Days Of Our Lives Spoilers: Head Writer Explains Killing Abigail, Why Recast Idea Rejected
Days of Our Lives spoilers reveal that Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) finds Abigail DiMera (Marci Miller) dead. Even though this is a murder mystery and characters are killed off all the time, this one will be hard for fans. After all, Abigail is part of a core Salem family, is a fan favorite, and is a legacy character. So, why did head writer Ron Carlivati choose this kind of exit for Abigail?
Days Of Our Lives Spoiler – Marci Miller Not Available Full-Time
DOOL spoilers reveal that actress Marci Miller isn’t available full-time anymore. So, the head writer and other soap bosses at Corday Productions started talking about what to do with Abigail. In the end, it was decided that Abigail needed to die. Of course, dead characters come back all the time in Salem. This is teased to be a permanent death, though.
DOOL Spoilers – Chad DiMera Moving On
When the head writer spoke to Soap Opera Digest, he explained that a lot of different options for Abigail were discussed. Chad and Abigail could always break up, but they wanted Billy Flynn’s character to be able to move on with another love interest. Abigail could just not be seen very much, but they felt that would limit Chad’s storylines.
Days Of Our Lives Spoilers – What About Kate Mansi Or Another Recast?
Days of Our Lives spoilers reveal that Kate Mansi used to play the part of Abigail. As for why she wasn’t brought back to replace Miller, that wasn’t an option. So, it sounds as if Mansi either didn’t want to come back or might be too busy with other projects.
There is always the recast possibility. However, Carlivati said that they decided not to explore that option with Abigail. Abigail has already been recast a few times. Then, there was the rollercoaster of bouncing between Mansi and Miller. Fans didn’t like going back and forth between actors. Plus, recasts can go bad and sometimes just don’t work out.
