Hell hath no fury like Vivian Alamain will unleash over the death of her beloved nephew Lawrence (Michael Sabatino). Louise Sorel reveals to TV Guide Magazine what to expect when her alter ego heads back to fair Salem Oct. 30.
Can we safely assume Vivian is back with revenge in mind? That’s the plan. Carly has rudely stabbed Lawrence with a knife. I’m not sure why. He had some sort of illness or he turned into another person…I don’t quite understand the plot but it’s something like that. Carly will get caught in the murder but Vivian has her exonerated by having someone else confess to the crime.Vivian wants to be the one who tortures Carly.
Uh oh, it sounds like Carly (Crystal Chappell) had better gear up to be placed back in that coffin again!
Well we all know it's official, Louise Sorel is returning to Days of Our Lives to play the naughty but nice Vivian Alamain. It's been a wee bit too long since we saw her last in Salem. She has been responsible for some harsh activity in town, including, but not limited to: burying Carly Manning alive, parading around under another identity and just plain stealing men from right underneath her enemies' noses. In this flashback video, we see the year 1995, when Vivian was doing her best to attract the Greek boss Victor Kiriakis. It seems whatever Vivian wanted, Vivian got and there was nothing that was going to stand in her way – not even the wealthy Kate Roberts. READ MORE
USTH: During your original stint on DAYS, probably the thing that most fans would remember is that your character was buried alive by Louise Sorel’s character. Can we assume that Carly won’t let bygones be bygones? Do fans have good old-fashioned soap fireworks to look forward to between these two ladies?
CC: Absolutely. Both women are strong, smart, clever and unwilling to back down. So yes, you are going to see a lot of fireworks, and it is like the old-fashioned soaps.
Michael Fairman has a new interview with industry darling Louise Sorel, among other interesting tidbits in his bi-weekly column Soapside at Advocate.com. This time around Sorel says she plans to be "more docile" in dealings with the Days of Our Lives brass.
“We know how things go," she says. "They might say, 'Get her out of here.' This time I am going to be much more docile, because when they always used to see me coming, their eyes would cross. I so loved the work and the character. I would always say, 'Why am I doing this? Why am I doing that?' It’s hard in soaps. They work long hours, and it’s so hard to get this stuff out so fast. I think I can be a little annoying, and I am a perfectionist. Ken Corday [executive producer of Days] was the most generous producer in terms of people’s salary, and nobody paid people the way he did. Everything is more difficult now for everybody. Now it’s like eight years later and now there is a connection and respect. I don’t even know what the original reasons for my firing were. I have some ideas that I won’t get into. I don’t think they wanted to lose Vivian; I think other things were at work. In a funny way, I did not feel fired. I thought, Well, they are just getting rid of this character now. I was not a happy person when I left there. I was very sad and thrown by it, and I had a lot of months to prepare for it. But the day it happened, I lost it and and went to pieces. That’s life. You just move on.
