“Days of Our Lives” has been in the news a lot lately. Kassie DePaiva joined the show earlier this year and has been actively airing throughout the summer. Her character Eve is causing trouble all over Salem. According to an August 26 report from Soap Opera Digest, Melissa Archer has joined “Days of Our Lives.” Archer has already been filming scenes, but there is no word on her character details or the length of her contract.
This is exciting news for both “Days of Our Lives” fans and viewers who also watched “One Life to Live.” Kassie DePaiva played Blair Kramer and Melissa Archer played Natalie Buchanan on the now-canceled soap. It appears that these two will reconnect in Salem as well. Archer was also appearing in the web-based soap “Beacon Hill.” DePaiva tweeted a photo of Archer and herself on the set of “Days of Our Lives” earlier today.
Fans have been commenting about their excitement for Melissa Archer since the news broke. When “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” went off the air, several great actors were put out of work. The fact that Archer has a friend at “Days of Our Lives” already makes things a little easier. Kassie DePaiva has always been buddies with Archer, so this is good news all around. There has not been an exact date released for when Archer will begin airing, but the assumption is sometime this fall. Since taping has started it takes about four weeks before the episodes will shown.
