Precious Way is joining Days of Our Lives as Chanel, the daughter of Jackée Harry’s upcoming character Paulina. The news was first reported by Blackfilm and she makes her debut during the week of March 22.
Not much is known about Paulina or her daughter Chanel, other than they are connected through the Carvers, expanding the already established family further. Could Paulina be Abe’s sister we’ve never heard of, making Chanel his niece? In our February sweeps interview with head writer Ron Carlivati, he indicated that Paulina will somehow be, “Tied to the next arc of Eli and Lani’s story.”
Currently, Eli and Lani, who is Abe’s daughter, are desperate to find their newborn twins, who have been kidnapped by Dr. Raynor and Ivan, Vivian Alamain’s manservant. On February 2nd’s show, Ivan was seen delivering the babies to his beloved Madame, who will be played by Linda Dano this time around.
Way is an established musician and actress. Her first single “Watch Me Go” debuted nationally in 2018. With Days of Our Lives often featuring the musical talents of some of their cast, it’s possible her character could be involved in the industry. After the debut of her single, Way turned her eye to acting and landed the co-lead role of Luscious T in the upcoming series Partners in Rhyme for Urban Movie Chanel. The series was developed and created by MC Lyte, who also produces and co-stars as Lana Crawford.
As we await the debut of both Paulina and her daughter Chanel, and learn how they are connected to Lani and Abe, why not check out this gallery of Sami Brady over the years, as she is also set to return to Salem shortly.
