Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Natalia Livingston (popular daytime star from General Hospital) has joined the cast of Days of Our Lives in the role of Taylor Raines.  Taylor is the sister of Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) who last appeared in Salem in the late 90’s played by another actress.  I find it interesting that they’re bringing Nicole’s sister back and I love the fact that it’s a well known daytime start playing her.  Taylor is sure to have much more impact this time around.

I’m also excited for the return of my fave Days of Our Lives actress, Melissa Reeves.  Melissa Reeves plays Jennifer Horton who has been my fave character on Days of Our Lives since I started watching the show when I was in 5th grade.

So, while I’m sad that Lindsay Hartley is leaving the show this week, at least there is some good news on the horizon!

Am I the only one that is EXTREMELY upset that the beautiful and talented Lindsay Hartley is leaving “Days of Our Lives”?  Lindsay was my favorite actress on “Passions” where she played Theresa Lopez-Fitzgerald-Winthrop, so I was beyond excited when she joined the cast of my favorite soap, “Days of Our Lives” as Arianna Hernandez.  Then the show had to go and get rid of her.  😦  I know she’s going to resurface in December on an ABC soap opera, but I can’t get into another show.  I’m really going to miss seeing her face every day.  And to add insult to injury, the show isn’t just having her move out of town, they’re killing her.  I know on soaps that that doesn’t mean much.  So, I’m just hoping that Stefano (Joseph Mascolo) secretly steals her comatose body and holds her hostage to one day unleash her on the town of Salem.

I believe Lindsay’s last air date will be this Friday, 10/22/10.  How do you all feel about Lindsay leaving Salem???

So, another old fave is returning to Melrose…Daphne Zuniga is returning for a few episodes as Jo Reynolds.  You may all remember that Jo moved into the complex about half way through the first season replacing Sandy Louise Harling (Amy Locane).  Jo came on the scene as a photographer with a lot of baggage and was a total rebel.  She carried a gun and rode a motorcycle.  Total bad ass!  😉  Anywho, after a few seasons, Jo was softened beyond recognition and soon found herself always being the damsel in distress.  That said, her romance with Jake Hanson (Grant Show) was definitely one for the ages on Melrose.  They had great chemistry, but were always being broken up by other characters.  Jo found herself at odds with Jane (Josie Bissett) when Jo began dating Richard (Patrick Muldoon) who was Jane’s ex.  Jo left Melrose after some guy she was dating proposed to her and took her away.  Now, Jo will be returning to Melrose as a professional photographer.  No news yet on what her story will be.  But I’ll keep looking!  Daphne marks the fourth original cast member to return to Melrose, with Laura Leighton (Sydney), Thomas Calabro (Michael), and Jose Bissett (Jane) also set to return.

In other casting news, Brooke Burns of Baywatch fame, is also moving into Melrose.  Brooke will be playing Michael’s (Thomas Calabro) wife, Vanessa Mancini.  Apparently Michael will be up to his old antics and Vanessa will get caught up in it all.

Also, fans of the original series will remember when Sydney (Laura Leighton) worked for a famous Hollywood Madame, played by Days of Our Live’s Kristian Alfonso (Hope on Days).  Well, it looks like one of the new residents will be repeating history…and the new Madame has been cast.  She will be played by Kelly Carlson of Nip/Tuck fame.
