And no, to spare you the disappointment, it’s not Ciara. Details behind the cut…
Miller began taping her episodes this month in preparation for her debut on the NBC sudser this fall. Her credits include roles in indie films like Dog Bowl as well as the Universal remake of Death Race 2050.
Aside from cackling at the title Dog Bowl, I don’t have too many feelings on this right now. I like her look — which in different ways is giving me young Melissa Reeves and also Stephanie Johnson #1. I don’t mind that they went with someone who hasn’t really had TV experience; Kate Mansi didn’t have many credits when she took on the role, and she turned out to be a great find. And at least they aren’t just plugging a middling actress from one of the remaining soaps into Days and assuming that a “name” would take the place of writing.
Basically: congrats to Marci Miller on what could be a great break, and also, fingers crossed.
