Days of Our Lives Places Casting Call for New Black Female Contract Role

Posted September 10, 2014
by Daytime Confidential

Is a new face heading to Salem? Days of Our Lives has put out a casting call for "Maya, a 25-30 year old black female.

Maya is described as smart and drop-dead gorgeous. The character is also graceful and self-confident which makes her very bewitching.

While Maya is a dedicated and determined professional, she has a vulnerable side. This makes it tough for others to get close to her. The character doesn't appear to have any ties to anyone on the canvas and is a contract role.

Just what the show needs. Another character with no ties to anyone in Salem. :rolleyes: She'll probably last as long as Cameron did

I posted this in the social media thread but I'll repeat it here, or at least paraphrase it.

The last line of the call says the character does not appear to have ties to Salem. That is, as is typical, pretty vague. Does that mean the individual who put the casting call together doesn't know, ie does not appear. Or is this a clue that the character will appear as a "stranger" as first, only to find out later she's the product of one of Stefano's trysts, or maybe Clyde's.

Oh perfect. Exactly what we need. Another new and useless character.

How long will we have to wait until we find out she's in some way related to a member of the Carver family?

Shouldn't their casting calls for all females read, "[insert name here] will be briefly paired with a doctor, who will destroy her character until she is an unrecognizable shell of her former self. Said doctor will eventually determine that she is no longer suitable for his godliness, after which he will berate her and treat her like trash."?

Days is in desperate need for some diversity so I don't have a problem with this character coming on board. But we also want to see characters like, Lucas, Nicole, Kayla, Marlena and John being given real stories. So make this character a new love interest for Lucas and you'll killing two birds with one stone, adding new characters and at the same time giving a much love character of Lucas a storyline.

Does Maxine have a son or a daughter? I've blocked out the memories of Maxine/Dannifer, but I vaguely recall her having an adult child.

If the chick can act and can spin gold out of shit,more power to her. It's apparent there is a trend away from writing for certain characters, so might as well bring in someone good.

i thought there was a mention of her having a son at some point (unless I'm getting Maxine & Epiphany mixed up).

I don't know who's in charge of their budget but it looks like they only care for their 50th to be as cheap as possible. Poor "Days".

Could this character be connected to Eric's past? Maybe she's somehow connected to Eric's Congo backstory. I've been dying for Eric's past to be explored. I hope they're doing it finally.

Days can(and has already) really benefit from having new blood on the show. I would prefer that past characters return or older characters get more of a spotlight but with the way the writing is those character's would probably turn insufferable after 2-3 months.

I mean just look at the show now. The only characters who aren't rage-inducing are Ari Jr (who's a baby), Paige (who's a wet blanket), JJ (for now at least), Hope (because she's been backburned for so long), and Marlena (see Hope).

If writing new characters into the show means we get to avoid having the vets ruined then so be it.

That thought occurred to me too.
