Days Of Our Lives spoilers – Cady McClain Recently Stepped Into The Role Of Jennifer Horton
Cady is married to Jon Lindstrom who plays Kevin/Ryan at General Hospital and her commute is definitely a short one! That was one reason she had a soft landing on the NBC sudser saying, “I live 15 minutes away from the studio. I don’t have kids, but we do have our little dogs, Jon is working on GH, so we already know how the protocol and shooting on a set with Covid works, and how to run our lives, so it was really easy to say yes. Obviously, the show is wonderful and the character is iconic.”
She also said that she wasn’t sure if she would ever act again, “so to be treated with such value and warmth and kindness and support by the production team was just so unexpected.”

She went on to say that she was pleased to work with Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans) and Drake Hogestyn (John Black) as well as her on-screen husband Matthew Ashford who plays Jack Deveraux.
It sounds like she has had a great time immersing into the daytime waters saying, “oh, my God, I laughed when I got on set. I laughed so hard. They were just so funny and so great and so warm and so kind. It was just one of the best days. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I’m so grateful to be back at work, to have some sense of normalcy.”
