Carly’s life gets crowded.

Crystal Chappell (Carly) doesn’t have long left in Salem and a few characters will be popping up to help usher her away. Sydney Penny (ex-Julia, “All My Children”) will be coming to town to guest star for a seven episode stint. The Daytime vet will play Dr. Norman, the lady who has to help Carly kick her drug habit at the rehab center.

Also coming to “Days of our Lives” will be Cody Longo. The young actor has been cast as Dr. Manning’s often mentioned son, Nicolas Alamain. Longo may be familiar to some for his roles on “Make It Or Break It” and “CSI?.”

Look for Penny to appear beginning on August 30.
