    According to Soap Opera Digest, Jen Lilley (ex-Maxie, GH) has been cast in an as-yet-unrevealed role on Days of our Lives, and has been taping for a month already.  SOD said they can’t reveal who she’s playing, but the character has ties to the canvas and is not a recast.  The news got out, apparently, after Greg Vaughn tweeted about working with Lilley.

    It’s also worth mentioning that Jamie Lyn Bauer will be making a return visit to the show as Laura Horton.  I think it’s assumed she’s be involved in whatever Jennifer is up to at the time, but it seems equally likely to me she might be involved with Marlena and Kristen.

    It’s also kind of funny getting Jen Lilley on DAYS because of the Maxie connection.  Kirsten Storms was Belle on DAYS, then went to GH to play Maxie.  She was recast with Martha Madison, who later filled in for Rebecca Herbst as Liz on GH.  Jen Lilley filled in for Storms as Maxie, and is now playing someone on DAYS. 

    But that isn’t even the first odd casting interaction between GH/DAYS.  It’s also weird to me how DAYS hired Tamara Braun, formerly GH’s Carly, to play Ava, then shortly thereafter hired her to play Taylor as a recast for Natalia Livingston, who’d played GH’s Emily.  DAYS then let go of Braun and the character and almost immediately brought in Sarah Brown, the original Carly from GH, as Madison James.  I just find the merry-go-round interesting.

    I would be so so sad if they brought Belle back and it wasn’t Martha Madison.  Although I do like the idea of Belle showing up in Salem with Claire and saying that Bo and Shawn were lost at sea after their boat exploded or something, not because I want to get rid of Shawn, but because for Pete’s sake, something had to happen to Bo.

    I know for sure it’s not Belle, they said that, but what i don’t understand is they originally said that she  is a returning character, would that not mean she must be a recast? Orelse a character who was given birth to on the show years ago, but was never ever shown?

    Wonder who she will be playing, but we won’t be seeing her until like August or September b/c of their filming schedule.

    She’s already been filming for a month, so I think we’ll see her a little sooner than that, maybe end of June or so.  If she’s playing a returning character — and I guess they do just mean not a recast in the sense of not replacing an actor currently on screen — I would guess Chelsea or Stephanie.

    The SOD article says the character has ties to the canvas but it NOT a recast so that rules out Belle.
