Days of Our Lives Comings and Goings: Eileen Davidson Returns For ‘Beyond Salem’
Days of Our Lives comings and going reveal Eileen Davidson returning to the Salem scene in the new Peacock Network streaming series, Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem.
Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Will Eileen Davidson Be Kristen or Susan — or Both?
It looks like Lisa Rinna jumped the gun and broke the news that Eileen Davidson is back at the Days of Our Lives studios when she posted a photo of the actress in a hair and makeup chair wearing one of Kristen’s signature red slinky gowns. Peacock later confirmed the news to Deadline. However, there is no word on whether Davidson will play Kristen DiMera, Susan Banks, or both. Just because Davidson was seen in a Kristen dress doesn’t mean Susan isn’t impersonating her.
The last we saw of Davidson on DOOL she was wearing that dress in 2017 when she laughed and laughed at the idea that she managed to save both EJ and Will from death with the help of Dr. Rolf (Will Utay). Stacy Haiduk has been playing both Kristen and Susan from 2018 until very recently. Kristen created quite a tear through Salem in 2021 as she kidnapped various characters and impersonated them with masks made by Rolf. It was all in a play to make sure she held onto Brady Black (Eric Martsolf). In the end, she lost him.
Many fans thought Haiduk had made the roles her own and could never imagine Davidson back playing the various doppelgangers she created back in the 1990s, especially when she still frequently appears as Ashley Abbott on The Young and the Restless. There’s also no word on whether Davidson is returning for the spin-off Peacock series or the regular NBC series.
A Host Of Other DOOL Returns
The casting list for Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem keeps expanding. Before the news of Davidson’s return broke, we also learned that former Y&R star Zach Tinker will be playing a recast Sonny Kiriakis and that Chandler Massey would return as Will. Christie Clark and Austin Peck are also reprising their roles as Carrie Brady and Austin Reed. We will also see Leann Hunley as Carrie’s mom, Anna DiMera, and Thaao Penghlis as her husband, Tony DiMera. Does Days of Our Lives have any more surprises in store for the Peacock series?
