Alison Sweeney, who played the über-popular Sami Brady for 21 years on DAYS, is returning to the show next month for an extended visit. The actress, who has had a string of successful Hallmark movies since leaving the soap, is happy she was able work a Salem return into her schedule. “From my end, it takes a little bit of logistics with projects I’m working on,” she tells Digest exclusively. “And unfortunately, this year’s been hard for me because of my knee injury, so I had to push some stuff back. So, I figured out a schedule, blocked out some time that I had available and we figured it out! I’ll be shooting in Salem in May and June.” For the full story from Sweeney, be sure to pick up the new issue of Digest, on sale Friday.
