And because Kayla and Justin have both been with one person forever and a day and the funniness of us coming together as friends, there was nice electricity to them. It was like a childish romance. It was very sweet,” the actress expressed in an interview with TV Insider.

She also revealed her excitement over the time jump. It is a new element in the daytime soap opera world. As an actress, Mary Beth is relishing the new adventure.

“As soon as I started getting the scripts. I normally pull my scenes out because I need to hurry and memorize my stuff. But I found myself reading the scripts because what everybody is doing is so different and I think it’s so fun, “the blonde beauty shared.

Mary Beth Evans has been a staple on Days of our Lives for over three decades. Yes, she has come and gone throughout the years, but Mary Beth and Kayla are synonymous with the NBC soap opera. If she says to go along for the Kayla and Justin romance ride, shouldn’t fans listen to her?
