'Days of our Lives' Stars Judi Evans and Wally Kurth Bumped to Recurring Status?

Earlier this year, fans of Days of our Lives were excited to hear fan favorites Judi Evans (who plays Adrienne Johnson Kiriakis) and Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) were back on the contract with the NBC soap opera. According to a new story on about.com, both actors were informed yesterday they are being taken off contract once again.

In a possibly related Facebook post last night, Evans posted about her other job with Rose Hills Memorial Park. "So grateful to work at Rose Hills.....," she wrote.

"Being an actress can be a waiting game. For most, it's waiting tables. For all, it's waiting for the phone to ring," Evans explained in a 2008 interview, when it was revealed she was selling cemetery plots. "I have been lucky, better yet, blessed enough, to have worked on soap operas for over 20 years. With that being said, it has made me somewhat of a workaholic. I thrive when I'm busy, and make myself and my family crazy when I'm not busy. Waiting around for my manager or my agent to call is not my forte. When works slows, I want--no, I need--some kind of job to take on, and fast, before I make everybody crazy."

Kurth was recurring on both Days and ABC's General Hospital (as Ned Ashton) when he signed the contract with Days.

  1. I really fear the direction Days may be taking. Greg Vaughan is the latest to exit, among many before. The past few weeks the only thing of interest I have seen is the Abby Ben story, which of course will end soon with Abby and Chad together, which I am not a fan of, but rumors are that Kate is leaving the role of Abby. The week before Thanksgiving the show was completely unwatchable for me, and the new additions do not seem to improve anything. The actress who plays Ciara is awful. The scene at Brady's when she was with her niece was glaring how bad she was, when the young actress playing opposite her, with few lines of any significance, outshined her in a tiny role. From what I read Ciara is going to be a front burner character, and she can not act! I am really beginning to fear for what used to be a favorite soap.
