NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Kenneth Robert Corday Talks Cast Changes
In response, Ken told the publication, “We knew Greg Vaughan [Eric] was leaving. There was no stopping that from happening. As for Kristian [Alfonso, Hope], I asked if she would work with us and take a rest for four months and then we’d have a gangbuster story for her and she chose to leave the show, unfortunately. It was not my druthers, but it was hers, and that’s her right. Victoria Konefal [Ciara] has left … and will return … and will leave, so she’ll be coming and going. But we haven’t seen the last of her. Chandler Massey [Will] and Freddie Smith [Sonny] are leaving, but they also will be returning on and off. It’s not like they’re leaving, good-bye forever. It’s something we don’t like doing, closing the door permanently.”
However, there are some high-profiled stars that are returning, such as Galen Gering and even Camila Banus, whose departure was only temporary.
Kenneth Robert Corday continued, “Galen Gering is returning as Rafe. Alison Sweeney [Sami] is returning with much fanfare. Camila Banus [Gabi] and Marci Miller [Abigail] will both be back. Tamara Braun [Ava] is coming back and that’s important, not only for Steve and Kayla, but for her son, Tripp, and others to be determined. Mr. Carlivati [head writer] has a big story there. It’s exciting. I think she’s a marvelous actress. And this time, we’re not just going to be seeing ‘Evil Ava’. There will be more colors there, and she will be more sympathetic than what we’ve played before.”
