) will return to Days of our Lives later this month, marking her first appearance in Salem in over six months.
In her first on-screen scene, Celeste will square off with Tek over - what else? - Lexie. Boyd's alter ego is Lexie's mother through an affair with Stefano DiMera
. In recent months some fans have speculated that Stefano might not be as dead as everyone thinks he is.
DAYS's best-known Stefano, Joseph Mascolo
, is currently on-contract with CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful. A spokesperson for B&B recently denied that Mascolo was leaving the show.
From 1994 to 1999, Boyd was a contract player on Days of our Lives. But since 1999, the actress has appeared only on a recurring basis. She received heavy screen time during the Salem Stalker storyline in 2004.
Boyd first appears on March 30th. Her current stint is expected to last about one month.
