Kassie DePaiva is leaving “Days of Our Lives” after playing the role of Eve Donovan for five long years. Before her final episode airs, the actress took the time to thank all her fans and supporters. She sent out a “big love letter” through a post on Tweeter.
“Thank you soap opera fans for all your love and support. On New Year’s Eve, once again, Eve Donovan will leave town after wreaking havoc,” DePaiva said.
“I just want to send a big love letter out to all of you that have watched and supported me over the years,” she added.
DePaiva continued by revealing how she loved working in Daytime and that it has been such an honor and a pleasure to work on “Days of Our Lives” for the past five years.
She described Eve as an “interesting and challenging” character to portray. But since actors can’t write their own storylines, she finds it both a “challenge and a delight” to find out where the writers are taking her character’s story.
The veteran actress hopes the viewers have enjoyed the journey as much as she did. She ended the tweet with, “I wish all of you a Joyous holiday season. Be kind and loving to all.”
