Any sane person would probably leave Days of our Lives' Salem quicker than it takes to read this sentence. The place is a cesspool of outrageous drama, backstabbing shenanigans, unbelievable face swapping, and a lot of other "OMG" happenings. Basically, not the most idyllic place to hang one's hat! And while Claire Brady's sanity is always in question (it wasn't that long ago that she was released from Bayview Sanitarium), she seems to have figured out that Salem maybe isn't the greatest place for her, and she is set to leave town later this week.
According to official show teasers, Claire will be presented with an exciting opportunity on Thursday, August 19, and the character will leave Salem on Friday, August 20. While teasers like this don't always mean that a character will actually disappear from the canvas, a source close to the show confirmed to Soaps that Claire is indeed checking out, which, sadly, also spells the end for her portrayer, Isabel Durant.
Durant joined DAYS in August of last year, when Claire was released from the sanitarium and started a fresh life for herself in her hometown. The character was previously played by Olivia Rose Keegan, who wore Claire's shoes on-again, off-again from 2015 to 2020.
Fortunately, the writers have left the door open for Claire's return, and there's no telling when she and/or Durant will head back to the canvas. Be sure to keep reading Soap Central for updates as they come!
