|Gabrielle Haugh will be taking over the role of Jade on Days next week.|
According to Soap Opera Digest, Searcy walked away from the role of her own accord. She recently appeared in a Lifetime movie, Mommy, I Didn't Do It, with another Days alum, Jen Lilley (ex-Theresa).
Since the Searcy exit rumors began, viewers have wondered whether or not the character would also be leaving the canvas. Apparently, at least for now, Days has a story planned that includes Jade.
Haugh only has a handful of credits on her IMDb page, but they include an upcoming film, The Long Home, with General Hospital guest star James Franco (ex-Franco).
Find out more about Haugh in the 2015 interview below.
Also on January 17, Greg Vaughan returns to Days as Eric Brady. Vaughan teased his comeback on Twitter: "Eric Brady from Prison to Salem, but his Return @nbcdays may be darker than your ready for? Or are you?! #january17th #days"
