‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Star Raven Bowens’ (Chanel Dupree) Olympic Connection

‘Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) spoilers find that Star Raven Bowens may be new to DOOL fans but she’s not new to acting. One of her previous credits was playing Adria Biles, sister to GOAT gymnast, Simone Biles in the 2018 The Simone Biles Story: Courage to Soar.

The young actress described to Soap Opera Digest the thrill she experienced watching Biles take the bronze in Beam and silver in ladies artistic team at the Tokyo Olympics which wrapped up on Sunday.

“First of all, Simone is my hero,” Bowens told Soap Opera Digest. She then went on to say she has the honor of meeting the highly decorated Olympian when filming the biopic in Canada.

“She came out there with her family. They were just really wonderful people.”

She continued to say she was extra excited about watching Biles in the Olympics “I feel like ‘That’s my girl!’, Bowens gushed. She also told Soap Opera Digest that the cast she worked with on the biopic became very close, especially she and Jeanté Godlock who played Simone. The two even made a pact to travel to Tokyo together in 2020 to watch Simone perform.

“We had our plan to go but…you know….Covid,” Bowens shrugged.

Of course, Simone’s appearance at the Tokyo Olympics didn’t turn out quite like anyone expected as the captain of the US team took a step back, competing (and medaling) in just the Beam and Artistic Gymnastics Ladies Team, as she concentrated on her mental health.

Bowens life also looks a little different now she has been cast as Chanel on the long running soap. It seems Chanel, who has caused more than one wave since her arrival in Salem is set to catch newbie Johnny DiMera’s (Carson Boatman) eye when the character reappears in town

We can’t see this sitting well with Johnny’s twin and previous “kind-of” flame Allie Horton (Lindsey Arnold)!

Watch Days of Or Lives, weekdays on NBC to see how this triangle plays out!
