to continue working with Days of our Lives, and in light of recent reassurances given, I am optimistic of my future here at Days.”
So hang tight, it would appear that James is working things out with the powers-that-be. We will keep you posted on any further updates should they become available. But James’ statement does offer some good news.
