The Return of Carly on Days of Our Lives is "Perfect," Co-Star Says

at . Comments

Crystal Chappell is back on Days of Our Lives.

The actress has brought back the role of Carly Manning, following the little issue of stabbing her husband Lawrence.

The character has returned in order to spice up the storyline for Bo and Hope. According to Peter Reckell, this is the "perfect soap opera story."

"There is all that conflict and turmoil," the actor told Entertainment Tonight. "Which direction do I go? When Carly was around before, Hope wasn't, so I totally fell in love with her. It is between a rock and a hard place. The fact that Bo and Hope are having problems, the feelings for Carly start to come up."

Days of Our Lives fans seem excited about the possibilities.

"I actually was really surprised at the response because the news came out when I went on a publicity tour for the Emmys," said Reckell. "Almost everybody I spoke to was really excited about Crystal coming back to the show."
