Days of Our Lives spoilers and comings and goings tease that another new character is headed to Salem. DOOL spoilers revealed months ago that One Life To Live alum Melissa Archer had been cast as the latest newest Salemite, and would play the part of Serena Mason; however, details on the new Days character were sparse. Days of Our Lives spoilers have confirmed that Serena will make her DOOL debut on Friday, December 5th.
According to Days of Our Lives spoilers in an all new TV Guide interview with Melissa Archer, her character Serena will really shake things up in Salem – and is the ex-girlfriend of a major cast member! According to TV Guide, “Melissa Archer, the flame-haired fan fave from One Life to Live, will hit NBC’s Days of Our Lives Dec. 5 as Serena Mason, a globe-hopping medical journalist who had a romance with Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) several years ago in Africa. Their love affair ended when Eric chose to enter the priesthood. But now that he’s been defrocked — thanks to that sordid incident where he was raped on tape by psycho-villain Kristen DiMera (Eileen Davidson)— he’s one available heartthrob!”
In Archer’s interview the soap actress explains that, “He was a photographer and she was a reporter and they formed a real bond because of what they were going through and what they were witnessing over there.” DOOL spoilers have been teasing a budding romance between Nicole and Daniel for quite a while, so if Nicole and Eric’s relationship is finally over it only makes sense that he gets a new love interest, or an old one — however you want to look at it.
So Days fans, what do you think of Eric’s new/old friend Serena Mason? Will Melissa Archer and Greg Vaughan have good chemistry?
