Salem is about to get two new characters on the scene, and Soaps.com is happy to report that they aren’t strangers to Daytime!

First we have actor David Leisure set to arrive as the new District Attorney. Though an air date has yet to be released, Ken Corday (Days’ Producer) teases that he’ll have a few cases to keep him occupied! Aside from many Primetime and movie credits, David most recently appeared on CBS’ The Young and the Restless as Roger Wilkes for twenty episodes in 2009.

Next, when the body of a man named Carlo turns up, Catherine Wadkins’ character will appear as what else – a widow! Expect to see her on August 3 and 4, where she’ll appear in a few shots with Phillip (Jay Kenneth Johnson). Catherine was last seen in Daytime playing another widow, Mary Bishop, on General Hospital in 2004.

Soaps.com wants to welcome David and Catherine to the show! Have you seen these two in action before? Please tell Soaps.com your recollections below!
