Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) will look a bit different soon. CDL previously reported that the role of Claire would be recast – and now we know who’s playing the part.
Reliable DOOL insiders confirm that Isabel Durant will step in for Olivia Rose Keegan, who couldn’t continue playing Claire due to other commitments.
Durant is an Australian actress, so she’ll have to disguise her usual accent to sound American. However, Durant’s overall look captures Claire’s vibe. She’s got blonde hair and blue eyes, so we’ll still be getting a Claire that’s reminiscent of Keegan.
It’s worth noting that Days decided to cast someone a bit older this time around. Durant is 28 whereas Keegan is only 20, so that could be an attempt to make Claire more flexible for pairings. It doesn’t hurt to go a little older in this case and open up other romantic options.
As for Durant’s previous acting credits, she’s had roles on a TV series called Camp as well as Dance Academy and Mako Mermaids. Durant also appeared as Kelly on This Is Us in 2017 and played Shari Dickstein on Life Itself in 2018. As a fun fact, Durant was a contestant on So You Think You Can Dance Australia, too.
Keegan’s a great actress and will certainly be missed, but Durant deserves a chance to put her own spin on the role. It’s always good to keep an open mind and welcome a new cast member to Days of Our Lives!
As for what’s next in Salem, it’ll be interesting to see what’s ahead for Claire – especially since we know Ciara Brady Weston’s (Victoria Konefal) leaving Salem.
Whatever the case, Durant was reportedly still filming as Claire when the show was forced to suspend production. It sounds like Durant will be back on set in September unless more behind-the-scenes shakeups happen. We’ll deliver updates as other Days news pops up.
