Martha Madison (Marly Nelson-Foster, “The Bay” and Miranda Winterthorne, “Winterthorne”) announced today on her TRadioV show “Soap Box” that she is returning to “Days of our Lives” as Belle Black Brady. Madison has signed a contract with the show and her first airdate is November 25.

Madison was the last actor to play Belle Black Brady, a role previously made popular by Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones, “General Hospital.”) Belle left the show with her husband Shawn Douglas Brady (Brandon Beemer) and their daughter Claire in 2008 in order to sail around the world, much like Shawn’s parents Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) once did. Martha’s return comes hot on the heels of the announcement that Jason Cook is returning to Days as Shawn Douglas Brady.
