Kate Mansi, who joined DAYS in 2011 as Abigail Deveraux, has announced on Instagram that she is leaving the soap. "After much thought, I’ve decided the timing was right for me to set sail from Salem,” she writes. "I must say that I have thoroughly enjoyed every single beautiful and messy moment of being Abigail, and will always treasure our time together. I want to be very clear in saying that this was not a decision I took lightly. It was important for me to see Abigail through the most recent storyline, as well as through the show's historic 50th anniversary celebration.” For the full statement, click here.
