Gracious soap starlet Crystal Chappell is tweeting about the bittesweet news that she will be returning to Days of Our Lives in her signature role as Katerina Von Leuschner/ Dr. Carly Manning as the chapter closes for Guiding Light's breathtaking Otalia pairing this September.
Wow! Word travels fast. I'm happy and sad. So wanted Otalia to go on. Can't say that enough. But am looking forward to new challenges.
I for one am ENCOURAGING all of Otalia's fans to follow Chappell to Salem. If you listen to us on the CBS/DAYS podcast, you'll note that several of us feel DAYS has gotten much better of late. It definitely has miles to go, but then so did GL prior to February and look at what Jill Lorie Hurst and her team accomplished creatiely in such a short time. The return of an actress like Chappell, a performer as visceral and gritty as she is exotically beautiful, will only add to the restorative work Gary Tomlin and Chris Whitesell are performing at DAYS.
