Jillian Clare Is Not Returning to 'Days of our Lives'

Jillian Clare at the 6th Annual Indie Series Awards on April 1, 2015.
Jillian Clare played the role of Abigail Deveraux on NBC soap opera Days of our Lives in 2003-2004 as a pre-teen. She has since gone on to star in a number of films (Alien Abduction, The Kitchen), primetime series (Suburgatory, Castle), and played starring roles in multiple web series (Acting Dead, Miss Behave). The busy actress won an Indie Series Award in 2014 for her work in Clutch, and has been nominated four other times. And now she is suddenly the subject of daytime casting gossip. The rumor mill has been running wild with speculation since last night, when a poster at a popular message board claimed the Clare had been asked to return to Days. This led to speculation that Clare would reprise the role of Abby, taking over from current actress Kate Mansi, or possibly playing a whole new character altogether.

With no new daytime soap episodes since Wednesday, it appears some viewers let their imaginations create new storylines to focus on. But to clear it up, Clare has not been asked to return to Days of our Lives. And if she ever is someday, Serial Scoop will let you know. 

If you haven't been following the mad-talented Clare's post-Days work, you are missing out. I highly recommend her hilarious performance as a ghost in ISA best comedy winner, Acting Dead.

Our web series, Serial Scoop Now, spoke to Clare on the red carpet at the Indie Series Awards in April. Check it out in the clip below.

The Complete Story of 'The Doctors' (1963-1973)

Daytime TV covered the world of soap operas for decades before finally folding in the 1990s. In the mid-70s, the magazine did an excellent series titled "The Complete Story of..." recounting the history of a soap opera from its inception. Below is the historical feature on the first 10 years of NBC's The Doctors (1963-1973), which is currently being aired on Retro TV. Some of the interesting tidbits include: * The Doctors did not start as a serial; it began as a "half-hour anthology series of medical dramas, set in the large metropolitan Hope Memorial Hospital, and with the four principals alternating daily in the lead role, according to NBC's original announcement. The roles were Dr. William Scott (played by Jock Gaynor), Dr. Jerry Chandler (portrayed by Richard Roat), Dr. Elizabeth Hayes (played by Margot Moser) and Rev.
