Kassie DePaiva Returns to DAYS OF OUR LIVES


A familiar face resurfaces when Kassie DePavia returns to DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Eve Donovan! In their new issue, Soap Opera Digest is reporting that she will appear in the episode scheduled to air on Thursday, Aug. 3.

“I was sitting up in the Catskills last winter when the phone rang,” DePaiva revealed. “I looked over and saw that it was Marnie [Saitta, DAYS’ casting director]. We talked for about 20 minutes and then she said, ‘They’re writing a quick little story arc. It’s one episode. Would you be interested?’”

DePaiva took over the role of Eve back in 2014 and she came and went a few times over the years with her last appearance being in August 2020 when Eve abducted Ben and tried to brainwash him back into being a serial killer. While the actress thought her alter ego was sent to prison, Eve was actually sent to a mental institution to get the help she so desperately needed.

This is where she will run into Harris, who has also been sent to Bayview. The two characters share some unfortunate history together as back in the late ‘80s, Harris was a jock who treated Eve terribly, making a bet with his friends to see who could sleep with her first. Of course, back then, the role of Eve was being played by Charlotte Ross, who originated it in 1987.

But DePaiva was already familiar with Steve Burton (Harris) from back in the day when they were both stars on ABC Daytime — him as Jason on GENERAL HOSPITAL and her as Blair on ONE LIFE TO LIVE. And while it’s only a brief return this time around, if Eve manages to get her life back together, perhaps she could rejoin Salem society once more! In soaps, anything is possible!
