After record-breaking three-time Daytime Emmy winner Jennifer Finnigan left the role of Bridget Forrester early this year, her replacement, Emily Harrison, never really caught on with fans.  Well, we've just heard from our contacts at B&B that the role has again been recast. 

"B&B is announcing today that Ashley Jones has been cast as Bridget Forrester who returns from her graduate studies in Europe in episode 4450, which airs in the U.S. on December 17, 2004," said the spokesperson from B&B.

Jones is perhaps best known to TV audiences for her Emmy-nominated performance as Megan Dennison on The Young and the Restless (1997-2001). 

Coincidentally, Jones recently appeared in an episode of the primetime series Crossing Jordan, along with former B&B regular Jennifer Finnigan, who also played the character of Bridget on B&B.

As far as what's in store for Bridget when she returns to the canvas this December, we can only speculate.  But with Jones in the driver's seat, you can bet there will be a ton of interesting story ahead.  Stay tuned!

Freddie Smith Puts Mark On Character

As an openly gay character, Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) of Days of our Lives loves the challenge of "capturing the character."

"I do! It's exciting to be able to play this role. This is a big hot topic (being gay) in today's society,"  Smith said. "By portraying this character, I feel like I am making an impact on society, and be able to shed light on something that many people have a fear of."

This week Smith along with Chandler Massey (Will) have shared their first on air kiss. "This role gives me the opportunity to share the variety of experiences of what it is like to be gay," Smith said. "It's like do I come out? Do I stay in? This is about showing two sides."
