Olivia Rose Keegan spills the tea on Claire Brady’s return to Salem.
Claire Brady is headed back to Salem June 2! No one is happier than Olivia Rose Keegan, who recently talked to Soaps.com about her return to Days of our Lives. It sounds like Claire’s time in Bayview brought about some interesting new developments in her life.
Viewers last saw Claire’s major storyline in July 2019 during her firestarter streak that ended with her mental breakdown. Her time at Bayview wasn’t idle, though, Keegan confirmed that Claire’s Bayview roommate, Gwen (Emily O’Brien), will be a big part of her return. She likens Gwen to the devil and angel sitting on Claire’s shoulders.
Keegan also revealed that Claire’s relationship with her parents, Shawn Brady (Brandon Beemer) and Belle Black (Martha Madison), will undergo some much-needed healing. However, don’t expect Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) and Ciara Brady’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding to be uneventful with Claire back in town — there is some drama ahead!
With Los Angeles stay-at-home orders still in place, Keegan spent part of her time up in Oregon with her boyfriend and his parents. She enjoyed being in a small town for part of the quarantine, but she’s ready to dine-in at a restaurant, socialize with her friends and throw a huge party once it’s safe to do so again. Count us in for an invite!
Fans will also see more of Keegan on television once Season 2 of Disney +’s High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is released. She still has more scenes to film as Lily, the school’s sweet, but competitive freshman, so she’s buffing up on her dance skills in anticipation of the cast’s return to set.
Watch the interview to find out what Keegan thinks about Claire’s friendship with fellow Bayview patient, Gwen and how Jake (Brandon Barash) might play a role in her return to Salem.
