Speaking to the publication in a new interview, Isabel said that she’s not looking to copy her predecessor’s performance but instead portray her in a different light.
“Olivia is Olivia and she’s brilliant,” Isabel said. “I sort of made the call that I would just listen to what people said. I would listen to how the character was and just do my best to find it within myself as the weeks went on. It was a welcome challenge.”
Meanwhile, Days of Our Lives executive producer Ron Carlivati had this to say on Twitter right before Isabel made her debut, “A huge thank you to Olivia Rose Keegan who brought Claire Brady to life and made us care about her even when she was at her most dastardly.
Wishing Olivia all the best as she writes her next chapter… But as one chapter ends, another begins. Please help me welcome Isabel Durant to Salem as she steps into the role of Claire.”
