NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Star Isabel Durant (Claire Brady) Opens Up About Making Salem Her New Home
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest, Isabel said that her start on the show has thankfully been a good one. The actress began filming back in February, right before production was forced to shut down because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“I worked with Deidre [Hall, Marlena] a few times, Alison Sweeney [Sami] and Lindsay Arnold, who plays Allie. I worked with Brandon [Barash, Jake] and Kristian [Alfonso, Hope], as well,” Durant relays. “I just remember watching them work and just studying them because it’s such a well-oiled machine and I think those iconic people that have been there for so long have it down to a T.
The professionalism and the kindness and generosity you have when you’re in their presence was really special to me. I sort of looked up to them and I knew that I could ask them any questions. They were just so open-hearted and generous with their time.
It wasn’t necessarily expected, because I think as a young person coming in, you put these people on a pedestal and you go, ‘Oh, they probably don’t have the time or energy,’ but it was the opposite of that entirely.”
And while the quarantine certainly made things a little more difficult in the work process, Isabel said that she’s happy to be back working on the set again.
“I do feel like that last week before we shut down I was like, ‘Okay, I found my feet here,’ ” she recalls. “So, of course, like everyone else I’m itching to go back. It’s really amazing. I’m smiling talking about it. I can’t wait to get back to work.”
