Daytime casting news.

Big returns, sad goodbyes and fresh faces are always part of the Daytime game. Find out who’s coming and who’s going on all four Daytime soap operas.

The Bold and the Beautiful:

The month of May saw several familiar soap opera faces pop up in the fictional Los Angeles fashion world. Sean Kanan brought bad boy Deacon Sharpe back home and Crystal Chappell (Gina, “Venice;” ex-Carly, “Days of our Lives;” ex-Olivia, “Guiding Light”) joined the cast as the partner of a long time recurring character. If you missed all the action, check out The Bold and the Beautiful Comings and Goings to find out who Chappell’s character is linked to. In addition, former “One Life to Live” star Nafessa Williams (ex-Deanna) turned up, as did former “As the World Turns” star Jon Hensley (ex-Holden).

Days of our Lives:
The revolving door is getting quite the work out over in Salem, as several more actors are on their way out. It seems Ian Buchanan (Ian), Sarah Brown (Madison) and Joe Mascolo (Stefano) are getting the boot. Charles Shaughnessy (Shane) is exiting as well, but he was only there for a short time to begin with, and Renee Jones (Lexi) will take her final bow in June, but that was her decision. There’s also a rumor going around that Peter Reckell (Bo) could be next to get the axe. It’s not all bad news though, as “Pretty Little Liars” star Brant Daugherty has been cast in a new role. Also, look for a blast from the past to return. Who is it? Check out the Days of our Lives Comings and Goings for the answer.
