Sorkin Back to DAYS
Soap Opera Digest has learned that fan favorite Arleen Sorkin, who appeared as DAYS's Calliope from 1984 to 1990, and made brief returns in 1992 and February, 2006, will be back in May for a short run. "They just called me and asked if I wanted to do it!" she says. "I didn't really let it register, but now it's real! My dialogue? That I ever remembered lines is unbelievable! I emailed Leann [Hunley, Anna] and said, 'You have to work with me. My brain is Teflon.' " She reports to the set today, March 8.

Arleen (Calliope) is headed back to Salem in May. Arleen initially thought the call for her to come back had something to do with the passing of Frances Reid. “I thought they were going to do a funeral on the show for Frances. And if truly, they hadn’t called me, I would have been pissed! Because they didn’t call me for anybody’s funeral. But that’s not why they called me.”

Sorkin is looking forward to being reteamed with Leann Hunley, who played her on-screen boss two decades ago.

So far she booked for 6 shows, “And they want to book more, “ Arleen enthuses. “I don’t know this new guy (Gary Tomlin), but everybody loves him.”
