The search for a new actress to take over the role of Days of our Lives Abigail Deveraux-DiMera is over. EW reports newcomer Marci Miller has been tapped to replace departing fan favorite Kate Mansi.

Miller has begun filming episodes and will debut this fall. Days of our Lives will be her first television credit, though she has film experience, appearing in The Aspect Ratio, Dog Bowl, Most Likely to Die, and is set to appear in Death Race 2050 and Children of the Corn: Runaway.

Kate Mansi, who made her DAYS debut in early 2011, announced her departure last winter. The actress recently revealed that June 24 will be her final episode.

It’s never easy for actors stepping into a popular role, but hopefully fans will give Marci Miller a chance to make the role her own.

    She actually looks like she could be Jack and Jen’s daughter. Not going to miss KM;s version of Abigail might actually start enjoying Chad without watching KM’S smug face.
