|Kate Mansi will soon depart the role of Abby on DAYS|
When the initial casting call first went out, I was aware that Mansi was departing her popular role of Abby. Although the description of the character didn't match with what we knew about the character, I assumed this was a recast for Abby.
It now seems safe to assume, that the character indeed will be recast.
According to Soap Opera Digest, "Val" is now a 24 to 28-year-old who is described as "a gorgeous young professional. Val has already experienced great love and great loss in her young life which has left her strong spirit with a fragility she passionately protects. She has a determination to live and love as fearlessly as she can in the wake of all she has been through.”
Days is seeking "VERY VERY STRONG ACTORS,” for the role, which is currently recurring with the possibility of going contract. The call also reads, "PLEASE DO NOT RESUBMIT ACTORS ALREADY SEEN FOR VAL ROLE IN DECEMBER.”
Kate Mansi will last air as Abigail Deveraux in May, and it's looking more and more like "Val" is indeed an Abby recast.
Would you be able to accept a new Abby? Kate Mansi and Billy Flynn have extraordinary chemistry as Abby and Chad, and I wouldn't want to lose this love story. Flynn is more than capable of working with a new actress and recreating the Chad and Abby magic.
What do you think? Do you want Abby recast, or do you want to see the sexy Chad with a new woman? Sound off below!
