Wait. Wasn't she so bad that the last time Days tried this, that the scenes had to be reshot?
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.
I just added more info above, that's correct yes.

Alicia was there to do the "dry block" in the morning (when they briefly go through the scenes), but she would have stayed and played Chloe on air if Nadia was still not feeling well. Nadia, as you can see, was also already on call and ended up being able to tape the episodes that day.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Hopefully this is the case. That's not what the rumor was, though.
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.
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.
Maybe I was just so relieved that I didn't care, lol.

Word on the street is that she's Debra Liam ex wife and she's only on for 3 episodes..
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."
Thanks Jason! It's great to have someone so knowledgeable to rely on for accurate information!

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?
That is exactly what I think she will be doing.

If it's only 3 episodes, what's the big deal? Nothing to get worked up about..

I'm actually pretty happy about this. I don't care for the actress much and I obviously couldn't stand Courtney. But this means that she is only going to be around for 3 days. Every time there's a casting call for a real character I worry that she's going to get the job because of her history with the show. They kinda "owe" her for the Chloe mess.

She's going to reveal to someone that Liam is a psychopath and that Dannifer is in danger and then she will be gone. I wonder if she comes to them on her own or if they have to find her to save Daniel and/or Jennifer. That's about the only mystery involved in this obvious role.

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.
Hopefully this is the case. That's not what the rumor was, though.
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.
Oh, we simulposted and I didn't see this. Thanks.

Make EJ/Abby happen, DAYS!

Nooooooooo!

I was so excited that we avoided ALW's scenes when Nadia Bjorlin got better. I hated her on GH! I hope this is just a short stint!

I'm the "Days" historian and sneak peeks person, so I'll leave the AVI question to another poster. Even though I have my own website, I don't know too much about computer-tech stuff!!

Welcome to the board! Hope you have a lot of fun here.

Ed did just a few episodes as Leo, a friend of Bo's (maybe from Merchant Marines?). He lent them his boat when they were on the run from Hope escaping from prison (where she had been sentenced for attacking all the men of Salem as Nighttime Hope). :)

When I read the post I thought she might be Debra because of his conversation with Jennifer about her.She might provide details from the time they were married that lead the police to figuring out what he is doing to Jennifer,Daniel,and Nicole.
