"A few days after wrapping DAYS, I got a call to go to NY for a handful of episodes of As the World Turns," Evans posted in her blog. "Now this is getting fun. Just when you think, 'What will I do next?'... something surprises you. Allowing yourself to be open and ready for an opportunity I think is partly the key to success."
Evans began a five-year run as Sierra in December 2000. Much of her time with the long-running CBS soap was on a recurring basis, though her final year with As the World Turns was as a contract player. Evans' last appearance in Oakdale was on October 10, 2005.
Sierra will not be returning to Oakdale alone. She'll be joined by daughter Lucy, played by Sarah Glendening. Glendening was last on As the World Turns in May 2009.
Evans will first air on Days of our Live on June 17, and she'll make her first Oakdale appearance just over one month later -- on July 21. The is no word on how long fans can expect to see the actress stick around. However, after As the World Turns ends in September, Evans will once again appear on Days of our Lives.
