Great news fans, Louise Sorel is back on the set of Days of Our Lives shooting scenes as Vivian. The daytime legend recently sat down with Harvey Brownstone and revealed that she first returned to the studio on Friday, March 17.

When asked what it was like being back, the actress admitted that it was difficult, due to the rules surrounding COVID. “I was in shock,” she stated then recalled how people have to be tested before they even in get into the building. Once cleared, after sitting alone in your dressing room, “which could be two hours,” they shoot “twice as fast as they ever did.”

Having been away for three years, Sorel revealed, “I felt god-awful.” In fact, she found herself apologizing left and right because they were loading her up with dialogue and “it’s been a while.”
