Fans of NBC's Days of our Lives have been taken on quite a casting roller coaster in recent months, and the dramatic ride has just taken another startling turn: Kate Mansi is reportedly exiting the role of Abigail Deveraux.
Serial Scoop reports that the actress, who's recently been involved in a whirlwind storyline that has had Abigail in a front burner position for the past several months, has already finished taping her last scenes and will depart the canvas in May.
Over the past several months, Abigail has seen her fair share of drama. First she was held hostage by her serial killer boyfriend, Ben (Robert Scott Wilson), and this week she's faces Chad (Billy Flynn) with the emotional reveal that her son, Thomas, belongs to him.
So how will Mansi's upcoming exit impact the lovers' story? It looks like fans will have to wait and find out, as a DAYS rep was unavailable for comment regarding the status of the actress, who took on the role of Jennifer's (Melissa Reeves) daughter in 2011.
