hmmm....i'm still on the fence about this one. I watched OLTL once it went online (well some of it) and thought she was pretty good. Trying to believe she's CS's daughter though will be a stretch though.


At least she isn't a Kristen recast?

Ugh does this mean Jen and Dan are endgame? I was hoping she'd be a real love interest for him, not an obstacle

MEMO TO WRITERS: I don't want --- nor do I consider --- Daniel and Jennifer to be a rooting couple!!! They aren't a supercouple the same way Bope and Jarlena are!!!

She is WAY to old to play CS's daughter and so not a good casting for Eve..ugh ..forget the trouble making siblings and bring Andrew back instead! annoyed!

She is way too old to play her and its not like Ross is forgettable in the role. She pretty much made the role as she grew up on the show.

Anyone have any clips they can post so people can see some of her better work?

I wonder why the Donovan family is the one they're beefing up. I'm all for it if CS is involved, though I am not a Patsy Pease fan. How about the Black family? Belle?

I've already gone through all of the stages with this one and now I'm just gonna say it is a good move. The story was obviously written and they approached Charlotte Ross to return and she couldn't do it when they needed her. KDP is a fantastic actress and Eve fits onto the canvas perfectly. It will be very weird if they bring Shane in, but other than that I don't think it will really matter that she's 6 years older than Charlotte.

I still hope this leads to Shane and Kim coming to town. Andrew too. Lets focus on the Donovans for a while. I didn't think she would come in until Sami was gone, but summer sounds good. There is so much for Eve to do in town that I'm all for this. Still my wish would have been for Charlotte to return, but I'll deal. The only thing upsetting to me is that CR sent that tweet saying she would return one day :(

Kassie a fabulous actress,but the tiny age difference between her and Charlie makes her as Eve not believable.

This will take some getting used to. Maybe the makeup dept. Can make it alittle more plausible . It's possible the writers have finally realized dannifer is the worst pairing on soaps and they are giving Daniel a totally new love interest by summer. So long as he's not involved with ericole I don't care who they pair him with.

Now it makes sense why she's following Charles Shaughnessy. The big disappointment for me is that Shawn Christian is the other one she's following on twitter. I'm just tired of story revolving around him and I had hoped her joining Days would have been to enhance other storylines.

I'm just glad Charlotte Ross isn't playing the character! I can't stand Charlotte so this is a win-win for me.

I hope she ends up with James Scott, she's a strong leading lady, and the character Eve would fit as Dimera.
