The Young and the Restless (Y&R) star Judith Chapman is finally opening up about her return to the hit NBC daytime soap, Days of Our Lives! The actress, who is best known for her role as Gloria Bardwell on The Young and the Restless, is finally opening up about heading back to her daytime television roots. The actress is also known for her role as Anjelica Deveraux on DOOL.
Apparently, Judith won’t be coming back as her character Anjelica. Instead, she will be playing a brand new character by the name of Diana Cooper. Diana is actually Leo’s (played by actor Greg Rikaart) mother. (Her Y&R son)

And while preparing for SPIRIT…I took a side trip to LOS ANGELES to play another Ghostly Apparition on DAYS OF OUR LIVES…HALLOWEEN…..APPROACHES!! DON’T MISS IT.”
