Former “Days of our Lives” siren Krista Allen (ex-Billie Reed) has had quite an impressive run since departing Salem in 1999 with roles on shows like “Mistresses,” “Baywatch,” “Hawaii Five-0” and “Melissa & Joey,” but her latest gig puts her back in the soap orbit — at least partially: She’ll be featured in an upcoming episode of ABC’s “Castle,” which stars former “One Life to Live” actor, Nathan Fillion (ex-Joey Buchanan)!

A rep for “Castle” confirms that the actress will be in an upcoming episode, which TV Line reports will revolve around the murder of a Sylvester Stallone-like movie star. Allen will play Naomi Duvray, who’s described as “a former silver screen siren who starred in a slew of critically unacclaimed 1980s action movies,” and “the wife of yet-to-be-cast Brock Harmon, the murder vic’s onetime regular costar and now the frontman for a B-movie franchise.”

There’s no word yet on when Allen’s episode will air, but rumor has it that it won’t be long.

“Just booked a fun role on @Castle_ABC,” the actress tweeted last week. “Looking forward to playing with @NathanFillion and @Stana_Katic!”
