Wait. Wasn't she so bad that the last time Days tried this, that the scenes had to be reshot?
The scenes were reshot because Nadia was able to come back. I was never under the impression it had anything to do with her performance.

Wait a minute, she is dismissed because she played a character who was not well liked on a another soap? Quite honestly if her character is interesting and exciting on this soap and the actress does a fine job, I see no problem with this. There is a need of exciting female characters in the 30-something age group on this soap.

Hopefully this is the case. That's not what the rumor was, though.

She doesn't. She was absolutely terrible on GH.

Id say she comes back to reveal what a whack job her husband is. It is quite obvious Liam's days are numbered. I just dont get why the show went there with him. Are they that desperate for plot and can't come up with anything for Jennifer?

Sure you could be right. She could come , surprise us and we like her but this no different than other people who join the show and we judge them by their previous works. Either we are interested, hated it or it we don't care either way. Hopefully she's better this time around and so is her character.

I don't think I ever heard that rumor. But I also don't care if they had brought in Meryl Streep for those scenes. It was stupid of them to do them without Nadia.

That's is most likely correct, yes. Here's my post about it:

SOAP OPERA DIGEST ANNOUNCES ALICIA LEIGH WILLIS TO GUEST LATER THIS MONTH...POSSIBLY AS LIAM'S EX-WIFE, DEBRA

Additionally, Willis will most likely be playing Debra (whom Liam already said was his ex-wife). Here's the casting call from December 2013, which stated this: "A three-day principal role for Debra, a woman in her early 30s to 40s, blonde, blue-eyed, petite and fit. This character is rebuilding her life after a bad marriage."

I have the parking clearance for that day. Both Alicia and Nadia are listed on the call sheet. Alicia was there as a standby, in case Nadia could not tape, but Nadia was eventually able to, so they didn't need to use Alicia.

It specifically states Alicia was there to "dry block" only (which is what they do in the morning before they actually tape the scenes). Nadia was well enough later in the morning to actually do the episodes, but Alicia would have played Chloe if Nadia was still ill that day.

no clue who this is. Just curious what she could possibly do in the Liam storyline? Ex-wife who will come forward and tell everyone she divorced him b/c he's paranoid, possessive, and an all-around nutbag?

I agree that it was dumb of them to try and film those scenes without NB. I'm also surprised you never heard the rumor. It even came up again fairly recently, like earlier this month, someone mentioned NB having to go in sick, because ALW was just that bad. However, I don't remember the original source of the story, so I'm not sure if it was actually from a reputable source or a guess someone made that eventually became a rumor.

okay i obviously should read through the whole thread before i comment. Still think why she's coming is correct, just to out that he's a psycho with stalking tendencies.

That was my impression at the time, but Jason has said recently they didn't end up using her because NB came in to shoot. (?)

I always wanted to see her in a Chloe wig just for laughs.
