Days of our Lives comings and goings confirm Victoria Konefal is out as Ciara Brady, so will Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) get a new wife on the NBC soap? The revolving door of DOOL’s cast spins faster by the day as many actors exit. So, it’s hard to keep track of who’ll be left in Salem when the dust settles.
Days of our Lives Spoilers: Big Final Story for Victoria Konefal as Ciara Brady
DOOL wrote a massive story for Ciara Brady in the weeks leading to Victoria’s exit after more than 2 1/2 years in the role. Remember, she was a recast that came on board the NBC sudser in 2017. Before that, Lauren Boles was in the role of Ciara for seven years, exiting the part as a tween.
Then, Days of our Lives cast Vivian Jovanni in the role for two years when they did a SORAS (soap opera rapid aging syndrome) turn on Ciara Brady. So, Victoria was the second “grown-up” Ciara. Now, she’s in a life-or-death adventure with her husband, Ben Weston.
Last week, on Days of our Lives, Ciara married Ben. Then, someone firebombed their wedding to kidnap Ben. The question is – was the culprit seeking revenge on Ciara or Ben? The likelier candidate seems to be the reformed Necktie Killer, Ben. So, how will she exit the soap?
Will DOOL Kill Ciara – Legacy Death Seems Unlikely But…
Every day lately seems to bring one more Days of our Lives cast exit. The late-2019 contract negotiations must have been brutal, given all the confirmed firings and walk-outs. And given how Victoria phrased her departure, it sounds strange. Perhaps they couldn’t strike a deal.
Recently, the actress said she would “love the opportunity to continue working” on Days of our Lives. But, VK said she wouldn’t be back as a “full-time cast member.” So, doesn’t that sound like she wanted to stay but could not for some reason? And where does that leave her scene partner?
Now, the next question is whether Days of our Lives might “kill” off Ciara Brady. Remember, death’s rarely a permanent condition in Salem. But, it could be that something terrible happens to Ciara at the hands of the person that snatched Ben Weston. So, will she die?
Recast Wife for Newlywed Ben Weston on Days of our Lives?
In the past, DOOL’s killed off other legacy family offspring. Remember, Will Horton (Chandler Massey) was dead for a while. EJ DiMera’s alive, but still not back to rights. So, yes, they certainly could kill Ciara – at least for a while. So, will Ben exit too?
For now, there is no Days of our Lives chatter about Rob Wilson exiting as Ben Weston. With him staying, that opens the door for a recast of Ciara Brady. Remember how they swapped Abigail DiMeras? However, it’s hard to imagine someone else as Ciara given Victoria’s chemistry with Rob.
But, longtime Days of our Lives viewers know that the soap has no problem killing off people, resurrecting them, or swapping out actors. So, as we reported several weeks ago, Victoria Konefal’s out as Ciara Brady. But, that doesn’t mean Ciara’s leaving Ben Weston. Wait and see on the NBC sudser.
