As previously reported, Jade Harlow is joining the cast of NBC’s “Days of our Lives” in a recurring role. Now Soap Opera Network can report that the former “Passions” actress will be playing Sheryl, an old friend of Jordan’s (Chrishell Stause), who mixes it up with Kate (Lauren Koslow), Lucas (Bryan Dattilo), Rafe (Galen Gering) and Sami (Alison Sweeney).
In noting her debut on her Facebook page recently, Harlow said, “Happy New Year!!!! I’m thrilled to Finally announce that I’m headed back to NBC with a juicy reoccurring role on “Days of Our Lives”!!! With my 1st air-date just about one week away on 01/07/14… see u in Salem.”
In addition to her 2000-2003 stint as Jessica Bennett on “Passions,” Harlow is currently starring as Lianna Ramos on ”The Bay: The Series,” a soap opera that also features several daytime veterans including “DAYS’” Mary Beth Evans (Kayla Brady).
In its newest issue, Soap Opera Digest shed some light on Mark Collier‘s new role on NBC’s “Days of our Lives.” The actor, who debuts on the Wednesday, December 18 episode, is portraying Liam, who Adrienne Kiriakis (Judi Evans) sets up on a date with Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves). “I knew his first name was Liam, but not much more than that. He went to high school in Salem,” shares the actor who began filming in August. Ironically, with Collier now on board, the “DAYS” cast now includes the first two actors who portrayed “As The World Turns’” Mike Kasnoff (Collier played the character from 2002-2007; Shawn Christian [Daniel Jonas] originated the role in 1994).
With nearly 24 minutes in total airtime between them, LANYentertainment released the first two installments of “The Bay: The Series” chapter 11 on the official “Bay” website yesterday. Fans of the series will not only get caught up in the happenings in Bay City, but they’ll also get their fill of drama, sex, drugs, romance, deception, murder, and much more.
The Emmy-nominated online soap opera “The Bay” is back for its 11th chapter, and the sudser’s return is expected to be edgier, bigger and better than ever!
