Eva Swan cast as Kristen Look-alike

Several weeks ago, a casting call announced that "Days" was looking for a Kristen Look-alike for November sweeps: "30 - 40 year old GORGEOUS BLONDE. Must be 5'7" and wear a size 2-4 dress. Must have blonde hair two-four inches past her shoulders and bear a striking resemblance to Eileen Davidson...ONE DAY PRINCIPAL ROLE."

Now comes word that Eva Swan has been cast in the role. Swan posted the news on her IMDB blog, and also stated that it could possibly become a recurring role. Wonder what this Kristen Look-alike will be up to in November?? Fans can only speculate until then...

Here is Swan's post: "My La TV debut is a long time coming. Boy oh boy, I tell ya. I got the good news this afternoon from my agent about booking a possible recurring role on Days of Our Lives...I auditioned for Marnie Saitta in February when I was...sick with the flu, But nevertheless very, very skinny - thanks, Flu! I did my scene and Marnie just flat out told me that I'd never get cast in this role, or probably any role, because I look too much like one of their main stars. I didn't know who she was talking about, but I appreciated her candor...Suddenly last week I get a breakdown for a lookalike to this exact star for "Days."

I wonder if she originally tried out for the role that Chrishell ended up getting.

On the role she got, I wonder if Kristen is going to try to pass this woman off on the video and pay her to actually act like she and Eric were in a sexual relationship together....

I know this doesn't make sense on some levels, but I wonder if Susan or another alter ego is returning. Maybe they don't want Eileen in the dual role this time, since that takes so much more time to tape.

Some of her pictures on Google Image really do look just like Eileen Davidson. Sometimes she looks like a cross between ED and Jen Lilley. Why would this become recurring? That is just odd.

I'd take 'recurring' with a grain of salt. A lot of times it's announced that an actor has been cast in a recurring role on a soap and then they only appear in a few episodes.

I can see that happening. In the blog she says the character is a drug addict. So, Kristen probably offers to help her out and give her money if she agrees to say that it's her.

When I first glanced at the title, I thought it read "Bella Swan". I was about to say WTH.

Anyway, very interesting!

They were for a 17-year-old high school girl named Kira. And I thought: surely, they don't want me to play a 17-year-old version of this woman.

New friend for JJ?

She really does look a LOT like Eileen here. I can see why Marnie told her that.

But at the same time, they're cutting from Theresa scenes to JJ's little friend who looks like a mousier version of her. That always throws me off.

If they put a wig and teeth on her, she could pass for anything. The woman in the video thing is a possibility, although can this actress really pass for the woman in the video? Maybe the show will reedit it and have her face partially shielded. This is going to be really interesting regardless.

i hope Days doesn't fire her before she starts for posting all that info. Or did she already film? Well anyway, sounds interesting. I agree with those above who think Kristen's going to pay this woman to claim she's the one in the video.

That's exactly what I was thinking. When the truth about Kristen and Eric comes out, Kristen will probably hire this woman to pretend she had sex with Eric. Also, if (and it's a big IF) Kristen does end up pregnant and makes this woman come forward and admit it was her, then the paternity of Kristen's child would (temporarily) not be in question. I could totally see Kristen trying to make that work.

Makes it sound like Kristen is going to use her character pretty much the same way she and Steffy used Susan the first go round. Step one - find a needy, clueless woman who looks like you. Step two - use her as a doppelganger to hide your evil deeds. Step three - throw her under the bus if things go wrong. On that note, I could definitely see Kristen trying to make everyone believe she's the one in the video.
