Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe), Tamara Braun (Taylor), and Bren Foster (Quinn) have all been let go from Days of Our Lives.† These cast cuts are part of the changes that DAYS Executive Producer Ken Corday talked about in the June 14, 2011 issue of Soap Opera Digest. The firings of the three stars are in addition to Crystal Chappell (Carly) and Louise Sorel (Vivian) being let go.
Longtime DAYS fans recall that Nadia Bjorlin made her debut on the show as Chloe Lane back in 1999.† She and Philip were high school sweethearts, but she eventually married Brady Black in 2005.† Bjorlin returned to the show in 2007, and Chloe got involved with Philip, Lucas, and Daniel in the span of three years. This year she really got a chance to show off her acting chops with some Emmy-worthy material when Chloe had postpartum depression. Hopefully Chloe will be reunited with her son Parker and perhaps start a new life with Philip.
In addition to portraying Ava Vitali in 2008, Daytime Emmy Award-winning actress Tamara Braun was recast as Taylor Walker in April. Unfortunately many fans didn't warm up to the actress in the role and strongly felt she was miscast. She replaced another Daytime Emmy Award-winning actress, Natalia Livingston, who made her DAYS debut earlier this year.
Bren Foster debuted as Quinn a month ago and quickly bedded Chloe. It was just revealed that Quinn is Vivian's son and he is going to blackmail Chloe into becoming a prostitute. However, the Quinn/Vivian storyline and the prostitution storyline will soon come to an end with the exits of all actors involved.
To keep up with Nadia Bjorlin, visit her official website, "like" her on Facebook, or follow her on Twitter. You can also follow Tamara Braun on Twitter and Bren Foster on Twitter. Best of luck to all three actors in their future endeavors. No final airdates have been announced as of yet.
