At the Day of DAYS, newest cast member Thia Megia was introduced as Hayley Chen. “It’s surreal,” the AMERICAN IDOL alum told the crowd. “It’s such an honor… As far as my character, she’s had to endure so much in her past and to take on a role where she’s just full of strength and she’s such a vast character with so much depth. I’m just so grateful that they chose me to tell her story. It’s been amazing.” Look for her to cross paths with JJ.
