Exclusive! Emily O’Brien To DAYS

Emily O’Brien, who played Y&R’s Jana from 2006-11, will mark her DAYS debut as Gwen on June 5. O’Brien will be introduced as Claire’s pal at Bayview, but will have other ties on the canvas. As Head Writer Ron Carlivati teased in Digest’s Summer Preview issue, Jake’s ex-girlfriend, Gwen, will factor in to the story. “In order to put an end to this situation with the people who are after him, Jake has to track down his ex, the mischievous Gwen. I don’t want to give too much away. She is kind of the key to him resolving the issues with these bad people. It will also be interesting to see how Gabi reacts when she finds out that Jake has an ex-girlfriend.”
