Soap Opera Digest, DAYS has replaced Natalia Livingston's character of Taylor Walker with her former GENERAL HOSPITAL castmate, Tamara Braun. This comes as quite a surprise, especially given that the show proudly publicized the hiring of Livingston several months ago.
Several weeks ago, Taylor Walker returned to Salem after an eleven year absence. As played by Livingston, she has been sweet, kind, down-on-her-luck, and suddenly in love with E.J. Dimera. One can only speculate the reasons for this change. But based on Braun's Emmy winning run as Ava on DAYS back in 2008, we can expect that Taylor will be more edgy, tough, and a force to be reckoned with that can rival Nicole and Sami.
What do you think of this move? Was it wise to replace Livingston so quickly? Will it be strange to see Braun back in Salem as a different character (along with all the other actors that have played dual roles)? Do you think Taylor is an asset to life in Salem? Let us know in the comments below!
