Days of our Lives, NBCDEBBIE...
The news of changes hitting NBC's "Days of our Lives" keeps on rolling tonight as one of the soaps outgoing stars, Matthew Ashford (soon-to-be ex-Jack Deveraux), posted a heartfelt message to his fans on his Facebook page just a short time ago in response to the news of his pending departure:
Although Soap Opera Digest has since "confirmed" their story on the ouster of several "Days of our Lives" stars with a show representative, according to its website, one actress appears to not have been told as the magazine stated. In fact, it looks like if the firings do hold, actress Sarah Brown (Madison James) has not been told by her bossess of any change to her status with the NBC daytime soap.
In an interview posted earlier today by TV Guide's Michael Logan, it looked like Co-Executive Producer Greg Meng was alluding to the possible ouster of actress Sarah Brown when he stated "we also brought in the wonderful Sarah Brown [Madison James] and threw her into a lot of material very quickly. Maybe too much too quickly." Sadly, it looks like he was indeed commenting on Brown's character on the show in past tense.
TV Guide's Michael Logan got the first real interview with "Days of our Lives" Co-Executive Producer Greg Meng, just days after the soap fired its head writing team and replaced them with the team of Gary Tomlin and Christopher Whitesell. In the interview, Meng promises some epic firings in the coming months!
