Days of Our Lives Louise Sorel Return Vivian Alamain

Days of Our Lives: Louise Sorel to Return

Maybe that Bollywood career didn’t work out the way Days of Our Lives‘ Vivian planned?

Louise Sorel soon will return to the NBC soap, Soap Opera Digest reports. Sorel has played villainess Vivian Alamain off and on for 25 years.

The news leaked via fellow daytime vet Robin Strasser’s Twitter account Wednesday; NBC later confirmed.

Sorel, a Santa Barbara alum, joined the sudser in 1992 and quickly established herself as a get-things-done baddie. (Remember when she buried Carly alive? Good times.) She exited the series in 2000 but returned in 2009 for a two-year stint which ended when she was let go. The show’s writers sent Vivian off to a life of stardom in India with her former hired thug Ivan.

Are you excited to have Sorel back in Salem? Sound off in the comments!

    I knew it!!!

  2. Carrie says:

    OMG YES!

  3. S McMary says:

    I’ve been a fan of Louise Sorel both from her Santa Barbara and Days days so this is good news. I used to love when the old soap magazines would do a piece on her because she was even more funny and outrageous than her characters at times! It would be great if it was a package deal where both Vivian and Ivan come back together. Ivan would never abandon his “Madame”

  4. Deney says:

    Glad she’s back. Kassie also. Can’t wait to see Will .

  5. Tomm Huntre says:

    No confirmation or denial yet about Tyler Christopher joining Days??

  6. Chloe says:

    I love Vivian!!! Can’t wait for her to return. And please, please tell me she’s bringing Ivan, too!!

  7. GuessWhat says:

    they all come back!

  8. David says:

    I’m so happy to see this. First Will and now Vivian? I’ve started watching Days again and am wishing their returns were happening sooner.

  9. Angelfan says:

    Vivian without Ivan is like a day without sunshine.

  10. SUSAN LEE says:

  11. SUSAN LEE says:

    Glad to see Vivian back…They need something…

  12. Jermey says:

    One of my favorite characters on the show!

  13. L Daniels says:

    Im glad she’s coming back, they need to bring several back, the storylines from years ago were the best, I know the show has to cast young people but geez the majority on DOOL suck. Ive watched for 45 years,I hope they get ratings up,would hate to see this show end

  14. Julie Capri says:

    So happy that Vivian, Eve, and Will are coming back, can’t wait to see them !!!

  15. Jack says:

    Love Vivian!!

  17. Bunny says:

    Loved Louise’s character. She and her sidekick Ivan were the only ones with a sense of humor. Hope Ivan will come back too.

  18. Terry Campbell says:

    Would rather see EJ Dimera (James Scott) come back. What a wonderful actor!

  19. Judy Hausler says:

    Yes!! Double trouble yay

  20. Ken says:

    Hell Yes! I live Vivian. So glad to see her back. Let’s keep her for awhile. Please

  21. Wendy Crosby says:

    No!Too many “OLD” people on this show already. Old people and old plots. How many times is Marlana going to be captured?

    • Margatet says:

      Wendy, I agree with you. Def too many old people on Days. I’m 67 and so many were on before I started watching, according to my older sisters.

    • Linda Warren says:

      Yes the Hattie/Marlena switch and the Adrienne/Bonnie switch are not original and I can’t stand the bad girls including Angelica!!@

  22. J m says:

    I would watch DAYS once again if Sorel returns. Please DAYS give this wonderful actor a great storyline. I watched DAYS in the 90’s when her scheming and funny lines caught my attention, then she left and I stopped watching. While at it, bring back Robin Strasser back daytime as well, miss Dorian Lord ( enter last names)

    • Jackie Abercrombie says:

      Good! I’d love to see Louise again! And wouldn’t it be fab if they cast Robin Strausser as Vivian’s sister? ☺

  23. jane pappas says:

    “Stupid is what stupid does.” That’s what I think about bringing back Vivian Alamain.

  24. Cat says:

    So glad she is coming back

  25. Betty Fox says:

    Luv Vivian! Glad to have so many
    Pros coming back!
    Getting back to former good Days
    Is great.
    Best thing Days did was to get writer
    It has been awhile but Days is back

  26. CM says:
