"It was more shocking than anything, and it was the last thing that I thought would happen," the Emmy winner tells AfterBuzz TV of the shocking plot development.
"I was really shocked, and all of a sudden I was coming back. It was just extremely sad. It’s going to be a very sad week on Days, but it's very, very sad, because a lot of people were affected by it as people, as well. So I think that overall, you guys are going to have a very dramatic week of Days. Everyone was very sad about it."

Fantasy Island remake in the works at ABC with a female lead
Written by Sheldon Turner, the new take goes further in shaking up the original concept — about a tropical island where people pay to go and live out their fantasies — than the 1998 revival, also on ABC. Gone is the island where both series were set, with Fantasy Island as the name of a company that designs and executes fantasies for clients. In another major change, the enigmatic Fantasy Island owner Mr. Roarke, played by Ricardo Montalban and Malcolm McDowell in the two previous versions, will be a woman. The new Fantasy Island centers on a brilliant, dynamic and sexy woman who runs a San Francisco-based company that provides clients with his or her most intimate, dark or outlandish fantasy. Like the original series, each episode is expected to chronicle two fantasies, with an overarching serialized arc involving Roarke and her personal life.
