Emily O’Brien Addresses Taking Over the Role of Theresa

Emily O’Brien, who played Gwen Rizczech on Days of Our Lives for the last four years, has taken on a new role. She is now portraying Theresa Donovan, a character that was previously played by Jen Lilley. O’Brien addressed the change on social media, mentioning her excitement for the new role, “Don’t worry, I am sure Gwen is still smirking somewhere…” She added, “I want to take a small respite from the current events of the world to show my utmost gratitude for the opportunity to have portrayed such a beautifully layered character for the past 4 years. She has taken me through such a delicious discovery of who she is, and what she ultimately always yearned for— despite all her pain, vengeance and deceit. To be loved. Perhaps someday, somewhere away from Salem, she can finally find it.

O’Brien understands the reality of taking on a recast role and has shared her thoughts on the new chapter that lies ahead for her. She said, “Now, as for me, a new page turns from a different story…one that I am excited to explore. As I step into the shoes (and wig) of a very different character, I hope that you can approach my performance with an open mind, have fun with my interpretation, and enjoy the experience. After all, it’s just a bit of dress-up and make-believe, really.
