Former AMC star Chrishell Stause has joined the Days cast but still the details about the character are being kept secret. In an recent interview with ABC Soap in Depth she assures that the new role is very different from her AMC character Amanda:
"I'm really excited about the character," she tells In Depth, before adding, "which I can't talk about yet."
Getting a gig on DAYS means we won't be seeing her in Pinevalley anytime soon. Stause shares her thoughts on that by saying:
"But I love AMC. It will always have a place in my heart. I would never say no in the future, but for now it doesn't contractually work out for me."
