Ideal Days of Lives Cast List (2012)

by lyvewired | created - 16 Sep 2012 | updated - 16 Sep 2012 | Public

I love but also loathe DOOL. I miss the days when DOOL was actually good with decent budgets for wardrobe, sets and storylines.

I'm not sure why certain characters or actors are still on the show (ie. Alison Sweeney, Shawn Christian, Camilla Banus, etc.). Totally useless.

If I were a writer at Days, I'd be (re)hiring the actors and writing for these characters.
