The secret is out. Patrika Darbo is the yesteryear star returning to Days of Our Lives.
Darbo began taping scenes as the manipulative Nancy Wesley, a role she last portrayed in 2005, on November 13.
Look for Nancy to return to support her daughter, Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin), who resurfaces in Salem on Jan 4. Her first appearance will be in February.
Since leaving Days, Darbo has focused on film and primetime work. The actress, in fact, guest starred on the final episode of Desperate Housewives as Jean, the seamstress fitting Renee's (Vanessa Williams) wedding gown.
