Days of Our Lives spoilers reveal that Kayla Johnson (Mary Beth Evans) has been on the show for decades. The character and actress are among one of the fans’ favorites. Even though Evans loves her job and playing Kayla, there are some changes she would like writers to make. Find out what the actress said she wants to happen with Kayla.
Days Of Our Lives Spoilers – More Comedy In Soap
DOOL spoilers reveal that Evans spoke to Soap Opera Digest about the character of Kayla. The actress began playing the part in 1986 and remains part of the soap to this day. There have been times when Kayla has been given major storylines. Other times, fans don’t see her much while the focus is on other Salemites.
One change that Kayla would like to see is more comedy on DOOL. The actress specifically remembers one scene that she absolutely loved.
“I’ve really enjoyed the times that we’ve done funny things and wish there was more of that. I remember when Steve [Johnson, played by Stephen Nichols] and Kayla were trapped in the chemical room and were a little high from that. I recently did a little drunk scene with EJ [DiMera, played by Dan Feuerriegel]. I wish there was more comedy.”
DOOL Spoilers – Bring Back Johnson Kids
As for what Kayla is lacking right now, the actress quickly admitted that it’s Steve and Kayla’s children. Joey Johnson (formerly played by James Lastovic) is no longer in Salem. Stephanie Johnson (last played by Shelley Hennig) is also not on the soap anymore.
Kayla is a stepmother and mentor to Steve and Ava Vitali’s (Tamara Braun) son, Tripp Johnson (Lucas Adams). However, the actress and fans would like to see one or both of Kayla’s kids come back on the canvas.
