Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that Victoria Konefal will be exiting the role of Ciara Brady, so we should consider what that means for this character’s long-term future. There’s no confirmation on Ciara’s exit strategy just yet, but breaking up with Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) and leaving town seems like the most logical option.
DOOL insiders insist Konefal is indeed exiting, but the role hasn’t been recast so far. That makes sense for a couple reasons. One is that Days might want to keep their options open in case they can work something out with Konefal eventually.
Although there was reportedly a TON of drama going on before Konefal departed, there’s still a chance that everyone could cool off and compromise.
That might lead to a new deal for Konefal sooner or later, but there are no guarantees that’ll happen. As of right now, there are no comeback plans for Konefal’s Ciara. Even so, Days is smart to hold off on recasting the role. It can be jarring when you just plop a new actress in the mix, so it’s best to wait unless the character’s necessary for story purposes.
From the sound of things, Ciara filmed a solid exit that’ll work just fine until the show’s ready to bring her back. It’s tough to imagine Ciara staying off screen indefinitely, but Days could easily choose to rest this character for a year or two. They’ve done that with plenty of other characters in the past.
Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) has been recast and the new actress will debut later this summer, so a Ciara recast could follow at some point. Perhaps if Konefal finds work elsewhere or it becomes clear that her ship has sailed at Days of Our Lives, the show will pursue other options.
Bottom line, the role of Ciara Brady hasn’t been recast yet, but this character doesn’t seem like one that’ll remain out of the picture forever. It’s certainly possible that a new actress will score the part down the road.
