Alison Sweeney is back filming on the DAYS set, so look for Sami to pop up again in Salem later this year. The actress admits she feels a little pressure to live up to the hype of her 2017 comeback, where Will was revealed to be alive. “That return was successful, and the storyline was so well-received,” she tells Digest. “I loved every minute of it, and those are big shoes to fill. Great stories like that don’t just grow on trees, and it was so great and freeing to admit to Ron [Carlivati, head writer] that I was nervous because it’s such a compliment to him in his writing. But it was great because he said the same thing, ‘Yeah, no kidding!’ I think he felt that same pressure, which was comforting to me to know that it matters to him as much as it does to me.” She teases that her new tale is “super-exciting, definitely a roller-coaster ride and really fun.” For the full story, pick up the new issue of Digest, on sale Friday.
