Eileen Davidson returning to ‘Days’

Bo Brady might be on his way out of Salem, but guess who’s back?
Kristen Blake — the adopted daughter of Stefano DiMera — and Susan Banks!
Davidson, who last appeared on “Days” in 1998, said she is “thrilled” to be returning to Salem, saying she was “excited to revisit Kristen and who knows who else!”
Among the characters Davidson has played on “Days” includes Kristen Blake, Susan Banks, Sister Mary Moira Banks, Thomas Banks and Penelope Kent.
Ahhh, remember those days?
Along with her popularity on “Days,” Davidson originated “The Young and the Restless” role of Ashley Abbott — a role she began in 1982. She was fired from “Y&R” last month after a roughly four-year stint.
Apparently, the folks at Sony Pictures (distributor of both “Days” and “Y&R”) wanted her on both soaps simultaneously. But “Y&R” writers said no, so Sony terminated her “Y&R” contract and shifted her to “Days.”
