I don't think this casting had anything to do with Terrell's acting abilities. She was brought on as Arianna for Max and as a replacement for Chelsea. I'm sure Terrell screen tested with Darin Brooks. Unfortunately, Brooks left as Max and Arianna was unevenly matched with Brady. There was no chemistry between Terrell and Martsolf, despite what some people on here thought. Corday and Tomlin had to have noticed and when it apparent that Brady and Arianna would be the end game couple, maybe because of Arianne Zucker's upcoming maternity departure and that would stop any Brady and Nicole pairing, they decided to go along with Hartley, given her past with acting oppostie both Martsolf and Gering. It'll be interesting to see if lightening strikes twice like DAYS is hoping happens. I have my doubts.|
But I think it's ridiculous that some of the same posters that used to praise Terrell and talk about how she's decent, now all of a sudden claim she's lacking talent or holding up production. Where was all of this speculation just a few weeks ago before Hartley's news broke? There was none.
I'll miss Terrell. She was a good actress, but was just in a sucky role with a sucky pairing. Hopefully Hartley will come onto the show and give something to the Brady and Arianna pairing, and that'll probably be it, because I doubt the writing for Arianna will change and she'll still be a boring character played by a different actress. It's the pairing of Brady and Arianna that will make the character interesting, not the actress.
