Eileen Davidson (Kristen, Days of our Lives; Ashley, Young and the Restless)In an exclusive report released today by The Hollywood Reporter, Days of our Lives has just pulled off a casting coup.

Eileen Davidson (most recently seen as Ashley Abbott on The Young and the Restless), is heading back to Salem as Kristen Blake, the long lost foster daughter of the late Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo). 

Kristen was last seen in 1998, when a body, thought to be hers, was found dead floating in a pool.  But -- and as it likely happens in soapdom -- Kristen did not die. Instead, she took up residence on a remote island after being sold into a harem! 

"I'm thrilled to embark on this new adventure at Days and excited to revisit Kristen and who knows who else! Not to mention my old friends in the cast and crew," Davidson told THR.

Long time fans will revel in her reference to "who knows who else," for at one time, she played not one, not two, not three, not four, but five simultaneous roles on Days of our Lives, for which she was nominated for the Daytime Emmy in 1998. 

She reprises the role beginning October 11, 2012.

She began as Kristen on Days in 1993 and remained until 1998.
