'Days of our Lives' Continues to Search For a New Abigail

Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Days of our Lives has released a new breakdown for Abigail Deveraux, the role currently played by Kate Mansi. The popular actress has elected to leave the soap after five years in the role.

The casting call for Abby reveals,"She comes from a loving home, despite her father's lack of consistency in her life. Abigail looks innocent and young but can often seems more mature in essence than her 26 years because of the difficulties she’s experienced. She’s made plenty of mistakes in her life, but she tries to learn from them and has compassion for others. She’s fiercely loyal and protective of her family, and she has a spark and youthful joy that endears her to everyone she meets.”

Digest also reports that the casting sheet indicated the DAYS actors are on hiatus until April 4, but the show is still actively casting for the part, which would start taping at the end of April.
