Crystal Chappell: Heading Back to Days of Our Lives

at . Comments

Guiding Light may find a new home after it gets booted off CBS in the fall.

But Crystal Chappell won't be moving along with it; the actress has found a new home.

Chappell  is returning to Days of Our Lives as Carly Manning, a role she played in the early 1990s.

Crystal spoke to TV Guide Magazine about the big switch:

It’s been 16 years since I played Carly and she is probably a very different person now. It’s an opportunity to go back and reestablish something, and at the same time reinvent it. I look back at Days as an experience that was lovely and romantic but also, because it was my first big job, the whole thing was overwhelming, actually.

I’m older and wiser now and I’m looking forward to going back and giving it another shot. This happened so quickly that I’m reeling. My head and my heart are still with GL right now. I ’m still here! We’re shooting until the first week of August. The day the Days deal was finalized was the day of our last cast photo at GL, so it was kind of weird. And of course I couldn’t say anything about the new job.

Days of Our Lives Quotes

Lucas, I raised you to be a better liar than that.

Deimos: I believe that the younger generation in this family have been handed everything on a silver platter, and they don't appreciate it.
Maggie: By younger generation, you must mean Sonny.
Deimos: All right, fine. Let's start with Sonny. I'm trying to work with him, Maggie. I've just given him a very important position in the company and instead of being grateful for the opportunity, he's being an oversensitive, temperamental pain in my neck. But at least he's still here. Brady, on the other hand, he's taken off, abandoned the family, Titan. He's left me all alone to deal with the Hernandez family on my own.
Maggie: Well, there's an easy solution to the Dimera and the Hernandez families. Just bow out.
Deimos: I do that and I lose face.
Maggie: With whom?
Deimos: With everyone. Except Nicole. She's taken off too.
Maggie: And to think I naively thought that maybe I'd gotten through to you the last time we had a serious conversation. Let me ask you a question. Has doing things your way gotten you anywhere?
