Forums Days of Our Lives Shrink the Days Cast! Viewing 17 posts - 1 through 17 (of 17 total) Author Posts November 29, 2009 at 11:51 pm #109692 Anonymous 2899 Posts Days has 29 contract castmembers…for the sake of this thread, let’s say Days has to slash its budget and reduce its contract cast to 20. Who would you cut? Rules: 8 contract cast members must be cut. You can choose to have 8 characters written off entirely, or you may choose up to 3 to move to recurring status (the remaining 5 are written out). For everyone’s sake, I’m removing Alice from the list so no one has to be the jerk that fires Frances Reid. So there are 28 people below, and 8 must go. Who are they?

(all numbers are subject to change, use this as a rough idea, this information was created using wiki list of current contracted actors) January 4, 2010 at 10:48 pm #335507 EricasEvilTwin 1035 Posts I didnt think DOOL was higher than OLTL. January 5, 2010 at 1:05 am #335538 Johnathon 145 Posts Whats scary is when you compare it to the international soaps UK- Eastenders- 54 contract, 12 recurring, 8 named extras Coronation street- 60 contract, 8 recurring Emmerdale 68 contract Hollyoaks- 56 contract, 11 recurring Australian soaps- Home and away – 22 contract Neighbours -22 contract, 10 recurring New Zeland soap- Shortland Street – 21 contract, 9 recurring All i have to say is DANG the uk loves them some actors, and did i mention that all of these are 30 minute soaps?
