‘Days of our Lives’ Comings & Goings: Zoey Swap Plus Stefan-Rex and Shin (Oh My)

Days of our Lives comings and goings promise a swap of lady lawyer Zoey Burge as Kelly Thiebaud gives the role over to Alyshia Ochse. Plus, there’s two returns, one new major character, and the exit of two fan-favorites. It’s a busy couple of weeks for DOOL with these latest casting updates and soap opera spoilers.

Days of our Lives Comings & Goings: Orpheus’ Daughter Swaps Faces

Right now, DOOL fans just met power-lawyer Zoey Burge, played by Kelly Thiebaud (from Station 19 and General Hospital). However, she sits in the role for about a month before Alyshia Ochse (from True Detective and lots of bit parts). Soon, we find out Zoey’s is Evan Frears’ (Brock Kelly), sister.

And that makes her the daughter of Orpheus (George DelHoyo). Days of our Lives spoilers say David’s auntie attorney Zoey soon files a custody suit to take the baby. Then, midway through May sweeps, Alysia takes over the role of Zoey Burge, but why?

Back when Kelly Thiebaud took the role (since Days of our Lives shoots so far ahead), she got a big shot at ABC’s Station 19. So, it looks like she gave up the role of Zoey for the prime time run. Watch for Zoey Burge’s face to change on May 14 (barring any pre-emptions).

DOOL Comings & Goings: Stefan DiMera’s Got a New Name & A New Shin in Salem

Days of our Lives comings and goings confirm Stefan pops up on Thursday, April 23, for a moment, and then in a more significant way the following week. But, the dead DiMera’s calling himself “Jake” and runs a garage, so it’s a whole bit of messy drama ahead.

Other Days of our Lives casting news introduces Li Shin (Remington Hoffman). He’s the son of DiMera board bigwig Mr. Shin and is in town to help decide the new CEO of the company. He’s got scenes with Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus), at first.

She’ll lose the CEO job, promise Days of our Lives spoilers. But, spotting Stefan’s handsome face in a store window reflection is enough of a consolation prize for his widow. The big question is whether she’ll fall for “Jake” who’s not a wicked billionaire…

Rex Brady Back to Days of our Lives – Tony & Anna Say Bye-Bye

Other Days of our Lives ins and outs confirm Rex Brady (Kyle Lowder) shows up in Paris where Sarah Horton’s (Linsey Godfrey) hiding out with the baby she stole. Will her cheating ex be the one that talks sense to Sarah and gets her back to Salem with little Rachel Black?

Also, Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) and his wife Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) pack their bags to slide out of town. But first, Days of our Lives spoilers say he’s part of the showdown with Gabi and Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) over the top job at DiMera.

Brace yourselves for a lot of casting activity at the NBC sudser for May sweeps. With un-Stefan back, Gabi’s sure to be happy. And as for Zoey Burge, wait for the reveal she’s the other kid Orpheus had from back in the day. Then, see Zoey swap faces next month.
