Former One Life To Live actress Kassie DePaiva has reportedly left the NBC show ‘Days of our Lives’ after over a year of playing the lead role of Eve Donovan. The 54 year old actress first debuted as Eve Donovan in early 2014, in the July 18th episode. The character of Eve was first introduced in the year 1987 all the way to 1991 in the form of actress Charlotte Ross as the daughter of Shane Donovan and Gabrielle Pascal and the half-sister of Theresa (Jen Lilley) and Andrew Donovan IV. She recently lost her only daughter Paige Larson (played by True O’Brien) after she was murdered by a serial killer. So her leaving town makes a perfect sense, so she could start over with her life.
Eve will leave behind her half-sister Theresa Donovan by leaving town, but not before she punishes the serial killer who took the life of her beloved daughter. The character of Eve will continue to air all the way till late 2016. After Eve leaves and the writers write her off, will they bring back Andrew Donovan? I hope they do, so I can see the bonding between the two siblings, Theresa and Andrew. The character of Andrew was last portrayed by actor Brian Davila from 1991 to 1992. So if the writers decide to bring the character back by recasting the role would be the best thing ever. Not that Theresa doesn’t have people who care about her if her life, but the more characters, the better. Eve and Theresa’s brother could fill the shoe of Eve’s absense. It sucks big time that she’s leaving the show. I loved the bond she shared with her half-sister Theresa, and now because of her character being written out, fans wont get to see their bond anymore.
Mrs DePaiva is happily married to James DePaiva, and together they have a son called JQ DePaiva who is also an actor. He starred in a few episodes of ‘All My Children’ in 2007. Once Kassie departs from the soap opera show, I wonder what her plans would be. But something tells me that she will star on another soap opera. Why? Because she’s that good.
