"Days of Our Lives" fans may not be too happy to know that Eileen Davidson who played major character Kristen DiMera will be gone soon.
Soap Opera Digest reported on Tuesday that the actress is set to reprise her role as Ashley Abbott in "The Young and the Restless," the show she started her soap opera actress career with.
"They has been reaching out for quite a while and wondering what I wanted, so the deal we made suits my life very well," told Eileen Davidson to the publication.
She reportedly is "really happy" with the decision.
"I've put in a lot of years in this medium, which I don't take for granted, so I'm very grateful," added Eileen Davidson.
Currently, the actress is completing the 12-week story arc at "DOOL." Watch out for her in the early September when Ashley Abbott makes a thrilling return to "The Young and the Restless."
Meanwhile, "The Young and the Restless" fans are wondering about the fate of Doug Davidson's character Paul Williams. After getting shot by Austin, Paul has been fighting for his life in the hospital. Finding out that Dylan is Paul's long lost son, it was thought he could be the donor. But later it was revealed that even Dylan can't save Paul. The character's health is continuously deteriorating. Several media outlets are now speculating if Paul is fated to die resulting in the actor's shocking exit.
There could be two scenarios. Either Paul's family finds a donor who could save him, or he dies after bidding an emotional goodbye to them.
According to Celebrity Dirty Laundry "if a major character like Paul Williams is set to be killed off, we hear rumblings about it in advance." But there has been none. Fans will have to hang in there to see what comes next. However, it is suggested that they prepare for the worst as Jill Farren Phelps loves to surprise her viewers.
