It's about time they hired someone. I am a little concerned though because this looks more like a SORAS Ciara. Abigail was always a blonde like her mom. I sure hope she is a good actress but she really is very pretty. I wonder if she will be paired with Chad. I think they should have tried for a blonde especially since Gabi and Kensie both have dark hair too.
There goes my Lindze Letherman suggestion!
This show has a pension for brunnete dark features ingenues. At least it's a flip on the blonde blue eye fake tits norm. She's hot so I hope she can act, but since it's Days she'll be able to do w/o the latter if she doesn't have it initially.
Abby has been played by brunettes before and they both sucked (Megan Corletto, Jillian Clare). Ashley Benson and the Kettner twins were my favourite Abbys. Not excited for a dark-haired Abby but perhaps she'll dye her hair blonde for the role.
Now just bring JACK back and I'll be happy!!!
Also, I hope they stick to Abby's characterization in the recent "A Secret in Salem" novel. She works as a photojournalist for the Spectator's online division, specializing in celebrity stories.
speaking of the novel...say john and marlena return does that mean we have to read these novels???? has anyone read them are they any good should i buy them?
Its about time if her mom is there abby should be there....a different girl going through the problms mom and dad are having..very rebelious..
I read that Lexie and Abe will be getting a little screen time...and not to prop up other characters. Here's hoping......but please don't let it be the merry go round of Lexie having an affair. Abe has never had an affair...how unfair.
I don't have a problem with a brunette either as they have in the past as AllistairCrane pointed out. I think many of the fans associate Matthew Ashford with the role of Jack and since Jack is brown-haired, I think they wanted to have the offspring resemble the father as opposed to the mother. Like when Jillian Claire portrayed Abby, I believe Jenn and Jack were estranged so it gave her an excuse to rebel against Jenn and built momentum towards Jack returning (as seeing Abby reminded me of Matthew Ashford) to get back together with Jenn, be carted off as a happy couple and when ratings decline, bring them back with the SAME reunion story! Why can't couples simply be happy? This recycling of stories makes Jack appear like such a douche and he's changed for the better through the years. Why can't Jack and Jenn investigate stories and get in trouble but still be a happy couple? Why not have them linked to Bo and Hope as they are cops?
ya notice that the new Abbey coulda been the new Gabi? Just sayin.
This is not boding well for my new pet couple Chad and WIll. Now there are two brunette girls their age that they will have to date........ Girls leave them alone and give the audience what it wants!
I agree. She looks like Hernandez. Odd choice.
Yeah, if they wanted another Hernendez sibling why not keep Lindsay Hartley?
Does anyone know anything about this girl? Has she done anything before this?
Wondering what story they will come up with for Abby. As far as a romantic interest, Chad is the only person I can see her dating. Will is her cousin and no one else on the show is really age appropriate for her.
