Robin Mattson To DAYS
Soap Opera Digest/Weekly can report that popular soap alum Robin Mattson (ex-Cheri, ATWT; ex-Susan, B&B; ex-Janet, AMC; ex-Heather, GH et al) has been cast as Lee, who will appear in the prison with Stacy Haiduk's warden. She will first air in October.

Melissa Reeves Back To Salem
TV Guide’s Michael Logan reports that Melissa Reeves (Jennifer, DAYS) will be returning to the show in September. Reeves, who was back in June for the on-air farewell to Frances Reid (ex-Alice), told Digest she was open to a more steady return. "It's sort of in their ballpark," she noted at the time. "I love it. I am here in L.A. anyway, and the kids aren't little anymore. They don't need me following them every second. I'm open to working." The actress will be part of a juicy storyline set for November sweeps.

Another DAYS Starlet Axed
Soap Opera Digest has learned exclusively that Gabriela Rodriguez (Gabi) has been let go and replaced with Camila Banus (ex-Lola, OLTL). The move was made to age the character a bit. Banus reports to Salem today, July 30. This comes on the heels of Lindsay Hartley's ouster as Gabi's on-screen sis Arianna.
