Days of our Lives is saying goodbye to another cast member. Kassie DePaiva is out as Eve Donovan. The actress and character will be both leave Salem in less than two weeks.
Kassie DePaiva broke the news, via Twitter, with a heartfelt letter to soap opera fans. She thanked Days fans for their continued support of Kassie, as well as Eve. There is no question Eve is not the most likable character, finding trouble pretty much from the second she set foot in Salem.
“Eve is an interesting and challenging character to bring to life. As you know, actors don’t get to write their own storylines. It is always a challenge and a delight to open the scripts and see where the writers are taking the story. My hope is that you enjoyed the journey because I certainly did,” Kassie expressed in a part of her love note to fans.

Along with OLTL and Days, she has appeared on General Hospital and Guiding Light. Kassie joined the NBC soap opera five years ago and has loved playing Eve since day one.
Fans know Eve was not the one who pushed Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) off the bistro balcony, even though she was convicted of the crime. Eve is currently in prison, but thanks to Abigail’s (Kate Mansi) persistence to reopen her mother’s case, the Salem P.D. now has new evidence to exonerate her.
