The list of possible actresses for the role on Days Of Our Lives was finally narrowed down to only Morgan Fairchild and Donna Mills. In the end, casting went with the Morgan Fairchild as the newest resident of Salem. Social media posts indicate that fans approve of the decision. There are many references to what a great villain Fairchild is known to play.

As Days Of Our Lives fans know, Tripp wants more information on his mother’s murder, and he doesn’t believe Steve and Kayla are being truthful. His instincts are right on target. Steve is covering for his son, Joey, who is the real killer. Steve insists to Tripp that he is the killer, but he was ordered to execute her by the ISA. We have heard Tripp tell his uncle he thinks Steve is covering for Kayla.

Of course, Tripp has taken on a new roommate that holds some answers. Jade isn’t known for being loyal, and the Johnson family knows this. With her having already made a slip of the tongue about Steve covering for someone he cares about, Days Of Our Lives fans are waiting for the big bombshell hint to drop from her. She is very bitter after the break up with Joey and will be even more upset as Kayla puts a stop to the money they have been providing to help her.

Morgan Fairchild is a seasoned actress that is known for playing wonderful characters in various soaps and on primetime TV. With the level of grace and style she brings to the small screen, Days Of Our Lives fans are in for a treat. To see her team up with her grandson to unravel the sordid details of Ava’s murder as the two get to know each other will bring many twists and turns. Days Of Our Lives fans know that Ava’s father despised Steve (aka “Patch” to Ava). Chances are very good that Fairchild’s character will hold the same sentiment for him. There are sure to be some heated moments between the two sides as Tripp and his grandmother dig for the truth.
