There's been an influx of Harmony onto DAYS OF OUR LIVES over the past few months. First, Eric Martsolf, formerly Ethan Winthrop, was given new soap life as John Black's number one son, Brady. Then, leading man Galen Gering, formerly super cop Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald, transformed into Salem FBI man Rafe. Now, in the most ironic of turns, Lindsay Hartley, last seen as Passions' ditzy darling Theresa, is joining Days as Brady's new love interest and Rafe's sister. Of course, Hartley has plenty of appropriate chemistry with both actors, since she already played Martsolf's love and Gering's sister on that other NBC soap. There's only one more move left for Days to make for this whole crazy casting situation to come full circle. The show needs to bring Mackenzie Westmore (ex-Sheridan) aboard to play Rafe's deceased fiancé, Emily, in flashbacks. Heck, they wouldn't even really need to hire her. They could probably get away with just using some old Luis/Sheridan footage.
