Two fan favorites will be sticking around Salem. Deadline reported that Robert Scott Wilson (Ben Weston) and Jackée Harry (Paulina Price) signed new contracts with Days of Our Lives in anticipation of the show's recent pick-up. Harry has been upped from recurring to full-time.
Both characters are linked to core Salem families. Former serial killer Ben is currently married, and estranged from, amnesiac Ciara Brady Weston (Victoria Konefal). Meanwhile, real-estate mogul Paulina is the maternal aunt to Lani Price Grant (Sal Stowers), sister to singer Tamara Price (Marilyn McCoo), mom to Chanel Dupree (Precious Way), and possible business collaborator of Salem politician Abe Carver (James Reynolds).
