Days Of Our Lives fans are going to say goodbye to another Salem resident. Last year, it was reported that Vivian Jovanni had left the NBC soap opera and was no longer filming new scenes. However, details about her last air date or how Ciara Brady would exit were not revealed. Finally, there are details and her departure date is coming up soon.
DOOL spoilers are ahead. Do not continue reading unless you want to know what to expect next on the long-running series.
In December 2016, Serial Scoop interviewed Vivian Jovanni. The topic was her leaving the soap opera. The actress revealed it was a mutual decision and she was excited about her future. However, what does this mean for Ciara Brady? Will she leave Salem or will another actress take her place? When will she film her final scene and how will Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) handle the news?
Jovanni’s final air date on Days Of Our Lives is May 26. Her exit storyline will involve Wyatt (Scott Shilstone) and Theo (Kyler Pettis). As fans discovered, it isn’t a coincidence that Wyatt and Ciara connected online. Theo told Wyatt about the college student. At first, it seemed like Wyatt was a good guy. However, he then started sending suspicious text messages. Later, it was revealed that Wyatt doesn’t share Ciara’s interests and is more interested in her being a Kiriakis heir.
DOOL spoilers from Soap Central reveal that Theo Carver will blurt out the truth. The website also stated that Ciara Brady will confront Wyatt and Theo. It is all too much for her and she ends up making a hasty decision. Many fans believe that this decision will be Ciara leaving Salem.
However, Jason47′s Facebook page revealed that the part might be recast. A leaked audition tape featuring Brianna Chomer was posted. The video has been removed, but the Facebook page posted the dialogue. It is between Chomer’s character, “Mia” and her mother. A lot of people think “Mia” is a code name for Ciara, but reading the dialogue, the mother doesn’t sound like Hope Brady. Another issue is that Mia talks about a little brother who died. Ciara did have a brother who passed away, Zack Brady, but he died before Ciara was born.
There are a few reasons why some fans believe Brianna was auditioning for the role of Ciara on Days Of Our Lives. The audition mentions motorcycles and how Mia’s father loved them. He is deceased and it makes her feel like her dad is with her. That definitely reminds people of Bo Brady. So, it really is a toss up right now whether Chomer was auditioning for Ciara or another character.
There has been controversy over Ciara ever since Vivian Jovanni took over the role. The children of Salem were aged rapidly and one day, they morphed into teenagers. Even though she looks a lot like Hope Brady, some fans were not happy with the casting decision. At one point, there was even a petition for Days Of Our Lives to fire Jovanni because one fan didn’t care for her acting.
On social media, Vivian hasn’t revealed what she is working on since leaving DOOL. In fact, it seems like the actress took a break from Instagram. Before April 2017, her last post was December 2016, when she announced she was no longer on Days Of Our Lives. A recent photo featured the actress with a short haircut. It is not known if the hairstyle change was for personal reasons or if it has to do with a new gig.
What do you think will happen to Ciara Brady on Days Of Our Lives? Was Brianna Chomer’s leaked audition tape a clue that Vivian Jovanni’s role will be recast? Or are fans jumping to conclusions?
