The search for Days of our Lives’ new Abigail Deveraux is on! The NBC soap recently issued a new character breakdown for the role, which is expected to begin filming at the end of April.

Though we’re still disheartened at Kate Mansi’s decision to leave DAYS after five years in the role, we understand the show must go on. As DAYS looks for it’s newest star to take over the role of an important legacy character, they lay out Abby’s characteristics in the new breakdown:

“She comes from a loving home, despite her father lack of consistency in her life. Abigail looks innocent and young but can often seems more mature in essence than her 26 years because of the difficulties she’s experienced.  She’s made plenty of mistakes in her life, but she tries to learn from them and has compassion for others. She’s fiercely loyal and protective of her family, and she has a spark and youthful joy that endears her to everyone she meets.”

Days of our Lives is on a production hiatus for another couple of weeks, but hopefully we’ll hear news about the casting soon!
