Days of Our Lives Fan Fave Eileen Davidson Returns to Salem

Eileen Davidson, who’s set to play–well, no one knows yet–on Days of Our Lives this fall!

Eileen Davidson is set to make a Days of Our Lives comeback! But in what role?

Kooky Kristen?

“TV Insider can exclusively report that Emmy winner Eileen Davidson is returning to NBC’s Days of Our Lives,” reported…well, TV Insider Monday. Her work there won’t affect her portrayal of Ashley on CBS sudser The Young and the Restless.

A show rap played it cagey when asked if Davidson will reprise the role of kooky Kristen DiMera or any of her motley siblings.

Davidson’s Salem return is another in the growing list of incoming Head Writer Ron Carlivati’s casting coups. He’s also lured Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady), Chandler Massey (Will Horton) back to Salem. And who could forget the inspired casting of Morgan Fairchild as scheming Anjelica Deveraux.

Davidson won a Daytime Emmy for her work as Kristen, et. al., in 2014

Mum’s the Word

“The exact role—or roles—Eileen will be playing this time around is strictly under wraps. It’s all a big surprise for the audience,” said the show rep we mentioned above.

So who do you think–or simply want–it to be, dear Soap Cities readers? After all, isn’t daytime all about our wildest dreams?
