Michael Learned will be temporarily taking over the role of Katherine Chancellor starting November 10. The role has been temporarily recast due to Jeanne Cooper being ill. Cooper should be taping again before the end of the month.
Is it weird to anyone else how much of a thing this is now? I guess production can't afford to be waiting for people who are sick for a couple of weeks or people needing time to recooperate from medical procedures or whatever. In the past six or so months, Rebecca Herbst, Kirsten Storms, and now Jeanne Cooper have all gotten temporary replacements. It just strikes me as kind of a crazy trend.
You know who would be awesome in Salem right now? Carrie Brady! Make it happen, DAYS OF OUR LIVES!
