Farah Fath Still
Farah Fath is returning to daytime, but the former Days of our Lives actress isn't returning to her former home.

Fath, who started her daytime career in 1999 as Mimi Lockhart, remained with the show for nearly eight years, exiting in March. But now she's jumped ship and landed on another show on another network. Yes, the actress will begin work on ABC's One Life to Live later this year.

"I believe I stated earlier that my goal was to be working again by the fall," Fath said in a statement on her official web site in May. "Well I am back to work this September. Goals CAN be achieved! I have inked a multi-year deal with the ABC soap opera One Life to Live."

While rumors of Fath's addition have been circulating for a few weeks, they had been centered around the character of Sarah Roberts. However, that role has already been filled by Justis Bolding.

"I was considered for [Sarah] but the execs have decided to write a role just for me," Fath said. "Which is why I won't start taping for a few months. I am SO honored and excited."
