Fairchild To Add the Fab to Fabulous in Salem

“A show rep at ‘Days of our Lives’ has confirmed to that talented Morgan Fairchild will be making an appearance on NBC’s ‘Days of our Lives’ this summer,” reported

“Soap vet Morgan Fairchild has been tapped to play Anjelica Deveraux on Days and will begin airing this summer,” reported Soap Opera Digest (SOD).

“I was thrilled to get to work with great folks like Deidre Hall [Marlena] and Judi Evans [Adrienne] on an iconic show like Days of Our Lives,” Fairchild told the venerated soap magazine, SOD.

Rumor on the Salem street is that Anjelica’s son with Justin (Wally Kurth), Alex, will return to the show as well, battling Sonny (Freddie Smith) for the top spot in the Kiriakis empire.

A Singular Television Career

Fairchild has a host of regular, recurring, and guest-starring roles on several TV shows since her debut in that medium in 1973.

Also: Alison Sweeney to reprise role of Sami Brady.

Since then she’s almost made an on-screen brand for herself. The characters she plays tend to be wealthy, very glamorous, independent, scheming, but ultimately heroines–or at least anti-heroines. Perhaps the most emblematic of these was was media mogul Sydney Chase on Loving spin-off, The City.

Don’t Miss: Days’ Kate Mansi on her Daytime Emmy nom and more–she won, of course!

Whomever Fairchild plays, it looks like she’ll be another welcome change Ron Carlivati has in the works for our beloved Days of Our Lives. So far fan faves Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) and Chandler Massey (Will Horton) have confirmed their returns to the show!
