The boys that live in “Days of our Lives” Salem better watch out, because a young siren is headed to town!
A source close to the show confirms that actress True O’Brien has been cast in the role of Paige, a Salem newbie who first appears on Monday, March 3. There’s no word yet on what brings Paige to town or which characters she may be connecting with.
Viewers may recognize O’Brien, however, from her role as Diamond Bloodworth in The Disney Channel’s “Jessie.”
Soap siblings Heather Tom (Katie Logan, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) and David Tom (Billy Abbott, “The Young and the Restless”) not only share a family, career paths and a last name, they’re also sharing the stage at CBS’ popular daytime program, “The Talk!”
The real-life brother and sister duo will be joining hosts Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood, Aisha Tyler, Sharon Osbourne and Julie Chen to chat about their characters’ insane love lives — and you can bet that the ladies will get the scoop on whether or not Katie will allow Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) to successfully make it down the aisle, and how Victoria (Amelia Heinle) will react when she finally finds out that Billy slept with Kelly (Cynthia Watros)!
To catch all of the fun, be sure to tune into CBS’ “The Talk” today, February 17 at 2:00 PM ET or 1:00 PT/CT.

A rep for “GH” confirms that Natalia Livingston will be reprising the role of Alan (Stuart Damon) and Monica’s (Leslie Charlson) adopted daughter, albeit in the specter form. Further details including the length of her return and airdates have yet to be released.
