Big doings in Oakdale, friends! Judi Evans -- most recently seen as Adrienne on "Days of our Lives," but also formerly of "Another World" and "Guiding Light" -- is set to make her mark on yet another daytime drama. This August, Judi is jetting from L.A. to NYC to join the cast of "As The World Turns"!
According to Soap Opera Digest, details of her character -- and just who she'll be interacting once she arrives -- are being kept under wraps. But Judi is thrilled at the prospect of getting onboard: "I need to get back to New York; I have a 20-by-20 storage unit full of furniture that I have to clean out," Judi joked.
This does mean that when Wally Kurth returns to "Days" later this summer as Justin Kiriakis, he won't have his lovely wife Adrienne by his side. But Judi will get to see some old friends in Oakdale; as she told Soap Opera Digest, "I can't wait to see Julie Pinson [Janet, "ATWT"; ex-Billie, "Days"]. I miss her!"
Coming to "ATWT" will be a change of pace for Judi, who has spent the last few years working at Rose Hills Memorial Park near Los Angeles as a "pre-need counselor."
We DO wish that she'd resurrect her former "Another World" character, Paulina. "AW" characters have appeared on "ATWT" before (Jake, Cass, etc), and we'd be thrilled to miniscule pieces if this trend continued.
We can't wait to see what kind of hijinks ensue when Judi debuts August 26th ... stay tuned for more details!
What do you think brings Judi's character to Oakdale?
