WELCOME to Soap Opera News
There are so many reasons why we just love Kassie DePaiva! She spent years on daytime where she became a household name. DePaiva is one of the best in the genre, her years on daytime include roles on 'One Life to Live', 'General Hospital', 'Days of Our Lives' and 'Guiding Light'.
DePaiva's first daytime role was on 'Guiding Light' where she played Chelsea Reardon from 1986 - 1991. She spent years thrilling daytime viewers with her performance on the now defunct soap opera before moving on to 'One Life to Live'. Her role on 'OLTL' still keep fans talking even though the show is no longer around. She brought life to Blair Cramer everyday as she played that role on the ABC daytime soap opera. She played the role from 1993 - 2012 when the show was on the ABC network and likewise in 2013 when the show was rebooted.
DePaiva for a short period of time when ABC cancelled 'OLTL' made a few appearances on its sister soap 'General Hospital' keeping Blair Cramer alive. She then moved on to another soap opera where she worked really hard. 'Days of Our Lives' viewers were introduced to DePaiva in the role of Eve Donovan in 2014. We watch her display her raw talent as her character went head-to-head with Jennifer [Melissa Reeves]. And, we were brought to tears with her performance when her daughter died. She left the role in early 2016 but recently made an appearance which has left viewers crying out for a full time return.
DePaiva is not only known for her roles on daytime television but also on several movies and in primetime. Earlier this year she made an appearance on the primetime series 'Castle' as Joanna Masters, also she made appearances on 'Baywatch' and 'Melrose Place'. Her acting career includes movie roles on films such as Evil Dead II and We Are What We Are. For her roles she also received a couple daytime Emmy nominations and Soap Opera Digest award nominations.
She has been married to former 'One Life to Live' co-star James DePaiva since 1996 and their gave birth to their first child James Quentin DePaiva on May 12, 1997. DePaiva is not only known for her acting abilities but also for her tendency to care about others and her singing talent.
