Melrose Place star Vanessa Williams has joined the cast of NBC soap opera Days of our Lives as the new Valerie Grant, a character last seen in 1982. The 53-year-old Williams is 12 years younger than Tina Andrews, the actress who originated the role in 1975. The late Diane Sommerfield was last to play the role in 1981-1982.

Willams revealed the news on Instagram: "This month #VanessaWilliams joins the cast of #daysofourlives @nbcdays @nbctv Don't miss your girl back in #primetime Thanks for all the Love and support! #moretocome"

Look for Valerie to cross paths with her ex, Abe (James Reynolds), and his son, Theo (Kyler Pettis).

Williams is scheduled to make her first Days appearance on October 25. The character was last seen in 1982. She was seen last year in the Indie Series Award nominated ensemble cast of The Bay. She played Rhonda Blair on Melrose Place.
