Vivian Alamain is a fan favorite baddie on “Days of Our Lives,” but viewers may no longer see its portrayer Louise Sorel play the part. Sorel opened up about a possible recast of her character. She joined the cast of the show in 1992 and left in 2000. She reprised her role once again in 2009 and 2017.
She’s been given another opportunity to reprise her role, but she might not be able to do so this time around. “I was given a week to return for a Period of time,” Sorel said. “It was too short notice. I love Vivian. Maybe Another time.”
A few months ago, there were rumors that Robin Strasser, who is set to appear on “Days of Our Lives” would play Vivian.

However, the actress was quick to dismiss claims and reminded everyone that not everything they find on the internet is true. She is indeed coming to Salem, but nobody knows if it is as Vivian or not.
Based on Strasser’s statements, it seems like she’s playing another role, plus, the show has not confirmed the recast. Recasting the role of Vivian isn’t something new on the show. Back in 1993, Marj Dusay was asked to play the role.
Sorel was born in Los Angeles, California and during her early years, she has gone through theatrical training at the “Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre in New York.”
