The rumblings are true. Kassie DePaiva (ex-Blair, One Life to Live) has been cast as Days of Our Lives' Eve Donovan. The soap has confirmed the move, noting that DePaiva will begin airing this summer.
"We are excited to welcome Kassie to the Days family. Stay tuned to find out how the return of Eve Donovan shakes things up in Salem!" said Co-Executive Producer Greg Meng in a statement.
Charlotte Ross, who originated witchy Eve and played the part from 1987 to 1991, was in talks with the soap about reprising the role back in November. However, a deal couldn't be worked out. So the soap decided to move forward with a recast.
The last time Eve was seen in Salem the character was departing for Africa with Frankie, who was about to begin work for a charity organization. But as viewers learned when Frankie returned to town in 2005, the romance didn't work out.
