ALL THINGS RELATED

The New Year is bringing a fresh start to many, but it looks like it’ll be the same ol’ same ol’ dysfunction for “Days of our Lives’” Sami (Alison Sweeney) and EJ (James Scott) — and that’s exactly how their portrayers and their fans seem to want it! Soap Opera Network sat down with the popular pair to get their take on their alter ego’s dysfunctional relationship, what goes into their incredibly passionate and controversial fight scenes, how Abigail (Kate Mansi) could be a threat to their future, and more!
Remember our interview with "Days of our Lives'" Kate Mansi (Abigail Deveraux) in which she said, "There are some interesting turns, and it’s not subtle. It’s going to hit everyone like a ton of bricks. You’ll be like, ‘WHAT?!’ It’s really unexpected," in regards to her characters' potential love interest? Turns out Mansi may have been referring to the growing attraction between Abigail and EJ DiMera (James Scott)!

The video includes cameo appearances by several cast members (including James Scott and Alison Sweeney), crew and even the shows' publicity team.

On today's episode of NBC's "Days of our Lives," Chandler Massey says goodbye to his multi-Daytime Emmy Award winning role of Will Horton. As previously reported, Massey planned to depart the daytime drama series when his contract was set to expire in December 2013, but show producers opted instead to replace the actor upon his completion of his filming of scenes in August of last year, citing the exit as being storyline dictated.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Daniel Cosgrove has joined the cast of NBC's "Days of our Lives" in the newly created role of Aiden. "This is the first time that I’ve ever played a daytime character that wasn’t played by someone else," said the actor to the magazine of his previous roles as Scott Chandler ("All My Children"), Chris Hughes ("As The World Turns") and Bill Lewis ("Guiding Light"), all played by several actors prior to his portrayal.
With just 10 days to go before it goes dark for good, one piece of several puzzles surrounding the end of SOAPnet was where some of the shows currently airing on the cable network would land once it said goodbye. In a press release, Pivot announced earlier this week that it has landed the rebroadcast airing rights to "Veronica Mars," which joined the SOAPnet lineup in March 2012. In announcing its agreement with Warner Bros. Television, producers of the series, the network also announced that it has picked up rerun rights to "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," which starred former "All My Children" actress Sarah Michelle Gellar (ex-Kendall Hart), as well. "Mars" starred Kristen Bell in the title role.
