Daytime casting news.

January gave the soap world news of fan favorite returns, fan favorite goodbyes and a big old question mark where the “OLTL” characters on “GH” are concerned. Keep up with all the casting activity.

The Bold And The Beautiful:

January saw a few familiar faces return to the fashion world. Joanna Johnson and Crystal Chappell reprised their roles of Karen and Danielle Spencer, while Andrew Collins popped up again as fashion reporter Jarrett. Meanwhile, former “Guiding Light” star Kara Mosley debuted as Maya, someone Dayzee (Kristolyn Lloyd) knew from Skid Row, while her ex-onscreen partner Lawrence Saint Victor stepped into a new role as well. Find out who his character is connected to in The Bold and the Beautiful Comings and Goings.

Days of our Lives:
John Black is at a crossroads, so he left Salem. That means his portrayer Drake Hogestyn will be off the canvas for a bit. Meanwhile, the show has reportedly sent out a slew of casting notices including that of bad teens, a hot woman at a bar and a dangerous looking prisoner. Sounds like Salem is going to be pretty interesting coming up. There’s one more key character to be cast that will be seen in May. Get the details in the Days of our Lives Comings and Goings.
