Days of Our Lives fans are about to see another character return to Salem. The role of Claire is currently being cast by NBC producers. According to We Love Soaps, Claire is the daughter of Shawn Brady and Belle Black-Brady, and will be rapidly aged, as so many soap opera children are, to be a teenager when we see her next.
Days of Our Lives viewers have not seen little Claire since she left Salem with her parents, Shawn and Belle, to sail around the world, much like Shawn did with his mom and dad, Bo and Hope Brady, when he was a child. However, now Claire will return home to Salem as a 15-year-old girl who is looking to make it in music and art.
Producers are reportedly looking for a young lady with blonde hair, blue eyes, and who can sing for the role of Miss Brady. The character is said to be off beat and slightly quirky. The role is set to start filming as early as June, so viewers will likely get a glimpse of Claire Brady later this year.
Meanwhile, Soap Shows reports that this isn’t the first time Claire Brady has been rapidly aged. The child was born to Belle in 2005, back when everyone believed that Phillip Kiriakis was her father, and was aged from a baby to preschooler overnight in 2007. Claire survived a kidnapping, and left Salem with her parents back in 2008.
The details of Claire’s return to Days of Our Lives are still unclear, as it seems Shawn and Belle are not returning with their young daughter. Will Claire live with her grandmother Hope Brady, or other set of grandparents Marlena Evans and John Black? It’s tough to say, but the possibility of Claire bringing Shawn and Belle back to Salem in the future is already exciting fans.
Meanwhile, another Salem child is about to be rapidly aged as well. Steve and Kayla Johnson’s son, Joey, will be seen in the very near future as a teenager as well, and rumors of Hope’s daughter, Sierra, and Aiden’s son, Chase, making the jump to teens are flying too. Will Salem soon be crawling with young teenagers who remind us of Claire’s parents, Shawn and Belle, and their crew, which included Phillip, Chloe, Mimi, and Rex? We certainly hope so.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Belle’s big brother, Brady Black, recently had his own child, Tate, with ex-girlfriend Theresa Donovan, and John Black found out he has another son in former professional baseball player Paul Norita. So, when Claire returns to Salem she’ll have some new family members to get acquainted with.
