DOOL Spoilers – Mellisa Reeves Is Not The Only Actor To Exit Post Covid-19 Shutdown
Days of Our Lives Reeves exit comes on the tail of follow castmate Kristian Alfonso who recently announced that she was leaving the role of Hope Brady, a role she had held since 1983. Kristian left after being asked to take an extended leave, much like some of the other actors have had exited and have returned. Could Reeves exit be tied to a request to be off-screen for a few months like Alfonso? Perhaps Reeves agrees that the show isn’t like it used to be and decided to walk off the set? Has Reeves been under pressure because of her stance against the Black Lives Matter Movement?
Whatever the reason for her exit, seeing someone new in the role of Jennifer Horton will take a little bit of getting used to. However, Cady is sure to make Jennifer her own and win over fans in no time.
